Mrs. Brady! Hi! Oh, Belle, please. Okay, Belle. Wow, those are pretty flowers. Are those for you or someone special? They are for somebody really special. I don’t know how I got this lucky.

Oh, you, uh, You really took me by surprise there. I mean, after I talked to my dad, I was determined to get you back, but then I Determined? You were headed for the door, I practically had to drag you back in here. Well, I wasn’t really sure, I was The whole thing was gonna go. I misread your signals. You and I, we’ve always been complicated.

Less. So I just assumed that it was gonna stay that way. You know, which is why… I thought you were telling me what you would tell you. Well, then I have to get better at sending signals. Because… It’s you. I want to be with Johnny. It’s you.

What part of who hired you to kill a Vitaly do you not get? No one hired me, I swear. I was there to treat Miss Vitaly, not kill her. I’m a nurse. Like hell you are. Look, the way I see it, you have two options. You can either dummy up and go down for attempted murder, or you can roll on whoever’s paying you and maybe we can cut a deal.

It’s your choice.

It’s not a trick question. I just want to know how long the detective has been in there. Bloody hell. Just make sure no one knows you called me.

Well, it’s up to me now. I have to shut her up.

I was with the manager down the block at the pizza place. He recognized Michaels from a photo in the paper. The desk clerk, he made a positive ID of the woman in the room. Be careful. Tally and Michaels, they’ve both killed before. The situation calls for… Don’t hesitate to use deadly force. Gotcha. Alright, yeah.

I’m sorry that we had to cut our night short. Are you really apologizing? Tripp, you just found out someone tried to kill your mother. Not someone. EJ DiMera paid for that hit. I just know it. God knows where my mom is now. I’m just going. I’ll dump this bag in my room, and you can hop on the computer and see if there’s any more news on the search.

Yeah, I’ll do the same. I’ll meet you back in the living room. Like sand through

the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.


It’s not warm. Looks like they missed dinner and we missed them.

Son of a… They cut off their hospital ID bracelets and took off. Damn it! Sean, what are you doing here?

Mom, thank God you’re okay. You are okay, right? Mm hmm, yeah. Okay. Tell me what happened. Well, a nurse that I’d never seen before came in to give me a shot. I know a hired gun when I seen one. Yeah, I heard that you shot her. Look, EJ sent her. I’m sure of it. Oh my god, this, this. Wendy, uh, this is, this is my mom.

Wendy was with me when we found out about you guys. From the police, I assume? They’re hunting for you both. Yeah, figured. Okay, well, if you didn’t walk through the lobby… We used the fire escape, stairs, and I jimmied the window. Where were you guys when the cops caught up with you? The Salem Inn. Okay, good.

That means we should be safe. For now. What

name you wanted to hear? I’d give it to you, make this go away, but I don’t. I hate guns. I never even held one. Still sticking to the nurse story, huh? Well, the hospital administrator at Bayview, they’ve never even heard of you. And you’re not on the payroll. I don’t work for them. An agency sent me to cover for someone who was sick.

I’ll need the name of that agency. Look, I don’t know what this crazy lady told you, but she shot me. She and the guy who grabbed the gun, they’re in this together. She hasn’t told us a thing. And neither has he. They’re on the run. And that’s not enough to convince you got me all wrong. I’ve never seen that lady before in my life.

Hmm. Interesting. Because there’s an unread message on this burner phone you had on you. Shall I read it?

Why haven’t I heard from you? Is Ava out of the picture yet? You know, this is what we call in the detective business, having the goods.

So, are you ready to talk?

You know, after all the bad stuff that I did to Chanel, To get a second chance like this, I just feel so lucky. Oh, I’m so happy for you, Talia. You know, I’ve been getting a lot of second chances lately. And it all started when you became my lawyer. I mean, your mom, she’s great. She helped me understand what Colin was doing to my head, and Dr.

Johnson at the hospital, she brought me on a staff to work at the university hospital. Oh, really? I didn’t hear that. How? Yeah, it just happened. But now, maybe Chanel and I have a future. But, I just called her and told her that I wanted to come over, but she hasn’t called me back yet. So, I’m trying to decide if I should just wait, or…

If I should surprise her. Oh. Ah, well, I always vote for surprise. Never underestimate an armful of flowers. Well, Here. Here’s a surprise for you to give to your husband. Thank you so much for everything that you’ve done for me. Seriously.

Sean, I asked you a question. What are you doing here? Um, I mean, this is a manhunt, right? I heard you call out on the police scanner to get some backup, so I figured I’d come here and see if I can help. So, uh, This is where they were holed up. Um, Uh, Ava and, Ava and Michaels. Sean. Call for backup was for officers who were on duty.

Uh, yeah, I mean, so what? I mean, it’s obvious that you, you, you came up empty here, so why don’t you give me, um, I mean, like, give me an assignment? I appreciate that, Sean, but you, you realize this is not a normal day for you? Yeah, nothing gets past you, does it? Excuse me. What the hell am I supposed to do?

Just sit there in the mausoleum all day. Right? Victor’s not coming back. They put him in the wall. So gimme something I, no, gimme something to do. Sean. Go on an assignment or something. Okay. Sean, listen to me’s. Not a good idea. Okay. Like why the hell not? Because you’re drunk.

Wow. I, uh, I can’t believe it, I haven’t been this happy in a long time. You mean you care? I just… You just what? I, I don’t know what I’m gonna do about Talia. I mean, I really do like her, Johnny, but… It was never what you and I had. Nothing’s ever come close. Not for me. Not for me either. Oh Johnny, we were so lucky that this is happening now.

Before things got serious with Talia. But I’m gonna have to let her down easy. She’s really vulnerable right now.

Hey, you’re safe here for as long as you want. Anybody who comes through that door is gonna come through me. How does he figure to know this? Oh, honey. If it wasn’t for Harris, I would be dead right now. He rushed the woman before she could even get a shot off. Last time I saw this guy was in Seattle and he showed up with an exploding pizza.

Tried to take us all out. And the last time I saw him was when he crashed Stefan and Gabby’s engagement party and tried to kill the groom. I I’ve been brainwashed. And I’m sorry for everything I did. And I’m just, I’m just trying to move forward. The only reason I’m here is, is to help your mom.

Okay. Okay, then, tell me. Do you really think going on the run is a smart decision? The cops know what went down at Bayview. They know that you shot the woman in self defense. Okay, hold on. What? Look, there is something about EJ you don’t know. Look, he doesn’t even know it. What are you talking about? His mother is alive.

I had a nerve with that message, didn’t I? Good. Now stop wasting my time and tell me who was behind the hit. And I’ll talk to the DA. All you have to do is tell me who hired you to kill Ava Metalli. Do not answer that question.

How dare you tell me that I’m drunk when I’m most certainly not. I mean, what do you want me to do? me to walk a straight line? Or do you want me to stand on a foot? I can smell it on you. Look, I had a couple of drinks after the funeral, so what? A couple of drinks is not going to stop me from doing my job.

Get out of here, or I’m going to take your badge, and you’re going to be suspended. Okay? Get yourself together, or you’re going to lose this damn job. You know, you got a lot of nerve talking to me like that. Listen to me, okay? You told me you were going to get yourself together, alright? I can’t control you.

If you want to do this to yourself, that’s fine. You hear me? But think about what you’re doing to Belle. And what about your daughter?

Fine, fine, you know what? I’ll go. No, no, no, no, no. You’re in no shape to drive yourself. Can you make sure that Officer Brady gets home safely, please? I got work to do.

So you started seeing Susan? Yeah. A couple of weeks ago. And she told me that I wasn’t telling the truth about the accident. Which… I didn’t understand, I couldn’t make any sense of it, so Harris suggested that I have a session with Marlena, which I did. And I had a memory flash of the night of the car accident.

Look, right before it exploded, I remembered seeing Susan get out of the back seat and run away. I don’t know what happened. I must, I must have just blocked it out. But since then, since I remembered, I have seen Susan more times. I’ve had, I’ve had visions of her. But some… Now you’re saying they’re visions.

Susan has strange powers. Psychic powers. She has appeared to me more than once. And the last time it was earlier today. And listen, at first I thought it was a hallucination. But now, I am convinced it was the real Susan. And she’s trying to reach out to me. Yeah, and we, uh, figured out from a reference that Susan made that she might be in London.

So we need to go there. We need to find Susan because it is the only way to get EJ off of my back. You just escaped custody, Mom. How do you expect to get out of the country? That’s why you come in. Trip you are my only hope.

Mr. DiMera, what a pleasant surprise. I was just having a little trouble trying to convince your friend here to tell me who hired her to off Ava Vitale. Maybe you can fill in the blanks. You seem to be implying that I’m her employer. Well, why else would you rush in here and tell her to keep her mouth shut?

I said that because I’m her attorney.


Oh. Um, I didn’t mean to interrupt. No, no, you’re, you’re not. Johnny was just leaving. Thanks for coming by. Uh, yeah, absolutely. I’ll um, I’ll, I’ll, I’ll see you around, Chanel. And you too, Talia.

Here. They’re beautiful. I know, right? I got them at the flower cart in the square. And I just had to buy them for you. I’m guessing you missed my call, huh? Oh, I, I, I guess I did. Oh, I wasn’t saying anything. I was just saying how I wanted to come over. Because I just had to see you again. Last night was so much fun.

But don’t worry, I’m not going to make you go bowling two nights in a row. I was just thinking maybe we could watch a movie or bake something together. I know how long it’s been. Oh yeah, just hang on. Okay. Is something wrong?

The commissioner told me to take you home. Please get back in the car. I don’t want to go home, okay? Listen, you’re not going to get any trouble. Just say that I pulled rank. Seriously, go. Get out of here. It’s okay, officer. I’m his wife. I got this.

Wow. Look who’s here. Well, I didn’t know where you went. After Chelsea left, I’ve been trying to call you. What’s going on with that officer? Uh, Escava Vitali and Harris Michaels, they escaped Bayview tonight. And Rafe put out a call asking for backup, and I went to his location, and… He told me to get lost.

You wanted to work? Tonight? Like this? Why does everybody keep saying that?

You know what? I am such an idiot. I was just going on and on about what we could do tonight, and I’m assuming you already have plans. What is it? Something with your mom? No. Then what is it? Johnny, he, he didn’t just stop by. He came to tell me that he still has feelings for me.

Oh. Well, that must not have been easy for you. You know, to let him down after saying something like that. I didn’t.

You know what I would like? I would like to just be able to have a couple of drinks on a very difficult day like today without everybody freaking the hell out. You know why I’m reacting this way, Sean. And why Rafe did too, okay? You’ve been, you’ve been struggling and all the drinking, it’s just not helping anything.

It’s making it worse. Damn it, Belle, can you, can you at least try to understand what it’s like, what my life is like? I get these flashes, these images, these images of me holding a gun to my dad. And instead of, instead of just pointing it at his leg, I’ve got it pointed at his head. Okay? And now, now he’s in a coma, and that could be permanent.

And on top of that, my grandfather’s dead. I get it. I get it. I get that you blame yourself. And oh my God, Sean, that is so wrong. self destructive, and it’s just not true. You are not to blame. Listen, I have been doing some thinking. Oh, you’ve been doing some thinking, huh? Well, that’s, uh, that’s never a good thing.

Stop it. Just stop it. Just listen to me. If the therapy isn’t working, then maybe we should be considering, like, a, a, a residential facility. A rehab? No, no, Belle, no way in hell. No, I’m, I’m not an alcoholic, I keep telling you that, okay? Listen, I, I just want you to be somewhere where you can work through this in a safe environment.

Oh, okay, so you’re telling me that you think that I deserve to be in a mental hospital? No. I am telling you that I, I, you need more help than I can give you. Yeah, you can’t give me that help and you obviously can’t be honest with me either.

You’re her lawyer. You’ve got to be kidding. I’m not kidding at all. I’m a proud and active member of the bar. Hmm. Well, you must be psychic too. Because our friend here, she just got out of emergency surgery and she hasn’t even had the opportunity to call anybody. I do watch the evening news. This poor woman is a victim, who I’ll stand by in her time of need.

The state chose to put Ava Vitale in a mental facility instead of prison after she killed my mother, and this shooting is the inevitable result of that. I don’t know why. The police are harassing you, but you can rest assured that I will do everything in my power to get them off your back. That is, if I have your trust.

Well, obviously we need passports to get out of the country, but we can’t have our real names on those passports. Yeah, and I have contacts for that, but it’s gonna take a little time. Yes, you want me to be the person that they deal with. I can, I can handle that. But what happens in the meantime? Okay, well, until we can get the passports, we’re gonna need a place to hide out.

Well, that’s a problem. My brother lives here too, and he’s dating D. H. Trask. They hang out here sometimes. Yeah, that definitely is a problem. Yeah, and the cops are gonna be back here asking me more questions. I mean, it’s not safe for you here unless you can get those passports in the next couple hours. A couple hours?

It’s gonna take longer than that. No. It won’t.

What’s the matter? Don’t you want to take Mr. DiMera’s generous offer?

I don’t know you, Mr. DiMera, but I’m in no position to be choosy, so… If you can do anything to get me out of this situation, just do it. You heard her. This interview is over, so why don’t you put your energy into locating Ava Vitale. And remember, she’s armed and dangerous. Honey, you are making a big mistake.

I can blow big holes through your story and you know it. But you know what? The offer still stands. Just in case Mr. DiMera here doesn’t have your best interest at heart.

She scares me. Leave it to me. You did the right thing. Now tell me, why on God’s earth is Ava Vitale still breathing?

I can get you those passports you need right here, right now. How? Well, back in my ramen and boiled water days, I made fake IDs for underage teenagers. Nobody ever had a problem with them. Yeah, but there’s a big difference between a driver’s license and a passport. Even if you could reproduce the inside pages, you can’t magically come up with an embossed passport cover.

I don’t need to. No, I just need an actual passport that I can doctor. And I can cure you. I happen to have one. And I have another one. I’m telling you, if Wendy says she can do it, she can. Okay. Do we have any other options? Okay, Wendy. What do you need from us? Names. How about William Thacker and Anna Scott?

You just came up with those out of the blue? Well, actually, they’re Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts characters from Notting Hill, one of my favorite movies. Okay, then. Uh, I guess all we need now are… Pictures. Right?

I guess I walked in right before you could tell Johnny about us, right? Talia, that’s, that’s not what happened. I did. Tell Johnny how I feel yeah, but you just said please just let me finish, okay What I said was that I didn’t let him down

Oh, yeah, I I wasn’t expecting any of this when when you and I first started seeing each other I thought that that Johnny and I were just friends Yeah, but now he wants to be more than friend. Right. So do you. I do. Talia, Talia, you are such a good person. You, you have been through hell. And you still found a way to put your life back together.

And if the timing had been different… Okay, no, okay? You don’t have to say that. You don’t have to give me a pep talk, okay? I should have known everything was going way too well for me. It was just… Too good to be true. Okay, I don’t deserve you, Chanel. I know that. Hey, don’t say that. You, you deserve all the good things that are happening for you right now.

Just not you. I’m really sorry. Don’t be, okay? It’s my fault. I should’ve never told you how I felt about you in the first place.

When did I lie to you? I, I don’t know. I guess maybe it was just an oversight that you went, uh, and offered to help Phillip, and you didn’t even tell me he’s alive. Alright. Chloe asked me to become his lawyer, which meant that I couldn’t tell anyone that he was back. No, there are over, there are a million lawyers in this world.

No, no, of course, Phillip wants the one that he used to sleep with. What? That is ancient history. Yeah, well, you cheating on me every single time we have a problem, that’s very current. Oh, and let me think about this. Who was the last person? Oh, it was EJ. And why’d you do it? What, did you do it because you thought Phillip was dead?

Don’t do this. Oh, I know, I know, I know. I’m supposed to just be over the fact that you and EJ slept together. Just like I’m supposed to be over that I put my dad in a coma and that my grandfather’s dead. Is there anything else? Anything else you want me to add to the list of things that shouldn’t be bothering you?

Let’s not do this here. Can we go home? Wait, home? Hold on, you, but you just told me that you think that I deserve to be in a mental hospital. Wait, then where are you going? I’m going to go someplace where I’m not going to be judged by everything I do and everything I feel. Sean, please. Sean!

I tried to follow you, but you were too fast for me. Can you please, Sean, please just call me?

It’s mixed, but whatever it is, we need to take it slow. Yeah, no, I totally agree.

I should go.

Um, maybe we should hang out sometime. There’s a free concert at the park tonight. Japanese takeout jobs. Hey, good we got a goal. Yeah. You wanna go? Um, I’d love to. I have 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.

What am I doing? Come on. I know what happened back there. I know what happened back there.


EJ shows up at the hit woman’s hospital room with some lame story talking about he heard about her in the evening news. And then he says that he’s her attorney. Oh yeah, and uh, I assume she accepted? Oh yeah, and the first thing he told her was to stop talking to me. And when was the last time that EJ ever did something nice for someone he didn’t know?

You know, we’ll get a warrant to check his phone, see if he’s the one that left messages on this thing. You know, at least someone got somewhere tonight. By the time I got to that damn hotel, Ava and Michael’s had already taken off. Well, they’re gonna be really hard to find. As long as Ava still thinks she’s in danger from EJ.

Well, if we can’t find them, we’re just gonna have to track that bastard down by ourselves. I’m willing to work overtime on that.

So Ava had help getting the gun away from you. Another patient got in the way. It wasn’t just another patient. That was Harris Michael’s ex Navy SEAL. You’re the one who’s lucky to be alive. Believe me.

But if Ava thinks he is going to keep her safe from me, then she is in for a rude awakening.

Wow. This was not what I expected when we came here. Those work, right? Best fakes I’ve seen. I’ve seen a lot. Nice work. Yeah. Well, I, uh, I hate to say this, but we should probably hit the road, right, Mr. Thacker? Or should I call you Bill? Look, those passports are great, but they’re not going to protect you if EJ tracks you down.

Are you sure you’re making the best decision? I have to find Susan. Everything changes once I do.

Okay, you tell the cops that you saw me, but you couldn’t stop me from leaving, okay? It’s basically the truth. I’ll tell them I have no idea where you are. Which is also basically the truth.

Thank you. Both of you. Of course. You come back now, Mom. Safe. You know that’s the plan.

Oh, God. I love you, my son. I love you too, Mom.

Thanks again, Wendy. Of course. Good luck.
