Jude, you have become a new creation and have clothed yourself in Christ. See in this white garment, 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 that is very important.

Something that cannot wait. Leo, what are you doing? What I should have done from the very beginning.

I should have told the truth from the beginning. And I never would have been in this mess. I lied for Holly so many times. And I helped her break up Johnny and Schnell. And then she ODs and I lie because I don’t want her to get in trouble. And then the only one who gets in trouble is me. Sir, are you sure you don’t want to schedule that private confession in the confessional?

No, this is something I need to say in front of everyone.

I get that telling the truth is hard, but Holly said she would. So why the hell did I tell her not to? I know why? Because I want her to think I was this totally selfless. God, it was so dumb and pathetic. Now I’m going to be stuck in this stupid room, writing in this stupid ass journal for a long time. And I have no one to blame but myself.

I’ve been to a lot of interrupted salient weddings, but a christening? Leo. Don’t make me regret inviting you. Why was he invited? Shall I summon the police and have Leo removed so he can crack on with the baptism? Honey, he hasn’t committed a crime. No, I wouldn’t be so sure about that. Oh. Shh, shh, shh.

What I neglected to say, well, the truth is, um,

I didn’t disclose that I am covering today’s blessed event for the society pages of the spectator. Therefore, if anybody has any objections to their photograph being taken. Speak now or forever hold your peace. Is that all? No. While I have the floor, I would also like to say, I know a lot of people here have suffered losses.

Speaking for myself, I lost the love of my life.

Not to death, but still, my heart aches for him and always will.

Nicole and EJ lost their baby, which was a terrible loss. And I know that it’s just the tip of the iceberg of losses that people gathered here today have suffered.

But precious baby Jude, who is being christened here today, Has his entire life in front of him.

And that brings us hope. And I am honored to be his very godfather. Some may cast a skeptical eye, but that is a role that I take very seriously. You see, this little boy means a lot to me because

Well, because he’s an amazing kid. Two godfathers for the price of one. Here’s one lucky kid.

Like sand through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.

Parents and godparents, this light is entrusted to you to be kept burning brightly. This child of yours has been enlightened by Christ. He is to walk always as a child of the light. May he keep the flame of faith alive in his heart. When the Lord comes, may he go out to meet him with all the saints in the heavenly kingdom.

You have been clothed in Christ, baptized in his name. Alleluia. Hallelujah. I need some air. John?

Doc, why don’t you go back inside? I’m okay. I just I didn’t feel comfortable hanging out in the house of the Lord, knowing what I’ve done. But isn’t this really the best place?

God’s mercy has no bounds. Do

you remember what I said this morning before we came to the christening?

I urged you to focus on the blessings of the day. Our family and a new child. Forget about your own pain for right now. Just for, just for the one day, you know, and I love you. If you can’t do that for yourself, then maybe you could do it for me, because it’s very hard for me to see you suffering.

Constantine was able to forgive you for the death of his daughter, if you even had anything to do with that. So can’t you at least forgive yourself?

My whole family’s at a baptism right now, and I hope they’re praying for a miracle for me. Because otherwise I’m gonna be trapped in this place for a really long time.

Um, okay, I’m taking off. I’m gonna go see Tate, okay? Okay, tell him I’ll be there, uh, by the time biz hours are over, okay? I will. Hey, hey. So, a little dramatic interlude? What the hell was all that about? Ah, language, Melinda. Have you forgotten that we are in a church? No, but I think you’ve forgotten not to be a blithering idiot.

My God, I think I saw my life flash before my eyes. Yeah, well, all’s well that ends well. Holly, honey. EJ and I are gonna head out. We need to get home before the guests start arriving. Okay, sounds good. Um, I’ll see you in a few. Alright, I’ll see you at home. Okay.

How was the star of the show? He was such a trooper, huh? Yes, he was. Shit. And now his little eyes are closing, so we’re gonna take him to the car. Great. You know what, I’ll be right there. Okay.


Hey. What is it? Hi, Mom. Hi, my love. Wow, nice dress. You look very pretty. Thank you, honey bunny. Um, tell us the christening. Oh, Jude got through it with flying colors. Didn’t even cry once. Really? Mm hmm. And your dad was a very, very proud godfather. Yeah, he’s gonna be a great one. Make sure to tell him that, okay?

Cause he’s not so sure. Why isn’t he sure? Oh, is it because I’m a screw up? What? No, Tade. It’s because he thinks he is, and we both know he isn’t. He loves you so much with all of his heart. He’s a really good dad. Actually, I, I took this picture of him at the christening. Like, there he is. With his godson. Oh my god, he’s holding him like a little football.

Yeah, he used to hold you like that too, you know. Are you scrolling for pictures of Holly, Doug? No, I was actually looking for one of you and Alex. Didn’t he go with you? No. Actually, we broke up. Oh. I didn’t know. It’s because of me, isn’t it? You

doing okay?

You know, I knew it was going to be hard watching Eric and Sloane christen their son after just losing our little baby. But I, I am glad that I showed myself I could get through it. And you did. You were heroic, in fact.

Hey, Jay, I don’t, I don’t know about that. I, I just, my whole goal was to not fall apart and I think I managed that. Anyway, thank you, thank you. For letting me do this. Throwing the reception, I mean. I’m not letting you do anything, sweetheart. I’m so proud of you. How generous you are. So nice that you, that you’re willing to do this, that you want to do this.

I don’t know how you feel about Eric. But this is important to you, so it’s important to me.

You know, I couldn’t help but be distracted by Holly at the church. I mean, I know she was reluctant to go because she didn’t want to be around Theresa and Brady, but it’s important. I mean, she’s just not only seemed uncomfortable, but she seems so sad. It’s not like her at all. Hey, she’s been through a hell of a lot.

I’m sure it’s just gonna be a long time before she feels like her old self again. Yeah? It’s okay. Eric, if I

tell you something, will you promise not to tell anyone else? I promise. I might not be a priest anymore. But anything said in confidence here is sacred to me. I promise. Whatever you share with me will stay between us. Okay, then. God, I’m ashamed I’ve kept this a secret for so long and I don’t think you’re going to be too shocked when I tell you this, but you’re going to be really disappointed in me.

The night that I OD’d, I’m 100 percent sure the drugs I took weren’t teeth. Because they were mine.

Oh, you’re still here? Yeah, and I’d like a word. I sense a lecture coming. Leo, while I am very grateful you didn’t blow our baby swap secret sky high in the middle of Jude’s christening, How should I say this? Are you insane? Look, me in a church is like Mother Teresa in a casino. I was a fish out of water.

I was overwhelmed by the majesty of it all. And that priest, he got me feeling all repentant. Then I looked over at Nicole, and she looked so sad, and I started thinking about the night Jude was born, and I don’t know. I think I was compelled by the Holy Ghost. Whatever, the point is I was moved to do the right thing by Nicole and EJ.

Until EJ mentioned calling the authorities and you realized how much trouble you would be in. Well, yeah, until then. That’s part of why I decided to shift gears. Yeah, and before you did that strategic shifting, I highly doubt you considered how much trouble we’d be in. Although I imagine you thinking of your gravy train ending factored into you not blurting out the truth.

Well, I saw Sloane looking all Madonna esque. Oh, the Virgin, not the Queen of Pop. The Virgin. Oh, clearly it was an apparition. And then I glanced at Nicole and I thought about that pouty teen Holly and what a hot mess she’s turned out to be and I thought, it might be best for everyone if I keep my mouth shut.

Yeah. So I did. Will you both stop looking at me like I’m Vlad the Impaler? I am looking at you like you’re Leo the loose lipped nutjob who almost ruined my life! And mine! And yours! Well, almost doesn’t count, now does it? Look, I promise I will never be tempted again to tattle on the three of us. Can you both stop being negative Nancys and let’s go party?

The champagne sitch at the DiMera mansion, it is on point. I would not.

Hello everybody. Hey. Hi. See you again.

Marlena. Oh. John. Hey buddy. How’s it going? Eh, it’s going well. Where’s your wife? Well, she was hoping to get here on time, but they were short staffed at the hospital. She couldn’t leave. Oh, what a shame. Hey. Hey there. Hi there. Hi. And where’s, uh, where’s Kate? Well, she’s here. She’s helping, uh, put up the buffet tables.

That, uh, Christine was very moving, wasn’t it? It was perfect.

Joan, um What are you up to? Catch that incredible Royals Rangers game Sunday? No, I missed it. Excuse me. What did I say? It’s not you, man. Is he okay? Marlena. No, he’s not.

Damn you all.

Talking to yourself? Never a good sign. I’m here because I love Eric and his little boy, but I can’t get out of this house soon enough. You’re free to leave anytime. E. J. It was so kind of you and Nicole to host the reception. Oh, this was all Nicole’s idea. I assume it’s my fault that Sammy isn’t here today?

No. Could be further from the truth. Sammy actually had a friend who’s recently lost her husband, so she felt she had to be with her. Oh, I see. And Belle? Belle is with Sean. Oh. Well, I wish them all the very best. No, you don’t. Demures don’t wish the very best to anybody but themselves. Just screw everybody else.

John. My grandson is locked up because of that stuff your brother is spreading out there on the street. Running a drug front for Clyde West and doesn’t get any more evil than that. And I

And you’ll what? John.

Stay away from my family, Junior. You’re real. Or I’ll You need to learn to finish your sentences, John. I think you know how he was going to finish that sentence.

No, Tate. Alex and I didn’t break up because of you. Why would you think that? Guys, you’ve had to take so much time dealing with my problems, worrying about me. You are my priority. You always will be. I’m done. Alex and I, we, we took a break because of a lot of reasons. Took a break? Does that mean that you’re going to get back together?

Why do you care? I don’t know. I guess because I don’t like seeing you alone, Mom.

Well, that’s really sweet. Um, I don’t know. Well, maybe Alex and I might get back together again. Hmm. Time will tell.

Finally made it. Oh, hi. Hi. I’m, I’m glad you did. And I think you’ll be happy to know that Kristen agreed to steer clear from today’s festivities. Oh, well, it’s always a pleasure not to see Kristen. It’s open to see Rachel, though. Brady, I’m sorry. I, I can’t. It’s Imagine being separated from my own child.

Yeah, it’s, it’s, it’s pretty bad. But it’s also pretty selfless of you to do this for Eric and Sloane, given that you just recently lost a child. I mean, everything you’ve been through, really? Brady, it’s not selfless, it’s selfish. You know, I guess I’m just trying to prove to everyone, including myself, that I can be truly happy for them.

And are you? Mostly. More or less. You know, I really thought everyone would be here by now, and, and, and, we’re in the world with Holly. You must be so disappointed in me. I’m not here to judge you. I promise I won’t tell anyone. But I insist that you tell your parents. No, I can’t. Tate even said I shouldn’t.

Do you really think Tate wants to stay in a halfway house because of what you think your parents are going to think of you? Eric, it’s not about me. It’s about my mom. She’s going to have such a hard time when she finds out I’m not her perfect little girl. She’s going to blame herself for everything. For the baby dying, my ODing, and After all she’s been through, this would kill her, Eric.

Holly, your mom is a lot stronger than you think. I don’t know. Well, I do. She is tough, and she is resilient. Trust me, I know.

You’re in agony, all because of this.

Tate is suffering because of your behavior. Yeah, I know.

Holly, you need to do this. Not just for Tate, but for yourself.

Eric, are you coming? Can’t have the guest of honor being late. You’re right. I’ll be right there.

Holly, I want you to think about what I said.

When’s this party getting started? Uh And where are the guests of honor? No idea. Ah, I have arrived. Well, this should liven things up. Bill. Huh? What was that all about, to start you, Paul? Back at the chapel? What do you mean, stunned? All I did was give a heartfelt speech about love and loss and the preciousness of life.

For which I got a round of applause, left many people feeling verklempt in case you didn’t notice. Yeah, well your speech didn’t exactly start out heartfelt. Alright, and why would you interrupt the christening? Just to tell people that you were here to cover the event. Prospector, why? Why would you cross examine a guest at said christening whose only intention was to lift people’s spirits?

Whose only agenda today is to celebrate your adorable grandson with whom I have a very special relationship. And why would I actually somewhat believe this guy for once?

All right. How are you doing? Well, I’m, I’m okay. But I’m, I’m not sure about Holly. I mean, at first she wasn’t going to come to the service at all. And then she changed her mind and said she was going to drive herself. And then when I told her EJ and I were leaving, she said she’d be along in a few minutes.

And now I, I don’t know where There she is. Oh, honey, honey, honey. Stop. Oh, my God. No, no, honey. I’m fine.

Hey, buddy. I saw you staring at the old man’s portrait. You know, back in the day, when I worked for Victor, I did that willingly. But I had no choice when Dr. Rolf implanted that chip in my brain. And for all intents and purposes, turned me into Stefano.

I could have killed you, John. I came real close. But you didn’t. You didn’t kill me because there was something inside of you that stopped you. No. It was sheer luck. You saved yourself.

Well, I just wish I could have done something to save that young woman.

Holly, what are you doing out here? Uh, you know, I just, um, needed some fresh air. It’s really stuffy in there. Yeah, it’s a little chilly outside. You’re not even wearing a coat. Why don’t you come inside?

You know, I was, I was actually hoping that Johnny and Chanel would be here. I, I’d ordered them a wedding gift and it finally arrived and I thought I would give it to them. I actually have it in my trunk. Oh, that’s very thoughtful of you, Marlena. As you may know, Johnny and Chanel have hardly left Paulina’s side, but they did manage to carve out some time and get to the Salem Inn to celebrate their wedding night.

Albeit a few weeks late. Okay. Thanks for letting me know. You’re welcome. I love it. Stefanoff’s. Gotta be turning in his grave. A house full of braids, celebrating a happy family occasion. Steve, would you tell me what’s going on with that guy? Sorry, dude. Not my story to tell. Sorry everyone. We had a diaper emergency, but, uh, you see all these people there for you, bud.

What do you think? Oh. Damn, where’s that plastic bag? You mind if I try? Yeah, we can play pass the pussy, baby. Yeah. There you go. Alright.

Wow, so many friendly faces, not one of them’s a fellow JD. Hey, you are not a juvenile delinquent, Tate. Oh, Uncle Eric looks so happy in this one. But, Nicole doesn’t, she looks really worried, doesn’t she? Yeah, actually, in that picture, she does. It’s weird, right? I mean, I think that she’d be happy now that Holly’s out of her coma and doing really well.

Still, I think it was really rough for her to go today, you know, considering she lost a baby a few months ago.

Someone’s had a big day. Yes. It was a great day. Oh yeah. Here you go, mama. Almost perfect.

Uh, if I could have everyone’s attention, please, just for a second. I would love to make a toast. To my beautiful, beautiful godson. And to my brother. And my sister in law. My brother Eric. He’s been waiting a long time to be a dad. And I have no doubt that he’s gonna be a hell of a good one. I learned from the best.

And Sloane, You’ll undoubtedly be a wonderful mother. So with that, Cheers, and God bless! Cheers!

Where the hell is Holly?

Serenity House, Salem. This is Olivia. How may I help you? Hello. May I please speak with Tate Black? This is his mother. Tate? You have a call? Hello? It’s your mother? What?

I’m his mother. I will take that call. Thank you. Who is this? Hello?

So what do you think, Doc? Can we get out of here yet? Oh. I’m sure Eric will understand. All right.

Hey, great party. Especially the food. Yeah, I agree. Are you leaving already? And by the way, where’s Kate? Uh, she’s helping pack up the leftovers. We’re gonna donate them to a food bank. Well, that’s very nice of you. Eric, darling, it’s been a wonderful party, but we have to go. Okay. It was a beautiful christening.

Thank you. Thank you all for being here. Hey, we love that little guy. And we love this big guy too. We’ll see you, Eric. Love you. Love you. Congratulations, man.

Well, this boy’s looking ready for a nap. I think the party’s over. Yeah, okay, um

Something wrong? Can I get a minute? I just need to talk to her before we leave. Again? Well, it’s important. Well, Jude’s about to start screaming his head off, so Well, I just can’t leave yet. Well, I can’t leave yet. As awesome as this party has been, despite the boring and snooty guests, so how about I give you and the baby a ride home, swan dear?

Sure. And we’ll drop Melinda off too. Oh, great. I’ll be happy to drop Melinda on her head at her house. Hey, Leo, would you, uh, mind grabbing the seat out of the car? Sure. Shall we?


is trying to be nice but it would have been a hell of a lot easier if we could have just had the party here. Yeah, we wouldn’t have had to slap all this stuff over to that old mausoleum.

Oh good, you’re open. Don’t tell me you’re still hungry. Actually, I’m looking for a scotch. A little early, don’t you think? Don’t dare judge me, man. I have no special occasion. How about that? Does this have something to do with what’s going on with John? Could say that.

Well, you know, when I was a priest. I used to tell all my parishioners that no one was ever unworthy of God’s love and forgiveness.

But then again, I really wasn’t a priest.

Because everything that I believed about myself was a lie. As is everything that I knew. I believe about myself now. I know, I know, I know. I shouldn’t allow myself to suffer so much over this because Constantine is the one who truly suffered. But, but do you think you can come up with a way to help me get through this?

What is that? Asking too much? It’s not asking too much,

and of course he will help you with it. I will too, because we are in this together. He’s sound asleep.

Well, you did have a very big day. All that love and attention, which some people never get in an entire lifetime. All in one day. Oh, is that your excuse for being an obnoxious, unscrupulous creep? Actually, it is. What’s yours? You know what? Since you both seem to be in this let’s insult Leo mode, despite the fact that he already has very low self esteem, I will be on my way.

Leo, before you go, I need to say that what happened today can never, ever Don’t worry, I will never try and do the right thing again. We have made this pact official, Leo. No one will ever speak about how this is Nicole’s baby ever again. Hand to God. And look, if I couldn’t tell the truth in a church, what would possess me from trying to tell the truth somewhere else?

Oh wait, I know. If the money stops rolling in. How did I know you’d say that? The same way I know that the money will keep rolling in, otherwise our three lives go down the proverbial toilet. We are an unholy trinity, girls. The only three people in this town who know that that child sprang, or rather was pulled very lovingly and gently by me, From Nicole DiMera, and we are the only three who will ever know.

I’ve instructed the staff you are not to receive any more calls here. Great.

Who was that? I don’t know, Mom. You’re the one who talked to her. It was Holly, wasn’t it? Maybe. Has she done that before? Called you here? Once. Did you talk to her? I thought she was you. Oh my god, you should have hung up then. Right when you realized that it wasn’t me. I mean, do I have to remind you that there’s a restraining order here?

We just talked about this this morning. Do you want to go to jail? Tay, do you, do you want to ruin your whole future? What is wrong with that girl? Hasn’t she done enough to ruin your life? Mom. She better leave you the hell alone from now on.

Where’d everyone go? I just stepped out to take a work call. Didn’t you get them, my mom? Party’s over. It’s okay. I was, uh, on my way out anyway. I’m going to see Tate. Leave her alone. What do you mean, leave her alone? I was just stating a fact, EJ. Which you only stated to upset my stepdaughter. Okay, can we please not do this now?

Fine. Yeah. I’m outta here. Bye. Brady, wait. Don’t go yet. Why? I’m sorry, Mom. I’m so, so sorry. Sorry, honey, for what? The drugs.

The night that I OD’d. The drugs were mine.
