THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!
Oh, so good to see a familiar face. Hey, Bonnie. Would you care to join me? I mean, I’ve just been sitting here by myself seething. And since misery loves company, I’m assuming you’re miserable too. Why, why would I be? Why would you be? Because I know you hate Vivian Alamein with a vengeance, too, and since she is claiming to be the once and final Mrs.
Victor Kiriakis. Oh, that. Right, that. And since she and Victor were never legally divorced, she now claims to be the sole heir to his estate. And what’s worse? She threw us all out of the house. Now Justin and I, we’re slumming in in an itsy bitsy, teeny weeny little room at the Salem Inn. Excuse me, but weren’t you locked in Statesville for years, Bonnie?
Which is exactly why it’s so, uh, God, what’s the word everybody’s using? Triggering! Triggering! Not to speak ill of the dead. Damn Victor for leaving us in this mess. Damn him for destroying his will. In fact, damn him for dying.
Oh my god. Why? I, I, I, I can’t believe that that’s the child that she’s talking about. The baby boy. Victor’s son. It’s… Alex. Yeah. Oh.
Geez, who died? Oh, I’m sorry. I, um, Besides Uncle Vic, I didn’t mean to say that. You know I love Uncle Vic, too. I didn’t mean to say that. I’m sorry. You know, it’s okay. It’s just that, um, We’ve been through a heroin series of, of, uh, revelations. And, and now… Um, No. What?
Why is nobody answering me? Why aren’t you looking at me? What the hell’s going on?
Okay, don’t worry about it, alright? All is forgiven now that I’ve met my sweet granddaughter. But your mother, that is a whole different story. She’s pretty ticked off of you. Yeah, I figured. Where’s mom anyway? Don’t tell me she’s trying to track me down. Uh, she’s not. She went to Titan to see Vivian. What? I don’t understand.
Why would she go see Vivian? Because Vivian offered me a job there. Which, of course, Mom was not too thrilled about. In fact, she’s on the warpath. Shot out of here like a rocket to confront her. Well, we need to get her back here. I don’t think that’d be a good idea. Get between your mother and Vivian. That fur is gonna fly before the dusk.
So, that may be true, but I’d hate to see the fur that’s going to fly when mom finds out she missed my wedding. That’s right. Sarah and I are getting married. Right now.
Xander, wait. I’m sorry, I can’t. I can’t do this. I can’t marry you. What? Why? Because of Sarah. Oh, Chloe, darling, come on. I’ve told you a million times. I’m completely over Sarah. That’s not what I meant. I meant… Sarah lied to you. Rex isn’t the father of her baby. You are.
I’m sorry, I must have missed her because it’s so much. No, no, you didn’t miss hear me. Sarah lied. Her little girl is your daughter.
Like sand through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.
Okay, uh, wait, um, you two are telling me that you want to get married right here right now. Um, yeah, if it’s okay with you. Well, yeah, I mean, it’s okay with me, but can you give me a second to take all this in? I mean, a while ago, I didn’t know this little one was born, and now you two are talking about tying the knot.
Well, actually, she’s the reason we want to tie the knot. Because ever since Victoria Margaret made her grand entrance into this world, we want everyone to know who her father is.
I love you talking about? Victoria can’t be mine. Sarah told me. The timing, it made it impossible. Sanders, she lied. How do you know? I just overheard Rex and Phillip talking about it. In the square, Rex was confiding in Philip and they were talking and said that Victoria is your daughter.
Believe me, I hate that Vivian thinks she has a legitimate claim to Victor’s estate. You think you hate it? Imagine how Maggie feels, being kicked out of her own house by that evil witch. I know, it’s, it’s all a farce and I, I just wish you had some recourse. Well, I don’t know anything about a recourse.
Except there is one last shred of hope to hold on to. What’s that? Brady and Alex brought back Victor’s briefcase from Greece. The ISA found it in the plane wreckage. Hopefully there’s something in it that can turn this whole thing around. So, this, uh, this briefcase hasn’t been opened yet? No, they thought Maggie should do the honors.
I’m just hoping whatever’s in there, it’s good news.
You opened Uncle Victor’s briefcase? Did you figure out why he went to Greece? Is that the letter, the one Constantine was talking about? Yes, it is. It is. Good, good. Well, there’s gotta be some answers in there, right? Did you figure out why Uncle Vic destroyed his will? Um, why don’t I let the two of you talk alone?
Why? It’s about Uncle Vic. Yes, but it concerns you too. I’m sorry.
What’s going on? Why is Auntie Maggie sorry? And what’s in the letter? I just… I don’t understand.
Why would Sarah tell me that Rex is the baby’s father? Why would she lie to me? Get out. I know the answer is because she hates me. She hates me for what I did to Susan. I think it’s a lot more complicated than that. No, it’s actually very simple, Chloe.
She thinks I’m a bad person. A lowlife, not worthy to be the father of our child. Oh my gosh, you would rather her daughter, our daughter, grow up believing a lie than know the truth that I’m her father. Her precious little girl is mine.
Hey sweetheart. Oh my god. Look at that little smile. You do know your grandma and grandpa are going to spoil you, right? I have a feeling her parents are going to do the same. Along with their uncle. I just wish your grandma Kate would get here so she could meet you. Actually, here she is now. Well, look who decided to show up.
Mom, this is Victoria Margaret. Oh, Victoria Margaret. I know you probably wish her name was Victoria Catherine, but look, with everything that Maggie’s been through, I hope you understand. Yes, yes, yes. No explanations needed. Victoria is such a beautiful, oh, beautiful, beautiful baby. I just wish we had been introduced maybe two days earlier.
Oh, Kate, I’m… I’m so sorry. We definitely should have called. Yeah, after the birth, things got a little crazy, but hey, at least you’re here now for the wedding. The wedding? Yeah. We are getting married right here, right now. Oh. At least you’re getting your priorities in order. Doesn’t seem very festive, though.
But we have everything we need. Who’s performing the ceremony? That would be me. Ow.
Oh, Bonnie. Hey. I was just on my way to see you. Oh, Maggie, I was gonna come see you too. I just needed a little liquid energy first. Oh, God, those beds at the Salem Inn I was tossing and turning all night. Justin, too. Oh, I’m sorry. I shouldn’t be complaining. How are you? I hope you were able to get some sleep at Doug and Julie’s.
Um, not really. Well, of course not. How could you get any, any sleep? Not only have you just lost your husband, but you’ve been kicked out of your own house by that horrible Vivian Allemagne, who’s also threatened to leave you penniless. And, oh my god, the briefcase! Oh, here I am, just blathering on and on.
I’m so sorry. Tell me, please, please tell me there was something in there that’s gonna kick that evil wench to the curb. Well, actually, there was something in the briefcase. It turns out Victor made it a new will. A new will? Yes, he was in the process of drawing it up when he discovered that he and Vivian were never legally divorced.
So, he, uh, specifically left me 50 percent of his estate. Oh, Maggie! Oh my god, I’m so relieved! That’s wonderful news! So, I guess the rest of the family, we just split the other half, right? Uh, not exactly. Well, I mean, Justin was his favorite nephew, so I mean, he must have left us something, right? I’m sorry, Bonnie, but no.
Victor left the entire other half to his son. His son? Oh my god, which one?
So Vivian gets nothing, and… Maggie gets half of everything. Yeah, that’s what, uh, the new, new will dictates. Good, good. That’s great news, Dad. I mean, Maggie’s got to be relieved, and you too. Judging by the look on your face, there’s a catch, isn’t there? Is this about the other half of Uncle Vic’s estate? Yes, it is.
Oh, God. What the hell did Uncle Vic do? He cut us out, didn’t he? He left the other half to Bo. Oh, no, please, don’t, don’t, don’t tell me, Philip. No, Alex. No, he, uh,
He left the other half of his estate to his other son.
A son that none of us knew
about. Another son that none of us knew about? Are you kidding me? I wish I were. It’s all explained in this letter. So Uncle Victor’s leaving half of his estate to some secret son, Dad? This is insane. After everything you’ve done for him? After everything you’ve done for this family? There’s gotta be some way to fight this.
I mean, come on,
we’re not gonna let some Uncle Vic did. It’s wrong, and at least Auntie Maggie’s taken care of, and Vivian’s… Alex! Stop! Okay. It’s you. What’s me? This letter. Angelica wrote it. Her mother? She wrote some letter to Uncle Vic? Yes. You can read it. I’m sorry, Alex. And I don’t know how else I, I don’t know how else I can tell you this, so I’m just gonna say it.
I’m not your father. Victor
is. Hey, what are you telling me? Alex is not Justin’s son, he’s Victor’s, according to Angelica, yes. No. I can’t believe Well, it was spelled out pretty clearly in her letter.
This is crazy. Believe me, I know. Oh, poor Justin. How is he even dealing with this? Oh God, Maggie, I can’t. I can’t, I can’t believe that Justin is not Alex’s father. I think… I’m…
Victoria’s father, this is,
I don’t know what to say, I don’t think the words exist. Oh my god, if you hadn’t overheard Phillip and Rex talking, I might never have known.
Um, you, you might not have known anyway. I’m, I’m not proud of this, but, At first, I was thinking of keeping that secret. Not only for my own sake, but I overheard Philip and Rex saying that that’s what Sarah wanted. Obviously, it’s what she wanted, and I thought I’d be respecting her wishes if I kept my mouth shut, but…
I also realized that my loyalty isn’t to Sarah, it’s, it’s to you, and… You deserve to know the truth.
The Victoria is my daughter. Yeah, and there’s more.
What? Uh, apparently Sarah isn’t really in love with Rex. She’s only with him to cement her story that he’s the baby’s father. She wanted to do whatever she could to make sure that you never knew that Victoria was yours. And that’s the only reason she’s marrying Rex. Oh my god, they’re… They’re getting married right now at the pub?
Yeah, um, So does that mean that you want to go over there?
So you’re going to perform the ceremony? Rex said he deemed it inefficient, so I went online and got ordained. Great, so we’re all set then? Hey, you never thought you’d have two brothers who are ministers. Haha, lucky me. Okay, enough with the jokes. Let’s get this show on the road. We’re here. Can’t wait.
We are gathered here today to join this man and this woman in marriage. And, seeing as how this is my first go at this, I wanted to do it right. So, I’d like to begin with a recitation of one of my favorite epic poems. Low praise of the prowess of people kings. I’m just teasing you, bro. No, really, I just wanted to keep it sweet and simple today.
So here goes. Marriage is an honorable commitment and definitely a joyous one, but it can often involve making sacrifices for the one we love the most. But it is through these sacrifices that an even greater joy can be found. And with that said, Do you, Rex Brady, take Sarah Horton to be your lawfully wedded wife, to live together in matrimony, to love her, comfort her, honor and keep her?
In sickness and in health, in sorrow and in joy, to have and to hold, from this day forward, as long as you both shall live. I do. Do you, Sarah Horton, take Rex Brady to be your lawfully wedded husband? To live together in matrimony? To love him, comfort him, honor and keep him? In sickness and in health? In sorrow and in joy, to have and to hold, from this day forward, as long as you both shall live.
Do you think I should go over there and cause a scene? I think that you need to go tell Sarah that you know everything. Before she… Before she what? What, marries her ex? Chloe, we’re, we’re about to get married. We’re heading to New York to meet up with your parents and Parker, we have plane tickets. Xander.
What? Come on, you’re not thinking straight. You know this changes everything. No, no, no, nothing has changed, but we’re still the same people we were this morning. The ones who make each other laugh and play darts and have made a really happy home here. We’re the same people who are planning our life together.
Come on, Xander, stop. You know we’re… You know this changes everything. Now that we know the truth… about the baby… and Sarah… Can you honestly say this doesn’t change everything? I
do really care about you, Chloe. I know. I know you do. I love you.
But I just feel that Don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t say it.
I have to go. I have to find Justin. Bonnie, please, would you just sit with me for a bit? I mean, give Alex and Justin time to talk. He’s my husband, Maggie. He needs me. And I need to go to him now. Maggie, imagine if Victor found out that one of his children wasn’t his. What would you do? They’re at the Hortons.
He’s my, uh, he and my mother. You never knew? No. No. I can only assume that they had some kind of dalliance and kept it a secret.
If that’s true, um, why would it be there? Why would he and my mother have kept that a secret from me my whole life? Well, according to this letter, your mother thought that, um, I would be devastated to learn that, uh, she had lied to me and allowed me to think that, uh, Beautiful baby boy is mine. And that, uh, that I would feel incredibly betrayed by my uncle.
You know, flesh and blood. So, that’s why she and Victor kept it from me. And you.
Sarah, I think that’s your cue. Yeah, I, I’m so sorry, where were we? Oh, just me asking if you’d take Rex to be your lawfully wedded husband. Right, right. Yes, of course, yes. Then, if we could have the rings. Here you go. Thanks, Pop. With this ring, I thee wed.
With this ring, I thee wed.
By the power vested in me, by the almighty internet, I now pronounce you husband and wife.
And that’s your cue, bro. Good work.
When Brady and I went to Greece to try and figure out what Uncle Vic was up to, um, I never could have imagined that it would be this. Look, look, I don’t care what this paper says. And Victor may be your biological father, but Alex, look at me. I am your dad, in every way that counts, and nothing can change that.
You don’t feel that way?
Oh, I’m feeling, uh,
I can’t really put into words, um, None of it seems real.
Everything that I thought of, Who I am, Who my father is. Who my brothers are is suddenly told to me that it was all a lie.
I was really proud to know that you were my father. You’re a good person.
You’re honorable. And you are honest, and you are kind, and I always thought that because I was part of you, that maybe deep down somewhere inside of me, that that was inside of me too, and I, uh…
I just think that it always, it always gave me some kind of hope for myself. And now, uh, Alex, you are a good person. And I have, I know I’ve been tough on you from time to time, but I have always, I’ve always believed in you, son. Because I know how smart you are, and most importantly, What a good heart you have.
I feel like any minute I’m gonna wake up from this very strange nightmare.
I hope the hell I do very soon.
I think I need to be alone right now.
Well, if I do say so myself… It’s very well hung. Said the chorus girl to the archbishop. You know there’s a reason I like you, you’ve got a filthy mind and a terrible aim. You know, let’s hope that that board stays up there because I would hate for it to fall the moment I hit my first bullseye. If a massive earthquake were to hit Salem…
And that wall started to crumble? Our dart bullet would stop it from falling. You think? I know. That’s a bearing wall. It might save the whole building. Thanks to my expert installation. Unbelievable.
Ha ha, believe it. I’m ready for that shoulder massage. Uh huh.
Ooh. Oh yeah, that feels good. Maybe I don’t mind losing so much
after a while.
Mom, hi. It’s me. No, I’m not at the airport. I’m actually, I’m actually not. Yeah, something’s wrong. Um, Xander and I, we, uh,
well, the wedding is off.
Sorry to crash the party, Mrs. Brady. Xander, what are you doing here? I came for my baby. Your baby. This is not your baby. Are you sure about that? I want to ask them. What the hell are you talking about? Stop. Chloe was there, Philip. In the square. She overheard you and Rex talking about it. About how Sarah’s baby is actually mine.
But Chloe had the decency to tell me. Before we both got on a plane to go to New York. To get married. Chloe must have misunderstood. Say something, Sarah.
She didn’t misunderstand. She’s right. Victoria is Sanders. She’s yours.
You and I need to
Vivian, um, it’s Maggie. I need to see you as soon as possible. You and I have something very important to discuss.
Honey, I just, I just talked to Maggie. Oh, baby, I’m so sorry. Come here, baby. Come here. Oh, honey.
How can this be happening?
How can you be my father?
I thought you two, uh… Could use these, you know. Say that again.
So, that beautiful little girl, isn’t our granddaughter?
No. And I’m sorry. That’s why I was so slow to… To tell you about her. Um, so I guess that means that you and Sarah weren’t in a real relationship. She wasn’t.
Well, I assume you left my daughter with her fake father, huh? How could you do this, Sarah? How could you keep her from me?
No, it’s okay, Mom. You don’t have to come here. No, I promise. No, I will be fine, okay? I, um… I’ll just, I’ll talk to you later, okay? Okay, I love you too.
