Hang on, I’m coming.

Hey, Teresa, what are you doing here?

Hey, going somewhere? Yeah, Alex and I are flying to Greece tonight. Oh, yeah. I heard that’s where Victor was before his plane crashed. Mm hmm. Nobody knows what he was doing there, so we’re gonna go and try to figure it out. And why he destroyed his will. Well, well, that sounds like you’ve got a lot on your plate.

So, won’t stand in your way? Uh, hold on. Hold on. You, uh, you seem a little bummed. Think anything you want to talk about? No, I don’t want to hold you up anyway. My flight does not leave for a couple hours, so… Give it to me. What’s going on? Sean and I just, we just had a huge fight. Sorry. What about? Well, for starters, he’s drinking again.

If you’d rather be alone, I mean, I totally understand. No, no, you can join me. I just don’t think that I’d be very good company right now.

Trying to drown my sorrows away. I mean, that’s, that’s perfect, because that’s my plan too. And by all means, take a seat.

So, uh, what sorrows are you trying to drown? Heartbreak, with a side of humiliation.

I just got dumped tonight.

Uh, Chanel, I wasn’t expecting to see you again tonight. Well, I thought I’d surprise you. But if you’re busy, I can stop by tomorrow. Oh, don’t you dare. Because you and I… I have a lot to catch up on.

And then, for a while, I thought I was a priest. It’s a long story, but once again, it turned out to be nothing but a lie. I thought I had an identity issue. I’m telling you, it’s been a hell of a ride, spending most of your life not… Knowing who you really are, but then again, that’s something that you and I have in common.

Hmm. We did. And that’s all clear. You’re Mr. Robichaud. And I’m Timothy Dalton, a. k. a. James Bond. Um, uh… Nah, I’m putting you on. I’m more of a Sean Connery. Ha ha ha ha ha! I’m so glad to see you two are having fun getting reacquainted. Can you even believe this? I am actually having a conversation with… With my father, my real father.

Yeah. I’m so pleased. I’m so glad you found each other. Thanks to you, my dear. This one’s a keeper. Don’t I know it. You know, most people would’ve tried to put my memory back together by asking a few questions or something like that. If I failed, they would’ve just passed me off to somebody else. No, no, no, no, no.

I’m Dr. Marlene Adams. Oh. You know, I was a total stranger to you. And you offered to help me piece my life back together. And by God, she did it. Well, it wasn’t just me, you know. Black Patch had a lot to do with it. Well, I’m so grateful to both of you. You know, it’s getting a little late. You want to drive me back to my hospital?

Whoa, whoa, whoa. What are you talking about? You’re not going anywhere. Or not. No, hell no. You’re, you’re, you’re coming home with us.

Like sand through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives. I probably should have called first, but

I thought it’d be fun to surprise you. No, it’s cool. I just got out of the shower, but yeah, it’s cool. I love a good surprise. But how the hell did you know where I live? Oh, Stephanie told me. your phone number. You know Stephanie Johnson? She’s my cousin. Oh, wow. And she has no problem with us going out, by the way.

Which is why I came here. To nail down our dinner plans. Huh. Well, I told you I can’t do that just yet. Because I’m going to Greece. Right, yes. Yeah, you mentioned that on the phone. I just, I didn’t realize you were leaving so soon. Yeah, yeah, we’re leaving tonight actually. Just not too sure when we’re going to be back.

Okay. This is cool. I’ll play it by ear. But, um, just out of curiosity, why are you guys going to Greece? And when I suggested that Sean get help, he just lashed out. And he threw EJ in my face. Oh, God. I thought it was over that. Oh, I know. He was just picking a fight. But still, he was just so angry. How did you leave it?

I told him I wanted to go home and talk, and he just stormed off. I think I’m sorry. No, I know. I just, I, I thought that he was really committed to getting better. You know, I thought that we had turned a corner, and now I just, I just don’t know what to do, Brady. Oh, sweetie. Come here. It’s okay. It’s okay.

Alright, wait. What guy was stupid enough to dump you? Actually, it wasn’t a guy. Oh, oh, oh, I’m sorry. I’m sorry I didn’t know. Yeah, neither did I. Until I met Chanel, you know, even though it was under false pretenses, I ended up developing real feelings for her. And yeah, it was scary at first, but I don’t know, it just all ended up feeling right.

How long were you two together? A few weeks. Okay, I know how that sounds, but I thought it was a sorry something special, okay? And then tonight, out of the blue, she tells me that she’s getting back with her ex.

So, how’d it go with Talia after I left? I was honest with her. I told her that you didn’t just drop by, but that you told me you still have feelings for me. And she asked me how I let you down. And I told her that I didn’t. And then she started to… Get the picture. It must have been really hard for you. I know you care about her a lot.

Yeah, I hated hurting her. But what else could I do? I had to tell her the truth. Well, hey, I don’t want to impose. Well, how can you be in an imposition? You are my father. I won’t be in the way. We would love to have you as our guest. And besides, it’s going to give you a chance to meet Brady. And Brady is…

Your grandson. That’s right, you mentioned that before. And I can’t wait for you to meet Belle. I have kept you to myself long enough. It is time for you to go meet the rest of your family. I can’t wait.

That’s all you take the news. Not well. I, I tried to reassure her and comfort her, but she ran off before I could. Poor Talia. Yeah. Yeah, she was totally blindsided.

Honestly, I, I shouldn’t even be surprised that Chanel ditched me for Johnny. I mean, after all the horrible things that I did. Like, how could I ever think that Chanel would want a future with me? Wow! I feel like such an idiot. Hey, come on. Now, you are not an idiot. You’re not an idiot. Relationships, they’re…

They can get messy and unpredictable and, I mean, no matter how much you think you know somebody, you can’t always see everything that’s coming. Case in point, yesterday I thought that my wife and I, I thought that, I thought we were doing well. And then all of a sudden today, it’s, it was a big blow up. Well, what’d you guys fight about?

I mean, you don’t have to tell me. You don’t want to. No, I mean, I don’t mind. It’s like, she just… She doesn’t agree with my drinking. Yeah, I mean, she gives me zero sympathy, zero. It’s like, she doesn’t even attempt to try to just, try to understand what it is that I have been going through. I mean, all she does is she attacks me, and then she goes and, she tells me that I need to go to rehab.

I, I, I, I know, I know that that means well. I do, I just, I don’t want her to fix me. I just, I want her to accept what I feel. It’s just, it’s just unrelenting, gut wrenching, soul searing guilt. I get my, my grandfather, my grandfather’s dead, and my father is in a coma, and he may never wake up. And, you know, whether it’s rational or not, I just…

I feel like, I feel like I’m the one that’s responsible for that. Sean, I’m so sorry. That’s a lot to deal with. Yeah, thank you. For what? For, for being the first person that doesn’t try to convince me that it’s not my fault.

It means a lot to me.

I should have seen this coming. Oh, come on, Belle. I mean, Sean was here this morning, and he seemed fine. Yeah, but then we went to Victor’s funeral, and as soon as we got there, he was completely on edge. He just sat there like a stone the whole time, and then, Brady, he didn’t even get up to say anything. And then after that, he went to the pub to go pack Chelsea a lunch before she left, and so I just…

lost track of him. I mean, how could I not know that he was drinking? Don’t, don’t, don’t blame yourself. Look, you’re doing the best you can. Am I? Yeah. Or do I just want to believe that my husband’s out of the woods so I have completely ignored everything that I knew was true? What does that mean? I just, it was just all too much too fast.

Lifting the psych hold and him going back to work. I mean, I just. I wanted to be supportive, right? So I went with it and now Sean is completely backslid and he’s pushing me away again. Oh, Phil. I’m glad you’re here. I was about to call you. Oh, about what? Well, there’s somebody your father and I would like you to meet.

Do you remember me talking about the John Doe at the hospital? Yeah, uh, is that the guy at the hospital that couldn’t remember who he was? Yeah, well, your father figured it out. His name is Timothy Robichaud. Yo, yo, Yo Ling is alive? No, no, no, no, that, that man was an imposter. Wait, what? What do you mean? I know it’s a…

Welcome home. Isabella. Brady, I would like you to meet your grandfather.

Are you going to Greece for work? No, I’m going because of my Uncle Victor.

That’s probably Brady. He’s supposed to be picking me up, but he’s a little bit early.

Hey, can I help you? Are you Alex Kariakis? Yeah, I am. And you are? Agent Andrew Donovan, ISA. Andrew? Teresa! Like, do you know each other? Uh, kind of. He’s, he’s my big brother. How did you know that I was here? I didn’t, I actually came to see Alex.

So once Timothy remembered that Joseph be a k a, yo Ling had switched his dog tags, all of this just fell into place. I mean, this is incredible. After all this time. No, I’m telling you, it’s fate. Fate brought him home to us. I don’t, I don’t even know where to begin. I mean, there’s so much, so much to catch up on.

Well, why don’t we start from the beginning? Tell me about yourself, Brady. Um, wow, I, I run a company, uh, that my dad started called Basic Black. I, I have two children, Tate, who is in boarding school in California, and my little girl, Rachel, who is actually here in Salem. Oh, how wonderful. How about you, Belle?

Uh, well, I am a lawyer, and I have one daughter. Her name’s Claire, and she lives in South Africa. Are you married? Uh, yeah, I am. My husband, Sean, is a detective. Oh, lovely to meet him. Call him. Get him over here, Tink. No, no, he can’t make it. He’s, um, tied up at the moment. Uh, you must think that I’m weird, that I don’t want anyone to alleviate my guilt.

What? No! I, look, I get it, okay? And dude, there isn’t no question that Colin manipulated me into doing things I didn’t want to do. What’d I do? I did it anyway. But, I took responsibility for it. Yeah, yeah, exactly. See, I agree with you. I agree. It’s like, I didn’t mean to shoot my dad. I, I, Look, it was a terrible mistake.

Yes, I agree. But, it doesn’t change the fact that I still did it. And you gotta own it. Yeah, exactly. You’re just owning your mistakes.

So what do you say I order us another round, huh? Or, you could call your wife and have her come pick you up. You know, try to fix things. That’s the last thing that I want to do right now. Now I feel kind of bad. You know, if I had just kept my mouth shut, you and Talia would still be happy. No. No, Johnny, I’m glad you told me how you feel.

If you hadn’t, I would have just kept denying what’s, what’s been in my heart.

Which is… What? I never stopped loving you.

And I never… Stopped loving you either. So

what are you doing in Salem, sis? I, uh, I came back from Victor’s funeral, which is actually where I met Alex, and we kind of hit it off. Only you would pick up a guy at a funeral.

But it you were all about Brady, and how much you missed him, and wanted to try to get back together. Yeah, well, I floated that idea by Brady, and he wasn’t into it, so… So you let it go? Sort of. Hmm. Janie, Theresa, what are you up to? Mm mm. So, Mr. Donovan, what did you want to see me about? Well, uh, I heard that you and Brady Black are going to Greece.

So I thought I’d stop by to remind you that your uncle’s plane crash is still an active investigation. And it would be best if you let the ISA handle it. Of course. And we’re not trying to get in your way, trust me. Just trying to figure out why my uncle took a detour to the old country without telling anybody.

If it had anything to do with his will. His will? Yeah. Apparently he called his lawyer from Greece and told him to destroy it. And then this morning, Vivian Almayne shows up in Salem claiming that her divorce from my uncle Victor wasn’t finalized, therefore making her the sole heir to his fortune. My dad looked into it, and it’s true.

Oh my God. Poor Maggie. You have my word, man. Brady and I will stay out of the agency’s way. But if there is anything that you can tell me that might help figure out why my uncle was in Greece, that would be very much appreciated.

I just can’t believe the timing of all of this. I mean, one grandfather laid to rest this morning, and now Belle and I are reunited with… Another grandfather. I’m sorry for your loss, Brady. Thank you. Bill? Was he your grandfather too? Oh, no. Um, he was my father in law for a little while, but that’s a story for another day.

I’ll look forward to that. John, didn’t you say you had a third child too? Well, that’s a fact. His name’s Paul. You’re going to love him because he was a big league ball player. I know that you’re a fanatic of the game. Fanatic, yeah. Does Paul live in, uh, Salem? No, he’s in San Francisco. But I gave him a call, I told him all about you, and hopefully you’re going to meet him sometime soon.

But in the meantime, I’m going to show you some pictures. Now, why do that when you got the real deal right here? Oh my god! Come on, kid! What a surprise! Look at that! What a nice surprise. Oh, honey. It’s so good to see you. Like

I said, the plane crash is an ongoing investigation, so I can’t say much. Oh, come on, Andrew. Clue him in. Do it for Tate, Victor’s his great grandfather. Plus, you can’t let that witch Vivian screw over Maggie.

I can tell you this much. Victor met with a man named Constantine Melionis. He owns a restaurant outside of Athens. Do you know anything about what that meeting was? Well, as far as our investigation goes, it wasn’t very helpful. But Constantine might be of some use to you. Thank you, Agent Sullivan. I appreciate it.

You’re welcome. Just do me a favor and stay out of trouble. Ah, I’ll try. So, bro, did you come all the way from D. C. just to give Alex a warning? No, I came to see my boyfriend. Oh, Paul’s in town? He’s here to see his family.

This is great! What are you doing here? Why didn’t you tell me I have a new grandfather and think I’m not going to be on the first flight out? It is such a pleasure to meet you. I’m Paul. Paul, so you’re the big time ball player, huh? Well, I’m coaching now, but I used to be a pitcher. Yeah, I had a good arm, right?

Yeah, I guess that’s in the genes, huh? Paul, you might owe your career to Timothy here. Wait, does that mean I get a cut of your own salary, huh? Counselor, huh? Am I got a case here? Well, he definitely is your father. And what a joy and a relief that is. For me, too. I assume you told him about Yoling, the man who Joseph Bell became?

That was one messed up dude. To say the least. The man that kidnapped my dad because he wanted his blood. What? Yeah, he claimed he had some rare disease where he needed a transfusion. Never mind the fact that the procedure was potentially deadly. And he kidnapped Paul also, wanted to brainwash him to head up his cult of assassins.

The Phantom Alliance. Yeah, but I was able to break free, and down the hall, I found him in a laboratory, some strange contraption strapped to his head, and, um, a couple of armored guards almost, uh, stopped us, but if it wasn’t for Doc and my partner Steve coming in the nick of time, it… Oh, John, I’m so sorry.

I had to go through that. Which I couldn’t have saved you. Hey, no regrets, because the important thing is, we are all together right now. Yes, Dad’s right. We’re finally reunited, and we are so grateful that you’re here.

So you don’t know. Okay, I, okay, I know, I know Bella’s an excellent, she’s an excellent lawyer, but… You know, as a wife, as a wife she’s made plenty of mistakes, plenty, and uh, the most recent was with EJ DiMera. Well, what do you mean? She um, she, she cheated on me with him. Okay, look, I know that we were, we’re legally separated, but I mean, come on, still, she’s still my wife, right?

Yeah. And it’s not the first time that she’s cheated. Uh, God. Sean, I’m so sorry. And you must be feeling a lot of pain right now. But it obviously didn’t break you, okay? I mean, you guys are still together. That right there says a lot in itself. Yeah, yeah, no, I guess. I just, I just, I feel like, after everything that she’s put me through, I feel like it’s only fair that she just, she lets me have a little bit of space, you know, to, to like, fall apart a little bit.

I mean, and without the guilt, especially. You know, the least that she could do is just like, No, let me feel what I feel.

You wanna, uh, go up to my room? Go easy, tiger. We just got back together. Whoa, whoa, I just was, I didn’t want anyone to walk in on us while we were kissing. Uh huh. I wasn’t implying that we should, you know. Take things a little further. Whatever you say, G. Okay, alright, fine. I admit, I was hoping that we could, you know, make love.

But that’s just because, I don’t know, I’m a little, I’m afraid to believe that this is real. I just wanted to do whatever I could to… Keep you from changing your mind. I’m not gonna change my mind. I know what I want.

It’s you. Thank you for backing me up with your brother. You probably never would have given me that lead about Constantine if you weren’t here. No. No problem. I like making myself useful. Yeah? Well, I like dinners. And I’m going to treat you to a very special one as soon as I get back. Well, why wait? Sorry?

Oh, I was just thinking. Maybe I could be useful to you and Brady in Greece. And there’s tons of really nice restaurants there, ISA.

Not just through Andrew, my dad’s the director of the entire organization, so… I could call in a few favors. And I’m excellent at solving puzzles. I’ll go get packed. Therese, hang on a second. As much as I would love for you to come with us, I do not think Brady’s gonna like that. So why don’t we stick to our original plan and take you out to dinner as soon as I get back?

I sound okay? Yeah, of course. Yeah? Yeah. Good. Good luck to you both and, uh, I guess I’ll see you when you get back. Thank you. Thank

you. So, just to be clear, we definitely are not taking it any further tonight, right? You really like that euphemism, don’t you? I’m just trying to be a gentleman. And I appreciate that. So, no. No, we are not taking things any further. No, not tonight. Not tonight. Okay, fine. Then, what should we do instead? Um, we should watch a movie.

I know just the one. Oh, wow. Don’t worry, there’s no hockey masks or chainsaws. It’s called What’s Up, Doc? And you’re sure it’s not a hoax? Yes, I’m sure. In fact, it is a love story. Oh. Well, in that case…

I’m in. You must think that I’m a terrible, terrible husband. What? No, believe me, I’m the last person to judge, okay? Do you know I’ve been in one serious relationship in my whole entire life? Yeah, I mean, come on, that’s because you’re too busy becoming a brilliant actor. Yeah, and? I now know how to practice medicine.

Guess what? I don’t know how to love anybody, though. No, seriously, I’m defective. Damaged goods. No, come on, are you not? What’s a human? You did not. I never wanted to play this part.

Oh, come on. You got your air if you fell out of a plane. Oh, jokes are your son. bigger. Paul, catching on. I noticed you were strangely quiet when Timothy asked about Sean. Bigger and vigor and bigger. That’s what I, something wrong. Half was getting bigger. He got drunk again. Oh, I’m so sorry. Did he threaten to hurt himself?

No, it’s nothing like that. I just think that Victor’s funeral was too much for him. And, um, You know, it’s clear that his behavior It’s showing he needs more help, and I said that to him, which did not go over well, and so he got really mad and stormed off. I’m sorry. Would you like me to reach out to him?

No, it’s okay. I tried. He’s not responding. I just think I need to give him some time to cool off and, um, I’ll go look for him later. I think for Now,

I didn’t even meet Paul until I was an adult, so I missed out on the whole experience of raising him. Like I did with you. But Dad and I definitely made up for lost time. I couldn’t have asked for a more supportive and loving father. And I second that. Aw, thanks kids. And Dad even came and visited, uh, last year in San Francisco for Gay Pride.

Gay Pride? Are you, uh, A gay. Yes. Well, I got that. I was going to ask if you were married. No, no, uh, but I do have a boyfriend. And here he is now. Hey, Andrew.

Andrew, this is my grandfather, Timothy Robichaud. And Timothy, this is Andrew. Andrew Donovan. It’s an honor to meet you, Mr. Robichaud. Uh, Paul was so excited when he heard the news, he couldn’t wait to meet you. Hope I lived up to the hype. Oh, and then some. We couldn’t ask for a better addition to our family.

Truly, we are so blessed to have you in our lives. Well, I’m a little overwhelmed with your kindness and generosity. You know, you’ve just… Welcome me into your house. After, after I got out of the war, I was alone for a long time. And now, after all this time, to be surrounded by so many loving faces, it overwhelms me.

I think my heart’s about to burst. I think you better get used to it. Because with this family, that love is just gonna keep on a comin

I think we need to preserve this moment. Why don’t you all get in, I’ll take your first picture as a family.

Alright people, get together, come on.

Alright, on three, say, family. Perfect. One, two, three. Family!

I thought for sure Sean would be here.

Oh my

god, I know, right? Do you have any idea how close I was to pulling the whole thing off? Hey, don’t you know who I am? Yup, yup.

What’s up, guys? Cheers. Cheers. Oh, mm mm. Wait a second. Doesn’t your sister live here too? It’s her place! Well, I hope she doesn’t mind that we’re gonna have a little party. I mean, because I wouldn’t want to piss off my partner. Well, listen, uh, you have nothing to worry about. She’s pulling all nighter at work, so…

So, that means we have the place to ourselves.


Uh huh. Okay, this is a classic. You’re gonna love it. What’s up, Dot? So, is this a forbidden love story about a patient and a surgeon? Um, no. It is a romantic screwball comedy. And like I said, you’re going to love it, I promise. Okay, wait, wait, wait. First, does it have a happy ending?

It sure does. Good. Man,

I missed you. I missed you too. I’m so glad we could meet up in Salem. Although, your reason for being here is much more exciting than mine. So, how’d it go with Alex Kiriakis? Hmm. Fine. But guess who was at his place when I showed up? My sister, Teresa. What was she doing there? Uh, apparently they met at Victor Kiriakis funeral and hit it off.

So, what, they were just hanging out? That’s how she made it seem. But something tells me that she has a hidden agenda. Why do you say that? Because she always does.

Let’s go. Let’s

Oh, check this out. Teresa’s brother Andrew stopped by. I guess he’s in town visiting his boyfriend. Yeah, yeah, he’s dating my brother. Yeah, I was just with him. Oh, small world. Anyway, he gave me a lead about Uncle Vic. I think it’s gonna really help us. I’ll fill you in on the way.


Marlena, why don’t you join us? Oh, thanks. I will, as soon as I get your room ready.

John, it’s been wonderful meeting everybody and everything, but… But what? Well, I mean, you have things to do, you got work, you got obligations, and I don’t want to pull you away from… No, you’re not pulling me away from anything. There’s no place I’d rather be than right here, right now with you, and just… You know, I’m getting to know you a little bit better, if that’s okay with you.

Oh, are you kidding? No place I’d rather be than right here with my family. No, we all feel the same way. It’s okay if I, if I call you dad. Are you kidding? I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Oh, Dad. You’re a big liar. I get it from you.
