Update written by Joseph

Kristen walks through the town square on the phone. She says she can come by after picking Rachel up in a couple of hours. Kristen then hangs up as she sees Alex walking by and asks if he’s heading to Titan. Alex says that’s the plan after he showers and asks what she needs. Kristen claims they just talked in awhile so she was wondering how it’s going there. Alex tells her that things are going well. Kristen asks how Theresa fits in to their new image. Alex questions what she’s implying. Kristen tells him not to play dumb as she’s heard all about Theresa and that Brady told her all about it which Alex questions.

Paulina wakes up in bed with Abe. Abe brings up that she thought she wouldn’t sleep but she slept pretty well. Paulina says last night’s activities definitely relaxed her mind. Abe suggests he can relax her mind some more as they kiss.

Clyde wakes up in his bed in his prison cell to his phone vibrating underneath the mattress. Clyde gets the phone and answers the call. Clyde says he had not been informed of that and that it was not their decision to make. Clyde declares that it’s his business and he’ll run it his way. Clyde says he’ll deal with them later and hangs up. Clyde questions how they could let this happen and declares they will be sorry they did that as they have no idea what he’s capable of, but they’re about to find out.

Police are arresting two men while covering up a dead body. Harris and Jada arrive. Harris approaches the female officer, who tells him that this was the first time she ever shot somebody or even discharged her weapon. Harris encourages that it will be okay, then send her and her partner to wait at the car. Jada comments to Harris that she was pretty shaken up. Harris responds that this is really bad.

Alex asks what the hell Brady is thinking, arguing that he has no business talking about Theresa’s personal life to Kristen or anyone else. Kristen takes that as it’s true that Theresa is using again. Alex clarifies that she had a slip and that she’s made a vow to stay sober and it’s going to stay that way. Alex tells Kristen to be a half decent human for a split second and then maybe she would recognize that Theresa is facing struggles and she would leave her in peace. Kristen laughs and claims she does feel for Theresa since they are both Brady Black’s baby mamas. Alex tells her not to remind him. Kristen says that she and Theresa will always be connected to Brady and he will always be in their lives which is why it makes sense that he talked to her about Theresa’s situation, because he’s worried about her. Alex argues that Brady is worried about Tate. Kristen says it’s not just Tate and asks if Alex senses their strong connection. Alex says that has been made abundantly clear to him but it’s out of necessity. Kristen asks if Alex is sure there’s nothing else going on between Brady and Theresa.

Paulina tells Abe that he brings her so much joy and she’s grateful they can be together like this again. Abe tells her how much he appreciates her patience and understanding. Paulina says they don’t have to rush anything and she knows the memories will come back, but they can create new ones in the mean time. Abe agrees as they kiss.

Jada asks Harris if this was a good bust. Harris says it’s a great bust to get the drugs off the streets, but they needed the dealer alive. Jada goes to check on the other cops as Rafe arrives. Harris asks Rafe how this went so wrong as this was the one dealer with a direct connection to Clyde. Rafe encourages Harris to look at the bright side that they got 7 kilos of drugs off the streets. Harris argues that there’s always going to be more drugs so they need the source. Rafe understands it was a split second decision while Harris argues about wanting Clyde off the streets for good. Chad and Everett then arrive, so Rafe questions what the hell they are doing here. Chad responds that they are here to collect information. Rafe says that’s not okay as this is an active crime scene. Rafe questions how they got there so fast since this bust wasn’t on the radio. Harris then reveals that he called them which Rafe questions. Harris says he did that to buy some extra time before the Lucas story is published which Rafe also questions. Chad explains that Lucas was a confidential informant for the Salem PD and put his life on the line to bust Clyde Weston and that’s the story they are going to tell. Harris says when he was brought up to speed, the only thing he could do was negotiate delaying the story by offering them first word on the drug bust. Rafe asks what Harris was thinking, arguing that this is months of investigation that could all go up in smoke and questions what made him think this was the right call. Harris responds that he didn’t make the call. Rafe asks who did. Chad explains that Lucas reached out to them without Harris knowing. Everett argues that they are all on the same team in wanting drugs out of Salem and now they have an opportunity by working together. Chad asks what Rafe says as they have to print the story with or without his statement. Rafe agrees to get this over with then. Everett insists that he won’t regret this and begins recording as he asks Rafe about the drug bust today. Rafe declares that today, they were successful in removing 7 kilos of drugs from the streets in a warehouse bust, cutting off the pipeline of drugs. Everett asks if he can say specifically what drugs were confiscated. Rafe says the investigation is still ongoing but they were probably street drugs, laced with opioids. Rafe adds that it sends a clear message that they will not stop until they retake their city. Everett asks if there were any injuries or fatalities. Rafe confirms that unfortunately one of their officers was involved in shooting an alleged drug dealer. Rafe adds that the investigation is still ongoing and there will be a separate report released. Harris asks if they are good now. Chad says they will get out of their way now. Everett tells Chad that the police made a major dent in the drug bust today and now the real work begins.

Kristen tells Alex that she’s not trying to upset him as she knows he and Theresa are a thing, but she hates to see him deluding himself. Kristen argues that Theresa and Brady are recovering addicts, so it’s like they’ve been to war together and they share the battle wounds. Kristen compares it to her and Brady’s relationship. Alex argues that they practically despise each other. Kristen says they are forever connected, like Theresa and Brady, because of their child. Alex brings up Kristen depriving Brady of Rachel and thinking they are still connected. Kristen argues that she got sole custody because Brady threatened her with a gun. Alex asks if she had to go to such extreme measures. Kristen asks what he would’ve done. Alex says he wouldn’t have gotten the cops involved. Kristen realizes Brady didn’t tell him the whole story and informs him that Rachel called the cops, not her.

Jada talks to one of the cops about everything that went down in the drug bust. He recalls seeing something flash out of the corner of his eye and then he saw Officer Goldman chasing after the perp. He says he heard two shots and when he caught up, Goldman was obviously shaken up and the suspect was dead. He noted the location of the suspect’s gun and said he put it all in his report. He remarks that this won’t be something he’ll forget as they go to check on Officer Goldman.

Everett and Chad go to prison to meet with Clyde.

Alex tells Kristen that her family dynamic is certainly interesting. Kristen says she could say the same about his. Kristen calls life unpredictable and complicated just like relationships. Kristen advises Alex to be wary and not to give his heart away too quickly. Alex changes the subject to Kristen and asks if she’s seeing anybody which she laughs at. Kristen talks about dating apps being dehumanizing and says she’s too old school for that. Alex says he knows what she means but asks if she ever thinks about getting back with Brady. Kristen says that ship has sailed. Alex urges her to bring it back to sail since they are both single and they know each other. Alex remarks that it’s obvious Kristen still has feelings for Brady, so he question why not pursue it. Kristen guesses Alex just wants Brady out of the picture, so he can have Theresa all to himself.

Paulina tells Abe that with everything going on last night, she forgot to tell him the exciting news that Johnny and Chanel are getting married. Abe calls that wonderful and congratulates her as the mother of the bride. Paulina says she’s so happy for her and the more she sees them together, the more convinced she is that they have what it takes. Paulina says she has to write an announcement for the Spectator. Abe asks if they set a date. Paulina tells him that it’s Valentine’s Day. Abe says she has her work cut out for her then and asks what he can do to help. Paulina feels that he’s done so much already. Abe says they are partners and tells her to put him to work. Paulina asks him to just tell her that today is going to be a good day. Abe responds that every day with her is.

Rafe tells Harris that they’ll get suspects in for interrogation and guesses they’ll be speaking if they want to avoid prison. Harris comments that their boss won’t be happy about this bust. Rafe says speaking of unhappy bosses, he’s really unhappy that Harris kept him out of the loop on this press situation. Harris apologizes and says he had to make a quick decision. Rafe asks if Lucas is staying with Harris at the safehouse. Harris says it was the best plan he could come up with at the time to make sure the bust went off without a hitch. Rafe points out that there was a hitch and talks about Officer Goldman shooting the dealer, noting that he’s going to have her talk to a shrink before putting her back on duty. Harris states that they are going to need all hands on deck for sure. Rafe agrees and says once the article comes out in the press, God only knows what the fallout is going to be.

Clyde asks if Chad is going to introduce him to his buddy. Everett introduces himself as the editor-in-chief of the Spectator. Clyde guesses he must be a recent hire. Everett hoped he could spare some time to speak to them today. Clyde laughs at the idea of Chad pretending to be a journalist. Chad explains that he owns the Spectator now as it was Abigail’s family’s paper. Clyde calls Chad a jack of all trades but a master of none. Clyde praises Stefano but calls Chad a waste of time like this meeting. Everett tells Clyde that taking pot shots at a man who’s wife he brutally murdered is the behavior of someone in a very bad mood, which makes sense in his case, because he’s obviously having a horrible day. Clyde questions what the hell he’s talking about. Clyde asks Chad to enlighten him as to why he’s having a horrible day. Everett guesses Clyde hasn’t heard about the raid. Clyde claims it doesn’t ring a bell. Chad argues that Clyde has eyes and ears everywhere but agrees to play his game and tell him about a very big raid at a warehouse on the edge of town. Chad questions it not ringing any bells for Clyde. Everett calls it one of the biggest raids in Salem history as the police got over 7 kilos and were still counting the cash. Chad tells Clyde that has to hurt. Clyde claims not to know what he’s talking about. Chad and Everett talk about how 7 kilos could go for a couple million. Chad says that would make him very angry and he’d probably want to make someone pay. Chad asks what Clyde would do. They hear a phone vibrating. Chad and Everett talk about how they had to leave their phones when they got there, so they question Clyde having a contraband phone on him. Chad suggests Clyde check his messages. Everett bets it’s about that raid and all that lost product. Chad guesses someone is fairly nervous to pass that along. Chad tells Clyde to go ahead and check his messages as they won’t tell anybody.

Kristen tells Alex to admit that he wants Brady out of the way so that it’s smooth sailing for he and Theresa. Alex argues that he’s also looking out for what’s best for Kristen and Rachel. Alex asks how nice it would be for Rachel to have his parents back together. Kristen argues that Alex doesn’t give a damn about her and Rachel but he’s sweating bullets over Brady and Theresa. Alex says it’s only because Theresa has been leaning on Brady lately and he’s been hanging around a lot more since the slip. Kristen says they are also dealing with the fallout of Tate’s arrest. Alex complains that it’s like two magnets drawn together every time he turns around, so if he doesn’t redirect Brady’s attention, his relationship with Theresa is probably doomed. Kristen asks how she can help him.

Jada checks on Officer Goldman, who claims she’s okay. Jada says she wasn’t after her first shooting and explains it was a domestic violence case when she was in Seattle. Jada recalls thinking she had everything in control until the guy suddenly pulled a gun out and fired it, so she had no time to think and she couldn’t take the chance of someone getting hurt, so that was the first time she discharged her weapon on duty. Jada says she can still smell the gunpowder and see the blood. Officer Goldman responds that the blood is all she can see. Jada says it was a clean shooting. Rafe comes over and agrees that she did the right thing based on their initial reporting. She says she took a life so she’s having a hard time reconciling that she did the right thing. Jada says that’s only natural to feel that way but she did what she had to do and she’s not alone. Jada encourages that she will come out of this okay.

Chad asks what Everett thinks. Everett says not really what he expected or that tough really. Chad remarks that prison can break some men and asks if that’s what happened to Clyde. Clyde asks what they want from him. Chad says the truth is, he doesn’t even like to hear his name, let alone be in the same room as him but their job is to tell both sides of the story. Everett tells Clyde they want to hear his side of the story and they are giving him a forum to tell it. Clyde questions what the hell he’s talking about. Everett brings up that Clyde claims to be an innocent man. Clyde says that he is, so Everett asks him to expand on that. Clyde argues that if they had done their homework, they would know he’s been a model citizen in prison ever since he starting serving time for the brutal murder of Chad’s wife, Abigail. Clyde bets Chad misses her dearly and says he can still see her face, begging him to save her life. Everett holds Chad back from going after Clyde and reminds him to stay focused. Clyde still doesn’t know why they are really here. Chad responds that he wanted to see the look on his face when he learned that his empire was crumbling to the ground. Clyde wishes him luck with that. Chad says he doesn’t need luck, just facts and the fact is that his reign of terror is coming to an end. Chad declares that when Clyde loses everything, he will take great satisfaction in telling the world all about it in his newspaper while Clyde rots away in prison like the rat he is, never again to see the light of day.

Kristen tells Alex that he said himself that if she’s more present in Brady’s life and he’s less present in Theresa’s, then it’s a win-win for everyone. Alex still feels like there’s a catch. Kristen comments that they are just helping them both out since they both want to break the toxic chain between them. Alex asks if she’s sure she’s ready to get back with Brady again. Kristen says time will tell and admits it’s hard being hurt over and over again, but there will always be a place in her heart saved just for Brady. Kristen decides it’s time to change things and focus on herself. Alex says he’s liking this. Kristen says they are on the same page and if they want to achieve their goal, they’ll have to be in touch. Alex asks if she’s suggesting they spy and gossip about Brady and Theresa. Kristen jokes that it’s intel since the last thing they want is for them to end up together.

Paulina completes her engagement announcement. Abe asks what else is on the agenda for today. Paulina says she has a conference call in half an hour for the geocaching event, then after that, she needs to start thinking about her mother of the bride outfit. Abe says it would be his honor to go with her. Paulina then gets a call from the hospital and answers it. Paulina takes deep breaths and says she understands. Paulina thanks them for letting her know and hangs up. Abe asks what’s going on. Paulina informs him that they got the ultrasound results and the tumor has grown, so they don’t want to wait and they are moving their surgery up to the end of this week. Abe says they have a plan then. Paulina cries that she thought she would have more time to prepare mentally. Paulina tries to tell herself that she’s going to be fine and will deal with this. Paulina admits she’s scared but she won’t let the fear overcome her. Paulina declares that she has Abe. Abe says they will go through this together and they are a team.

Alex suggests Kristen spend a little more time at Titan, feeling she’s more than qualified to join his executive team. Kristen acknowledges her experience. Alex says they could use someone like her. Kristen thinks she could make this change. Alex adds that she’ll also be in closer proximity to Brady. Kristen calls it an interesting proposition and agrees to consider it. Alex says if they are going to make this project work, they both have to contribute in and out of the workplace so she’s going to have to increase Brady’s visitation with Rachel, building it up to family sleepovers. Alex insists that they have the best intentions and motives here with happiness for him, Theresa, Kristen, Brady and most importantly, Rachel. Kristen agrees and toasts to happiness.

Everett thinks they are done here. Clyde suggests he forget everything he learned her today as that would be best for all parties. Chad asks if that’s a threat. Clyde calls it more like a warning from a concerned citizen who would hate to see anything bad happen to those who are close to them back in Salem. Everett warns that empty threats won’t prevent the truth from coming out. Everett tells Clyde that he had the chance to make a statement, so now it’s their turn to do their job and they’ll make sure he gets a copy of the paper. Chad adds that when they do expose everything Clyde has done, the justice system will make sure he serves two life sentences. Clyde calls for the guard and exits the room. Chad declares to Everett that it’s time to end this.

Harris complains that they were so close to nailing Clyde and asks Officer Goldman to walk them through it one more time. She explains that the suspect fired, she returned fire to ensure no one else got hurt and because she didn’t want to die. Harris tells her it’s okay as she followed protocol. Harris tells Rafe that they are going to have to come at Clyde from another angle and soon, because once Clyde finds out about this, all hell is going to break loose and he’s going to want somebody to pay.
