Days Nitpicks & Flubs Week Of 9/25/23

Nitpicks & Flubs

 

by Michele & Cheryl

Kate Roberts

Monday

Philip didn’t ask Rex if he talked to Roman about the baby. He was only worried about Kate as if Roman isn’t his father too.

Sarah’s flashback could be heard before it was shown.

Why would Rex tell Philip about Sarah’s baby being Xander’s in public? He should have done that in private.

You can hear Kate talking while Justin was shown.

Tuesday

Chloe cried without any tears.

Roman said “grammar” instead of “grandma.”

Justin cried without any tears.

Who had Victoria once Xander interrupted Rex and Sarah? Sarah and Xander were together and didn’t have the baby. Rex, Kate and Roman were inside the pub, but the baby wasn’t on the table. Philip went to see Chloe and didn’t have the baby with him.

Wednesday

It was daytime on Tuesday when Xander and Sarah were talking outside of the pub, but it was nighttime in this episode.

Chloe said she knew Xander had feelings for Sarah. If she felt that way, why did she agree to marry him?

Chloe told Philip her feelings for him came back when she saw him again. If she was still in love with Philip, she shouldn’t care that Xander had feelings for Sarah.

Thursday

Nicole looks like she’s ready to go into labor. She wasn’t that far along the last time she was shown.

Eric conveniently had a picture of him and Nicole together.

Marlena happened to know Sloan’s address. Is her address public knowledge to everyone?

Friday

Sonny was talking while Vivian was shown.

Who told Kate about Victor having a second will? There weren’t too many people who knew the truth so why would any of them tell Kate about it?

Gwen was obvious that she knew the truth about Dimitri and Sonny. She wasn’t acting so knowingly before the audience found out that she knew the truth.

Days Opinions For The Week Of 9/25/23

Opinion Article

 

by Michele & Cheryl

Xander Cook

This was quite a week. We had two paternity reveals in one week. We will get into that soon. We also saw a couple of people put others ahead of themselves. We were shocked to see that happen because they have shown how selfish they could be. Someone was put in her place, and we couldn’t be happier about that. Without any further delay, we will talk about this week’s episodes of Days Of Our Lives.

We are disappointed in the writers for what they are doing to Victor’s memory. We understand that John Aniston passed away so they wrote out Victor. We don’t have a problem with that. We do have a problem with the fact that his character is being destroyed to boost up the storyline. We found out that Justin isn’t Alex’s father. Victor is his father. We read the spoilers so we knew that “plot twist” was coming, but we weren’t happy about when we read it. We don’t approve of the fact that Victor betrayed Justin the way he did. We weren’t watching Days when Anjelica was on the show, but we are familiar with the fact that she was with Justin. We don’t believe that Victor would have hurt Justin by being with her. Maggie and Justin found out the ugly truth while they were reading Victor’s second will. It was a classic soap moment, but the writers have decided to rewrite the soap’s history with this plot point. We don’t approve of this twist. We are big fans of twists. Twists give us a chance to be shocked and we’re normally here for them. We just didn’t like what they decided to do with this plot twist.

We can’t stress enough that Victor wouldn’t have done that to him. There was no hint at all that Victor hurt Justin that way. We are watching a show take place in Salem. How did a secret like that stay hidden all these years? We all know that people talk about their secrets in the open all the time. It’s hard to believe that Victor didn’t have one conversation about something that big. The characters talk about the smallest secrets out loud all the time, but he managed to keep this one hidden. He also could have told Maggie this secret. The writers didn’t have to butcher Victor’s character again just because he’s no longer with us. Victor was never a saint on the show, but he wouldn’t have done that to his favorite nephew. It’s obvious that the writers wanted to build up Alex’s character so he had to become Victor’s son. We get that the writers love the actor so much they will come up with any way to give him screentime, but this didn’t make any sense at all. It’s a blatant attempt to build up a useless character by giving him a storyline like this one. Speaking of Alex, we will get to him next.

Alex was hit with a huge shock when he found out that Justin isn’t his biological father. He had a right to be upset and shocked. His reaction to that was understandable, but he didn’t think about the shock that Justin had. He found out that a man he raised wasn’t his son. Justin was heartbroken by the news, but he didn’t want things to change between them. Alex had to be in his feelings about it and wanted to be alone. Justin tried to assure him that nothing had to change between them, but that didn’t matter to Alex. Sonny also showed up to let him know that things didn’t have to change and that they were brothers. Alex said that Justin wasn’t his father and that he wasn’t his brother. We wanted to throw something at the screen while we listened to that garbage. We couldn’t believe the way Alex was acting. He was talking to a man who was adopted that Justin wasn’t his father anymore. They are still family regardless of which man is his father. We were waiting for Alex to tell Sonny about being adopted. The writers missed a beat by not having Sonny mention that he wasn’t biologically related, but still considered Justin his father. Unfortunately, the writers dropped the ball when they missed that beat. We aren’t fans of Alex’s character as it is, and this upcoming storyline isn’t going to make us root for him. We are hoping that the letter was a forgery, and that Alex isn’t really Victor’s son.

It’s time to get to the other paternity reveal. This reveal was more exciting to us than the previous one. We were waiting for this one to be revealed. It was a contrived reveal, but it got the story out so we won’t complain. Chloe heard Rex tell Philip about Sarah’s baby being Xander’s. Rex was an idiot for talking about something like that outside so anyone could hear it. This man spilled his guts out and told Philip everything about Sarah’s baby and how she still loves Xander. It would make sense to look around before you start talking about something important like that. Anyway, Chloe heard them and could have kept the secret. Chloe went to Xander and told him the truth about Sarah’s baby. We weren’t sure if she was going to say anything about it. She knew the risk and told him the truth anyway. We were surprised that she actually did that. She didn’t beat around the bush. She told him the truth. Chloe deserves a round of applause for what she did. She knew Xander could have gone running to Sarah as soon as he heard the truth. He wanted to stay with her, but she wouldn’t let him do it. She wanted him to find Sarah and be with her. She might have been saving face, but we will give her the applause she deserves for doing the right thing.

Philip also deserves a round of applause this week. He knew the truth about Sarah’s baby and could have used the opportunity to destroy Xander and Chloe’s relationship with it. He could have made a move on her, but he didn’t do that. He wanted to make her feel better about it. He put her feelings ahead of his own. He wanted to be a friend to her. We have been Phloe fans so it was nice to see him being a comforting friend instead of scheming to get her back with the information. We do wish that Jay Kenneth Johnston were playing the role when this story unfolded, but we’ll take what we can get at this point. We do have a complaint about these two.

Chloe claimed that she wasn’t over Philip. We weren’t sure what was going on with that. She didn’t give Philip a thought since he was gone and now she suddenly had feelings for him. Give us a break. We love Philip and Chloe together, but we’re not buying that she suddenly had feelings for him out of the blue. The writers will have to do better than that. She was just in love with Brady when she fell for Xander so we don’t believe that she never got over Philip. She has been with several men while he was gone so we don’t believe that she suddenly fell for him again. We want them back together, but we don’t want it to be a rebound thing or something rushed. We know we’re not going to get either one so it’s hard to be happy about them possibly getting back together. We would have loved to watch a Phloe reunion, but we know it won’t happen the way we want it to happen.

Let’s shift gears a little and talk about the showdown we were waiting to see. Xander confronted Sarah about keeping the truth about Victoria from him. He rightfully yelled at her for keeping the truth about her from him. She had the gall to try and justify her actions. She kept putting him down as if that excused her behavior. We loved that he didn’t back down to her. He called her out for her actions. She was playing judge and jury with their baby. We were cheering him on when he told her that he had the right to know the truth about the baby. He had every right to tell her about herself. She didn’t have the right to keep the truth from him. She had a lot of nerve doing that because she’s not a saint. She threw up his past mistakes in his face. It’s too bad that he didn’t remind her what she did when she kidnapped Rachel. She proved that Xander wasn’t the only one who could make mistakes. We don’t know why she thought she would win the argument by throwing his mistakes up at him. She’s not perfect so she shouldn’t have judged him. We don’t normally root for Xander, but we had to do it with this story. She was walking around like Miss High and Mighty as if she is without sin. She should have listened to Maggie when she kept driving it home that she tell Xander about Victoria being his daughter. She thought she was right to do it and she paid for it when he went off about it.

It’s time to talk about Gwen. She was acting very different this week. As we all know, Gwen seemed like she was in the dark when it concerned Dimitri and Leo being together. She appeared to believe everything they told her. For some reason, her attitude changed. Now she’s parading around as if she knew the truth all along. She is being smug towards Leo and bragging about what’s going on with Dimitri. She also kept doting over Dimitri when she caught them. It’s funny how easily she caught them together this week when Dimitri had his pants down and she didn’t think anything of it. She could blow Dimitri and Leo out of the water by getting away from him. She doesn’t gain anything by staying with him. He is making her look like a fool so she could stop him from getting his inheritance and that would be the perfect revenge for her. She works at the newspaper so she would be fine if he lost his inheritance. She could also fire Leo from the paper to pay him back for what he did to her. It’s just too obvious that she knows the truth now. Dimitri and Leo should know that she knows the truth because she’s acting different from how she was before.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Diane: Has the financial team attached a name to that account?

Jack: No, they’re still working on it.

Diane: This is serious, jack. Whoever’s doing this, whether it’s phyllis or someone else, has access to our financials and they’re being pretty brazen about it.

Jack: I have frozen all of our accounts, contacted all our vendors. Nothing is going to happen until we figure this out.

Diane: Better not be phyllis. All right, I’ve got a meeting at the club. Will you please text me as soon as you hear?

Jack: Yeah, promise.

Diane: Okay, bye.

Billy: Call the financial department. Tell them to stop looking.

Jack: Wait, what does that mean?

Billy: My name’s gonna come up on that account, jack. It’s the same thing that happened last time. They’re trying to make you believe that I embezzled money from our family company.

Jack: And by they, you mean tucker?

Billy: With an assist from phyllis? Yes.

Jack: But why? What could he gain from this?

Billy: To rattle us. Get us off our– our game, you know, put us on our heels. Let us know that he can hit us whenever he wants.

Jack: With phyllis doing his dirty work or not doing his dirty work.

Billy: She needs money, badly. We know what happens when she gets desperate.

Jack: Yes, I know all too well. So much for changing her life.

Billy: Yes.

Jack: What I don’t understand is why are they targeting only you?

Tucker: I’m not really interested in running jabot. Maybe as an advisor or something. You know, this whole takeover is really about nothing but yanking it away from jack abbott.

Audra: A purely vindictive move.

Tucker: One hundred percent. I want to punish the abbotts. I want to just– I want to hit him where it hurts. ‘Cause as far as I’m concerned, they shattered any chance I had with ashley. Any future.

Audra: Look as always, I give you an a+ for creativity. But, your ability to pull this off? I mean, not so much. I mean, don’t you think they suspect that you’re coming and are gearing up for it?

Tucker: They absolutely do. They’ve essentially told me so.

Audra: And that doesn’t worry you?

Tucker: I have a secret weapon.

Audra: What’s that?

Tucker: Not a what, a who. Billy abbott. Good evening, esther. Hi. It’s a lovely evening, is it not?

Esther: What do you have?

Audra: Double espresso.

[ Tucker speaks foreign language ]

Esther: Two double espressos coming up.

Audra: That went well.

Tucker: Yeah. I need to talk to you.

Audra: Go ahead.

Tucker: Let’s go out on the patio.

Audra: Geez.

Tucker: What did you and nikki talk about after I left?

Audra: Funny you should ask. We were talking about you.

Tucker: And?

Audra: Well, she warned me to stay as far away from you as humanly possible.

Danny: Seriously. Is everything okay, phyllis?

Phyllis: Oh, I’m great. It’s just been a pretty long day. That’s all. What are you doing here?

Danny: I’ve got some business and uh, I wanted to check in on daniel. See how he’s getting along.

Phyllis: Oh. Does daniel know you’re here?

Danny: Yeah. Yeah, he’s meeting me here.

Phyllis: Oh, nice. What?

Danny: Oh, sorry. It’s a little strange seeing you in the flesh. Last time I was in this room, I watched you die.

Phyllis: Oh, yeah. That.

Danny: Yeah. A pretty unforgettable moment.

Phyllis: Yeah. Right. Jeremy stark was coercing me to do that. He was threatening me and my family. You should know this. And the judge showed mercy on me and didn’t send me to prison.

Danny: Yeah, I know. I know. Daniel’s been keeping me up to speed on all this.

Phyllis: That’s good. You should also know I’m now the town pariah, sort of like the old days. Everybody’s staring at me and pointing fingers at me and I should be wearing a big scarlet letter on my chest. Um, from what all the fine citizens of genoa city are putting me through right now.

Danny: Okay. So you’re the victim now?

Phyllis: No.

Danny: Well, it sounds as if you think you are.

Phyllis: Okay. So, you’re angry now.

Danny: Oh, I am beyond angry with you, phyllis. Yes, I know there were extenuating circumstances, but what you did was horrible. I mean, you know what makes it worse? You did it to people who care about you. Who believed in you.

Phyllis: Don’t you think I know that?

Danny: Then stop whining about how badly everybody’s treating you around here. Take accountability for a change.

Phyllis: Okay, okay, okay. Okay. And I am trying to take accountability and I have asked for forgiveness from everyone. I’m gonna ask for forgiveness from you, please. I’m trying to make amends.

Danny: Nice speech.

Phyllis: It’s more than just a speech.

Danny: Okay, prove it.

Phyllis: Well, tell me what I have to do.

Danny: Why do you even care, phyllis? I mean, yes, we share a son and we shared a life together, but that was a long time ago.

Phyllis: I care what you think about me. I just do. Do you think I’m worthy of a second chance? Are you tired of clean clothes that just don’t smell clean?

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by… doesn’t your family deserve the best?

Daniel: Dad, hey, it’s good to see you.

Danny: Hey, it’s good to see you too, son.

Daniel: What, what, what, what’s going on here? Is this a little family reunion you forgot to tell me about?

Phyllis: Uh, no, we just ran into each other and we were reminiscing about old times.

Danny: No, we were discussing your mother’s declaration that she’s a changed person and wants to make amends for her behavior and just saying it is not enough. She’s gonna have to prove it this time.

Daniel: Oh.

Danny: Yeah.

Daniel: Speaking of which, have you given any more thought to my job offer?

Phyllis: Uh, still thinking about it.

Danny: Wow. Kind of like history repeating itself, don’t you think?

Daniel: Yeah, you really would.

Danny: Do you remember how difficult it was talking her into joining in omegasphere when it first got started?

Phyllis: Yeah, but then he was offering me a huge position with the company. Worthy of my skills and talents and now I don’t even know what I’m gonna be doing. My guess is I’ll be under the microscope, every single day, seeing if I behave.

Daniel: That doesn’t make the job any less legitimate or the paycheck any less real.

Danny: No, it doesn’T. In fact, this might be the answer. Your mother needs to be put to the test. Hey, you said you wanted a second chance. Well, this might be your one opportunity to show everybody you really have changed.

Tucker: Did nikki threaten to fire you?

Audra: She didn’t come right out and say it.

Tucker: But it was implied? Yeah. Unfortunately, it’s not a great career move to be associating with tucker mccall.

Audra: Definitely not.

Tucker: Will I have to suffer the same fate as kyle?

Audra: Stop. I didn’t agree.

Tucker: Oh, you took a defiant stand, did you?

Audra: Well, I made it very clear to nikki that, you know, while I admired her and I– I enjoyed working with her. I just didn’t appreciate her trying to tell me how to live my private life.

Tucker: Good for you.

Audra: Yeah.

Tucker: And she still didn’t fire you.

Audra: You know, I actually think she was impressed, I stood my ground. She even offered to be my mentor.

Tucker: That’s rich.

Audra: Yes, it is.

Tucker: I’d stay away from that.

Audra: Um, I– I think she meant it.

Tucker: No, she didn’t mean it. What she meant to do was flatter you and therefore, control you. Now, you would do well to maintain a respectable distance from nikki’s mentorship. The good news, however, is that you wouldn’t have to worry about either pleasing or upsetting her if you are still interested in, uh, changing trains and joining me on the jabot express.

Billy: I don’t know why he’s coming after me first. I’m sure he’s betting on you believing that history’s gonna repeat itself. That I’m gonna make a dumb, stupid move like that. But just let’s be honest about this, okay? It’s not gonna stop with me. Tucker blames our entire family for his personal life blowing up and he wants blood.

Jack: And he’s not looking inside jabot for allies anymore.

Billy: No, that ship has sailed.

Jack: We need a solid line of defense.

Billy: I agree. What happened when you met with adam? We’re gonna find out about this information he has on tucker, right?

Jack: Damn.

Billy: Damn what, jack?

Jack: I have been so caught up with mamie coming into town, with all these money transfers, I forgot to check my email to see if he sent anything.

Billy: Okay. Well, let’s do that now.

Jack: Yeah, he sent something this morning.

Billy: Please, tell me this is good news.

Jack: It’s better than good news. It’s the mother lode. -We’re done. -What about these?

Danny: Thank you.

Daniel: You know, I understand that you’re used to high profile jobs, mom, but I gotta be honest with you, I really just don’t trust you yet with anything that might compromise my business.

Phyllis: Are you kidding me? You think that I would intentionally try to sabotage your business?

Daniel: No, not intentionally and not maliciously, but you cannot help yourself but take a shortcut if you see it. And I just can’t afford any of your shortcuts right now.

Danny: What daniel is trying to explain is that we are long past the point where we just take what you say at face value. We’ve been burned too many times.

Phyllis: Okay. I mean, I get it. I get that you’re not really seeing any– listen, you haven’t seen me do anything to change. I understand that. But in my defense and it’s not an excuse, but I’m still dealing with the aftermath, you know, the whole fallout to everything that jeremy stark put me through.

Daniel: I know. I know. And I understand that. What’s going on with all that?

Phyllis: Oh, well, good news. Um, I found the account that jeremy stark was hiding all of my money in and I’m able to pay back the insurance company.

Daniel: That was fast. I mean, the other day, you didn’t know what you were gonna do. What changed?

Phyllis: Yeah. Uh, you know, it’s funny, michael. Michael got his team of investigators on it and they were able to track down some offshore account, one of jeremy stark’s, you know, offshore accounts. And anyway, I’m free and clear.

Daniel: Okay. Well, I guess I for one am happy that, that weight’s been lifted off of your shoulders.

Danny: Yeah, I guess that means there’s no more excuses. Time to do what you say you’re gonna do.

Audra: You know, I have to hand it to you, tucker. Only you would actually believe you could take jabot away from the abbotts and make it sound easy.

Tucker: It’s more than a belief. It’s a certainty.

Audra: Hm. How so, evil genius?

Tucker: Yeah, you mock. I’m serious as a rattlesnake.

Audra: It was a compliment.

Tucker: Ah, thank you. So, I have put in motion a plan to raise suspicion that billy abbott has been embezzling from jabot.

Audra: How did you manage that?

Tucker: Uh, details are boring.

Audra: Jack and billy aren’t that stupid, okay? They’re gonna know right away that you’re behind this.

Tucker: Good. Let’ em. That’s exactly what I want ’em to think.

Billy: What’s the headline?

Jack: Tucker and audra were involved in a cover-up at mccall that involved a singer and some underage girls.

Billy: Oh, my gosh. What? What? So, how– how bad was it?

Jack: Well, they covered up the cover-up. Probably to save the integrity of the company, but the guy was still arrested.

Billy: I mean, tucker, he just gets worse and worse. I mean, that’s sleazy, even for him. Adam has the evidence? We sure about that?

Jack: How, I’m not sure.

Billy: Okay. So what does he want for it?

Jack: Nothing.

Billy: Jack, it’s adam, okay. He doesn’t do anything for free, especially when he thinks he’s doing you a favor.

Jack: I’m telling you, this was free. Maybe this is part of his redemption or a persona that he’s trying to sell to victor.

Billy: No, I don’t believe that. Nothing is for free when it comes to adam.

Jack: There was one caveat. In the future, he might ask for me to return the favor.

Billy: Well, there you go. New and improved adam.

Jack: We don’t have to worry about that now. We have something here and we are gonna hit tucker hard with it.

Billy: I would like the honors of looking in his eye when I tell him that we have the upper hand.

Jack: Okay. Fine. You take care of that. And see that the money is transferred back to the jabot accounts.

Billy: Yeah, of course. I was gonna do it as soon as I got out of here.

Jack: It’s just– just a little reminder.

Billy: Okay. Can I ask you a question?

Jack: Sure, shoot.

Billy: Do you, uh, do you believe that I would actually embezzle money from the family company?

Jack: Billy, come on.

Billy: No, I’m serious. It’s– it’s just, I– I need, I need to know this. I mean, are you… look, I have history, jack. Okay. I wouldn’t put it past you to believe that I could do something like that, but in this moment right now, I need to know. Do you fully believe that tucker and phyllis are behind this embezzlement act? Or do you, for a second, still wonder if it was me?

Jack: No, billy. I did not ever think you would do this to us.

Billy: Okay, I appreciate that.

Jack: I wouldn’t put anything past tucker or phyllis for that matter. You were right. It has her name written all over it.

Billy: Well, I’ll give you the honors of dealing with phyllis.

Jack: I tell you, that’s the part that probably bugs me the most. Phyllis had other options. If she had played it straight, if she had been truthful, if she had shown she could be trusted, there are any number of people who could have helped her, myself included.

Billy: Well, some people like staying on the dark side. It’s familiar to them, it makes them feel comfortable. Trust me, I’ve been there. I get it. And tucker is the kind of guy that can exploit that. Make them feel like his way is the only way out.

Jack: That’s why we have to stop him now.

Tucker: So, the attacks on billy, setting up the idea that he’s involved in some kind of financial malfeasance, it’s just a diversion. A smokescreen for what I’m actually planning.

Audra: Does it include all the blind items you’ve planted in the gossip columns?

Tucker: I want the abbotts to believe that I’m planning my attack over here–

Audra: While you’re really making moves over there. You play chess, while they–

Tucker: While they play checkers.

Audra: So, what exactly is over there?

Tucker: Ah, it’s nothing special. Just something they will never see coming.

Phyllis: Okay, guys, I get it. You’ve been through this before with me, right? And I let you down every time. Listen, I feel like I’m on the right path this time. I do. I realize how much I have to lose if I screw up again. So, this is what I’m gonna do. So, if, um, nick and sharon don’t offer me that position, all right? If they don’t want me to work with their company, um, I will take whatever– whatever job you offer me at omegasphere. I will take it and I will do a bang-up job and I will follow directions and I will make you proud.

Daniel: It’s all I could ask of you.

Phyllis: Mm. You’re not convinced.

Danny: I want to believe every word you’re saying, I do.

Phyllis: But you can’t?

Danny: I’ll say this much. If you follow through with this and you really, really show us this time, I would be so proud of you, phyllis. You have no idea how proud. I’m jonathan lawson getting this?

Jack: Phyllis, could I have a word with you, alone if you don’t mind?

Phyllis: I thought I was dead to you.

Jack: Gentlemen, uh, if you could give us a little privacy, I won’t be long.

Danny: Sure, jack. Uh, listen, phyllis, daniel and I are gonna grab a bite to eat. You wanna join us after this conversation?

Phyllis: Uh, let’s see how it goes.

Daniel: Is everything all right here?

Jack: Phyllis is in no imminent danger.

Phyllis: We just have some business to talk about. That’s fine.

Danny: All right. Let’s go.

Jack: Thank you, gentlemen.

Phyllis: All right. What’s up?

Jack: I think you know why I’m here?

Phyllis: I have no clue.

Jack: Let’s talk about tucker mccall.

Phyllis: I don’t want to talk about tucker mccall.

Jack: Don’t bother. I know he convinced you to hack into jabot’s financial system, didn’t he?

Phyllis: What?

Jack: At least have the decency to admit the truth.

Phyllis: I have no idea what you’re talking about, jack.

Jack: Moving money around to make billy look bad. That ring any bells?

Phyllis: Where are you getting this information?

Jack: I want to know why though. Why you did it? Why you decided to come after us? Is tucker offering you money? To pay your legal bills? To– to cover insurance expenses? I know you did this, phyllis. I have no doubt. I can see it in your eyes. God, so much for turning your life around.

Billy: Thanks.

Jack: Billy, I gotta say this. Promise me you won’t get sucked in for real when they offer you a position of power. I know how tempting it can be.

Billy: Like I said, it’s gonna be so easy to be pissed off at you, jack. If you don’t trust me, why are we having this conversation?

Tucker: I see right through you.

Billy: Is that so?

Tucker: Yeah. You were intrigued by the idea of running jabot all on your own. Now, you just can’t get it out of your head. And now you’re scared. Scared maybe you missed your chance. And you think, geez, with jack so punch drunk in love, I would be much better suited to run jabot. Right? And you’d have total control, total autonomy.

Billy: Whatever it takes to make things balanced again, I will do.

Tucker: Yeah, that’s very noble of you. Well, if that’s the case, you’ll have to figure out on your own how to dethrone diane.

Billy: Diane, we both know that you’re not gonna settle for the position that you’re in right now. You’re gonna want more, more input, more power. And my brother is gonna give you whatever you want. The way I see it, there’s only one person that’s gonna do whatever they can to protect my family’s company. And you’re looking at him. You still don’t trust me, do you?

Jack: Oh, come on, billy.

Billy: No, that’s what this is about, jack. It’s always been about that. You don’t think I can handle myself without your guidance.

Jack: And you can’t be criticized because you take everything I say so personal.

Billy: Because it’s always personal, jack. And very seldom complimentary. I don’t think you’ll ever see me as a true partner.

Jack: 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.

Diane: May I?

Billy: Please.

Diane: So, did you and jack come up with a plan to deal with tucker?

Billy: We’re working on it.

Diane: Care to share any details?

Billy: You can talk to jack about that. I’m sure he’ll fill you in.

Diane: You still can’t trust me, can you? Even though you say you do.

Billy: I’ve given you every benefit of the doubt, diane. I don’t know what else you want me to do.

Diane: Billy, what tucker accused you of doing…

Billy: Which accusation are you talking about?

Diane: That if his coup was successful, you were tempted by his offer to take over jabot.

Billy: That was the plan, remember? To get tucker to believe that I was sick and tired of being an afterthought in my family and then I would flip sides. On top of that, I admitted to you and jack that the impulse to run jabot was there for a split second.

Diane: So, how close did you come?

Audra: Can I ask you a question?

Tucker: Always. No guarantee of an answer, but.

Audra: Why is this so important to you?

Tucker: Do you really need me to spell it out for you?

Audra: Yeah, I guess I do.

Tucker: The abbotts convinced ashley to pull the plug on our future. I sold everything I had just to be with her. So as far as I’m concerned, mccall is something they cost me. So now, I think it’s fitting that I take everything that’s near and dear to them.

Audra: So, it’s purely vindictive.

Tucker: If you like.

Audra: Do you even want jabot or is it just a trophy? The proverbial head on the stake?

Tucker: I lost something valuable to me. Something precious. And now, it’s their turn.

Audra: Do you want to know what I think?

Tucker: Maybe.

Audra: You’re not gonna like it.

Tucker: Ah, the suspense is killing me.

Audra: I think all this retribution against the abbotts is coming from the wrong place. You know, a place of pain and denial.

Tucker: What are you? My psychoanalyst now?

Audra: Just ask yourself this one question. You know, if ashley were to come back tomorrow and she said, “you know, forgive me, tucker.” You know, “I was wrong. I did a terrible thing to you. Our plans are back on. I love you.” What would you do? I have no doubt you’d abandon this attack and, you know, fly off with her without a second thought. I brought in ensure max protein

Jack: So, how long did it take? A day? An hour? How long did it take for you to throw away all of the good intentions you spoke so much about and hitch your wagon to tucker mccall?

Phyllis: I don’t have to listen to this.

Jack: No, you have to listen to this and you’re gonna give me some answers.

Phyllis: No, I’m not. I don’t have to listen to a damn thing you have to say to me. You have no idea what I’m doing. No clue. And you have no idea what it’s like walking around this town with the condescending looks. I’m tired of it. I’m tired of being genoa city’s punching bag. So you and everybody else here can go straight to hell.

Daniel: Thank you. What do you think that was all about?

Danny: Jack?

Daniel: Mm. He seemed pretty pissed.

Danny: Yeah. It’s probably either a fresh wound or an old one. You know, with your mother, it’s sometimes hard to keep track of all the bridges she’s burned.

Daniel: No kidding.

Danny: Hey, how are you doing, daniel?

Daniel: I’m good.

Danny: Just good?

Daniel: No. No, actually, you know, I’m– I’m better than good. Things are going great with work. Lily and I, our relationship is in a good place and just hanging out enjoying each other’s company. Having fun. Nothing too serious.

Danny: Glad to hear it.

Daniel: Mm-hmm. To be honest with you, the only conflict in my life right now is with mom. And I just, I really want to believe her this time.

Danny: I want to believe her too. But hey, we both know phyllis. It’s a real leap of blind faith.

Billy: I realized what was happening and I stopped myself. Why are you asking me that?

Diane: I am asking because I know that you shared ashley’s concerns about me. That I was getting too much power at jabot. And that jack is so in love with me, he’d give me anything I want.

Billy: Yeah, I was worried about that in the beginning.

Diane: And now?

Billy: Now, I’m fine with the way things are.

Diane: That’s not exactly a ringing endorsement.

Billy: Not sure what else you want me to say, diane?

Diane: How about you admit that you still see yourself as the most rational of all of us? And that you’re deserving of taking over the top spot.

Billy: I’m not looking to take over my brother’s job right now. Just like I’m hoping you’re not looking to take over mine. But to be very frank, we need to get past this because there are far worse threats that we need to deal with.

Tucker: I hate to blow holes in your theory, but you couldn’t be more wrong.

Audra: So even if ashley gave you a sign, you’d still go after jabot?

Tucker: Absolutely. ‘Cause I can no longer trust or believe ashley anymore. And you– you just can’t undo that kind of betrayal. She showed me who she really is in paris. And so, now I’m left to believe that everything that came before was just a game. A ploy to pull me back in. She’s probably had a plan from the beginning. You know, bait and switch. Target and destroy.

Audra: I doubt that very much.

Tucker: No, all the– the slow, methodical, pushes and pulls, the teasing. Will she, won’t she? Before her pice de rĂ©sistance of convincing me she’d fallen back in love with me. And then, when my defenses were down, a knife to my heart.

Audra: But why?

Tucker: God knows. Probably some long ago resentment she can’t let go of. But it doesn’t matter now. It’s done.

Audra: I think you’re wrong.

Tucker: Okay. Where is this sudden allegiance to ashley coming from? It’s not exactly like you’ve been her cheerleader in the past.

Audra: I know what someone looks like when they’re in love. Just truly, deeply in love. You know, and ashley had that for you, whether you want to believe it or not. Hey, you know, I think she did fall back in love with you. She just found it harder to break away from her family than she thought.

Tucker: I think you’ve missed your calling. Sadly, therapists don’t make the kind of money you’d be interested in though.

Audra: Yeah. Do your witty, bitterness thing, but I know what I saw.

Tucker: Not from personal experience, I assume. No, that’d be a sucker’s bet for you.

Audra: No, I’ve never been in love in that way. I thought I was, but no…

Tucker: Well, take it from me, it’s highly overrated.

Audra: Well, at least you’ve been there. And I think you still are.

Tucker: In love with ashley?

Audra: Mm-hmm. Yes. And I also believe that if you give yourself permission, you know, to go back to that place, you’d give her another chance and call off this attack.

Tucker: Let me be perfectly clear about something, audra. There is nothing that will stop me from dismantling the abbotts and taking everything they hold dear. Nothing. Doesn’t your family deserve the best?

Daniel: So, uh, how long are you planning on being in town for?

Danny: Well, I got a couple of months off of the tour and thought I’d come and check up on everybody. And, oh, by the way, I’ve got some new music I’m working on for your video game. I think you’re gonna really like it.

Daniel: I’m sure I will. Any other reason why you came back?

Danny: Well, I was– I was hoping to see christine. You know, we reached a pretty good place last time I was here and I wanted to follow up on it. But she’s not answering any of my texts.

Daniel: Christine’s in lisbon with paul.

Danny: Oh.

Daniel: Yeah. Apparently, they’re trying to work things out.

Danny: Really?

Daniel: Look, I– I don’t know any of the details. I only know what heather told me, but apparently, paul called christine, asked her to come out to portugal. That’s all I know.

Phyllis: What? Do you think I like this? Do you think I like what I put my daughter through? And the hell she’s going through right now all because of what diane and I did. And yes, diane played a part in this.

Jack: That still doesn’t explain what you’re cooking up with tucker mccall.

Phyllis: I’m not doing anything. You have to believe that. Trust me, I’m not trying to sabotage you or billy. I hate tucker. I despise him. What do I have to say to get you to believe me?

Jack: How about this? If you won’t tell me the truth, you help me find out what tucker is up to. What his bottom line is. You hack into his system. Then maybe, I’ll believe you’re sincere about your desire to make amends.

[ Knocking on door ]

Tucker: Hey.

Billy: I know what you’re up to and I’m warning you right now. You better back off.

Tucker: What are you? Drunk?

Billy: You tried to set me up. Make it look like I’m embezzling money from my family company. Except you don’t have a lot of finesse anymore, tucker. I think you might be losing it a little bit.

Tucker: Wow, this is fantastic.

Billy: Yeah, stick with me, okay? Because we’re gonna go down memory lane a little bit. Back to a time when you and audra were running the mccall record label. Remember that? There was an artist of yours that had a thing for underage girls?

Tucker: Hm.

Billy: Yeah, you must have thought that you buried all the evidence, huh? All those emails back and forth between you and audra. Talking about how you were gonna cover it all up to save your ass. Guess who’s got those emails now, tucker? I do. And I’m gonna use them to crush you. Unless you back off.

Announcer: Next week on the young and the restless.

Claire: I’m really grateful to be considered for your assistant role at newman media.

Nikki: So, tell us. Who is claire grace?

Jack: Hopefully, your little meeting with tucker will dissuade him from coming after us and we won’t need phyllis at all.

Billy: But if not?

Jack: If not, phyllis may be just the weapon we need.

Tucker: It’s been a long time since you and I were friends, but now you’ve made me your enemy.

Jill: There is something else going on underneath all this and I want to know what the hell it is.

THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

 trina: Thank you. Here you go. Sir. Appreciate it. Enjoy. Thank you. Oh, my god. That was amazing! The sets, the costumes, the music. I felt like I was actually at the moulin rouge! Didn’t you love it?! I did, though I did have a little bit of difficulty paying attention because I had a very pretty girl sitting next to me who I kept stealing glances at. Well, I’m definitely not as exciting as the can-can. Oh, I would disagree. To me, you are. I’m not sure toulouse-lautrec would agree. Well, it made me happy to see you so happy. Couldn’t take my eyes off you. Well, how can I be anything but happy? I’m in an incredible city with the most incredible guy. Who’s incredibly hungry. What do you think?

[ Laughs ] I’m starving. Hello, handsome. Ah. The door? I didn’t mean to wake you. No apologies necessary. I love waking up to you.

[ Monitor beeping ]

[ Grunting ]

[ Grunting ] Bad dream? Unfortunately, it’s not a dream. It’s, uh — it’s my reality. -Mom? -Hey. What are you doing here at this hour? I need your help. I saw willow at G.H. She’s — she’s with drew. Yeah, she insisted on checking on him, so I stayed with the kids. H-how is drew doing? He made it through surgery. He’s lucky to be alive. They almost beat him to death. He shouldn’t even be in pentonville. I have no idea what the hell that judge was thinking. I do. Judge kim used drew to advance his career, and I need you to help me prove it. Nurse baldwin, where have you been all night? The first time I’m seeing you. It’s been so busy. I’ve been assisting in surgery for the past three hours. What about you? Why are you here so late? Well, I couldn’t leave without saying hi to you.

[ Rain falling ] You’re all wet, madam! Nothing gets past you, giles. Why is it only raining on this godforsaken island?! You know, not a single drop anywhere else! Spoon island is a microclimate. Oh. Well, thank you for the science lesson. Well, I’m not meant to be dry today, obviously, so in keeping with the wet theme, I’m gonna go and take a long, hot bath. No, you won’t, madam. Just stop it with the “madam,” giles, and tell me, why can’t I take a bath? I’m sorry, but the hot water heater isn’t working due to intermittent power outages on the island from the storm. Oh. Right. The microclimate, huh? Precisely. Well, please tell me that the vodka and olive situation hasn’t been affected by the storm. Not to my knowledge. Hot dog! Well, fix me a martini, will you? And I’m gonna get out of these wet clothes. How would you like your martini? Dry, giles. Very dry. Banker muller: Welcome, ms. Spencer. Oh, actually, it’s collins now. Oh, I’d love for you to meet my husband, dr. Kevin collins. Ah. Hans muller. Pleased to meet you. Mr. Muller. Have a seat. Thank you. I’ve known your lovely wife for years. Oh, yes. My gosh. How long have we been doing business? Wait. Don’t answer that. I don’t think I want to know that number. But he’s been a friend of the family for a long time. So what can I do for you, mrs. Collins? You can help me find my son.


I’m flattered. But I’m not buying it. What? There’s gotta be another reason you’re still here. Your shift ended hours ago. Oh, I am insulted.

[ Chuckles ] Okay, well, maybe I am waiting around for some lab results, but the thought of seeing you was an added incentive for sticking around. Oh, well, you won’t be seeing me around here at night anymore ’cause the kids are done with camp, school’s about to start, and I have to switch back to days. I like seeing you anytime I can, but I got to admit, these — these nights have been kind of special. I wouldn’t necessarily call a 12-hour shift “special.” I sort of meant spending time with you has been nice. Our talks on the roof. When you stole my spot? O-okay. I thought we pretty much cleared this up. That bench was always my spot. I’m pretty sure

you are the interloper. Interloper? I’ve never been described as an interloper. Well, if the bench fits. Hey, whoever gets there first, okay? That sounds like a challenge.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Pager beeps ] Ugh. Patient calls. Good night, dr. Finn. Good night, nurse baldwin. So how’d it go with charlotte? I’m sure she was excited, you know, spending the night at your place. Yeah, she was. She was. It’s just she’s going through a lot right now. It’s difficult for her. She’S…acting out. S-she’s, what, 14? It’s hard for me to believe this, but she’s 15. Well, acting out comes with the territory at that age. Yeah. You got to be, you know — have patience with her. I am. I am. It’s just… yeah? You know, when valentin and I were together, I was her stepmother for a while. And even though we’re not together now, I still think of charlotte as my family. Family is very important. It’s the most important thing. Yeah. Hey… since we’re on the subject of family… …we need to talk about yours. Not that I don’t appreciate the company, but what are you doing here, willow? Michael and I heard about the attack, and we were so worried about you. Hm. I had to come see you. So michael stayed home with the kids. Well, that is very sweet. But you didn’t have to come. It’s the least I can do.

[ Chuckles ] You literally saved my life. If you hadn’t rescued liesl, I wouldn’t have gotten the bone-marrow transplant, and I might not be here. A visit from me certainly can’t compare, but I wanted you to know that I’m thinking about you. Thank you. Is there anything you want or need to talk about? The attack? No. No. Well, there is — there is one thing I need to know, and it’s — it’s pretty important. Anything. I need to know how wiley’s tee-ball team is doing.

[ Chuckles ] My son has been missing for months now, and I’m afraid that something’s happened. He hasn’t contacted you at all? No. No. And he left behind two sons. One of them is just a baby. And I don’t believe that he would just abandon them. So I’m actually kind of afraid that maybe he’s being held against his will. Kevin and I have been searching for him for weeks now, but we haven’t come up with any leads. We’ve been to all the cassadine properties in russia and greece, but there’s no sign of him. I’m happy to try and help any way I can. But what makes you think nikolas is in geneva? Because his money is here. Ava: Thank you for making this fire, giles. I know it’s a bit early for it, but I was so damp. I feel better already. And, you know, I’ll feel even better once I get the martini.

[ Electricity crackles ][ Thunder crashes ]

[ Gasps ] Ohh! Oh!

[ Gasps ] I’m so sorry. Let me get you a napkin. No, no, no, no, no. It’s quite alright. I told you I wasn’t meant to be dry tonight. This came from the real-estate agency. Oh, thank you. Well, thank you so much. I’m off this evening, but there’s plenty of food in the kitchen. Well, I’ll be having a liquid dinner. Thanks so much. And get home safely.

[ Thunder rumbles ] I cannot wait to move off this island. What a beautiful night. Thank you, spencer. There’s no reason to thank me. All I did was place a few phone calls, one to the hotel, another to the restaurant, and then to the ticket concierge. It’s not a big deal. Well, though everything has been wonderful, I’m not talking about the reservations. I know how hard it is for you to get away, and you have to deal with esme and be there for ace. And I just want to let you know how grateful I am that you made time for us. I love us. Me too. And… I love you, spencer cassadine. So very much.


God. I can’t believe this is all my fault. This is not on you, mom. Oh, michael, it is, too! I’m the one who insisted on investing in aurora. I’m the one who took my chance and I put all my money into that stock. That’s what led to the insider-trading charges. You had no idea that was gonna happen. Yes, someone is to blame, but it’s not you. Whoever called the sec, they’re to blame. Do you still think it was ned? There’s no way to know. Now that he thinks he’s — he’s eddie maine, we may never know, but I’m — I’m working on it. What do you mean, you’re working on it? I may have a lead on the whistleblower, okay, but — really? Yes, but that’s not gonna get drew out of prison any sooner. I’ll fill you in later, but right now we need to focus on getting him home. Okay. Okay. I reached out to diane. And she thinks that our best strategy is to put pressure on the judge to either reduce or commute drew’s sentence. Okay, well, how do we do that? I have some information on the judge, and I’m gonna use it. And these days, all the kids get a trophy. And wiley didn’t understand it at first, since, you know, they lost every game. He said, “mom, I thought only winners get trophies.” So I told him everyone is a winner at tee-ball. Ah. Well… has he maybe tried soccer? Oh, no. Young mr. Corinthos wouldn’t even consider it. I’m afraid wiley takes after his dad. He is so stubborn. He will not give up no matter how many times he strikes out. Aww.

[ Laughs ] Nina came last week, and she could not believe how committed our slugger is. Wow. Well, that must mean that you and nina are getting along, huh? It’s going better than I ever imagined. Nina’s been respecting boundaries. She always calls to make sure it’s okay to come over. She’s great with the kids. And wiley loves his grandmother. Lights up when he sees her. I’m so happy that things are going better. That’s great. And how’s michael doing with all this? I mean, has his opinion of nina changed? Like I said… michael’s stubborn. Something happen between you and michael? No. No. It’s not michael. It’S…gladys. What did she do now? Well, sonny, she’s in serious debt. She owes a lot of money to selina wu. Well, that’s somebody you don’t want to mess with. How’d you find out? She came to me. She came to my office. She asked me for money. She wanted me to bail her out because she was too afraid to approach you. Let me guess how she got into this hole. Gambling. She lost a lot of money. Apparently she’s been playing for months. Damn it! The hell is wrong with gladys?! Didn’t she see what gambling did to mike? It pretty much destroyed his life! What was she thinking?! Well, that’s the point, sonny. She wasn’t thinking. And I hate to tell you this, but it gets worse. Before she came to me, she found another way to get the money. How? Gladys was stealing money from sasha. Here’s to the end of the wyndemere era. Good riddance to this place and everything that happened here. Is this how it ends between us, ava? You turned my own son against me? You saw fit to weaponize spencer! I can’t take credit for that. You did it all by yourself. When avery is gone, I guarantee you will feel an emptiness in your soul like I will for the rest of your life.

[ Grunts ] Unh! We have a saying in the U.S. “Follow the money.” That’s what led us here. Is there anything you can tell us? Nikolas indeed has a substantial amount of money with us, but it’s separate from the cassadines’ estate. As you know, the assets are entailed, so they belong to the estate and can only be used by the designated heir. Nikolas has several separate accounts. A large amount was sent to him by his uncle victor. My condolences on his death. Oh, that won’t be — are there… has there been any recent activity in nikolas’ accounts? Yes, as a matter of fact, there’s been quite a bit. There have been several withdrawals at this bank. Well, have you seen him, then? No, but let me print out all the records for you. I’ll be back in a second. Thank you. Thank you very much. This could mean that nikolas is alive. Oh, kevin. I hope so. I do not believe you. What? That I’m in love with you? You better believe it. No, no, no. It took you so long to say it. I was just professing my love to you back in the hotel room, and then you didn’t say anything back, so I just assumed that — that I didn’t feel the same way. Well, I didn’t know. Why didn’t you say anything back then? Well, I learned a thing or two from aunt stella. She said good things come to those who wait. Okay, well, I would have waited an eternity to hear you say those words. And I’m so glad that you finally did. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I’m not exactly the most patient person in the world, trina. Oh, no. You?!

[ Laughs ] What are you thinking about, spencer? How I am the luckiest guy in the world. I’ve loved you for so very long, trina. Since the day that I met you. That was a long time ago, wasn’t it? We’ve certainly been through a lot since then.

Just the way you say my name trina!

[ Gasps ] Thank you for catching me, mr. Cassadine. Well, I’ll always be there to catch you, ms. Robinson.

You make me catch my breath

I knew the night we met

I was never leaving trina: They’re beautiful. Spencer: Every time I look at those figurines, I think about how much I missed you last christmas. Just like these two doves, we are a matched pair. We belong together. Do I make your life better or just harder? Seems like you’re there for me when it’s important. No, it seems like I’m always the one who is getting you into dangerous situations. That’s okay. I wouldn’t change it. Spencer!

Ohh, I need yes! Yes! Yes!

Here and now, kiss me now

baby, you’re my everything trust that I’m not going anywhere.

Hold me close

all I know, here’s where I want to be the best is yet to come.


So you’re telling me that gladys is stealing from her daughter-in-law. Yeah, gladys has been siphoning money from sasha’s bank account for months until she drained it. And she was desperate because she still owed selina wu a lot of money. And then when sasha came to gladys and said that she wanted to end the conservatorship, then she panicked. Gladys doesn’t want anyone to know what she’s been doing. Sasha came to me months ago and said she felt stronger and she didn’t need a guardian. Gladys told me that… she was against ending the guardianship. Are you trying to tell me that she… tried to make sure this didn’t happen? Sonny, gladys did a lot more than just that. I get where michael’s coming from. I really do. We all know how carly feels about nina, but, man, I just keep getting reminded. Not only is life short, it is so fragile. We shouldn’t just waste our time arguing with people and holding grudges.

[ Inhales sharply ] It just takes too much energy. I know. After losing my mother, I realized how important family is. I mean, harmony was never really my family, but the quartermaines are. Mm. I feel so blessed to be a part of them. They are so generous and loving and — and crazy. And stubborn. And combative. And —

[ Laughs ] I know, I know. But I wouldn’t trade them for anything. Neither would I.

[ Faucet squeaks ]

[ Thunder crashes ]

[ Screams ] Okay. Here are the current records for mr. Cassadine’s accounts. Thank you. Thank you so much. Oh. Wow! Ha. There are quite a few withdrawals, aren’t there? And these dates line up. They started just a few months ago. Yeah, right after nikolas went missing. And my colleagues tell me the withdrawals were made in person by mr. Cassadine. Uh, as you can see, there’s a recent transfer for a substantial amount. Yeah.

[ Chuckles ] I will leave you with these records. I have to attend to another matter. Thank you. I — you’ve been so helpful. I can’t thank you enough. Always a pleasure, laura. And nice meeting you, dr. Collins. We appreciate you looking into this. Thank you. Of course. He’s alive. My son is alive. Oh, thank god! And this might lead us to him. Ohh. Would you like to see our dessert menu? No, thank you. We have to get going. I’ll take the check. Thank you.


What are we thinking?

[ Laughs ] I’m not thinking. I’m tired of thinking. I don’t want to think anymore. Me neither. Gladys insisted that sasha needed to leave ferncliff now. I mean, she needed to get away from this so-called doctor that was taking care of her, and the only way to do that was to pay this guy off. Son of a bitch! Yeah, well, a lot of stuff happened, but the bottom line is, cody bell broke sasha out of ferncliff. Dante’s friend? Yeah. I mean, somehow he got into ferncliff and he took her with him. Gladys said that cody kidnapped her, but I don’t buy that. I am sorry that gladys put you in this position. No, I-I’m sorry that I didn’t tell you earlier. I was just trying to fix it myself. Anyway, you do not need to apologize. Gladys is family. I’ve put up with this way too long. That’s on me. Gladys will be dealt with. Thanks for coming to see me.

[ Monitor beeping ] So, diane said this judge is hoping to get a seat on the circuit court, and it’s really important because it’s a stepping stone to the supreme court. What does that have to do with drew’s sentence? He was hoping to look good. I mean, he may have given drew a harsher sentence because he wanted to look good to the justice department. I don’t know, michael. I don’t know. I know it’s all speculation and it’s gonna be really tough to prove actual misconduct. What if we don’t have to prove it? What if the appearance of misconduct is enough? What do you mean? Well, let’s say that we get this story out in the press. Maybe drew’s case gains some traction. Yes! We could get alexis to run a piece in the invader, and that would put pressure on the judge! We have to tread lightly, though, because alexis is a former attorney and she’s scrupulous. Alexis wouldn’t run a hit piece on judge kim just because you ask her to. She wouldn’t do it for me. But there’s someone else she’d do it for. What the hell are you doing here? Did giles let you in? What? The guy in the penguin suit? Oh, he’s long gone. What do you want, mason? Well, it depends. What are you offering? Nothing. I said my piece yesterday, so get out of here! I said get out of here, or I’ll call the cops! Go for it. We’ll be long gone before they even get here. We? Yeah. Spencer…

it’s your love

it’s your love

I’m caught up in the midst of it

feel my touch, such a rush

right here in the thick of it

now I see you’re all I need

here and now, kiss me now

baby, you’re my everything

hold me close, all I know

here’s where I want to be

just the way you say my name

it pulls me closer in

you make me catch my breath

I knew the night we met

I was never leaving

and now I see you’re all I need

here and now

kiss me

now


Ahh. Alexis just doesn’t write a story at anyone’s request, so who are we talking about here? I’ll let you know when it works. But you — you said you had a lead on who tipped off the sec. Yeah. You know how I was convinced that it had to be ned. But then before eddie surfaced, ned said that he had nothing to do with it. Yeah, and olivia insists that ned is innocent. And until ned knows who he is, we’re not gonna get any information there. I know. I know. So I’ve taken other steps to get to the bottom of this. I was able to cultivate a contact at the sec. We are going to find out who turned you and drew in. That’s a promise. You know, honey, we can’t fix anything tonight, so why don’t we just — why don’t we go to bed? Okay? Come on. Yeah. What’s all that? Oh, this is just a few things that olivia said she was gonna send me for wedding planning. I thought it was a few things and not “war and peace.” I mean, meghan and harry had less paperwork. It’s gonna take me forever to get through all this stuff. You know, I just — I’m just not in the right head space for any of this. You got a lot on your plate. I do. I do. I’m up to my neck in the december issue of crimson. And get this — we were supposed to have a photo shoot. No, we are gonna have a photo shoot tomorrow, but my model, she bailed on me last-minute, so we’re in a scramble to try to find somebody el– you know what? It doesn’t even matter. The most important thing is us. The only thing that matters is planning our wedding. No. Actually, the only thing that matters… is getting married. How can — what are you doing here? I came looking for you. Why? I came to warn you. Warn me? About what?!

[ Mouthing words ]

[ Sighs ]

[ Chuckles ] I have no words for you.

[ Laughing ] Wow.

[ Sighs ] Yeah. Wow. Ohh… you see anything? I’m looking for a pattern, some clue as to where nikolas might be now. But, you know, it’s this one very large withdrawal. Do you think maybe he opened another account so that he could maybe hide what he’s doing or where he is? Maybe. But we’re not gonna figure out anything right now. Let’s take these back to the hotel for champagne. For champagne? Yes, champagne. This is information worth celebrating. Yes, it is, isn’t it? Oh, yes! My son’s alive, and that is worth celebrating. Oh, my goodness. And our search was not in vain. I’m not going anywhere with you. I wouldn’t do that if I were you. You stay away from me. You ratted us out, ava. Wasn’t smart.


Amy, have you checked on mr. Lamming in 1002? I have, and he’s fine. Good. You look tired. You want me to get you one? Nothing like a little caffeine to help get you through the night shifts. Ooh. No, no, no. I will never sleep tonight if I have one of those. Dr. Finn! Here are the labs you’ve been waiting…for. Thank you. Uh, wait a minute. Why do you both have wet hair? Hey. You know when I’m happiest? When? When I’m with you. Really? Really. I mean it. Hello. I assume you’re here for more money. Yes. I need to make another withdrawal. You just missed your mother. Oh. Did I? Yeah. She was here with her husband. They’re looking for you. See, nikolas, your mother is a very gracious woman. She loves you. And your disappearance… gave her a large amount of pain. Be a good son… and do the right thing. I plan to.

[ Thunder crashes ] Carly: Why aren’t you sleeping? You should be resting. I got some sleep. And then willow came to visit. And I’m sure that I’m going to — I’m gonna nod off again. So I’m good. You — you should go home. You should be with the girls. Josslyn’s with them. They’re fine. I’m not gonna stay long. I just needed to be with you. Even if it’s just to watch you sleep. I love you. I’m so sorry this happened to you. Don’t worry. Everything is gonna be okay. You’re damn right it’s gonna be okay… because I’m gonna make sure of it. Is drew okay? Yeah, I-I think so. It looks like drew will recover. The surgery went well. We had a good visit. I’m really glad I saw him. Willow, what’s wrong? It — it’s — it’s nothing. Willow, if you’re not feeling well, you have to tell me. No, no, it’s — it’s not that. After I left drew’s room, I sat in the lounge for a bit and nodded off. Willow, you’re pushing yourself too hard. You should have waited before going back to work. Okay. I guess I was a bit more tired than I realized. But that’s — that’s not what’s bothering me. I… had the strangest dream about my mother. What, nina? No. Harmony. But it was only a dream. I don’t care about the dress and the flowers and the — the cake. It doesn’t matter! Well, it seems like it matters to you ’cause you’re doing a lot of planning. Yeah. Right. Yeah, I mean, I have, but, you know, it’s all so insignificant right now with everything that has happened this last few months, with sasha being committed and curtis getting shot. I mean, planning a big wedding, I feel really guilty about that because a lot of people that we love are suffering. Yes. I got an idea. You do? What? Why don’t we elope? I’m serious. Listen. All we care about is to say our vows and become husband and wife. You even said that you don’t want to deal with this right now. I know, but — but — sonny, elope? No, it’s — the planning’s gonna be out of control. Olivia’s gonna keep coming to you with, you know, more options. Do we really care what icing is on the cake?

[ Chuckles ] I don’t know. It’S… we will fly to the island tomorrow. We will get married. What do you say? I say yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes!

THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

Yes, your job is to eradicate every vestige of Maggie Horton’s hideous bourgeois taste. Oh, yeah, come after lunch, and we’ll start from scratch. And, oh. And bring a dumpster. Everything goes. Everything.

Also loud.

I’m coming. I’m coming.

Good you’re here. I gave it the office. Dad told me the score. Your dad told you the score. It’s my ex dad. Bad no more.

Okay. The sun is out, the leaves are turning wondrous colors, and the birds are singing. Meaning… Meaning it’s time to turn this day into the bleakest… Darkest and most hopeless day that my husband and best friend have ever experienced. Oh, great minds. Those swine have betrayed me in the most unimaginable way.

Now we just have to find a punishment. Something that will fit their crimes.

Gabby! Stefan! Open the door, you are in mortal danger! Please, listen to me, I’m the only thing standing between you and certain death!

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

No one’s hurt, right? You two are gonna be just fine. It’s just a little flesh wound. Do you know how to do CPR? Leo, it’s no use. You’re beating a dead horse. You actually went through with it? You killed them? It would appear so. Oh my god, what the matter with you? Oh, but darling. Everything I did, I did it for us.

For us.

Oh, thank God. A dream. Just a horrible, ghastly dream.

Well, why the closed door, Kristen? There are no secrets in this house, are there? Oh, no. It was my idea, my darling. To close the doors, that is. Because I, I didn’t want you to hear what I was asking, Kristen. Relationship advice.

No, no, um, no, uh. Not that. I was, um, asking her on what to surprise you with. Surprise me? What kind of a surprise? A very fun surprise, of course. Because I think you so deserve it. Doesn’t he deserve it? I think he deserves it. Because…

Because you’re… The man.

That I almost immediately overnight. Well, uh, let’s not forget who fell in love with you nearly as quickly. Oh, trust me. Gwen never lets herself forget that for one single day. Um,

Alex, come on, you can’t think like that. I can’t think like what? I can’t tell it like it is? That the guy that I thought was my dad apparently had nothing to do with my being brought into the world? And that actually explains a lot, and why he’s such a low respected, you know, dignified guy, and I’m not. Oh, come on, that’s not And why you?

The guy who I thought was my brother is loved by one and all. And I’m not. Okay, first of all, that is so not true. Can you leave now, please? No! What? No! I’m not gonna leave until I figure out why you’re feeling so damn sorry for yourself, alright? Nothing has changed. I am still your brother. Dad is still your dad.

Right. It’s just that my mother had an affair with Victor and obviously they were too stupid to use a birth control, so they had a baby, a. k. a. me. And even though Uncle Victor… Didn’t think that I deserved to know that my father wasn’t my father. You say that doesn’t change anything, right? That doesn’t matter?

I’m not, I’m not saying that it doesn’t matter. What I’m saying is my relationship with you, Dad’s relationship with you, the connection we have with each other, the love. We have for each other. Why does any of that have to change? Why does it have to change? I’ll tell you why it has to change. Sonny, a little thing called reality.

Some stone cold facts, and here they are. You ready? Listen. I’m listening. My dad is not my dad. And you and I are not brothers. End of story.

Did you get my message last night? I told you I needed to see you and it was very important. I got your message. I ignored it. And you are trespassing. Not when I have this. It seems that Victor did have a will after all. And this is

it. So what is it like? I mean, is it nicely decorated? Is there a view? I’m so curious. Hmm. Well, Sloan’s apartment is, it’s lovely. I mean, it’s bright, it’s spacious. The important thing is that Eric seems to be happy. Seems to be? Well, he did say that he and Sloan are very compatible. Wow. You know, I wish them both the very best.

Speaking of moves, have you heard the latest about Vivian? Well, I heard that she had resurfaced. That she had ensconced herself in a mansion and, uh, She was, uh, parading as the victor’s widow. Mm hmm. Well, that is the gist of it. But I heard from Bonnie that all of that is about to end. Really? Mm hmm. Really.

I’m very pleased to report that Vivian Alamein is going to be kicked out on her ass. Huh? You can wave paper in front of my face all you want, Maggie, but the… Fact is, Victor told his lawyer… To destroy the will. Yes. Victor ordered the will that was on file with his estate lawyer to be destroyed and then he wrote this one, Dian.

You really should put that phone down ’cause you need to focus.

This is preposterously. Convenient in point. Unbelievable. Well, in your case, it’s decidedly inconvenient.

My new lawyer discovered that due to a clerical error, my divorce from Vivian Allemagne was never properly executed. This means my beloved Maggie is not legally my wife. It is a mistake I intend to rectify the moment I return to Salem. And then, trust me, heads are gonna roll. He loves saying that. It’s my intention to finalize my divorce and make Maggie my wife as soon as possible.

And in the meantime, I want to ensure that she is provided for in the event of my death. To that end, I hereby leave. 50 percent of my entire estate to Margaret Simmons Horton. Well, I won’t go on because the rest doesn’t involve you. Oh, the hell it doesn’t. Huh, there’s still 50 percent left to go after. Oh, yes.

How about that other 50? Hmm. You know, I really wish you wouldn’t do this, Alex. Do what? Face reality? The reality is you’re wallowing in this self pity when you should be counting your blessings. Alright, our dad, and yes, I’m gonna keep calling him our dad, our dad is a great guy. With a huge heart, and he loves all of his kids, and that includes, and will always include you.

And for you to stand here, and act like your whole world has been turned upside down, and to act like you’re having this self identity crisis, you know what? It’s honestly a little self indulgent and pathetic. Oh, well I’m ready for you to leave now. I am leaving, actually. I’m leaving Salem. I have a plane to catch in about an hour.

And I, I wish I didn’t have to leave Dad like this. But I have to get back. Look at me. And I wish I didn’t have to leave you.

Look, in spite of everything I just said, I know, I know, man, you’re dealing with a lot right now. Okay, and that, that, you’re just venting, and that I’m the person you feel comfortable venting with. I really don’t need to hear all the psychobabble right now. Psychobabble? Okay, how about this then? Stop wallowing.

Wallowing? I’m wallowing? I can’t wallow? Yes, you’re wallowing. You’re drinking yourself into a stupor. You’re isolating yourself from the world. I mean, what else would you call it? I would call it needing some time to think, Sonny. Some time to think alone. To think about the fact that everything I thought about myself up until this point was a lie.

Like the fact that I thought I knew who my father was. Like I thought I knew who my brother was. Listen to me. You’re not listening to me. Listen. Dad’s genetics. His DNA. That’s not what made us brothers. It is the time that we spent together. Is my mom any less of a mom to you? Because she’s not your biological mother?

Our past. None of that has changed, man. You know what, you, you remember you got a D minus in biology and now you’re using genetics to say I’m not your brother? You know what, man? Screw you!

Here’s what I don’t get. Why is Dimitri ignoring our message from last night? I think this calls for a threatening text. How out of character for you. I don’t know what’s worse. Reminding him that he’s going to be losing all his Fun Moisture money when we reveal that his marriage to Gwen is a sham. Or wondering aloud what Gwen might do to his manhood when she finds out he’s been sleeping with Leo.

Why not a little bit of both? Why not? Indeed. I think we need to tighten our thumbscrews here, okay? Once we get Dimitri’s shares, we’re gonna be top dogs at DiMera. Okay, not so fast, Gabby. Because since we last talked about this, I’ve done some thinking, and I counted all the shares. And if we get Dimitri’s, we will only have enough to be in a tie for who has the most votes.

Am I loved? You don’t need to go through the trouble of surprising me. You know I’m more than happy. Status quo. Oh, I know you are, my darling. But you see, I read somewhere that surprises are the secret to a fairy. Happy marriage. Oh, really? Well, now you’ve got me on pins and needles. Good. That’s exactly where I want to start.

Okay. Well then, I, uh, I will take my leave and let you conspire. Oh, no, no, no, no, no, Dimitri. Don’t, don’t go. We need to talk about the outstanding DiMera business. Remember? Nonsense. We can talk about that any time. Let me go get the door and let you and Gwen get back to planning my surprise.

Did you see that? You couldn’t wait to get away from me. Oh, that little weasel. Well, wait until he finds out what kind of a surprise you have in store for him. Just not the surprise that he’ll be expecting. Oh, don’t say that again. Oh! But let’s just be real. Let’s call it what it is. A punishment, as you so aptly did earlier.

And there is only one punishment that fits his crime. I’m listening. We have to kill him.

Tell me you didn’t kill Gabby and Stefan. Tell me you’ve been down. I don’t know if I didn’t kill them. Oh, thank God. Please, by all means, be a little bit louder next time so the whole household knows my plan.

After all, the shares? Right. And again, if we get Dimitri’s, that will only put us in a tie with EJ’s camp 7 to 7. Hear me out. We’ve got my shares and Jake’s, right? I would imagine Kristen, Steven, and Peter will vote with me. But then on EJ’s side, he’s got Tony, and Chad, and Lee, and Johnny, and also Kate’s shares, right?

I can’t imagine any of those people switching sides anytime soon. Yeah, but it doesn’t necessarily mean a stalemate. I mean, what about Lee? What about him? Gabby, there’s no way he’s gonna switch to our side. There’s, there’s too much history. Well, it’ll take some convincing, but it’s doable. Okay, and just how exactly do you plan on convincing Lee?

Well, it’s not gonna be that hard. I’ll seduce him. Ha, ha, ha, ha.

Not dead. Dimitri. Yes.

You are joking, aren’t you? I am only thinking of you, love. You heard about how poor Maggie Horton is out on the street because Victor died without a will? And now Vivian has everything because she is still his legal wife. So? So? Oh, God. If Dimitri buys the farm, then you get every dime coming to him from that stupid codicil.

Not quite. You see, the marriage has to be in effect for at least a year for that codicil to kick in. Ah, but it doesn’t say anything about what happens if one of you dies before the year is up. Right, okay, that’s if I want him dead, yes? But what about you? You don’t give a damn about anyone but yourself and killing him.

You’re just gonna get part of the installment that he got. Why are you so willing to go nuclear? Because I know who’s kind. And these things you have to just nip in the bud. Yeah. Well, sorry, I’m not a murder. Oh gosh. Gwen , you broke out of prison to kill your own sister. Yeah, no. Yes. No, I did not. That’s not true.

That’s not why I came here to kill my sister. I only tried to set up Sarah to make it look like she was attacking Abigail. Right, right. And that is on par with jaywalking. Okay, look, you told me that he went to go deposit a cheque in a bank account that he doesn’t think I know anything about. Yes? Why don’t I go to the bank and withdraw every bloody penny and then you and I can split that?

I mean, isn’t that enough for revenge?

You’ve become such a prude. All right, Gwen. If that’s what you can

live with. Okay. I’ll go to the bank now. You hold down the fort.

I am giving you a lot more than that.

Oh.

Sorry, Gwen. Dimitri has it coming

to him. No, Dimitri, it is just plain wrong. And it’s dangerous! And most important, conjugal visits are not my thing. I am not going to prison, okay? And I am also not giving Gabby and Stefan my shares at Damerica. Gabby is texting me again. This woman is so tiresome. She really does need to die. No, Dimitri!

Please, listen to me! You wouldn’t get away with it. Just let them have the damn shares. You will still have tons of money from marrying Gwen. And how rich do you need to be? I asked a question I never thought I’d hear you ask. There has to be another way, because if something happens to the two of them and the cops question me, I know that I will fold like a cheap lawn chair and I will lose you forever.

Hey, stop. No. You’re not gonna lose me. Then… Then say you’re not gonna do it. Say you will find another way that you’re not going to kill them, please. Please.

Lord, you are persistent. Fine. Fine. They can live the two of us. Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you. Thank

you. Just what I needed. Tough love. Actually, it is what you needed, Alex.

Are you at least talked to, Dad? You mean my cousin Justin? And I thought I was getting through to you. No, I mean your dad. The guy who raised you. No, I haven’t talked to the guy who raised me, not since after he told me about the letter. After that, I found… That bottle. And that, as they say, was that. Okay.

Well, since you’re obviously too self absorbed… To think about how this new development is affecting everyone else

that is hurting too, Alex, so I suggest you get cleaned up and you go talk to him. Has no point. There’s no, what do you, what do you mean? What do you mean? There’s no point? You, you have to talk to him. The two of you have to talk. I did talk, I did talk to him and it didn’t make sense last night. It doesn’t make sense this morning because at the end of the day, Victor knew that he was my dad.

And he never said a word. I know, and that’s… It’s messed up. Obviously. But there has to be a reason why he did what he did, and I’m, I’m sure he struggled like hell with it. Yeah, and what reason could he possibly have had, Sonny boy?

I don’t know. I don’t know, maybe he thought that his nephew Justin would be a better father than he ever could be. I don’t, I don’t, you would have to talk to Phillip about that. Okay, well then here’s the burning question, Sonny. Why did I have to find out that he was my father after he was dead? He leaves me half his fortune?

What, to try and make up for lying to me my whole life? For pretending to be my uncle? How am I supposed to feel about that? I don’t even know if I want the damn inheritance! Okay, can we not talk about that right now? Because the money aspect is not nearly as important as how everyone is feeling right now.

The important thing is that you try to come to terms with this, Alex. You try to deal with this anger. That you actually try to figure out why Uncle Vic did what he did.

And most importantly, you gotta think about Dad, ma’am. Because I guarantee you, he’s just as messed up as you are about this.

But make no mistake, okay? He does. And he always will. Love you like a son. Alright, and I do. And I always will love you like a brother.

Everything else is pretty meaningless in my book.

You agree with me, don’t you?

It’s not even if I do agree with you. I can’t just let go the fact that I was deceived all my life. I can’t just suddenly learn that Victor Kiriakis is my father. And not be changed in some very fundamental ways. Do you understand that, Sonny? I have to rethink everything. Everything.

Alex. No, not him. Angelica’s letter was crystal clear. So was Victor’s will. Angelica. And Victor. Oh, I was just telling Alex that he had his mother’s killer instinct. Obviously, he has a double dose. Let’s stay on topic, shall we, Vivian? The new will is crystal clear. I get half of Victor’s estate, Alex gets the other half, and there is no third half.

Halves? Halves? There are no halves. It’s all in line.

So, Victor had written a new will. Mm hmm. Yeah, he did, to the tremendous relief of Maggie and the rest of the family. I can only imagine. So that means that Vivian has no claim on the mansion, or anything else for that matter. Yep. Just as I said, she is out on her ass. Could you imagine how satisfying it’s going to be to picture her, that malevolent creature, finally getting what she deserves?

Well, that was very dramatic, but completely useless. Not unlike you. Get out of my house. Oh, Vivian. Did you really think that I was going to let you in the same room as the original Will? That I would come back here before I had it probated. Ah, you know, you have always underestimated me. I am not leaving.

Possession is nine tenths of the law. And you’re always so predictable. No, no, I’m mercurial. You’re predictable. And I’ve come prepared.

How? Prepared how? Deputy Pratt, we’re ready for you now. Deputy? What? What the? That is your eviction notice. Let’s go, Ms. Elliman. It’s Mrs. Kiriakis. Now, if she gives you any trouble, just shoot her. Kristen, I won’t be long.

Oh,

Mattie. What brings you here and what are you two plotting now? Oh, uh, nothing. I, come here, I came to see you. I missed you and I was hoping we could maybe grab some breakfast before work. Oh, golly. Sorry, I wish I could. I’ve just got lots of errands to run in town. Secret errands. Soon then? Yes, absolutely.

And why are you hogging matters? All of a sudden, it seems like ages when you went to go answer the door when you left me and Kristen. Uh, well, um, well, you know, all that, that, that talk inside about surprising me, I was just discussing with Leo what I can do to you, for you, in return. Oh! Another surprise for me?

Well, fair warning, it’s really not easy to pull one over on me.

Right. Well, good luck, you two. I shan’t be long. Just in case you were wondering, no, I did not enjoy that kiss. That’s okay. I’m sure she more than made up for your lack of

enthusiasm. Relax, okay? Leo, everything is going to work out. Okay. Okay, I will relax. Just promise me that the two of them will still be alive when you’re done, not that they deserve that. Habiento mon amor. Habiento mon

amor?

Why is he suddenly speaking French? Ugh, and why do I suddenly feel like my entire life is about to go up in smoke?

Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no! You are not going to seduce Lee! No way, no how! Why not? He obviously still has a thing for me! Exactly! So you are not going to sleep with Lee. You are not going to so much as bat a singular eyelash in his direction. Because let me tell you something. As much as I love power and the prospect of booting EJ out of our shared office, I love my wife even more.

You do know, don’t you, Bat? You’re the only man that I love. I was just saying that to get you all hot and bothered. What? Because I know you have a thing for Chelsea, don’t you? So your whole pitching you seducing Leigh was just an act? Can you tell me?

Ow! I didn’t realize you were still here. Oh! I’ll come back. No, no, no, no, no! Don’t rush off on my account. Kristen. Is that really necessary? Do you really think that I’m going to cut you out of your share of the money? You see, nephew, I go by actions, not words. And it’s, uh, pretty obvious. What your intent is.

Fine.

I get it. You’re angry. But you’re also bluffing. Are

you sure about that?

So you’re leaving today? Yeah. I wish I didn’t have to. You know, especially with everything going on. But, uh, Like I told Alex, it’s already way overdue as it is. Yeah, I understand. Sonny, it meant so much to me that you came for the service. Uncle Vic, huh? I love them a lot. And vice versa.

Alex, uh, how is he? How is he? Uh, pretty much how you’d expect. I mean, this is not gonna be easy on him. It’s not gonna be easy on any of us. Yeah, yeah. But, I’m really glad you’re back where you belong, alright? When I got the call, I nearly jumped for joy. Yeah. Losing Victor has been difficult. As has this fallout.

It’s just unending. But, damn. It was so fun kicking Vivian to the curb.

I really wish I could have seen it. Of course, of course, but, you know, she’s, uh, just, uh, she’s gonna keep moving on to some new scheme. And God help whoever’s targeted next.

Hello, Alex. Look, I’m really busy right now. Oh, I’m sure you have time to talk about your brilliant future. Actually, I don’t. What? Listen, now the whole world knows that you are Victor’s son and heir. We can gang up against Maggie and take over the whole company. Yeah, I don’t have any beef against Maggie.

What? She threw you out on your ass at Titan. Return the favor. Have some guts. You want me to show you some guts? Yes. Alright. What? What are you doing? Alex, I’m, I’m trying to talk to you. You’re so rude.

So glad I made you jealous. Yeah, well, I guess I felt that I had something to prove in the remote chance that you were not joking about seducing Lee. And you proved it so well. Now, listen, Lee is not our problem right now. Dimitri is our problem. So why don’t we go downstairs and see his cheating ass before Glenn finds out what he’s doing with Leo.

Or else things are going to go kablooey. Really? Gwenny,

what are you doing here? I thought you had errands. Yes, well, I finished early, see, but I did happen to pass Sweet Bits. And I saw this. It’s in the window, it’s banana cream pie, it’s your favorite. Gwenny, you truly are the greatest friend a girl could ever…

Do

I really need to do this? I have no intention of cheating you, auntie. As you know, I’ve only received the first installment check, but as soon as I get the second one, you will be swimming in cash. I already should be Threatening to tell Gwen about you and Leo. I mean, that didn’t put a fire under your feet.

So guess what? Maybe this will. You talk a good game, Kristen. But of all the horrible things that you have done in your life, you have never actually killed anyone. Not that I know of. Not personally, anyway. And I really don’t think you’re going to start today. Are you?

For some measly money? Aren’t you?

Are you?

Can you? Yeah, Leuschner.

Hey,

you are. Oh, yeah, I was just looking for you two. Oh, a lively story. Now, do you have what we want? Yes. Yes,

I

believe I do. So

good to be home.

You know, it’s so lonely here and empty without you.

Oh, darling. I miss you so much

Listen now the whole world knows that you are Victor’s son and heir We can gang up against Maggie and take over the whole company. Yeah, I don’t have any beef against Maggie What? She threw you out on your ass at Titan. Return the favor. Have some guts.

What in the name of Michael B. Jordan was that about? For sleeping with my husband, you bastard!

You can’t be serious. Try me. You know, it’s funny. Just a little while ago, I was about to hand over the shares to you. But then I got to thinking. And knowing you two brifters, it wouldn’t end here. No, no, you would hold what I did to Gwen over my head for as long as you can profit from it. So really, the best thing that I can do right now is nip this in the butt.

Now, Leo did say that I shouldn’t be going to these extremes, but I’m just gonna have to figure out how to make him understand. We have plenty, don’t, please. Nice try. Listen, if it makes you feel any better, you two are going to make absolutely beautiful corpses. What?

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Taylor: You know, after everything that’s happened, can you even believe that anyone has to warn finn about sheila? Look, I’m gonna stay on top of it. Make sure that he doesn’t do anything to put our daughter or our grandchildren in danger, again.

Brooke: We’re all on the same page when it comes to sheila.

Taylor: The crazy thing is, I could– I could see how finn is struggling with his feelings towards sheila. Like, he doesn’t see it. She knows exactly what she’s doing.

Ridge: He’s being played by that woman. How does he not see that?

Brooke: She’s not capable of loving anybody, only herself.

Taylor: Every single move that sheila has ever made has been for sheila. Her sociopathic behavior just proves what a monster she is. She’s incapable of love or being loved by anyone.

Sheila: Thank you.

Deacon: Yeah.

Sheila: You know, in– in prison, I-I really convinced myself that no one was coming to help. I was at the end of my line, and I-I ruined any chance I ever had a joy in my life. And then all of a sudden you showed up, gave me hope. I just, I get this feeling that at any moment it could just be taken away. You could ruin your relationship with your daughter just by being with me.

Deacon: Sheila, don’t– don’t do that.

Sheila: No, I am– I am just stating facts. Me in your life, it could destroy your relationship with hope.

Thomas: Um, I’m stuck.

Hope: Oh, yeah?

Thomas: Yeah. I feel like I could use some late-night inspiration.

Taylor: You know, I also came back to check on thomas. I think something’s going on with him. Every single time I call him, he can’t get off the phone fast enough. He’s like, “mom, I gotta go. I’m busy.”

Ridge: Yeah. He’s, uh, he’s busy with work and other stuff.

Brooke: Ridge.

Taylor: What do you mean? I– oh, I-I know about the kiss in rome. I-I-I know that. I– but hope admitted that she crossed a line and that’s good. It seems like they– they moved…. what– what is going on?

Ridge: Um, hope and thomas, their relationship has advanced.

Taylor: Advanced? I– what do you mean?

Brooke: Uh, hope and thomas are sleeping together.

Thomas: All this work. Can’t get too stressed, right? Gonna take some breaks from time to time.

Hope: Mm. Thomas.

Thomas: Yeah.

Hope: I just, um, I want to make sure we’re still on the same page. Dinner didn’t change anything.

Thomas: Of course you’re not at the exact same place I am. That doesn’t mean that I don’t still love you and only you.

Deacon: Voila. All your favorites. Hope I got everything.

Sheila: Oh.

[ Laughs ] Champagne and– and licorice. Oh, you thought of everything. I can’t believe that you did all this for me.

Deacon: I want tonight to be unforgettable. I just wanna just focus on the moment, but I wanna discuss where we go from here and all the amazing possibilities.

[ Sheila chuckles nervously ] Hi. I use febreze fade defy plug.

Taylor: Thomas was doing so good. He was– he was just– he was just focused on work. He was being a great dad to douglas. He was keeping his feelings for hope in check. And now he–

Ridge: You know none of us want him to spiral outta control the way he did before, right?

Taylor: Then why didn’t you tell me? I don’t think either of you comprehend what this could do to thomas.

Brooke: I tried talking sense into my daughter. I did, taylor. But both of our children have very strong convictions, and if we push too hard, it could make matters worse.

Ridge: These are two consenting adults. We can’t tell ’em what to do. We just gotta see how it plays out.

Taylor: Plays out? Do you think this is a game? Thomas has been working so hard to get himself healthy mentally. It could put him right back to where he was before. And that is a very dark and dangerous place inside his mind with no way out. I need to talk to thomas.

Deacon: So what are you craving?

Sheila: Oh, that’s a loaded question.

Deacon: Food, sheila. Food. Let me give you a hands-on experience of my culinary prowess. What would you say to, um, ooh, ravioli stuffed with pumpkin, fresh pumpkin, just a hint of nutmeg, hand-rolled dough?

Sheila: Just keep– keep talking.

Deacon: Yeah? Maybe, uh, I don’t know, a filet with burgundy sauce. Or maybe you want something a little more exotic. You know, when a meal’s made with love, you can taste it. Let me show you.

Sheila: No, don’t you– don’t you dare leave my side.

Deacon: Okay.

Thomas: I understand where you are emotionally. That you just got out of a marriage and that’s fresh. But I also really love spending time with you. And I especially love when we’re, uh, intimate.

Hope: Oh, yeah?

Thomas: Yeah.

[ Door opens ]

Taylor: Oh, okay. Um, I am– I’m sorry to interrupt, but I’m kinda glad I did. When my doctor gave me breztri for my copd getting this? Water doesn’t have to be boring. With over 40 delicious flavors, cirkul starts a party for your tastebuds. No sugar, no calories and no artificial flavors. Just good times. Try cirkul, available now at walmart. Ok, someone just did laundry…

Ridge: Well, that’s the last thing that taylor needs right now. She’s all stressed about steffy and the kids and setting them up. And now she’s gotta be concerned about thomas and hope. I should’ve told her earlier. I should’ve.

Brooke: Ridge, you have nothing to feel bad about. You were just trying to keep taylor from worrying.

Ridge: She’s worried now.

Brooke: I just don’t want taylor blaming my daughter for any of this.

Thomas: Hey, mom! What’s up?

Taylor: [ Laughs ] It’s not, “hi, babe. What’s new?”

[ Chuckles ]

Thomas: Um, I– well–

[ Chuckles nervously ] I can totally explain.

Taylor: No. It’s okay. You don’t– I think I’m all caught up. I just talked to ridge and brooke and they– they told me about this. And I– hope, can I have a second, please?

Hope: Yeah. Sure. Of course.

Thomas: Okay. I do only have a minute ’cause I do have a deadline to–

Taylor: Okay. No, you are not shutting me out anymore, thomas. Look, I know that you’re gonna make your own decision on this.

Thomas: I am.

Taylor: I know. But– but as– as your mom, um, I also know how much emotional turmoil that you have been through, and I am concerned that that might happen again. I know that you have deep feelings for hope. And I don’t know, maybe those feelings aren’t going to be reciprocated the way that– that you’d like them to. I just hate for hope to take advantage of your feelings for her.

[ Laughs ]

Sheila: We have had some interesting times together.

Deacon: Hmm. You know, of all the adventures, for lack of a better word, I would have to say that you showing up back from the dead, probably the top of the list.

Sheila: You never gave up on me even when I gave up on myself. I have never met anybody like you, deacon. And I’m so grateful for everything that you’ve done for me. That’s why it’s gonna be so difficult to say goodbye.

Deacon: Sheila, how many times have we said goodbye before only to have fate put us together again? And here we are, together again. Clearly, our story isn’t over yet. And I’m not willing to believe that it ever will be. And I think maybe it’s time that you start believing the same. The subway series menu is getting a new lineup

Ridge: Taylor isn’t blaming anyone. She’s just concerned about our boy. And maybe she should be. At least now everything’s out in the open.

Hope: Well…

[ Clears throat ] …Someone else knows now.

Brooke: What? What happened?

Hope: Taylor. She just walked in on thomas and me in each other’s arms.

Thomas: I do appreciate your concern.

Taylor: Mm-hmm.

Thomas: But it’s not necessary.

Taylor: Okay. So whatever is happening with hope right now, do you think that maybe it might be erasing all the trauma that happened with her in the past?

Thomas: Mom, honestly, I, uh… [ Chuckles ] I’m good. And I’m very happy right now.

Taylor: Right now. Yes, you are. Your life is– is going really well, thomas. And you did that. You did it. And then hope kissed you in rome. And then all of this is happening, and now you’re kind of back to this precarious place where you were before. And–

Thomas: Okay. I-I see that you are seeing a situation that could lead to a situation like before but I promise, mom, everything’s under control.

Taylor: What happens if things don’t work out? Do you think you can handle that?

Thomas: Yeah. Look, it would– it would be painful, sure. But hope and I, we do have an agreement.

Taylor: And who made the terms of the– that agreement? You? Hope. Yeah. You know something, back in the day, you know, I-I didn’t wanna see the covert manipulations that– that brooke was doing to ridge and me until it was too late. And I’m just wondering if– if– if hope isn’t more like her mother than you realize. And if she is, then the only person that’s gonna get hurt in this situation is you. So can you maybe learn from my epic life fails, please? ‘Cause otherwise you might also wake up one day and find yourself alone and beat yourself up for being so sure that you had it all under control.

Sheila: When we’re alone like this it’s like nothing else in the world matters.

Deacon: That’s the goal.

Sheila: [ Sighs ] I just wanna– I wanna savor every second of my time with you. ‘Cause it’s moments like this that– that get me through the days that we’re apart. I know how much you truly care about me. And it– it took me a long time to trust that. But I do now. And I’m– I’m so grateful every day that we found each other.

Deacon: Me too.

Sheila: But I–

Deacon: No, don’t– don’t do that.

Sheila: But reality is right outside that door. And I care too much about you to– to have you ruin your relationship with hope. And– and this restaurant, you have worked so hard for this place. You stand to lose everything if you stay with me, deacon.

Deacon: Sheila, I’m a big boy. I make my own decisions. When I fought for you with the judge to keep you from spending the rest of your life behind bars, I knew it was risky. I didn’t care. All I could think about was you. That’s all that mattered.

Sheila: And now– now what?

Deacon: You know, when you came into my life, you turned it upside down. But it made me realize how alone I was before I met you.

Sheila: I felt the same way.

Deacon: You know, being with you is exciting and dangerous and passionate. And yeah, it’s crazy. But I can’t get enough.

Sheila: [ Laughs ] It has been a wild ride.

Deacon: It’s a ride that I don’t wanna get off of.

Sheila: And you, uh, what– what are you doing, deacon?

Deacon: Sheila, I’ve never met anyone like you in my entire life, and I’m absolutely sure I’m never gonna meet anyone like you again. I’m nuts about you from the top of your head, down to the bottom of your however many toes you have left. I never wanna be apart from you again. Look, I know that this is risky. It’s a gamble, but anything worth fighting for is, and I’ve always been a gambling man, and so this time, I’m gambling on love because sheila, I do love you. So, sheila carter, will you make me the happiest and probably the craziest man in los angeles? Say yes. Marry me. Say you’ll be my wife.

Interview with Rebecca Morris

TV Interview!

 

Author Rebecca Morris

Interview with Rebecca Morris, Executive Producer of “Amish Stud: The Eli Weaver Story” on Lifetime by Suzanne 9/20/23

This is an intriguing movie airing tomorrow, September 30 on Lifetime. Rebecca is not only one of the EPs – she co-wrote the book about this case on which the movie is based, “A Killing in Amish Country: Sex, Betrayal and a Cold-blooded Murder” (along with author Gregg Olsen). In fact, she’s a New York Times Bestselling Author! It was my privilege to speak with her about this movie and this case.

I apologize if my questions during this interview made it sound like I expected her to be more involved with the movie itself. I really wasn’t told ahead of time about the extent of her involvement (I probably should have asked, so that’s on me). I’m very glad we spoke, though, as it was educational as well as entertaining.

At any rate, I enjoyed speaking with her. I hope you enjoy this interview. You should definitely check it out. It has a good story and an amazing cast! Luke Macfarlane , Kirsten Vangsness, Miranda MacDougall, Clare Filipow and the others do a really great job. When you watch this movie, you will learn things you probably didn’t know about the modern Amish community. The ending of the movie is chilling, since it is about a real case. Lovers of true crime will no doubt really enjoy this movie. If you’re a fan of Luke Macfarlane, you will be shocked by his performance (he’s also an EP). It’s a very different role than the others you’ve seen him play.

All produced earlier this year, the lineup includes Lifetime’s milestone 500th original movie, the two-night event Murdaugh Murders: The Movie starring Bill Pullman as Alex Murdaugh who, on the surface is a prominent and respected South Carolina lawyer, loving husband and father but behind closed doors, lived a drug-filled secret life that ultimately led to murder.

AMISH STUD: THE ELI WEAVER STORY – Premieres September 30
Devoted to her husband, kids and faith, Barbara Weaver (Miranda MacDougall, The Flash) was content leading a traditional life in her conservative Ohio Amish community—with no modern conveniences.  Her husband Eli (EP, Luke Macfarlane, Bros), however, wanted the things that were forbidden to him as an Amish man. He gave into the temptations of women and technology, leading a secret life with the online alias “Amish Stud” to meet with women outside of his marriage bed.  Eli found his pick of curious women fascinated by the Amish lifestyle, and often spoke to his mistresses about his desire to kill his wife.  When Barbara is found dead from a shotgun wound, all eyes turn to Eli. But with his rock solid alibi, investigators had nowhere to turn, until they discover Eli had a secret cell phone. Their investigations led them to Barb Raber (Kirsten Vangsness, Criminal Minds), a married Conservative Mennonite who had been having an affair with Eli and who was plotting with him to murder his wife. Ultimately, it is up to the detectives investigating the crime to find justice for Barbara Weaver. Amish Stud is based on the book, “A Killing in Amish Country: Sex, Betrayal and a Cold-Blooded Murder” by bestselling authors Gregg Olsen and Rebecca Morris.

Days Update Friday, September 29, 2023

Days of Our Lives Update

Days of Our Lives logo

Update written by Joseph

At the Kiriakis Mansion, Vivian is on the phone talking about getting rid of everything of Maggie’s until Maggie then walks in.

Alex is passed out on his couch until he is awoken by Sonny knocking at his door. Sonny walks in and informs him that dad told him the score. Alex clarifies that’s Sonny’s dad while Justin is his ex-dad but dad no more.

Kristen enters the living room of the DiMera Mansion where Gwen tells her that it’s time to turn this in to the darkest and bleakest day that Dimitri and Leo have ever experienced. Gwen states that they betrayed her in the most unimaginable way and declares that now they just have to find a punishment worthy of their crimes.

Leo has a nightmare about Dimitri killing Stefan and Gabi. Leo then wakes up in a panic. Leo grabs his phone and calls Dimitri but he ignores the call.

Dimitri enters the living room of the DiMera Mansion and questions why the door was closed since there’s no secrets here. Gwen tells Dimitri that she didn’t want him to hear what she was asking Kristen. Gwen claims she was asking Kristen what to surprise Dimitri with which he questions. Gwen thinks he deserves a very fun surprise because he’s the man she fell in love with almost immediately overnight as she kisses him. Dimitri claims that he fell in love with her as quickly. Kristen assures that Gwen never lets herself forget that.

Sonny argues that Alex can’t think like that. Alex says he’s just telling it like it is since the guy that he thought was his dad apparently had nothing to do with bringing him in to the world. Alex remarks that it explains why Justin is a dignified, well-respected guy and he’s not. Alex adds that it explains why Sonny is liked by everybody and he’s not. Sonny calls that untrue. Alex asks him to leave but Sonny refuses, insisting that nothing has changed. Sonny argues that he’s still his brother and Justin’s still his dad. Alex complains about his mother having an affair with Victor and that Victor didn’t think he deserved to know Justin wasn’t his father. Sonny states that their relationships, connection, and love doesn’t have to change. Alex calls it reality. Alex declares that his dad is not his dad and he and Sonny are not brothers.

Maggie asks if Vivian got her message last night. Vivian confirms that she ignored it and warns that she’s trespassing. Maggie then reveals that Victor did have a will after all and presents it to Vivian.

Marlena joins Kate at the Brady Pub. Kate asks about visiting Eric at Sloan’s apartment. Marlena calls it lovely, bright and spacious but the important thing is that Eric seems to be happy. Kate wishes them both the very best. Kate asks if Marlena’s heard the latest about Vivian. Marlena says she heard Vivian had resurfaced in the Kiriakis Mansion and was parading as Victor’s widow. Kate confirms that’s the gist but she heard from Bonnie that all of that is about to end. Kate is very pleased to report that Vivian is going to be kicked out on her ass.

Vivian tells Maggie that she can wave papers in her face all she wants but Victor told his lawyer to destroy his will. Maggie confirms that he did but then he wrote a new will. Vivian calls it preposterously convenient and unbelievable. Maggie reads to Vivian that Victor discovered his divorce to Vivian was never finalized and it was a mistake that he intended to rectify when he returns to Salem. Maggie reads that Victor intended to finalize his divorce and make Maggie his wife as soon as possible and he wanted to make sure that Maggie was provided for. Maggie reads that Victor left 50% of his estate to her and says the rest doesn’t involve her. Vivian brings up the other 50%.

Sonny wishes Alex wouldn’t wallow in his self pity when he should be counting his blessings. Sonny argues that Justin is a great guy with a huge heart, who loves all of his kids including him. Sonny tells Alex that he’s being self indulgent and pathetic. Alex tells Sonny to leave. Sonny informs him that he is leaving Salem because he has a plane to catch in an hour. Sonny wishes he didn’t have to leave Justin and Alex like this but he has to get back. Sonny says that in spite of everything, he knows Alex is dealing with a lot right now and that he’s just venting. Sonny tells Alex to stop wallowing, drinking himself in to a stupor, and isolating himself. Alex shouts that he needs time to think about the fact that everything he thought about himself up to this point was a lie, like thinking he knew who his father and brothers were. Sonny argues that Justin’s DNA is not what made them brothers, but the time they spent together. Sonny points out his mom not being Alex’s biological mother. Sonny insists that their past doesn’t change. Sonny says screw you to Alex for saying he’s not his brother.

Gabi and Stefan talk in their room. Gabi questions Dimitri ignoring their threatening text messages. Gabi talks about Dimitri losing his money when they reveal his wedding to Gwen and his manhood when Gwen finds out he’s been sleeping with Leo. Gabi says once they get Dimitri’s shares, they will be top dogs at DiMera. Stefan says not so fast as he’s done some thinking and he counted the shares. Stefan then reveals that if they get Dimitri’s shares, they will only have enough for a tie.

Dimitri tells Gwen that she doesn’t need to surprise him. Gwen claims that she read that surprises are the secret to a very happy marriage. Dimitri says he’ll leave them to it then but Kristen tells him not to go as they need to talk about outstanding DiMera business. The doorbell rings and Dimitri says they can talk about that anytime. Dimitri says he will get the door while they continue planning his surprise. After Dimitri exits, Kristen complains that he couldn’t wait to get away from her. Kristen says to just wait until he sees what kind of surprise Gwen has waiting for him. Gwen remarks that it won’t be the kind he’s expecting. Kristen calls it a punishment and declares there’s only one punishment that fits Dimitri’s crime. Gwen says she’s listening as Kristen declares that they have to kill him.

Dimitri answers the door at the DiMera Mansion to see Leo, who hopes that he did not kill Gabi and Stefan. Dimitri confirms that he did not and tells him to keep it down before the whole house knows his plan. Dimitri notes that the day is still young.

Gabi questions Stefan counting up the shares. Stefan repeats that getting Dimitri’s would only put them at a tie 7 to 7 with EJ’s camp. Stefan goes over who they have while EJ has Tony, Chad, Li, Johnny, and Kate. Stefan can’t imagine anyone switching sides at this point. Gabi brings up Li. Stefan says there’s no way he would switch sides as there’s too much history. Gabi argues that it would take some convincing but it’s possible. Stefan questions how. Gabi responds that it won’t be hard as she will seduce him which Stefan laughs at.

Gwen asks if Kristen is joking about killing Dimitri. Kristen responds that she’s only thinking of her. Kristen brings up Maggie being out on the street because Victor died without a will and now Vivian has everything because she was still Victor’s legal wife. Kristen adds that if Dimitri dies, Gwen gets every dime coming to him. Gwen reminds her that the marriage has to be in effect for at least a year before the money kicks in. Kristen points out that it doesn’t say anything about if one of them die. Gwen argues that it’s only for her wanting him dead while Kristen doesn’t care about anyone but herself and what she would get, so she questions why Kristen is so willing to go nuclear. Kristen responds that she knows Dimitri’s kind and these things you just have to nip in the bud. Gwen responds that she’s not a murderer. Kristen argues that Gwen broke out of prison to kill her own sister. Gwen denies that and says she only looked to set up Sarah to make it look like she was attacking Abigail. Gwen brings up Dimitri going to deposit a check in to a bank account that he thinks she doesn’t know about. Gwen suggests she go to the bank and withdraw all the money from the account and then she and Kristen can split that, feeling that’s enough for revenge. Kristen remarks that Gwen has become such a prude. Kristen decides if that’s what Gwen can live with. Gwen says she will go to the bank now and tells Kristen to hold down the fort as she exits. Kristen remarks that she’s going to do a lot more than that. Kristen then goes to the safe and removes a gun. Kristen loads the gun and declares that Dimitri has it coming to him.

Leo tells Dimitri that it’s wrong and dangerous. Dimitri assures that he’s not going to prison and he’s not giving Gabi and Stefan his shares of DiMera. Dimitri complains about Gabi texting him and remarks that she really does need to die. Leo argues that he won’t get away with it and tells him to just let Gabi and Stefan have the shares since he will still have tons of money from marrying Gwen. Leo feels there has to be another way and worries that if the cops question him, he will fold and then he’ll lose Dimitri forever. Dimitri assures that he won’t lose him so Leo pleads with him to find another way and not kill Gabi and Stefan. Dimitri reluctantly agrees. Dimitri and Leo then hug as Gwen opens the front door and sees them together.

Alex remarks that Sonny’s tough love is just what he needed. Sonny asks if Alex has at least talked to Justin. Alex calls Justin his cousin while Sonny insists that he’s his dad and the guy that raised him. Alex states that he hasn’t talked to him since he told him about the letter and then he got drunk. Sonny complains that Alex is too self-absorbed to think about how this new development is affecting everyone else. Sonny tells Alex that Justin is hurting too, so he suggests Alex get cleaned up and go talk to him. Alex feels there’s no point. Sonny questions what he means. Alex argues that none of it makes sense because at the end of the day, Victor knew that he was his dad and never said a word. Sonny knows that’s messed up but argues there has to be a reason. Alex questions what reason he could have possibly had. Sonny suggests maybe he thought Justin would be a better father but he’d have to talk to Philip about that. Alex questions why he had to find out after Victor was dead. Alex asks if leaving him half his fortune is to make up for lying to him for his whole life. Alex doesn’t even know if he wants the inheritance. Sonny argues that the money is not half as important as how everyone is feeling right now. Sonny encourages Alex to come to terms with this, deal with the anger, and figure out why Victor did what he did. Sonny adds that Alex has to think about Justin because he’s just as messed up as he is about this. Sonny assures Alex that Justin loves him like a son and always will. Sonny says the same for himself loving Alex like a brother. Sonny believes everything else is meaningless in his book and asks Alex if he agrees with him. Alex responds that even if he does, he can’t just let go of the fact that he was deceived all of his life and he can’t just suddenly learn that Victor is his father and not be changed in very fundamental ways. Alex asks if Sonny understands that he has to rethink everything.

Maggie tells Vivian about Alex and that Anjelica’s letter and Victor’s will were crystal clear. Vivian remarks that she was just telling Alex that he had Anjelica’s killer instinct but it turns out he has a double dose. Maggie repeats that she and Alex get half of the estate while there is no third. Vivian argues that it’s all hers as she grabs the will from Maggie and rips it up.

Kate informs Marlena about Victor writing a new will to the relief of the family. Marlena guesses that means Vivian has no claim on anything which Kate confirms and repeats that Vivian is out on her ass. Kate imagines how satisfying it will be to picture Vivian finally getting what she deserves.

Maggie tells Vivian that was really dramatic but completely useless, like her. Vivian tells Maggie to get out of her house. Maggie asks if she really thinks she’d let her in the same room as the original copy of the will. Maggie argues that Vivian has always underestimated her. Vivian refuses to leave. Maggie calls her predictable and declares that she came prepared which Vivian questions. Maggie then calls in Deputy Pratt, who serves Vivian with an eviction notice as he then escorts Vivian out of the Kiriakis Mansion.

Gwen shuts the front door before Dimitri and Leo see her and then calls out to Kristen that she won’t be long so that they hear her coming. Gwen then exits the mansion and greets Dimitri and Leo, asking what they are plotting. Leo hugs Gwen and claims he came to see her as he missed her and hoped they could grab breakfast before work. Gwen says she’s sorry but she has lots of secret errands to run in town. Leo says they’ll do it soon then. Gwen then asks Dimitri about hogging Leo since it seems like ages ago that he went to answer the door. Dimitri claims that after Kristen and Gwen’s talk about surprises, he was talking to Leo about what he could do for her. Gwen remarks that it’s not easy to pull one over on her as she kisses Dimitri in front of Leo. Gwen wishes them luck and says she won’t be long as she walks away. Dimitri assures Leo that he did not enjoy that kiss. Dimitri complains about getting another text from Gabi and says he should go deal with them. Leo questions how he plans to deal with them. Dimitri tells Leo to relax as everything is going to work out. Leo says he will relax as long as Stefan and Gabi will still be alive when he’s done. Dimitri then heads back in to the DiMera Mansion. Leo worries that his entire life is about to go up in smoke.

Stefan tells Gabi that she is not going to seduce Li. Gabi asks why not since he still has a thing for her. Stefan says as much as he loves power and booting EJ out of their shared office, he loves his wife even more and kisses her. Gabi assures that Stefan is the only man that she loves and that she was only saying that to get him all hot and bothered. Stefan realizes her pitching seducing Li was just an act as they kiss.

Dimitri returns to the living room and says he didn’t realize Kristen was still there. Kristen tells him not to rush off on her account and pulls the gun on him. Dimitri asks if that’s really necessary and if she really thinks he’s going to cut her out of her share of the money. Kristen responds that she goes by actions, not words, and it’s obvious what his intent is. Dimitri gets that she’s angry but feels she’s also bluffing. Kristen asks if he’s sure about that.

Sonny goes to see Maggie at the Kiriakis Mansion and tells her that he’s leaving today, though he wishes he didn’t have to with everything going on but it’s way overdue as it is. Maggie tells him that it meant so much to her that he came to Victor’s service. Maggie asks how Alex is. Sonny responds that he’s pretty much how she’d expect as this is not going to be easy on him. Maggie says it won’t be easy on any of them. Sonny tells Maggie that he’s really glad she is back where she belongs. Maggie talks about losing Victor being difficult as well as the fallout, but admits it was so fun to kick Vivian to the curb. Sonny wishes he could’ve seen it. Maggie says that Vivian will keep moving on to some new scheme and God help whoever she targets next.

Vivian goes to see Alex, who says he’s really busy right now. Vivian is sure he has time to talk about his future but he says he doesn’t. Vivian argues that now that the whole world knows Alex is Victor’s son and heir, they can team up against Maggie and take over the company. Alex responds that he doesn’t have any beef against Maggie which Vivian questions. Vivian argues that Maggie threw Alex out on his ass at Titan while now he can return the favor. Vivian tells Alex to show some guts but Alex instead escorts her out and slams the door.

Stefan and Gabi get dressed again after having sex as Stefan jokes about having something to prove in case she wasn’t joking about seducing Li. Gabi states that their problem right now is Dimitri and suggests they go downstairs to see him before Gwen finds out that he’s cheating with Leo.

Gwen goes to Leo’s room at the Salem Inn. Leo questions what she’s doing there as he thought she had errands. Gwen responds that she finished early and stopped by the Bakery. Gwen presents Leo with a banana cream pie and then smashes it in his face.

Dimitri asks Kristen if they really have to do this, insisting he has no intention of cheating her. Dimitri states that he’s only gotten the first installment of his trust but as soon as he gets the second, she will be swimming in cash. Kristen argues that she already should be. Kristen says threatening to tell Gwen about he and Leo didn’t put a fire under his feet but maybe this will. Dimitri remarks that Kristen talks a good game but she’s never actually killed anyone that he knows of, so he really doesn’t think she’s going to start today. Dimitri then takes the gun from Kristen and remarks that he knows how to read people. Kristen warns Dimitri that this isn’t over as she then walks out of the mansion. Gabi and Stefan come in. Dimitri claims that he was just looking for them. Gabi asks if he has what they want. Dimitri responds that he does and pulls the gun on them.

Maggie begins putting her things back in the Kiriakis Mansion. Maggie picks up her and Victor’s wedding photo and says it’s so good to be home but it’s so lonely and empty without Victor. Maggie cries that she misses him so much.

Alex sits at home and thinks back to Vivian urging him to have some guts.

Leo questions Gwen smashing the pie in his face. Gwen responds that was for sleeping with her husband and calls him a bastard.

Stefan argues that Dimitri can’t be serious. Dimitri says a little while ago, he was going to hand over the shares to them but knowing them, it wouldn’t end here and they’d hold what he did to Gwen over his head for as long as they could profit from it. Dimitri says he has to nip this in the bud. Dimitri adds that Leo told him not to go to these extremes but he’s just going to have to find a way to make him understand. Gabi pleads with him and says he can keep his shares as they have plenty. Dimitri remarks that they will make beautiful corpses. Stefan turns to cover Gabi while Dimitri is suddenly shot from behind by Vivian!

Young & The Restless Transcript

 

Y&R logo

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Tucker: Hello, phyllis.

Phyllis: Tucker, I want my money.

Tucker: Oh, I’m fine. How are you?

Phyllis: This isn’t funny. I did what you asked, and now i want my final payment, please.

Tucker: You’ll get it.

Phyllis: When?

Tucker: Uh, there’s been a slight delay.

Phyllis: Tucker, if you’re messing with me…

Tucker: Uh, phyllis, relax. I’m sure it’s just a simple misunderstanding. Come to my suite and we’ll clear everything up.

Phyllis: Yeah, you bet we will.

Billy: Hey. Sounded a little intense. You okay?

Phyllis: Yeah, I’m fine.

Billy: Come on. Don’t kid a kidder. What’s going on?

Audra: So, how’s the revenge business these days? Have you planned your attack on jabot and the abbotts yet?

Tucker: Why don’t you say that a little louder?

Audra: Uh, there’s no one around. You know, and I’m dying to know, have you sprung your secret weapon yet?

Tucker: All the elements are in place.

Audra: Uh-oh. That sounds like there’s a snag.

Tucker: Nothing i can’t handle.

Diane: So, mamie just showed up?

Jack: Said she had some business to take care of.

Diane: What kind of business?

Jack: Well, she was kind of mysterious about that. She, uh, she said part of it was settling old debts.

Diane: Sounds ominous.

Jack: Mamie has a special talent. She pretends to answer your question and then very deftly changes the subject. Whatever her business is, it has little to do with us, I think.

Diane: Well, thank god for that. We have enough mysteries to deal with.

[ Knocking on door ]

Emily: Excuse me, mr. Abbott, but I think you’ll need to see this.

Jack: What is it?

Emily: The financial team red-flagged a transaction.

Chance: Well, hey.

Summer: Good morning.

Chance: It is a very good morning, isn’t it?

Summer: Okay, what’s got you in such a great mood?

Chance: Well, it won’t be official ’til later, but you’re looking at the new chief of police.

Summer: Chance, that’s great!

Chance: I know, right?

Summer: Oh, my gosh. Hey, I’m so happy for you. You deserve this, congratulations.

Chance: Thank you. Thank you. I was hoping to celebrate with sharon, but she’s out of town, so I guess I’m gonna have to toast to myself, huh?

Summer: Okay, that– that’s not a celebration. That sounds more like a surrender to me. Why don’t I buy you lunch and, um, we could toast you together?

Chance: Ah, you don’t have to do that. Come on. That’s a lot.

Summer: No, I want to. This is a big deal. You worked really hard for this and it should be celebrated. Properly.

[ Chance chuckles ]

Nikki: So, you spoke to victoria.

Nick: I did. She is hell-bent on proving that dad isn’t fit to run newman right now.

[ Nikki sighs ]

Nikki: This is insane. She can’t do this.

Nick: Well, I have a feeling she’s gonna try. And let’s be honest, dad has given her plenty of ammunition with the way he’s handled all these changes lately.

Nikki: Hey, careful, son. That almost sounds like you agree with your sister, that your father is incompetent.

Nick: Mom, I know vic is more angry than she is concerned. She was demoted. She doesn’t like it. This is a countermeasure.

Nikki: I agree.

Nick: So, I want to know what you think.

Nikki: What I think?

Nick: Yeah, just because vic’s on a tear right now, it doesn’t mean there isn’t cause for concern. And mom, you would know better than anyone. So, what do you think? Do we need to be worried about dad right now? For people who are a little intense about hydration.

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Nikki: I am worried. But not about your father’s mental capacity. He’s as sharp as ever.

Nick: Then what?

Nikki: I think that victoria will stir up so much conflict that he could take on more responsibility trying to protect what he has built. You know, it is his life’s work. I mean, you all are his children, and he loves you dearly, but newman enterprises was his first baby and he will hang on to that for dear life. Or until the stress kills him.

Nick: Is that what you’re afraid of?

Nikki: I know my husband. I know that he still thinks he can slay all the dragons and conquer the world, but he’s just a man. He gets tired. He’s disappointed sometimes and all he wants to do is go to bed at night knowing that what he built will outlast him and– and keep growing. I mean, it– it’s his legacy. And sometimes, I think victoria loses sight of that. But if you were to return–

Nick: Mom, no, don’t go there. The last thing I want to do in this world is get between nate and adam while they’re trying to mark their territory.

Nikki: Oh, my god. I know. I couldn’t believe it when victor made adam nate’s assistant.

Nick: What did you think of that move? I actually thought it was kind of funny.

Nikki: Well, adam’s comeuppance was well deserved. But you are right about that situation, it is a ticking time bomb.

Nick: Yeah. Okay, so outside of coming back to work here, what can I do to help?

Nikki: Speak to your father. Get your own sense of how he’s doing and forget thinking of this as a job at newman. This is something we all have to keep an eye on, as a family.

Victor: Keep an eye on what?

Phyllis: Uh, I’m just– I’m looking for a job and I’ve had a lot of doors shut in my face, so that was just one of them.

Billy: Yeah, I’m sorry to hear that.

Phyllis: Are you really?

Billy: No, I– I’ve been in the barrel myself more than a few times and, uh, it’s not fun.

Phyllis: No, it is not fun at all.

Billy: And I’m assuming after the whole nick, sharon, adam thing blew up, that probably left you high and dry, huh?

Phyllis: Yeah. Well, I will land on my feet, I always do, you know that.

Billy: Yeah. You will. But the timing of it. That’s– that’s gotta be really tough. I mean, you got your– your legal fees, insurance payout, once you faked your death, and I know insurance companies, they frown upon fraud. How do you pay all that back, phyllis?

Phyllis: I appreciate your concern.

Billy: Yeah, I’m just, you know, just trying to be a friend.

Phyllis: Okay, friend. Well, this is what I think. I don’t think you give a damn about me or my finances. You and everybody else in this town looks at me like I’m the walking dead. So, how about this? How about you dispense of your faux sympathy card? Okay? Ask me what you really want to know, billy.

Diane: That sounds like bad news.

Jack: It’s not good.

Diane: Well, what happened?

Jack: It was a large money transfer out of our research and development fund into an account that’s tied to… an old lab subdivision.

Diane: And it wasn’t authorized?

Jack: No, somebody had to sign off on this. Thing is that division was shut down years ago when ashley first came back to jabot. This account has been dormant since then.

Diane: So, who okayed the payment?

Jack: My brother.

Depend keeps you drier

than ever…

Summer: Thank you.

Chance: Thank you again for this. It’s very kind of you.

Summer: Well, we’ve both got to eat, right?

Chance: You know what I mean. You know what? I think I’m a little bit more excited about this than I thought I’d be. So, I’m glad I could share the news with you.

Summer: I’m glad you did too. Now, I know exactly who to call when I get a parking ticket.

Chance: Friends and family discount.

Summer: Exactly. But I swear I won’t hit up my friend, the chief, for a favor if my mom ever pulls a stunt of hers again.

Chance: Ooh, yeah, I, uh, appreciate that. I’m not gonna lie. It still feels a little surreal to me.

Summer: What does?

Chance: Being called chief. I’ve been following orders my entire life and, yeah, I still got some people to answer to, but I am responsible for a lot of police officers now who will be looking at me for guidance. I don’t know. It just feels a little–

Summer: A little overwhelming?

Chance: Yeah. Yeah. You know, sharon was the one that convinced me I can continue to do what I love and be the guy at the front of the room. And yeah, I eventually took it on board, but–

Summer: It’s new and it’s a really big change for you. So, you feel a little nervous.

[ Chance chuckles ]

Chance: It inspires confidence, doesn’t it?

Summer: I think it’s perfectly normal. But hey, they wouldn’t have chosen you for the job if they didn’t think that you were the right person for it. So, I think that you’re just gonna have to get used to it, chief.

[ Summer chuckles ]

Billy: Look, phyllis… I think you’re scared. You owe a lot of money and your usual sources are all dried up, and when your back’s against the wall, you start to get desperate and you make bad choices.

Phyllis: Oh.

Billy: Like getting involved with tucker mccall.

Phyllis: Mm. Wow. Listen to you. All of that from one itty bit of a phone call you overheard. Wow, you should be a fortune teller. I hear there’s a carnival leaving town.

Billy: You haven’t answered my question.

Phyllis: What’s the question?

Billy: You and tucker.

Phyllis: But why would you think I’d be involved with tucker mccall again?

Billy: I’ve seen the two of you together more than a few times. The vibe I get is that the two of you are cooking something up that’s a little south of legal.

Phyllis: Ooh, maybe we’re having an affair.

Billy: You have a better taste than that.

Phyllis: Do I, billy? Do I? Well, maybe we are commiserating about the demise of the greatest love story ever told.

Billy: No. I think tucker is using you for something very specific. And if you are as financially unstable as I think you are… you could be convinced to give him a hand.

Victor: I’m surprised to see you here. I thought you were busy building an empire with sharon.

Nick: Vic is worried about your health, your mental capacity.

Victor: You think I’ve lost my grip?

Nick: I don’T. But I am questioning your judgment lately, especially with this move of making adam nate’s assistant.

Victor: For your information, adam wanted to start from the bottom up. So, I simply accommodated him.

Nick: And you don’t see that this could end up in a disaster like on every front.

Victor: Can you think of a better way to find out if adam is sincere?

Nick: He’s not sincere.

Victor: How the hell do you know?

Nick: Because it’s just another one of his moves. This kinder, gentler, humble adam ready to roll up his sleeves and get to work. He is conning you, dad, once again.

Victor: Your opinion is duly noted, son.

Nick: And ignored as usual, right?

Victor: Why do you even care?

Nick: Because, dad, I care about you. I care about this family. The way I see it, there’s only two possible scenarios from this. Either nate is using adam to get what he wants or adam is using nate to get what he wants. Actually, I take that back. There’s a third scenario. Let’s call it the doomsday scenario, where those two team up against you and come after you. And you never see it coming. No one’s here, right. Are you getting this? Water doesn’t have to be boring.

Nikki: Tucker, I heard you were back in town. Without ashley, it appears.

Tucker: It’s always a pleasure to see you. All right, we’ll talk again later when I have more information for you.

Nikki: It is not in your best interest to have any relationship with that man.

[ Knocking on door ]

Billy: Hi. Got here as fast as I could. What’s up?

Jack: Why did you transfer these funds without running it by me first?

Billy: I didn’T.

Jack: Well, according to this, you very much did.

Billy: Yeah, I can see what it says here, jack, but I didn’t authorize the transfer of these funds. Why would I do that? We don’t use this lab anymore.

Jack: Yes, I’m aware.

Billy: Okay?

Jack: Somebody moved this money, billy.

Billy: I’m sorry, are you calling me a liar?

Jack: No.

Billy: Good. Nice to know you don’t think I’m a thief.

Jack: No, of course not. But somebody is setting this up to make it look like you’re embezzling money. We have to figure out who that is before they hit us again.

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 have seen it coming. You should have 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.

Tucker: There she is.

Phyllis: I want the rest of my money.

Tucker: No kidding.

Phyllis: I did what you asked me to do. I want my money.

Tucker: You didn’t quite do what I asked you to do.

Phyllis: What do you mean?

Tucker: You hacked into jabot’s research and development account and transferred the money to a dormant account authorized by billy.

Phyllis: Oh, yeah.

Tucker: Yes, you were supposed to transfer the money into billy’s personal account.

Phyllis: I must have misunderstood you.

Tucker: Yes, you must have. And now, you’ve succeeded in making things that much more complicated.

Phyllis: Well, I can trigger it to go anywhere just with one touch of a key.

Tucker: Fantastic. Do it.

Phyllis: Give me my money.

Tucker: Ah, so that’s it.

Phyllis: Yeah, that’s it. Um, I’m sorry. Did you not think I would protect myself? Did you not know that I would safeguard things for myself? What? You think I was just gonna hand you the key to the vault?

Tucker: I’m a little hurt you don’t trust me, phyllis.

Phyllis: Oh, don’t be hurt. And by the way, no one trusts you, and I set up some secondary triggers, just so you know, tucker. Just in case you decided to stiff me.

Tucker: To do what?

Phyllis: Well, to, um, transfer money into your account from my computer that I put in your name.

Tucker: You’re bluffing.

Phyllis: Try me.

Tucker: I was watching you the entire time.

Phyllis: Yeah, you were watching me and I commend you, you hire the best. And I am the best at what I do. So, I put in some other details, but I don’t need to go into that. Um, bottom line is, I hold all the cards.

Tucker: Hm. And what do you want?

Phyllis: $1.1 million transferred into my account. Plus, an extra 20% for aggravating me. Imagine if you could get ahead of your ibs-C… I am in love with mixtiles. You just pull the adhesive off the back and stick it to any surface, and there’s no damage to your walls. Go to mixtiles.Com and pick sizing, filters and it really makes it fit the decor of your home. Order now and get up to 50% off. So I didn’t think I needed swiffer,

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Tucker: I got to hand it to you, phyllis, you really are a work of art when it comes to playing all the angles. Clever, persistent. You and I actually, make a very good team.

Phyllis: We’re not a team. There’s no way in hell we’d ever be a team.

Tucker: I don’t know, I’m– I’m onto some pretty exciting things right now. I could make you a part of something that would make this little stunt seem like child’s play.

Phyllis: Okay, I only did this because I needed to land on my feet again, and that’s it. But we’re done here.

Tucker: And then, what are you gonna do?

Phyllis: I’m gonna change my life. Live like a model citizen. I promised my kids.

[ Tucker laughing ]

Tucker: That’s hilarious.

Phyllis: Well, of course, you’d think it was hilarious, wouldn’t you, because you’re a psychopath, and you think that anybody who wants to do good things is a sucker. I mean, I’m actually, disgusted that I was even a part of this, quite honestly, but I did it because I had to pay off a debt, and now, that’s through. So, we’re over.

Tucker: You’re really negative, you know that? It’s very disappointing.

Phyllis: Well, I think you’ll get over it.

Tucker: And I think you’re going to burn through all this money. And then, I think you’ll be back in the game again. And you’ll be looking for your next mark, your next sucker. We are alike, aren’t we, phyllis? You don’t want to admit it, but… you are a fool to think you can change your true nature.

Phyllis: I’d rather die than be that person. What are you doing?

Tucker: What you asked. Transferring the rest of the money to your account. Done. Your turn.

[ Keyboard clattering ] Done? The money is in billy’s personal account now, yes? Good.

[ Tucker sighing ]

Phyllis: I wish I could say it was a pleasure.

Tucker: No, wait a minute, wait, wait, wait. We’re not quite finished.

Victor: Well, son, from what you’ve told me, there’s only one solution, right?

Nick: And that is what?

Victor: If you don’t think victoria and I can handle whatever scenario you have described, then, perhaps, time for you to come back, give us your support.

Nick: [ Sighs ] Yeah. Mom asked me the same thing. I’ll give you the same answer I gave her. Thank you, but no.

Victor: Son, I’ve made it amply clear that I would love nothing more than the whole family to come and work together at newman enterprises.

Nick: Yeah, I’m beginning to think all this chaos you’ve created is just an elaborate move to lure me back.

Victor: What if that were true?

Nick: Well, it’s not like you haven’t done it before.

Victor: You do what you have to do, son.

Nick: I will. I just wanted you to know how I feel about all this.

Victor: You pointed out a number of scenarios that could be problems. I offered a solution. You think it’s emotional blackmail. This meeting is over.

Nick: So?

Victor: Uh-huh.

Nick: Yeah.

Audra: Look, you don’t have to worry about tucker. We used to work together. We’re casual friends, that’s it. He’s a brilliant man. Often infuriating, but often misunderstood.

Nikki: There is nothing to be misunderstood about tucker mccall. I mean, he’s a menace. He creates chaos just for his own enjoyment, which i guess, ashley finally remembered since she’s run for the hills.

Audra: Do you know what happened there? I mean, does anybody?

Nikki: I have my theories, but that’s not the point right now. But I must say, between your misguided affair with kyle and your continued friendship with tucker, I am starting to question your judgment.

Audra: Well, I ended my relationship with kyle on your orders, so are you now ordering me to stop being friends with tucker? You know, maybe, I should present you with a list of all the people I know, so they can be properly vetted.

Nikki: Well, that’s a bit extreme.

Audra: Is it? I don’t know because it’s starting to feel like you want to control every facet of my life. You know, professionally and personally. And I’m just curious why.

[Music playing] Subject 1: Cancer is a long journey.

Nikki: I assure you, audra, your private life is your own.

Audra: Thank you.

Nikki: As long as it doesn’t include anything that could have a negative impact on newman media. And I only warn you about tucker for your own good.

Audra: Well, I– I told you, nikki, um, I used to work with him, I know him, okay? Trust me, I can definitely hold my own with whatever tucker throws my away.

Nikki: Sounds like you have already experienced the dangerous side of him.

Audra: Yeah, well, he has his ways. You know, we don’t always agree on things. Uh, but he’s really been much more of a mentor to me than anything else.

Nikki: A mentor?

Audra: Yes, uh, he’s taught me a lot.

Nikki: Is he still teaching you?

Audra: I don’t understand.

Nikki: Tucker mentioned an issue he wanted to talk to you about, but later, when he had more information to share. What is that about? And what kind of mentoring is tucker doing?

Chance: That is great. Thank you for dinner.

[ Summer chuckling ]

Nick: Hey guys.

Summer: Oh, hey, dad.

Nick: My super girl. Chance, it’s good to see you, man.

Chance: You too, man. Well, I better run.

Nick: Oh, don’t take off on my account.

Chance: No, I, uh– I gotta get ready for a news conference.

Nick: News conference?

Chance: She can fill you in.

[ Laughs ] Thank you for being on my team.

Summer: Any time.

[ Summer sighing ] What?

Nick: Nothing.

Summer: No, what– what?

Nick: I just, uh, did not know you and chance were close.

Summer: I don’t know if we’re close, but yes, we’re friends. He was really there for me when I was going through everything with mom.

Nick: Okay.

Summer: And friends is all that we are to answer your next question.

Nick: I wasn’t asking. But you did just remind me, again, what your mother did to you.

Summer: [ Sighs ] We’re working things out.

Nick: What does that mean?

Summer: It means that I’ve forgiven her, and, um, we’re starting to heal. What about you?

Nick: What about me?

Summer: Are you ever gonna forgive mom?

Nick: I’ve pretty much just avoided her since she got out of jail. I’m afraid of what I might say to her.

Summer: So, you’re still angry.

Nick: I’m working on it.

Summer: She needs a job.

Nick: Yeah. Sure. What? You want me to offer her a job?

Summer: Well, she was gonna have a job at your company when adam was involved. So, I thought that yes, maybe there could still be a place for her there. After you’re done being angry.

Nick: She could go bankrupt before that happens.

Summer: Dad, seriously. She needs a job, not just for the income, but for something for her to focus on. You and i both know that she is such a hard worker and she can do basically anything she sets her mind to.

Nick: What, are you getting a cut, like, 10%?

Summer: [ Laughs ] Okay, fine, call it a favor to me, or just call it a smart business decision. But I know that there’s got to be something for her at your company.

Nick: Oh, man, uh, yeah, I guess, I could see the logic of her working with us when adam suggested it, but summer, I don’t know. I’ll talk to sharon. I’m not making you any promises.

Summer: Thank you.

Nick: You’re welcome.

Summer: So, how are things between you and sharon? I mean, with the launch of the new company and all.

Nick: I know what you meant. We are– we’re good. We’ve settled into a nice working relationship.

Summer: Good. I’m happy for you, dad. And, I– I really hope things work out for both of you.

Phyllis: Uh, yeah, we’re finished here, there’s nothing more to discuss.

Tucker: Not even your daughter?

Phyllis: My daughter has no part in this.

Tucker: Well, in this, that’s right, that’s right. But she is eventually, going to need a job, is she not?

Phyllis: She has a job.

Tucker: What do you mean? Marchetti? Here’s the thing about that. Uh… [ Clears throat ] When I take over jabot, and I will take over jabot, make no mistake, I’m gonna streamline it, I’m gonna get back to basics, you know. The cosmetics and scents and all that crap. I just don’t see a place for fashion.

Phyllis: You’re not gonna do that.

Tucker: Watch me.

Phyllis: I’m gonna warn jack. I’m gonna tell him everything you’ve done.

Tucker: No, you won’t, ’cause you know all the dominoes that would fall if you did. You know your role in this little operation. If I go down, you go down. And considering your recent history with the law, your downfall might be a little more permanent.

Phyllis: Wow. You think you have it all worked out, don’t you?

Tucker: You’re good at the game phyllis, but I’m better. You watch your step from now on. And I would not make any threats you can’t back up. And by the way, the money I transferred will not include your 20% aggravation fee. You should consider yourself lucky I’m not charging you the same fee, for all the aggravation you’ve caused me.

Audra: Tucker was just getting my feedback on an idea he’s developing.

Nikki: Oh, I hope you’re not going to tell me it’s media related.

Audra: No, god, no. You know, he’s thinking about getting back in the music business, but, uh, all the money’s in touring, so I’m not really seeing the upside.

Nikki: Ah. You know, I like you, audra, I really do. You’re smart, you’re talented, you’re cool under pressure. I mean, you could have quite the career.

Audra: Thank you, nikki. You know, I really enjoy working with you too. I’m learning so much, but I just– I don’t like to feel crowded or controlled.

Nikki: Well, I’m sorry, you see it that way. Another way of looking at it would be that I want to become your new mentor.

Audra: I guess I hadn’t really thought of it that way.

Nikki: Your goals are ahead of you, but you’ll never achieve them if you keep looking back.

[ Phone chiming ]

Diane: What is it?

Jack: It’s an alert from our financial team. The funds have now been moved from the dormant account to another.

Billy: They say whose it is?

Jack: Just what the account number was.

Diane: What? Who could be doing this?

Billy: This is phyllis.

Diane: Why do you think that?

Billy: Because I saw her and tucker together earlier, I could tell something was going on. This is what it is.

Diane: How would she even know how to do that?

Billy: Oh, it’s phyllis. She’s many things, one of them being a genius at hacking computers and she needs the cash flow right now.

Jack: Billy is right.

Billy: I’d bet my life on it. Phyllis and tucker are working together to come after us. And I have a feeling this is only the first shot.

[ Phone ringing ]

Tucker: Hey, leanna, thanks for calling me back.

Leanna: Is this the famous tucker mccall?

Tucker: How you doing? How you been?

[ Leanna chuckling ]

Leanna: I’m good. I’d be a whole lot better though if you gave me the real scoop on what’s going on between you and ashley abbott.

Tucker: [ Laughs ] Well, we’re working things out.

Leanna: Ha, ha. Famous last words.

Tucker: Mm, I did hear an interesting rumor about another member of the abbott family, billy.

Leanna: Oh, really? I’m all ears.

Phyllis: Okay, so, I– I don’t owe any money, you got the transfer. So, I owe nothing, I don’t owe the insurance company anything? I’m good? Okay. Thank you.

Danny: You look like you just lost your best friend.

THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

ta-da!

[ Both chuckle ]

[ Gasps ] Oh, my gosh. So… …what do you think? I think… …it’s perfect. It’s hard to believe that we had to leave port charles just to come all the way down to nyc to spend some quality time together. Not that I’m complaining. Neither am I. Stop right there, partner! Unless you’re lookin’ for trouble.

[ Water sprays ]

[ Gasps ]

[ Laughter ] Gotcha! Not for long! You can’t get me here!

[ Gasps ] Aah!

[ Laughter ]

[ Water sprays ] Hey, joss. What’s going…on?

[ Laughter ] You must have pulled some serious strings to get a visit at this hour. The warden owes me one. I hope you’ve come to give me good news about drew cain.

[ Monitor beeping ]

[ Sighs ] I love you, carly. I love you, too. So much. I’m gonna get you out of pentonville. I have to. Hey. Dr. Montague. Thanks for coming in on such short notice. Well, not a problem at all. Anything I can do to assist. Yeah. We just need to get to the bottom of a few things. I’m happy to help. Great. Follow me right in here. I’ll take your statement.

[ Door closes ] New intake.

[ Police radio chatter ] Uh, I will be recording this, just so you know. Would you like some water? Oh, no, thank you. Go on, dante. Get him. Well, gladys, will you do it? Will you confess and testify against dr. Montague? Please, sasha. If this comes out, sonny will kill me, literally. Like dr. Montague was planning to kill me? But I-I-I didn’t know he was gonna do that. I never wanted to hurt you! No. No, no, no. No. You just wanted me to be locked up and drugged so you could steal my money. Sasha. No. That is not how it was at all. I got in a jam. Things got out of control. You’ve got to believe me. I would never, never agree to that! I love you! Then prove it! Confess and help me put away dr. Montague for good! 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. Dr. Z!We love your skincare videos. Thanks! My daughter has sensitive skin. Same. Try using all free clear as part of your family’s laundry routine. It tackles impurities without leaving irritating residue for a clean that’s gentle on skin. All free clear. The number one doctor recommended brand for sensitive skin. Okay. Okay. I’m gonna run and pick up the tickets, okay? What? Yeah, I just have an errand to run, and then I’m gonna check on a few of those surprises that I have planned. You’re gonna abandon me? No. No, not at all. I just thought that it might be nice for you to decompress a little bit after the flight. Okay. Yeah. That — that works for me. Okay. But hurry back. Yeah, I am. Of course. It’s not gonna take long. I’ll see you soon, okay? Okay.

[ Door closes ]

[ Sighs ]

[ Chuckles softly ] Hey, mom, it’s me. We just made it to nyc safe and sound. Tell curtis and marshall I said hey. And I’ll talk to you tomorrow. Okay? Bye. Love you. Mommy, we got you! You did! It’s like the O.K. Corral in here, huh?

[ Chuckles ] Here. Thank you. Um, girls, I think we’re gonna have dinner soon. Why don’t you two cowgirls go upstairs and wash up, hm? Girls: Okay. Come on, avery. We’ll ride our horsies upstairs.

[ Laughter ] So, uh… what brings you by? I just wanted to say good night to avery. Yeah. I know that your mom is at the hospital with drew. I just came from there. Oh, yeah. That’s why I’m here holding down the fort. Um, is there any news? Is drew awake? No, not yet, but he’s out of surgery, and the doctors seem very confident that everything went well. That’s so good to hear. Thank you. Yeah. Of course. We’re all worried. Drew doesn’t deserve this. I owe him so much for everything he did to bring trina home. She really means a lot to you, huh? She’s like a daughter. You know, you’ve really done a lot for trina, getting her that internship at the chuck. You’ve taught her pretty much everything she knows about the gallery and the art world. I think that she’s really lucky to have you in her life. I know that she really appreciates you. I appreciate her, too. Okay, well, I better go up and be sure those girls and their horsies aren’t getting into any mischief.

[ Laughs ] Isn’t it a risk, us meeting here? I mean, we’ve been so careful. Relax, mason. The cats are asleep. I’m not worried about the prisoners, cyrus. But the warden? The warden is busy with drew cain. Alright. So tell me what you’ve heard about my friend. Nothing. All austin could find out was that cain was in surgery and… it wasn’t looking good. There are those of us who become casualties in god’s grand scheme. But when you choose the side of the devil, you willingly stake your life on a losing hand.

[ Door opens ] Oh. I’m sorry, ms. Spencer. I didn’t know you were still here. Oh. I-I, um… I wanted to stay until he woke up, you know?

[ Monitor beeping ] He looks so vulnerable hooked up to all this. He’s been through a lot. We have to monitor him closely. After the trauma he experienced and the surgery, he’s likely to be out for the night. Let me know if you need anything. Oh. Um, the doctor said the surgery was a success. Yes. He’s very lucky. Could there be complications at this stage? Try not to worry. How is he? Really. I mean, how is he?

[ Weakly ] He’s doing pretty good.

[ Groans ] Better because

you’re here. Hey. Warden, you really didn’t need to come all this way just to visit drew. I would have been happy to report his condition. Not at all, jordan. This attack should have never happened. I pride myself on the security at pentonville, and this was a major fail. I had to make sure for myself that mr. Cain was okay. You’ve brought so many reforms to the prison. It’s impressive. But we can’t rest on any laurels. Something brutal like this means we have a lot more work to do. I’m eager to see if mr. Cain can shed any light. It’s certainly suspicious, though. The severity and duration of the attack suggest there might have been some coordination between prisoners and guards. Dr. Montague, thank you for coming in. We want to get to the bottom of this. As I’ve told your detective, I’m glad to assist and help recover ms. Gilmore. She’s at risk out on her own.

[ Beep ] This is dr. Damon montague’s statement on the assault by cody bell and the events that happened at ferncliff. Well, um, I found cody bell in one of my patients’ rooms, and he attacked me. Attacked you why? I was making my rounds, and I heard some animated voices coming from a room. When I opened up the door to check it out, cody bell went crazy and he jumped me. So why didn’t you call security before you entered the room? It was a room for one of my troubled patients. Sasha gilmore’S. Yes. Yes, she’s very vulnerable, and I was afraid for her life. I’ve been treating her for some time, and, frankly, I’m quite shocked with how much she’s declined since the stabbing episode. And you think cody bell is the one who attacked you? Yes, he jumped me, and we fought. But mr. Bell was crazed, and he knocked me out. When I came to, I was in the bathroom, tied up, and he had taken my clothes. When cody was arrested, he was wearing the clothes you say he stole from you. And in the pocket, we found these. Can you explain those? H-how — how can I prove it? I-I didn’t know what montague was planning to do! But you knew him from your card games. You got him to give me pills that messed with the antidepressants I was already taking. You and dr. Montague did that to make me look unstable so that you could keep the guardianship going. I was desperate. I am so sorry. Well, if you’re really sorry, then there’s only one choice. Help me put an end to dr. Montague. He has to be stopped. Okay. Okay. I will do whatever you want.

[ Sighs ] You will? I will go to the police, tell them everything dr. Montague did. Okay. Well, I have to wait here. But this is your last chance, gladys. I am trusting you. Of course. Of course. I won’t — I won’t let you down. I feel so terrible. Hey, hey. Make sure to not tell anyone that you saw me, okay? This has to come from you speaking from your own conscience. Okay?

[ Sighs, sniffles ] Hello. I have information about an escaped fugitive.


So, dr. Montague… what do you have to say about these pills? I have never seen those before in my life. But it makes sense. How so? Well, it appeared that sasha was getting drugs from inside ferncliff. Maybe cody was her dealer.

[ Sighing ] Alright. Well, uh, that definitely does help us clarify some things, dr. Montague. Thanks for your cooperation. We may need to speak to you again. I’m at your disposal. Okay. We’ll be in touch. Oh, no, no, no. H-hold on. Y-you’re letting him go?!

[ Grunts ]

[ Knock on door ] Gladys?

[ Knock on door ] Sasha gilmore? No. No. No. Please remain calm. We are only here to escort you back to ferncliff. No, no, no, no! I can’t go back there! Please. Please. You’re making a mistake. I cannot go back to ferncliff. Please. Please.

[ Gasps ] Gladys. Why? Why, gladys?! Why?! You’re awake. Oh, my god. I’m sorry. I’m so sorry. No. I’m sorry. No. Come back. Get over here.

[ Laughs ] Welcome back, mr. Cain. How are you feeling? Uh…good. I mean…I’m here. Okay, but you’ve been through a rough surgery. You have to be very careful not to exert yourself too much.

[ Exhales heavily ] Yes, ma’am. I’ll let the doctor know you’re awake. If you need any help with pain management, just buzz me. Make sure he doesn’t overdo it? Oh. I will.

[ Monitor beeping ] Hey. I’m so glad you’re awake. It was so hard w-watching you lay here like this. I’m so sorry. It’s okay. It’s okay. It’s not okay. You were only in pentonville because of me. Carly, come on. You’re not to blame. I’m fine. How can you say that? You were only attacked because of me. And sonny.

[ Beeping continues ] Warden garten: You think there could have been collusion between prisoners and my staff at pentonville? It’s certainly suspicious. Drew’s injuries indicate a lengthy fight. I’d like an investigation into who was on duty during the attack.

[ Elevator bell chimes ]

[ Cellphone ringing ] Ready to help me? Put that over there. Donna. Okay, sweetheart. I have to take this. Yeah. In. Nice job. Trina! What are you doing? Where’s spencer? He went to go pick up the tickets for the theater. But we’re here! Look at this place!

Oh, my god. It’s amazing.

[ Chuckles ] Okay. Wait. Tell me everything. How was the flight? I’m assuming you flew first-class.

Joss. Oh, come on. Enjoy it.

[ Sighs ] Okay. It was amazing. Spencer has this special key, which meant that we get to board first.

And they treated us

like royalty. They gave us these heated nuts, and then they gave us little mints and fresh-baked cookies when we landed. Was there a driver waiting for you? With the sign — “cassadine.” And the driver took us directly to the car, and we didn’t have to wait for the luggage.

Wow.

Say what you want

about spencer, but that guy’s got game. Yeah, he really does.

So…? So, what? So, are you excited? I mean, this is huge! You and spencer haven’t really been able to explore your relationship since greenland. I mean, tonight’s the night. Josslyn!

Trina, it’s your first time with spencer. Okay? How are you feeling? I mean, I know that you’ve thought about it. You still feel ready? Absolutely.

[ Sighs ] I’ve been ready for a while now, and we’re never alone. Well, you’re alone now. Yeah, we are. I feel really good about spencer. We’re in a really great place right now. I’m so happy for you!

Okay. Go. Go. Get ready for your night.

But call me later

with every detail.

Maybe not all

of the details. Just know that I’m here for you, okay, no matter what.

Okay. Oh, is that ava? Is she there with you? Yes, she — she came by to say hi to avery. Um, listen. Have a great night. You know it. Tell ava I said hey. Okay. I will. Love you. Love you more.

[ Breathes deeply ]

[ Door opens ] Okay! We are all…set. I picked up the tickets, and everything else is running on schedule. “Everything else”? Mm-hmm. What else do you have in store for us? Oh, you’ll see.


Well, don’t keep me in suspense. I could tell you, but then it would ruin the surprise, so… mm. Okay. Well, don’t ruin the surprise. No, I’m not going to. That would take all of the fun out of this. But I’ll tell you what. We are in the capital of the western world, so what would you like to do? What would I like to do?

[ Sighs ] Everything! Uh, I want to see soho. There’s a couple of galleries that we deal with there. Then I want to go shopping, I want to go eat, and then I really want to see the big four. Oh, the big four? Yeah. Moma, guggenheim, whitney, and the met.

[ Sighs ] I am so glad that you said that. What? Why do you have that smile? I thought we weren’t ruining surprises. You didn’t say it had something to do with a museum. Okay, okay. I’ll tell you.

[ Both chuckle ]

[ Knock on door ] Oh. Saved by the bell.

[ Chuckles ] Cody! Cody! Get off! This isn’t helping! Cody! Get off! Let go of him! Get off me! Okay. Okay. Sorry. Sorry about this. Alright? Dante, you can’t let him walk! Hey! Take him to his cell. -Mac! Mac! -Man, no, we can’t — sasha? What are you doing? You have to be careful. Carly. You are not to blame, okay? It was — it was my choice to help sonny. It’s not your responsibility to fight sonny’s battles. It’s not just sonny’s battles. It’s other injustices, too. But you don’t have to fix everyone’s problems. Look at you. You know that I can’t stand by and I can’t watch all that stuff happen. The — the drug problem itself is heartbreaking enough, okay? If I can help root out the corruption, I am going… to do it every time.

[ Door opens ] Drew. You’re awake. Drew: Mm. You had us so worried. Aw. Thank you, jordan. How you feeling? I’m sore, but I-I’ll be okay. Warden, I’m kind of surprised to see you here. Warden? How the hell could you let this happen to drew? What kind of prison are you running?! I sent you with a message to my nephew’s ex-wife, mason. It’s been more than a handful of days. So, what was the dear lady’s response? Um, well, she’s not the one that we have to worry about. Betty’s the problem. What are these?! Um, t-those are chopsticks. You eat with them. Chopsticks!

[ Laughs ] Thank you for getting the delivery. Oh. Yeah. Of course. So, h-how was trina? Oh, I mean, she’s great. She says hi, by the way. Her and spencer made it to new york. Mm. That’s great. I hope she has the time of her life. I’m sure she will. Well, joss, thank you for being here with avery. I know things haven’t been easy. I-I’ll get out of your hair. Ava, we have way too much food for three people. Would you like to stay for dinner? Well, I would like that very much. Thank you. Okay, cowgirls! I think we need some more chopsticks ’cause I’m staying for dinner! Hooray! Yay!

[ Cork pops ] Champagne? Yes, please. There you are. And we’re done.Hm, what about these? Looks right.


You’re supposed to be protecting the inmates! Carly. Warden garten’s on the same page as us about getting justice for drew. She’s here to help us brainstorm on how we can reopen the case and maybe get it before another judge. Sorry. I — I am really upset about all this. I understand perfectly. And, mr. Cain, I owe you a deep apology. The warden wants to drew out of pentonville just as much as we do. I’m just as upset as you are, miss spencer. Drew ending up in a hospital bed was never the outcome I wanted for him. I feel terrible. And I wanted to see if you could shed any light on the situation. The only important thing is to get drew out of pentonville. I couldn’t agree more. Listen. I’m — I’m sorry, boss. I really thought we could trust betty. She may have gotten too cocky and let down her guard and showed corinthos her cards. Is that what you think happened? Well, it’s possible she turned on us. You know, sonny’s a very powerful figure. Um, and persuasive. So she may have decided to strike a deal with him. Sasha! What happened?! Gladys! What did you do to her?! Dante, you better see to getting miss gilmore back to ferncliff. No! No! I can’t go back there! Please. Mac. Mac. Hold on. Dante, don’t do it. Make sure nothing happens. They’re expecting her. You can’t take her back there! Dante, please. Ferncliff? Sasha, it’s okay. It’s just for a little bit just so we can sort this out. No! No! Please, dante! Sasha. Sasha. It’ll be okay. I will get you out of there somehow! Um, listen. Would you mind waiting? Um, I need to take cody back to processing, and then I’ll be back to follow up with you. Thank you for calling and letting us know sasha’s whereabouts. I was just trying to help my poor daughter-in-law. Mac, do not trust her. She’s behind all of this. Please. Please. Cody, let’s go. Come on. -Mac, I’m telling you. -Let’s go! You have to look more into what gladys is doing! Mac: Go! Oh, my gosh. Look at all of this. Is that really caviar?

[ Chuckles ] I know it’s a little bit cheesy, but I just couldn’t resist. I figured, why not go all-out? Well, let’s go.

[ Chuckles ] I’m really happy that you were able to come along this weekend. I know you’re really busy right now, what with school starting and finishing that paper. Which I finished, no thanks to you. Well, I can’t help wanting to spend all of my free time with you. And I’m really glad that ava was able to give you some time off from your duties at the gallery. Yeah. Of course. I mean, it’s no trip to turks and caicos like you wanted during hurricane season, when probably we would have been stranded on some island for some weeks before we got rescued. So you discovered my master plan — being marooned, just the two of us, on an island. Mm. Well, when you put it like that, it does kind of sound nice. Just the two of us. I am sorry that it’s taken us so long for us to have some alone time with each other. It’s okay. No, it’s not. I just had to be sure that esme wasn’t going to run away with my little brother. But I’m glad that she turned out to be dependable. Did we come all this way just to talk about esme?

[ Chuckles ] No. No, of course we didn’T.


We do have a dinner reservation to get to. Hm. Yeah. Okay, well, let’s get to it.

[ Chuckles ] We don’t have to go so fast. We haven’t even done a proper toast yet. Then let’s do a toast. To the woman I love. To us. To us. Okay. Okay.

[ Clears throat ] Dinner. A quick shower.

[ Door closes ] Rest assured diane and I are exploring all legal loopholes and case precedents. We’re doing everything we can. Thank you, jordan. I know you’re really going above and beyond. No, drew. We’re just doing what has to be done. You shouldn’t be in pentonville, and we’re gonna solve this problem and get you out. -Thank you. -We’re in this together. Warden, I’m sorry that I can’t tell you anything helpful about the fight. The attack! You were attacked! Don’t worry about that, drew. You just focus on your healing. And I’ll see you soon. Or hopefully not. Okay. Wait a second. Isn’t there something we can do to make sure drew doesn’t go back to pentonville? Some kind of medical exemption? We’re looking into that. Don’t worry, miss spencer. We will do everything we can to make sure nothing like this happens again. You have my word. Thank you. Carly: Okay. That’s good. You know? I mean, thank god we’re not in this alone. Hopefully diane and jordan — they can come up with some kind of a miracle, right? Hey. What? Come sit with me. Please? Okay. We’re alone. Together. No talking about prison or trials or any of that. Just — just…

[ Groans ] Just the two of us. God. I mean, I was so worried, dex. Why was drew a target for such a brutal beating in the first place? I mean, thank god he’s awake.

[ Clears throat ] I — um, I got to go. I’ll call you in a little. The girls are all washed up, ready for bed. Okay. The playroom is still a bit of a mess, though. Oh, well. That’s nothing new. And they’re waiting for the bedtime story that you promised. Okay. So is there any — any word about drew? Yes. My mom called. He’s awake. Well, that’s a relief. Drew shouldn’t have gone to prison in the first place. I mean, who the hell tipped off the sec? They could have gotten him killed. You okay, gladys? How can I be? Thanks to you, my daughter-in-law has completely lost touch with reality! Yes, it is really sad. But she’s gonna be taken care of in ferncliff. I’m gonna see to it personally. No! No, dante, please. Sasha. We’re gonna get you out of here, okay? I promise you that. No. Please. I-I don’t belong here. Okay? I-I-I shouldn’t be — no, no, no! Orderly: This is for your own good. Come on. Is that really necessary? Hey, it’s part of the intake order. Please, please, dante. Do something. Look. It’s best that you leave. Sasha, we’re gonna get you out. We’re gonna get you out. Okay? I promise you that!


[ Exhales heavily ] Wow. Trina. Oh, my goodness. You look amazing. You don’t look so bad yourself, mr. Cassadine.

[ Chuckling ] No, no, no. This is one battle you’re not gonna win. Trina, you are breathtaking. Can I help you with your necklace? Necklace? Oh, my gosh. Spencer. It’s beautiful. May I? I wanted you to have something permanent. That way, you would always be able to remember our weekend together. Ohh. Perfect. Okay. Dinner awaits. Let’s go to dinner. You think it’s possible that betty was unable to fool corinthos and instead chose to join forces? It’s possible. No, it’s not possible. And you’re an idiot for thinking that. It was an easy job. Betty had no reason to betray me. Sonny accepted her too quickly. Which means ava’s the one who did it. And for that sin, she’ll have to face divine retribution. Oh. But what about cassadine? He — he was very clear about not hurting her. I don’t care what my nephew said. He’s not the one running the show. I am! Get it done!

[ Door slams ] I’m glad to hear that drew’s awake. Well, I’m glad that you came tonight. I think it made things much more normal for the girls. You know, joss, I couldn’t help but hear that you were on your phone with dex. H-how is it having a boyfriend working for sonny? Why do you ask? You may not remember, but I am the daughter of a man whose business dealings weren’t always… “inside” the law. We probably have more in common than you think. And if you really want to know why I want to know, it’s because you’re trina’s best friend. And what affects her matters to me. And I want to be sure that you’re taking care of yourself, that you’ve got your eyes open wide. Because you will need crystal clarity to navigate a relationship with someone in the business. Well, the girls were hoping for “hoppity moppity kuddly kangaroo.” Okay. Take care, joss. You too.

[ Door opens and closes ] Oh, hey, nina. It’s me. I just found out that — that drew woke up. So you won’t have his death on your conscience. I hope if anything good comes out of all of this, it’s that we can finally get justice for drew and push for a retrial. Drew doesn’t belong in pentonville. I’ll help in any way I can to ensure an early release. Thank you, jordan. Mac, you can’t let sasha stay at ferncliff. Dr. Montague — dr. Montague isn’t gonna do anything to sasha. She is not safe there. It’s only for a little while. We’ll get sasha out but going through the proper channels. Mac. Don’t worry. We’re doing everything we can. Let’s go.

THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

Madam Mayor, DHS. What a surprise. That’s good job. You’re working late. I need to talk with you. Well, I’m actually glad you stopped in. I haven’t had a chance to congratulate you personally since your appointment as mayor. I got your email. I want you to know how happy I am to be working for you. I think you were an inspired choice to fill your husband’s position.

And I want you to know that I am your humble. Are you done? I guess so. Good. Cause you’re fired.

Hey. I

thought you were the man from Foo Walks In. I’m sorry to disappoint. I ordered some dim sum. It should be here any minute. Are you going somewhere? Yeah, here. Here? We’re still moving in together, right?

There you are. Sorry I’m late. I assume I missed dinner. Yes, you did. But, Cook is keeping a plate warm for you. Oh, lovely. But, I could use a drink first. Tough day? Tedious. I was sorting through resumes. What position? Head of IT. What about Wendy Shin? Oh, I fired her. What? Why? You were there the day that she stopped by with that report she wanted me to read.

Yeah, I remember. Well, I caught her trying to get the goods on me. Get the goods on you? What do you mean? Why would she do that? To prove that I hired a hit on Eva Vitale.

Susan was really married to a guy named Edmund Phineas Crumb, huh? Looks like it. Look, I’m, uh, I’m new to this whole, uh, supernatural thing, okay, but, but the crumbs did come off the scone into the shape of a knee, and it’s pointing right at this guy right here. Crumb. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. Listen. You know that I am desperate for anything to get EJ off of my back, but come on, how’s that gonna help us?

Huh? That article is from way, way back when. I mean, even if this crumb is still alive and around. What does he have to do with Susan escaping an exploding car back in Salem? I don’t know, but it’s worth looking into. Yeah, I guess. I guess, since he definitely has a connection to her. But is he gonna be able to tell us whether she’s alive or dead?

Oh

no! Like sand through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.

You’re firing me? Damn right I am. See? See, I’m sure you’re aware, D. A. is not an elected position. Now, you serve at the pleasure of the Queen, and she is not a muse. But, Mayor Price, I mean, regardless of your personal feelings about me, you know how much, how hard I’ve worked for this town. I have devoted myself completely to my job.

It is my life! This is not about job performance, Miss Trask. I just don’t like you, and why the hell should I? Considering all the time that you’ve spent being Sloane Peterson’s errand girl, making life miserable for my daughter and me for weeks, arresting Chanel and me at my husband’s election day celebration.

Shirley, you can understand that at the time I felt that It’s what I needed to do. A Sloan presented me with what I believed was evidence of your guilt. Oh, well, you had the choice of how and when to make that damn arrest. Okay, look, I know you and Mr. Carver were very upset. Upset?! We were horrified and mortified, but you, you were having yourself a rip roaring time, weren’t you?

That night was fun for you! Look, I I may have acted a bit overzealous and and hasty, but I A BIT?! But that is exactly how you are reacting right now! Overzealous and hasty in your decision to let me go. And and and I’m telling you, it is a mistake, Mayor Price. It’s to to get rid of me when I have something I can offer you.

Something you can offer me? And what exactly is that? A high profile conviction. Now I’m sure you are aware of your precarious position right now as mayor. And your husband’s intervention may have put you in this office, but you are going to have to run on your own merits in a short amount of time. Now, we both know that Clint Rawlings is gunning for your job.

And I don’t have to tell you that he’s going to campaign on any of your perceived missteps. Now, I am sure that you don’t want to risk giving him that kind of ammunition, huh?

I guess closing a high profile case… Wouldn’t be the worst idea. Who’s conviction do you have in mind? I

mean, you know I want you to move in, I just… I didn’t think it’d be tonight. Didn’t really give me any notice. Sorry about that, it’s just… You know, it just hit me that I need to give my dad a few extra days to find a new tenant before the end of the month. And I got to packing and, you know, loading the car and…

No, it’s just, it’s okay. You don’t have to explain. Really, just… What? Honestly? Yeah. I just didn’t expect a former priest to be so eager to live in sin. Well, considering that I was, um, kicked out of the priesthood for performing an exorcism cohabitating as small potatoes. That’s a good point. Yeah, besides, we won’t be living in sin for very long.

We are engaged to be married. My wife to be. Oh, yes, we are. Question is, for how long? When are we tying the knot? Has been to be.

Wait, so Wendy figured out that you sent that hip woman after Ava? But how? Trip Johnson must have put the idea in your head. He and Wendy are an item now. And that young man seems to adore his gangster mother. He must have convinced Wendy to do his dirty work. By getting the goods on you. Right, so she had the temerity to try and hack into my phone, which I caught her doing.

Grounds for dismissal, don’t you think? Absolutely. But she didn’t, she didn’t get anything on you, did she? I was way ahead of her. I purposely left my phone behind so I could catch her in the act, which I did, and then I gave her the sack, told her to clear out her desk and leave immediately. Yeah, come to think of it.

Hmm, what is it? I should have had security escort her out, because God only knows what else she could have gotten into while she was walking through the building, but I was, I was distracted by something she said. Okay, what did she say? She said that my mother was still alive.

What is taking so long? How many Edmund P. Crumbs can there be in London? Uh, there’s none, so far. Not a single one? No, because this internet is so dang slow. Okay. Harris, even if Susan was married to this guy, what’s to say they have any connection now? I don’t know. Maybe she was desperate and went to him for help.

All the way here in London? Ava, this guy is our only lead. We need to track him down. Finally. What? I got a hit. Yeah? There is one Edmund Crumb in London. And his address is right here. Great. Let’s get that phone back to the waiter and then get out of here. Okay. Lee Shin.

I’d say that’s a pretty big fish, wouldn’t you? Depends what you’ve got on him. Well, uh, Mayor Price, I’m sure you’re aware, he tried to have Stefan DiMera killed, and yet, he is still walking around free. Because there wasn’t enough evidence to convict him. But there will be, very soon. You see, I’ve been working on him.

And once he’s lulled into a false sense of security, It’s just a matter of time before he confesses. And, uh, well, uh, how exactly are you working on him? Oh, you know, never mind. Never mind. I can get it. Please don’t look at me like that. Surely you’ve used your feminine wiles on occasion to get what you want.

Just, you know, but let’s just stay on topic, okay, Ms. Drafts? Now, just how long is it going to take before this, this unsuspecting fool is lulled to a fare thee well and confesses to his crime? Actually, I, I’m having dinner with him tonight in the square. Tonight? Tonight. And, oh, he is, is ready to crack. And when he does, I promise you, I am going to nail Lee Shin to the wall.

But if you’re, if you’re playing him, how do you know that this confession will stick? I’ve read the law. I know what I’m doing. Uh huh. Yeah, well, you better. Otherwise, you’re out.

Hey, Lee? It’s me, Melinda. Would you like to have dinner with me tonight?

I’m sorry, I just haven’t really given much thought to when or where. Wait, what are you thinking? Uh, well, I’m definitely not having the wedding at the pub, because I will not be married in a place that smells like chowder. My brother and his new wife didn’t have a problem. What does that mean? Rex and Sarah got married there today.

What? And your fiancĂ© wasn’t invited? I wasn’t either. You’re kidding. Are you and your brother on the outs? No, Rex and I are good. It’s just… It’s just that Sarah and I have a history. Oh. One of your exes. Something like that. Listen, you… You don’t have to worry. I won’t insist on us getting married at the pub.

Alright? Because I don’t want to either. And why is that?

Well, because I’ve already… Had a wedding there? Let me guess, uh, Nicole? Yeah, with Nicole.

Wait, so Wendy just blurted out that your mother’s still alive? Of all the Hail Mary passes she could have thrown to keep her job, I never saw that one coming. Well, she couldn’t have just come up with that idea on the spot, so why would she say that? Where would she have gotten that from? If I were to hazard a guess, I would say she got it from Ava.

But Ava was in the car with Susan, so she knows what happened. Apparently, she now claims that she suddenly remembered that my mother stumbled clear of the car before it exploded. Ava has stated unequivocally that my mother didn’t die that night. Well, I’m… That’s amazing news, right? Mm. It would be if it were true.

You don’t believe it? Uh, for a minute. Ava obviously came up with that lie in a desperate attempt to save her own skin.

So, uh, this is it, huh? Yeah. Room 17, according to the search results. This is Edmund Crumb’s current address. Okay, well, uh, here goes nothing.

At his age, I doubt that he’s out clubbing. He’s probably asleep, so… Should we get another? Yeah. We got another job. Why are you ringing the bell in the middle of the bloody night? Um, sir, we are sorry to disturb you. Yeah, and we wouldn’t have, except this is quite urgent. Um, are you Edmund Crum? Yes, Edmund P.

Crum, that’s me. How may I help you? Well, we certainly hope you can help us. Yeah, we were hoping to talk to you about a woman named… Susan Banks.

Hey. Ooh. You read my mind. I think I’ve gotten to know you quite well. Cheers.

Uh, I, uh, hope I didn’t keep you waiting too long. Oh, just long enough for me to order us both drinks. I have to admit I was, uh, kind of surprised to get your call. What’s the occasion? Does there have to be an occasion? I’ve missed you. You’ve been on my mind.

A lot. Oh,

really? Really. I keep thinking back on all the good times that we’ve had together. How no one has ever turned me on the way you do. Ever made me feel so, um, alive. And not just sexually. I, I, well, I love hanging out with you and I don’t want to jinx anything, but I guess I’m just trying to tell you how happy I am that we’re seeing each other.

And this is where you say you are too.

Actually, um, I was thinking we should call the whole thing off. What? Why? I thought everything was going so well. Yeah, I thought it was too. And then, I heard this. I am going to nail Li Xin to the wall.

Kate? Hi. Hey. Just looking at a picture of baby Victoria. Rick sent me a few photos before we knew the truth.

I’m so sorry. I know how much you and Romano were looking forward to a new grandbaby. We, we really were looking forward to it. For the extent of the deception. Anyway, did you come by for some chatter? Oh no. I was on my way home. I just thought I’d stop and check on Eric. Is he around? Oh, uh, I don’t, he must not have told you he’s, uh, well, he doesn’t live here anymore.

He moved out. Oh.

That’s right. I forgot you and Nicole had gotten married at the pub. I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have brought it up. No, it’s okay. You were just explaining to me why you thought you and I shouldn’t get married at the pub and now I understand. Yeah. Yeah. And aside from my aversion to the smell of clam chowder, I sure as hell am not going to get married anywhere where you have already gotten married.

So. I didn’t think so. But wherever we do decide to do our numbskulls, we probably should not wait too long because, you know, adoption agencies are going to prefer married couples. Right. Yeah. We shouldn’t wait too long. So, is Belle willing to represent us in the adoption? Actually, I don’t think that’s going to be such a good idea.

Yes, I heard the news about Dear Susan. Such a senseless tragedy. They said on the telly that some deranged woman drove off the side of a cliff. Actually, that woman, uh, she was, she was mentally ill. Huh. Regardless of her state of mind, she cost the world a beautiful and gentle soul. Actually, um, that’s the reason we’re here.

We believe that may not be true. Not true. What are you saying? We believe that Susan may have actually gotten out of the car. And, uh, she might be alive. Whatever would give you that idea? Well, um, we think that because the woman who drove Susan off the cliff is now saying that she saw Susan get away before the explosion.

I must admit, Wendy using my mother’s supposed return from the dead as a way to mollify me, it makes a certain amount of sense, but to Ava it’s a no brainer. So you think Ava just made it up to get you to back off? Well, isn’t it obvious? Ava must have found out there was a contract out on her, and suddenly remembers that my mother survived the explosion.

The timing is rather convenient. Yeah. But, don’t you think maybe there’s a chance Ava could be telling the truth? She’s not. How could you be so sure? I am sure because if my mother was still alive, she would have made sure I knew that. Unless… Unless what? Unless your mother was so afraid of Ava that she went into hiding.

Not able to get to a phone, not able to get to you. EJ, what if your mother is still in danger? Can’t you even consider the fact that Ava is telling the truth? Nicole, this is my mother we’re talking about here. She doesn’t require something so mundane as a phone. I mean, she’s on a first name basis with everyone in the spirit world.

Look, if my mother was still alive, she would have found some way to send me a sign.

Hmm. Huh. You were saying?

Where did you get that recording? Remember last week when I showed up at your office? Yeah, and you said you couldn’t wait to get your hands on me and we had sex on my desk? Yeah, I remember. Hmm, yeah, well, I also gave you a cute little teddy bear. Told you he’d tickle you when I was away. No. Yes. There was a bug inside that thing?

Are you tickled now? Shhh. Dammit, how could I be so stupid? You know, I actually asked myself the same question. I was kind of surprised I got away with it. Why’d you do it? What tipped you off? I didn’t need any tipping off. I knew from the beginning you were out to get me. Although I thought I could sweep you off your feet with mine.

Reika’s charm and, um, sexual prowess. But on the off chance I was wrong, I took out a low insurance policy. I can’t believe you played me like this. Amanda, give it up. We played each other. You don’t care about me any more than I care about you. The only reason you’re upset is because you lost. It’s

me, isn’t it? I’m the reason she won’t represent us. She still can’t stand me. No, Song, it’s not that. It’s just… Oh, she’s going through a really hard time in her personal life. And I just think it’s best for all three of us if we… You know, just found another attorney. Okay. Yeah, well… I mean, even if family law were my specialty, you know, I obviously can’t do this by myself.

Of course not. Look, it can’t be that difficult to find an attorney that we both like. I mean, you know what, we can even start working on it tonight if you like. Tonight? Yeah, or we can just make a potential list of lawyers. I mean, yeah, we could, but you just, you haven’t even unpacked yet. Sure. It’s just that I’m excited, I mean, knowing that we both want to adopt and I just can’t wait to get started.

What? What’s up with that look? Oh, it’s just, I was thinking how this was all my idea and, Eric, are you sure this is really what you want? Definitely. I’m sorry, I thought I made this clear to you, Sloan. A child doesn’t need to share my DNA to feel like my own child. And I’m sure you feel the same way, of course you do.

I mean, this was your idea, like you said. Yeah. You know, there’s a kid out there who desperately needs a mom and a dad. And we can be those two people. I mean, like I said, I’ve just always wanted to be a father.

There we go. I’ll dine by a candlelight tonight, that’s better.

That’s it? That’s all you have to say? Well, I know you’ve already eaten, but I thought you wouldn’t mind keeping me company. Hey Jay, this isn’t about dinner. You said if your mom was alive, she would show you a sign and then bam, the lights go out. Oh, come on. What? Come on, if that’s not a sign, okay, then what could it be?

Uh, a faulty circuit breaker, a minor inconvenience. You are her son. You have seen what Susan can do. I have, and she’s not subtle. A sign from her would be a… Sky writer, spelling… Elvis, I’m alive. Or a Ouija board pointing to yes. Well, you’d actually have to get a Ouija board out in order for that to work.

Fine, fine. Then it would be the morning crossword clues being King of Rock and Heywood actress in I Want to Live. But the power going out… No, Nicole, that is not a sign from my mother. It’s… It’s just the power going out. Okay. If you say

so. So, this woman… That caused the crash. It’s saying that she saw my Susan escape before the cars burst into flames. Yes. But didn’t you say this woman was mentally ill? How do we know this is not the ramblings of some deranged person? Well, I, I know this woman and she’s had a lot of treatments. Yes, and, and she recently remembered.

I’ve seen Susan get out of the car just in time. Well, it’s my understanding that this accident happened months ago. And if Susan’s alive, if, where has she been all this time? That’s what we’re trying to find out. Yeah, that’s why we’re here to see you. You think I might have some knowledge of Susan’s whereabouts?

Whatever would give you that idea?

Well, um, recently, it’s, it’s, well, it’s kind of a long story, but we, we feel like Susan’s been trying to reach out to us. It’s what actually brought us to London in the first place. And then today we got another clue, um, that was sort of… Crumb related. Yeah, I, look, we did some research and we, uh, discovered that you’d been married to Susan.

Uh, that’s… Really why we’re here. Uh, to see if maybe you have gotten any signs from her at all. Signs? Yeah, I’m sure you remember Susan had some supernatural gifts. And, uh, we were just wondering if maybe you got a, uh, a message? Anything? Messages? No. But then again,

Why would she need to send me messages? When she’s chained up to the floor of the back bedroom.

Hey there.

How’d your dinner go? Not how I planned. Oh. I figured.

Back up to your office. You’re out.

Almost unpacked, and I left you enough hangar space. Oh, that’s great. Something wrong? Oh, Melinda just texted. She got some bad news tonight. I’m sorry to hear that. Yeah, me too. You

two are friends now? Because it wasn’t too long ago that you weren’t. I mean, our rivalry, we tried to leave to the courtroom, and… Plus, since I got to town, I’ve found that female friends are pretty hard to come by, so. Would you mind if I went and checked on her? No, of course not. And I promise I won’t touch the leftover dumplings.

That’s not what I was gonna say.

I’m just really excited about the baby, too. About the adoption process

and… I love you too. I’ll see you soon. Okay.

Um, if there really is a power outage, maybe you should save your battery. This can’t wait. Mirror Enterprises desperately needs an IT department head. By tomorrow? By yesterday, but I’m sure the power will come back on soon. I, I don’t understand. How, how are you being so calm about this? Why get worked up?

There’s nothing we can do until the power company repairs the damage. Oh. Still going to go with the power outage theory, huh? Oh, as opposed to your completely logical hypothesis that it was caused by my deceased mother who might be alive because Wendy Shin said so. No, I’m sure that the lights will come back on any second.

As much as I hate saying I told you so, I told you so. Oh, very mature. See?

You, you, you were just joking. Oh no, Susan’s right in there. I mean, why would you, why would you ever change?

I’m feeling, I’m feeling dizzy.

Me too, hello. What, what, what, what the hell is wrong with me? That would be the poisoned tea.

Poisoned tea? What? Oh, no, no. Oh, no, no. Oh, God.

He passed you?

That takes care of that.

Hey, Lee. You there? I just want to let you know something. You know, I finally figured out why Gabby Hernandez dumped you. It’s because as a lover, you suck! And I don’t mean that in a good way.

Ask

how you’re doing, but I got a pretty good idea. Coffee? I can’t believe we dumped him. Damn! Damn! Damn! I hate that creep! God, did he give you a reason? Yeah, a good one, actually. I found out I was only dating him because I wanted to make a case against him. Yeah, I mean, that’s kind of a good one. Yeah, and because I failed to make said case, Mayor Price just fired me.

What? Why? Because she hates me. And because it is entirely in the authority of her as mayor.

What are you thinking? Oh, it’s just that, um… This kind of works out for me. Well, as long as you’re happy. No, it works out for you too. How so? Well, I mean, you’re in need of a job, and I’m in need of an attorney. No, I’m serious. How would you like to help Eric and I adopt a baby?

Mom! Hey! Hi! Thank you. So, so this is your new home? It is. How’d you know where to find me? Well, I stopped by the pub to see you and Kate said that you had moved in here. Yeah, I did. I’m, I’m sorry that I didn’t tell you myself that I was moving in. It’s just, I got so busy and… He was quite all right. I understand.

I was just, well, I was surprised, I guess. I know that you and Sloane were serious. I didn’t know that you were this serious. Yeah, we are. And we love each other, and we’re compatible. And it just seemed like the logical next step for us. Well, you know that I’m happy if you’re happy. I am. And you know as well as I know that I’ve gone through a really rough patch recently.

But I think I’ve made the turn around the corner, you know? And Slo and I, you know, committed to each other and I… I think that I’m ready. You know.

I hope it works. Yeah. Me too.

Yes. Yes, thank you very much. That, that explains it. A car ran into a utility pole and knocked out the power in the area. The uh, electric company just… Finished repairing the damage. So, I think you would agree that the only sign here is that the drivers in this neighborhood need to keep their eyes on the road.

Okay, this neighborhood is made up of this mansion and the acres of grounds around it. You think the dorkers at the power company were having me on?

The only liar in this scenario… is Ava Vitaly. And may she soon rot in hell for all eternity, so that my mother may finally rest in peace.

Hey, what do you mean? What the heck do you think you’re doing?

Transcript provided by Suzanne

[ Relaxing music ]

Finn: Thanks, by the way, for going all the way over there and helping steffy and the kids get settled.

Taylor: Of course, that’s what moms do to keep their kids safe. That’s what steffy is doing right now. You know, this can’t go on, finn, right?

Finn: Oh, I realize that. I mean, all I want is for them to be home with me. Safe and healthy.

Taylor: Yeah. Well, they– they wanna come home, but steffy knows that they are safer in europe because sheila is nowhere around them. You’re dangerously close to losing steffy. Do you understand that? So, you need to do whatever you can to get sheila carter out of your life.

Deacon: Don’t go.

Sheila: Deacon, don’T.

Deacon: Stay. Even if it’s just for a little bit longer.

Sheila: What are you saying?

Brooke: Who are you texting?

Ridge: Steffy. Just checking on her.

Brooke: Oh, you miss her.

Ridge: I do. Of course, I miss her. Miss her every day. And I know why she’s gone. I get it. Strong, amazing woman, you know. But– but to me, she’s always gonna be my little girl and I wanna protect her. I wanna make sure that she’s okay. That her kids are okay. I want them to grow up looking at me the way that my kids looked at my dad. I can’t do that now because she’s 6,000 plus miles away. We all know why.

Brooke: I’m sorry. I know that you’ve been worried about steffy, kelly, and hayes now that sheila is on the loose again.

Ridge: Yeah, it’s not right. This is not what it should be. She should be home with us, with her family. Finn– I want to respect finn, ’cause I always thought he’d be a good match for her, you know. Because he sees her as the smart, intelligent, strong woman that she is and he lets her be. But this connection he has with– with his mom, I just– I don’t understand it.

Taylor: You know, I– I understand how– how you could feel bonded to sheila because she’s your birth mother, but the thing that’s confusing to everybody is why would you encourage that bond after she almost killed you and steffy? As long as sheila thinks that– that you love her or that you think she’s your mother… she’s never getting out of your life.

Deacon: Stay.

Sheila: Deacon, please, if you don’t mean it–

Deacon: I do. Don’t go. I don’t want to be alone. We’re traveling all across america

Brooke: Ridge, I’m not sure it’s fair to blame finn for sheila’s presence in our lives. Besides, he didn’t ask for her to be his birth mother.

Ridge: That’s not the point. The point is he’s gotta be a little bit more decisive as to what his feelings are for her. Because right now he’s making her feel like they could have a relationship. Like she could have a relationship with hayes.

Brooke: Well, now he’s made it very clear that he wants nothing to do with sheila.

Ridge: I’m so sorry. I’m– I’m sorry, how did he make that clear, really? By hugging her outside the judge’s chamber, by– by having her just, um, appear at the beach? She went to steffy’s house, uninvited. She was there. No wonder steffy left. He can’t protect her.

Brooke: Well, thank god she has a father that loves her so much that he will be there to take care of her.

Ridge: Well, the only way this father can protect her is something that carries a pretty long jail sentence. That’s up to finn.

Finn: You’re not wrong, taylor. I don’t know why I felt a connection to sheila. I mean, sheila’s done horrible things to me, to my family. I mean, she almost caused kelly and hayes to lose both their parents. I mean, I never should have given her any hope that we could have a relationship. I don’t– I– I just– I made a mistake and it doesn’t matter that she’s my birth mother, I should have drawn a line from the very beginning.

Taylor: Listen, I– I understand why you didn’t draw a line at the very beginning, but now you need to, okay? It’s time. Because steffy misses you.

Finn: Well, I miss them, too. I mean, taylor, they’re my entire life.

Taylor: Then fight for them. I mean, really fight for them. I don’t care what you have to do, finn. It doesn’t matter, just get sheila out of your life.

Sheila: I– I’ve got to admit my head is spinning right now. I– there– there’s been so much that’s happened today.

Deacon: It’s always been an adventure with us, right?

Sheila: [ Laughs ] Yes, that’s– that’s very true. But it’s not every day a girl discovers that she’s got a guardian angel.

Deacon: That’s definitely the first time anyone’s ever called me that.

Sheila: Well, that’s exactly what you are. You gave me back my freedom, my life.

Deacon: I helped a little.

Sheila: No, you helped more than a little.

Deacon: Come on. Spencer bungled the investigation. I bent the judge’s ear. I didn’t rewrite the law.

Sheila: Only you cared. You cared enough to go to bat for me and– and that’s worth everything. I have never– I’ve never had anyone care about me like that.

Deacon: Listen, I know what it’s like to make mistakes, sheila. That’s all. You know, I– I felt so alone that I didn’t know if I was gonna make it through the night. I think you can relate to that. You know, you felt those things, right?

Sheila: Yeah. Yeah. You know, I have.

Deacon: I mean, you and me, it’s like we’ve always been the underdogs. You know, the misfits, the convicts, you know. We’ve had to work twice as hard as everybody else just to get a chance to move ahead. We don’t get a chance to win too often. But you know what? It doesn’t have to be like that. We can write our own story. A better one. Right here, right now. Why give your family just any eggs

Finn: You leaving?

Taylor: Uh, yeah. Yeah, I’m gonna go check in with ridge. Fill him in on steffy and the kids.

Finn: Hey, I want you to know. I– I heard every word and you’re right. I promise you, I will find a way to cut sheila out of my life.

Taylor: Don’t promise me, finn, you know. Promise– promise your wife and your son.

Finn: Yeah, no, I will. And, um, thanks. Thanks for caring enough about steffy and me to come over here.

Taylor: Of course. I know you love her so much and she loves you, too.

Finn: She can have faith in me. Can you tell her that? Would you let her know how much I love her and how hard I’m fighting to get her, kelly, and hayes home?

Taylor: Yeah. Yeah, I’ll tell her but you have to start fighting. Like, really fighting. Look, finn, I know that you have talked to sheila before and it’s kind of gotten you nowhere ’cause she’s still in your life.

Finn: Yeah.

Taylor: But you have to let her know under no uncertain terms that– that she is not allowed in your life anymore or your children’s lives. You– you can’t let her back in. Look… she’s a monster, finn. You know that, I know that. Everybody knows that. She’s gonna use whatever she can to– to manipulate you, with sympathy. The minute that you show weakness around sheila carter is the minute she wins. I know that. I know that from experience. You fight for this, finn. You have to be strong because she– she gets power out of getting into people’s minds, manipulating. And the minute that she does that, you… you will lose everything. Do you understand what I’m saying?

Finn: I understand.

Taylor: Okay, good. So you need to make sure that… she knows that she is not welcome. And she is not allowed in your life. And that… that is how you fight, finn. Make her go away. Not just temporary. Make her go away for good.

Deacon: Yeah, just like that. Okay. No, that sounds– that sounds perfect. Okay. All right. Thank you.

[ Deacon chuckles ]

Sheila: What was that about?

Deacon: I just had to, uh, you know, make a few arrangements.

Sheila: Oh, for us?

Deacon: Well, you know, you’re the queen of surprises. I figured what the hell? I’ll try my hand at it.

Sheila: I don’t really love surprises. They– they don’t usually work out well for me.

Deacon: Think you’re gonna like this one. As a matter of fact, I’m sure you’re gonna like this one. What’s the matter? You don’t trust me?

Sheila: Oh, you know I do, daddy.

Deacon: That’s my girl. All right. So, uh, you know, I think you deserve something special. Hell, I think I deserve something special. So, come on. Let’s go.

Brooke: You know what I think we need?

Ridge: I have everything I need right here in my arms.

Brooke: Well, I think we need to step it up a notch. Do something we haven’t done in a while.

Ridge: Really?

Brooke: Mm-hmm.

Ridge: Now, I’m curious.

Brooke: Well, we could go home, get in the bathtub and I will make all your worries melt away.

Ridge: I have no doubt. You have the magic touch.

Brooke: Hm.

[ Brooke moans ]

[ Knocking on door ]

Taylor: Hi.

Ridge: Hey.

Taylor: Hi. Sorry, pam– pam said you were in here working.

Ridge: What are you doing here? I thought you were with steffy in europe. Is everything okay?

Taylor: What? With steffy? Um, you know, yeah. I mean, considering she left her husband and everything she loves.

Brooke: Yeah, it’s been difficult for all of us.

Taylor: Yeah, it really has. You know, you two seem to be doing just fine. Some luxury creams just sit on top of skin.

Ridge: Hey, I– I didn’t know you were coming back. When– when did you get in?

Taylor: Oh, I got in earlier this morning. You know, the– steffy and the kids are– are finally settling in and we got security set up, so, you know, I figured now was a perfect time to come back. I wanted to check on thomas and take care of a few other things.

Ridge: Sure, but how are they doing? Are they okay?

Brooke: Yeah, we’ve been so worried about them.

Taylor: You know, they’re– they’re fine, you know, all things considered. But the upside is that the international school is beautiful and kelly really likes it. And hayes is just, you know, taking everything in. You know, they’ve been uprooted from everything they know and that is hard. Their father not being in their lives. It’s affecting them.

Ridge: It’s– it’s good you were there. [Indistinct] Giving them comfort.

Taylor: You know, I hope so. I really do. You know, steffy– steffy misses finn, and she– she misses her life here. She’s really mad that– that sheila is the reason that she had to leave, you know. Ah, she’s just doing everything she can to make things okay for her and the kids right now. And right now they’re safe in europe.

Ridge: And they will be safe because as long as finn is here, sheila isn’t going anywhere.

Taylor: Oh, you are right about that. Hey, uh, I– I stopped by and talked to finn before I came here.

Brooke: How did he seem?

Taylor: Ah, I… he misses his family, of course, but I told him that– that he has to do everything that he can to make sure that sheila is out of their lives. I mean, sure it’s gonna be hard, but… my god, he just needs to stand up and fight.

Ridge: Because steffy can’t come home until he does.

Taylor: Exactly. And that’s the hard part because as long as sheila believes that finn loves her, she’s not gonna give up. He has to convince her with everything he has that– that she is out of their lives forever. He wants nothing to do with her. That he does not love her. I mean, how could he? Sheila carter is not lovable.

[ Sheila chuckles ]

Deacon: Here we are.

Sheila: Wow. This is beautiful. You did this all for me?

Deacon: I was hoping you’d have dinner with me tonight.

Sheila: Oh, well, I am gonna have to check my schedule but I– I think I might be able to work something out. We have the place all to ourselves?

Deacon: Yeah. Yeah. Even hollis didn’t stick around. No one’s gonna bother us. And I know that because I’m the boss.

Sheila: Indeed, you are, daddy. It’s like you recreated the date that we had months ago and it’s– it’s really special. It’s like you knew what I needed then and you know what I need now. But why?

Deacon: Why not?

Sheila: I– I think we both agreed that we weren’t going to see each other anymore. I want a life with finn. You want a life with hope and if either one of them found out about us–

Deacon: Yeah. Let’s– let’s not do that. Not tonight. This evening, it’s all about you. All right, sheila? That crazy– scratch that, that unique, unpredictable, and passionate woman who hobbled her way into my life.

Sheila: [ Chuckles ] Yeah, all nine toes of mine.

Deacon: I said you were unique.

Sheila: Yes. And– and you– you get that. It’s like you get me. You– you really get me.

Deacon: That goes both ways.

Sheila: I– I don’t have to be anything else but myself. It’s like you– you see the person that I want to be and you actually have me believing that I can be that person. Like– it’s like I can see myself through your eyes.

Deacon: Sheila, you are so much more than anyone thinks. I believe that. And I also believe that people can change and everybody deserves a chance to try.

Sheila: And you’ve– you’ve given me that chance. You’ve– you’ve done so much for me and I’m not talking about just assuring my freedom, but you’ve given me a fresh start. And I– I really might have a chance at a relationship with my son. And it’s no secret how I feel about finn. You know how much I love him. And I’m so desperate to have a life with– with finn and hayes. But… I– I want a life with you, too.

[ Sheila sighs ] That really does make me crazy, doesn’t it?

Deacon: No, it doesn’T. That doesn’t make you crazy. That doesn’t make you crazy at all.

Days of Our Lives Update

Days of Our Lives logo

Update written by Joseph

Paulina meets Melinda Trask in her office. Melinda congratulates Paulina on becoming mayor and tells her how proud she is to work for her, calling her a fine choice to replace Abe. Paulina cuts her off and tells Melinda that she’s fired.

Eric shows up at Sloan’s apartment with his bags packed and asks if they are still moving in together.

EJ joins Nicole in the living room of the DiMera Mansion. EJ apologizes for being late and missing dinner as he pours a drink. EJ complains about spending the day going through resumes because he fired Wendy Shin which Nicole questions. EJ explains that he caught Wendy trying to get the goods on him to prove that he hired a hit on Ava Vitali.

In London, Ava and Harris discover Susan’s marriage to Edmund P. Crumb. Ava says she’s desperate for anything to get EJ off her back but questions how it’s going to help them when the article is from way back. Ava questions what Edmund would have to do with Susan escaping an exploding car back in Salem. Harris feels it’s worth checking in to. Ava agrees since there is a connection but wonders if Edmund will be able to tell them if Susan is alive or dead.

Melinda questions Paulina firing her. Melinda argues that she knows how hard she has worked for the town and that her job is her life. Paulina responds that it’s not about her job performance and that she just doesn’t like her. Paulina talks about Melinda helping Sloan make her and Chanel’s lives miserable. Melinda argues that at the time, she felt it was what she needed to do since Sloan had evidence of her guilt. Paulina complains that Melinda had fun arresting her. Melinda admits she may have acted a bit hasty but feels that’s the same way Paulina is acting now in letting her go. Melinda insists that it’s a mistake to get rid of her when she can offer her a high profile conviction. Melinda brings up Paulina’s position as mayor and how she’ll have to run on her own in a short amount of time while Clint Rawlings is still gunning for her job. Melinda is sure she doesn’t want to risk giving Clint ammunition. Paulina guesses closing a high profile case wouldn’t be the worst idea and asks who’s conviction she has in mind.

Sloan tells Eric that she does want him to move in but she didn’t think it would be tonight as he didn’t give her a notice. Eric apologizes and says it just hit him that he needed to give Roman a few days to find someone to take his room above the Pub. Sloan jokes that she didn’t expect a former priest to be so eager to be living in sin. Eric talks about being kicked out of the priesthood. Eric adds that they won’t be living in sin for long since they are engaged to be married. Sloan says the questions is how long until they tie the knot.

Nicole asks EJ if Wendy figured out that he sent the hit woman after Ava. EJ guesses that Tripp put the idea in Wendy’s head since they are an item now and Tripp seems to adore his gangster mother, so he must have convinced Wendy to do his dirty work. EJ adds that he caught Wendy trying to hack his phone which is grounds for dismissal. Nicole asks if Wendy didn’t find anything. EJ assures that he left his phone intentionally so he could catch her in the act, which he then did and fired her immediately. EJ feels he should’ve had security escort Wendy out but he was distracted by something she said. Nicole asks what she said. EJ informs her that Wendy said Susan was still alive.

Ava questions what is taking so long as Harris tries to find an Edmund P. Crumb in London. Harris complains about the internet being slow. Ava questions if Edmund and Susan even have any connection now. Harris suggests maybe Susan turned to him for help and points out that Edmund is their only lead right now. Harris then finds the one Edmund Crumb in London with his address. Ava tells Harris to get the phone back to the waiter and then they can get out of here.

Melinda tells Paulina that it’s Li Shin. Paulina questions what she has on him. Melinda brings up Li trying to have Stefan DiMera killed but he’s still walking around free. Paulina points out that is because there wasn’t enough evidence to convict him. Melinda tells her that there will be very soon. Melinda explains that she’s been working on Li and once he’s lulled in to a false sense of security, it’s just a matter of time before he confesses. Paulina asks how long this will take before Li confesses to his crime. Melinda responds that she’s having dinner with him tonight in the town square. Melinda insists that Li is ready to crack and when he does, she promises to nail Li Shin to the wall. Paulina question how she knows the confession will stick. Melinda assures that she knows what she’s doing. Paulina warns that she better or else she’s out. Paulina then exits the office. Melinda quickly grabs her phone and calls Li to ask him to have dinner tonight.

Eric tells Sloan that he’s sorry but he hasn’t given much thought to when or where they get married. Sloan jokes that it won’t be at the Pub. Eric points out that Rex and Sarah didn’t have a problem with it as he reveals they got married there today. Sloan questions not being invited. Eric informs her that he wasn’t invited either which surprises Sloan as she asks if he and his brother are on the outs. Eric says he and Rex are good, but he and Sarah have a history. Sloan guesses she’s an ex. Eric says it’s something like that but assures that he won’t insist on them getting married at the Pub because he doesn’t want to either. Sloan asks why that is. Eric reveals because he already had a wedding there. Sloan guesses it was to Nicole which Eric confirms.

Nicole questions Wendy blurting out that Susan is still alive. EJ admits he never saw that coming. Nicole asks where she would’ve gotten that from. EJ guesses it came from Ava as she apparently now claims she remembers seeing that Susan escaped the car and didn’t die that night. Nicole calls it amazing news. EJ says it would be if it were true but he doesn’t believe it and feels Ava was just trying to save herself.

Harris and Ava go to the location of Edmund Crumb’s address. Ava rings the doorbell. Edmund answers the door and questions why they are ringing the bell in the middle of the night. Ava explains that they were hoping to talk to him about a woman named Susan Banks.

Li meets Melinda in the town square with glasses of wine. Li admits he was kind of surprised to get her call and asks what the occasion is. Melinda says she just missed him and that he’s been on her mind a lot. Melinda claims that she keeps thinking back on the good times they had together and how no one has ever turned her on like he does or made her feel so alive. Melinda adds that she loves hanging out with him and guesses she’s just trying to tell him how happy she is that they are seeing each other. Li reveals he was actually thinking they should call the whole thing off. Melinda questions why as she thought everything was going so well. Li says he thought so too until he heard this as he then reveals a recording of Melinda saying she was going to nail him to the wall.

Marlena joins Kate at the Brady Pub. Kate tells her that she was just looking at a photo of baby Victoria that Rex sent her before they learned the truth. Marlena says she’s sorry as she knows Kate and Roman were looking forward to a new grandbaby. Kate asks if Marlena came for chowder. Marlena explains that she was on her way home and decided to check on Eric, so she asks if he’s around. Kate reveals that Eric no longer lives there as he moved out.

Sloan forgot Eric and Nicole got married at the Pub. Eric apologizes for bringing it up. Sloan understands that’s why they shouldn’t get married at the Pub. Sloan jokes that she sure as hell won’t get married somewhere that Eric has already gotten married. Sloan suggests they shouldn’t wait too long since adoption agencies are going to prefer married couples. Eric agrees. Sloan asks if Belle is willing to represent them in the adoption. Eric doesn’t think that’s going to be such a good idea.

Edmund invites Harris and Ava in for tea and tells them that he heard the news about Susan and that he saw on TV that a deranged woman drove her off the road. Harris notes that the woman was mentally ill. Edmund says regardless, she cost the world a gentle and beautiful soul. Ava says that’s the reason they are here as they believe that may not be true. Edmund questions what they are saying. Ava explains that they believe Susan might have gotten out of the car and may be alive. Edmund questions what would give her that idea. Harris explains that the woman who drove off the cliff is now saying that she saw Susan get away before the explosion.

EJ tells Nicole that Wendy using Susan’s supposed return from the dead to try to nullify him makes sense but for Ava it’s a no brainer. Nicole questions him thinking Ava made it up. EJ guesses that Ava found out there was a contract out on her and suddenly remembered that Susan survived the explosion. EJ calls the timing rather convenient. Nicole feels maybe there’s a chance that Ava is telling the truth. EJ says she’s not because if his mother was still alive, she would make sure that he knew. Nicole says that’s unless Susan was so afraid of Ava, that she went into hiding. Nicole wonders if Susan is still in danger and wants to consider that Ava is telling the truth. EJ argues that if Susan was still alive, she would’ve found some way to send him a sign. The electricity then goes out around them as Nicole asks what he was saying.

Melinda questions where Li got the recording. Li reminds Melinda of when he visited her office last week and they had sex on her desk. Li reveals that he gave her a teddy bear with a bug inside of it. Melinda asks how she could be so stupid. Li wondered that as well as he didn’t think it would be so easy. Melinda questions why he did it and what tipped him off. Li responds that he didn’t need tipping off as he knew from the beginning that she was out to get him. Li admits he thought he could sweep her off her feet but on the chance he was wrong, he took out an insurance policy. Melinda can’t believe he played her like this. Li tells her to give it up as they played each other and they don’t care about each other. Li declares that Melinda is only upset because she lost as he then storms off.

Sloan asks Eric if she’s the reason that Belle won’t represent them because she still can’t stand them. Eric says it’s not that and that Belle is just going through a really hard time in her personal life, so he thinks it’s just best that they find another attorney. Eric feels it can’t be that difficult and suggests they could start working on it tonight if she’d like. Sloan points out that he hasn’t even unpacked yet. Eric says he’s just excited, knowing that they both want to adopt so he can’t wait to get started. Eric then questions her look. Sloan says it’s just thinking of how this was all her idea and asks if Eric is sure it’s what he wants. Eric thought he made it clear and says a child doesn’t need to share his DNA to feel like his own. Eric says there’s a kid out there who desperately needs a mom and dad and that can be them. Eric states that he’s always wanted to be a father.

EJ lights candles while Nicole questions him having nothing to say. Nicole brings up that EJ said Susan would send him a sign and then the lights went out. EJ argues that it could just be a faulty circuit breaker. Nicole brings up what Susan can do. EJ feels Susan is not a subtle so a sign from her would be more than the power going out. Nicole says if he says so.

Edmund questions the woman who caused the crash saying she saw Susan escape before the car burst in flames. Edmund asks how they know it’s not the ramblings of a mentally ill person. Harris says he knows the woman and she’s had a lot of treatments. Ava adds that the woman just recently remembered seeing Susan escape. Edmund brings up that the crash was months ago and questions if Susan is alive, where has she been all this time. Ava and Harris tell him that is what they are trying to figure out and why they came to see him. Edmund questions why they think he would have knowledge of where Susan is. Ava calls it a long story but says they feel like Susan has been trying to reach out to them, which is what brought them to London in the first place. They add that they had another crumb related clue. Harris says they did some research which led them to him and asks if he’s gotten any signs from Susan. Edmund says no but then questions why Susan would need to send him messages when she’s chained up to the floor of the back bedroom

Melinda remains in the town square and texts Sloan, saying she hopes her night is going better than her night as she just got dumped. Paulina appears and asks Melinda how her dinner went. Melinda admits it did not go how she planned. Paulina says she figured and then tells Melinda to pack up her office because she’s out.

Eric tells Sloan that he’s almost unpacked. Sloan mentions a text from Melinda, who got some bad news tonight. Eric says he’s sorry to hear that but questions them being friends now when it wasn’t long ago that they weren’t. Sloan responds that their rivalry was in the courtroom and she’s found since coming to town that female friends are hard to come by. Sloan asks if Eric would mind if she goes to check on Melinda. Eric says of course not. Sloan tells Eric that she’s really excited about the baby and the adoption process. Eric tells Sloan that he loves her. Sloan says she loves him too and then exits.

EJ continues looking through his phone for a new IT department head at DiMera Enterprises. Nicole questions EJ being so calm right now. EJ tells her there’s nothing they can do about a power outage. Nicole questions sticking to that theory while EJ mocks the idea of believing it’s a message from Susan, who might be alive just because Wendy Shin said so. EJ assures the lights will come back on any second and then they do. EJ jokes with Nicole that he told her so.

Ava guesses Edmund was just joking but Edmund says that Susan is right in there. Harris asks why he would have her chained and then starts feeling dizzy. Ava starts to feel it too. Edmund then reveals that he poisoned their tea as Ava and Harris pass out. Edmund declares that takes care of that.

Melinda goes to her office and begins packing up her things. Melinda picks up the teddy bear that Li got her with the bugging device. Melinda declares that she figured out Gabi left Li because he sucks as a lover. Melinda then takes a hammer to the teddy bear as Sloan walks in and asks if he gave her a reason. Melinda admits that Li found out that she was only seeing him to make a case against him and then since she failed to make the case, Paulina fired her which Sloan questions. Melinda complains that Paulina hates her and it’s in her authority as mayor. Sloan remarks that this kind of works out for them both because Melinda needs a job and she needs an attorney. Sloan then asks if Melinda would like to help her and Eric adopt a baby.

Eric continues unpacking and comes across an old wedding photo of he and Nicole. Marlena then shows up at the door and questions this being Eric’s new home which he confirms. Eric asks how she knew where to find him. Marlena explains that she stopped by the Pub where Kate told her that he moved in here. Eric apologizes for not telling her himself and says he just got so busy. Marlena says she understands but she was surprised since she didn’t know he and Sloan were this serious. Eric confirms that they love each other and it just seemed like the logical next step for them. Marlena states that she’s happy if he is. Eric assures that he is. Eric acknowledges going through a rough patch recently but he thinks he’s turned the corner and that he and Sloan are committed to each other, so he thinks he’s ready. Marlena responds that she hopes it works.

EJ finishes a call and informs Nicole that a car ran in to a utility pole and knocked out the power in the area, but they just finished repairing it so that’s the only sign. Nicole remains uncertain. EJ insists that the only liar in this scenario is Ava Vitali and he hopes she rots in Hell for eternity so that Susan may finally rest in peace.

Edmund places Harris and Ava’s unconscious bodies onto a bed as Susan Banks then walks in and questions what Edmund thinks he’s doing.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

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.

THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

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 ]

[ 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.

THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

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?

This.

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.

[ 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.

Please.

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.
