Oh, you clean up nice. Oh, sorry. A lot on my mind. You look lovely as per usual. And you seem awfully distracted right now. Um, I assume it’s about Stefan turning himself in? It is. It’s a lot to process. But you know what? Not today. I’m going to compartmentalize, as they say. And we should get going, actually.

I’ll get Holly. Oh, hey! Why aren’t you dressed? We’re gonna hit the road in like five minutes. I’m not going. Well, well! If it isn’t the godmother herself. And how are you this glorious morning? Doing well, Leo. And you? I’m fine. Exceptional to a fault, as always. Exceptionally overdressed for working at the paper, no?

Uh, Lady Whistleblower is always fashion forward, no matter the venue. Today, however, Lady W is playing hooky. Oh, well, if you excuse me. So, where is it? Where’s what? The christening gift for your godchild. Bad form for the godmother to forget something so important. But maybe, just maybe, yours truly may have the fix.

Did you pack more bottles? Uh, yeah, yeah, yeah. I also packed some extra onesies, because who knows, I don’t think it’s gonna be able to stay in that christening gown. Not long, I’m guessing. Yeah? Oh, I cannot believe you used to wear this. Well, you know, it’s family tradition, and uh, as you know, you just keep it going.

Yeah. I just can’t stop smiling. Uh, yeah. I can see that. I knew this was going to be the happiest day of our lives. And now that it’s here, it’s just kind of like, Wow. Hey, what are you thinking? Oh, God, it’s just, Having the party at the DiMera’s with Nicole hosting. I, I, I’m trying to stay positive, Eric, I really am.

But I, I don’t know how to feel about it. I’m still so, so uncomfortable. Sloane, we talked about this. I know, I know, I know we have. And I know, especially on a day like today, I should be more forgiving. But every time I look at Nicole, all I think about Is, is, you know, when she thought June was her baby and, and, and kidnapped him.

I mean, do you know how hard it is for me to not think about that?

You know, Godfather, it’s got a nice ring to it, huh? Have you given it a spin? The Godfather. A man who doesn’t spend time with his family can never be a real man. That’s not bad. Thank you. Yeah. Maybe I should bring some cannolis. That’s funny. I know. Are you gonna eat that breakfast? Cause I will. Hey, hey, hey.

I got a fork here. I’m not afraid to use a fork, okay? I know. Alright. Actually, you know what? I have to call Tate. Um, Okay.

Hi, can I speak to Tate Black, please? Yes, this is his mother, Teresa Donovan.

Hi baby, how are you? Good. Um, listen, so the plan is I am gonna come and visit you after Jude’s christening and then your dad, he’s, he’s gonna come see you after the party.

Yes, of course we’re gonna see Holly at the chapel. Oh, I hate seeing Tate like that. I mean, he seems so upbeat, and then when Holly’s name got brought up, he I know, and he’s upset about the restraining order. I mean, he’s gotta stay a hundred feet away from her, which I think is extreme, but it’s no surprise EJ’s driving this train now.

I don’t know. You know, if they were to stay a million miles apart from each other, I really wouldn’t mind. God, Brady, why can’t that girl just come clean and tell everybody that Tate did not give her the drugs? Tracy, you know why? Because she’s, she says she doesn’t remember what happened that night on New Year’s Eve.

Well, let’s just hope that Sloane Peterson comes up with something to force EJ to drop the charges. God, I don’t, I don’t think that’s going to happen. I think our boy is going to be in that halfway house until, you know, Till the trial. But you know what? You shouldn’t be worrying about her. You should be focusing on your schoolwork instead of thinking about the girl who got you into this mess.


do you need some help with that? Please. Hey. At that time when we were on vacation. Yes, we did. We got that tie from an old man on the Via Della Spiga, who couldn’t stop telling me how beautiful you are. I couldn’t stop agreeing with him. Oh, I remember that. You know, we should plan a vacation. In fact, something has occurred to me.

I’ll give you a hint. Aloha. Hmm? I see what you’re doing, Don. But running away from what you’ve done isn’t going to change anything. Okay, fine. Then what is? Because you are agonizing over something that you What is something? That something was the murder of an innocent young woman. I took her life. And that is something I gotta live with for the rest of mine.

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

John, John, by your own admission, you have no memory of that time.

And, and there’s no clear cut evidence that you had anything to do with that girl’s death. Steve was there. At the scene of the crime. And he does remember seeing anyone else there but me. Stefano and Victor were also involved. So who knows what the truth is? And I’m not even, I’m not even sure that I trust Steve’s memory.

John, you were You’re, you’re punishing yourself. You’re beating yourself up. You’re questioning who you are. That isn’t okay. Look, you, you doing this is, is, is so painful and it’s even hurting me. I’m sorry, baby, because the last thing I want to do is ever hurt you. I know that. But it does hurt me because I know you.

I love you. I know who you are. You are a good and decent man. Look at me. You need to forgive yourself. I don’t know if I can do that.

Well. How’d it go? Tate is obviously still hung up on Holly in spite of it all. I think he heard me, or at least he pretended to hear me. Oh, don’t you two look spiffy. Well, as do you both. Are you ready for the big event? Ah, the christening, definitely. The reception at the Damaris. Not so much. Okay, but we have decided that we are going to keep an open mind.

We’re gonna try. We’re all gonna try. Who knows, maybe, maybe this is the dawn of a new era of peace and harmony. All thanks to that beautiful grandson of yours. Bless his heart. And what do they say? Hope for the best, prepare for the worst.

Tell me you are not being serious. Oh, when it comes to giving gifts, I am never not serious. Probably in defiance of the bad gift givers in my life, like my very stingy mother, who on my last birthday gave me a partially used soap on a rope. The birthday before that, a mood ring toilet seat. I mean about the christening.

You are not actually going. Why wouldn’t I? I’m an invited guest. And to state the ombudist, there would be no event to go to had you and I not made sure that that precious little boy, soon to be christened, didn’t end up in the loving arms of Eric and Sloan, and not in the arms of his real mother, Nicole Walker Demura, who’s hosting the party, and ain’t that ironic?

All caps. Fine. I get it. You and I are connected in that way, but that doesn’t mean that we can Partners in baby stealing. Yeah. Not very proud of that. In fact, if I had to do it over again Well, you don’t have it to do over again. So let’s not talk about it right now, okay? Or ever, for that matter. Today is about the future.

A future that requires you keeping your mouth shut. That is, if you want to continue living the lifestyle you’ve grown so accustomed to. The outside of prison lifestyle. Got it?

Look at you, all dressed up in daddy’s fancy christening gown.

Oh, I’m glad it fits him. Perfectly. You all packed up? Yeah, I, I think I checked the bag like six hundred times. You ready to go? I am. Eric, I am so sorry about being such a downer about Nicole hosting the christening party. It’s okay. You were just being honest. I was, but I’m gonna take the high road, okay? I mean, it’s very kind of Nicole and EJ to host the reception, and I’m sure it’ll be a beautiful celebration for our amazing baby boy.

I’m sure it will be.

Holly, honey, of course you’re going to the christening. We’re all going to the christening as a family. Holly, what’s really going on? Nothing. Just, I don’t have the energy and the thought of being around so many people just makes my head want to explode, so. This is about self care, okay? Wait, are you, are you warm?

No, I don’t have a fever. Should I call Sarah just in case? Mom, stop, that’s enough, okay? Look, I know you’re worried about me, but I’m fine, seriously. So, you guys go to the christening without me. I don’t want to hold you up just because I couldn’t pull it together. Well, if you’re not going, I’m not going.

Bloody hell, if you’re not going, neither am I. Oh, we could all stay home.

Hmm. Tacky, tacky, Melinda, bringing up my little arrangement with Sloan, which for the record is no more odious than your arrangement with her. Well, odious arrangements aside, I comfort myself in knowing that Jude is with amazing parents. They’re gonna raise him to be the best version of himself. I’m not so sure about that.

Yes, Eric has fatherhood down to his science, but mommy Sloane, there is not a maternal bone in that woman’s body. I disagree. I think that Sloan is taking to motherhood quite nicely. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I would like to check in on my godchild. Yeah, go for it. Come on.

Guess I’ll go check in on the big man.

Look, I just wanted to tell you that I think Eric made a very wise choice when he asked you to be, to be Jude’s godfather. Alright? I know you’ll take the role to heart, and I know you’ll give that little guy all the support he needs. I was honored to be asked. Well, I was glad you accepted. Eric did mention that you were, uh, reluctant.

Thank you. At first, I was, I haven’t been very confident in my parenting skills these days. Yeah, he mentioned that too. So Brady, listen to me. All right, as hard as it is and believe me, I’ve been there. All right. You can’t blame yourself for things that are not within your control. And all we can do is love our kids unconditionally and be there for them.

Yeah. Lots

of catch up on, don’t we? Yeah. Yeah, we do. Do you know what it was like for me to watch the Super Bowl alone this year? Picked you, dad, in a room full of chicken wings and pizza and a giant 4K television and no one to It was awful. Yeah, well, I had no one’s ass to kick in fantasy basketball this year, so Okay, stop it.

And um, Mom, thank you for opening up to me. Really, for having the courage to tell me the truth about you and dad. I’m so glad I did. Just seeing you both laughing together, it just, you have no idea how happy it makes me. That’s all we can do? Yeah. And speaking of being here, I spoke to Kim the other day.

She is very grateful for what you’ve done for Teresa. Well, I was just glad that I was able to be there. Especially since I’ve been there, Roman, so Theresa and I aren’t together anymore, but she’s always going to be family. Isn’t that right, dear? That’s why you’re also a great dad, too. Alright. And that’s why you’re going to be a world class godfather.

Serious. I’m very proud. The man you’ve become, Brady. I am very, very proud of that. This is crazy.

You guys can’t miss the christening. Well, I’m not going to leave you home alone. Nor am I. And it’s not like anyone’s going to miss us. Mom, that’s ridiculous. Eric would be so crushed if you two weren’t there. The same would be said about you. Honey, Is this because Teresa and Brady are going to be there and it’ll be uncomfortable because of the situation with Tate?

It’s all of it. Okay? It’s a whole vibe. Alright, well, I promise you, Teresa and Brady will be on their best behavior. And like EJ said, you will be missed. If you’re not there, Eric loves you. And he would be sad if EJ and I weren’t there. So we are not letting you stay home alone. Like I said. Okay, fine. I get that today is important.

And you and EJ 100 percent need to be there celebrating, too. Which means I have to go. Since you won’t leave me home alone. So let me get ready. I changed my mind. Yay, Holly, I’m so relieved. And you know what, I bet it’s gonna be a beautiful christening. And it might even cheer you up, brighten your day.

Yeah. Seriously doubt that. Bye. Uh, but you guys should go without me. I don’t want to make you late. I’ll meet you there. Okay, well make sure you’re not too late, okay? Okay, I’ll try.

Teenagers, huh? Oh, they sure earn their reputation. Yeah, yeah, we understand. Yeah, we will. Love

you too. Bye.

And Kayla. She won’t be able to make it. Unfortunately, the hospital is understaffed. Oh, no, that’s too bad.

Godmother has arrived. Melinda, please come in. Hope I’m not too early. No. Uh, before the day gets too crazy, I just wanted to make sure I gave this to you. Just a little something for Jude’s savings account. Melinda, you didn’t have to do that. Well, I know I didn’t have to. I wanted to. I know. And there he is.

Hello there, beautiful. What a sweet little angel you are. Hey, Melinda. Hmm? Um, there’s something I need to talk to you about. Oh. Yeah. It’s godmother stuff. Oh, okay. Um, at the start of service, godmother, you will have to carry Jew to the front of the chapel. Will that be okay with you? I would absolutely be honored.

Hello. Are you here for a confession? How much time do you have? No, nothing to confess. Though this seems like a wonderful place to do it if I was in the market. Well, you’re always welcome. That’s good to know. I’m actually here for a christening for Jude Brady. Ah, yes. Yes. I’ve known that little tyke, your blessing, his whole life.

Isn’t that wonderful? And everyone who’s here will in some way bear responsibility to the child throughout his life. Really? Everyone here? It takes a village, as they say, to not only encourage spiritual growth in our children, but to be examples of good, kind, honest people. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to finish setting up.

Well, I’m good and kind. Sort of. Sometimes. A little. Honest, not so much.

For one day, can you just put aside your guilt and try to focus on the joy of this new life that we’re celebrating? All right? Can you just do it for me?

I will do that for you.

Thank you.

Why are you trying to punish yourself for something you might not even have done? Because I’ve always been afraid that I was capable of a heinous act like this. In fact, I think a part of me always knew I had. I can’t do it anymore, Doc. I can’t, I can’t, I can’t wake up in the morning, I can’t eat my oatmeal and kiss my wife goodbye and go off to the office knowing who I am and what I’ve done.

John, I don’t think you’re thinking rationally right now. No. Okay. Put yourself in my shoes. Come on, Doc. How do you move forward without dealing with the past and taking responsibility for it? I know how you’re feeling. I did. Unconscionable things at a time when I wasn’t It wasn’t you! And this wasn’t you!

It’s not the same! Well, should we head to the chapel? I think it’s about that time. Uh, give me a second. Adlai, what’s up? What? Are you okay? Are you sure? Did you get checked out? Okay, now don’t worry about that. We got that covered. Okay, don’t worry. Go home. Take care of yourself. Call me if you need anything All right Take care One of my employees he was taking the food over to the mirrors and There was car wreck fortunately, nobody got hurt but Car is, uh, undrivable.

That’s not a problem. I can take the food. I can have the dimericum. Not your problem, Katie. That’s nonsense. You’re the godfather. You’re the grandfather. You can’t be late. I’ve got this. Go. Both of you. Now. I’ve got it. Hi. It’s pretty straightforward. The priest is gonna ask you a few questions. Simple stuff.

And you know what? You’re gonna crush it. Sounds great. Um, are we ready to roll? Uh, I gotta call Sammy back. She left me a message from earlier. Great. Tell her hi from me. Tell her I wish she could be here with us. I will. Okay.

Oh my god, how am I gonna get through this? You will get through it because you have to. And because you have everything you’ve ever wanted, remember? And by the way, what’s with Leo? Was he officially invited? Couldn’t be avoided. Same thing with allowing Nicole to host the after party. But Sloane, this is your baby and your event.

Look, I understand that, that Nicole has no idea when it comes to Jude, but her and Leo in the same space for any length of time is just so risky. I know. I know. It’s a good thing I ran into him today. Leo? Yeah, I reminded him that he should keep his mouth shut if he knows what’s good for him. Well, damn well better.

Something about this place always seems to calm me down. Yeah, me too.

Is that?

That’s Leo Stark. I hope he’s not here to write some gossip. Most likely. Hello. Stunning Dr. Evans. Handsome John Black. How are you both doing today? Well, we’re just fine. And yourself? Oh, I’m feeling reflective. Spiritual. Peaceful. And also a bit God fearing, which is interfering with the other feelings. I could understand how that would happen.

But I must say, I am blown away by Eric and Sloane and their generosity inviting me to this blessed event. I’ve never been much of a churchgoer, except for when I was young and my mother forced me to go by threatening to remove my kneecaps with an ice cream scoop. Leo. But, I am certain that today is going to be enlightening, uplifting for all of us.

That Leo Stark is quite a character, isn’t he? One way to think of him. Yeah. You’re concerned about having a reporter here, though. You know, he babysat for Jude at one point. And Sloane and Eric both said he was just great. Oh! Hey! Oh, hey! And Godfather. Theresa. Hey, hey. Hi there. There he is. Are you ready for this?

Yeah, big day. And where’s Kate? Well, we had a delivery snafu at the pub, and uh, Kate kindly offered to take care of that. In fact, I gotta give her a call check in with her, so if you’ll excuse me. Right, yes, yes. Doc and I, we have made plans to go see Tate. Oh, you will appreciate that. How are the two of you holding up?

How are we holding up? We’re doing okay. We’re hitting a lot of meetings and we’re putting sobriety first. Well, we’re really just trying to stay present for Tate. Oh, that’s good to hear. Actually, speaking of visiting Tate, I’m going to go see him right after the christening. Oh, what about the demerit house gathering?

Uh, I send my regrets. I think it’s best to just steer clear of E Gen.

Don’t think that’s gonna be too easy to do. You’re looking

Lovely, Nicole. Thank you, Roman. Um, where are Eric and Sloan? I don’t know. I haven’t seen them. I’m sure they’ll be here any minute.

No interest in going to that house afterwards for the big party. Honestly, just thinking about it makes the hairs on the back of my neck just stand up. You know what? You’re a better person than I am, Brady. I’m just doing it for Eric and Jude. I’m gonna suck it up and do what’s right.


I just want to say thank you to everyone for being here on this special day. Jude, he’s really lucky to have everyone in his life. We’re all lucky. Here, here. That was very eloquent, Eric. Mercifully brief, light on the schmaltz, always preferable in my book. Thank you, Leo. And I promise that whatever happens here today will be off the record.

That precious little angel, he looks exquisite in his christening outfit. That was the same one that Eric wore when he was christened. I bet he wore it well. Um, final diaper check before the big event. How

are you doing? Well, initially I was doing okay, but I don’t know, being here in the house of the Lord and seeing a little baby, I’m having a hard time. I will be with you every step of the way. Catch you. I’m gonna go see the phone. Your father, Annie Sloan, she’s getting Jude ready for his christening. And I’m pretty sure no one else is here.

We can just wait a minute. There she is. Hi. Hi. Oh, I’m so happy you could make it. Wouldn’t have missed it. If everyone can start to take their places. Hey. Hi, Holly. How’s Tate? Oh, he’s doing really well. You know, minus the ankle monitor and the restraining order. Yeah, thanks for that, by the way. Much appreciated.

What? I’m not allowed to talk to her?

Welcome friends and family. What a glorious day to be together to celebrate this beautiful life before us. A joyous moment and a testament to the blessed gift from God to you both.

Eric and Sloan, is it your will that Jude should be baptized in the faith of the church which we have all professed with you? It is. I baptize you in the name of the father and of the son and of the Holy Spirit. God, the father, our Lord Jesus Christ has freed you from sin, given you a new birth by water and the Holy Spirit, and he welcomes you into his holy people.

He now anoints you with the chrism of salvation as Christ was anointed priest prophet and King. So may you live always as a member of his body sharing of a lasting life. Amen. Amen. Ah! It’s a good thing Detective Hunter’s cars are rolling forward. Oh, God. Oh, God. Just breathe. Just breathe. That’s what they say in the movies, right?

Deep breath in. Deep breath out. Oh, if you say deep one more time, I’m going to pull your vocal cords out. Careful. I think she means it. Ah! Ah! Where’s the baby’s father? EJ needs to be here. He’s going to be a no show, unfortunately. Oh god, it’s close. Yeah, yeah, yeah. It’s very close. Not that much is obvious.

And panic attack and goose bump inducing. Oh, someone needs to catch this baby. Please. Hey, I am holding her hand and hyperventilating. You’re not doing anything. Me? You’re the one who insisted on being here in the first place. Guys! Okay, okay, okay. Oh my god, oh my god. An actual human being is about to emerge from there.

I need I’m not gonna I’m not going to faint. I’m going to be calm. I’m going to be cool. No! Please, I need to push! I’m going to pretend that I am Dr. Leo Stark, who has delivered millions of babies so brilliantly that when they pop out, they don’t even cry. They just smile and wave. Now, come on! Pepper him right in here!

The baby is coming! Okay, Nicole, look at me, look at me, look at me. You got this. We have got this. I need you to take one last deep breath. Okay. And then push a little tissue. It’s a

boy. He’s so adorable. That teeny little nose. All those little fingers. He’s my precious baby. It’s a little miracle. Jude, you have become

a new creation and have clothed yourself in Christ. See this white garment as the outward sign of your Christian dignity unstained into everlasting life of heaven. Amen. Sorry. So sorry, and sorry to you as well. Oh Lord. Oh Lord. I have something to say. Something very important. Something that can’t wait.
