Once you’re added to the National Organ Transplant Waitlist, you may receive an organ that day. Or you may wait.

I shouldn’t read any more of this. No, darling, you shouldn’t. But it won’t matter. It doesn’t make a difference what happens, happens. Meanwhile, we’re all here for you. And we’re not going anywhere, Mama, until you get that call saying that they found your heart. Hello, everyone. Oh, hello. Of course. I’m Marlena.

Oh, hi there. It’s so good to see you. It’s so good to be home with your family. Oh, it is so good to be home.

Hello, my friend. You came. Of course I came. Marlena, I need to talk to you.

Ava? Hey.

Do you have any leads? Well, same as when we spoke this morning. Nothing concrete. But I promise you my people are working, doing everything they can to track down Tripp and Wendy. Assume you haven’t heard anything? Um, no. Nothing. Okay, well let me know if you do. I know you pretty well, Ava. I assume you’re using your connection to do everything you can to find Tripp.

And what mother wouldn’t? I’m gonna do anything I can to find my son. I get it. Just be careful. Don’t cross any lines, okay?

Goldman. It’s you.

Yes, darling. I’m still here. Well, Doug, sweetie pie, I’ve been wandering around like crazy trying to find something that will open it, a little key or

Because this is not your garden variety time capsule. I’m being careful. I know. Well, I’ll be home soon. I love you too.


sand through the hourglass, so days of our lives.

I’m here. I’m happy to talk to you. Alone?

Uh, yeah, we’ll go grab some coffee, huh? We’ll be back in about 10 minutes. Okay, Mom? Mm hmm. Take your time.

Okay, I’m here. What do you want to talk about? Marlena.

I’m scared.

Okay, you know what? I will do my job, and you do yours. Alright, Commissioner? Alright, you always got your back up, don’t you Eva? Okay, you know what, Rafe? This is not the day to mess with me, okay? I am a mother whose son is missing. Okay. I was just offering helpful advice.

Okay. Look, I’m sorry. I’m sorry I snapped at you. I am just, I am on edge. Obviously. Okay. I’m sorry. It’s okay. Yeah, I’m sorry. I gotta go. It’s, uh, police business.

Coleman! AHHHHH!

You scared me to death! Well, you give as good as you get. Everett! What were you doing here at this hour? I was I was driving by and I saw a flashlight moving around in the house and I thought somebody had broken in. Nobody broke in. Thank you. That was very nice of you. It’s nice to know there are decent people in the world.

Would you mind shining your flashlight? I dropped mine and I dropped the phone. Oh, there they are. Thank you. Thank you.

I thought you were the arsonist. Come back to finish the job. Is that a possibility? After that threatening phone call that Chad got while the house was burning down, I think anything’s possible. What are you doing here? All alone at this hour?

Well, actually I’m obsessed. While the family was here checking out the damage, we found a time capsule. Little Thomas was playing in the fireplace with the poker and it just fell out. Time capsule? Yeah. Put together by my grandparents in 1966. Wow. Amazing. Have you opened it? No. That’s the problem. What do you mean?

Did you take it to a locksmith? Of course. He was no help at all. He couldn’t figure out how to open it without forcing it, which might break it and then ruin whatever is inside. You see, my grandfather, Thomas Horton, loved puzzles. And this is not the first time he challenged the family with something like this.

So I want to open it the way my grandfather intended. I get that. But what are you actually doing here? I thought if I looked around quietly by myself, checking everything, I might find a clue or some secret little key that would help me open the darn thing. You want some help? I wonder what mom wanted to talk to Marlena about.

Do you know why she wanted to see her? No, I don’t, I don’t. I’m guessing that she is Worried sick, and she’s hoping that Marlena can offer some, some comfort. You know, we’re, we are, we’re battling against time. I know. And the reality is that, uh, this is completely out of our hands. I know. Mother is our rock.

She is our core. And we just, we can’t afford to lose her, we can’t. No, dad, we won’t. We won’t.

Everyone keeps saying you’re wrong, you’re a fighter, you make it through all this,

but I’m not, I’m not feeling strong, Marlena, right now, all I’m feeling is scared because you see, I, I love my life. And my sweet family, my job, my friends, and the thought of leaving, all that.

I want you to know something. You have got a lot of years ahead of you. Okay, a lot of living to do. I want you to remember that. You know, heart recipients are living so much longer now. That can happen with you as well, and I, and I, I know we’re gonna fight very hard to find you the right donor. So it’s, it’s natural for you to feel frightened, but you can also be very strong.

So You can be scared and strong at the same time. Yes, you can. A lot of us fight battles that way all the time. Look, you have got a family who loves you and is standing by you, and I think if you, if you feel you can, let them know you’re right. Let them know what you’re going through and let them, let them comfort you.

But I’m not sure I want anyone to know what I’m going through, Marlena. Well, maybe it’s because I’m physically weak. But, much as you say, there’s still hope. I’m having a hard time clinging to that. That’s the problem. Fighting spirit. Everyone admires me for saluting me right now. My mind, it keeps fast forwarding to a future where,

For what? Where I won’t be here anymore. Not here for my husband, for my daughters, for my friends. So can you help me, Marlena? Can you help me to feel more hopeful? Can you help me to stop fast forwarding to darkness?

What’s going on? What’s the origin? You’re not going to believe it. I found our mole. Who? It’s Goldman. What? Are you serious? I just passed her on the square. She blew me off. How do you know it’s her? Because somebody tried to kill me. She allowed it to happen.

Good thing we found this lantern, huh? Oh, you found the lantern. I’m so short, when I go in the garage, I never even look at what’s on the top shelf. But you can reach it. Oh, my tippy toes. Everett, are you sure you want to spend the evening with an old lady looking for clues? I mean, there must be something exciting for a young man like you to be doing.

Oh, what do you mean? I love a good mystery. And besides, uh, curiosity is, uh, well, half the reason I became a journalist. What’s the other half? Oh, um, this may sound pretentious, but a burning desire to spread the truth. Sounds pretentious. I’ll indulge you. Thank you. Anyway, um, what a great story a time capsule discovery would make.

Yeah, well not if I can’t open it. What are we, what are we looking for? Clues? Or a wanky key? Wanky? A wanky key? If you say so. You know what’s wanky? When I look at you in this light,

You look so much like my cousin, Nick, God rest his soul. He, uh, He was a very promising young man until he lost his way. I’m sorry. What happened to him? He went over to the dark side. Sadly. Anyway. Yeah. Your family has such fascinating stories. I’d love to hear more sometime. Always a reporter, huh? I mean, this house must be Bursting with interesting tales, right?

Family histories buried in the woodwork. Secrets whispered from the walls. Scandal dripping from the eaves. Everett, I don’t enjoy the image of scandal dripping from my eaves. Okay, I’ll, uh, I’ll stop. Thank you. Let’s move on to modern times. So, what’s a story? With you and Stephanie. Do you think there’s a future there?

As you begin to feel stronger. I know you will see yourself. Is that healthy? Vibrant woman. You’ve always been the woman who Lights up every room she walks into. Oh, thank you, Marlena. Oh, you’ve given me respect and comfort. Uh, and, oh, right now I, honestly, I’m feeling a bit stronger after having taken in all you just said.

I’m so glad to hear that. Oh. Now just take this time to enjoy your loved ones. And friends. Yeah. Oh. Right, right now, in this moment anyway, I feel like that fighting spirit is winning over that fear. Thanks to you.

Someone tried to kill you here. Yes, he was disguised wearing a cervical mask. He came in not long ago. He tried to inject something in my IV bag and I fought him off. I was, I couldn’t detain him. The hitman, he ran off and then Goldman is standing right there looking shocked that I was alive and then she took off.

Obviously, she let him in. Unreal. That, that explains it. That explains why she blew me off in the square. She acts like she’s just a straight arrow, stickler for protocol. Yeah, makes her a perfect cover for a double agent. Yeah. Yeah, well thank God you’re okay. I’ll put a new guard at the door, alright?

Obviously this recent development sure puts a new spin on Xander Cook being the assassin. And maybe the guy today was the same one that shot you, came back to try and finish the job. It’s very possible. Yeah. Yeah, there’s a lot we gotta dig into. But first, we gotta find Goldman.

Speak. Is it done? He’s still alive. What? Are you kidding me? Damn, what, uh, What does he got, a guardian angel or something? What the hell happened this time? I don’t know. Maybe Tamara botched it. Maybe he chickened out. Maybe he double crossed me. I saw him run off. And then Then what? Tell me. I’ve been made.

Are you sure? I could tell by the way Harris looked at me. He knows. Well, why didn’t you take him out? A nurse walked in, but there were too many witnesses. I I had to take off.

Alright. We’re just gonna have to move up the timeline then. You know what you have to do next. What about Tripp and Wendy? They’ve seen my face. They know who I am. Well, that’s your problem, sweetheart. And I suggest you solve it. Fast.

Let me get this straight. Jada Hunter has a wedding photo of the two of you as bride and groom? Crazy, right? I’d say so. I thought I must just look like the guy. We’re like twins. Well, it does happen. Um. Adrian Kariakis and Bonnie Lockhart. Look almost identical. Two different women. Different personalities.

Only one of which is tolerable. I mean, that’s the thing. I mean, doppelgangers do exist. It is a phenomena. But Jade, she was hell bent on proving that I’m this Bobby Stein, and so she She ran my fingerprints, and um,

I, I can’t believe this, but um, yeah, they came up as a, as a match, to Bobby’s. Fingerprints don’t lie. I know. I know that. I mean, uh, that’s why it’s such a nightmare for me. I mean, granted, there are, there are gaps in my memory since the accident. I just, how could I have forgotten that much of my life? It doesn’t, it doesn’t make any sense.

No, it doesn’t. Unless you’re lying.

You know, it warms my heart how much you love my mom. I mean, to head after everything that’s happened. You losing your memory, us being kept away from her, and we both found our way back. It was a miracle. It was. And I have to say, your love for each other, you and mom’s, it really does give me hope. It reminds me that even through the darkest times, Dad, we can still find a way to push to the light.

Paulina, a person who donates their heart or other organs when they die is never ever coerced. They do that because it’s It’s their wish. And it’s a kind and enormous gesture. And in a strange way, it Let’s a part of them continue on in the world after they’ve gone. So no guilt, okay? O okay. No guilt. Oh, Marlena, you’re so good to me.

Always there for me. Well, when Lonnie didn’t know I was a mama, when I needed advice about AIDS,

He is my honor. Always has been to be there for you. Right now. I think you need to rest. Uh, yeah. Yes, I do. Oh, I feel at peace now. I think I finally know what I need to do next.

Yeah, I need you to put out a BOLO, an Officer Rebecca Goldman. Yep, that’s the Becca Goldman. Yeah, you have the description. Consider her armed and dangerous. I want her brought in immediately. Man, the rest of the force is going to be blown away when I get that call. Yeah, and now that we’ve exposed our dirty cop, this is all starting to make sense.

I mean, it’s no wonder Goldman shot Clyde’s guy in the drug bust. Obviously, she needed that drug dealer dead, otherwise he would have let us write to Clyde.


Tell me that you’ve made some progress on that video with Kip. The waiting is killing me.

Can you call me?

Can you call me and just tell me that you found our son?

Where the hell is that coming from?


I’m not lying. I’m not. Everything I’ve told you is all I know. I mean, my God, I would never deceive Stephanie. Or anyone, for that matter. It’s just, it’s not who I am. I’ve always tried. As far as I know, to be a, a, a decent person, you know, caring and loyal and, and hardworking.

I really hope you believe me, Julie. Because I think you’re a wonderful person, and frankly, I just, I need someone to believe me, to not, to not hate me. I don’t hate you. Why would I hate you? I will leave you, Everett.

Thank you.

You say you like Horton family stories, I’ll tell you a Horton family story. My uncle Tommy, who was my mother’s twin, went off to serve in the Korean War. Did not come home. We all assumed he was dead. Years later He appears in Salem, in the company of my Uncle Bill, and neither one of them knew that they were brothers.

This is what happened. While he was overseas, Uncle Tommy developed amnesia. He was captured, and his face was disfigured when he was a prisoner of war. Somewhere along the way he got plastic surgery after that. Looked completely different. Not to mention he had another name. Dr. Mark Brooks. Wow. But, and, how did he figure out who he really was?

Oh, um, my grandfather, Dr. Tom, and my uncle, Mickey, started an investigation. Precipitated by my grandmother, Alice, standing behind that sofa. And noticing a little tiny birthmark on the back of Tommy’s neck. Are you serious? Very interesting. Yeah, interesting. Heartwarming, in the end. Well, I hope when you find out your story you don’t discover that you and Stephanie are related and then she has to run off to a nunnery.

Fingers crossed. I am very sorry. For what you’re going through. And what a blow this must be to Stephanie. I mean, that’s, uh, That’s the hardest part. I mean, she’s just really hurt and confused. Understandably so. I just Got her back, Julie, and now I lost her again.

Maybe forever. Either way, you have to find out about your past. Or like my Uncle Tommy, you’ll never be free.

Well, okay, if we come into Oh, please. I brought you some more ice chips. Oh, thank you, baby. Would you, uh, like some coffee I brought? Oh, Heavens no. It’ll keep me up all night. But, you know, I really should be going.

Well, thank you so much for coming, Marlena. Hopefully, I’ll see you soon. Yes, I’ll be thinking about all of you. And please, hug those babies for me. I will. Good. Marlena? I’ll see you pretty soon. Soon. Thank you again. We’re in this together.

So, sweetheart, are you feeling better? Ah, better.

I need you to do something for me. Anything, Mama. I need you to get my laptop. Now? What do you need it for? I want you to help me draft my last will, testament.

How could I have missed the signs? How? I trusted Goldman completely. She fooled everybody, boss. Why did she do this? Why, money? Could be Clyde has something on her, forcing her to do his work. Whatever it is, it’s gotta be big. It’s gotta be, and who’s to say that Clyde’s not the only one who has, who has people out there pulling strings.

I mean, there could be judges, there could be other cops, uh, what, prison personnel? We have to bring Goldman in. We’re gonna break her down and get her to tell us whether she has accomplices. Yeah. And when we do that, we’re gonna use her. We are gonna use her to bring Clyde to his knees. I am telling you. We are gonna end that monster once and for all.

Well, hello there, little lady. You son of a bitch. How dare you take my son after everything I have done for you. Everything you’ve done for me? What about what you haven’t done? And now let’s get this straight. The fact that your boy isn’t there with you right now is nobody’s fault but your own. Okay, you listen to me, if you hurt Trip at all, I will personally drive a semi truck through the gates of Statesville and I will choke the life out of you.

Do you hear me loud and clear, but it’s real simple. You do exactly what I say and your boy will be fine.

I should have had a will made up a long time ago. But I just assumed I would live forever. Saw no reason to rush it. But now, you know, I might, might get, wait, listen for God knows how long before I get a new heart. So I need to make sure my affairs Are in order

I understand mom and you know now that Eli and I have kids we’re gonna have our wills made up as well Yes, am I. Okay, that’s fine. It’s fine for y’all to be copycats. But how about you just let me be first, okay? Of course. Okay. So, sweetheart, I’m gonna dictate it to you and you take notes, okay? Okay. I’m ready.

Uh, here it goes. I, Paulina Price, declare this to be my last will and testament.

I am married to Abraham Carver. I have two children. Children, Lonnie Price, and Chanel Dupree. Well, as much fun as this has been, I gotta call it a night. Then, uh, pick it up another time. Yeah, I’d like that. I know Doug’s waiting up for me. Oh, while you were in the garage I called him, and I said, you were here, and you were taking care of me, and he was very glad to hear that.

Well, it’s my pleasure to be able to take care of you. You and your husband have been so wonderful to me since I arrived to town, inviting me over for Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve. You’re a, you’re a good guy, Everett. And I hope when you do find out the secret of your past, you tell me all about it. I’d love to, but, uh, I have a feeling you’ll find out before I can tell you.

Word spreads pretty fast in this town. Yes, it does, doesn’t it? I know when you do know the truth, it’s gonna give you peace of mind. Well, goodnight. Thank you, Julie. I told you

I’d put a new guard outside, but if I don’t know who I can trust I guess I could call in help from another agency. I’m sure Clyde doesn’t have people everywhere, but sure as hell feels like it right now. I can take care of myself. Can you just do me one favor? Yeah, name it. Bring me my gun. Now, what I’m about to tell you stays between you and me.

No cops, no stiff. Okay. Instead of you coming to Statesville to do me in, you’re gonna get your little fanny over here and break me out. Are you out of your mind? A prison break? How the hell am I supposed to pull that off? Well, it’s time for you to shapeshift from that doting mama to vitally mom princess.

You can call your family. You got the numbers. I know you do. No. No, I can’t do that. Oh, yes, you can, and you will. Cause if I’m not out of this prison in 24 hours, that bambino of yours is going to be pushing up daisies.
