Ow! What the hell was that for? Oh, don’t you play innocent with me. I just told you what it’s for. You’re cheating on me with your wife! I don’t even know… What are you talking about? Oh, please spare me. I just got an earful from Gwen. She wouldn’t shut up about how the two of you have been shagging your asses off.

Like you’re a horny Popeye who just had a huge serving of spinach. So stop playing the coquettish ingenue and tell me the truth. Have you been playing me this whole time?

You already knew that Dimitri was cheating on you with Leo? Of course I knew. Matthew may be a world class dissembler, but those lustful looks that he’d been giving my husband… I’d have to be bloody brain dead not to have noticed. So, you’ve been dissembling as well? Pretending to be in love with Dimitri when you knew all along that he was crazy for Leo?

Actually, no.

I admit, yes, in the beginning I was, um, a bit of a naive fool. When Dimitri proposed to me and I agreed to be his wife, I thought, Wow, your luck has really turned around. You’re about to marry the man of your dreams.

But I am relieved to report that I have jumped off of cloud nine and I have landed safely. And I’m now back to being my cynical, misanthropic


Why was my grandfather meeting with you, Mr. Malonis? Oh, please, call me Constantine. So your grandfather did not tell you? No, he did not. He only told his wife that he was going to visit his son, Bo. But Bo doesn’t live anywhere near Greece. Which is why we were shocked when his plane went down in the Mediterranean.

Obviously, he didn’t want any of us to know where he was. What was he doing in Greece?

Room service.

Finally, it’s about damn time.

Oh my god!

Daddy! Like

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

I have to say, it feels pretty damn good to have Dimitri right where we want him. Thanks to us brilliantly uncovering his deep, dark secret. A torrid love affair with his wife’s best friend? And pretty soon, we will have DiMera in the palm of our hand. But why stop there? Why not make Dimitri hand over the von Leuschner money, too?

Playing you? Leo, what does that even I just told you! Gwen spent all morning rhapsodizing about your round the clock shagging, going into excruciating detail, bragging about positions I’ve never even heard of. Me! It’s a lie. She’s lying. She’s lying. Wait, what? The only physical intimacy that Gwen and I have shared in the last 24 hours is when she handed me the TV remote last night.

My hand grazed hers for a second. That’s it. Really? Yes, really. I swear.

Well, that doesn’t make any sense. Why would she lie? So when did you figure all this out?

Well, when Leo turned up to my honeymoon. Claiming that he was there for some secret Madonna concert. It is the Madonna concert. You know, that’s when I started to get suspicious. Matty fancies himself a material girl, but it was all too coincidental. Huh. But before that? No idea? No. As I said, yes, I was a naive fool.

But then once my suspicions were aroused, I started to look back on all the little moments where I should have bloody been one of the two of them. Should have seen them for the lying snakes that they are.

Daddy! Oh my God! It’s so good to see you! It’s been forever! Come here. It’s so good to see you too, my darling. But, what are you doing here? I was told Alex and Brady were staying in these rooms. Yeah, yeah, they are. They should, um, actually be back soon. And you didn’t ask my question. And it doesn’t take an experienced ISA agent to figure out what a father would instinctively know.

This is about Brady, isn’t it?

I did not plan to meet with Victor. He just appeared and I could tell something was very wrong. Well, he’s been really upset about his son. Yes, his son. So sad. He just come from a visit with him and it was evident the trip was very difficult for him. Yeah, I’m sure. We are all friends, I’ve known Victor for a long time.

So I could tell something else was on his mind. Something other than his ailing son.

So you want to go after Dimitri’s inheritance, too? Why not? I mean, we’ve got him right where we want him. And the best part is, if we get our hands on that full militia money, we wouldn’t have to share it with any single member of this family. We get the whole enchilada, baby.

Well… When Leo turned up to my honeymoon with that flimsy, ridiculous excuse about being there for a Madonna concert, that’s when my antenna went up, and as I said, that is when I started to think about all the little moments. Ah. Please, do go on. Well, the first one was right after we got engaged. It’s just I haven’t heard from Dimitri today, which is a bit odd, don’t you think, given that we, we just got engaged.

Oh! Oh my god, my team,



a terrible mistake. a confession to make. The reason you haven’t heard from Dimitri is because… He’s been with me. So… Leo told you that Dimitri was with him? Yeah. And he very quickly explained why. And it made sense at the time. Once, I was on board with the wedding. Your groom shared with me a capital S secret.

What kind of secret? Well, it’s really more of a surprise. For you. For the wedding. You know, but as strange as I thought it was, two of them concocting this surprise for my wedding, I just kept telling myself I was being paranoid. Like all those times when Dimitri wasn’t interested in making love to me.

Well, even if nothing happened between you and Gwen last night, you can’t say that the two of you never… Ugh, God, I can’t even say the word. Which is shag, by the way, because that’s what Gwen claims you do night and day, 24 7, round the damn clock. Leo, she is my wife. She does believe that we got married because of love.

If she and I never shagged, well then I suppose that jig would be up, don’t you? Fine. I get it. At least tell me you’re not enjoying it. Hey. I swear to you, I am sleeping with Gwen out of obligation. I’m sleeping with you because… Because what?

Because I love you.

But if we take Dimitri’s shares and his inheritance, what incentive does he have to keep us quiet? I mean, it’s Blackmail 101, Gabby, right? He has to have something to lose in order for us to exploit him. I hate to say it, but you may be right. Maybe. I mean, there has to be something we can do to get a bigger payday out of this.

Look, I love the way your mind works, but in this particular instance, I don’t think we can afford to be greedy.

And not only was Dimitri just completely uninterested in having sex with me, but… He was the very first person that I went and told. I’m sorry, honey. I really do think you’re overreacting. That’s easy for you to say. You’re not the one that he refused to have sex with.

Bloody errands, indeed. I mean, I, I touched him, and he pulled away. Oh my God, Matty, I’m… Why wouldn’t he want to have sex with the woman that he supposedly loves?

God, that Matty, that… Clever little schemer that he is. He did manage to mollify me. Somewhat. Just as he did when I walked into the room to find Dimitri in his underwear. Well, this all must seem rather strange, Gwen, but I assure you there is a perfectly reasonable explanation. I’m waiting. Well, I… Dimitri does not have a proper suit for tomorrow, so I convinced him to try on one of mine.

You have plenty of suits. Yeah, but they’re also blah. I told him he needed something special, something with a little pizzazz. You know, after all, this is a once in a lifetime event. I knew Matthew wasn’t being completely honest with me, but… I thought I knew why. Come on. You honestly thought that I would believe that he would fit into one of your medium suits?

This one’s a woman’s large. It doesn’t matter what size it is. You didn’t want to see Dimitri in it, you wanted to see him out of it. What are you suggesting? That you wanted to see my fiancé in his underwear. I’m

so stupid, aren’t I?

I know that Matty is always keen to have crushes on straight men, but still I should have… I should have known. Especially when Matthew Perry came into the picture. What?

You… You love me. Me? I do. I suppose I only realized it when that lawyer Roth said he could see it so clearly. These feelings that I have for you, they go so far beyond just attraction or lust. But it’s those two, right? Yes. Yes, it is those two. But what I feel for you is so much more than that. It’s missing you when you’re not around.

It’s missing your smile and your laugh. It’s wanting to share everything with you. Above all, it’s… It’s just wanting to make you happy. So yeah, I think it bears repeating Leo Stark, I love you.

I love you too, Dimitri.

I knew you hadn’t really gotten over Brady, but to chase him all the way to Greece? Who says I chased him? Okay, fine, I followed him. But that’s because I’m helping him and Alex with their investigation. What, you don’t think I can? No, I, I know you can. But apparently they don’t want your help or else you’ll be out investigating with them right now.

Oh, Theresa, darling, you are a brilliant young woman with a good heart. Which is why I hate to see you chasing someone who doesn’t appreciate that. If Brady can’t understand how wonderful you are, then he doesn’t deserve you.

So, my grandfather seemed worried about something besides Bo. Yes, he did. But when I asked him about it, he got very quiet. Quiet? Um, Constantine, my grandfather called his attorney. To have his will destroyed. This was this was surprising to us. We didn’t know anything about that. Did he mention anything about that to you?

No, he did. Don’t say anything to me about the will.

But he did mention a letter.

So what did Victor say about this letter? Only that it was of great importance to him. Then we shared a toast of Ouzo, and he left. Excuse me for a moment. Of course.

That can’t be it. Can it? I mean, do you really think Uncle Vic came all the way out here just because of some letter? I don’t know. I mean, we both know when, when that man said… His mind is something, I mean, I was, hold on a minute, Kayla, Kayla told me when Bo had her captive in that wine cellar at Granddad’s old house that she found a box full of old letters.

Look, I know you’re right, Daddy. Okay, I, I know Brady doesn’t deserve me, and I should have enough self respect to move on, and believe me, I’ve tried, you know, I’ve had other boyfriends, and I just can’t help comparing them to Brady, and None of them measure up. Oh, darling. But I’m trying to play it cool, okay?

I swear, actually. Brady thinks I have a thing for Alex. Which I don’t. Alex Kiriakis? He’s Brady’s cousin. Yeah, so? Well, that rather depends on how far you’re planning to take this deception. Well, I don’t know how far I’m planning on taking it, and… You know, Alex is really cool, so he’s handsome, and he’s rich, and it’s not like it’s going to be a hardship for me.

Sweetheart, if, if you’re planning to have a fling with Alex just to make Brady jealous… I’m not really planning anything, I’m just…

I just thought, I don’t know, I’m holding on to hope, you know? That maybe, maybe if Brady spends enough time with me, that he’ll realize I’ve changed, and… And then maybe he’ll fall in love with me again.

Matthew Perry. Chandler himself. Oh, I didn’t tell you. How? How? I can’t help but wonder, who is this mystery man who’s lying in bed naked waiting for you? According to your contacts, his initials are MP. Ah, yes, MP. Matthew Perry. What? The actor from Friends? What? Who? Chandler? No, no. It’s a guy that I met on

I know what you were thinking. Oh no, I don’t think you wanna know what I’m thinking. Okay. Yeah. Fine, fine. But see, at that point I thought that Matti had his secret mp, and so I just stopped. I stopped worrying about Dmitri and Matt. Even after he interrupted our wedding? And then, on our honeymoon? Why are you here?

Feel free to answer any time now. You mean, why did I fly here, to Iceland, to surprise you, on your honeymoon? Yes. Well, isn’t it obvious? No, I’m afraid not. I’m here… Because today is Madonna’s birthday! Hang on, so you’re telling me you flew all the way out here to Iceland to tell me that it’s Madonna’s birthday?

Would that be strange? That would be insane! Well, yeah, because I did not come just to share that news, obviously. Hello? Matty? Why did you come? Because it’s, it’s, it’s… The thing is, it’s not just any old birthday. Madge is turning 65! Quite a milestone, right? And to celebrate, she’s giving a super secret concert.

Private show, very exclusive. I believed him at first. But then… But the more I thought about it, the crazier it seemed. I mean, I had no proof that anything was actually going on.

But that is until the very next day, when… Leo came into my room. So, torn up over Victor’s death, or he was pretending to be, where I popped out to get him a nice little Icelandic treat. And then, when I came back… Stop it, stop it, stop! Stop! What if Gwen comes back and finds out you were as gay as a Cher collage?

You can tell her you were just consoling me.

I’ll be quick.

And then I remembered. The day I found Leo hiding someone in his room.

What was that? What was what? Noise from the loo. I didn’t hear anything. You liar. You’re hiding somebody in there, aren’t you?

And I know exactly who it is. You were

sexting with yesterday. Remember, I saw your phone. I saw his initials, MP. As in Matthew, not the actor from Friends, Perry. 20 points. MP is not coming out because he doesn’t want you to see him. Why not? Because he’s a married

man. So then I knew the truth. MP did not stand for Matthew Perry. Ah, Sono Chandler. Knives Chandler. Okay, so what does MP stand for?

You’re seriously considering marrying that Teutonic twat? You don’t even know him. Well, enough, in the biblical sense. You slept with him once, and now you’re thinking of tying the knot? What, does he have a magic penis?

Magic penis? Exactly.

Okay, now that that’s settled. What did you mean before you said we’ve got trouble? Ah, yes, right, that. Okay, um, brace yourself. Oh, no. Oh, no. Oh, no. She’s carrying your child, isn’t she? The two of you are going to be bound together forever, raising Dimitri Jr. No, stop, please. Gwen is not pregnant. Oh, okay. Thank God.

So what kind of trouble do we have? Gabby and Stefan have discovered that we’re sleeping with each other behind Gwen’s back, and they’re using it as blackmail. You’re joking. That’s a joke. You’re joking, right? Not joking. Well, how could this be? We have been so careful, so discreet. How could they have figured it out?

Well, apparently they found a hotel receipt, proof that I paid for your room in Iceland. But that doesn’t mean that we’re… And they got that little brat Rachel to confirm it. Apparently she… Saw us having a little sleepover.

I covet the von Leuchtturm money as much as you do. But I think we need to stay focused on our original plan. If Demi When Dimitri gives us his shares, and Megan’s, Gabby, we are going to have a huge block at Temera. And we will almost be guaranteed to be the deciding votes. So if Chad and EJ want any kind of say They will have to kowtow to us.

I admit, the idea of EJ groveling for our approval does have a certain appeal. And if we’re strategic about it, maybe, eventually, we could run the whole company. And then… We can kick E. J. out on his ass.

Dammit, there are far too many nosy, obnoxious children wandering around that house. Right, well we probably should have recognized that before taking any chances because now Gabby and Stefan are demanding that I hand over my shares at DiMera plus my mother’s or they’re gonna tell Gwen everything. Well now I am officially schvitzing.

Please don’t tell me they want your inheritance too. Oh no, God no. Just the shares. Although I’d much rather not part with those either. What are we gonna do? There’s only one thing we can do. Which is? Kill them. Kill them right. Wait, what?

So… After I walked in on Dimitri and Leo on my honeymoon, no less, I finally knew the truth.

But I couldn’t figure out who I was angrier with, my so called husband or my so called BFF.

Angry and terribly hurt, as I’m sure you can imagine. Yeah. And I’m sure that flight home was so much fun. Oh, that was um, that was definitely a challenge to sit there for 10 bloody hours and not be able to strangle them both.

You know, as angry as I was, I couldn’t figure out why Dimitri wanted to marry me. Only to have an affair, right afterwards, with a man.

That is, until we came home here after our honeymoon and Dimitri sent me up there to unpack and he stayed down here with you. So you mean that you decided to do some eavesdropping, yes, Kristen?

Ah, correction. When we get our windfall, baby. Yeah, and that is only gonna happen if you convince this barrister, Mr. Roth, that your marriage is legit. Trust me, I can handle it. Mmm, can you? Because he called just before you got here and he was very eager to see you and Gwen. So, nephew, how are you gonna keep Gwen from finding out about your being an heir to a fortune when she has to meet the man who holds

the So you were planning to split the von Leuschner money with Dimitri all along, were you? Gwen, I had no idea that Dimitri was betraying you. Well, at least not to the… Egregious extent that he was. You see, he told me that he was sleeping with Leo only to keep him quiet. Hang on, Sue. You’re, you’re, you’re telling me that, that he doesn’t have feelings for Matty?

That he was just sleeping with him out of desperation? Oh, no. No, no, no, I, that’s what I thought, um, but Dimitri just told me that wasn’t the case. That what he and Leo have, it’s the real thing, they’re in love.

Right, kill Stefan and Gabi, ha ha, good one. Oh, I’m serious. You can’t be serious! Stefan is your uncle, Gabby’s your aunt, I think. So what? I barely know these people. Still, that’s like two less gifts under the Christmas tree. Not to mention it’s a horrific and heinous crime. Not to mention that not only am I schvitzing right now, but I actually feel like my head is going to explode, and oh god, you can’t be serious.

You are serious. Leo. You forget who I am. I nearly took out half of Salem with a peacock, remember? Yes, but that was during your world domination era. You’ve moved on to your gentleman of leisure, afternoon sex, and reality TV era. Right. As far as you’re concerned, I have. And you really don’t have to be any part of this, okay?

But I will be damned if I’m gonna let two newly discovered relatives ruin everything for me. So I’m gonna do everything I possibly can to make sure they do not. But all you have to do is sit back, keep your mouth shut, and pray. As

much as I wanted that Von Leuschner money, if we use Demetri’s shares to take control of DiMera, then we won’t have to share the pie. Or the enchilada. Or anything else. The whole buffet will be ours. Do you really think that Uncle Victor came all the way here for a box of letters? I mean, the guys probably sent hundreds of letters.

Well, these were obviously important to him. Alex, there were a bunch that he had sent to Caroline Brady. And she sent them back to him, marked return to sender. She was Bo’s mother. They just came from seeing Bo. My apologies. Oh, no, please, please. Uh, you have a business to run. We came unexpected. There is no need for an invitation when family is concerned.

And that’s what Victor was to me. So you, his nephew and grandson, you are both always welcome here. And if there is anything you need… Um, actually, actually, we were talking and we think that that letter that was very important to him might be at his childhood home. You said you knew the family. You know where that home is?

Of course I do. Victor liked me to keep an eye on things for him. I would be happy to show you. Listen, just like you look after me, Daddy, I gotta look after you, and that briefcase has got to go. I’m gonna order you a new one ASAP. No, no, no, this isn’t mine, it’s Victor’s. They, um, they recovered it from the wreckage.

They established it was in no way related to the crash, and that it just contains his personal effects. Some papers of a personal nature, legal documents, that sort of thing. I thought maybe Alex and Brady would like to take it home to Maggie. Yeah, yeah, of course. Uh, and I’ll, I’ll make sure they get it.

You can just leave it here with me. And hey, you know what? I ordered room service. There’s definitely plenty to share with you. Oh, I, I’m sorry, sweetheart. No, I, I really can’t stay. But please remember what I said about finding a man who, who’s worthy of you, hmm? Yeah. Okay, from here. Oh, I love you, Jelly Bean.

I love you too, Daddy.

Are you thinking what I’m thinking? That we don’t make an appearance at work and we get into that bed and not come out for the rest of the day? Why don’t we put that off until tomorrow? Because I think we’ve given Dimitri enough time to stew. Why don’t we go in for the kill? Yes ma’am.


I better go. Wait, you’re gonna go do it now? What? No, not now. No, these things take lots of planning. But I should go see Gwen. Wouldn’t want her to get suspicious. I’ll see you, my love.


See you.

Okay, that’s it. Okay, where are you going? Where do you think I’m going? I’m going to confront my so called husband. Okay, hold on. No, no, no, no, no. I think that you and I should turn the tables around on him. What are you saying? Are you saying that you and I should join forces and get back at Leo and Dimitri for what they did to us?

What do you say?


say let’s get him.

This was the wine cellar you mentioned. Do you have any idea where the letters might be? Kayla said that they were in an old metal box. Could this be it right here? Could be. I don’t know, I don’t see anything else.

Well, hopefully. This will give us all the answers that we need.
