[sighs] This is so peaceful, huh?

Mm-hmm. It’s perfect– crackling fire, winter wind blowing.

You know, when I was a kid, I used to be afraid to come out here at night. I used to think that the ghosts of my DiMera ancestors would grab me and take me off to the crypt.

Mm, those creepy DiMera spirits…


Are those the ones cursing anyone marrying into this family?

[soft dramatic music]

Could be. Honestly, nothing would surprise me.

Wait a minute. You’re not really afraid for us to get married, are you?

Oh, thank you so much for this evening, Abraham.

[chuckles] Oh great food, great food and even better company.


[chuckles] I had a wonderful time.



[tender music]

Well… You know, tonight doesn’t have to end right here. I mean, you could come inside.

Oh, no, no, no, it’s all right. It’s all right. I– Good night.

Wait, wait, wait, wait. Hold on.

I can’t believe you’re here again in my arms.


You know, for two years, I had the same dream over and over. Actually, I was in a coma for a year, and I wasn’t really dreaming then. But for a solid year, I had this dream where late one night, you’d show up at my door, and I’d sweep you off your feet with my romantic declarations of love. We’d take each other’s clothes off and… well, you can imagine the rest, or I guess you don’t have to.


[laughter] Wow. So tonight was your fantasy?

Actually, tonight was my dream come true. My fantasy is I’m a rugged ship captain, and you show up at my cabin door dressed as a sexy Viking warrior.


[gasps] Oh. I will have to remember that.


Yeah, you should remember that.


We’re out of the friend zone!



Now, you see, I thought it was gonna turn out to be the scientist’s mentor who killed his wife. I mean, he was already upset that the protégé had eclipsed him, and so he offed the wife to set him up for the murder.

Mm-mm. I figured early on it was the mother. I mean, she was too obsessed with him, always had to know where he was every second. She wanted her son’s wife out of the picture.

Mm, well, you were right. Are you sure you haven’t seen this movie before?

I just know a thing or two about meddling moms.

[soft dramatic music]

Uh-oh. What has my mom done now?

Well, that happened.




It was incredible.


And a big fricking mistake.


You don’t want to play games with me. What do you want?

Thank you for coming. Sit down, Mr. Black. You and I are going to talk.

Just tell me what you want. So why do you pretend to be a new client just to get me out here?


[chuckles] Would you have come if you’d known it was me?

Damn straight, I would have. Saves me the trouble of tracking your ass down because you’re right, Konny. You and I, we’re gonna talk. And you’re gonna tell me everything that you know about The Pawn.

[tense music]

[soft orchestration] announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “Days of Our Lives.”

I’m afraid I do not play chess, Mr. Black.

Knock it off. Steve told me everything. You told him you know about The Pawn. Now I want to know what you know, and I want to know right now. Is this about Stefano?

I do not know about this Stefano. No, John, this is about Victor and his Pawn.

[tense music]

Italian families can be pretty superstitious. I mean, for example, a lot of my ancestors used to wear this necklace charm called The Devil’s Horn to ward off the evil eye.

Evil eye?

Yeah. It’s called the malocchiocurse. And someone who’s jealous of you can give you the evil eye without even meaning to. Yeah, there’s a lot of Italian superstitions.

Oh, yeah? Give some examples.

Some examples? OK. Um, it is bad luck to have a pet bird in your house. It’s also bad luck to leave a loaf of bread upside-down. The number , obviously, bad luck. Ooh, here’s one. So when a newlywed couple moves into a house…


It has to be exorcised, or at least blessed, to ward off any evil spirits left behind by the previous owners.


On the other hand, a cat sneezing in your presence is considered good luck.


[laughs] OK. Well, then we will just have to get a cat then.

[laughs] Oh, come on, G. You don’t actually believe all that stuff, do you?


[sighs] Look, after what my uncle Chad said to me, my family’s history is riddled with women who have either been heartbroken or messed up for marrying a DiMera– I mean, from getting kidnapped to brainwashed to death.

[dramatic music] And look what happened the last time we got married.

Yeah, yeah, that did leave me pretty messed up and heartbroken.

So maybe we should just be, you know, happy being with each other, just being with each other.

Chanel, I–

I love you too much to risk ruining your life by marrying me again.

You know, when I came to Salem and I tracked you down, I didn’t really know what to expect because I’d sort of been obsessively looking at pictures and videos of you from…

[chuckles] From two years ago. And I’d look at them before I went to sleep. I’d wake up in the morning, and I’d maybe sort of look at them. Anyway, when I saw you in real life standing in front of me, I didn’t think it was possible for you to surprise me with how beautiful you are.

[tender music]

You want to know what I thought when I first saw you here in Salem after not having seen you for two years?

Are you kidding me? Of course, I want to know.

I thought… “There’s the guy that I was so madly in love with I could hardly see straight.” And in spite of how rattled I was, more than rattled, I was shocked.

But even so… I was hard for me to stop myself from running into your arms and just holding you so, so tightly. I wanted to tell you how mad I was that you disappeared but how relieved I was that it wasn’t by choice, how relieved I was that you found me again.

But as you know, I was– I was committed to someone else at the time. I was living with Chad, and so that obviously stopped me from acting on how I actually felt.


That’s the reason that I was able to show such…

[sighs] Remarkable restraint…

Until tonight.

You hungry?

Mm-hmm, starving.

You know what the nice thing is about living in a hotel?

[together] Room service.

Yeah. On it.

That mom comment just flew out of my mouth. I shouldn’t have said anything.

No, you can’t take it back now. Just– just tell me.

[soft dramatic music]

OK. I will. Your mom cornered me in the apartment and kind of grilled me.


[sighs] About?

Well, it started out with her reminding me how much you hate almond milk, and then it pretty much went downhill from there. Yeah, in a nutshell, she questioned my commitment to you, then warned me to not break your heart.

Wendy, I’m– I’m so sorry.

Look, you– you were right when you said your mom was kind of a handful. No offense.

No, I get it. Nothing– nothing new there. No, but it does rile me up that she would talk to you like that behind my back. But she is Ava Vitali. And you know, she is my mom, and I love her very much. I will never understand why the woman does some of the things she does.


[groans] Oh, God.


Oh, Gabi.


You know…

When I first told Gabi about this fake affair, she was completely supportive. She says, “As long as it stays fake, mi amor.” Look at me now. What have I done? What is wrong with me? What’s wrong with you, huh?



Me? You’re the one who came– ow– over here. And you– you took my sushi from the delivery guy.

You’re the one who wound me up with all the phone sex talk.

Oh my– are you kidding? I mean, who– who was the one who said, “Let’s open another bottle of wine”? Huh?

Who was the one who said, “Let’s do shots?”


[shushing] Stop it. OK? Shh. We’re both responsible. OK, responsible. We were vulnerable, and it was a big screw-up.



No kidding.

Yeah. OK. So we’re just gonna figure out– we’re going to figure out a way to put this all behind us. OK? And there’s really nothing to figure out, right? Because the only way to deal with this is no one can ever know the truth.

[tense music]

Wait a minute. I don’t get all of this sudden panic about us getting married. Aren’t you the one who gave me the whole carpe diem spiel? And, “oh, Chanel, I love you so much. I don’t want to wait.”

I do love you so much, and I don’t want to wait. I also don’t want anything to happen to you. I mean, you can make fun of curses and superstitions all you want, but I was possessed by the devil. I’m pretty sure you recall. Who knows what the future can hold? I just– I just don’t know if I want you taking this kind of risk.

Yeah, well, life in general is pretty risky, as we both know. And, hey, if the devil couldn’t keep us apart, then the DiMeras sure as hell can’t. And I truly believe all we have to do is love each other and be honest. And that will keep us safe. So in short, I have zero worries about us walking down that aisle. But now suddenly you do.

I mean, it’s not all that sudden. It’s just the more I think about it–

Wait, wait a minute. Is this really about what Chad said? Or are you having second thoughts about something else?

[soft dramatic music]

I probably shouldn’t say this to a man with amnesia, but I’m having deja vu.


[laughs] So what are you remembering?

Just the many times that we’d lay together here just like this.

[tender music] Did anything feel familiar to you?

No. But I promise you, it was wonderful.

Hmm. So I guess for you, it was like the very first time.

It was. It was. You know the good thing about losing my memory?


I get to fall in love with you all over again.


And I told her the only opinions that matter in our relationship are yours and mine.

Wendy, I am so sorry that my mom put you on the spot like that. But no surprise, you held your own against her.

Oh, and once again, she tried to convince me that you and I need to take a vacation. And she even offered to help me plan a romantic getaway on her. Clearly, she’s still trying to get us out of town.

Even though I’ve told her that we’re not going anywhere?

Yeah, well, obviously she’s not listening. She really did not like it when I turned the tables on her and started quizzing her about Harris and Stefan.

What did you ask?

How she felt about them. I mean, she totally shut me down and wouldn’t say anything.

Yeah, of course, she wouldn’t. She has been spending a lot of time with Stefan lately, which is not a good sign. I mean, not only do I dislike the guy, but I think whatever my mom is messed up in, Stefan’s behind it, just using her like the leech that he is.

Yes, of course, this stays between us. Gabi can never find out. Nobody can ever find out the truth.

Exactly. It never happened.

It never happened.

We take it to our graves.

Yeah, you had better, especially because, me, I got a lot more at stake,

What? How so?

How so? Because I’m married, OK? You and Mr. Clean, you’re not even seeing each other anymore.

Oh, so it’s OK if he finds out. Look, I don’t want him to know the truth either.

He already thinks we’re sleeping together. What’s the–you know what? Fine. OK? Miss Fabio, no argument from me. But let me remind you, I got a hell of a lot more to lose than you do.

So, what’s The Pawn to you?

The Pawn changed my life forever.

How? Tell me what you know about me, about my past.


[chuckles] I wonder what is inside of you waiting to come out. I can see it in your eyes, the eyes of a killer.

Damn it, Konstantin. There are so many– too many things that I don’t remember about my past. And now you show up here taunting me?

That is the least of what you deserve.

Tell me what you know about me right now.

[suspenseful music]

It’s so good.



Sorry, they didn’t have pasta with meat sauce on the menu. I know that’s your go-to for recharging.

All right, can’t beat a grilled cheese as a late night snack on a cold winter’s night. And you remembered to get ranch for our fries.

How could I forget how you take your fries?



Also that you hate olives, love anchovies, prefer rye bread over white. I can keep going.

I am impressed.

I also remember…


[tender music]


[laughs] What? What else?

Every inch of you.

Hey, look. There’s our geocaching event.

Oh, Caching Cupid– they used your title. I hope it kills. The hospital could really use the funding.

Well, the website’s been getting a ton of traffic. I set it up to maximize search engine optimization.

Mm, OK, well, now you’re turning me on with all this techie talk.

Really? Well, have I told you about the geodetic data?


Keep talking like this, and we won’t be able to wait for the apartment.

HTTPS is an extension of the hypertext transfer protocol.

We better hurry, woman.



Hey, you know what? I don’t understand the hold that that guy has on you. It’s not like you guys are married. Yeah, you’re not even together. You don’t even love the guy.

[soft dramatic music]

[laughs] Oh, wait a minute. You love Harris.

Look, I never said that.

You didn’t have to. You are wearing it all over your sleeve.

OK. You know what? It really doesn’t matter anyway, right? You know, I’m going to request that you shut up and maybe finish getting dressed so we can get you the hell out of here, OK?

OK, fine. Where is my shirt?

We brought everything in here in case Wendy and Tripp showed up. Come on. It’s here.

Well, it’s definitely not in here.

If you know as much about me as you claim you do, you know that I won’t hesitate to put a bullet through a man’s eye.

Or a woman’s either.

[tense music]

What does that mean?

What does that mean?

You came at me, and Katerina got in the way.

I came at you? Whe–? Who’s Katerina?



Tell me. Hands where I can see them.

I need you to see something and tell me what it means, and I will go away.

John. John? Are you OK? John.

[ominous music]

Who’s John?


[chuckles] If you are not John, then are you The Pawn?

I’ve been called that, yes.

Oh, finally. My God.

[speaks Greek] Finally, after all these years, I found you, the one who killed Katerina. There was a time many years ago in Greece, in Aria, you came to deliver a message, a message of death.

My beautiful Katerina.

John… someone must pay for that.

You know, it’s– it’s been a while since we’ve been together.

You’re not asking me to rate your performance, are you?

Oh, no, no, no, no. I was just– well, I don’t remember what you– don’t remember what you like or don’t like.

Oh, honey, I am not shy. You know I would tell you.

[laughter] But, well, I will say this, you were wonderful then, and you’re wonderful now.

[laughter] Oh, your side of the bed sure did miss you, Abraham. And so did I.

[tender music]

Chanel, I have zero second thoughts about marrying you, none whatsoever. OK, I just– I just want to make sure that you’re going into this with your eyes open.

Well, I told you that your big, tough family doesn’t scare me.

What about the other side?

You mean your mother?

No, although she can be quite scary. I was thinking more about my sister.

Your sister? You don’t really think that I still have feelings for Allie?

You did choose her once over me.

But I loved you first, and I love you last forever.

[soft dramatic music] What? You don’t believe me?

I just I can’t stop thinking about how crazy you guys were about each other.

Oh, my God. You’re worried that I prefer women.

You’re worried that I’m gay, aren’t you?

You know, I’m blown away that it’s been two years.

Mm. I mean, in some ways, it feels like it’s been forever, and in other ways, it feels like we’ve never been apart.

I mean, I haven’t been with anybody since the last time I was with you.

Well, you know my story. You weren’t in a coma for a year, so I think you get a pass.

Hmm. Thank you.

You want to hear something wild?


I think I grew more and more in love with you while we were apart.

An “absence makes the heart grow fonder” thing?

No, no, like a true love kind of thing. All I know is I have you back, and I am never, ever gonna let you go again.

You know, I should probably start thinking about getting out of this hotel room.

Oh, where would you go?

I don’t know. I mean, you could move out of your parents’ place. We could find a place on our own together, pick up where we left off. What do you say?

[tense music]

What the hell?

Tripp, Stefan, he was just–

I was just helping her out.

No, you save it. I’m not an idiot. OK?

You know what? I was just leaving.

Yeah, you better damn well leave.

OK, Tripp, calm down.

No, keep your paws off my mother, OK?

Tripp, Tripp, your mom’s a grown woman. She can be with whoever she wants.

No way. Not with this dirtbag.

Again, none of your business.

My mother is my business, OK? I’m not going to stand around and watch you use her. That is over. You hear me? You’re going to keep your distance from her from now on, or you are gonna regret it.

[tense music]

I wish we could lay like this forever… and all of our problems would just blow away.

[soft dramatic music]

Are you thinking about your surgery?

Actually, I went to the hospital this morning.


Well, because I think– I think the lump is actually getting bigger.

Why didn’t you tell me?

Oh, there’s nothing to tell yet. They did another ultrasound. I’m waiting to hear what they say. But, you know, being here with you like this, I feel like I can handle just about anything. And I forgot all about it for a little while. That’s no small thing.

[tender music] You have no idea how much this means to me.

Well, actually I do.

It’s overwhelming trying to navigate life with no memory, but you never gave up on me.

I was lost at sea. And you… you are my safe harbor.

And you’re mine.

Yes, I am. And I am going to be with you every step of the way now and always.

Look, I am not questioning your sexual orientation, OK? I’m just– I guess, if I’m being honest, I want to make sure, am I gonna be enough for you?

Johnny, listen to me, OK?

I am ready to commit myself to one person, and you are that person– you, OK? And no one else. You protected me even when we weren’t together, and you have shown me in a million ways that I am enough for you. And yes, Johnny, you are enough for me, more than enough, always and forever. I love you. I love you so much.

I love you too.


[laughs] Whoa! Slow your roll there, fella. Live together?

I’m boundary pushing again, aren’t I?



Yeah, you are.


Look, I moved in with Chad too fast. That was a big mistake. And as any relationship self-help book would tell you– and I’ve read my fair share– just there’s no need to rush. Just enjoy each other. And if it’s real, it’ll last.

OK. All right. But for me, it’s real. I already know that. There’s no doubt in my mind you’re the only person in the world that I want to share my life with, and that will never change.

[soft dramatic music]

What about you? Is it real for you?

[ominous music]

Move that trashcan over here.

[chuckles] At last. Yes. My Katerina will be avenged.

Katerina will be avenged.

Raise your right arm. Now lower it. And now, Mr. Black, let’s try something much more high stakes, shall we?

Put the gun to your head and pull the trigger.

[suspenseful music]

OK. So are we done now? Have we checked off every box on the list of our potential concerns? And are we now ready to vow to be true and love each other until death do us part?

Yeah. Yeah. OK. All right, it’s settled. So, are you ready to be Mrs. DiMera?

I don’t know. It depends. Are you ready to be Mr. Dupree?

Oh, oh, OK. Well, I guess we never really talked about the name change thing. Is there something you want to do about that?

You know what? We have had enough discussions for tonight. I think that the only thing left for us to do is to just seal our love with another kiss.

Yeah, that sounds good– sounds good to me.



[tender music]

Mm. You know what? There is– I’m sorry– there is one other thing left to do on our to-do list.


I was thinking, and just thinking, that we should seal our love with a little more than a kiss.

Mm-hmm. I’ll race you to the bedroom.

Oh. OK.

[laughter] Whoa. Whoa. Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait.

I don’t know how much sleep I’m gonna get tonight. I’ve got so much on my mind.

[sighs] But I am so very happy to have you back here, Abraham, in our bed.

It does feel right, doesn’t it?



[sighs] You know, we could stay up all night and talk. We can do that. But I want you to know that I am– I’m here for you, Paulina, whatever you need, whatever you want.

Hey, please, let’s just take it slow, OK? There’s no rush. You’re not going to fall into another coma. And I’m not going anywhere. So let’s just live in the moment appreciate that we found each other again.

I do appreciate that beyond– beyond words.

And you’re right. You’re right. There’s no need to rush.

Except maybe– maybe to– to sleep. I have to meet Chad in a few hours.

Then why go to sleep at all?

Tripp, that is enough. Stefan, just– just– just– just go. Please, just– just go.

Fine, I– I will go.



I was– I was just– you know what? I’m not going to discuss this with my son. No. Uh-uh. No.

[soft dramatic music]

Stop. Not today. You will serve a purpose. You will be Konstantin’s Pawn, and I will have revenge for my Katerina. But not yet. You will go back to your lovely family. And in seconds, you will return to who you are, Mr. Black.

[ominous music]

[gasping, shuddering]
