Sean resigned? I’m as surprised as you are. What’s he gonna do now? Well, he’s leaving town, moving closer to his parents. I guess there’s a good rehab facility out there. I see. Well, at least he’s getting the help that he needs, wherever that may be. Yeah. What are you thinking? Oh. I know Sean promised that it was just a one night stand, what happened with he and my sister, and that it will never happen again.

But, I still can’t help but feel a bit relieved that the two of them are going to be very far apart from each other.

Wait, Mrs. Brady.

Look, I just wanted to say, um, when you walked in on me talking to Sean at the police station, that was just a one time thing, okay? You never have to worry about me dropping in on him ever again. Yeah, I know. Because Sean just left town.

Happy birthday, my love.

God, look at you. You’re still the most beautiful woman I have ever laid my eyes on.


I know you’ve been gone for a while now. But I

still miss you.

Every minute. Of every day.

You’re still with me though.

I hear.

You know, we have um, we have a good birthday planned for you. Julie’s gonna, gonna meet me at the cemetery with the kids.

Spoiler alert. I brought you flowers

and then the kids say I made you a few things.

Remember the good times?

How happy you made us all.

How grateful we are. We were for the time that we did have with you.

We should’ve,

we should’ve had more though. We should’ve had so much more time.

I have, I’ve tried. Believe me, I have tried to get rid of this anger.

Because I know that is what you would want.

But I

can’t. I can’t. Because every time,

I think about how I found you that night.

I think about how you were taken from

us. And I think about Clyde Weston and what you.

To us.

How can that son of

a bitch live with himself? Oh, Ava? Ava Vartali? Yes? It’s so nice to hear your voice. Uh, listen. Little Birdie told me that your baby boy had an accident at work today. And, um, I think you should know. It wasn’t no accident. What? Who the hell is this? Well, uh, you’ll find out soon enough. Cause you and I, we got a lot to talk about, mama.

Why? Why did you attack my son? Well, I think you misunderstood. Um, unfortunately, I wasn’t able to do the deed myself. You see, at the present time, I happen to be locked up. You’re in prison. That’s right. You do catch on fast. But like I said, we need to talk in person. So why don’t you mosey on down to Statesville and ask to see prisoner number 49.

9 2 4, a. k. a. Clad Westin.

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

Clad Westin. Why would you attack my son? Answer me. I await your arrival, Miss Vitale, when all will be revealed. Hey,


where are you going? Um, I, uh, I have to take care of something. I’ll be back. Wait,

Sean left town? Wow, I, I had no idea. Just to be clear, Sean and I are still together. He just went to go spend some time with his parents and get the help that he needs. Yeah, of course. But, you’re not going with him? Not that it’s any of your business, but no. I’ll be staying here in Salem for the foreseeable future.

So listen, if you could just do me a favor. Yeah, anything. Just stay away from me, okay?

Talia and Sean, I know how upsetting that was for you. Never mind me. He cheated on his wife. Yeah, Bell’s the one that’s really going through it. Well, the alcohol clouded his judgment. And hers. But, uh, he realizes he has a problem and he’s dealing with it and that’s a good thing. In the meantime, I need to find you a partner and considering we are understaffed, I’m gonna need to hire someone new.

Yes? Uh, excuse me, Commissioner. Uh, do you have a moment? Is

Belle okay? Why do you ask? Well, because she was in earlier, and she just seemed off. You know, and I, I know that she’s been having problems with Sean, but I thought that you told me he was doing okay and that she was encouraged. She was. She was. Um, but then things have gone, uh, rather badly. They’ve gone from bad to worse, in fact.

And it just makes me so sad because she’s, she… She has supported him. She has stood by him. During his, uh, drinking. During his depression because of his father and his grandfather and now… And now what?

Now he’s cheated on her. Let’s tell you, Hunter.

I know, Mrs. Brady, that this is bad. Listen, Talia, listen. I don’t blame you for what happened. Okay? Not entirely, anyway. I know that this is on Sean. Right. Having said that, though, I’m sure you can understand why I just don’t want to be around you. But it’s going to be hard. It’s going to be hard to avoid each other in Salem because it’s a really small town and, you know, I get the sense that you probably don’t want to be bumping into me either, so why don’t we just agree to just steer clear of each other, okay, like, forever.

Okay, I’m here.

What the hell is going on? Ms. Fatale, it’s a pleasure to meet you. Oh, cut the crap. Why’d you have my son attacked? Right to the point, huh? I do lack that in a woman. Okay. Why did I have you sign up tech? Because you screwed up my plans. You see, I’m trying to build a business empire from in here. Oh, an empire, huh?

Of what? Toilet wine? Blue cigarettes? No. Pharmaceuticals. And we were all about ready to launch. When you nearly destroyed the entire operation. And how’d I do that? Well, you see, I couldn’t really run a business from in here, so I needed a partner on the outside. Oh my God, can we please get to the point?

Well, let’s just say that this partner was less than a willing participant. But, I found the means to force him to do my bidding. Until, of course, you stole my leverage. Leverage? What leverage? What the hell are we talking about here? We’re talking about the partner I just lost. Who happens to be a close personal friend of yours.

Mr. E. J. DeMare.

Chad, what brings you by? Uh, you know, Thomas and Charlotte wanted to see Rachel. Apparently her toys are much, much better than theirs. Yes, I think she got a new hole last week. Right. Anyway, I thought it would be good for the kids to have a play date. Yeah. We just came from Abby’s grave. Of course. Today is her birthday, isn’t it?

Yeah, you remember. She was my sister and all. I

miss her too.

Mr. Michaels. What can I do for you? Well, I was hoping to have a word with you. Your assistant said now might be a good time, but I don’t mean to interrupt. No, you’re fine. I was actually just about to go grab some lunch. So, excuse me. So, Amanda, what’s up? Uh, you know, I’m a bit reluctant, um, given the circumstances and, uh, my recent history and not so recent history.

You know what, I think this is just a mistake. Wait, wait, what’s a mistake? What’s on your mind? Well, I’m here because, um,

I wonder if there’s any possibility that maybe… Harris, why don’t you just say it? I need a job.

I still can’t believe the, uh, the news about your, your mother. I mean, You must be so happy, so relieved. I am. I, I just… I just wish that she could have stayed. Did she go back to Memphis? Couldn’t wait to get back to Roger and tell, tell him the good news. That, like the king himself, the rumors of her death were greatly exaggerated.

Yeah, I envy you. Yeah, I mean, your mom may have gone home, but, uh, but she’s out there. Somewhere, you know, she’s just a, she’s just a quick flight away. Yes, that’s, that is true. And Chad, how I wish that were the case with Abigail. I know today is especially difficult. Her birthday. Yeah, it is. You know, let’s um, focus on the good news.

You got your mom back. I do. I do. And, and, honestly, I don’t think I’ll ever forget the moment that Harris Michaels brought her through those doors.

You need a job. Oh, you mean here? Yeah. Yes. Here. I mean, although I may not have experience with law enforcement, I was talking to Kate Brady. Uh, you know Kate, right? Yeah. Yeah. We’re acquainted. Okay. Well, um, she actually mentioned, um, that, you know, the training and the skills that I do have, that I could be maybe of some value to you.

Ah, I see. Right. So when you say training, you mean in the Navy? Yeah, that’s, that’s exactly what I mean. Yeah. I went to the police academy before, then I went to the military, and that’s when I became a SEAL. Oh, yeah, yeah. Well, I’m sure you have quite the skill set. Yeah. I mean, you used it, uh, in those special ops you did for Megan Hathaway, right?

You kidnapped John Black and Steve Johnson. That’s no mean feat. Yeah, that’s uh, not what I was talking about when I said I was qualified. Yeah. So, um, I thank you for your time, Commissioner. Yeah, well why are you rushing off so fast? I was enough.

So, do we understand each other? You and I are just gonna do everything we can to stay as far away from each other as possible because I really just need you to stay away from me. Talia, are you okay? Hey. Hey, I couldn’t hear what Belle was saying to you just now, but I can’t imagine that it was anything good.

No, it wasn’t. But I mean, I get it. She has every right to hate me. Yeah, well maybe she does. But she has no right to be cruel to you. Okay? Listen. I’m gonna go talk to her, okay? No, please don’t, okay? I don’t want to cause more trouble than it already is. So please just leave it. Okay.

Whatever, fine. But listen, Talia. Sean was complicit in what he did. And at some point, Belle’s gonna have to realize that you did not mean to hurt her. And I know, I know this sounds cliche, but please believe me when I say that this will get better, okay? It’ll get easier in time. Yup. I know it will. Because…

Jayna, I won’t be here.

Tripp? Hey. I didn’t expect to find you here. Ah, but here I am. Uh, how’d it go at the unemployment office? Well, I filed my claim. Mm hmm. And then I got the hell out of there. You know, I think that place has the DMV beat. Hands down, worst afternoon ever. Which is why you are definitely a sight for sore eyes.

Well, after the day I’ve had, I can definitely say the same about you. But why are you even here? I thought you had to shift at the hospital. I did, I did. But then I got the hell out of there. And so, if you want it, that means we could. Wait, wait, wait. What about your mom? She’s not here. When’s she coming back?

That’s hopefully not too soon. Yeah, that’s not too reassuring, Tripp. I’m sorry, I know. I don’t know where she is. Uh, she did leave in kind of a hurry, though. Is something wrong? I hope not. Uh, but she did seem kind of rattled. Uh, I don’t know. She has something to take care of. I have no idea what it was.

DJ. What are you talking about? What leverage? You really need me to spell it out? Okay. I had his momma on ice in London. Oh my god. It was you. You handed Susan over to Edmund Crumb.

How? How’d you do it from in here? Providence, Miss Vitali. Providence. An associate of mine just happened upon an injured Susan right after the crash. He flew a kite my way. Wasn’t very difficult to find that Looney Tunes ex husband of hers in London, so I just had her labeled fragile and shipped her on over.

And what, so you just, what, sat on her for about a year? Well, let’s just say that, um, finding investors was a little more difficult than I anticipated. But, lucky for me, Cronus took the side with Susan. Well, no problem to have him keep her under wraps until I did everything lined up, you know, then I was going to use her To force him to run my business But why AJ Well He and I did some business together back in the day And last time I got out of here.

I pitched teaming up again. Did he? Shopping down. Mr Posh Spice in his fancy mansion, but I found the incentive to, uh, Force his perfectly manicured hand. Until you stole my leverage. I think the word you’re looking for is… Rescued. So?

Because I messed up your little plan accidentally. You decide to try and kill my son? It’s fatality. Discretion is appreciated. Oh, you can shove your… I did not try to kill you, son. That was a warning. Because I need someone to replace EJ. And that someone’s gonna be you, mama.

Okay, we’re inside. We’re seated. Now tell me everything. And no, I am not gonna wait until we order. Uh, Jada, I… No, no, no, no. Don’t Jada me. I want you to tell me what you meant by you’re not going to be here. Look, it’s just, I was thinking it’s probably best that um, I go back to California. California? But you’re, you’re settled here.

And you have a good job, a great job at the hospital. Yeah, I know. And look, don’t get me wrong, I am very grateful to Kayla for setting that up for me. But look, I still have connections at Stanford. I graduated top of my class. I mean, it has to mean something, right? Of course it does. But it also means something here, too.

Listen, don’t let Belle run you out of town. You deserve to be here just as much as she does. I’m not so sure about that.

Michaels, I was just giving you a hard time. Yeah, you’re gonna have to be able to take that around here. So, you mean… You’d be an invaluable asset to Salem PD. Especially since we are severely understaffed. So, I’m hired? Well, no. I mean, I have to run it past the mayor. Especially considering the fact that you’d be a pretty unorthodox hire.

This would also probably put you back in the headlines. But, um… As long as the mayor doesn’t have a problem with it, I’m open to see you on PD.

I guess we’re pretty lucky then that their Harris Michaels blew into town. I suppose that’s true. But, none of this would have happened if Ava hadn’t remembered seeing my mother escape the car before it exploded. And, as much as I hate to admit it, I also have Ava to thank for bringing my mother back home to me.

Ugh. So, ketchup or hot sauce? Hm? To muscle down the, the hat? Or did, I mean, there’s no way you could have eaten it dry. Or did, was it crow that you had to eat? Yes, yes, yes. Enjoy it while it lasts, brother. So, then, um. Are you actually turning over a new leaf? Are you and Ava square? I’m not going to do anything drastic if that’s what you’re asking me.

But I don’t think square is the word I would use. Ava may have brought my mother back to me. But she is also responsible for my mother disappearing in the first place. I lost a year with my mother, Chad. And I won’t forgive her for that.

You want me to run your new drug empire? You used to run banks for the Philly mob, didn’t you? That was a long time ago. I’m going straight. Trying to put my life back together, and that starts with getting a legitimate job. Well, I’ll set you up with a legitimate job, alright? That’s not a problem. I got connections at the Bistro.

The Bistro? Mm hmm. What, in Horton Town Square? That’s the one. It’ll be a front, but… You’ll look the part. And none of your loved ones will be any of the wiser. Speaking of What? Well…

You know, I expected you to put up a little bit of a fight about this, which is why I sent my friend to visit your son. But like I said, that’s a warning. And if you don’t… Do what I ask you to do.

We sum to dead man.

You know what, this might be about Harris Michaels. Why do you think that? Well, when I got here, he, uh, was here. And they were a little friendly. Oh, friendly. Yeah. Which is a euphemism for more than friendly. Yeah. So you think there’s something going on between them? Well, my mom tried to deny it, but then, uh, she ended up telling me that the two of them are planning to have dinner.

Oh! Mm hmm. Good for them. Mm hmm. And, you know, they say the best relationships start out as friendships. Oh. Yeah. I mean, look at us. Oh.

What’s wrong? It’s nothing. Wait, wait. Is that a bandage in my hair? It’s nothing, really. Tripp, what happened? I was attacked at work. You were what?

So, a patient attacked you at work. You need to be bandaged up. And sent home early, and I don’t hear a word about it? I’m telling you now, and honestly, it’s really not that big of a deal. Trip, you got stabbed. It wasn’t a stabbing, okay? It was a minor cut. Really, the artery’s severed. Oh, how comforting. So?

Was this guy facing charges? They arrested him, right? Actually, he kinda got away. My God, so he’s still somewhere out there. What if he comes back? He won’t. Okay, hey, look. It was just some junkie, right, that went a little nuts. Okay, it’s not like he was out to kill me.

So, if I don’t agree to help you… Yeah, uh… I’m no fancy lawyer like our friend EJ, but from my perspective, I, it looks like you’re trapped. Oh, I’m trapped, okay. It’s pretty interesting coming from a guy who’s sitting here in prison. Oh, well, don’t let these four walls fool you, you know. I think I’ve proved that I can get to anyone on the outside.

And my friends would only be too happy to pay your son a visit on my behalf. Once again. So I don’t have a choice. If I want to keep my son safe, I have to run your business.

I do believe you finally get it.

And I would keep my pretty little mouth shut about this arrangement if I were you. Which, I don’t think should be a problem. You do strike me as a kind of woman who’s really good at keeping secrets.

Yes, sir. Ray, Bob, I do believe this is the beginning of a very profitable friendship.

Oh, I really, uh, I really appreciate this commissioner. Now that I’m working with the Salem PD in an official capacity, maybe there’s still a chance I can get that confession from EJ DeMera after all. Yeah, well, I won’t deny that that thought crossed my mind as well, but, uh, I have something else in mind for you.

Talia, don’t say that. Of course you deserve to be here. Yeah, well, I don’t agree with you. Okay, and even if I did deserve to be here, how can I have a life here now? I mean, I literally work at the hospital with Belle’s mother. Don’t even get me started with Chanel. I thought that was going to be something and now, seeing her with Johnny, you know, that hurts way too much.

So please, can we just face it that Salem was just a failed experiment for me. Tell you, listen, I know you’ve had a lot of disappointment here, but listen, I’m still here. I’m your big sister and I love you. You ride or die. T right. And trust me, I love you too. Okay. But. This isn’t something I just thought about in the spur of the moment.

I’ve been thinking about this for a while now, okay? So please, please just try not to talk me out of it anymore. This is something that I really need to do.

I’m gonna go



Jada. I know this has been hard for you. Talia’s grown up a lot in these past few months, and if she says that it’s time to go, then I believe her. It’s time to go. It’s not necessarily forever. Maybe, maybe she’ll take this time, and when she figures things out in her head, then maybe she’ll come back. Yeah.

Yeah, maybe she will. Yeah.

Hey. Hi. You’re heading to Cali? Yeah. I booked the last seat on the last flight tonight. Well, we’re gonna miss you. We will. Although, I can’t say I blame you with this Midwestern winter coming. Yeah. Yeah. You left to the airport? Um, no. Thanks. Um, I have a car coming. Okay.

So, um, you got everything? Yeah, I think so. But I know if I forget something, I know you’ll mail it to me. Yeah. You know, I got you, sis. And besides, it’s not like mom wouldn’t buy you two new things if you had anything you left anyway. You know. So, um, I’m gonna go. I’m gonna miss you so much. I’m gonna miss you too.

Be safe, okay?

Oh, looks like they approved my unemployment. That’s great. What’s the bad news? In order for my benefits to continue, I’m going to have to show meaningful proof that I’ve been searching for a new job. I was the head of the IT department at DiMera, okay? I can’t just find a health wanted sign in the square.

He just wants you to put something down. Don’t worry too much. Hey, think of this as a bonding opportunity. You could, uh, pound the pavement with my mom. Your mom? Yeah. She’s looking for a job too.

Ava. Oh,

hey. You okay? Yeah, yeah, I’m,

I’m, I’m, I’m fine. Okay, that’s good, because I have some news. Yeah? Just got a job at the Salem PD. Ray fired you, huh? Wow, that’s, that’s crazy. It’s great. Yeah, I couldn’t, I couldn’t believe it. And he’s already assigned me my first case. Really? Yeah. What is it? He wants me to find the person who delivered Susan to Edmund Crowe.

All right, well, I should probably, um, round up the kids. Promise them ice cream. Celebrate their, their mom’s birthday. Right? Chime. My heart breaks for you. And you may not want to hear this right now, but I wish to hell that I killed Clyde Weston when I had the chance. Especially when I’m around your wonderful children.

And mother cruelly taken away from them. From you.

Actually, I, I don’t mind hearing that. I am often, concerned with anger.

Really is a shame that, Belle and Sean, Showed up last year before we had a chance to take that bastard out. It would have been quite fun watching him bleed out in that cemetery.

Well, what do you know? Looks like this is going to work out after all.

Sorry for falling apart like this. Alright, it’s okay. It’s understandable. Jenna? Honey, what’s wrong? Hey. Hey, um, my sister, she’s, she’s leaving Salem. She’s actually on her way to the airport right now. What? But she just got a job at the hospital. I thought she was happy. She was, uh, up until recently. Oh. So it’s, is it about Sean?

And sleeping together? The repercussions thereof? You knew about that? Well, Marlena told me. Hey, look. No judgment whatsoever, but I think it probably is best for Marlena, Belle, and Vitalia too, that if they’re just not in close proximity for a while. Yeah, I, I get that. I just, I just wish it didn’t end up this way.

Of course not.
