THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!
Are you okay?
I am going to open a bottle of something to celebrate. Should we do wine or champagne? Uh, either is fine, but can you remind me again what we’re celebrating? Hello. Did we not just kill it at the bowling alley? You killed it at the bowling alley. I managed to bounce the ball into the lane next to it. Yeah, and still knock down three pins.
That’s not easy to do. Well, considering the fact that I haven’t bowled since grade school, I mean, I guess I did okay. How’s this? Uh, perfect.
Are you sure this is okay? I mean, like, okay with your mom? And I’m just here. Oh, don’t worry about Mama. She is out to dinner with Abe. They’re getting to know each other again from scratch. So, you and I, we have the place all to ourselves. Well, you
look comfortable. Ah, getting there. I thought you were happy to be back. What? I am. It’s just been a bit of a whirlwind, you know? Rawlings fires me, and then he gets fired, and then, uh, boom. Here I am. I hear ya. It’s a lot. Yeah. What about you? You seem a little down. Well, it’s just that earlier, you told Paulina that she should have given me the commissioner job.
And I turned it down. Right. Well, I’m starting to think that maybe that was a mistake. Hey,
Tripp. Hey, Caitlin. Uh, what’s the latest on our John Doe? Uh, well, we’re still trying to determine why he lost his memory. And, uh, Black Patch is trying to figure out his identity so they can reunite him with his son. Oh, wow. I know from personal experience that, uh, Dad is excellent at accomplishing that particular mission.
No, thank goodness for that, right? Give me a sign off on your charts. Ah, yes, please. Thank you. Uh, and I was hoping, um, if it’s not too much trouble, if you could maybe help me out with one more thing? Of course. You know I’d always do anything to help you. Okay, well I’m glad, because this is kind of an emergency.
Dammit, what good is hiring an assassin if they won’t return your texts?
Dammit, I want to know that it’s done. Then what’s done? Are you
sure about hiring me for this job? Of course I’m sure. I’ve commissioned your services in the past and I’ve always been happy with your work. And I appreciate the business. I just didn’t think you did this sort of thing anymore. As a rule, I don’t. But, this is different. It’s… personal. I understand. You don’t need to worry.
I’ll take care of the Vitali woman and it’ll never come back to you. This is where it ends.
Like sand through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.
Um. A mistake? Like a mistake as in you actually do want to be commissioner? Well, I’m definitely qualified. You said so yourself. You told Paulina that she wouldn’t find a better candidate. I mean, don’t, don’t get me wrong. Your career matters to me. You matter to me. Very much. But it’s just that, you know, you told me that This position and job is a once in a lifetime opportunity.
I get it. I do. Well, if that’s true, then I think you’re sitting in my chair.
Okay, um, well then, um. Dude, I’m joking. I’m messing with you. You what? I’m messing with you. Oh my god, you… Wow. Okay. Yeah, and so, with my mom needing to see me and our surprise visit from a very drunk Leo Stark, Wendy and I… Ah, ah, ah. Say no more. Yeah. Why don’t you just tell me how I can help? Well, we’re seeing each other again tonight.
And we’re trying to think ahead, so nothing goes wrong this time. I completely understand. Well, um, the answer is yes. Um, I’ll call your father and, um, you can have our place tonight.
Johnny, I didn’t know you were home. Obviously. Seems like I caught you in the middle of a pretty heated text exchange with someone. What’d they do to make you so angry? I’m not angry. I’m a bit frustrated, perhaps. Hmm. About what? I had to take my car in for repairs. My antique sports car. Gabby sideswiped it in the driveway the other day.
Not your most adored and prized possession. No wonder you’re so upset. It’s bad enough that I have to watch that gold digging tramp parade around this house as if it were her own, but to destroy my property and not have the decency to apologize for it is Okay, Dad. You’re pissed. I get it. But if I may shed a little perspective, not like it’s a matter of life and death.
Hmm. She’s still breathing. Freeze! Drop the gun! Adi, back up an ambulance right away. We have a gun in room 207. You don’t understand. I understand that you just shot this woman. I didn’t have a choice. She attacked me. She was about to kill both of us. Tell him, Harris. Drop the weapon. Now!
Ava? Just do it. Drop the gun
Well, you know what I will go call your dad right now and tell him that we are vacating our place tonight Thank you so much for the offer Kayla, but Wendy and I actually have a reservation at the Salem Inn. Oh You don’t need our place. Mm hmm Well, then how can I help you? Well, I have done everything I can think of to make sure there are no interruptions tonight except for This.
Will you take it? Just for tonight? Of course. Yeah. I, I, I know I could just turn it off, but if it’s there, I’ll be tempted to check it. And, uh, if there’s an actual emergency, you can call our room number, okay? It’s number 304. Okay. Don’t worry. I’m happy to do it. Thank you. In case of emergency. I call 304. I got it.
I got it. Listen, you just focus on having a good time tonight. Will do. Thank you.
Chapter 8, Labor and Delivery. I’m assuming this is Nicole’s? She just went up to bed, must have forgotten it. Ah. How’s she feeling? Fine, she’s doing well. Good. How are you feeling? With my new baby brother or sister on the way. I’m thrilled. I’ll admit, I wasn’t expecting to become a father again, but I couldn’t be happier.
That must be, uh, incredible feeling. Not one that I’m ready for, obviously, but… But when you were married, you must have thought about parenthood, right? Perhaps you’re thinking about it again. What it might be like someday with Chanel. You’ve been talking to Nicole. Of course I have. She’s my fiancé. And your once and future stepmother.
We just want what’s best for you, son. So tell me, did you take her advice and tell Chanel how you feel? I was about to. Uh, then we got interrupted. And in hindsight, I’m glad we did. Why’s that? Because the person who interrupted us was Talia Hunter, who was meeting Chanel for a date of the romantic variety.
Talia Hunter? Isn’t she the one who poisoned those biscuits and got Chanel’s bakery shut down? Yeah. Why on earth would you want to get involved with her? I don’t know. Is it serious? Does it matter? There’s obviously something going on between the two of them, so I just, you know, I decided to… keep my mouth shut.
Back off. Well, that was stupid.
I still can’t believe how you nailed that split. Like those back corner pins, like how did you even do that? I don’t know. I guess I’m just that good. Oh, whatever.
I had a really good time tonight. Me too.
Thank you, Chanel. For what? For not hating me. I mean, for what I did, most people would never speak to me again. So, I know how big of a deal this is. And I just want to let you know how much it means to me that you gave me a second chance. I’m glad I did. So, how do you think it’s going so far? Pretty well.
Any ideas of how it could be better? I
have a one.
Oh, we’re really taking full advantage of that amended policy, aren’t we? Well, not full advantage.
What is it? You should be in that chair.
Oh, it is a comfortable chair. No, I’m serious. I am serious. Paulina offered you the job and… If you want it, take it. I don’t. Okay, you are an outstanding cop. And Mayor Price gave you your job back that you never should have left in the first place for completely bogus reasons. And now you can keep doing what you love, I can keep doing what I love.
And we can keep doing this.
As much as I enjoy sharing this moment with you. What do you say that we go to your house and share your bed? I would say a very enthusiastic. Yes.
I’m on my way. What is it? There’s been a shooting in Bayview. Let’s go. Yeah.
Ava. Ava, just put, just put the gun down. I can’t. I can’t let him take me in. I just shot a woman. Yeah, in self defense. Yeah. And after everything I’ve done, they’re not gonna believe that. Last chance, lady. Drop the weapon, or I’ll make you drop it. Oh, I would think twice about that if I were you. No, Ava. Ava, what are you doing?
I told you, I’m not going to prison. So if I need to shoot this guy to get out of here, then that’s exactly what I’m gonna do.
Oh, sorry, uh, this is Dr. Johnson. Do you mind? No, no, go for it. Hi, Dr. Johnson. Hi, Talia. Um, listen, I know it’s late, but I was wondering if you’d come by the hospital. The hospital? No, no need to worry, but, um, I have some news that I think I should deliver in person. Uh, yeah, sure, I’ll be right there.
Is everything okay? She wants to meet with me. I’m guessing it’s about the job. Well, if the chief of staff is asking you to come in, it’s probably good news. I doubt it. More likely she doesn’t want to disappoint me over the phone. Let’s just face it, the board would be insane if they hired me. Oh, come on, don’t say that.
It would be a PR nightmare for them. You think they would want headlines saying they brought on the Biscuit Bandit? I think they want a great doctor. Which is what you are. Top of your medical class? Like, come on! Hey, don’t be so pessimistic, okay? I believe in you, Toya. Believe in yourself. Okay, if you say so.
I’ll try. Thank you for the pep talk. Mm hmm. And you let me know how it goes.
Did you just call me stupid? Uh, uh, uh, I called your decision about Chanel stupid. So let me get this straight. You’re encouraging me to become the odd man out in yet another love triangle? I’m encouraging you to go after the woman you love, son. Look, Dad, I am not going to get between her and tell you that would be stupid, not to mention disrespectful.
Sander, you have no obligation to respect a relationship that barely exists, especially since Chanel would be better off with you. Wait, wait, back up. Since when are you team Chanel? Since she turned her life around. She worked hard, she started a business, and it became a huge success. So you’re admitting you were wrong about her?
I am. And besides, no matter what flaws I thought Chanel had… They pale in comparison to Ava Vitaris.
Ava? Ava, I need you to calm down. Okay? You didn’t do anything wrong. When the cops get here, we’ll explain what happened. Cops? Yes, you heard him call for backup. So Rafe’s coming? Great. He hates me. There’s no way he’s gonna listen to me. He’ll listen to me. But when he shows up, you don’t want him to see you waving that gun around?
I have to do this. I have to. There’s no other choice. Ava, there is. I promise. Come on, just, if you don’t want to put the gun down, just give it to me.
Ava, nobody else needs to get hurt. Please, just hand me the gun.
Thank you. Don’t
move! Stay right there. We’re leaving.
Wow, you look beautiful. Oh. You clean up pretty nicely yourself. How long have you been here? A few hours. I wanted to talk to the manager to make sure everything goes smoothly. I did the same thing. And he confirmed that no one else is registered to this room. Oh, so no drunken gossip columnists showing up at our door?
And we don’t have to worry about anybody texting or calling us either. Well, I have my phone turned off. I gave mine to Kayla. So she’s only gonna call this room unless there’s an actual emergency. So, unless a plane crashes into the hospital or… Yeah.
I still feel like we’re forgetting something. Don’t worry at all, okay? We’ve got it all covered. Tonight, you and I will finally be together. With no interruptions.
Sorry they took so long. We, uh, thought you were someone else. Just your steak and champagne. I figured we’d be hungry. After the day we had. Good thinking. Um, please make sure we’re not disturbed. Of course. Thank you, sir. Thank you. Oh! This is what I forgot.
All set. Then I will pop the champagne.
I don’t need the champagne.
All I need is
you. Did you seriously just compare Chanel to Ava Vitale? Dad, Chanel was my wife. Ava was just a blip on the radar. Thank God for that. Dad, stop. What? I don’t want to sit here and listen to you trash Ava. She killed your grandmother.
She’s mentally ill. Okay, she doesn’t need to be punished. She needs help.
For that, my dear boy, we’ll have to agree to disagree. Okay, fine. Can we just, please, talk about something else now? Just, just one more thing. Look, if it’s about Ava… No, it’s about Chanel. Look. Dad. I don’t need you to tell me what to do, okay? I got this. I’m not going to. All I’ll say is, if it were me, I would not pass up the chance for happiness with the woman I love out of some misguided sense of decorum.
I’d be proactive. Tell her how I feel.
Ah, Talia, hi! Thanks for coming. Yeah, of course. Well, like I said on the phone, um, I have some news that I really felt like I wanted to tell you in person. I assume it’s about the job. It is. The fact that you even considered hiring me in the first place, Dr. Johnson, is seriously unbelievably kind. Truly, I was blown away.
But then again, I knew the board would never go for it. Well, I spoke to Seth Burns and he basically said the same thing. That given your excellent qualifications, well, even with that, he didn’t think the board would agree to it. But they agreed to hire you on a provisional basis. Wait, really? Yeah, you can start tomorrow.
Oh my god, this is incredible! Dr. Johnson, thank you so much. I assure you, and I promise you, I won’t let you down.
Is it just the one victim? As far as I know. The ambulance should have been here by now. I’ll call them again. We gotta get her to the hospital as soon as possible. What happened? One of our patients shot her. What patient? Ava Vitale.
Okay. Hey, are you alright? Yeah, I’m fine. I just, I don’t know a damn clue what the hell’s going on. Me neither. Why do you think that woman came after you? I don’t know. Just like I don’t know if she’s got friends back at Bayview who are still coming after me. I know. I was worried about that too. That’s why I got you out of there.
Thank you. I know you can thank me once I know you’re safe because if that woman does have an accomplice… They could be anywhere. So we gotta go. Go, go, where are we going? Where are we gonna go, huh? I am not going to the police. Okay. I got another idea. Let’s go.
Kayla’s with the victim now. Yeah, that’s right. I need to put an APB out on Ava Vitale and Harris Michaels. They escaped Bayview approximately 30 minutes ago. Consider them armed and dangerous officers. Should proceed with extreme caution. I want updates every hour. Unless you hear something, I want you to call me.
Thanks. Hey. Hey, how is she? Well, not good. The trauma team is trying to stabilize her to get her surgery. Ugh. You think she’ll make it? Well, it’s too soon to tell. Ava Vitale did this? Well, we’re not sure. We do know that she just escaped Bayview with Harris Michaels. I’d like to question the victim, but I’m guessing that’s off the table for now.
Right. Yeah, they need to get her to surgery right away. But I’ll keep you posted. Thank you. Thanks.
Nice job swiping that key from the guy at the front desk. Well, I didn’t need my SEAL training for that. The clerk was about 150 years old. Yeah. So what are we doing here? We are establishing a base of operations. Oh. So that’s what this is. That’s what this is. We need to regroup before we make any more moves.
First order of business is figure out who that woman was. And why she came after you. Yeah, well, like I said, I got no clue. I got no idea who that woman was. Well, she obviously knew who you were because she was trying to kill you. So can you think of anybody? With a grudge? From, from your past? The past?
Like from, from the Mafia? This wasn’t a Mafia hit. But this was a hit. Yeah, it was. And I know exactly who put it out.
Johnny. Hey, yeah, uh, I’m sorry that I just dropped by like this. I hope it’s not a bad time. No! Oh. What’s going on? Uh, look, I’m not really sure how to say this, so I’m just gonna say it, okay? Okay. I’ve been wanting to tell you this for a while. I actually even tried a couple of times, uh, but just the timing was…
Off. Um, and now you’re with Talia, and the last thing I wanna do is get in the middle of that, but… I can’t keep quiet anymore. Not about this. I I just, I I had to come here and tell you how I feel.
Chanel, I’m still in love with you.
Waves hustle, get so crazy I wanna go back where memories take me And you, oh you, feel like home
you, you feel like home Yeah, you, you feel like You feel
How’s the victim? She’s still in surgery, but get this. You know how she was wearing scrubs? Yeah, the guard thought that she was a nurse. She’s not. I spoke to an administrator at Bayview. She doesn’t work there. Never has. Hmm. Here’s her phone. Looks like a burner. Oh, there’s no passcode. There’s a ton of text messages.
It’s all from one number. Let me guess, it’s blocked? And listen to this. Why haven’t I heard back from you? Is Ava out of the picture yet?
Who the hell sent this?
God, it is so obvious. Has to be. You thought of somebody? How about the guy we were just talking about, who’s convinced that I killed his mother and wants me dead? You mean… Yeah. It’s EJ frickin DiMera.
Well, let me know when she gets to recovery, alright? The police commissioner is here and he wants to question her. Yes, I told him he needs to be patient. Uh, okay. Thanks a lot.
Ava, how are you involved with all this? We
So, that happened. With no interruptions. I don’t know about you, but I’m starting to think we might never… Me too.
But it was so worth
the wait. Johnny, I, I, I don’t know what to say. Sorry, uh, Mama must have forgot her keys. Talia. I just had to come back. Is everything okay? What’s better than okay? You were right the whole time. Dr. Johnson was calling with good news. I got the job! Oh my god, amazing! I know, I’m so excited.
Um, I didn’t know you had company.
What’s going on? Uh, nothing, nothing. I was just, uh, leaving. You don’t have to leave on my account. I’m not. I just, I have actually some place that I need to be. So, um… Good night, Chanel. And congratulations to you.
Are you okay? Uh, yeah, yeah. I’m fine.
