Oh, my. I can’t believe that you fell into this. Yeah, that’s, uh, quite unbelievable. It’s gonna be perfect for June. I think so, too. Oh, and I have a suggestion, if you don’t mind. Um, I think you would do well to, to get a port a crib. Yeah. For the reception. I mean, I don’t know if he’s going to need a nap, but I can’t imagine they will have an actual crib at the DiMera mansion.

As opposed to the pub, for which dad has watched all the Brady grandchildren since forever. I don’t understand why there was a change in venue. Nicole, she wanted to host a party for Jude. And what did Sloane say about that? She wasn’t thrilled because I said yes without asking. Oh, Eric. I know, I know. But how was I supposed to say no to Nicole?

After everything she’s been through.

So, Eric’s gonna want to take a ton of pictures tomorrow. Uh, do you think we should set up outside? I mean, the daffodils are finally blooming and I did plant those lovely California poppies. Yes. Honestly, I don’t think anything is going to beat that creepy ass Stefano DiMera portrait as a backdrop. I mean, it’ll just look like a poster for a horror movie.

That is not true. Okay, speaking of garden, do you want to go outside? I think we could both use some fresh air. Um, nah, I’d rather not. I just want to go to my room. Thanks. Honey, wait. Honey, is everything okay? No, it’s not.

Alright, Dr. Nichols told me to read back what I wrote, so uh, here goes nothing. Dear Annoying Stupid Journal, My therapist said I can write whatever I want in here, as long as it’s honest. But, I gotta say, this feels really weird. Yeah. Uh, I don’t think I’ve written by hand since the third grade. It was Tyler’s class.

God, she hated me. Anyway, I don’t need therapy to get me back on track. Get me, yeah, whatever that means. I just need to get out of here. Hi. Seriously, only you would be mainlining caffeine at this hour. Sure. That’s, uh Good idea. Well, no tremors. Haven’t keeled over yet, so that’s positive. Thanks for meeting me.

Well, I’ve been wanting to talk to you too. Oh, really? I’ve been trying to reach you with a spectator, but Chad said you’ve barely been around. Yeah, I’ve had a lot on my plate. Great. Great. Well, I’ve wanted to deal with you directly since You were the one who retained my firm. Yeah, okay. It’d be best if you hired a new PR firm for The Spectator.

I don’t think it’s a good idea for us to work together anymore.

So, uh, you wanna let me in? Are you afraid I’m gonna shoot you?

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

Alright, what can I do for you, Xander? Not a thing. I, uh, came to thank you, actually, for helping me make bail. I owe you, mate. You don’t owe me anything. I couldn’t positively ID my shooter, so the judge made the right call. He did. That’s the other reason I’m here to see you. I, I wanted to say that, yes, I have done some terrible things in my past, but I am a changed man because I’m a father now.

Nothing is more important to me than being a good person. For my daughter and for the women I love, I, I want them both to be proud of me. So I want you to know for certain, straight from the horse’s mouth. I did not shoot you, detective. I am innocent.

Steph, don’t do this. Don’t punish yourself because you’re angry with me, which you have every right to be. Look, I hired you to do PR and social media for the paper because you’re the best that there is. But if you don’t want to deal directly with me, um, I’m sure Chad would be more than happy to be your point.

I don’t want to deal directly with you in a professional setting, Everett. Bobby, I don’t even know what I should call you. I can think of a lot more names, and they’re worse than the ones you just mentioned. Does this mean you’re finally admitting that you were married when you and I were together in Seattle?

That you cheated on Jada with me?

If I understand what happened,

there’s still a lot more questions than there are answers. But yes, I have come to realize that there’s a lot more gaps in my memory than I, than I initially thought. What kind of gaps? Um, well, for instance,

I can’t remember my father. Hello.

You know that Sloan has issues with Nicole, and for good reason. So what, you want me to uninvite Nicole to the christening? You can’t, you can’t uninvite her to the christening since you already have her planning the entire reception at DiMera Mansion. I know.

You know what, it’s just that Nicole and Holly are like family to me. Oh. Well, how does Sloan feel about this? Well, she’s not exactly happy with me. But you know what, Nicole, she stopped by the house this morning and believe it or not, Sloan and Nicole, they kind of, they kind of bonded. Really? Yeah. Well, you know, Judy was a bit fussy this morning, so Nicole, she kind of calmed him down.

Yeah. So I actually seem to be grateful. Well, that’s a very positive step. Yeah. I still worry a little bit.

Worry about what?

Your relationship with Nicole is very complex. And I think you’ve got to be sensitive for other people. I am trying my best, Mom. Listen, I think you need to stop worrying too, okay? Okay, I won’t worry. I just, I just want you and Sloane to be happy. And what is that supposed to mean?

I want you to be happily married. What did you think it meant?

What’s the matter, honey? Are you Mom, relax. I’m not feeling sick. I’m just upset. About Tate. Yes, about Tate. When I told you the drugs weren’t his, I thought he’d be released from that halfway house. But instead, you didn’t believe me. Honey, it’s not that we didn’t believe you. You admitted yourself that you don’t remember everything that happened.

Well, I remember everything before that night perfectly. And I never saw Tate using drugs. Ever! Well, there’s a first time for everything. And Tate was acting awfully suspicious that night. Okay, so? It’s not like you can prove he roofied me. And why the hell did EJ have to go slap a restraining order on him?

EJ and I agree that you and Tate need to take a break from each other’s company. God. You act like Tate’s this horrible influence on me, and we literally went on one real date. And look how that turned out. Not because of Tate.

Mom, listen. What happened on New Year’s Eve, it wasn’t his fault.

It was mine.

I’m sorry. I, um, I just thought you were trying to tell me something that Cole might have Set in therapy. Well, that would be quite an ethical breach, wouldn’t it? Yeah, it would. I’m sorry that Jim’s asleep. Oh, it’s okay. I will see plenty of him tomorrow. Yeah. By the way, um, I’m looking forward to tomorrow, and Brady is, as well.

He’s taking his duties as godparent very seriously. I’m so glad you asked. With all that’s been going on with him lately. Yeah, he needed this. Yeah, I know. And of course we’re all hoping that Tate is released. As soon as Holly wakes up and, um, remembers what actually happened on New Year’s Eve. But it seems that she doesn’t remember where she got the drugs.

Brady thinks, uh, She’s not telling the truth. Of course, he, he would seriously want to believe his own son. And Nicole wants to believe Holly’s telling the truth. As much as I hate to say it, because I love, love Holly. But, say what? Brady’s not the only one who thinks Holly’s not telling the truth. Holly,

honey, look at me. She’s not. You have got to stop blaming yourself for that night. Even if Tate didn’t give you those drugs, they weren’t yours. Mom. Honey, let me just finish, okay? Marlena made me realize that self blame is a coping mechanism. And it’s just sometimes the way we deal with trauma, but You know, it’s not, it’s not really good for anyone.

And that, that night, Holly, that terrible night that you OD’d, I thought there is no way those are Holly’s drugs. Not a chance. But then, self doubt started creeping in and, and I started to question myself. And I was wondering, man, am I oblivious to what’s going on under my own roof with my own daughter? So I started to blame myself for failing you as a mother.

For not being more attentive, and, and missing out on your birthday, and, and making you worry about me when I should be worrying about you. Mom, you were going through so much when you lost that baby. Please don’t be so hard on yourself, okay? Honey, I just, I want you to understand what I’m saying. I realized that you do not do drugs, and you were the victim on New Year’s Eve.

Someone maliciously put drugs in your drink without you knowing about it and it almost ended your life. And I blamed myself for no reason. Just like you are now. My sweetheart. What could you possibly be sorry for? Why would I want to be with someone who obviously doesn’t care about me? When? Holly only dated me to get over her big crush on Johnny DiMera, her step brother, and now she won’t admit those were her drugs that made her OD.

Hers, and hers alone, which makes her selfish and mean. Not my friend. God, I need to get over her. Wait, you don’t remember your father? You never realized it before now? Yeah, I don’t know. I, uh, guess I thought it was sort of an out of sight, out of mind sort of thing. But when I was in session with Marlena, you know, she, she asked me about my mom.

And even though she, she died when I was younger, I could still see her face, you know? I could, I could smell her, her perfume. But when she asked me about my dad, uh, I don’t know. Total blank. It’s really strange. Steph, did I ever tell you anything about him? No, you didn’t. I mean, I remember asking you about him once.

You just kind of zoned out on me. So I, I figured it was a sensitive subject. And I never asked again.

Well, thank you for your time, detective. I’ll be on my way. That’s it? Yeah, that’s it. I came by to say my piece, which I’ve done. You, uh, you drink scotch? Um, yeah. Yeah? Single malt? Okay. Of course. Okay, got some right here.

Ask how you can so calmly offer to share a drink with someone who everyone else believes tried to kill you. Because I have a gun.

And I believe you didn’t try to kill me.

Detective Michaels, it uh, obviously means a great deal to me that you believe in my innocence, but why do you? Well, from one ex mercenary to another, I know what it’s like to be accused of something you didn’t do. And of course, there have been plenty of times I was guilty. Likewise. But I have been working really hard on myself, turned over a new leaf, and I get the impression that you’re trying to do the same thing.

I have been, yeah. And look, like I say, I’ve done many regrettable things in my past. But I’d never be stupid enough to try and shoot a cop. Not anymore, especially now that Sarah and I are back together and we have our little girl, who’s the light of my life. I mean, I’m so happy. Why would I risk it all to put a bullet in you?

I mean, no offense, but I don’t even know you. Right, right, which is the assumption why you were a gun for hire. Yeah, but I wasn’t. I just wished there was some way to track down who sent me that text and deposited the money into my account. Well, we know that forensics came up empty. Okay. So, assuming you were set up.

Do you have any idea who might have been behind it? Wait, you think Holly may be lying? I think it’s possible. Um, I told Brady that I would talk to her and I did. She was evasive. Oh. Well, I’m glad you spoke to her and I’m sure that Brady will be very grateful that you did. And, I just hope the truth comes out.

Soon. Yeah. So how are you doing, Mom? Me? Yeah. Brady said that John’s been a little, I don’t know, out of sorts lately. Is there anything I can do? No. No, darling. Well, if you ever want to talk about it. You’ll be my first call. Well, I should get going. Let me walk you out.

Thanks for coming by. Love this boy. Thanks. Honey, you have nothing to feel guilty about. Nothing at all. So can you just be kind to yourself? Yeah, I’ll try. Listen, I have to go pick up a few more things for the christening tomorrow. Do you want to come with me? Mom, I’m kind of tired now. Well, call me if you need anything.

I love you. I love you too, Mom. See you.

Serenity Salem halfway house. Come on, come on, come on. And then she comes down to the police station to tell the truth. At least that’s what I thought she was going to do. But she didn’t. And now I’m not even allowed to see her.

Maybe that’s a good thing. Maybe I don’t need her in my life anymore.

So did Marlena have any idea why your memory was so badly affected? I mean, yeah, she said it very likely has to do with the brain injury from the accident. Hmm. And she suggested we try hypnotherapy. Sounds like it’s worth a try. Yeah, I said I would give it a try. The truth is

What? I don’t know. I don’t know. Maybe I’m just scared of what might come up. You know, especially since I was told I was, uh Monster. That I did Awful, unforgivable things. But Everett, if If you’re upset that you did those things Or maybe I didn’t It’s pretty clear that you did. And maybe with hypnotherapy You’ll learn that there was some Mitigating factor And it could be that you’re Just a different person now.

Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, maybe. In which case, I suppose it would be too much to ask. Too much to hope for that, that you and I, uh, Never mind. I know it would be too much to hope for.

Everett, I’m sorry that you’re dealing with this mental health issue. I really am.

And I know that you don’t have a lot of people to lean on here, so I’m not going to disappear on you. I appreciate that. And I did have real feelings for you. Which, as you know, I was starting to To have, again, but It’s okay. I I think I I know where you’re going with this.

I’m not saying anything’s impossible.

If it’s meant to be. When it’s all said and done. We will figure it out.

Okay. I’ll take it.

Don’t give up on my stuff.

Hmm. Can’t say I’m a sister because she’s only eight. Do I say I’m a long loss? And who died tragically in a skiing accident. No, I can’t call him dead, uh,

Yes, that’s it. That should work.

Good evening, Serenity House, Salem. Hello, may I please speak with Tate Black? This is his mother, Teresa Donovan.

Phone call, Tate Black, from your mother. Tell her I’m meditating, or whatever. I’ll call her tomorrow. She says it’s important. Okay, okay, I’m coming.

Dr. Evans, hi. Herbert, hi. How are you? I’m, uh, I’m, I’m okay. I’m, I’m headed home. Yes, I am too. So, uh, have you had any more memories? I haven’t, no, unfortunately. Oh, well. We’ll keep working on that. Yeah. Okay. Good night. Yeah. Dr. Evans, wait. Jada,

hi! Wait, you’re not even going to say hi? I didn’t see you. I have a lot on my mind. Me too. Listen, I got the distinct impression at the hospital earlier that you were We’re upset with me. I’m upset at the entire Bobby situation. Why wouldn’t I be? Right. Of course. I am too. Listen, Jada. We’re friends. And we were both victims of his lies.

So can we please just Get together and talk about it. See, the thing is, I don’t see you as a victim. I’m the one who was cheated on. Well, yes, but And maybe it seems a little irrational. I mean, maybe it is rational. But I Can’t help but keep bumping up against the fact that You are the other woman You helped break up my marriage

I’m sorry, you feel that way Jada that you think of me as the other woman

But don’t you think the person you should be mad at here is Everett? Oh, I’m plenty mad at him, too Jada, I know that you were hurt. And I am so sorry about that. But I didn’t know that Everett was married. And if I had, I never would have gotten involved with him. You sure about that? What? That you didn’t know.

Yes, I’m sure I didn’t. Or maybe a small part of you just didn’t want to know.

Why would you say that? Stephanie, did you ever hang out with his friends? Meet his parents? Look them up on the internet? Yeah, none of the above. Right. So, Stephanie, this man was keeping his life a secret from you, obviously. And you, being a smart woman, had to have suspected that there was a reason for that.

And yet, you didn’t. You didn’t do any digging. You didn’t even pick up a shovel. Because maybe, you don’t know, maybe, maybe you just didn’t want to mess up your life. You know, you were just so blissfully happy and in love that you didn’t want to find out anything that would screw that up and mess up your perfect little life.


unfortunately. Salem is home to a number of people who would love nothing more than to do me in. EJ DiMera probably being at the top of that list. So, when I got that text, ordering me to carry out the hit, I ran over to the DiMera mansion to confront EJ about it, but Stefan was the only one home, it turned out.

I see. And, you no longer think that EJ set you up? Well, I just, I don’t know why he’d want to do you in. I mean. Sure, maybe he was trying to protect the family name. You did do that drug bust on a DiMera owned business, but it just doesn’t seem like reason enough to have you murdered. You’re the cop. What do you think?

Nothing concrete, so far. Right. Well, as far as I know, there was only one eyewitness to the shooting. And that was you. So are you sure you don’t remember anything at all?

Well, I know I agreed to try hypnotherapy. But, I have to admit the more I The more I think about it, I don’t know, the more afraid I am of what might come up. Huh. I understand. And the truth is that Not knowing could be even more destabilizing. And, and knowing might help you get rid of some of your fears.

So maybe, um, maybe we just want to move forward. I see what you’re saying, but, um, honestly, I, uh, I’m not sure.

Hey, Mom, what is it? What’s so important? It’s me. Hey, hey, remember, you’re on the phone to your mother. Right, right, yeah, of course. Uh, hi, mom. Uh, I’m doing great. How are you? Are you okay? I’m okay. But Tate, I’m so sorry about everything that’s happened. And she’s being such a jerk. I really wanted to see you when I came to the police station.

So badly, but they wouldn’t let me. I know. And now this restraining order. I just I can’t stand that this is happening to you because of me. Well, there’s something you can do about it. I know. And why don’t you?

I was stopping by the chapel to see Father Bernard. About the reading for the Baptist. Right. Well, I’m sure you’re surprised to see me here. Yeah. I’ve never really been much of a church goer, even when I worked here. But, ever since losing the baby, and everything that Holly’s been going through, I’ve just been talking to God a lot lately.

Unfortunately, I haven’t heard from Him yet. Well, just keep listening. Okay. Yeah. You know, actually, I’ve, I’ve been doing the same thing lately.

You know, running into you, here, it just kind of feels like, Like what? Feels like fate.

Nicole, I have a confession.

Sorry, I don’t remember anything. But whoever it was, They shot you in the chest, so you must have been face to face with him, or her, or them. Yeah, look, even if I, uh, do recover some of those memories, I’m not gonna tell the prime suspect anything about the investigation. I’m sure you can understand that.

Yeah, so, I will tell you this. Uh, while the charges against you remain active, and assuming that you’re innocent, I’m I will do everything in my power to clear your name. You just gotta be patient. That’s not my strong suit. Yeah, well, the wheels of justice turn slowly, but they do turn. And I believe we’re gonna find that shooter.

I don’t know about that, mate. And you know what they say? No justice, no peace.

You think I have a perfect life? Really? Thanks. Well, first of all, you know damn well that I have my struggles just like you do. And my God, Jade, where is this coming from? Oh, am I not supposed to ask you questions? And I’m not a detective like you are. No, you’re not. In fact, have you ever had a job where you even had to get your hands dirty?

What the hell does that have to do with anything? Oh, nothing really. I mean, I guess it’s irrelevant. But what is relevant, huh? If I found out that a guy cheated on my dear old friend with me, I wouldn’t be sticking by his side. That’s not what I’m doing. That seems like that’s exactly what you’re doing.

Being all so sympathetic to the poor guy. Who cares if he’s a lying sociopath? Your heart is just bleeding for him, isn’t it? Everett is going through a lot right now. He is very confused. And he doesn’t have any friends or family here. Poor bastard. Have a good day. Everett, you know, whatever we discover in therapy under hypnosis, and, and it may be nothing at all, but whatever it is, I will be with you every step of the way.

Thank you. Of course. I will see you at our session. You will. Promise. Look, when

I told my mom and EJ the drugs weren’t yours, I thought that would be enough. But it wasn’t, Polly. Listen, Tate, would you just let me explain, please? I’m sorry. When my mom lost the baby, she was in a really dark place. I mean, she was out of her freaking mind with grief. And then when I OD’d, she was totally about to blame herself if it turned out those drugs were mine.

For, for not being there for me. For being not a good enough mom. Tate, it would kill her if she thought those drugs were mine. I honestly don’t think she could take it. And she, she sort of lost her mind when that little boy died. If I told her the truth about what happened on New Year’s Eve, she would just totally fall apart.

Look, I, um, I gotta know that you weren’t being selfish, that you were just trying to protect your mom. I am, but Tate, I feel so bad about what you’ve gone through, what you’re still going through. It’s okay, I’m not gonna be in this place for much longer, at least I hope not. But your mom going off the rails, that could, that could destroy your whole family.

So you shouldn’t tell her, ever. What? Tate. It’s okay, really, don’t worry about me. But I am worried about you. Look, this, uh, this halfway house, it’s not so bad. I mean, you know, it’s not a five star hotel or anything, but the food’s not horrible. Tate, are you Just take care of your mom. Okay? EJ’s home. I have to go.

You have a confession.

Wouldn’t you rather talk to a priest? No. This is something that I want to tell you. Only you. Okay, I’m, I’m listening. Oh. When you, when you came by this morning, I was, I was getting out of the shower and

Well, I kind of eavesdropped on you and slumped for a bit. Okay. Yeah, well, it’s just because I was worried that you two weren’t going to be able to get along. Once I saw you help her calm Jude down, Wow. It just did my heart good. I’m glad.

You know, after everything that we’ve been through, I’m just, I’m really grateful that we can still be friends.

So am I.

Wow, that really wasn’t much of a confession. No. I guess not.

I guess I just, I just wanted to share with you how much our friendship means to me.

As yours does to me. Well, I’m gonna let you finish your prayer. And, uh, I’ll see you here tomorrow for the baptism. Yes. Yes. I’ll, um, I’ll see you tomorrow. Okay. Yeah. Take care.
