[tense music]


Mm. Oh. What in God’s name? Oh. Oh, hey.

Sorry, my hands are full. But wait until you see what I got, all your favorites!

My favorite what?

Oh, favorite everything. We are about to have a mother-daughter night that you will never forget.

Oh, Chanel, darling, you know, my surgery is in the morning. I’m not really in the mood for–

OK, well, we are just gonna have to get you in the mood. I’ve got your favorite nail polish for your manicure, a la Chanel. I got a puzzle, pieces because I know how much you hate ,.

Yeah, we’d be up all night with it.

I got this deck of cards and all your junk food faves. Let’s see, we got crinkle chips, some cheap-ass cupcakes that you love, and those hard caramel candy thingies.

Chanel, I can’t eat anything after midnight tonight because of the anesthesia!

OK, well, we still have a few hours left until midnight, so we better chow down before the clock strikes :. And let’s see. If that doesn’t cheer you up, I know this will.

[laughs] It’s girls’ night.

[quirky music]


Oh, whoa, let me help you with that.

Thank you.


So you’ve been busy.

Yeah, well, the downside to this morning’s bust was endless paperwork of an officer-involved shooting.

Yeah, how’s Goldman doing?

Oh, she’s OK. I sent her home after her mandatory meeting with the department shrink.

Yeah, she’s gonna have a lot to work through.


[chuckles] Yeah, that’s for sure. I know. I’ve been there. But you know, she’s a tough cookie, and she’s gonna get through it. And on a more positive note, we got a lot of product out the street today, and we’re a major thorn in Clyde’s side. So, all in all, it’s a good day.


[tense music]



Lucas, are you all right? Lucas!

[fire alarm blaring]



Oh, my God!

Oh, my God.

Hello, all.


Oh, hey there. Nice to see you fully dressed.

You might want to lower your voice, huh?


And look, you’re gonna forget about what you saw, right?

I wish I could. The image is kind of seared into my brain.

OK, Tripp, remember what we talked about, about respecting each other’s boundaries?


Yeah, OK, good. And out of that respect, the two of you are never going to talk about that joke, about that moment, ever again. Got it? All right, I’m gonna grab some fresh air.

So, how about that Super Bowl?


[tense music]

Oh, my God. Oh, God. Oh, God, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. Harris, Harris, Harris, Harris, Harris. OK, oh, no, no, no, no. Stay, stay, stay, stay, stay, stay, stay, stay, stay.

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

Chanel, I appreciate this. I really do. But are you really up for a night of fun and games? You’re supposed to be getting married tomorrow.

Hey, hey, when life hands you lemons, you make lemonade. You taught me that.

Yeah, but those lemons come from my tree. Oh, this is all my fault.

OK, would you please stop saying that? Stop making yourself the big bad witch here, OK? No more guilt and no more negative feelings. We got junk food to eat and not a lot of time left in which to eat it. We got puzzles to make, movies to watch. Oh, and pizza’s on the way.

Chicago style?

Of course, it’s Chicago style. What do you think this is, my first rodeo?

All right, so, let’s start the puzzle and the movie.

Ugh, what are my choices? We’ve got “Bad Boys II,” “How Stella Got Her Groove Back,” and “Get Out.”

Oh, mm-mm. I’m not watching “Get Out” before my surgery. Uh-huh, I’ll be worried that they’ll be trying to transplant somebody’s brains into my head while I’m passed out on the table. No, thank you. I think Stella can help me get my groove back when I’m recovering. So let’s go with “Bad Boys.” I can use the laughs.

All right, you got it.

[phone ringing]

Oh. Hello? Yes, I’ll accept the call. It’s Lani.

[tender acoustic music]

All right, so county coroner’s office took custody of the deceased at :. The next of kin were notified at :. The coroner’s office is starting an official investigation into his cause of death.

OK. When’s the autopsy?

Well, considering the circumstances, our drug-dealing body was moved to the front of the line. So it was actually performed this afternoon. We should have the results tomorrow.

Good, that’ll confirm that he fired his weapon.

Mm-hmm. As well as wound trajectory and if he has any opioids in his system.

Right. So does this count as our dinner date?

Well, considering I don’t see any end to this paperwork, I’m gonna go with yes.


[exhales sharply] Well, I’ll take what I can get.

You’re the best. What about Harris? I still don’t have his report yet. Is he around?

[tense music]

No, no, no, no, no, no, no. No, no, no, no, no, no, no.

Oh. Oh, God, oh, God, no, no.




No, no, no, no, no, hang on, hang on, hang on, hang on, hang on, hang on, hang on, hang on.

Look, Tripp, it’s nobody’s business, OK? So please, don’t say a word to anybody about what you saw at your place.

Look, who am I gonna tell? And you heard what my mom said. I promised her that we would respect her boundaries from now on.

[phone ringing] Mom?

Tripp, Tripp, get to the loading dock right now. Harris has been shot.

OK, are you OK?

Mom, are you OK?

No, I’m fine. Were you hit?

No, I’m fine. Look, nothing! Mom.

Hey, it’s me! It’s me, OK? All right, you two OK? I was outside. I heard the shots.

Yeah, we’re OK. There was someone there, and they had a gun. I shot him. I don’t know if I hit him.

But you’re both OK?


Yeah, we’re fine.

All right, stay here, OK? Stay here. Lock the door. Get down on the floor, both of you. And stay away from those windows, right? Got that?

OK, go, go, go, get Doug and the kids and get out safe. I’ll call .

Fire! Fire, everybody! Get up! Fire!

Where’s the extinguisher? Where’s the extinguisher?


Yes, yes, of course. I will make sure to text Eli updates as soon as I get them. OK, now, quick, say goodbye to Mama before your time runs out. OK, love you.


Oh, yes, oh, thank you for calling, sweetheart. Mm, it means so much to me. Mm-hmm, love you too. Well, I appreciate the prayers, baby. Bye, bye now. Oh. Ooh, so good to hear Lani’s voice, just what I needed.

Yeah, I know. I wish she could be here with us for girls’ night.

Oh, me too. Me too. My Lord willing, her release come soon. Oh, maybe she’ll be back in Salem in time for your new wedding day.

Yeah, maybe.

OK, well, let’s start the puzzle and then the movie. And where you hiding those cheap ass cupcakes? Where they at?

It’s all right, sweethearts. We’re safe now. You’re safe here.

Where is Chad?

He’s still in the house.


[tense music]

Julie, no, no!

Katie, it’s me. Open up. All right, I cleared the scene. The pub is secure. The shooter’s gone. Did either of you get a good look at him?

I didn’t see anything. It was too dark.

They were dressed in black. I just saw the gun.

Well, it’s a good thing you acted fast, Kate. You scared him off.

Not only that, but you saved my life.

[tender acoustic music]

[tense music]

What happened?

I don’t know, I don’t know. I just found him lying here, bleeding.

Call .

No, no, I called you.

Wendy, call . Tell them we have an officer down behind the bistro. We need paramedics.

Oh, my God.

Hey, give me something that I can use to stop this bleeding.

Like what?

Anything, towels, cloths, whatever you have.

Yes, there’s napkins. There’s napkins right inside the door in the laundry service bag. Just rip it open. Stefan, go!

Harris, Harris, can you hear me? Damn, I need scissors.

It feels like a single bullet wound to the chest, one in the left arm, significant bleeding.

We need paramedics. We have a police officer down at the loading docks behind the bistro.

Tell him it’s a gunshot wound to the chest and one to the left arm.

A —, gunshot wound to the chest and left arm.

Hey, we’re not gonna leave you.

Here, here, here.

Hold him. OK. Airway’s clear, shallow breathing, possible tension pneumothorax. I need an occlusive bandage. Do you have a first aid kit?

In the kitchen.

I’ll go get it.

Oh, God, this wasn’t supposed to happen.

What do you mean by that?


I will protect you because I love you. I’d think maybe you already knew, but I love you, Ava.

Well, you better learn how to stop. I mean it. You better get over that.

OK, you don’t have to stop.

Will you trust me, please?

Yes. It doesn’t matter now. Just don’t die. Oh, God, Harris, please. Please don’t die. Don’t die.

[sirens blaring]

Ooh, ooh, I am stuffed to the gills.

Me too. You want me to paint your nails now?

Well, will I have to sit up?

A little.

Then, no.

[phone rings]

Don’t move.


[phone beeps]

Hey, boo. Yeah, it’s going well. No, you cannot come over. I told you that this is girls’ night. “Bad Boys II,” you were right. Thank you for getting the DVDs. Yeah, OK, I love you too, Johnny. I’ll tell her. See you tomorrow.

[soft dramatic music]

Johnny sends his love, and he wishes you the best for tomorrow’s surgery.

Mm, I’ll take all the good juju I can get.

He’s out shopping, and he wanted to stop by, but I told him that this is our night.

Shopping! I bet he’s getting a Valentine’s Day surprise for you.

Well, he is pretty, pretty good with surprises.

Good going, Katie. All that practice at the gun range paid off.

Yeah, that shooter was definitely after me.

Yeah, we need to tell Harris about this.

You mean the guy who told Lucas he was going to be just fine? Because, you know, if you hadn’t snuck down to the kitchen to raid the kitchen, and if I hadn’t thought I heard an intruder and went down after you.

I know.

Katie, look, Lucas is right here. He is fine. He’s just fine, OK?

[sirens blaring]

Can you feel–

Oh, God. Save him. You have to save him, Tripp.

[soft dramatic music]

Oh, my God, it’s Harris.

What’s his condition?

Approximately -year-old male, unknown downtime, gunshot wound through the chest and the left arm. No apparent exit wound to the chest. Not moving, intermittent gasping, needs fluids.

OK, get this area cordoned off. Then start canvassing. See if any of the surrounding businesses caught anything on camera.


What the hell happened?

I don’t know. I just– I came out here, and I found him lying in blood.

[phone ringing]

Hernandez. Oh, my God, yeah. There’s been another shooting, the Brady Pub. I need you to go over there now.

Chad! Chad! Chad, stop! Stop! You can’t put it out! It’s too big. Come out!

I can do it!

No, come out! Come out!

[upbeat music]

OK, Mama, so do you have any s?

Go fish.

Oh, got it!

Oh, you always were a shock at this game! Oh, it was your favorite.

Well, thank you for indulging me. It makes me very happy.


[chuckles] You know what makes me happy?


You and Johnny together.

Yeah, I am a very lucky girl.

Well, I may be a little bit biased, but I think he’s the lucky one. But who cares who’s lucky? It’s just so wonderful that you found your true love.

Yeah, yeah, it is.

You know, I don’t think I ever asked you, but what is it about Johnny that makes him the one?

Oh, my gosh, let’s see. Where do I start? Well, he makes me feel safe, and also empowered, and he really just accepts me and respects me for who I am. And then, he’s also fun, and he makes me laugh, and he’s so creative and curious, and I just– I love how honest he is, and he’s strong, but he can also be vulnerable. And, you know, he’s really just the whole package.


And here, I thought you were just gonna say he’s a great kisser.


Well, we do have some really great chemistry, but it really is so much more than that.


[phone ringing]

Whoa. Oh. It’s Grand Central Station in here tonight. Oh. Hello?

[tense music] Oh, my God. What? When did this happen?

Is he alive?

Who is it?

Yeah, keep me posted. You understand?

Detective Harris Michaels was shot tonight by an unknown assailant.

Is he OK?

Well, they don’t know yet. They just found him. He’s being treated on the scene.

Where is he?

Over by the loading docks behind the bistro. I should go to the hospital.

No, no, absolutely not, OK? You are supposed to be preparing for your surgery tomorrow. You let the deputy mayor who was supposed to be filling in for you cover that. Let him handle it.

I know, I know, yeah. But I need to get over there because I am–

The only thing we can do for him right now is pray, OK? And we can do that right here.

Oh, Lord, where are they?

I have to go find them.

No, Thomas, no. That’s too dangerous. Just please stay here.

Hey, come here.

Oh, oh, oh! Oh, thank God!

You OK?

Thank God!


Are you OK? It’s OK. It’s OK.

[sirens blaring distantly]

Come on, Harris. Pick up. Damn it, voicemail. When I get my hands on that guy, I swear.

Somebody broke in. They were armed. Kate shot at them. They took off.

What did he look like?

I mean, I really couldn’t tell. I couldn’t see much. They were dressed in black.

OK, where did this happen?

Right here.

In Harris’s room? I need to get in there.

No! You can’t do that.

Why not?

Well, it’s just a matter of privacy. I can’t let you in my tenant’s room.

OK, look, a crime went down here tonight, and as a former police officer, you know just as well as I do that I need to investigate in order to do my job.

[soft dramatic music]

It’s you. This is your safe house?

Yeah, yeah, I’ve been here the whole time.

I live right down the hall, and I had no idea.

We need to get in touch with Michaels, let him know what happened.

That won’t be possible. Harris was shot tonight.


And we don’t even know yet if he’s going to make it.

Pulse is steady. Harris, can you hear me? Harris?

We don’t know what happened. We were just all– we were all inside.

Harris? Harris, Harris, I need you to wake up now, OK? Harris.

You didn’t hear anything, gunshots?

I need you to wake up.

No, nothing.

Come on, now.

I just– I came out. I needed a break, and I needed some fresh air. And I just looked– I looked over, and there he was. He was just– he was just– he was just– he was lying there, bleeding. Then he looked at me for a minute, and then, he just closed his eyes.

I don’t have a pulse. He’s unresponsive. Get the defib ready.

[tense music]

Oh, God, that poor man hanging to life. Oh, what’s wrong with this world?

Yeah, was he shot in the line of duty?

Oh, we don’t know yet. Oh, it just goes to show, you never know when your number might be up. Chanel, Chanel, honey, we need to talk.

Oh, Mama, no.

Yes, yes. Now, you listen to me. Now, if anything should happen to me during my surgery tomorrow, now, the key to the safe deposit box…

I know where it is!

Is in the bottom of the jewelry box in the secret compartment.

I said I know where it is.

Well, I’m just reminding you of it, OK? OK, now, everything that you need is right in there.

No, everything I need is right here.

Oh, you don’t have to shout!

Yes, I do, because I’m trying to get through to you, Mama, because I need you to understand that you are my mother, and I love you, and I need you, so don’t you dare talk about leaving this planet any time soon because I will not put up with it. Do you hear me?

Oh, all right. Baby, all right.

[tender music] You have officially gotten through to me, OK? I’m sorry. I’m– I’m so sorry.

Yeah, you should be.

Well, OK, how about this? I promise I will not leave this planet for a very long, long time. And in fact, I’m gonna go in there tomorrow and kick cancer’s ass so hard, they won’t even know what hit it.

That’s more like it.

Oh, God. How I love you!

Damn it. Harris was shot?

What happened?

Last I know is that Tripp was working on him at the scene. He was shot on the loading dock at the bistro.

Well, who shot him?

Do you have him in custody?

Look, we don’t know that yet, OK? I’m sorry. But what happened here tonight?

I was in the room with Lucas. I had just said good night. I turned off the light. I started to the door, and I saw the door handle move. The door opened, I saw a gun, and I fired.

OK, how many shots? Did you hit the shooter?

I don’t know. They just took off.

OK, OK, we’ll get forensics in here and see what they can find.

Wait a minute. No one can know I’m here.

Look, I’ll move you to my room.

No, no need. We’ll take him to our apartment.

Yeah, that’s a good idea.

No, OK, how about we do this, OK? I’ll get the unis downstairs, gather them up for a briefing and make sure you’re alone up here, OK? And then, we’ll make the move. Got it?

Yeah, yeah, I got it.

All right, great. I’m going to have a police– a strong police presence here until we can figure out what we’re gonna do next.

[tense music]

Are all your family members are accounted for?

Yes, we’re all here, yeah.

What about pets, cats or dogs.

No, no, there are no pets.

Please, can you save the house?

We’re doing our best, ma’am. We want to get you transported to the hospital soon to make sure everyone’s A-OK.

[soft dramatic music]

It’s our family home, for generations! All of our history– all of our history is there!

Check pulse.

No pulse.

I don’t have a pulse.

Oh, God, no, no.

Charging. Stop CPR. Clear. V-fib.

Stand clear.

Shocking. Shock.

Continuing compressions. Come on, Harris. Come on, come on!

[tense music]

OK, you should get to bed now, Mama. Get some rest.

Oh, mm-mm, not yet. I got to clean up this mess first.

Would you please just stop, let me do the cleaning, and you go get some sleep.

Well, honey, I don’t think I’ll be able to tonight, you know? But I’m feeling much more positive than before, you know, thanks to my wonderful daughter that– and I know I’m gonna date myself with this expression. I’m still wound up like a cheap clock.

OK, well, I don’t really know what that means, but I do have an idea of how you could wind down.

OK, let’s hear it.

OK, so, I was thinking that maybe I could crawl into your bed and lay with you like I did when I was little.

Hmm, you know, you’d probably take up less in the bed now than you did then. I swear, you’d end up sleeping sideways with a foot in my face. I’d be teetering on the bed, trying to hang on.

Well, so, is that a yes?

Well, you know what? I’d like that very much, cuddling up with my baby tonight just like we used to. Oh, you’re not gonna make me– you’re not going to make me do those little shadow finger things on the wall, are you?


Well, I guess I better get my flashlight.


Oh, you know what, Mom? I just want to say that I am really proud that you’re my mom.

Aw, and I just want to say, you are my darling daughter, so, so sweet, so kind, so loving, so perfect in every way. You make me determined, and just like I said before, but it damn well bears worth repeating, I plan on sticking around this planet for a long, long time.

Well, thank God he’s breathing. Thank God.

[tense music]

How the hell did this happen?

I’m sure as hell gonna find out.

I’m gonna ride with them. He’s lost a lot of blood. Kayla, it’s bad.

This is all Clyde West. And you know that, right?

It sure looks like it.

How did he find him? No one knew that Lucas was here.

Somebody did.

We’ll find him a new safe house.

It’s not gonna make any difference. As long as Clyde Weston is out there, as long as he’s still alive, I’m never gonna be safe from him.

[soft dramatic music]

Oh, I’m so sorry, my darling. But the important thing is that we are all safe.

Yes, I know, but I’m watching half my life go up in flames.

Daddy, what about my car collection and Charlotte’s princesses?

You know what? We’re going to get you all new stuff, OK, buddy? I promise. But for right now, we have to count our blessings and just thank God that we’re all OK.

I know. And I did already, thank God, I mean.

Yeah, that’s good. That’s good.

Daddy? What about all the pictures of mommy?

[phone ringing]

[phone beeps]


[deep voice]

Maybe next time you’ll listen.
