Days of Our Lives Update

Update written by Joseph

Paulina is in her office on the phone with Abe, talking about being free and clear of radiation. Paulina says she’ll see him tonight and hangs up. Chad then arrives and says he was passing through, so he thought he’d take a chance at meeting with her. Paulina says she has a few minutes and asks what she can do for him. Chad responds that he got a tip from someone and wanted to discuss it with her. Chad explains that this person claims that Paulina abused her power as Mayor and put the public health at risk. Paulina questions where he got this tip and who the hell told him that.

Everett works on his laptop at the Brady Pub. Everett thinks back to Marlena hypnotizing him. Marlena then arrives and greets him. Marlena offers to join him but Everett says he’s just finishing up an article, so he’s a little busy. Marlena says it won’t take long and sits down anyways. Marlena brings up Everett saying he did not want to continue hypnosis. Marlena asks if he’s changed his mind. Everett responds that he didn’t. Marlena questions why he lied to Stephanie then.

Stephanie walks through the town square and is disappointed to see the Bakery is closed. Chanel rushes up and apologizes for being late. Stephanie asks if everything is okay. Chanel explains that she slept through her alarm and was the only one scheduled to open. Stephanie says it’s okay as she’s here now. Johnny joins them and jokes that he drove like a bat out of Hell to get her there. Chanel tells Stephanie that she’ll give her a discount on whatever she wants. Stephanie says it’s fine as she was only there for two minutes and explains that she’s just picking up pastries for a potential client. Johnny asks about it not being for her. Stephanie notes that she already had breakfast as they had a little farewell gathering for Tripp and Wendy, but she had to leave early for a meeting. Stephanie notes that Tripp and Wendy are already two hours in to their flight now. Johnny questions where and what she’s talking about.

Julie joins Maggie in the living room of the Kiriakis Mansion. Maggie shows her roses from Konstantin. Julie announces that Kayla gave her the full clear from radiation, so no more isolation. Julie tells Maggie that she feels so guilty for not going to the cabin with Doug since she thought she’d be gone for only one night but it turned in to days and days. Julie notes that at this point in their lives, every moment together is precious. Maggie assures that they took good care of Doug so Julie thanks her. Maggie asks her about the isolation. Julie praises the guest house she arranged for her and how she spent the time trying to figure out how to open Tom’s time capsule but had no luck. Julie jokes that Tom and Alice must be laughing over it. Maggie then informs Julie that she has news for her and announces that she and Konstantin are getting married.

Konstantin rushes back to John and shows his card in his face to take control of John as the Pawn. Konstantin orders John to listen to every word he says because he has an extremely important mission for him. Konstantin informs him that he and Maggie are engaged, but there is one problem and John needs to solve it.

Stephanie thought Johnny knew that Tripp and Wendy have gone to spend time with Wendy’s family in Hong Kong. Johnny says he didn’t even know they were thinking about it and asks when they are coming back. Stephanie says she doesn’t know as it’s kind of open ended. Johnny can’t believe Wendy would leave without saying goodbye. Chanel comes back from opening the Bakery and tells Stephanie that she can have whatever she wants. Stephanie assures that she doesn’t mind paying but Chanel insists. Stephanie then heads to the Bakery. Chanel asks Johnny to set up a display table to give out cookies to the kids, but notes that Johnny is distracted and asks if everything is okay. Johnny claims he’s fine and asks what she needed.

Paulina asks if Chad got this tip from EJ because it’s almost exactly what he said yesterday. She asks if EJ asked Chad to publish a hit piece on her. Chad responds that he hasn’t spoke to EJ in quite some time. Paulina asks if he’s sure EJ didn’t e-mail or text him. Chad says he came to see her to get ahead of the gossip and find out what really happened at Smith Island. Paulina explains that there was a snow storm and her daughter went missing. Chad adds that Paulina left the hospital against doctor’s advice and illegally commandeered a snow plow to save her. Chad wants to get Paulina’s side of the story on the record if they can do that.

John questions Konstantin’s problem that he needs to solve. Konstantin explains that Maggie is marrying him in name only, which he can live with, but she also wants to keep him from getting what he came to Salem for; Victor’s fortune, and that he cannot live with. John asks what he needs him for.

Everett knows Stephanie is a huge fan of Marlena, so he didn’t want to make Marlena out to be a quack in front of her which Marlena questions. Everett knows that may sound harsh but talks about hypnosis being like a carnival act. Everett adds that he’s signed his divorce papers so the cord is cut from Jada and he’s ready to move on with his life. Marlena says she’s glad about that for him, but thinks he would still benefit from therapy. Marlena adds that if he doesn’t want to continue seeing her, he might want to find a different therapist. Everett thanks her for the recommendation but doesn’t think he will be continuing therapy with anyone as he’s ready to move on. Everett then takes his laptop and exits the Pub.

Paulina tells Chad that whoever he got this tip from, she guarantees it’s all been blown out of proportion. Chad questions that since the firefighters had to wear hazmat suits to protect themselves from the radiation. Paulina calls it an overreaction. Chad says he knows she was warned against being in close proximity with people before her numbers went down and she was brought back to the hospital in a hazmat suit. Paulina argues that her numbers were going down so the risk was minimal. Chad questions why she didn’t notify anyone that she was leaving the hospital then. Chad tells Paulina that he got quotes from the guy she stole the snow plow from and questions where she even learned to drive one. Paulina explains that she used to run a construction company in Miami and says it’s no different than driving a bulldozer. Chad guesses she doesn’t deny that it happened then.

Maggie explains to Julie that Konstantin has lost so much in his life and has told her how it’s been a tremendous comfort to him to stay in Salem. Maggie says for her, his presence is a comfort. Maggie adds that Konstantin can’t stay in the country unless he becomes a citizen by marriage, so she decided to make that happen for him. Julie calls it an example of Maggie’s enormous generosity. Maggie thanks her for understanding. Julie knows that she has thought it through and knows what she wants. Maggie calls it a positive thing to have Konstantin stay with his friendship and companionship. Julie hopes Maggie will protect herself going in to this marriage, financially. Maggie knew it was wise to have a prenup and notes that Konstantin signed it immediately with no resistance at all. Maggie adds that Konstantin knows if she dies before him, Victor’s entire fortune goes to his children. Julie calls Maggie very wise and says she supports her decision completely. Maggie thanks her again for understanding and for her friendship as they hug.

Konstantin explains to John that Maggie insisted that he sign a prenup and she locked it in the wall safe at the Kiriakis Mansion, so he needs him to break in to the safe and steal the prenup. Marlena knocks on the door and asks if everything is okay. Under Konstantin’s orders, John claims everything is just fine. Marlena questions why the door is locked.

Paulina tells Chad that she knows there are a few malcontents eager to slander her, mainly EJ because she called him out on his questionable behavior. Chad argues that this isn’t about EJ or anyone else trying to be vindictive and that no one is eager to slander her. Chad declares the fact is that Paulina left the hospital against medical advice and hijacked a snow plow so someone could’ve gotten seriously hurt, adding that Paulina didn’t have a license. Chad argues that there was no guarantee she would find Chanel, so she could’ve been seriously hurt or died trying to find her. Paulina points out that it didn’t turn out that way as Chanel is safe and she’s fine. Chad says they are all grateful but argues that she knows it was dangerous to be close to people while radioactive. Paulina complains that no parent in the world wouldn’t have done the same thing. Paulina asks if it was Chad’s children that were missing. Chad calls it not a fair question. Paulina says that’s because he knows very well he would do the exact same thing, regardless of whether or not he put others at risk. Paulina calls it a very minimal risk. Chad asks if she’s sure about that. Paulina declares that in the end, no one was affected by her being in close proximity as Chanel, Johnny, and Julie are all fine. Paulina tells Chad that it wants to write a fair article, he can ask Chanel if she would rather have froze to death in the snow.

Johnny tells Chanel that he will continue apartment hunting. Chanel mentions being exhausted if he wants to do some of the leg work on his own. Johnny agrees to do so but notes that it’s always awkward when landlords ask about his occupation. Chanel insists they only care that he can pay the rent and adds that the Bakery is doing good, so they are good. Johnny wonders if he should’ve given EJ’s offer more thought. Chanel argues that working for DiMera was never his dream. Johnny feels he needs some kind of job so Chanel encourages him to follow his dream which was always to make movies. Johnny says there’s no opportunities for that as he’d need to be in LA or New York and he’d never ask her to leave her mom or her bakery as their whole lives are here. Chanel asks if he’s sure about that. Johnny assures that he is.

Stephanie goes to the Spectator office where Everett is working. Stephanie stops and thinks back to confronting him at the Pub about how differently he acted towards her and Jada. Stephanie then greets Everett and asks if Chad is around as she had something to drop off for the kids. Everett tells her that Chad took off to do an interview while he’s struggling writing an article about May Day. Stephanie is glad that’s why he’s in a bad mood and not because he gave Jada the signed divorce papers. Everett assures it has nothing to do with that. Stephanie notes that Jada was relieved and assumes that he is too.

Konstantin shows the card in John’s face to turn off his control of The Pawn as Marlena calls out to him from behind the door. John then answers the door and claims he didn’t know the door was locked. Marlena sees Konstantin and asks if she’s interrupting something. Konstantin claims that he just came by to invite them to his wedding which Marlena questions. Konstantin realizes Maggie hasn’t told her and says it’s his fault. Konstantin asks Marlena to pretend to be surprised when Maggie tells her. Marlena can’t imagine Maggie would mind him telling them. Konstantin says he should get going and that he’ll be in touch as he then exits. Marlena asks John what Maggie is thinking and what Konstantin said. John struggles to remember and says he doesn’t know. Marlena questions how he can’t know when he was just there. John says he can’t remember exactly. Marlena asks if he talked about anything else. John says he doesn’t think he did. John states that he remembers them talking but he can’t remember what about. John realizes this isn’t the first time this has happened and complains that the exact same thing happened when he met Konstantin in the park. John wonders what the hell is going on with him which Marlena calls a very good question.

Everett tells Stephanie that she’s totally right and asks why he would have misgivings about divorcing Jada since he doesn’t even know her and wants nothing to do with her. Everett thinks he was only hesitant to sign the papers because he felt it was forgery to sign as Robert Stein, but thanks to her, he got over that reluctance. Stephanie is glad that he did for Jada’s sake and his own. Everett states that Stephanie really helped him realize that he needed to do that in order to put all of this behind him and that’s great. Chad then arrives and greets them. Stephanie tells him that she has something for the kids and that’s why she’s there. Chad calls that very sweet. Stephanie asks about his interview. Chad says he’s not sure it will pan out but it doesn’t look good. Stephanie mentions passing by the toy store so she got a teddy bear from Charlotte and action figures for Thomas. Chad assures they will love it. Chad says he’s going to get lunch before his next interview. Chad tells Stephanie that Thomas keeps asking when she will come over to play cards. They decide on this weekend so Chad says he’ll let her know. Chad tells Everett that he will reach out to him later and exits. Stephanie tells Everett that before Chad came in, he was talking about putting it all behind him and asks what exactly he means by that. Everett thinks it’s time to forget about Bobby Stein and move on with his life.

Paulina goes to the town square and sees Johnny and Chanel at the Bakery. Paulina thinks back to being at the cabin with Chanel, Johnny, and Julie. Paulina then joins Chanel and Johnny and hugs them. Johnny says she’s looking great. Paulina says she’s feeling great too but does have a favor to ask Johnny. Paulina informs them that the Spectator has been sniffing around her office and asking questions about her leaving the hospital for Smith Island. Paulina adds that she has no doubt that EJ is behind it. Paulina says she doesn’t want to put Johnny in an uncomfortable position, but she thinks EJ is out to get her and asks if there’s anything he can do to help.

Konstantin goes home and greets Julie with Maggie. Julie congratulates him on the engagement and says she’s very happy that he will get to stay in the country and she knows how much Maggie enjoys his company. Julie asks when the big day is. Maggie says they are still discussing that. Julie is sure they will let her know and goes to get breakfast for her and Doug. Konstantin feels that Julie is concerned about their marriage. Maggie informs him that she was actually very supportive of her decision. Konstantin claims all he wants is to be in Salem and close to her. Konstantin supposes they should tie the knot as soon as possible. Maggie assures that she won’t let the deadline pass and he won’t have to leave Salem.

Marlena suspects that when John is with Konstantin, a part of him shuts down as a way of trying to forget the memories of what he put him through. John questions that being why he can’t remember any of their conversation just now. Marlena thinks it’s one explanation, but not the only one.

Johnny asks Paulina about her disagreement with EJ last night. Paulina says that Chad showed up at her office this morning with all these questions and twisting around what actually happened. Paulina complains that it sounded almost exactly like what EJ said last night. Johnny and Chanel tell her they are sorry. Paulina repeats that she hates putting Johnny in the middle of all this, but asks if he could put in a good word for her with Chad. Johnny agrees to do that. Paulina thanks him and says to tell him how she saved Chanel and told everyone to stay away from her as she was trying to be as responsible as possible. Chanel suddenly feels sick and rushes off to throw up, leaving Paulina and Johnny concerned.

Chad goes to the Kiriakis Mansion and says he just came by to drop Stephanie’s gifts off for the kids and get them something to eat. Maggie mentions the cook making a marvelous pot pie. Chad asks Konstantin if he found the thing he was looking for since he was really shaken up about it. Konstantin confirms that he did and that it was symbolic of something complicated but it reminded him of his daughter. Chad is glad he found his card and heads to the kitchen.

Stephanie reminds Everett that he still doesn’t really understand what happened in his past and there are still so many unanswered questions about Bobby Stein and his marriage to Jada. Everett doesn’t want to talk about that anymore as he’s tired of diving in to the past, looking for answers that may not exist. Everett thinks it’s a waste of time. Stephanie questions how it can be a waste, arguing that he has to understand his past to be able to live fully now. Everett disagrees and says he feels fully capable of living his life now. Everett says you can’t live in the past and have got to be in the here and now. Everett knows his case is complicated, but he really feels like he’s turning a corner and argues that his past has nothing to do with his life now. Everett repeats that it’s a waste of time which Stephanie still questions. Everett then remarks that Marlena must agree and claims that she discharged him from therapy. Stephanie asks why he would be discharged from therapy when she thought he was making progress. Everett says he was and now he thinks he’s gotten everything he could possibly get out of his sessions with Marlena. Everett acknowledges that he might never get access to those memories and claims they agreed that the best use of their time would be for him to focus on the here and now, moving forward. Everett brings up that after his accident, the specialists told him that his memories might be permanently erased, so he’s just learned to live with that. Stephanie argues that he was making progress until he freaked out during hypnosis. Everett claims that Marlena said that’s pretty common and that she considered it a breakthrough of sorts. Everett insists that he’s excited to start making new memories, hopefully with Stephanie.

Chad asks Julie if there’s any news on when they can go home. Julie tells him that the contractor said everything is going beautifully. They agree it will be wonderful when they can go home. Chad wants to ask Julie about her experience at the cabin which she agrees to. Chad asks how Julie feels about Paulina exposing her to radiation. Julie understands completely her compulsion to find her missing daughter and she’s still very upset that everyone had to go in to days of isolation because of Paulina’s rash behavior. Julie thinks Paulina should be protecting her people instead of putting their lives at risk. Julie declares that because of Paulina exposing them to radiation, they all could have become very ill so she just thanks God that they didn’t.

Chanel comes back to Johnny and Paulina and says she’s not feeling well. Paulina asks if she can get her anything. Chanel says she called in another employee for the Bakery. Johnny notes that Chanel was tired yesterday and this morning. Johnny doesn’t want to scare her, but notes that Kayla said they should look out for symptoms of radiation poisoning like fatigue. Paulina begins to panic. Johnny thinks they should get Chanel to the hospital but Chanel wants to just rest and then they can see tomorrow morning. Paulina refuses to play around with this and insists on getting her checked. Johnny goes to get the car.

John tells Marlena that something isn’t right here and he doesn’t know what it is, but he’s glad she showed up when she did. John mentions feeling disoriented so Marlena decides they will get him home.

Konstantin looks at his card, saying it was not meant to be today but declares that he will get what he wants next time.

Oh, yes. I finally got the all clear from Kayla. Not a trace of radiation left in my system. None at all. Yes, it’s a big relief. I adore you too, Abraham. See you tonight.

Judd. Hello. Mayor Price. What, what brings you here? Did we have an appointment? Uh, no. Actually, I, I just, uh, was passing through and thought I’d take a chance on, uh, meeting with you. But, uh, now’s not a good time, honestly. I could come back. It’s fine, fine. I got a few minutes. Please, please. Sit down. So what can I do for you?

Um, I got a tip from someone and, uh, and I wanted to discuss it with you. Okay.

Look, this person claims that you abused your power as mayor and, um, put the public health at risk. Excuse me, abused my power. So, where did you get this tip, Chad? Who in the hell told you that?

Everett, you’re safe. You’re safe

right now. Nobody’s going to hurt you. No. I’m not. I’m not safe.

Hello, Everett. Dr. Evans. Good to see you. You too. Would you mind if I join you? You know what, um, I’m just, I’m finishing up an article, so I’m, I’m a little busy. Well, it won’t take long. Okay, sit right down.

Last time we spoke You said you did not want to continue hypnosis. Yes, that’s correct. And did you change your mind? No.

Why did you lie to Stephanie?


Stephanie, I am so sorry. I’m late. No problem. Is everything okay? Yeah. Yeah. I just slept through my alarm this morning and I was the only one on the schedule to open. Hey. You’re here now. Okay. Only because I drove like a bat out of hell to get her here. Aww. Okay, um, I can’t even believe that I slept through my alarm, but whatever you want, I will give you a discount, okay?

Why? Why? I was only here two minutes. I just wanted to pick up some pastries for a prospective client. Oh, they’re not for you. No. No. I already had breakfast at my mom and dad’s. We had a little farewell gathering for Tripp and Wendy. Okay. Okay. I had to leave early, unfortunately. And they’re, uh, they’re already about two hours into their flight.

A flight? Where? What are you talking about? Constantine.

And since you’re here, I assume You assumed correctly. Uh, Kayla has given me the all clear and no more isolation and no radiation in my system. Oh, Julie. Oh, that’s such a relief. Oh, more than a relief. I’m, I’m, I’m elated. And Doug is elated, too, and he’s been very clingy today. Well, I could imagine. Well, I’ve been clinging myself.

Maggie, I feel so guilty that I, that I didn’t go to the cabin with him. I thought I would just be away for one night and it turned out, because of radiation, to be days and days and, you know, at this time of our lives. Every day together is so precious. Well, we took good care of him when you went around.

Yes, he told me. He said you were great, and I thank you so much. Well listen, the isolation, it didn’t drive you stir crazy? No, and in that beautiful guest house that you arranged for me? No, I read a lot and I meditated and And I really tried to figure out how to open grandpa’s time capsule, but To no avail.

Oh no, how frustrating. Yeah, frustrating. And I just know that my grandparents are having a good chuckle over my distress. Yes, I’m sure they are. Well, now that you’re back, I have some news for you, Julie. Ah, I’m listening. Well, before word gets out, I wanted to tell you myself. Constantine and I are getting married.


Now listen closely to every word I say, because I have an extremely important mission for you. What’s my mission? Magi, Kiriakos, and I are engaged to be married, but there is just one problem. And you, my obedient pawn, need to serve it.

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

I thought you knew. Trip and Wendy decided to spend some time with Wendy’s family in Hong Kong. No, no, didn’t even know they were thinking about it. Um, when are they coming back? I’m not sure. I think it’s kind of open ended. Wow, uh, I can’t believe Wendy would have left without saying goodbye. Stephanie, uh, you can help yourself to whatever you want.

Everything is on me. Why? I, I, Chanel, I only got here two minutes ago, okay? I’m happy to pay for my pastries. How about you just grab what you want and then we can argue about it after. No arguments.

Johnny, would you help me set up a display table? I wanted to give out some cookies to the kids for May Day. Um, and I know it’s kind of old fashioned, but Everything okay? Huh? Are you okay? Uh, yeah, yeah, no, I’m fine. What’d you say you needed?

So, Uh, Did you get this tip from your D. A. brother? Because it happens to be almost exactly what came out of his mouth yesterday. Did E. J. ask you to publish a hit piece on me? I haven’t spoken to him in quite some time. You sure he didn’t send you an email about it then? A text? Look, Mary Price, I came to see you because I wanted to get ahead of the gossip and find out what really happened at Smith Island.

What really happened was there was a snowstorm and my daughter went missing. And you left the hospital against your doctor’s advice and illegally commandeered a snowplow to try to find her.

Mayor Price, I, I would like to get your side of the story. On the record. If we can do that.

You say you have a problem you need me to solve. I do. You see, Maggie Kiriakis is marrying me in name only. Well that I can live with. But she also wants to keep me from getting what I came to Salem for. I do. Victor’s fortune. And that I cannot live with. So what do you need me for?

Look, I, um I know Stephanie’s a huge fan of yours, so I didn’t want to make you out to be a quack in front of her. A quack? A quack. I know that must sound harsh, but, I mean, you must know, uh, hypnosis is a pseudoscience. It’s, it’s barely a step up from a carnival act, in my opinion. Besides which, uh, the divorce papers that I’ve been so relentlessly pursued to sign are now signed.

So the court is cut from Jada and I’m ready to move on with my life. Well, I’m glad about that for you. And, uh, in spite of your disdain for hypnosis, I think you would still benefit from therapy. And if you don’t want to continue seeing me, a quack, as you say, you might want to find a different therapist.

Thank you for the recommendation. Um, I take it to heart, but I don’t think I’ll be continuing therapy with you or with anyone else. As I said, I’m ready to move on, so if you’ll excuse me. Chad,

wherever, whoever you got this tip from, I can guarantee you it’s, it’s all been blown out of proportion. Really? Because I heard the firefighters had to wear hazmat suits to protect themselves from the dangers of the radiation. Because they were ill informed. It was an overreaction. Look, Mayor Price, I’ve checked it out.

Okay, I know the facts. I know that you were warned against the risks of being in close proximity with people before your numbers were down. They weren’t down. The firefighters checked it out too. You were in a hazmat suit when they transported you back. My numbers were going down. I felt the risk was minimal.

Okay, then why didn’t you notify anyone you were leaving the hospital?

I got quotes from the public works guy, too, who you strong armed the snowplow from. I mean, where’d you even learn to drive a snowplow? I used to own a construction company in Miami. I learned how to drive heavy equipment. Driving a snow plow is no different than driving a bulldozer.

So then you don’t deny that it happened.

Constantine has lost so much in his life. And he’s told me so many times how it’s been a tremendous comfort for him to stay in Salem. And, you know, for me, his presence, it’s a comfort to me. I know that, yes. Um, well, Julie, he can’t stay in this country unless he becomes a citizen through marriage. So, I decided to make that happen for him.

You probably think I’m crazy. No, no. I don’t think you’re crazy. I think it is, uh, an example of your enormous generosity. You want to help the man. Julie, thank you for understanding. Well, I know that you have thought this through. You know what you want. You know what you need. I do. And I think it’s a positive thing for me.

Cool. To have Konstantin stay here, his, his friendship and, and companionship.

Yes, of course. I just,

I hope you’re going to protect yourself going into this marriage, Maggie. I assume you mean financially. Yes. Yes, I am. Um, I knew it was wise for me to have a prenup. He signed it immediately. No resistance at all. He knows if I, um, predecease him, that the entire Kiriakis fortune goes to Victor’s children.

You have been very wise, and I support you in this decision completely. Oh, Julie. Thank you so much for understanding. And for your friendship. Oh. My future wife insisted that I sign a prenuptial agreement. She locked it in the wall safe in the study of the Kiriakis mansion. I need you to break into that safe and steal that prenup.

Ask who it is. Who is it? John, it’s me. Is everything okay? Tell her everything is just fine. Everything is just fine. Why is the door locked?

Look, Chad, I know there are a few malcontents out there who are Eager to slander me. Mainly D. A. DiMera, since I called him out on his questionable behavior. I’m sorry, but this isn’t about D. A. DiMera or, or anyone else trying to be vindictive. Mayor Price, no one is eager to slander you. The fact is, the fact is, is that you left the hospital against medical advice and you, and you hijacked a snowplow.

Now someone could have been seriously hurt. I know you say you have experience, uh, uh, uh, on how to operate, you know, that kind of vehicle, but you were in no shape to do so at that time. Not to mention, you don’t have a license. Okay. And there was no guarantee you were going to find Chanel. Mayor Price, you could have been seriously hurt.

Or died trying to find her. But it didn’t turn out that way, did it? Chanel is safe and I’m doing just fine. And for that, we are all very relieved. And grateful. But come on, Mayor Price. You know that it’s dangerous to be in close proximity to people while, while, while radioactive. You know how risky that is.

Chad, there is not a parent in the world who would not have done the same thing that I did, and you know it. Now, what if a What if it were your children that were missing? Wouldn’t you, wouldn’t you have gone to any lengths to try to find them? Empress, it’s not a fair question. It’s only not fair because you know very well you would do the exact same thing I did, regardless of whether or not you put others at risk.

Very minimal risk. Minimal? Are you sure about that?

In the end, no one was affected by my being in close proximity to them. Julie, Johnny, or Chanel, everyone is doing just fine. So, if you want to write a fair and balanced article about all this, why don’t you ask my daughter Chanel if she’d rather been left to freeze to death in that snow?

Hey, I, um, I wanted to ask you, uh, since you’re probably gonna be too busy to go apartment hunting today, did you want me to go ahead, scope some stuff out, or you wanna wait till we can both go together? Oh! Uh, sure, if you want to go alone, then, yeah, you could do that. I, I’m exhausted, and, um, if you wanted to do some of the legwork on your own, then, um, that would be awesome.

Okay, then, that’s what I will do. Oh, I gotta say, it’s always just a little awkward. When the leasing agent asks about employment, you know, trust fund 20 something isn’t exactly an occupation. Oh, stop. They don’t care how you get the money as long as you have it and you can pay the rent. And plus the bakery is doing really good right now, so we’re good.

Yeah, I don’t know. Maybe I just, I’ve kind of been thinking maybe I should have given my dad’s offer a little more thought. What? No. Working for DiMera Enterprises has never been your dream. Yeah, I know, but I should probably have some kind of job, right? Okay, then pursue what actually is your dream. You’ve always wanted to make movies.

Yeah, I have, but there’s no opportunities for things like that in Salem. I mean, I need to be in L. A., you know, or New York. And I would never ask you to leave your mom or your bakery. You should know your whole life is here. My whole life is here. You sure about that? Yeah, of course I am. Hey, I know

you got a lot going on these days, but what was with your 180 earlier? Excuse me? You wouldn’t give me the time of day outside, and then you were all Mr. Friendly when I came in. What’s up with that? I, um, I didn’t know I did that. Maybe I was distracted. Seemed you were evasive with Jada, too. I mean, you signed the divorce paper, so why don’t you give them to her and be done with it?

Did you change your mind or something? Sorry. Um, I gotta go.

Hey there. Hey. Hey. Chat around? I have something I wanted to drop off for Thomas and Charlotte. Ah, right. Um, no. She’s, uh, took off out of here to do an interview. I’m writing an article about May Day, which is as fascinating as it sounds. That explains the mood. I have rewritten the first paragraph like 28 times.

It’s brilliant. That sucks. But I’m kind of glad that that’s why you’re in a bad mood. I was worried it might have something to do with you giving Jayda the signed divorce papers. I don’t know. No. No. It’s, uh, nothing to do with that. Jada was relieved. Obviously.

I, I assume you are too?


Hi there. Why was the door locked? I didn’t know it was. Oh, uh, so am I interrupting something?

No, we were just, uh, I came by to invite you and John to my wedding. Your wedding? Oh, Maggie has not told you? No. No, she hasn’t said a word. Well, then that is my fault. I am sorry. Would you mind when Maggie does invite you that you pretend this is the first time you’re hearing it? No, I wouldn’t mind that, actually.

But I, uh, I mean, I can’t imagine that she wouldn’t mind you telling us.

Well, excuse me. I should be going. I will be in touch.

A wedding? My God, what is Maggie thinking? John, what did he say? Well, he, he said that, um, I don’t know. You don’t know? How can you not know? He, he was just here. Don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t. This is just so strange. I think he, he said something. About Maggie, I can’t remember exactly. Did he talk about anything else?

No. No, at least I, I don’t think he did not. Yes. Yes, I remember that we were both talking. What the? I can’t recall when we were talking about it, damn it all. This isn’t the first time this has happened. What do you mean? It just hit me a couple of weeks ago when I met Constantine in the park. The exact same thing happened.

Oh my god. Doc, what the hell is going on with me, honey? That’s a very good question.

You, you are totally right. You’re totally right. Why, why would I have misgivings about divorcing Jada? You know, I don’t even know the woman. I want nothing to do with her. I think the only reason that I was hesitant to sign those papers is, it’s because it seemed like it would be forgery, you know, just to sign as, as Robert Stein.

No, I, I know. I know that. But thanks to you, I, I got over that, that reluctance. I’m glad that you did. For Jada’s sake. And yours. Yeah. I’m glad I did too. You really helped me realize that I needed to do that in order to put all this behind me. It’s great.

Hi. Hey, Chad. Um, I have something for the kids. That’s why, that’s why I’m here. Oh, that’s very sweet. Uh, Everett said that you were doing an interview? Yes, I am. Uh, I just came by to grab this. Oh. Um, I’m not sure if it’s going to pan out, but if it does, I’ll loop you in. Okay. Well, um, here. I passed by a toy store and I couldn’t resist.

Just another teddy bear for Charlotte and some action figures for Thomas. Oh, look, it really doesn’t matter what it is because, you know, if it comes from you, they’re gonna love it. Uh, well, I’m gonna run home and grab lunch before my next interview and, uh, Oh, um, Thomas keeps asking when you’re gonna come over and play cards.

Oh, tell him soon. I’d love to see Charlotte too. Yeah. This weekend? Sure, just let me know. Uh, I’ll reach out to you later? Yeah. Everett,

before Chad came in, you were talking about putting it all behind you. Yeah. What exactly did you mean by that? I mean exactly that. I think it’s time to forget about Bobby Stein and Move on with my life. Haha. Hmm. Yes, it is. How are you?

How are you, sweetie? Um, you know what? I am grateful to be indoors, and I think I might have sprained my ankle. Oh, oh, I’m sorry about the ankle, but this is such a relief. Who found you? She was stuck out by that big rock area. Yeah. I was headed there when I saw the snowplow, Paulina. I drove it across the bridge to rescue Chanel.

Told you I was gonna find my girl. Well, well, we’re all very grateful, I’m sure, but you should have stayed in isolation. Yeah, I know, I know, I’m still radioactive, but I just Paulina! You exposed all of us! I just hope to God you haven’t done more harm than good.

Oh, how are two of my very favorite people doing on this fine day? Hi, Mama. Hey, baby. Paulina, you’re looking great. Oh, thank you. Thank you, Paula. Feeling great, too. Um, and well, um, I do have a favor to ask of my new son in law. Well, you just go ahead and name it. Um, the spectator has been sniffing around, um, my office asking about my leaving isolation at the hospital and going to Smith Island.

And after the disagreement, the DA and I had last night. Uh, I have no doubt he’s behind it. You’re talking about my dad? Yes, I am. And, well, Johnny, you know, I don’t want to put you in an uncomfortable position. Uh, but um, I think your papa’s out to get me. What do you think you can do to help? Ah, Julie! What a pleasant surprise!

Released from isolation, huh? Yes, I am, and I understand congratulations are in order. Maggie told you that we are engaged to be married, huh? Yes, she did, and I’m very happy for you that you will get to stay in this country, and happy for Maggie, because I know how much she enjoys your company. Not as much as I enjoy hers.

So, when is this big day? Oh, well, that’s something we’re still discussing. I see. Okay, well, I’m sure when you know, I will know. We will. And if you two will excuse me now, I’ve got to get some breakfast for Doug and myself. Yes, see you later, Judith. Yes, see you later. Yes, you will.

You changed your shirt. Oh, I’m always spilling coffee. Something tells me that Julie is concerned about this marriage. Well, actually, she was very supportive of my decision. I hope you told her about the prenup because I want her to know that all I want is to be here in Salem close to you and nothing more.

I told her about the prenup, yes. And that your lease expires at the end of the month. Well, I suppose that means we should tie the knot as soon as possible, yes? Don’t worry. I’m not going to let the deadline pass. I’ll make sure you don’t have to leave Salem.

I suspect that when you’re with Constantine, a part of you shuts down. It’s a way of trying to, well, forget the memories of what he put you through. Your subconscious is trying to Protect itself. So you think that’s why I can’t remember any of my conversation with him just now? Well, I think that’s one explanation, but But not the only one, right?

So you had a disagreement with my dad last night? That’s putting it mildly. And then, um, his brother, your Uncle Chad, shows up at my office this morning asking all these questions and twisting around what actually happened. And it, it sounded almost exactly like what your father said to me last night.

Paulina, I’m so sorry. Yeah, me too, Mama. And as I said, Johnny, I, you know, I hate putting you in the middle of all of this. Um, but, uh, Could you possibly put in a, a good word for me with, you know, with Chad? Yeah, of course. I will. I will. I will. I’ll, uh, I will. Thank you. Thank you, honey. And you know, tell him how I saved Chanel and I told, how I told everybody to stay away from me.

And I was trying to be as responsible as possible. You both know that, don’t you? Yeah, yeah, of course. I, uh, I, Hey, man. Everything okay? Yeah, I just suddenly feltqueasy. Oh, man.

Chad! Hey, there. Oh, hey. Nice to see you, Chubb. Yes, um, you too. Uh, I just came by to drop off some gifts that Stephanie got for the kids and, uh, I don’t know, grab a little bite to eat. Oh, well, cook. He made a marvelous chicken pot pie. And I’m sure there’s some left. Yeah? Yeah. Uh, I meant to ask you, did you, did you Final thing that you were looking for?

Oh, yes, I did. Thank you very much. Well, I know that you were really shaken up about it. You know, actually, it was a playing card that Constantine misplaced. And the reason I was shaken up is because it was symbolic of something that was It is too complicated to get into now, but suffice to say, it reminded me of my daughter, who I lost, as you know.

Yeah, I know. Well, I’m uh, really glad you found your card. Okay, see you later. Okay, enjoy the pot pie.

But Everett, you still don’t really understand what happened in your past. There are still so many unanswered questions. About Bobby Stein, your marriage to Jada. I just, I don’t want to talk about that anymore. I’m tired of deep diving the past looking for answers that frankly may or may not exist. I think it’s a waste of precious time.

Honestly. How can it be a waste of time? I mean, don’t you have to understand your past to be able to live fully now? I don’t know. Do you? I feel like that could just be a bunch of psychobabble. You know what I mean? I feel perfectly capable of living my life now, knowing what I know. And I feel fine. You can’t live your life in the past.

You’ve got to be in the here and now. Carpe diem, baby. Okay, those are, those are helpful bromides, Everett. But in your case? I know. My case is Complicated. Obviously, it’s complicated. I know that. I totally know that. But I really feel like I’m, I feel like I’m turning this corner right now. No more ruminating about things that may or may not have happened in the past that don’t have anything to do with my life right now.

No more being shrunk. It’s a waste of time, like I said. Really? A waste of time? Well, Dr. Evans must agree. In my case, because she actually discharged me from therapy.

Everett, why would you be discharged from therapy? I thought you were making progress. I was. And now I just I think I’ve gotten everything I could possibly get out of my sessions with Dr. Evans. You know, the fact of the matter is I might. Never get access to those memories that she was trying so hard for me to access.

So, she and I agreed that the best use of my time, and hers, would be for me to focus on the here and the now. Moving forward. I see. I think I told you this before, but After the accident, after I regained consciousness, the specialists all told me that my memories over the past few years Might be permanently erased.

So I, I’ve just learned to live with that. You’re making progress. Like I said. Until you freaked out during hypnosis. Yeah, well Marlena said that that’s actually pretty common. To freak out, um, during hypnosis. That happens to a lot of people. And actually she considered it a breakthrough. Of sorts. So, I know, it’s crazy, but I trust your judgment.

Honestly, I’m excited. I’m excited to start making new memories. Hopefully with you.

So, is there any news on when we can go home? Well, I was able to get a hold of the contractor and he said everything’s going beautifully. Wouldn’t it be wonderful when we can go home again? Oh, it’s going to be amazing. Um, I have to go to an appointment, but I was hoping I could ask you about your experience at the cabin, if you have time.

Oh, of course I do ask away. Well, um, how do you feel about Mayor Price exposing you to radiation? Um, I understand completely her compulsion to find her missing daughter. And I’m still very upset that everybody had to go into days and days of isolation because of her rash behavior. She is the mayor of the town.

I would think she should be protecting her people rather than putting their lives at risk. Right. So then you do feel like she put your lives at risk? It’s not a feeling, darling. It’s what happened. Because she did not stay in her isolation room at the hospital, Chanel and Johnny and I all could have become very ill.

I just thank God that we didn’t.

Hey, is uh, everything okay? Uh, yeah, uh, not, not really, but I’m not feeling well. Oh, honey, uh, can I get you anything? Water? Juice? Oh, uh, no, um, I already called Lauren. She’s gonna come in. She lives about five minutes away, so she should be here soon. You know, you were tired yesterday and this morning. Yeah, well, there’s stuff going around.

I know there is, but look, I don’t mean to scare you. It’s just Kayla said we should look out for any symptoms of radiation poisoning, like fatigue. Oh, no. Oh, my God, Janelle. Okay, Mama, Mama, it’s okay. It’s okay. No, no, no, it’s not, it’s not okay. Not if you’re feeling sick. No, I, I think we should just, let’s get you to the hospital right away.

Get you checked out. No, please, please, please, no. I just want to get some rest and then we’ll see how I’m feeling tomorrow morning. No, no, we are not playing around with this. Now, let’s get you checked. Alright, I’m gonna pull the car around, okay? Alright. Something’s not right here, Doc. I don’t know what the hell it is, but I’m

glad you showed up when you did. How do you feel right now? Not good. Disoriented. Yeah. Okay. Let’s get you home.

It was not meant to be. Not today.

But don’t worry. I will get what I want. Next time.

[ Dramatic music ]

Deacon: My god, it’s really you.

Finn: Mom, mom, it’s me. It’s finn. Can you hear me? Mom, can you hear me? Mom?

Deacon: Finn, is she alive?. Finn!

Steffy: Hey, babe. Just, uh, checking in, seeing if you are okay. Just been feeling a little uneasy after everything. All right, call me when you can. I miss hearing your voice. I love you.

[ Hope clears throat ] Hope, hey.

Hope: Everything all right?

Steffy: Yeah, I– I hope so.

Hope: Can’t get a hold of finn?

Steffy: He’s not picking up.

Hope: Hm, I’m sure he’s probably with a patient.

Steffy: Probably. Yeah.

Waitress: Wanna settle the bill?

Liam: Uh, no, thank you. Actually, I think I’m gonna be adding to it in a moment.

Waitress: Somebody else joining you?

Liam: Yeah, yeah. Somebody pretty special. Actually, somebody I haven’t seen in a really long… long time. There she is. Oh, my god. It’s been so long, ivy.

Ivy: Too long.

Ivy: Well, thank you for meeting me.

Liam: Uh, yeah, of course.

Liam: You know, I really wasn’t sure if you’d be interested.

Liam: Uh, come on. Come on.

Ivy: I’m just– I’m being– I’m being vulnerable, here.

Liam: So, um, what are you– what are you doing in L.A.?

Ivy: Well, not L.A. Exactly. I’m just passing through. But I made sure I scheduled an insanely long layover so i could spend a little time with my uncle eric.

Liam: Oh, my god, he must’ve been so thrilled to see you.

Ivy: Mm-hmm, yeah, he’s already tried convincing me to move back. He actually said there’s a huge void in the, uh, in the jewelry department.

Liam: Uh, yeah, there is and he should be offering you, like, a bazillion dollar contract.

Ivy: Oh, a bazillion?

Liam: Bazillion.

Ivy: Well, we didn’t get that far in the negotiations.

Liam: Ah, shame.

Ivy: Honestly, I’m just so happy to see him doing better and he just looks so healthy.

Liam: Yeah, it is. It’s a– it’s a huge relief.

Ivy: Mm-hmm.

Liam: What’s your secret?

Ivy: Well, what do you mean?

Liam: You just look so happy and beautiful.

Steffy: Yeah, I’m sure you’re right. I know when it gets crazy here, I can’t even pick up the phone and I’m not even saving lives, so.

Hope: I’m sure he’ll be in touch when he can.

Steffy: I know.

Hope: I mean, you– you have to admit, though, I mean, it must be a nice feeling, right?

Steffy: What?

Hope: Just knowing that a lot of people rely on your husband. You know, whatever he’s up to, I’m sure he is making a really big difference in someone’s life.

Steffy: Yeah, I know he is. He’s always dealing with a life or death situation.

Hope: Yeah, so, whoever is in finn’s care, they’re in capable and caring hands.

Deacon: Tell me we’re not too late. Finn, her eyes. Look at her eyes.

Finn: Mom. Mom, it’s me. It’s finn. It’s finn. You’re alive. You’re alive.

Ivy: You know, sometimes I do think about moving back to L.A. I did love it here.

Liam: Great, it’s settled. No take-backs.

Ivy: Yeah. Wait, what are you doing?

Liam: I’m, uh, calling your uncle eric. I wanna tell him to give you a corner office–

Ivy: No, no, no, please don’T.

Ivy: Uh, no one knows better how busy I am than eric, okay? There’s– my life is very, very busy in sydney. Too much to walk away from. But, you know, we’ll see. Never say never. Anyway, enough about me. How are you doing?

Liam: Uh, you– you know, I’m hanging in there.

Ivy: Yeah. Yeah, I was– I was sorry to hear about you and hope.

Liam: Uh, thanks. It’s okay. You know, it’s, um, it wasn’t easy to go through, but I think there are good things on the horizon. I mean, I’m– I’m– I’m, uh, concentrating on my work and– and my kids and, um, you know, who knows, maybe it’ll– it’s just preparing me for the next thing.

Ivy: Maybe someone from the past, even. After all, I did hear that, uh, that thomas left hope.

Liam: Uh, yeah, I can confirm that is true.

Ivy: And that benefits you, maybe. Do you see yourself going back to hope?

Steffy: Babe? Breakfast. You hungry?

Finn: Oh, um, no, I’m good. I’ll just– I’ll grab something later.

Steffy: Hey, you were like this last night. Quiet, distracted. Is it a work thing? You wanna bounce ideas off of me?

Finn: Thanks. I, um, right now I have more questions than answers, but hopefully that’ll change soon and when it does, you’ll be the first to know.

Hope: Sorry about that. There was a bit of a holdup at customs. So, any other questions?

Steffy: No, I think we are good. Everything looks on target. Um… actually, I do have one more question. Uh, how you doing?

Hope: You don’t mean with hope for the future, do you? You mean…

Steffy: You. How are you doing?

Hope: Well, it has been a bit of an adjustment since thomas and douglas aren’t in los angeles, but, uh, career-wise, I’m feeling rather positive. I think revamping hope for the future with rj, zende, luna, it’s been a really wonderful thing. So, I’m trying to focus on what I can control. The change has been challenging, but I have to believe that something good will come of it.

Steffy: Well, the line has been incredible. What about you? Have you, uh… I mean, are you seeing anyone?

Hope: Seriously, steffy? Thomas hasn’t been gone that long. Wait. What, are you hoping that liam and I get back together?

Deacon: You’re gonna be fine, baby. Just fine. Finn’s gonna take real good care of you. Oh, my god.

Finn: What?

Deacon: The chain. Any suggestions?

Sheila: Help me. Help me. Help me. Entresto is the #1 heart failure brand Harry & david makes mother’s day easy. Share a gift, made with love, with the mom in your life. Choose from hundreds of stunning baskets and towers. It’s the perfect way to say thank you – for everything. Harry & david. Life is a gift. Share more.

Liam: Oof, uh… could I see myself back with hope?

Ivy: Well, it– it seems like she’s available again.

Liam: Yeah, but I– I– I don’t think either of us are in a place where we wanna jump back in. Or just– how about– I– I don’t know. I don’t know what the future holds.

Ivy: Okay. Yeah, that’s fair enough.

Liam: I mean, I’ll– I’ll always care about hope, obviously. We– we have a child together, so there’s that.

Ivy: Yeah, well, like you do with steffy.

Liam: Yeah, no, I’m very, uh, I’m very fortunate that– that each of my girls belong to an incredible woman, um, and– and I’m thankful to hope and steffy just for being so cool about the co-parenting stuff and– and being such great role models to kids.

Ivy: Well, I’m sure they’re thankful for you, too. I mean, I know I would be. Any woman would. Liam, I hope you know that a lot of people think you’re pretty fantastic.

Hope: Yes, liam and I have been spending more time together, but that doesn’t mean that we’re… okay, look, all you need to know is that we have had some much needed conversations. Yeah, thankfully, the anger and resentment on both sides has calmed down a little, or at least it’s starting to, and I’m very, very grateful for that. I think it’s important to move past that, especially for beth’s sake. I want her to see her parents getting along, and I want to have a good relationship with her father.

Steffy: So you gonna make a play for liam?

Hope: You know, steffy, maybe you shouldn’t worry so much about liam and me. Maybe you should focus that energy on finn.

Finn: That’s what we’re gonna do, okay? We’re gonna help you. Are you in any pain? Deacon, we need to get her hydrated. Can you find something?

Deacon: I’m on it.

Finn: Okay. Let’s try to get you up. Okay? Okay, it’s okay. Sip on that, I got you. Take it slow.

Deacon: What’s– what’s wrong with her? Okay, easy girl, okay.

Finn: Okay. Struggling with the highs and lows of bipolar 1?

Liam: Hey, ivy forrester. Um… if I didn’t know any better, I might possibly think that you were almost flirting with me?

Ivy: Oh! Well, there’s no almost about it, actually. I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I’ll dial it back, I promise.

Liam: No, don’T. Mm-mm, no– no dialing. Don’t dial.

Ivy: I– I’m sorry. I’m not– I’m not trying to be forward. It’s just…

Liam: It’s just what?

Ivy: I, uh, whoo… I, um… I think about you a lot, liam. I haven’t forgotten all of the good times that we’ve shared, and… how close we became. And how close I wish we’d become. You know, I think I remember that most of all. How great it felt kissing you.

Steffy: Okay, well, they’re gonna send over the spring-summer collection, but we’re not gonna be paying additional fees, okay? Wonderful. Thank you. Okay. Where were we? Oh, yes. Finn. My focus is on him, my children and my family.

Hope: Okay. I just mean, you know, whatever happens between liam and me, I mean, it really shouldn’t matter to you, right?

Steffy: He is my daughter’s father.

Hope: I know. I just think in the grand scheme of things, because not really any of your business and you have bigger things to focus on. It’s just you’ve been through so much lately, and I mean, everything that happened with sheila…

Steffy: Yeah, it was extremely challenging. But we can finally put it behind us. Sheila’s gone. She’s dead. She’s never coming back.

Finn: Deacon, we’ve gotta get this off. There’s only so much I can do here.

Deacon: What can we do for her right now?

Finn: She’s malnourished, dehydrated. We need to get her to a hospital. Oh, sheila.

Deacon: Oh, sheila, sheila.

Finn: Sheila, sheila.

Deacon: Give me some more water. Okay, easy. Come on. Okay, come on, come on.

Finn: Slow.

Deacon: Okay. Okay. Okay, okay, okay, okay.

Deacon: There she is. There’s my beautiful girl. Everyone said I was crazy. Hell, I thought I was crazy myself, but I never stopped believing that you were alive.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

sleep on the plane, so thank you very much for the first class ticket.

Traci: Mm-hmm. And thank you for coming all the way from paris on short notice to talk to my sister.

Alan: Well, I’m always happy to have a chance to see ashley, but I’m a bit concerned about this one. I was worried about her after I last visited paris.

Traci: So, you did sense that there might be something else wrong?

Alan: Well, at the time, I attributed it to, uh, the emotional turmoil of the breakup of her marriage. But afterwards… I just began to worry that something deeper was brewing.

Traci: Well, I’m afraid we are at full boil.

Diane: Ashley, having a little afternoon pick-me-up?

Ashley: Yes. I thought I would treat myself to something strong and frothy. You know, I love mrs. Martinez to death, but her coffee can be weak.

Diane: Oh, I never thought so. Hm.

Ashley: And yet, here you are.

Diane: Oh, I’m picking up some brownies for harrison. They’re his favorite.

Ashley: Diane, you don’t have to explain yourself to me.

Diane: Huh. How are you feeling?

Ashley: I’m feeling fine. How are you feeling?

Diane: Uh, I’m good, and I’m glad to hear it. You– you’ve had your ups and downs lately. It’s been quite a roller coaster. For jack and traci, too.

Ashley: Yeah. If I didn’t know you so well, that butter wouldn’t melt in your mouth routine might actually work.

Diane: I’m not pretending to be concerned.

Ashley: Oh, don’t be that way. It’s a compliment. Kill ’em with kindness has always been my motto, too.

Michael: Okay. Thanks for the update.

Victor: Have you found anything?

Michael: No sign at all of jordan’s body. They searched the area of the riverbed below the spot you said she fell.

Victor: Michael, please, stop wasting time looking for a dead woman, all right? It is clear what you’d be looking for.

Michael: Victor, if by some chance jordan is still alive, she would be key to the–

Victor: That woman is gone. She’s of no use to us anymore.

Michael: Vict– victor, we have nothing to go on. Jordan’s body could be a clue. An address in her pocket, a number on her phone.

Victor: I am telling you to look for claire. She may well be fighting for her life as we speak.

Cole: How could you possibly recognize these keys?

Victoria: From the colors. Billy had a set just like this. I remember because katie used to play with them all the time.

Cole: Wait, wait you– you think they’re billy’s keys?

Victoria: No, but they could be from the same place. He had, um, he had a storage unit there. I remember. One opened the parking gate and the other one was for the front entrance. And then the other one was for the actual unit. This one says 23. Oh, my god. Is it possible that this is where jordan was holding claire? Type 2 diabetes?

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Michael: Okay. Message received. I’ll pull the team off of the search for jordan’s body and focus solely on other avenues for finding claire. Security cam footage, canvassing. We’ll go old school and door to door with flyers.

Victor: Go get to it, okay?

[ Phone ringing ] Yes, cole. Any update?

Cole: Well, I may have some good news. We found a set of keys that were hidden inside a doll like the ones my mother used to collect. Now, you may recall that nikki mentioned seeing one like it at the lake house. Victoria has seen something about these keys that she recognizes and she thinks that they could belong to a storage facility that billy used to use. She’s tracking down the address right now.

Victor: And do you think this is where jordan may hold claire hostage?

Cole: I hope so. If not, maybe we can at least have a clue.

Victoria: Billy, hi, it’s me. Um, listen, I need the address to that storage facility that you used to use. You– you know, you remember the one where katie used to always play with the keys? Can– yes. Can you text that to me? Okay, thank you. I’ll– I’ll explain later. Okay. Oh, I got it.

Cole: We’re headed there now.

Victor: But listen, be careful. I’ll send backup, all right? Well, I think we may be getting somewhere. It seems that victoria and cole have found a set of keys. Keys to a storage unit. Where perhaps jordan is holding claire hostage.

Michael: Well, hang on. That’s– that’s a lot of assumptions. Uh, jordan rented that motel room under an assumed name. And it was rented to a couple before her. Uh, it could be their keys.

Victor: But they found those keys inside a doll, a similar doll that jordan had at her lake house.

Michael: Okay. So, more likely, it’s connected to her. But it still could be a trap or a misdirect.

Victor: Wait here. I’ll find out.

Michael: Well, where are you going? Victor? Victor!

Traci: I was so worried about ashley while we were in paris. She shared with you the, um, argument she had with her ex-husband at the cafe?

Alan: With tucker, yes, his explosion. And then the visit you two made there. At first, she thought the staff was paid off to back up his version of the story.

Traci: Yeah, that was the theory. Obviously, it turned out to be wrong. And then she had to accept that she misremembered the whole argument. That she exaggerated his anger and the violence.

Alan: Yeah, she came to see me that visit. And obviously, it upset her quite a bit, realizing that what she recalled and reality were two different things.

Traci: Yeah, it’s a lot to navigate.

Alan: Yeah.

Traci: Honestly, I– I thought once she got home and accepted that, and that things were over with tucker, she would be able to just go on with her life. But that’s when things got very worrisome.

Alan: In what way?

Traci: My sister has been having mood swings.

Alan: Uh, highs and lows, or?

Traci: No, um, more like personality shifts. For example, uh, she will be extremely confident.

Alan: Well, that’s ashley.

[ Both laugh ]

Traci: Yeah. So, take that ashley to the nth degree. And at the next moment, she’ll be almost childlike. And then last night, we got a new one. Uh, uh, tequila shots and live it up. But the most troubling is when she is our ashley. She’s so fragile. And she’s confided in me that she’s having blackouts.

Alan: Wait, from alcohol?

Traci: I don’t think so. The– the time I know about for sure, she insists she had nothing to drink.

Alan: Blackouts. What else does she say about the blackouts?

[ Traci sighs ]

Traci: Well, she sort of describes them as big chunks of time that are just missing, like she’ll wake up somewhere and not know where she is or how she got there. The family is really worried.

Alan: Well, that’s an understandable reaction.

Traci: Yeah. My brother billy suggests that maybe she’s experiencing splintering of her personality, you know, triggered by the trauma of what happened with tucker.

Alan: Well, that is a serious diagnosis. Is billy a psychiatrist?

Traci: No, but… he’s experienced something similar himself.

Alan: Oh.

Traci: He says he can recognize the signs. Now, we’ve tried to get her to see a doctor, and she agrees. And at the last minute, she changes her mind.

Alan: Hm. Well, I’m– I’m glad you reached out to me. And I’ve known ashley a very long time and in the past, she has confided in me that she has a history of psychosis. So maybe it was triggered somehow, brought to a new level.

Diane: Kill ’em with kindness, huh?

Ashley: Words to live by.

Diane: I hope you don’t feel the need to be that way with me.

Ashley: Oh, diane, I’ve never felt the need to be anyone but myself with you.

Diane: Well, good. Then, maybe you’ll be straight with me and tell me how you’re really feeling.

Ashley: Oh, well… I’m tired of all the questions and the overwhelming concern and the sad looks from jack and tracy.

Diane: Well, that’s because they care about you.

Ashley: Yeah, it’s so suffocating. Makes me want to go elsewhere for my coffee.

Diane: All right, to be fair, you admitted to all of us that you didn’t know what was going on with you. You seemed genuinely lost, frightened, desperate for answers. No, really. And then you ran from that doctor’s appointment that traci and sharon worked so hard to make for you. Why did you do that? Were you afraid of what the doctor might find out?

Victor: Hello. How was your night?

Jordan: The accommodations stink. The food is worse.

Victor: You know, that’s the review I was aspiring to.

[ Jordan laughs ] So… where’s my granddaughter?

Jordan: Okay. Okay. You win. I prefer a chteau in france. Same deal as before. My freedom, a new life, and you get claire’s location.

Victor: You have… tendencies to be delusional, don’t you? There’ll be no deal. You know why? We know where claire is. We found the keys to the storage room. Rather sloppy on your part.

Jordan: I don’t know what you’re talking about.

Victor: You know exactly what I’m talking about. When my doctor gave me breztri for my copd Happy mother’s day! Some things never change. Like a mother’s love. Get something as timeless as a mother’s love at harryanddavid.Com. Life is a gift. Share more.

Traci: Jack and I didn’t know what else to do. And then I thought of you and your friendship. And I was hoping that you could talk to her, urge her to get treatment.

Alan: Well, of course, I’m happy to find out more about what’s going on with her, but I– I can’t treat her. I retired and my american license expired when I moved to france 10 years ago, so.

Traci: Yeah, I didn’t expect that you would be her doctor. I was just hoping you could get her past whatever is stopping her from getting help.

Alan: I certainly will do my best. We’ve been friends a long time. I care very much about ashley.

Traci: Oh, thank you. The family appreciates any help. And I just want my sister back.

Alan: Ah, of course. And does she know I’m here?

Traci: Yes, yes. I t– I told her that I had reached out to you. And honestly, I was worried she might think I overstepped.

Alan: Well, understandable, knowing ashley.

Traci: Yes, but she was really good with it. Um, I think she prefers the idea of talking to you over a doctor she’s never met before. So, I don’t think you’ll get any resistance unless…

[ Traci sighs ] Honestly, my sister’s moods can change on a dime.

Ashley: Don’t you have better things to do than harp on me about decisions I’ve made for my own well-being?

Diane: I’m not harping about anything. I’m just asking you.

Ashley: Then, what are you doing here? I mean, why are you fetching brownies for your grandson?

Diane: Ashley, I’m not looking for a fight.

Ashley: You are the co-ceo of jabot cosmetics. By the way, you never thanked me for letting you slide on in there without any kind of a fuss. Are you looking to get out, maybe? Because I could try to help you get fired if that’s what you really want.

Diane: I’m trying to be nice. If you don’t want my help, fine. But I can’t butt out completely. You see, I care about jack, and jack’s worried about you. So, that makes you my concern as well.

Ashley: Oh.

Jordan: Do you really think that I’d be so stupid to leave a set of keys lying around? [ Chuckles ] You’d better make a deal with me right now if you ever want to see your precious granddaughter alive again.

Victor: You should have taken my deal. You’d be lounging right now in some chteau in the south of france. Instead, you’re going to… die slowly… in this… luxurious place.

Jordan: You’re wrong, victor. You still need me.

Victor: I have you. No one knows where the hell you are. I’m the only one. And this time, I promise you… there’s no way out.

Jordan: You won’t find claire! You’ll be back! You’ll be back begging me to help! Victor!

Victoria: Oh, this is it. Number 23.

Cole: Hang on, hang on.

Victoria: Don’t worry.

Cole: I gotta check– I gotta check for signs of a trap. Here.

Victoria: It’s so quiet. What are you looking for?

Cole: There could be a wire. A trigger. Trigger for something here. Anything that looks suspicious. Okay. All right. It looks okay.

Victoria: Hold on. Wait, wait, wait. I’m– I’m scared… of what we might find.

Cole: Listen, I am, too. But we can’t wait any longer on this.

Victoria: Okay.

Cole: All right, listen. Maybe– maybe you just– you should step back, just in case, okay? Just… claire?

Victoria: Claire? Claire, are you in there? It’s mom and dad!

If you’re taking

an antidepressant,

Victoria: Claire? Sweetheart?

Cole: Okay, we gotta go in. Do you have the flashlight?

Victoria: Yeah. It’s here.

Claire: Here. Help me.

Victoria: Oh, my god!

Cole: Claire!

Victoria: Claire!

Ashley: Oh, please, diane. Just back the truck up. Drop the third degree, counselor. When you’ve all decided how I’m supposed to behave, and when I don’t behave that way, you get your shorts in a twist. I’m not some ice queen. I’m a red-blooded woman who had her heart broken. Does that mean I have to have professional help?

Diane: You asked for it yourself the other night. I was there.

Ashley: The more I thought about it, the more I realized it’s just heartbreak. I’ve gotten through it before, and I will get through it now.

Diane: Well, it doesn’t mean you don’t need professional help to do so.

Ashley: I will find my balance if it will get you all off of my back. I’ll try very hard not to be too extra. Although, I do find it very interesting that all of you people can live your lives however you want, messy as they are, without any kind of intervention. Well, I plan on doing the same. I’m gonna have some fun. So, you can either join my party or get out of my way.

[ Phone ringing ] Oh. Tell me something good.

Traci: Ashley, I’m here at the house with your friend, alan. He’s arrived from paris. He’s eager to see you.

Ashley: Oh, that is the best news I’ve had in ages. Tell him I can’t wait to see him. Gotta run.

Diane: What’s the rush?

Ashley: Well, finally, somebody in this town that I can have some fun with. I gotta go carpe some diem.

Diane: Ah, enjoy.

Ashley: Thanks. Oh, diane. Thank you so much for your concern. I mean, if it’s sincere.

Diane: And why wouldn’t it be?

Ashley: Oh, honey. Because you’re you. Ta.

Michael: Where the hell did you go?

Victor: To talk to my security team.

Michael: Well, why not do that with me?

Victor: Do I need my lawyer to talk to my damn security team?

Michael: But, victor, you need to find out–

Victor: Will you stop asking questions, for heaven’s sake? I think I found the answer. Seemingly, that jordan woman used the same alias… renting a hotel room as she did when she rented that storage unit.

Michael: So, you think cole and victoria are correct, that this is the place that jordan stashed claire?

Victor: Yeah, I’m certain of it.

Michael: But it still could be a trap.

Victor: I know how her mind works.

Michael: All right, then we need to get a security team down there. Victoria and cole shouldn’t face this by themselves.

Victor: They’re already on their way. I just hope in time to rescue claire.

Victoria: Oh, my god.

Cole: Claire.

Victoria: Cole, she’s in there, she’s in there. Help me!

Claire: Please get her off. Please, dad, get her off.

Victoria: Get her off!

Cole: Okay. Oh, my gosh.

Victoria: She’s not breathing.

Cole: Come here.

Claire: I can’t– I can’t– I can’T. [ Sobs ]

Victoria: Be careful. Please be careful. Come on, I got you.

[ Claire sobbing ]

Cole: Oh.

Victoria: Come here, I got you. You’re okay now.

Cole: You’re okay, baby.

Victoria: We got you.

Cole: You’re okay now.

Victoria: We’re gonna take you home. Shh, it’s okay.

[ Claire sobs ] No, it’s okay. I’ve got you. This skinny pop is so delicious.

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Victor: Nikki, call me back, please. Third time I’ve left a message for her. She has not called back. It’s not like her.

[ Phone rings ] Yes, darling?

Victoria: We found her, daddy.

Victor: You did?

Victoria: She’s alive. She’s really shaken up, but she’s okay.

Victor: That makes me very happy, sweetheart. Are the police there? Is my team there?

Victoria: No, no, not yet. Uh, but cole will talk to them. I need to get claire some food. Daddy, I really don’t think she’s up to answering any questions right now, no matter what the police want. Cole will handle that, okay?

Victor: You bring claire home as soon as you can. All right? This makes me so happy.

[ Michael laughs ] Wow.

[ Ashley gasps ]

Alan: Ashley!

Ashley: It’s true! You’re really here.

Alan: In the flesh.

Ashley: Oh, I’m so happy to see you.

Alan: Oh, me too. You look wonderful.

Ashley: Did you follow me? Honestly, they are keeping me on such a short leash these days.

Diane: I said I was picking up brownies for harrison. If I’d have known you were coming back here, I would have had you deliver them yourself. Ah, I’m diane, traci and ashley’s sister-in-law. I’m jack’s wife.

Alan: Alan laurent, nice to meet you.

Diane: Nice to meet you. Are you two old friends?

Ashley: No, diane, that’s not going to happen. Alan flew all the way from paris to see me and I’m going to take you out to lunch. Please tell me you’re hungry.

Alan: I am famished.

Ashley: Oh, let’s get out of here. Bye-bye.

Diane: Bye.

Ashley: Bye-bye. I’ve got this great place, you’re gonna love it.

Diane: And that is?

Traci: Ashley’s psychologist friend from paris. I had hoped that he would be able to talk to her one-on-one, but she seems pretty amped up.

Diane: Ah, yeah, I just had a little run-in with her at crimson lights.

Traci: Do you mean a confrontation?

Diane: No, no, not exactly, but I– I think I met one of her alters. She was feisty, but if I’m being honest, a little fun.

Traci: Alters? Are you making a joke? I thought you were trying to help.

Diane: I am. Gosh, I’ve been nothing but supportive, and I have taken my fair share of hits from ashley even before these personality swings of hers.

Traci: Well, you’re being awfully flip about something that is dead serious. It’s almost like you’re enjoying seeing her like this.

Diane: Traci, do you really think that of me?

[ Diane scoffs ] W– when will this family stop punishing me for my past and stop assuming the worst about me? Do I really need to still prove that I’m being sincere?

Traci: Apparently, you do.

Victoria: All right, here you are. Listen, why don’t I make some tea? And– and you can go upstairs and take a hot shower.

Victor: Sweetheart.

Victoria: I imagine you want to get some sleep.

Victor: My goodness, come here. Come here. Tell us what happened.

Victoria: Daddy, she really hasn’t said very much. She’s– she’s shaken up.

Cole: Yeah, we probably should let her get some rest first.

Victoria: Yeah.

Claire: It’s okay. Now, that I’m here, safe with all of you, I… I think I can talk about it. I want to. I want– I want to get it out.

Victor: Okay. Then, why don’t you do that? Sit down, let’s do it, okay?

Claire: After your anniversary party, I went to return harrison’s good luck bunny. He’d shown it to me earlier and… I found it at the lounge. Jordan must have followed me somehow. Gotten into the abbott house. I was upstairs. Harrison had asked me to read him a story. And then, he went to the bathroom and… jordan appeared out of nowhere. She… she chloroformed me.

Victoria: That must have been so terrifying.

Claire: The next thing I knew, I… I was being dragged into that storage unit. I knew if jordan had her way, that was going to be my only chance to escape, so… I fought back hard. I almost got away. But then… that woman collapsed on top of me. I think she must have had a heart attack from all the exertion. I was pinned down. I couldn’t get her off of me. I was trapped underneath her dead weight.

Cole: What, you– you were trapped like that all that time?

Claire: I really thought I was going to die there, too.

[ Claire sniffles ] If you’re one of the millions of people with diabetes

Alan: Ah, thank you.

Ashley: So–

Abby: Mom!

Ashley: Hi!

Abby: Hi. I love this outfit.

Ashley: Thank you.

Abby: Wow, it’s good to see you.

Ashley: You, too. This is alan, my friend from paris. And this is my daughter, abby. She owns this fine establishment.

Alan: Nice to meet you.

Abby: Nice to meet you, all the way from paris. I’m sure you two have a lot to catch up on, so I won’t interrupt. But, um, I’ll send over all your favorites.

Ashley: Perfect.

Abby: Enjoy.

Ashley: We will. So, tell me. How is paris faring without me?

Alan: Well, the city of lights is a bit dimmer.

Ashley: Oh. [ Laughs ] What about you? Are you surviving?

Alan: Oh, I’m managing to get through retirement. Tackling all those home projects I’ve been putting off for years. Getting through that pile of books that’s been haunting me.

Ashley: Yeah.

Alan: How about you? Last time we saw each other in paris, you were, uh… on edge. Upset about your breakup with tucker.

Ashley: I put all that behind me. I’m a new woman, can’t you tell?

Alan: You do seem happier.

Ashley: Mm-hmm.

Alan: But I have known you a long time, and you don’t have to pretend with me.

Ashley: Oh, honey.

Abby: Well, this is a new vintage that we’re trying here. I’m sure being from france, you’re a champagne connoisseur.

Ashley: Oh, listen, they drink it like water over there. And you know what? It is the best remedy for jet lag, right?

Alan: Yes. Well, then let’s have some.

Ashley: Okay.

Alan: Mm. It’s very good.

Abby: Hm. Mom, what do you think?

Ashley: Mm. I have never met a glass of bubbles I didn’t like.

Abby: Well, great. Uh, then, it’s on the house.

Ashley: Oh, that’s so sweet of you.

Alan: Oh. Thank you. Would you care to join us?

Abby: You know, actually, um, I’m covering for my manager. So, rain check?

Ashley: Okay, next time.

Abby: Yeah. Bye.

Ashley: Yeah. So… where were we?

Alan: I believe you were telling me how you were doing.

Ashley: Mm. No, I think I was trying to evade that question, actually.

Alan: You’ve been doing a very good job of that so far.

Ashley: Well, we both know that traci and jack flew you here to analyze me, right? They want you to probe my deepest, innermost feelings and thoughts. Is that what you want to do, alan?

[ Michael smooches ]

Lauren: Oh, my goodness. I didn’t think you’d be able to join me. I thought you’d be all tied up with the search. But in the event you were going to show up, look what I ordered you.

Michael: Oh, bless you. Bless you.

Lauren: Oh.

Michael: Good news, finally. They found claire. Alive.

Lauren: Oh. Thank god. Oh, nikki’s going to be so relieved. Jordan dead, claire found. Maybe this nightmare can finally be over.

Michael: Well…

Lauren: And you must be relieved as well.

Michael: Here’s hoping that we’re even more relieved once we get news from los angeles that sheila is indeed very dead.

Lauren: Is that what has you so unsettled? That you’re hoping, like I am, that it really was sheila in the morgue?

Michael: That and, um… I think victor is keeping something from me.

[ Lauren laughs ]

Lauren: Well, of course victor is keeping something from you. That’s how he operates. He always keeps a little detail to himself.

Michael: True. But this time, I don’t think it’s a little detail. I’m afraid it’S… it’s about jordan. About her death.

Lauren: You said that she fell into a river from a height that no one could survive.

Michael: Yeah, that’s what victor told me. But I haven’t been able to confirm it.

Lauren: Oh, you think he’s lying about that?

Michael: Just a sense I have. But I’ve known that man a long time.

Claire: But I knew I had to stop. I couldn’t let myself think about what might happen being trapped there like that. So, I… I imagined being free. Back out in the world. Being here. With you. Being safe in my room. And I got angry. Thinking about jordan. Everything she’s done to me. To all of you. That anger gave me the strength to maneuver myself so that I could get the phone out of that woman’s pocket and I could call you. But then the phone died and I… had to try not to panic all over again.

Victoria: The call was garbled. I– I couldn’t hear anything but a faint voice. I couldn’t make out what you were saying. Just one word. Mom.

Cole: Your mother. She knew it was you. She insisted that we go to that motel room where they found harrison. And even though the police said they had searched it, she knew there had to be a clue. There had to be something there that was going to tell us where you were.

Claire: Motel? Oh, my god, she took harrison too? Is he okay?

Victoria: He’s okay. He’s safe.

[ Claire exhales sharply ]

Claire: How did you find me?

Victoria: There was a doll in the room and…

Cole: It was like the ones that my mother used to collect.

Victoria: Jordan had hidden a set of keys in the back of the doll. And they looked like the ones that billy had from that same storage facility.

Cole: We took a gamble. You know the rest.

Claire: Harrison’s okay? You promise? Can I see him?

Victoria: He’s safe, I promise you. I don’t think that kyle and summer are going to let him out of their sight anytime soon, but he’s safe.

Claire: He must have been so scared. He must still be so scared. That… that trauma. Where is she? Where’s jordan? Did they arrest her? We can’t ever let her hurt that sweet boy ever again.

Victor: The bitch is dead.

If you have chronic

kidney disease you can reduce

Ashley: In spite of the fact that none of my siblings actually has a medical degree, they’ve decided that something’s wrong with me. And that’s why you’re here. They want you to figure out what that is.

Alan: Yeah. I’m aware of the reasons your family has very suddenly offered me a first class ticket here to genoa city. And I believe you are too.

Ashley: Mm-hmm. So, you mean to tell me that the only reason you’re here is on a professional level?

Alan: Well, look, of course I, um, want to know how you’re doing. Last time I saw you, you were struggling and that concerns me. But, as I told traci, I’m retired, I no longer have a license to practice in the united states, and I would never treat a friend.

Ashley: Hm. We are good friends, aren’t we?

Alan: Yes. I took their offer so I could be with one of my favorite people. Your last trip to paris was very brief and, well, I wanted to see the place you called home. It always brings you back. But, if you don’t want me here, it is– it is an open ticket. I can– I can go back any time.

Ashley: Oh, no, I want you here. I really want you here. And of course, I’m thrilled to show you around town, but I just have to let you in on a tiny little secret. The rumors about my, uh, mental breakdown? Highly exaggerated.

Alan: Well, I’m glad to hear that.

Ashley: Oh, of course. Oh, my sweetie, you are the answer to my prayers. The perfect solution for ashley. This visit will not be clinical at all. Time for some joie de vivre.

Lauren: Well, if sheila is lurking in the shadows, she better not come anywhere near me or she’s going to be sorry.

Michael: Ooh, my warrior wife.

Lauren: Well, luckily I have other things to focus on. I’m very busy at work. This morning, I filled in for nikki on a big meeting. I mean, she just felt like it was too much coming into the office today, which is completely understandable given everything that’s been going on. She was very confident that you and victor would find claire, but it was just, you know, waiting on that news was having her worried sick.

Michael: What? She didn’t show up at the office, where’d she go?

Lauren: She went home. Why?

Michael: Just now?

Lauren: Hours ago.

Michael: I’ve been at the ranch with victor all morning. She wasn’t there and victor’s been trying to reach her.

Lauren: Nikki, it’s lauren. Call me as soon as you can.

Michael: Straight to voicemail?

Lauren: Yes.

Michael: That’s what victor was getting.

Lauren: Jack, hi, it’s lauren. Have you seen nikki? I– I’m sure it’s nothing to worry about. Call me when you can.

Claire: The fact that she kidnapped harrison, an innocent child, just proves she was beyond redemption.

Victor: Mm-hmm.

Claire: I’m glad she’s dead. I’m grateful. For the sake of everyone that she’s hurt, who just had to live in fear of her.

Victoria: That would be all of us. But mostly you.

Claire: Is it true? Am I really finally free of her?

Victor: I promise you, she’ll never hurt anyone again.

[ Drew and nina moaning ] Why — I can’t believe we did this again! What the hell is wrong with us?! Ahh. You may regret it now, but, uh… you were enjoying yourself.

[ Laughs ] And… I’m finding a few less things to hate about you than I was an hour ago. Well, the sex was… mutually consensual. But you know what? I certainly regret that you are such a horrible, vengeful person. Well, if it helps, think about sending me to prison as foreplay. Hilarious. Look. I am done working for the day, really would like to get out of here, so do you mind letting me know how long you plan to lecture me about how awful a person I am before you kind of straighten up your clothes and, uh, get out of here?

[ Knock on door ]

[ Knock on door ] Ms. Ramirez. Ah. Please. No, no. Call me natalia. I’m glad to find you here by yourself. And why is that? Well, I have some questions about deception, and you seem like you are the only serious person who’s involved in running the company. That’s just not true. Isn’t it, though? Ms. Coe seems pretty neurotic, and there’s that crazy attorney who redrafted allie’s contract. I don’t — okay. Look. Lucy is lucy, and where scott might be eccentric, he’s also very competent. You have yet to meet our majority shareholder, tracy quartermaine, who’s a force of nature. I might call her

too serious. Then, of course, there’s brook lynn. Yeah. Another quartermaine. Okay. Olivia: Ahh! It’s the moment of truth. Look at this. How does it look? Well, remember what I said. I am not gonna be a pushover. I’m gonna tell you what I really think. Okay? Could’ve jazzed up the presentation a little bit, but it smells very good. Doesn’t look like anything we’ve had before. Well, maybe sasha is trying to broaden our horizons, huh? What about that?

[ Door opens ] Hey, you. Hey, hey. Wiley!

[ Laughs ] I just got back from work. Hi, wiley! And melanie said that you wanted wiley and me to give you our opinions on something. -Hmm! -What’s that?! It’s a tetrazzini. Is it an animal or is it a vegetable? It’s just another way of cooking chicken, sweetheart, and you like chicken, right? Yeah. Well, then… you’re gonna love what sasha made. Well, I made two casseroles, so there’s plenty for everyone. Enjoy.

[ Exhales sharply ]

[ Rock music playing ] Thank you. Dex heller. Jason morgan. I know who you are. What do you want? It’s about sonny.

Tell sonny that I don’t want any trouble, but I did apply to the police academy, and if I get in, i am gonna be a cop. Sonny didn’t send me. I’m here because of josslyn. She’s afraid sonny might have you killed. And I promised her I would not let that happen. No offense, but how are you gonna stop it? I’ll figure it out. Thanks, but no thanks. If I can protect myself. I can respect that. But I’m not doing it for you. I’m doing it for josslyn. And for sonny. I think you’ve got your motives crossed. Sonny’s the one who wants me dead. Sonny knows better than to target a cop. I mean, he should. He did. He should’ve known better than to go after cyrus renault, but he still sent me to kill him.

[ Indistinct conversations ] Could I — can I have a menu? Thank you. Of all the gin joints in all the world. Hello, valentin. Hello, anna. Can I buy you a glass of wine? Sure. That’d be lovely. Thank you. What’s up? Pouilly-fuissé. Yeah? Mmm. Pretty nice. Yeah. Um, can I get one of those, please? Thank you. So, how you been? Busy. Good. It agrees with you. Oh. You think? Thank you. Yeah, you’re engaged. You’re, uh, energized. As opposed to what? Have I been slouching around like a sloth all these years and didn’t know it? No, no. You’re always beautiful. You’re also driven to be first-class in everything that you do. In fact, if you were to ever hang up your dancing shoes, give over your badge, and try your luck as a tree surgeon, I’m sure you’d be brilliant at it. Well, that’s where you’re wrong. You know. I have a black thumb. I can’t tell you how many plants robin bought me that ended up in the dustbin. Well, as luck would have it, we don’t have to find out, ’cause it turns out that being police commissioner of port charles suits you. I happen to think it suits me, too. That’s probably the cleaning staff. They must have moved to another office. I’ll make sure that they don’t come back. Hey, it’s drew cain. Can you tell housekeeping I’m working late and I don’t need my office cleaned tonight? Thank you. Great. Crisis averted. Oh, my god. I am so late! I am so late! Um… yes! Madison! I got held up. Please tell congressman mcconkey that I am sorry and I’ll be right there. Oh, it’s, uh — no, it’s totally fine that he had to reschedule. It’s fine. Oh, but please tell the congressman that I know how busy he is and I’m more than happy to come to him when we reschedule. Thank you so much, madison. Okay, I almost missed a very important meeting because of…this. So let’s just not have this be a habit. I wouldn’t call twice a habit. No, it’s more like a mistake followed by a bigger mistake. I want to focus on what I just overheard. Representative mcconkey? Seems like an odd fit for crimson. What was that about? Larry mcconkey is a family friend. He was in the same class as my father, and he reached out to me because he has A… exclusive announcement that he wants to reveal in a interview. And if it isn’t suitable for crimson, I can always run it in the invader. Well, I want to go with you when you meet with him. Mcconkey’s a major player in the house, and if he reached out to aurora — no, he reached out to me. Well, I want to take advantage of this opportunity and I’d like to make his acquaintance. And who exactly would I say you are? My chauffeur? Just tell him I’m the guy you sent to prison and whose clothes you like to rip off every once in a while. Taste this. Oh. What is it? Just — just tell me what you think. Okay.

[ Mutters ] It’s great. You sure? Y-you’re not just saying that? No, t-this is great. Sasha, what’s going on here? Oh, I’m auditioning to be the quartermaines’ cook, and I made a tetrazzini, which I am now really regretting. I mean, why did i pick something that olivia can probably make in her sleep? Wait. Hold on. You might work here, too? Sasha, this is great. Why am I just hearing about this now? Well, it just came about this afternoon. The quartermaines need a cook, and olivia really likes that shepherd pie that I made, so… mm-hmm. …She wants to hire me, but she wanted me to audition first by cooking something tonight. I-I would’ve really liked some time to practice the dish, but the job comes with room and board, so I couldn’t say no. Wait. So you might live here, too? Yeah. I really hope that it works out because I’m supposed to be out of my apartment by the end of the month, and the rental market is really insane right now. Besides… I would really like the job. But I-I don’t want to infringe o-on your thing. Wait. Wha– what? Would you feel crowded if I were living here, too?

I know we only just met, but I can’t imagine my life without you.

[Dog whimper] () Alright. Everybody stop stalling and eat it. Okay, boys, I will take this one for the team and be the guinea pig. That’s actually pretty good. Yeah? Yeah. Try it yourself. Okay. Is it spaghetti or is it a casserole? Oh, it’s both, actually. What’s a casserole? Casserole. Spelled c-a-s-s-e-r-o-l-E. But what is it? I dunno. Okay. Enough! Enough. We’re gonna use the one-bite rule. Everyone is gonna take one bite. If you don’t like it, you can eat a banana and cheese and crackers, but we are all gonna try it, okay? I will join you. Mm. You weren’t kidding. This is good. Yeah. Right? Who knew sasha was so talented? Oh. What do you think, you guys? You like it? I like it! If I eat it all, can I still have a banana?

[ Laughter ] Yeah, yeah. Sure thing, bud. What about you? My little picky eater. You like it? Yeah! This is so much better than your spaghetti.

[ Coughs ] Can I have it tomorrow night, too? Maxie: This is the disruptor nourishing moisturizer. It’s part of our new deceptive skincare line. Oh, I really like the scent. And the texture is nice, too. But does it work? Because I’m not gonna have allie hawking some bogus cream. If she’s gonna be identified with a product, it’s got to really give good results. Of course, it works. All of our products are rigorously tested. Everything we make does what we say it will. The most important thing deception has is our customers’ trust — their belief in our brand and in us. Well, you’re clearly a very effective marketer. But, look, what I really want to talk about is, what does alison’s music manager exactly do here at deception? Um, okay. Brook lynn has had several important roles at deception over the last few years. That just makes me wonder why none of the positions held her interest for very long. No, no, no. That’s not how I would describe it. Well, I understand that brook lynn had her own brief singing career for a while. When she got tired of that, she moved on to music management because her mom did it. With all due respect, that is not very fair to brook lynn. She didn’t have any choice but to give up singing. It’s not what she wanted. And while, yes, she was introduced to the music industry by her mother and her dad, actually, she genuinely loves it, and she believes in and is very serious about the artists she represents. So, then, when did she become really serious about face creams? Because it just seems to me that alison is putting her career in — in the hands of this wealthy dilettante who really doesn’t know what she wants to do with her life, so she tries a little bit of this and a little bit of that and basically changes careers like some people change hairstyles. I know you went to work for sonny because michael hired you. He wanted you to get evidence against sonny, and you did. You still have it? No. If I did, I’d have given it to commissioner devane. What was it? Ask michael. Dex… I told josslyn I’m not gonna let sonny kill you. That means I’m not gonna kill you, either. I learned a lot from sonny. He’s smart. He’s cautious. He understood that there’s certain risks not worth taking. He doesn’t think that way anymore. No, he doesn’T. So I need to know how sonny got in over his head, starting with his deal with pikeman. I like sitting here with you. It’s comfortable. It’s familiar. Well, we’ve known each other a long time. I thought about you a lot while I was out of the country. You were out of the country? What, you were doing business abroad? No. I was taking charlotte back to boarding school in switzerland. She went back? Willingly? It was her idea. I mean, despite the fact that it was victor who took her there in the first place, she likes it. She has friends there and equestrian events. And she wanted to get out of port charles ’cause it hasn’t been very good for her. I don’t need to tell you that. No. I’m aware of the things that happened to her lately and my part in that. I’ll always regret that night. But I am very grateful that she felt well enough to go back to switzerland and — I mean, if that’s what she wants. Me too. I miss her. Of course you do. I miss you, too. I miss having you in my life. And I know that wasn’t possible while charlotte was in town, but she’s — she’s away at boarding school now. Is it crazy to think that maybe we can see each other again?

I’m not making any promises, but I will think about introducing you to congressman mcconkey — on one condition. And that would be? That we both agree that… this can never happen again. That’s fine with me. Already forgot about it.

[ Knock on door ] I’ve already forgotten about it, too. I thought I told them to — willow: Drew? Are you in there? It’s willow!

[ Objects shuffling ]

[ Door opens ] Willow! Hey! I-I thought I heard somebody knocking. Come on in. Willow! [ Chuckles ] So sorry. We didn’t — we didn’t hear you. Nina, did you, uh — did you lock the door? Eh– I-if I did, I didn’t mean to.

[ Clears throat ] The, uh — the rep was a suit named hume. Sonny must have met with him three or four times. Was there anybody else? Valentin cassadine. He’s the one who set up the initial meeting, and then when sonny wanted to back out, valentin came back. So why did sonny change his mind about working with pikeman? He thought it was too risky. The first shipment that they had us move was this, uh — this plastic explosive. It’s a classified weapon. It’s supposed to be for special forces. It’s not supposed to be for sale. It’s a major nsa violation. But if sonny had been busted, it would have been 20 years minimum. And you got a recording of it? I gave it to michael like we agreed. He decided not to use it. Did you keep a copy for yourself for insurance? No, I thought it would be safer to not have anything to tie me to the video. Alright. So what — so what about cassadine? Did he do anything else besides set up the meeting? Yeah. Yeah, he met with hume the same day that someone tried to take sonny out at the metro court. How do you know that? I was out for a run. I saw hume get out of a car at the cosmopolitan hotel with cassadine. Are you sure… that this was the same day somebody shot at sonny? Positive. There’s a date stamp on the picture. You got that picture? You caught me off guard there. Really? Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, really. I thought that… …that we agreed that there was just too much hurt and damage, you know, and that that door was just permanently closed. Anna, I’m rattling around in that huge house all by myself. A house that I bought for you and me to share. And I miss you. Will you let me take you out to dinner? Maybe we can move beyond the past? I’m gonna have to think about that before I can give you an answer if that’S… well, you’re willing to think about it. That’s a good start. Not making any promises, though. Mm-hmm. I mean, my feelings for you didn’t just… disappear overnight. You know, it’s really difficult for us to go separate ways after everything we had. But I’m just not sure if I’M… ready to go down that path again, you know, ’cause maybe t-there’s just more heartbreak. I think there’s only one way to find out.

[ Cellphone chimes ] Saved by the bell! Yeah.

[ Chuckles ] Who do I have to thank for that? Go. Duty calls, yeah. Keep poor charles safe. I’ll call you. Sure.

Pursue it. Okay. Look. I’m happy todiscuss deception with you, but if you’re here to enlist my help to undermine brook lynn’s role as blaze’s music manager, you’re barking up the wrong tree. Brook lynn is my best friend. She’s also a consummate professional. She understands all aspects of the music industry, creative, logistical, financial. Sure, brook lynn’s mom may have shown her the ropes when it comes to the music industry, but brook lynn’s been doing it on her own ever since. Oh, come on.

[ Chuckles ] To say that brook lynn quartermaine has been doing it on our own, that’s actually laughable because I believe that the term for it is “nepo baby” — when somebody’s parents and grandparents — I mean, in this case, brook lynn’s entire family — paved the way for her. And the phrase “did it on her own” should be saved for people like alison who actually didn’t know anybody in the music industry and still made it as a star. This is not a competition. They can both be good at what they do. Well, that remains to be seen. I’ m sorry. I tried knockinga little while ago, but you must not have heard me. Um, I-I tried to leave a message with the front desk, but they said you were still in here working, so I came back. I can see you’re busy, though, so, um, we could totally talk another time. Oh, no. Stay, stay. Willow. No, we just, um — we finished, um, going over the crimson photo budget, and drew was very generous and gave me everything I wanted. But now we are finished. So I will leave you two alone.

[ Chuckles ] Okay. Nina: Bye. Nina. Wait. Is there something? Do you need something? Oh, no. It’s just, um… I was kind of thrown when I saw you and drew in here together. Well, we work together.

Crimson wouldn’t run very well if we don’t talk. No. Right. Of course. I-I — I guess I meant “thrown” in a good way. If drew can still sit across from you and calmly discuss normal things like a photo budget after you sent him to prison, then… he must be a pretty forgiving person. Yes. He certainly is. And if the two of you can find a way to get along, then it makes me wonder if I haven’t been too harsh, holding on so tightly to my grievances, so… maybe it’s time I let my anger at you go, too. Thank you for saying that. I’m gonna go.

[ Chuckles ] Well, that was very unexpected.

[ Chuckles ] Yeah. Definitely not what I was thinking was going to happen when I came to see you tonight. How did it feel to reach out to nina like that? Surprisingly okay. And I have you to thank — for being the bigger person and showing me the way. Sasha — should I just go back to the house? I was trying to give them some space, but maybe michael and olivia are just trying to think of the best way to turn me down nicely. Has anyone ever told you that you’re really cute when you’re nervous? Which you don’t have to be. Because, number one, what you made is delicious. Number two, no, I don’t feel crowded by you. In fact, I thought it was the other way around. And, number three, you’ll never be without a place to stay. If it comes down to it, you can live up in my room, and I’ll sleep down here with the beasts, where I belong. Please don’t misunderstand me. I-I hate being this mistrustful and — and suspicious. But I got a terrible wake-up call with alison’s first manager, linc. He exploited her, he abused her, and I had no idea what was even going on. What happened with linc was horrible. And you have every right to be worried about blaze. But brook lynn — she’s above-board, and she would never do anything to hurt your daughter. Are you — are you a mom? Yes, I have a son and two daughters. Okay. Good. Then you understand why I’m asking so many questions. I just — I want to protect my daughter, and I don’t want her represented by someone who just thinks that music is some, you know, fun break from tennis on tuesdays or something sweet and fun to do while she’s not planning her wedding. Okay, that’s not how brook lynn thinks at all. Let’s face it. Alison’s association with brook lynn is the only reason she’s the face of deception because my daughter’s bigger dreams have nothing to do with face cream. I’ve known brook lynn for a long time. And I’ve always thought that, for a quartermaine, she’s pretty well-adjusted, realistic, and hardworking. Blaze seems to think so, too, which makes me wonder. All these big dreams that you keep talking about? Are they your daughters or are they yours? So easy to, uh — to blame the mother, isn’t it? You’ll find that out when your kids get older. Just something to think about. Have a nice day. It was one thing when my mom got alzheimer’s, but then we started noticing things that seemed…off. She developed agitation that may happen with dementia due to alzheimer’s disease. Sometimes she’d fidget with her fingers, get suddenly overwhelmed, and even throw things. And that was just never her. So we asked her doctor what else we could do.

Wow. [ Chuckles ] Is that all it took? Self-identifying as a beast? Michael: What’s going on here? Oh, just, uh, horsin’ around. Ohh. Didn’t expect to see you two together. Guess it makes sense that you should meet. So this is who you were texting? I don’t know what’s going on here, but it’s definitely above my pay grade. Not that I have a pay grade yet. Oh. Actually… you do.

[ Envelope opening ] Welcome to the police academy… new recruit heller. Thank you, commissioner. I know you played a big role in this. No. Not as big as you might think. You earned your spot. Guess I’ll be taking you up on that offer after all. Just promise me you’ll be good to josslyn. That’s a promise I will gladly keep if I get the chance. Thank you again, commissioner. Congratulations. Did you get some new information from dex? Yeah. So, um… pikeman’s rep is a guy named hume, right? Correct. Dex witnessed valentin and hume meeting on the same day the sniper team tried to take sonny out at the metro court pool. No. No, that’s impossible. You are giving me too much credit, willow. You’re literally one of the most forgiving people I’ve ever met. I like to think so, but with nina, it is different. I mean, after everything she did, I had to distance myself, but maybe it is time I stopped being so angry at her — for both of our sakes. Well, you’ve got my support, whatever you choose. Thank you. So, what did you want to talk to me about? I have been thinking about the proposal from the nonprofit, and I just wanted to get more information. And michael suggested I circle back to you since you were the one who had the preliminary contact with the organization. Yeah, the new tomorrow institute. Absolutely. Have a seat. What do you want to know? Can you give me a little more information about what it is they’re looking for? Sure. Um… from our conversation, what I know is that they want to educate the general public because most people just really don’t understand how life-saving stem-cell and bone-marrow transplants from cord blood can be, especially when it comes to incredibly difficult to treat cancers a-and diseases. And the therapy is in its infancy, of course, but the — the success rate is climbing every day. Yeah. I get that. Before I got leukemia, a lot of that was foreign to me, too. Right. That’s what they want to do. T-they want to get that information. They want to make it easier to digest for the general public, and they’d like a face and a — and a voice to help spread awareness, somebody that’s young and vibrant and articulate and a survivor — like you. I mean, you’d be perfect. What exactly would I be doing on a daily basis? Well, you’d be the first person to have the job, so I think it’s yours to define, but I’m assuming you’d be doing some public speaking, probably making some videos, psas. I know they want you to advocate for fundraising. All of that seems within my capabilities. Definitely. Now, I also know that they want to keep as much money as possible for the foundation, right? So, I mean, the pay would be low, but you and michael are pretty wealthy, so I’m assuming maybe you wouldn’t want to take a salary anyway. Well, I’m not sure. I mean, the last thing I would ever want to do is take money away from someplace that needs it, but I have always paid my own way, and I’m really proud of that. However, having the flexibility to spend more time with wiley and amelia might be a bigger priority to me right now than a paycheck. If you decide to take on the role, I’m sure they’re gonna work it out. It’s pretty amazing, you know, that you’re such a good person that causes like this know they can reach out to you for help. Well, I probably should be humble and say I’m no angel, but I… I really like you thinking that I am. Maxie! Great! You’re still here. I’m trying really hard not to be. What’s up? I’m celebrating. Ugh. Celebrating what? Willow spoke to me — with actual words, said not in anger and not just in my presence, to my face of her own choice. That is real progress. Please tell me how it happened. Well, believe it or not, it’s because of drew. I did not see that coming. Yeah, neither did I. And she only talked to me tonight because she thinks that drew and i are friends now when we actually hate each other more than ever. Even the sex is hateful. The what, now? Yes, wiley, you can pet the horses, but please do not — and I repeat — do not even think about feeding them gum again. I know where the carrots are. I can feed them those instead. Okay. Cody: They would absolutely love that. Just make sure you only do one carrot at a time, okay? Alright.

[ Chuckles ] Okay, um, I don’t want to be pushy, but I am going a little out of my mind here. What did you think about my dinner? I think that you should probably open up a food-delivery service because that tetrazzini was delicious. You liked it?! I loved it. So did the boys. See? I told you you were worrying about nothing. Okay, okay, okay! I can hear everybody gushing about sasha’s cooking all the way up here. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, okay? Frankly, I thought there was a little too much oregano, not enough basil. That would have improved the dish immensely. I’m — I’m with you there, mama Q. Sasha brought me a plate, and it was delicious, except for the oregano. See that? That’s a man after my own heart. Okay. Other than that minor miscue, michael and I both thought that the dish was excellent. Even the boys liked it. They’re notoriously hard to please. So… what do you think? Can you put a dinner like that on the table every single night, plus breakfasts and lunches? Because, if you can, the job is yours.

You think? You want tobe the new quartermaine cook? Yes! I would love the job! Thank you! Thank you so much! Ohh! You earned it, honey. You did. I’d like to personally request tetrazzini at least once a week. You got it. Ah. Perfect.

[ Water splashes ] Did you guys hear that? Yeah. What’s he doing in there? Oh, I’ll handle it. Wiley? Do I hear splashing? Never a dull moment around here. But I promise you — you will get used to it. I can’t wait. I know I’m gonna love working for the quartermaines. And I promise you that everyone in the family, young and old, will have healthy, filling meals in between all the amazing dinners that you make. I’m sure we will. So, you want to go up to the house? I will show you your room and where everything is. Definitely. Great. We’re good here, right, cody? Absolutely. Okay. I don’t know… exactly what is going on between the two of you, but I think we better establish a couple of ground rules. Lay ’em on us, mama Q. Okay. What the two of you do on your own time is completely up to you. But let us be very clear from the get-go that there will be no late-night tippy-toeing into sasha’s bedroom while there are children in the house, which is basically all the time. You have nothing to worry about olivia. I promise. Okay. Good. I’m not the morality police. Far from it. But… the house is full of impressionable children and gossipy adults. You got it?

[ Chuckles ] Okay. I’ll see you up at the house. You two are very cute together. But let’s be very, very clear. I got my eyes on you.

[ Sasha and cody laugh ] I know. It’s crazy. I can’t even explain it to myself why it keeps happening. “Keeps” happening, nina? How many times have you two…? Ahh. Well, you know how it is, you know? One thing leads to another, and before you know it, it’s just happening. No, no, no, no, no, no. T-that’s something you say about online shopping, not sex with your sworn enemy — because you and drew do hate each other. It just happened. I don’t know what to tell you. It’s not like it’s hateful during. It’s — it’s great. It’s actually really great. Anyway, when it’s over, I despise him even more, along with myself, but that’s a conversation for another time. A therapist would have a field day with you. Okay. Can you just not think about the sex for a second? Alright. Willow thinks that drew is this kind of stubble-wearing superhero that can do no wrong, and the only reason that she is talking to me is because she thinks that drew and i are getting along. How do I keep drew on my side? Won’t the great sex help with that? No, I can’t — I can’t rely on that. I-I just — I need to throw him some other kind of bone to keep him happy with me. Wouldn’t it be funny, after everything that’s happened, if drew was the reason you got your family back? So, dex texted me the picture he took. Oh, that’s the cosmopolitan hotel, yeah? Yeah. You see the date stamp? That can easily be doctored. What would dex get from that? Nothing. Oh, son of a bitch. Valentin was lying the whole time. About what? About everything. When nikolas disappeared, laura and kevin, they had to go over to europe to try to search for him. And the only lead they had was chechnya, which is unstable, dangerous. So valentin volunteered to go with them. He was gone for two months. And that day… right? July 6. He called me. He called me and he said he was in geneva. But he wasn’T. He was here in port charles. With hume.

[ Sighs ] Okay, so pikeman briefed me and hamish about the metro court shooting. Basically to prep us for the job at the warehouse. It was a two-man sniper team, same as us. They got a room, they set up in the metro court, they took the shot, and then they evacuated to an extraction point where they met senior personnel who were running the op. Roman hume… and valentin? Look. They didn’t give us any names. But it sure looks like it. Well, clearly, valentin does more for pikeman than just set meetings. I was just with him. You know, when you texted me, I was — I was with him. I bumped into him at the metro court bar, and he said he’d been out of the country, that he went to switzerland to deliver his daughter back to boarding school… that it was her idea. But now I’m wondering… if it doesn’t just make it easier for him to do pikeman’s bidding. You know, switzerland’s a neutral country. It’s famously discreet. God. Half the world’s arms is sold there. He has a perfect reason to return at any point, whenever pikeman requires. So what do you want to do? Remember I told you that I was at the wsb with him? With valentin? Trainees. He was very good. But I was better.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Line ringing ] I knew it. You never could resist my animal magnetism. I’m not sure I’d put it that way. Just was… I was thinking about your dinner invitation.

Update written by Joseph

Tripp and Wendy visit with Steve and Kayla at their home. Kayla mentions that it’s too bad Stephanie had to go to a meeting or they all could’ve been together before Tripp and Wendy leave. Tripp assures that they will say goodbye and keep in touch via video chat. Wendy adds that Stephanie encouraged them to take the trip to Hong Kong. Steve thinks it’s great that they are getting away for awhile. Steve bets Wendy’s parents are happy about it too, which she confirms. Kayla jokes about them not coming back, so Tripp promises they will be back.

Brady and Rachel eat breakfast together at the Brady Pub. Ava approaches and greets them. Rachel tells her that they are going to the aquarium. Brady explains that he’s chaperoning. Ava says that sounds like fun. They laugh together until John enters the Pub. Ava then tells them to have a great time and quickly exits the Pub. John joins Brady and Rachel, exciting Rachel as they hug.

Theresa prepares breakfast and dresses in her nightgown as she calls for Alex to wake up but there’s no response. Theresa guesses she will be Alex’s alarm clock then and goes to his room.

Alex and Kristen kiss in bed in Kristen’s room at the DiMera Mansion.

Kayla asks if Tripp plans to learn Mandarin while in Hong Kong. Wendy says she has taught him a little. Tripp mentions that he does plan on taking some classes and volunteering at a clinic in Hong Kong. Kayla tells Tripp that she will miss him at the hospital but she’s happy for them to get away from Salem for a bit. Wendy goes with Kayla to help with breakfast. Steve tells Tripp that he knows he’s intelligent with great instincts, but warns that the culture in China is very different. Tripp says that Wendy has already been giving him the do’s and don’ts. Steve brings up Tripp and Wendy’s impromptu wedding right before they were rescued. Tripp explains that they thought they were going to die and only had a few minutes left, so they decided to get unofficially married, but once they were rescued, they decided to talk about it and there was no need to rush things. Steve suggests maybe someday. Steve tells Tripp that he’s so glad that he found somebody who makes him happy and says he’s so proud of the man he’s become. Steve says he just wants the best for him because he deserves it. Tripp thanks him as they hug.

John asks Rachel about school. Rachel tells him that she won the spelling bee last week. Rachel sees one of her friends and asks if she can go say hi. Brady agrees and tells her to just stay where he can see her. John tells Brady that it’s so good to see his granddaughter again. Brady admits that it’s been a rough couple months with Kristen having full custody, but she is encouraging him to see more of Rachel and been surprisingly supportive of that. John doesn’t mean to overstep but asks if Brady has asked himself why he thinks that is.

Kristen and Alex continue kissing in bed. They talk about starting in bed and ending up in the shower. Kristen says she would love to go another round but Rachel is going to be there any minute. Alex starts to get up but Kristen reminds him that this was the plan for Rachel to see them together and then tell Brady about it. Alex and Kristen then resume kissing.

Theresa comments on it being weird that Alex’s bed was made and there’s no piles of clothes on the floor. Theresa wonders if Alex already left for work and sends him a text message. Konstantin then shows up at her door and tells her that he needs her help. Theresa asks if Maggie figured out that he’s just after her money. Konstantin reveals that Maggie had him sign a prenup. Theresa calls that smart and guesses Konstantin is screwed and can’t steal Victor’s money now. Konstantin declares that he will get it one way or another because he did not come all this way just to lose what he came for.

Wendy talks to Kayla about her parents being excited for her to come home and says that her mom can’t wait to meet Tripp. Kayla tells her that she’s so happy that they found each other, noting that Tripp really is crazy about her. Wendy says she feels the same. Kayla thinks the time away from Salem will be great for them and assures that they always have a home here.

Alex puts on a robe as he and Kristen have coffee and talk about selling the idea to Rachel that they slept together. Alex doesn’t think it will be a tough sell and kisses Kristen. Kristen calls it funny as she thought for awhile that Brady was the only man she had eyes for. Alex feels the same with Theresa. Kristen knows their plan to make their partners jealous took a slight detour, but she’s not complaining as they continue kissing.

Brady tells John that maybe Kristen is finally mellowing and realizing that Rachel needs a father in her life. John hopes that’s true for his sake. John adds that he hates to be a cynic but he’s pretty sure that Kristen being open to Brady spending more time with Rachel is just another ploy to reel him back in. Brady agrees that he’s probably right but says she’d be wasting her time because there’s no way he’d ever get back with her. Brady says Kristen will have to give him up, much like she had to give John up. John argues that the big difference is that he and Kristen never had a child together. Brady states that unfortunately, he’s always going to have Kristen in his life.

Theresa tells Konstantin that she’s puzzled how he didn’t see this coming. Konstantin repeats that he needs her help. Theresa argues that if she even mentions it to Maggie, she will figure out they were in cahoots and he already signed it. Konstantin yells at her to find another way. Theresa asks if he wants her to make the prenup disappear, which Konstantin confirms.

Tripp and Wendy talk about going to visit a friend of Wendy’s in China. Ava shows up at the door. Steve answers the door and says they weren’t expecting her. Tripp explains that he invited her but wasn’t sure she would come. Ava admits she wasn’t sure either but decided it was important to spend this time with all of them and she hopes that’s okay. Kayla looks unhappy but Steve invites her in. Tripp hugs Ava and says he’s glad she made it. Ava respond that she’s happy she could be at her son’s farewell.

Kristen tells Alex that Rachel was supposed to come in and wonders if Brady didn’t show up or what’s going on. Alex suggests maybe Rachel overslept but Kristen insists that Rachel was too excited for her field trip. Alex says maybe Brady stopped by, picked her up and signed the permission slip but Kristen argues that Brady can’t do that as a non custodial parent. Kristen decides she’s going to find out what’s going on and gets out of bed to get her phone.

Brady talks to John about he and Kristen sharing a child as he then gets a call from Kristen, who questions where he is. Brady informs her that he’s at the Pub with John and Rachel as they are about to go on the field trip. Kristen is shocked to learn that Brady already picked her up. Kristen tells Brady that he needs to get back there because she never signed the permission slip. Brady informs her that Rachel said that she did. Brady then asks Rachel about it and Rachel reveals that she signed the permission slip herself which shocks Brady. Rachel asks if Brady is going to tell her teacher.

Tripp says they have a few errands to run before heading to the airport. Steve asks if he’s sure they can’t give them a ride. They assure they’ve already booked their rideshare. Ava offers to go with them on their errands which Wendy agrees to. Tripp tells Steve and Kayla that he guesses this is goodbye for now as Steve hugs him. Steve tells Tripp that he’s really going to miss him. Tripp says the same. Steve jokes with Wendy to make sure that Tripp doesn’t get in to too much trouble. Ava tells Wendy that their hearts are with her parents for all they have been through and they are so lucky to have her as a daughter. Wendy knows Tripp feels the same about them. Wendy knows the huge sacrifice it is for Tripp to come with her. Tripp assures that he wants to go with her and get to know her friends and family to feel closer to her. Tripp adds that they’ll be back here a lot. Kayla tells Tripp that she loves him and how proud of him she is at the hospital. Tripp jokes that he’s proud to be related to the chief of staff. Tripp repeats that they’ll video chat and talk on the phone a lot. Steve suggests maybe they’ll take a visit to Hong Kong to visit them. Wendy assures they will always have a place with her parents. Ava asks if they are ready. Tripp says yes and thanks Kayla and Steve again for breakfast. Steve and Kayla hug Tripp goodbye and then hug Wendy as well. Tripp and Wendy then exit with Ava as Steve and Kayla tearfully wave goodbye. Kayla comments on Tripp having her heart and reminding her so much of Steve.

Alex asks Kristen what happened. Kristen informs him that Rachel is with Brady and she forged her signature on the permission slip. Alex jokes that she’s a chip off the old block. Kristen says now that Rachel is with Brady, they’ll be off to the field trip. Alex guesses they missed the opportunity for Rachel to see them cuddling and report back to Brady. Alex asks if that means all this cuddling was for nothing. Kristen says just because their plan didn’t serve a purpose, it’s never for nothing when they had a fantastic time. Kristen points out that Rachel won’t be there for awhile and asks if Alex is in any rush. Alex assures her that his morning happens to be wide open.

Brady tells Rachel that it’s wrong to forge a signature and questions where she learned to do that. Rachel responds that she practiced. Brady informs her that forging a signature is a crime. Rachel asks even if you don’t get caught. Brady comments on her sounding like her mother and brings up Kristen being in prison. Brady talks to her about not forging signatures or doing things just because she doesn’t get caught. Rachel tells him that he doesn’t have to get mad. Brady feels he does to make sure that she doesn’t do those things. John decides he needs to get back to the office. John advises Rachel to listen to Brady because he wants what’s best for her. John says he’ll see them soon as he exits the Pub. Brady instructs Rachel to finish her breakfast. Rachel first asks Brady if he has a girlfriend.

Theresa questions Konstantin wanting her to break in to the Kiriakis safe. Konstantin encourages that she will find a way. Theresa argues that there’s probably a digital copy of the prenup on Maggie’s hard drive but Konstantin assures that there isn’t since he signed it in pen and he saw Maggie put the only copy into the safe. Theresa refuses to help Konstantin with this part. Konstantin argues that in that case, securing Victor’s fortune goes up in smoke along with their entire plan which means she loses the money, Alex, Brady, and the respect of her son. Konstantin hopes she understands what is at stake for her and warns that she’d be well advised to never say no to him again as he then storms out of the apartment.

Wendy, Tripp, and Ava walk through the town square. Wendy stops and says she’s going to get some luggage trackers before they go, so she walks away. Ava asks Tripp if there’s anything she can do for him before he goes. Tripp says he’s good and thanks her. Ava tells Tripp that she’s going to miss him. Tripp assures that he’ll be back. Ava says even though Tripp was taken away from her as a baby, he’s always been such a big part of her heart. Ava says coming back, making amends, and having him in her life has been her greatest joy. Ava tells Tripp that she loves him. Ava adds that she’s so sorry for the harm that she caused him as she knows it wasn’t easy for him to find out that he was the son of a mafia princess. Tripp insists that he’s really proud of her for leaving that life behind. Ava feels she doesn’t deserve him to be proud of her. Ava tells Tripp that she loves and respects him. Ava adds that all she ever wanted was for him to be happy and at peace. Tripp says that’s all he wanted for her too. Tripp asks her to stay out of trouble for him while he’s gone. Ava promises she will as they hug.

Brady questions Rachel asking if he has a girlfriend. Rachel says it’s because Kristen has a boyfriend. Brady acknowledges Alex and asks how she feels about that. Rachel says she doesn’t know but that Alex seems nice. Brady knows she wants he and Kristen to be together and even though they aren’t right for each other, that has nothing to do with her. Brady tells Rachel that no matter what he and Kristen are going through, they love her. Brady calls Rachel the most important thing to him.

Alex goes home where Theresa greets him. Theresa realizes Alex is in the same clothes as yesterday which he admits. Theresa points out that Alex didn’t come home last night which he confirms.

Steve tells Kayla that the plane hasn’t taken off and he’s already missing Tripp. Kayla feels the same but she thinks Tripp made the best decision for himself and that he and Wendy will have a wonderful time. Steve decides that with everything going on in his life lately, maybe Tripp would be better off not being around him. Kayla questions what he’s talking about. Steve says it’s Konstantin blaming him for taking the Pawn to Aria and for his daughter’s death. Steve can’t shake the feeling that John bought into it and he doesn’t blame him because if he hadn’t taken that job with Victor and been strong enough to say no, that young woman would be alive right now, but she isn’t.

John works at Black Patch until Konstantin shows up. John asks what he can do for him.

Tripp and Wendy go over making sure they have their passports and their ride is two minutes away. They hug as Wendy asks if he’s ready to do this. Tripp says that with her, he’s ready for anything as he loves her so much. Wendy says she loves him too as they kiss. Wendy asks how many movies they can watch before their plane lands and goes over her suggestions. They then hold hands and walk off together.

Theresa questions where Alex was. Alex asks why she cares since they are just roommates. Theresa asks him please not to tell her that he was with Kristen. Alex doesn’t know why that’s relevant and calls it none of her business. Theresa questions him being with Kristen and asks how he could do that after everything Kristen has done and put her through. Alex says he’s not getting in to this with her and says it’s on her because she said she wanted to keep things platonic, so she got it. Alex declares that his love life is his business alone. Theresa admits she said that, so she shouldn’t feel angry or jealous but admits that she does. Alex gets a call from Kristen but ignores it. Alex tells Theresa that he has to shower and get to the office as he has a huge meeting. Alex says maybe they can get in to this after as he leaves the room.

Kristen leaves Alex a message, saying she’s just lying in bed thinking about him and his gorgeous body and how he just takes control. Kristen says she had a marvelous time and thinks they are on the same page. Kristen admits their plan didn’t go as they hoped, but she thinks it went a lot better. Kristen adds that she’d like to see Alex again and again and again.

Brady and Rachel exit the Pub. Rachel tells Brady that she’s really happy he’s coming on the field trip with her. Brady responds that he’s happy to do anything with her anytime as they walk off together.

Kayla acknowledges that Steve is very upset and suggests he call John to let him know his take on the accusation from Konstantin and being responsible for the loss of his daughter, which she knows is not true. Kayla urges Steve to call John and clear the air. Steve guesses he can do that and let John know how he feels about all of this.

Konstantin tells John that he’s looking for Steve and asks if he’s around. John informs him that Steve took the morning off to spend time with his family. Konstantin decides he’ll be on his way then but John gets a call from Steve. Konstantin then rushes back to John and shows his card in his face to take control of John as the Pawn. Konstantin orders John to listen to every word he says because he has an extremely important mission for him.

Lily: Well, I did have an interesting conversation with Mamie today. And by interesting, I mean disturbing.

Billy: Let me guess, you didn’t vote the party line? Is that why?

Lily: Oh, no. She went as far to say that maybe I was too emotionally distraught over my breakup with Daniel in order to make the right decision.

[ Billy whistles ]

Billy: Damn. That’s just rude.

Lily: I don’t know. Maybe she was being sympathetic.

Billy: Which means you think maybe she wasn’t. So does that mean you’re finally coming around to the idea that your aunt Mamie is trouble?


Tucker: Ashley, I– I know you– you don’t want to listen to me, but I hope you will listen to your sister.

Ashley: Thank you so much, daddy issue. Now, excuse me, I’m gonna go to the ladies’ before we hit the road.

Traci: I will go with you.

Ashley: No, you will not. I’ll be back in a second. Excuse me.

[ Traci sighs ]

Tucker: Seems we have an entirely new Ashley this evening.

Traci: I don’t know what you mean.

Tucker: Tracy. [ Sighs ] I walked in on a family intervention about getting her help, and it would appear she hasn’t gotten any.

Traci: Look, I am not gonna have this conversation with you, tucker. You or audra. This is a private family matter. And I thought we all agreed that this is no longer any of your concern, so–

Tucker: She did threaten me.

Traci: And I think you can see by her behavior tonight, she couldn’t care less about you. So please, just take this opportunity to let it go.

Tucker: Let it go

You know, it’s really too bad that Stephanie had to run off to that meeting. It would have been so nice for us all to be together. That’s okay though. We were able to say goodbye and we’ll video chat with her a lot. Actually, I’m not sure if you guys know this, but Stephanie is the one who encouraged us to take this trip.

Oh. Yeah. Next thing I know, we’re booked on a flight to Hong Kong. Well, I think it’s great that two of you are getting away for a while. And I bet your parents are happy about it, huh, Wendy? Oh, yeah, that’s an understatement. Well, listen, don’t go having a great time. So much so that you don’t come back. No, don’t worry.

We’ll be back. Okay. Promise.

Want some?

Hey, pretty girl. Hey, pretty. Hi, Ava. So, uh, you two having a little daddy daughter breakfast before school today? There’s no school today. Yeah. We’re going to the aquarium. I’m, I’m chaperoning today. Ah, I see. That sounds like fun. So, um, What’s your favorite kind of fish, Rachel? A great big orca. Oh. Like in Free Willy.

You know what’s funny? Orcas aren’t even fish. They’re mammals. It’s true. Oh, then I guess a goldfish? That works.

Well, you two have a great time, alright? Thank you.

You two want some company? Oh, Rachy, Rachy, Rachy, Rachy! You just made my day! You made mine too! Oh, honey. Oh, sweetie girl. Alex!

Rise and shine! I made you coffee and a very special breakfast. And I do hope, Monsieur Kiriakis, that you have a big appetite.


Alex, you do have to go to work, don’t you? Okay, then. Guess I’ll be your alarm clock.

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

So, are you going to learn Mandarin while you’re there? I have been teaching him some, and his accent’s pretty good. I don’t know about that, but, uh, I do plan on, you know, putting myself in some in person courses while we’re there, and, uh, I plan on volunteering at a clinic, so. Hey, that’s great, son. Yeah. And as much as I’m going to miss you at the hospital, and I am, it’s so great for you two to get away, take a break from Salem.

Well, listen. How about breakfast? Oh, I’ll help. Okay. Um, I don’t need much help, but I’ll take the comfy.

Looks like we might have a few minutes to ourselves here, huh?

Listen, buddy. I know you’re a savvy, intelligent dude. And you’ve got great instincts. I gotta tell you, the culture in China is very different from ours. Yeah, don’t, don’t worry. Wendy’s already been kinda giving me the do’s and don’ts. You know, like, uh, don’t wear your shoes inside someone’s house. Uh, never leave your chopsticks standing straight up in your food.

And, uh, oh, and never, uh, use someone’s first name unless you’re told to. Oh. Yeah. Sounds like you got it all covered. I like the chapstick’s bed, I didn’t know about that. You know, um, A little bird told me, That right before you and Wendy were rescued from that terrible situation, You had a little impromptu wedding?

Yes, yes we did. As we know, we thought we were going to die. So we only had A few minutes left, so. We decided to get unofficially married, but then once we were rescued and Oxygen returned to our prefrontal cortexes. Thankfully, we decided to talk about it and Decided that, you know, there’s no need to rush things.

Maybe someday, huh?

Listen, buddy. I’m just so glad. That you found somebody who makes you happy. And I’m so proud of you. I’m so proud of the man you’ve become. I just want the very best for you. You deserve it. Thanks dad.

Now your daddy here tells me you’re doing really well in school, especially in science. I’m really good at spelling too. I won the class spelling bee last week. Holy mackerel, that is impressive. That’s Riley’s big sister. Can I go say hi? Yeah. Yeah, sure, just stay where I can see you. Okay. It’s just so good to see my granddaughter again.

I bet. Dad, it’s been, uh, I’m not gonna lie to you, it’s been rough the last couple months with Kristen having full custody. Yeah. But, she, um, she’s encouraging me to see more of Rachel. So, it’s, it’s good. I mean, she’s been surprisingly supportive of that. Hey. Hey. You know, I don’t mean to overstep here, but Son, have you asked yourself, what do you think that is?

Oh, my. Alright. So, we started here. On the bed and then, uh, moved to the shower. And then we went around and, uh, no. Two rounds in the claw foot tub. Uh huh. That was a bit challenging, but you know. Oh, I think we rose to the occasion. Oh, we definitely rose to the occasion. Oh, damn, Ari. I know it as much as I would love to go another round with you.

Rachel’s gonna be here any minute. Oh, right. Whoa, whoa, whoa. Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. Hey, hey, what are you doing? This was the plan, remember? Oh, yeah, yeah. Yes, yes, yes. Rachel was gonna come in here, get her permission slip signed. Oh, yeah. And then she was gonna see us together. Yes. And then she was gonna tell Brady that you and I were cuddling.

Cuddling, huh? Yeah. Well, that’s what she’ll call it, I assume. And hopefully Brady will, uh, get the idea. I think Brady’s going to assume that we were having a passionate affair. Yeah? Oh, indeed. And he will be a salmon. Correctly, won’t he? Indeed. Huh, that’s weird. This bed’s made. And there are no piles of clothes on the floor from the night before.

Is it possible? You already left for work? Good morning to

you too. Get in there. Alex is going to work. Yes, he has. What do you want? I need your help, Theresa. You need my help? What happened? Did Nike figure out you’re not really such a catch and that you’re really after her money? She had me sign a prenup. Wow. Well, I guess you’re screwed. Can’t really steal Victor’s money from her now, huh?

Oh, I will get this fortune one way or the other. I did not come all this way or go through all this trouble only to, to lose what I came for.

Your parents must have been so excited when you told them you were coming home. They were. They’re both really excited. And my mom, she just, she can’t wait to meet Trip in person. I bet. There’s a big difference between video chatting with your kids and hugging them in real life. Huge difference. Yeah. Well, I want you to know that I am So happy that the two of you found each other.

I mean, he really is crazy about you. Oh, I feel the same way about him. And Tripp is a great guy. I’m very lucky. He’s lucky too. And I think this time away from Salem is going to be great for you too. And just know that you always, always have a home here.

So? Sexy. What do you think? Yeah? I think yeah. Yeah? Yeah. I don’t think it’s too small. Uh. a velvet smoking jacket or anything like that? No, Alex, I do not have a velvet smoking jacket. Good. And anyway, well, uh, so the idea that you and I slept together when Rachel sees you in Mommy’s robe. In Mommy’s robe?

Well, like I said. Uh. Uh. We said, I don’t think it’s gonna be a very tough sell. Mm hmm. Mm. It’s funny. I thought for a while that Brady was the only man I had eyes for. Yeah. Same. For me. And Teresa. Yeah? Mm hmm. Well, I know a plan to make our prospective partners jealous. Took a slight detour last night. And again, and again, and this morning.

Oh, this morning. Again, and again. And I’m telling you, I’m not complaining. No, neither am I. Good. Mmm. Mmm. I don’t know, Dad. Maybe, maybe Kristen is finally, you know, mellowing. Maybe she realizes that Rachel needs a father in her life. Well, for your sake, I hope that’s true. And as much as I hate to be a cynic here, I’m pretty sure that Her being open to You spending more time with Rachel is just another ploy to reel you back in.

Alright, Dad, you know, You’re probably right. Alright, you’re probably right, but She’s wasting her time because there’s no way I’m ever, I’m ever gonna get back together with that woman. She’s gonna have to give me up. Period. Very much in the same way that she had to give you up back then. No, no, no, no, no, no.

You never had a child together. Big difference between the two of you.

I know. Unfortunately, I am. I’m always gonna have Kristen in my life.

Forgive me, I’m just a little bit puzzled. Not about why Maggie would want the prenup, I mean, why the hell would she, but about how you didn’t foresee this happening. I did not come here to be mocked, Teresa, or judged. I need your help. My help? Yes! Okay, you know that if I so much as mention this to Maggie, she’s gonna suspect that you and I were in cahoots together.

Secondly, you’ve already signed the damn prenup! Then find another Another way. Yes. Okay, let me think. Uh, G, let’s see. Shall I just make the prenup, poof, disappear into thin air? Is that what you want me to do? Actually, it is.

Can you believe that Guangzhou has a population of over 19 million people? I mean, that’s more than New York and Los Angeles combined. Oh, I have a friend who lives there and loves it. Like, she did a study abroad there and just never left. You know, we should go visit her. Yeah. Oh. I’ll get it. Okay. Hey, Ava.

Hey. Well,

we weren’t expecting you. I, I invited her. Um, the reason I didn’t tell you guys is because, well, Mom, you weren’t sure you were going to come. You thought you were just going to say bye to us later. Yeah, I wasn’t sure. But then I decided that it was important for me to share this time with all of you. I hope that’s okay.

Well, come on in.

I’m glad you can make it, Mom. Yeah, I’m just so happy I can be here at my son’s farewell.

Okay. You know, I don’t get it. I don’t get it. I mean, Rachel was supposed to come in here and have her permission slip signed, and then Brady didn’t show up. I mean, what the hell is going on? Well, maybe Rachel overslept. No, no, no. She wouldn’t do that. She’s, um, too excited for her field trip this morning.

And, uh, even if she did oversleep, Brady would have called me. Yeah, but I mean, maybe Brady just I don’t know. Stop by, pick her up, sign the permission slip. No, he can’t do that as a non custodial parent. He just can’t do that. I’m gonna go find out what’s going on.

All right, just because Kristen and I share a child, look, we’ll always be connected that way. I get that, but that doesn’t mean that, excuse me. Kristen? Well, where are you? I’m at the pub. With my dad and with Rachel, we’re having breakfast. We’re about to go on the field trip. What? What? You already picked her up?

Obviously. Well, Brady, you need to get back here. What for? Well, because the permission slip, I never signed it. Rachel said that you did. Hey, honey, honey, um, Ami said that she never signed the permission slip. I know. I did. What? You, uh, you forged her signature? You’re not gonna tell my teacher, are you? We

do have a few errands to run at the square before we head to the airport. Are you sure we can’t drive you? Dad, no, no, no, no. We already put the rideshare. Oh, we are not letting you make that long drive. What? I would love to run your errands with you. I mean, if that is okay. Oh, of course.

I guess, uh, I guess this is goodbye. For now, anyway. I’m really gonna miss you,

buddy. I’m gonna miss you too, Dad. Wendy. You make sure he doesn’t get into too much trouble, okay? I’ll do my best. And please, you tell your parents that our hearts are with them for everything that they have been through. And they are so lucky that they have such a wonderful and caring daughter. I feel lucky to have such loving, caring parents.

And I know Tripp feels the same way about all of you guys. Which That’s why I also know what a huge sacrifice it is for him to come with me. No. No, it’s not a sacrifice. Okay, I want to be with you. I want to get to know your friends and family over there. Maybe feel closer to you. Plus, we’ll be back here a lot.

Right. Yeah. Well, you better be. Yeah. Tripp, I just, I just want you to know how much I love you. When everybody sings your praises at the hospital about what a wonderful doctor you are, I just want you to know I am so proud of you.

I am so proud to be related to the Chief of Staff. Who everyone pretty much worships there. That is not true. But, Very kind of you. Anyway,

You know, we’ll, We’ll chat a lot, you know, talk on the phone a lot. We’ll do all that, all of it. And hey, maybe we’ll take a trip to Hong Kong ourselves someday to visit you. Yeah, yeah, yeah, me too. Please, you must. You guys will always have a place in my parents home. Ah, thank you, Mindy. So, you ready? Yeah.

Thank you again for such a great breakfast. You’re welcome. Well, safe travels. Don’t leave me, Dad. Caleb. Oh, gosh, I love you so much. It’s gonna be great. It’s gonna be great.

Wendy. Take good care of them, huh? Please. Of course.

That boy has my heart. He reminds me so much of you. Oh, I really love that guy. I know you do, baby. So do I.

So, what happened? Oh, well, Rachel is with Brady. Oh. Yeah. The little rascal, she forged my signature on the permission slip. Oh, well, chip off the old block. Yeah, she is, I’m afraid so. Well, now that she’s with Brady having breakfast, they’ll be off to the field trip. Oh. Yeah. So, we missed our opportunity. For Rachel to see us cuddling and report it back to daddy.

Oh yeah, completely. We missed our opportunity. So does that mean all this cuddling was for nothing? Oh, I wouldn’t say that. I mean, just because our plan didn’t serve a purpose, it, uh, is it ever for nothing when you’ve had a fantastic, life farthing, exciting time? No, I suppose not. Oh, well, you know what?

Rachel’s not going to be here for a while. And you’re in no rush, are you? My morning happens to be wide open. Get over here!

Sweetie, you know that it’s wrong to forge a signature, right? We’re just going to learn to do that anyway. I practiced. You practiced? Okay, well, well, well, forging a signature is a crime. And if you don’t get caught? Wow, you’re sounding more like your mother all the time. Listen, you, Rachel, your mother’s done some things that landed her in prison.

So I know you don’t want that. I don’t want that for you either. So from now on, look at me. No more forging. No more doing things just because you think they’re okay. And you’re not going to get caught. Okay, no more. You hear me? Okay, Daddy. You don’t have to get mad though. I, I think I do have to get mad because otherwise you won’t know that it’s wrong.

Okay? So we need to understand now that’s settled. You know what? I gotta, I gotta get back to the office. Um, listen, squirt, I want you to listen to your daddy, okay? Because not only is he smart. But he also only wants what’s best for you. I know. I know you know. I love you, pumpkin. And I’ll see you real soon.

And I’ll see you soon, kid. Bye, Dad. Hey. Finish your breakfast. Okay, but first I have a question. What’s your question? Do you have a girlfriend?

I’m sorry, did I hear you right? You want me to break into the Kiriakis safe. What do you think I am, Catwoman? You are a natural. You will find a way. Find a way? Even still, did it occur to you that there’s probably a digital copy sitting on Maggie’s lawyer’s hard drive? Actually, there is not. I signed it the old fashioned way with a pen.

I saw her put the only executed copy in the safe. Well, even so, I’m not going to help you with this part of the plan. No way in hell. Then securing Victor’s fortune goes up in smoke, as does our entire plan. Which means you not only lose the money, but you lose Alex and Brady, not to mention the respect of your son.

I hope you understand what is at stake here for you, Teresa. And you would be well advised to never say no to me again.


before we go, I’m gonna go get some of those luggage trackers. I don’t want our bags to somehow end up in like New Delhi and then we have no clue where they are. That’s a great idea, thanks. I’ll be right back. Um, Trep, honey, is there, is there anything that I can do for you before you go? No, I think I’m good.

Thanks, though, Mom. No. Oh, God, I’m gonna miss you. I’ll be back. I’m not falling off the face of the Earth. I know, but Ah, Tripp.

Even though you were taken away from me when you were a baby, God, ever since you were born, you’re such a big part of my heart. And you know, coming back from the brink of death and making amends, having you back in my life, It is been my greatest joy. I love you so much. I love you too, mom. And I know you know this, but maybe I haven’t said it enough.

I am so, so sorry for the harm that I caused you. I know it wasn’t easy for you to find out that you were the son of a mafia princess. You have left that world behind. I’m really proud of you for that. Yeah, well, I don’t deserve you being proud of me, but

God, as long as you love me, and you know that I love and respect you, it’s everything for me.

Oh, baby. You know, all I’ve ever wanted for you is for you to be happy. And to be at peace with yourself.

I’ll do more for you too. So please, while I’m gone, stay out of trouble. For me, okay? I will. For you. Oh God, I promise you. Girlfriend?

Why would you ask me that? Because mommy has a boyfriend. Yeah, I know. I know his name is Alex. How do you feel about that? I don’t know. He seems nice. Yeah. I think I know why you asked me what you asked me.

Honey, I know you want Mommy and I to be together. And I want you to know that even though we’re not right for each other, That has nothing to do with you, okay?

I’m serious. I’ve told you this before and I’m going to tell you this again, sweetie, that no matter what your mom and I are going through, even though we might not be together, we love you with all of our hearts. You are the most important thing to me. The most important thing, and you always will be, okay?


Alex. Hi. Theresa, hi. Hey. What are you, um, Are you, you’re, Are you in the same clothes as yesterday? Um, yes. Yes, I am. And you didn’t come home last night. Right. I did not. Hmm. This plane hasn’t even taken off and I’m already missing my boy. I know. I feel the same way. But I do think that Tripp made the right decision for himself.

And that he and Wendy are going to have an exciting, wonderful time. I know they will. But baby, uh, with everything that’s been going on in my life lately, I think maybe Tripp would be better off not being around me. You know? No, I, I don’t. What are you talking about?

I’m talking about Constantine blaming me for taking the pawn to Arya. Blaming me for his daughter’s death. And I can’t shake the feeling that Jon bought into it. Stay. But I don’t blame him. I don’t blame him because if I hadn’t taken that job, With Victor, if I had been strong enough to say no, that young woman would be alive right now.

She isn’t.

Yeah, it’s open.

Constantine, what can I do for you?

So, do you have everything? Wallet, passports? I do, yeah. Do you? Uh, I do. Everything about you? And Wayne, in a grey sedan, is about two minutes away. I’ll marry you.

You ready to do this? Definitely. Before I’m with you. I’m ready for anything. I love you so much, Wendy. I love you too.

So, how many movies do you think we can watch before we land? Four? Five? Well, I was going to start with Naughty Hill, of course. And then I was thinking maybe Bridesmaids? Oh, have you seen Train to Busan? It’s Korean, it’s about a zombie apocalypse on a train. Okay, yeah, I’m down.

Shall we?

Where were you, Alex? Why do you care? We’re just roommates after all, right? Wait a second.

Okay, please do not tell me that you were with Kristen DiMera. Please do not tell me that. Okay, I don’t know why any of that would matter. It’s completely irrelevant who I was with, where I was, and why I was there. Because it’s none of your business. Oh my God. Oh my God, you were with her? Really? How could you do that?

How could you do that after everything that she’s done to me? After everything that two timing bitch has put me through? Okay, I’m not gonna get into this with you, Teresa. After all, this is on you. How the hell is this on me? Because you’re the one who said you wanted to keep it strictly platonic between us, and you got it.

So, my love life is my business, and my business alone. Fine, yes, I did. I did say that. And so technically, I shouldn’t feel angry or jealous, but I do, I do feel all those things. Theresa.

Look, I, uh, I have to shower and run to the office. I have a huge meeting with London in the morning. Maybe we can pick up on this a little bit after. Yeah?

Alex, it’s me. I’m, um, just lying here in my bed, thinking about you and your gorgeous body. And, uh, how you sort of just take control. Well, anyway, I had a marvelous time. And I think that you and I are on the same page. Our plan didn’t go as we hoped, but I think it went a whole lot better.

I’d like to see you again, Alex. Again, and again. And again.

Let’s go. Dad? Yeah? I’m really happy you’re coming on this field trip with me. You know what? I’m happy to do anything with you. Anytime. Anytime. Let’s go see some fish. You’re obviously very upset by this. I think you need to call John. You need to have a conversation and let him know your take on this. On the, on the accusation from Constantine that you’re responsible for the loss of his daughter, which I know is not true.

And I think in your heart of hearts, you know it’s not true. Why don’t you just give him a call and clear the air?

I guess I can do that

Given john enough space I could Call him and let him know how I feel about all this

I am looking for steve. Is he around? No. He took the morning off to spend a little time with his family. I don’t know. Then, uh, I shall be on my way. That sounds good.

Don’t let Steve know.

There you are, my pawn. Now listen very closely to every word I say. Because I have an extremely important mission for you.

[ Dramatic music ]

Deacon: We gotta get over there right now.

Finn: Look, we don’t know what’s in that building.

Deacon: Sheila! Sheila could be over there.

Finn: You’re sure you saw that woman go into the building?

Tom: Oh, absolutely. I never forget a face.

Deacon: You heard screaming coming from over there?

Tom: Until it stopped. Hear a lot of weird things around here.

Finn: Do you know what’s in that building?

Tom: Beats me. It’s been vacant since before I was here. I was told to stay away from that building. It’d be wise to do the same.

[ Gunshots ]

[ Tires screeching ] Well, good luck, fellas. You’re gonna need it.

[ Police siren wailing ]

Deacon: We doing this?

Finn: We don’t have a choice. There’s a chance that sheila’s in that building, we need to go.

Deacon: Yeah. Let’s go.

Ridge: Well, I gotta tell you, I’m impressed with hope and her team. They didn’t miss a beat with thomas taking a little time off.

Brooke: Hopefully, it stays that way.

Ridge: Zende, rj, they’re doing a great job. What a great team they are. And, um, I don’t know. Maybe that is the future of forrester. What do you think, steffy? Hey. Hi.

Steffy: Oh, hi. Yes, um…

Ridge: Where’d you go?

Steffy: I– I was thinking about finn. I mean, he was… he was pretty quiet last night and this morning. We didn’t have time to get into it, I, uh… I just hope he’s okay.

Liam: Deacon is usually here for the lunch rush.

Bill: Were you hoping to get our meals comped by your ex-lowlife-in-law?

Liam: Maybe if I were alone.

Bill: Meaning not with me.

Liam: Yeah. Yeah, the guy who tried to lure sheila to prison?

Bill: Prison was way too good for that animal. Not to mention a waste of taxpayer money keeping her locked up. Definitely better off dead.

Liam: Well, on the bright side, we get to come here as often as we want without running into her.

Bill: Mm. I’ll drink to that.

[ Bill chuckles ]

Liam: Did you get a chance to look over that contract I sent you?

Bill: Yeah. How’d you come to agree to those terms?

Liam: Oh, well, it’s this new trick I’ve been trying. I call it honesty and plain dealing.

[ Bill pretends to vomit ] The truth is, they were already psyched about the multimedia strategy. All I had to do was convince them it ain’t gonna come cheap.

Bill: Great job.

Liam: Well, thank you. I guess I’M… I don’t know. My priorities are narrowing. I’m just focused on my kids and my career right now.

Bill: Glad to hear it.

Liam: Yeah. So are steffy and hope. Waffling back and forth between the two of them all those years, it wasn’t good for them, but it also wasn’t good for me. And I… I don’t want to do that anymore.

Bill: I’ll drink to that, too.

Ridge: So, you are worried about finn.

Steffy: Just a weird feeling.

Brooke: Because he’s been quiet?

Steffy: Like there’s something on his mind.

Ridge: I know. We all have that, right? Is it… did you ask him about it?

Steffy: I just figured it was, you know, work or a patient, but I can’t stop thinking about it. I always know when something’s off with finn, even when I have no idea what it is.

[ Deacon coughs ]

Finn: Tried looking up the address in here, but no reception. I don’t know–

Deacon: Sheila!

Finn: What this place is.

Deacon: Sheila! I’m gonna open this.

[ Deacon grunts ] Sheila!

Finn: She’s not here.

Deacon: We’re going to search everything inch of this place.

Finn: Let’s go.

Deacon: Sheila!

Finn: Sheila?

Deacon: Sheila! (Angie) tobacco companies

Bill: Listen, I am all for your newfound focus on work and family.

Liam: Yeah, you are. And it’s good for spencer’s bottom line, if nothing else.

Bill: Well, it is good for you personally as well, liam. And that’s just as important.

Liam: Yeah, but not just me. It’s good for hope, too. She’s doing the same thing in her own life.

Bill: Yeah. Interesting coincidence, isn’t it?

Liam: Yeah, interesting, maybe. Surprising, no. I mean, not if you look at the state our lives were in when our marriage ended. We’re both just spinning our wheels, right? We’re both looking for a new– a new purpose, identity.

Bill: So, do you think this, um, newfound shared perspective could mean you guys getting back together?

Liam: I don’t– we’re just not thinking about that right now.

Bill: Look, um, I– I know that you want to stop this waffling back and forth–

Liam: Yeah.

Bill: Between hope and steffy and I totally get that, but, um, given that you you seem to be sharing the same mindset with hope, don’t you think that down the road, it could mean something else?

Liam: Okay, look, listen, I– you know, at this stage in my life, I know better than to say never. But right now, right now, my priority is just being the best father I can be. That means I’m prioritizing beth and kelly.

Bill: Followed closely by spencer publications.

Liam: Look at this face. Is this not a dedicated face? I’m dedicated.

[ Bill laughs ]

Bill: You are dedicated. And I think it’s just amazing. I mean, it shows a lot of maturity and self awareness on your part.

Liam: Thanks, dad.

Bill: You clearly are following the example set by your old man.

[ Liam laughs ]

Liam: I will be serious for a moment and say that it means a lot to me that you’ve always had my back.

Bill: Yeah, well, I always will. Now, listen. You know, you can beat yourself up about this waffling thing, but it’s not how I see it. I can’t hate on you for falling in love with two incredible women. Let me remind you that they loved you right back. And for good reason.

Steffy: I don’t want to make this more than it is.

Ridge: You’re not. Look, if something seems off with finn, then…

Brooke: But he would tell you if something was wrong.

Steffy: Yeah. I don’t want to read too much into it, actually. No, we’ve been, uh, we’ve been good. We’ve been talking and sharing our feelings. It’s just last night and this morning, he seemed… quiet. Sitting on the couch, staring at– at nothing. It’s– it’s probably nothing. Like I said, it– it really is– I’m sure it’s– it’s work. What do you think?

Ridge: I’m– I’m sure that’s what it is.

Steffy: It’s just the last time I had this feeling… it had something to do with sheila.

Finn: Sheila?

Deacon: Sheila?

Finn: Smells awful in here.

Deacon: Yeah, it does. It’s like something died. Sheila!

Finn: Sheila! You heard what that guy said, the building’s been empty for a long time. No idea what’s in here.

Deacon: Sheila, it’s deacon! Where are you? Can you hear me?

Finn: Sheila! Hey, whoa, what’s that over there?

[ Mouse squeaking ]

Deacon: Place is probably crawling with rats. I hate rats. Can you hold this for me? Thank you.

[ Deacon grunts ]

Finn: Sheila! Sheila, where are you?

Bill: All right, I want you to listen to your dad. Having two families is a blessing, not something to feel guilty about. You call it waffling, but that’s not how I see it.

Liam: Yeah, but you’re a little biased.

Bill: No, what I see is a man who has never shirked his responsibilities. You’ve always stood up and been there for the people that you love. It– it wasn’t indecision, liam. You just couldn’t be everywhere you wanted to be all at once.

Liam: Ah… I really appreciate that that’s your perspective, but the fact is, it wasn’t fair to hope or steffy and I respect them too much to keep doing this, to keep… choosing between them and then changing my mind. I’ll give you this. Not a day goes by I’m not grateful for the families I’ve created with them. So, I must have done something right.

Steffy: I hate even having to say her name. I wish we could just forget about sheila.

Ridge: Wish granted. Let’s forget about her. I’ve forgotten about her. We’ve forgotten about her. It’s done.

Brooke: What about finn? Has he forgotten about her? I mean, you said he’s been quiet.

Steffy: It’s– it’s probably nothing,

Brooke: But your gut says otherwise.

Steffy: There’s no way this could be about sheila.

Ridge: No, it can’T. You know why? Because sheila is dead. She’s gone. Out of our lives forever.

[ Creaking ]

Deacon: What the hell was that? Sheila, can you hear us?

Finn: Sheila!

Deacon: Look, if this is the place, she’s been here for weeks. What kind of shape is she in?

Finn: Look, we can’t give up.

[ Deacon sighs ]

Deacon: I’m not giving up, I’m just being realistic.

Finn: Sheila! You hear us?

Deacon: Sheila! There’s a door.

[ Door lock clicking ]

[ Deacon sighs ] It’s locked. Um, would you stand over there for a second?

[ Deacon grunting ]

Finn: Whoa, you see that?

Deacon: What?

Finn: There’s something down there. Look. Give damaged hair deep repair.

Bill: I applaud your good intentions, and I support them. But liam, being mister happy single guy might be tougher than you think.

Liam: It’s not that tough. What, I don’t look happy to you? I could be happy.

Bill: No, you look great. You look great. But every time we get together, inevitably, the conversation turns to hope and steffy. I mean, you have to have noticed that, right?

Liam: Oh, uh–

Bill: And, look, I’m not hating on you. I’m not giving you a hard time.

Liam: No, no, but you’re right. You’re right, and it’s just… it’s just– it’s ’cause I want to change, right? I want to do better. I want to start treating both hope and steffy with the respect they deserve.

Bill: Well, you do that by appreciating both of them for who they are, right? I mean, you’re talking about two accomplished, intelligent, beautiful women. Great mothers.

Liam: Yeah.

Bill: And hope is just a very kind and forgiving person.

Liam: Yeah. Steffy is, too.

Bill: Yeah, she is. She is. And, well, steffy brought something different to your life.

Liam: Oh, no. Yeah, no doubt. I mean, a sense of excitement and adventure. I mean, every– every day was a new experience with steffy. I’m– listen, I’m grateful to have spent even a portion of my life with steffy. And further, I’m grateful I get to stay in her life now, just as co parents for kelly. Right? But… steffy’s totally committed to finn. And now with sheila gone, nothing’s gonna tear those two apart.

Ridge: There’s no question what happened that night. Sheila’s dead. She’s gone. And I know that still plays with your emotions a lot.

Steffy: Yeah, it’s a hard memory to shake.

Ridge: I believe that.

Steffy: I’m just glad she’s gone. God, I was so jumpy that night.

[ Gushing wind ] It was because of the storm. And then I heard a noise, and I…

[ Door creaking ] I went to check it out, and that’s when the power went out. Went to go look for some candles… and I saw the shadow. Oh, god. My heart stopped. It was her. And I told her to get out. And then she reached in her pocket, and… I thought she had a gun. I thought she was gonna shoot me again. So, I went to grab the knife. And she lunged at me, and that’s when it was over. I remember looking down and just seeing… seeing her there. And– and the blood. Realizing I… I killed her. Sheila carter was dead.

Ridge: Come here.

Steffy: Oh, god.

Finn: Sheila! Sheila!

Deacon: Hey, listen. Let’s split up. I’m gonna go that way, you go that way, all right?

Finn: Okay.

[ Heart beating ]

Sheila: I love you so much, finn.

Steffy: Sheila’s a monster.

Sheila: I love you so much, finn. I’m your first home, your first everything.

Steffy: She shot us. Sheila’s a monster, finn.

[ Heart beating faster ]

Finn: Deacon, hurry up! Get in here! Deacon!

Deacon: What do you got?

[ Deacon grunts ]

Finn: My god…

Deacon: Sheila!

Finn: Mom… mom!

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Adam: Hey.

Chelsea: I just got a call from the doctor. Connor wants to talk to us.

Adam: Yeah, I, uh, I got the same message.

Chelsea: Yeah, this is a big step.

Adam: Yeah, considering a week ago he didn’t wanna have any communication with us at all.

Chelsea: Right, um, but we can’t make this bigger than it is.

Adam: I’m not.

Chelsea: Right, well, you tend to do that. Sometimes, adam, you know, you project things the way you want them to be without realizing this is a process. You know, this is just the beginning. We have to tread carefully so connor doesn’t tune us out.

Adam: And are we now talking about me or are we talking about you?

Chelsea: Both. We can’t screw this up. There’s too much at stake.

Nikki: Oh, jack! I’m so happy that harrison is home. Is he okay?

Jack: Doctors checked him out. Physically, he’s fine. Time will tell about everything else.

Nikki: Poor little baby.

Jack: He keeps calling jordan “the mean lady” and “the witch.” Not that we’re encouraging him to talk about it.

Nikki: Oh! It’s lucky we got him back when we did.

Jack: How are you doing? Any news on claire?

Nikki: Uh, no, but victoria got a call last night that she thought could’ve been claire.

Jack: Maybe they found her?

Nikki: Unfortunately, no.

Jack: Oh, this is agony. I am so sorry.

Nikki: Yeah, so am I. For ever thinking that claire had anything to do with this.

Michael: So that was the one word you could make out?

Cole: “Mom.”

Michael: And you’re sure the call was from claire?

[ Victoria sighs ]

Victoria: It was muffled, but it had to be her.

Michael: And no chance this was something arranged by jordan before her demise?

Victoria: Michael, it was claire.

Victor: It wasn’t from a landline. And they’re checking all the cell towers right now. It’s gonna take some time.

Victoria: Well, that’s time that we don’t have, dad. What if claire’s hurt and that’s why she didn’t call us back?

Victor: Sweetheart–

Victoria: We have to find her. We have to do something.

(“Holiday road”)

Announcer: Additional

Adam: You’re right. And it’s good that you’re reminding both of us that we need to move slowly. But I–

[ Chelsea groans ]

Chelsea: I hate when you say “but.” It makes me very nervous.

Adam: I was just gonna say, chelsea, that I could use any good news right now.

Chelsea: Of course. So could I. What are you doing?

Adam: I’m setting up the video call.

Chelsea: Adam, can you just wait one second? I think that we should go over the guidelines the doctor suggested. Things to avoid talking about. Words that could be triggering for connor.

Adam: Okay. Gotta have the rules.

Chelsea: There are these things called reassurances we’re supposed to avoid, which seems really weird because as a parent, all you wanna do is reassure your child. But the doctor says that they will only feed and validate his fears, so we have to avoid that.

Adam: Mm-hmm. Okay. I got it. No reassuring. Mm-hmm.

Chelsea: I’m sorry. Am I boring you, adam?

Adam: No. You’re just telling me things that I already know.

Chelsea: Okay. Then I’ll repeat them to myself. Because I’m crawling out of my skin, and I would appreciate it if you didn’t get offended by every damn thing I say.

Adam: I’m sorry. Okay? You’re right.

Chelsea: We are both nervous. We both have a lot at stake, okay? But I have to know that we’re gonna be a team. Adam, we have to be.

Adam: We are a team. And just so you know, I’m not taking offense. It’s just– it’s my way, you know?

Chelsea: Yeah. Your defense mechanism is anger. Mine is, um, quiet panic and anxiety. None of which are any good for our son.

Adam: And I hear you, chelsea. This– it’s all about connor. Okay? We have the rules, and we can do this. You ready?

Chelsea: Let’s, uh– let’s make the call.

Cole: Well, there could be a whole other explanation for claire not calling back. Maybe the phone died. It’s possible, isn’t it?

Victoria: But cole, she sounded panicked and desperate.

Michael: Do you think claire knows about jordan?

Victor: I doubt it. We kept the press out of it.

Michael: Then she could be unaware that harrison’s been rescued?

Cole: What are you getting at?

Michael: I’m fond of claire. You know that. I’ve defended her in the past. But this is a girl who’s spent her entire life doing jordan’s bidding.

Victoria: Are you saying that she still is?

Michael: No, I didn’t say that.

Victoria: Well, it certainly sounds like you’re implying that, michael.

Michael: I’m merely laying out possibilities. If claire still believes jordan has harrison, then that phone call last night could’ve been a smokescreen, could’ve been part of a plan.

Cole: To what end?

Michael: To divide us, to distract us.

Victoria: Didn’t you hear what harrison said about jordan hurting claire?

Michael: Again, that could’ve been jordan and claire putting on an act for an impressionable little boy.

Cole: Wait a minute. Are you serious right now? Because this whole train of thought is a distraction. It’s a complete waste of our time.

Michael: I’m simply trying to manage expectations.

Cole: We don’t need you to manage anything, okay? Our daughter is missing. She could be in terrible danger. And the only thing I wanna hear from anyone right now is how do we get her back?

Michael: All right. I’m sorry. Sometimes my lawyerly skill at arguing both ends of an issue are– well, it’s inappropriate. Please forgive me.

Victor: Let’s calm down. All we know is that claire’s alive. That is more than we knew before.

Victoria: But where? Where, dad? The one person who might be able to tell us is dead.

Jack: Yeah, I’m sorry I doubted claire, too, but given her background and who she was raised with, I had trouble believing she could turn everything around so quickly.

Nikki: Yeah, it was hard for all of us, except for victoria. She just always knew.

Jack: Mothers and daughters.

Nikki: Yeah, I’m sure victoria wishes her mother could be more helpful.

Jack: Wait, why do you say things like that?

Nikki: I don’t know. I just feel particularly useless.

Jack: I guarantee you, victoria does not see you that way.

Nikki: No. She sees me as a fragile flower that needs to be watched all the time. She knows I’ve been drinking again. I denied it, of course, but she knows. I just hate that I am so damn weak. I’m so damn weak!

Jack: You are one of the strongest people I have ever known.

Nikki: I certainly don’t feel that way right now.

Jack: Because you’ve just been put through hell, nikki. You have endured things that would bring most people to their knees, and you are still standing. And piling more blame and stress on yourself is not the answer.

Nikki: The stress I can handle. It’s the guilt that’s overwhelming.

Jack: The guilt? What guilt?

Nikki: Jordan. All of this.

Jack: Why would any part of you blame yourself for what jordan did?

Nikki: Because none of it should have happened, jack. Claire and harrison would not have been kidnapped if it weren’t for me.

Summer: What do you mean, grandma? What did you do? When my doctor gave me breztri for my copd Harry & david makes mother’s day easy. Share a gift, made with love, with the mom in your life. Choose from hundreds of stunning baskets and towers. It’s the perfect way to say thank you – for everything. Harry & david. Life is a gift. Share more. At tj maxx, you can afford to turn your closet

Chelsea: Hi! Connor, it’s so good to see your face.

Adam: Hey, buddy. How’s it going?

Connor: It’s going okay, I guess.

Adam: What have you been up to? I mean, have you made any friends? Is the, uh– the therapy working out?

Connor: Maybe. I don’t know.

Adam: Well, you must know if you’re feeling better, right? I mean, why don’t you tell us about the doctor? Do you feel he’s someone that you can talk to?

Chelsea: Hey, you know what? Your dad is anxious to know all these things because he loves you and misses you so much. We both do. That’s why we have all these questions. But you just take your time. Whenever you’re ready to tell us, we’re here to listen.

Jack: Your grandmother feels horrible about what has happened to harrison, but she is in no way responsible for the actions of a psychopath.

Nikki: Thank you for trying to protect me, jack. But there’s more to it than that. None of this would have happened if I had made different choices.

Summer: What do you mean? What choices?

Nikki: When jordan took that poison in front of us, claire asked if we should even bother saving her life.

Summer: Claire was willing to let her aunt die?

Nikki: Oh, yes. I mean, she has known her aunt her whole life. She knows how evil she is and all the things that jordan did to her and to many other people. Claire didn’t think that anyone else should have to suffer like that.

Summer: I– I guess I’m surprised to hear that.

Nikki: Because you thought that claire was involved in harrison’s kidnapping. That crossed my mind as well. But I now know that claire was once again jordan’s victim. And I set it all into motion by calling 911 and let her live.

Summer: Grandma, I– I don’t understand. After everything that jordan did to you, did to our family, why– why would her life mean anything to you?

Nikki: Trust me, I’ve asked myself that so many times. And in the end, I simply couldn’t let her die in front of us. And letting her go out on her own terms seemed like letting her win. I wanted her to face her punishment. I– I didn’t know that she was going to escape again and then bring more chaos to our family. But if you’re looking for someone to blame, blame me. I’m sorry, summer. You have every reason to hate me for this.

Victor: Look, you all, jordan is exactly where she should be. We’ll find claire and she will be where she should be. But we won’t give up.

Victoria: I’m not giving up. I’m just tired of sitting around here doing nothing, waiting for the phone to ring.

[ Victoria sighs ] Look, cole and I were talking on the way up here, and we want to go to the motel where jordan held harrison.

Victor: But sweetheart, the cops have combed through that hotel. Up and down. They found nothing that leads to claire.

Victoria: Dad, maybe they didn’t know what to look for. They don’t know claire. We do.

[ Victor exhales ]

Victor: All right. You two go down there, do what you have to do, and, uh, I’ll see to it that no one interferes with you.

Cole: Thank you, victor.

Victoria: Thank you.

Michael: You’ll run that by me again, victor?

Victor: Run what by you again?

Michael: How exactly did jordan die? My mental health was better.

Chelsea: Why don’t you tell us how you’re adjusting to the new place?

Connor: Well, the main doctor’s pretty cool. She gets it, you know?

Chelsea: Gets what, honey?

Connor: My moods, stuff like that. Things she calls disassociations.

Adam: Whoa, that’s a– that’s a mouthful.

Connor: Like, sometimes I don’t remember things, and I get all mad at myself and frustrated. But the doctor says that’s just my brain going, “nope, not going there.”

Chelsea: So it’s– it’s kind of like you get overwhelmed?

Connor: Yeah, but more. The doc says that some people with ocd have that, so they’re teaching me to slow down and recognize when it happens and not to get so impatient with myself.

Adam: Mmm.

Chelsea: Yeah, but, you know, that– that happens to me too sometimes. It’s like my mind races ahead, and I suddenly forget where I’m even going.

Connor: Really?

Chelsea: Yeah. Oh, yeah. So I just have to slow down and regroup. I– I think it’s called, um, staying in the moment.

Connor: And just dealing with it no matter how hard it is.

Chelsea: Exactly.

Adam: I mean, I– I don’t know, I– I– I get that, yes, but does everything have to be a struggle? I mean, isn’t it okay to sometimes, you know, check out when the world is coming at you at 100 miles an hour?

Connor: No, dad, you can’T.

Adam: Okay, well, I just meant that–

Connor: The doctors told me that it’s called reassuring. It’s like saying the ocd part of my brain is doing all the right things. Like it’s normal. But it’s not. It just makes the ocd dig in harder.

Adam: You see, there I go again. Connor, there– there’s just– a lot of this stuff you’re gonna have to explain to me, because, um, your hard-headed old man already thinks he knows everything. So whenever I open my big mouth, just go like this, okay?

Connor: I can do that.

Jack: I’m sure summer doesn’t blame you for what happened. She holds one person responsible. Jordan.

Nikki: Is that right, summer?

Jack: You– you know what? I think you and I should get out of here and get to a meeting.

Nikki: Uh, I wish I could, but I have another appointment.

Jack: More important than a meeting?

Nikki: I’m meeting with lauren. We have a lot of newman media work to do.

Jack: Your family has been through hell, nikki. Claire is still missing. Work can wait. Come on.

Nikki: But– but it helps me to not think about everything, and I desperately need that, even if it’s just for an hour. I– I will go to a meeting afterwards. I promise.

Jack: Okay. Okay.

Nikki: It’s okay to blame me, honey. I blame myself.

Summer: No. Jack’s right. Jordan is the only person responsible.

Nikki: Thank you for that. Please give harrison a hug from me. I’m– I’m so grateful that he’s home.

Summer: I will.

Jack: I’ll walk you out.

Summer: I’ll see myself out.

[ Door clicks open ]

Victoria: You know, I’m trying, but I just cannot wrap my brain around this. How someone could terrorize a child.

Cole: This is the same woman who raised ours.

Victoria: That makes me sick just thinking about it. What is it?

Cole: Nothing.

Victoria: You can tell me. It’s okay.

Cole: Remember back at the house? When you brought up losing baby eve? Claire? All those years ago. It just took me right back there. And I remember being sad, heartbroken, just like you. We never had the chance to be with her. We never knew her. It was almost like she wasn’t real. But she’s very real. And I would literally walk the length of the earth to bring her back. I would– I would exchange my life for hers in a heartbeat. And never, ever, have I had that feeling… about anyone.

Victoria: It’s called being a parent.

Cole: Yeah. I know that now.

Victoria: Sometimes it, you know, can feel like it’s a bit too much.

Cole: Claire is the greatest gift that I’ve ever received in my life. And when we find her, I’m gonna bring her home. I’m gonna hold her tight. And I’m gonna tell her that nobody’s ever gonna hurt her again. That her father will always be there to protect her.

[ Cole sighs ] For people who feel limited

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Connor: I’m playing

soccer again.

Chelsea: Oh.

Adam: Yeah? That’s great.

Connor: I’m pretty bad at it

’cause I haven’t played

in a while, but my friend mike

likes to run drills,

so I figured, “why not?”

Chelsea: Yeah, you– you made a new friend?

Connor: Yeah.

Mike’s pretty cool.

Adam: And is his– his treatment like yours?

Connor: Privacy, dad.

Adam: Yes, of course. Uh, well, thank you for the heads up.

Chelsea: Yeah, it sounds like you’re in the right place.

Connor: It’s all right here.

I just want to get better

soon and come home.

Adam: And we want that too. You know, we miss you, and we love you so much.

Chelsea: So, so much.

Adam: And we promise that we will take our cues from you, and from the doctors.

Chelsea: Yeah, we will listen.

Connor: I love you guys too.

Anyway, I better get going.

Chelsea: So soon?

Connor: Yeah, I’ve got class

in a few minutes.

Chelsea: Oh, okay, well, we understand.

Adam: All right, well, um, this was great, you know? Thank you.

Chelsea: We’ll talk to you soon, okay?

[ Chelsea sighs ] Okay, well, I have to email the doctor about these reassurances because I don’t really get it. So, if we tell connor that things are going to get better, that’s not a good thing, that’s going to stress him out even more? I just don’t really understand. Don’t, adam.

Adam: Don’t what?

Chelsea: Go wherever it is you’re going right now. It’s not going to help.

[ Chelsea sighs ]

Adam: Is this what his life is going to be like? Worrying about things like– like reassurances and disassociations? I mean, he shouldn’t even have a word for that.

Chelsea: If it helps him understand what he’s dealing with, I don’t care what they call it.

Adam: God, just taking the same brutal hits over and over.

Chelsea: Until he gets better. I mean, that’s what the whole exposure and response prevention thing is all about.

Adam: Yes, but the disassociations–

Chelsea: What, adam?

Adam: I went through it, chelsea. When I was a kid, I blocked things out, too. I erased the memory of seeing a man die right in front of me because I thought that I was responsible for it. And now my son is going through his own version of the same damn thing. So, is my life all he has to look forward to? I mean, is he going to grow up angry? Is he going to struggle to fit in? Is he ever going to believe that he deserves to be loved?

Chelsea: Adam, stop. This is an illness we don’t understand. And it’s just the beginning. We are going to be hearing things about it that are difficult for us to hear, that make us afraid. But we– we have to be ready for it. We have to stay calm and– and be strong and be unified.

Adam: Okay, well, that is a very nice speech, chelsea. But you are forgetting one very important thing. We are connor’s parents. He shares our dna, so everything that we are or have been is passed down to him. And that scares the hell out of me. And I am sorry, but you can’t convince me that you’re not being eaten up by it too.

Victor: I told you already. As I and my security team approached the motel, that jordan woman saw us coming. She panicked, she ran away, tried to cross the gamewood bridge, she slipped and fell into the river.

Michael: But no body was discovered.

Victor: Well, they are still searching. What are you getting at?

Michael: You know, well, as your attorney, I just want to make sure there is nothing that could come back to negatively impact my favorite client.

Victor: I told you exactly how it happened. It was a fortunate accident. Why can’t you just let it go?

Michael: I’d like to. I– I really would. But knowing you and working with you for all these years, I’ve developed a pretty good sense of who you are and how you operate, and right now, my senses are screaming that there’s a lot of this story you haven’t told me.

Cole: I haven’t seen

one of those in a while.

Victoria: Oh, my god.

Cole: Sweet, huh? You know, my mother had one just like this. She collected them.

Victoria: Uh, I think it’s hideous, actually.

Cole: Well, that’s the whole point. The creepier, the better.

Victoria: Wait a minute. Mom mentioned jordan tormenting her with a doll at the lake house. Um, do you think it could be like this one?

Cole: Hang on a sec. What is this? There’s something– there’s something inside here. Oooh! I can’t wait for this family getaway!

Cole: [Indistinct]

Victoria: Yeah, thank god.

[Indistinct] What could these possibly be for?

Cole: Well, they have to be just something important. Otherwise, jordan wouldn’t have taken the trouble to hide them like that.

Victoria: Maybe they could lead us to claire.

Cole: Yes, yes.

Victoria: But we still don’t know where she is, cole.

Cole: We have to keep looking, I mean, the answers have to be here somewhere, I know it.

[ Footsteps approaching ]

Lauren: You must be exhausted.

[ Nikki sighs ]

Nikki: I am, it’s been a brutal last few days.

Lauren: I’m so sorry, nikki.

[ Nikki sighs ]

Nikki: We get through one nightmare and then there’s another one around the corner. I feel like I’m going to wake up and everything will be normal, you know, and claire will be safe.

Lauren: I wish that for you. You deserve it. And in the meantime, honey, you need to rest.

Nikki: If it were only that easy.

Lauren: I know it’s difficult. But I’m really worried about you, my friend.

Nikki: Thank you. And you’re right. I desperately need some sleep.

Lauren: All right, well, you know, forget about our meeting. Just turn around, go home, and get some sleep. I’ll text victor, and tell him you’re on the way.

Nikki: Oh, no, don’t do that. He’s putting all of his energy into finding claire. I don’t want to distract him.

Lauren: Okay. All right.

Nikki: Well, thank you for meeting me.

Lauren: You promise you’re going to go straight home, right?

Nikki: Where else would I go?

Victor: Michael, on my honor and our friendship, I am in no way responsible for that jordan woman’s death. Okay?

Michael: Now, that actually sounded sincere. Thank you.

Victor: Then let it be. All right? We now need to focus on finding my granddaughter.

Michael: Well, we’ve already got the whole town looking for her, and nothing’s turned up, she could be anywhere.

Victor: That means we need to double our efforts. I’ve got to be honest with you. The thought has occurred to me… that time may be running out for claire.

Chelsea: Of course this is upsetting to me. It’s agony, watching connor suffer the way he has, but I can’t give in to it. He needs me too much.

Adam: Then it will consume you.

Chelsea: Only if I let it.

Adam: Listen to me, chelsea.

Chelsea: And I’m not going to let it.

Adam: Why won’t you just talk to me?

Chelsea: I am talking to you.

Adam: Yes, with a bunch of buzzwords and to-do lists. Nothing about what’s really inside. Nothing about how you feel. Who would understand about any of that except me? This is our son. If we can’t talk to each other–

Chelsea: I’m terrified, adam. I’m terrified. But I’m afraid if I fall into that well of– of shame and guilt, I won’t be able to crawl out. I want to kill this thing that’s hurting our son. I want to destroy it. And of course I blame myself. I blame myself for my– for my weakness and my illness. And I– and I hate myself. And I’m not strong enough to stop this.

Adam: Yeah, well, I– I was not there for a big part of connor’s life. And when I was there, I created chaos. Do you know what I was thinking when he said he would just forget big chunks of time? I was thinking, yeah, I know, because that was me too.

[ Chelsea sniffles ]

Chelsea: I don’t know. Of course, I’ve had dark, intrusive thoughts. And there were moments that I hated myself. But it’s not about what you’ve been through or what I’ve been through. Connor is dealing with something different. And even though we can’t fully understand it, we still feel fully responsible.

Adam: Well, we’re not even sure if we’re what made it happen.

Chelsea: Adam… even if we didn’t cause it, does that even matter? Our son is still suffering.

Adam: I just wanna tell him that everything’s gonna be okay. I want to tell him that he’s gonna have a perfect, you know, average, utterly boring, normal life. But us telling him that everything’s gonna be okay is just us giving him our wishful thinking.

Chelsea: Yeah, I don’t think he wants to hear that from us.

[ Chelsea sighs ]

Adam: Yeah, well, I wouldn’t mind being reassured every once in a while.

Chelsea: Yeah. [Sighs] Yeah, neither would I.

[ Chuckles wryly ]

Adam: Well, maybe when things get tense or complicated or just plain scary, we could reassure each other.

Chelsea: I’d like that very much. Struggling with the highs and lows of bipolar 1?

Chelsea: [ Sighs ] So, how did you know?

Adam: Know what?

Chelsea: [ Sighs ] That I needed to… unload.

Adam: [ Sighs ] Oh. Well, I guess because I’ve been needing to do the same thing. You know, he’s such an incredible kid. I just wish that all this–

Chelsea: I know. And I’m glad that we can be there for each other, talk to each other in a way that’s, you know, different than before.

Adam: It’s a better way.

Chelsea: Like as grown-ups?

Adam: Well, I was going to say friends.

Chelsea: That, too. You know this is just the beginning, right? Connor’s going to have his ups and downs, and so are we.

Adam: Hmm. I’m not going anywhere.

Chelsea: Good. Neither am I.

[ Chelsea sniffling ]

Jack: Hey. How’s harrison doing?

Summer: Um, he’s still a little bit more clingy than usual, but that’s to be expected. I– I told him that we could do all of his favorite things today, and that made him smile.

Jack: That’s a start.

Summer: Yeah.

Jack: Listen, now that your grandmother is gone, how do you really feel about her letting jordan live?

Summer: My son… has bolted awake from nightmares twice since he’s been home. Jack, he might be scarred for life. What am I supposed to say when my grandma tells me that this could have all been avoided? I wish she had let jordan die. And if that makes me a terrible person, I don’t care. It’s the truth.

Jack: I’m not here to argue with you. But I have a favor to ask. Could you please not tell nikki that? Look, she’s in a very fragile state right now, and I’m worried knowing that might take her over the edge. Could you do that for me?

Summer: I don’t– I don’t plan on saying anything. I will always love my grandma. And I will always wish that she had let jordan die when she had the chance.

Nikki: [ Exhales deeply ]

Cole: Vic, can you think of any other place where jordan might have stayed?

Victoria: No.

Cole: Well, there– there has to be something here that’s gonna help us out. I mean, there has to be a map, an address, there’s something.

Victoria: Wait a minute.

Cole: What?

Victoria: I– you know, I’ve been racking my brain for the last five minutes trying to figure out if I’m imagining this or if it’s real. And it’s real, cole. I’m sure of it.

Cole: What’s real? What are you talking about?

Victoria: The keys! I recognize them. I’ve seen them before. I think I know where we have to go.

[ Exhaohh. Ooh! Hi, there. Okay. Uh… uh, we are gonna take a little breather.

[ Exhales sharply ] Ah! But if anybody asks why we stopped working out, I’m going to blame this squarely on you.

[ Inhales sharply ] Whew! Okay. Kristina. Are you okay? Actually, that depends on you. Thank you for taking the time to meet with me. Whoa. That was some serious corporate speak.

[ Both laugh ] I’m sorry. You’re right. I guess I’m, like, kind of stuck in the zone. Try again. Hi, willow. Hi, drew. So nice of you to stop by! I was happy to! It gives me the chance to tell you in person that amelia loved her first swim lesson. Ah! You see?! You were right. I knew it! Aw, that makes me so happy. Okay. So amelia did well, but how did mom do? Well, I was nervous at first, but once I saw how comfortable she was, I was — I was fine. That’s awesome.

[ Sighs ] Hey! You beat me here? Amazing what running a few red lights can do. I-I’m kidding. I even drove the speed limit. No one drives the speed limit. Truth. So, uh, what’s with this mystery meeting? Yeah, I’ve never been asked to sit in on aurora business before. Should I be scared? No. No. But I hope you’ll be excited. Do you

happen to know if jason morgan’s here? Oh. I’m sorry, sir. I can’t disclose who’s made reservations at the restaurant. No. He wouldn’t be a patron. Uh, hi. Can I help you with something? Carly, hi. Hi again.

[ Laughs ] How’s your head? Uh, it’s still attached. I see. So do you need something?

[ Stammers ] I — since I’m staying here, I thought I would meet the new owner of the hotel. Well, you already know jason, and if you’re looking for the new owner, you found her. Anna: Hi. Jason: Hey. Thanks for meeting me. Yeah. Of course.

[ Sighs ] I want to debrief you. I think if we are going to figure out who’s running pikeman and shut them down… there’s a fair amount of things you need to know. Such as? Well, firstly, I think valentin is involved. In pikeman? Big-time. There must be some sort of mistake. The only visitor I ever have is my mother, and she was just here. Hello, nikolas. Right this way.

I just had a meeting with a nonprofit who wants us to run their pr. Okay. What kind of pr were they thinking of? Well, they want aurora to help raise awareness for their cause by featuring them in our publications and in our media, but the reason that you’re here is because they’re looking for a spokesperson. Oh. Uh, sure. I could help you research some candidates. I think the spokesperson should be you. Me? You sound surprised. Because I am. Drew, I have zero experience with nonprofits or — or being a spokesperson for anything. But this cause, in particular, you do have experience with. This probably should’ve been my first question, but what exactly does this nonprofit do? Okay. The new tomorrow institute helps people find bone-marrow donors. T-they also coordinate umbilical-cord blood donations. So, I think it’s safe to say that the transplant process isn’t very well understood by the general public, and this organization is really trying to change that. And when they said that they were — they were looking for somebody to personalize their message, I immediately thought of you, a leukemia survivor in large part due to a bone-marrow donation. Willow, you got the — the power to make a huge impact here. Well, I shouldn’t say “owner.” I’m a co-owner with olivia quartermaine. Just like old times. Uh, yep.

[ Laughs ] I’m happy for you. Really? That’s not exactly the vibe I’m getting from you. No. No, no, no. I am. I remember how you talked about the metro court, how much you loved running the place. I did. I do. But I also remember you saying you never thought you’d get it back.

[ Inhales sharply ] That’s also true. So, what happened? Jason bought it and then sold you his half? He gave it to me. Just handed it over? Expected nothing in return? Jason doesn’t operate like that. When he does or says something, he means it. Okay. That explains his side. But not mine. Well, you just don’t strike me as someone who would accept a gift like that. You know? You seem to value your independence too much. Am I off base? No. You’re spot on. So, valentin, jack brennan, and I, we all came up through the wsb together. Wait. Val– y-you’re saying that valentin was an agent? A desk agent. You didn’t know that? Hm. So, anyway, we all went through the wsb training course at the same time. Jack brennan, he finished top of the class, which is what I had intended to do, but I wound up second. I think it was maybe sexism at work, but who knows. Anyway, valentin did very well, too. He finished close to the top. I mean, it’s kind of just like going through university together. You know people, but you don’t know them very well. Brennan — always a bit of a pragmatist. Now, I’m almost positive that he stole the money that was used to seed pikeman. Okay. Where — where does valentin fit in? If you would ask him, nowhere. However, when pikeman initially approached sonny to handle the shipment, valentin was the go-between. Now, he says it’s because he did contract work for them back in the ’90s and that there are no other ties. But you don’t buy it? No. Did you push him on it? No. I mean, “push” him? No. I don’t think that he believes I’m suspicious — of him, anyway. The subject that I probed on was brennan. Okay. And?

[ Chuckles ] It’s really interesting. Like, he convinced me that — that I was remembering wrong, that he and brennan weren’t tight the way I believed. And, I mean, you know, it was the ’80s, so it’s a while back. But I-I did some thinking. I know I’m right. I know brennan and valentin were thick as thieves back then. Okay. So valentin’s hiding something. I’m almost certain… at times. And then at other times, I think I’m being a bit paranoid. I kind of go back and forth. That’s not like you. I have to be honest with you. When it comes to valentin, you know… …my judgment is a bit compromised. Look at you! Trusted status. Free movement around the place. “Free-er.” Let’s not go crazy. Well, you’re out and about with no guards present. I’m impressed. It is a perk. And, uh, how about you? Finding a reason to visit pentonville that has nothing to do with me and doesn’t require a midnight van trip. Kudos! I guess we all have our moments, jack. Ah, well, what we don’t have is a whole lot of time. What’s happening with corinthos? Adjusting “well” to life on reduced medication? Well, it looks that way. Sonny’s isolated from his closest friends and family. The only one he trusts is ava jerome. I heard you were being transferred. I wanted to see you before that happened. How are you? Incarcerated. Besides that. I’m alright. Resigned to my fate… I suppose. Helps that nothing’s waiting for me on the outside. And you? I’M… …doing well. That’s it? Did you expect more? My mother told me you’re living with sonny. Ohh. Ah. Yeah. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t the least bit curious. What’s going on there? Well, it started as a safety precaution after the break-in at wyndemere. Never known you to be afraid of the dark. I do have a daughter to protect. Yeah, a daughter that you share with sonny. That’s right. You said it started as a safety precaution, so… what is it now? Hm. Why am I discussing this with you? Because I’m safe. Trapped in here with nothing to gain. Or trapped in here with nothing to lose. There’s always something to lose. I think we both learned that the hard way. My relationship with sonny has… …evolved, let’s say. Hm. For the worse? The better? Best it’s ever been.

Whatever you need. I can give you a ride to G.H. I can call someone for you. Oh. No, no, no, no. I’m just — I’m fine. The baby was just kicking up a storm. Oh. Okay. Good. Actually, I’m glad I ran into you. Well, you’re running. I’m not. Uh, but you get the point. I do. What’s up? Listen. I’m a straight shooter, so I’m just gonna come out and ask you. Josslyn told me that my dad ordered you to kill cyrus. That’s not true, is it? This thing between sonny and me — is toxic? I — no. I was gonna say “hard to define.” Hm. But it’s working. Recent betrayals have left sonny feeling hurt and alone. And he’s found in me somebody he can trust. And we support each other. We rely on each other. Are you in love with sonny corinthos? No. Why? Are you jealous? Always. I mean, do I find him attractive? Yes. And I’m not saying that my feelings won’t change in the future, but, for now, I’m just happy to be on the same side. Must be nice for avery. Yes! It is. Honestly, I’ve never seen her so happy. She’s got both her parents. We’re all living together under the same roof. And she’s loving it. And as for me, you know, I’m used to skating on such thin ice with sonny, always this close to a custody battle. It’s such a relief to not constantly be bracing for that. Makes sense. Why do you say it like that? Like what? Like you’re not completely sold. Oh, I’m sold. I get that you like not fighting with sonny and that it’s healthy for avery and blah, blah, blah. But that is not the part that you get off on the most. Well, do tell. You like being in the inner sanctum, in sonny’s coveted “circle of trust.” You’re the one he leans on, the one he confides in… the one he believes. Damn right, I do. I’ve had other offers throughout the year. Other people wanting to buy you back your half of the hotel? Yeah. Sonny. My son, michael. Even nina reeves offered to sell it back to me in the name of “peace” — so she said. I’m guessing you weren’t feeling that peaceful towards nina reeves? Uh, no. And the ex-husband, I get. But why not accept the offer from your son? Because! I didn’t want to expose michael to scrutiny from the sec. Not that they would find anything, but I didn’t want to put him through that kind of an investigation. It was bad enough when it happened to me. I’m guessing you already know all about this. Just ’cause I’m fbi doesn’t mean I’m familiar with every federal charge ever filed. But you are familiar with that one. Yeah. So you know the ending, right? I messed up, I lost my hotel, and I was going to do everything in my power to get it back on my terms. But that — but that just brings me back to my original question. You weren’t able to accept charity, for lack of a better term, from sonny or nina or michael. How were you able to accept it from jason? Because taking my hotel back wasn’t for me. It was for him. Sonny’s on one-quarter of his bipolar medication, and no one has any idea. I’ve got to hand it to you, val. The strategy is simple, effective, hard to detect. If this were a project back when we were trainees, they’d steal your idea and put it in a textbook. However, we have a rather bigger, rather more pressing problem than sonny. Jason morgan, also known as alan jacobs. Spent years at pikeman, therefore knows too much. Yeah, and I’m sure by now you’ve been back through his file and double-checked our screening process. How did morgan get a job at pikeman in the first place? Who messed up and where? The short answer is no one messed up — because alan jacobs’ history checks out. I mean, supporting documents. His outstanding record of military service. Everything seems legitimate. That’s troubling. Someone went through a lot of trouble to put jason morgan in pikeman. Someone capable of manipulating government records. Could be a business rival. There’s a couple of other security firms have that kind of tech. So sabotage pikeman from within and steal our clients? Yeah, it’s plausible. Except for morgan himself. Why would he take the job? What was his — his incentive? Well, jason has always had blind faith in sonny corinthos. It’s kind of a defining character trait. Right. So what would make him disappear on sonny? Not money. He was born a quartermaine. So if morgan wasn’t paid to infiltrate pikeman, what if he was coerced? Yeah, but who could coerce a man like that? Who could deliver flawless credentials? The answer has three letters. Only the question is… which ones? Drew : Yours is such animportant story, willow, and thank goodness it has a happy ending. I really — I hope you’ll consider coming on board. Wow. I…

[ Exhales sharply ] Uh, willow’s a private person. She may not want to share her story with the world, even if it is for a-a worthy cause. I mean, I completely understand. I would n– I mean, I don’t want to pressure you. I-I definitely don’t want you to feel uncomfortable in any way. Oh, no. Ii know that. And I am so honored that you thought of me. Well, you’re the only person I thought of.

[ Exhales sharply ] Can I get back to you? I promise I won’t take too long. Absolutely. Take as much time as you need. Because while, yes, I do value my privacy, the fact is… my life was saved by my great-aunt liesl and her bone-marrow donation, and I will be eternally grateful for that gift. It allowed me to be a mother to my children, a wife to my husband. I want to increase the odds of that happening for everyone. Drew, we have a problem, and I need you to do something…

I don’t think thatwe should talk about that. Oh, my god. It is true. Yeah. Dex, I’m so sorry. You’re not responsible for your father. No, but I — I feel so stupid and naive. I mean, I know my dad worked outside the law, but I can’t believe he would put you in that position. Makes you feel any better, it surprised me, too. Can I ask you another question? Sure. In the time that you’ve worked with my dad, has he seemed different, in the end, than he was in the beginning? Uh, I know that’s vague. No, no. I get what you mean. Yeah, uh, towards the end, sonny was more volatile, quicker to fly off the handle. Paranoid? Yeah. After the attack in puerto rico, he was convinced there was a traitor inside his organization. Didn’t take him long to decide that it was me, and after that, there was no changing his mind. Okay. So it was after the shooting in puerto rico. Yeah, he’d always been volatile, but that’s when it flipped to paranoia. Right when ava moved in.

[ Groans ] Kristina? Is something wrong? Jason thinks that I wouldn’t have lost the hotel to begin with if he had been here. Do you agree? Probably. I mean, it’s not jason’s fault. Something was obviously keeping him away. I mean, he’s been through something. Jason told you that? No, I can see it in his eyes. And now that he’s back home, there’s so much that he can’t get back or make up for. But this hotel, you know, it’s the one thing he could fix. So you swallowed your pride and let him. Oh! [ Chuckles ] Don’t get me wrong. I am thrilled to have the hotel back. But I wouldn’t have accepted it from anyone else. You took it from jason. For him. Yeah. And I’d do it again. Enjoy your hotel, carly. Enjoy your stay, agent cates. My defenses were up because I thought that someone was targeting me. Jason: Somebody was targeting you. Yeah, not that night, though. When I got back to the apartment, I could see that someone had opened the door. And I entered. And there was a figure standing there in the dark rifling through my things. And they turned toward me with something in their hand. And I fired. You did what your instincts were telling you to do. You wouldn’t have done that. Anna, you don’t know that. Yeah, I do. You wouldn’t have entered an apartment that was dark and fired at a target that you couldn’t see clearly. I-I wasn’t there. It’s impossible to say what would’ve or wouldn’t have happened. Y-you just can’T. It’s really hard for me to accept, you know, that that happened. And every time it flashes in my mind, I just try to block it out. I sh– mnh. I shot a child, jason. I’m sorry. You should feel sorry for charlotte. I feel sorry for you, too. Had to be tough to live through that. I’m really glad charlotte’s okay. Oh, god. Me too. I don’t know what I would’ve done if she hadn’t made it. Anyway… so, what I’m saying is that it’s impossible for me to — to look at valentin and not think about his daughter. You see, to me, he is a father first and a person of interest second. In which case…

[ Sighs ] …I think I’m putting this entire investigation at risk. I fear we’ve caught the interest of a government agency. Fbi, cia, nsa. Mi5? Yeah. The only one we can be sure it’s not is the wsb. They don’t want to investigate pikeman. They want to keep it running just the way it has for decades. Do you think the cia put jason in pikeman? I think we’d be idiots not to consider that possibility. And morgan’s perfect. He’s got the right skill set, but he’s not an agent.

[ Scoffs ] I mean, you know… if we hadn’t had the blind good luck to assign morgan to an op in his own hometown, we’d never have tripped to him. And you think that’s good luck? Well, any luck’s good if you know how to play it. Now that we know an intelligence firm is coming after us… we can adjust accordingly. Jack, this is gonna have to be our last face-to-face. There can be nothing linking me to you. Right. And we still have to tie off morgan. Well, I think we may have gotten a break there. ‘Cause jason and sonny are currently at odds. Yeah? How bad? On a scale from creative differences to all-out war? From sonny’s perspective, the latter. And with him erratic… and angry? We eliminate jason and pin it on sonny.

I’m sorry. I-I didn’t know that you were here. -It’s fine. -We were just leaving. Um, I will get back to you with an answer as soon as possible. Like I said, no rush. And thank you again so much for thinking of me. Willow barely said a word to me. Because we were in the middle of a meeting, nina. Did you see her smile just a little? Maybe I could call — no. You know what? I think texting is more appropriate. I think you should give willow some space. Now, what was so important that you had to barge into my office without knocking again? Well, carly is giving me a hard time about doing standard maintenance on my office.

[Chuckling] Really? I wonder where she got that idea from. Remember, drew, we are on the same team. In what world am I on the same team as you? One where carly and jason screwed us both over. So what’s the plan? For? Payback. Everything’s fine. Are you sure? Because things looked a little tense. Yeah, no. It’s fine. The baby was just kicking, and… I asked dex if what you told me about my dad was true. Oh. You were right. Well, for the record, I wish I wasn’T. And looking back, I certainly did not have to tell you the way that I did. Well, I should probably get going, so… it’s good to see you. Dex. Wait. I like it. Thought you might. But you need to tread carefully and make it look convincing. Otherwise, anna will totally be onto you. I heard she came to see you. Hm. She wanted to know all about pikeman. She seemed to think that somehow I’d know who was running the show. And what did you tell her? I gave her nothing. But anna’s closing in, val. You know, we can take precautions against the nsa or whoever it is that has pikeman under scrutiny. But our defenses against anna are limited. She knows us both. She knows our history. She was there when we stole the money to fund pikeman. Now, all she has to do is put those pieces together. And she’s plenty smart enough to do that. She’s already come to see me to talk about pikeman. She asked me about your involvement. And I stonewalled. And she believed you? Of course. Trust me. Anna’s not gonna be a problem. Every instinct in my body is just screaming that valentin is more involved in pikeman than he is saying. But for the reasons that I’ve just outlined, when I question him, I come up empty. I just — I-I think I’m incapable of being objective. Oh, and this is — this is where I come in? Mm-hmm. Yeah. You’re, uh, good at rational thinking, yeah? That’s what I hear. And I’m just wondering maybe you can get a read on valentin? ‘Cause he’s not going to be suspicious of you as he would be of me. Right. Look. I’ll do anything I can to help you. Thank you. But… you may not trust your own judgment. I do. And I always will. Thank you. I have a lead for you. Great. What? Well, dex confirmed for me that sonny did, in fact, take that shipment from pikeman. Yeah, I got my own reasons to talk to this guy dex. I’ll follow up, and I’ll see if he knows anything about valentin. And I’ll always be here for backup. I know. John: Jason!

[ Scoffs ] Oh, look. The gang’s all here. Except — wait. You’re missing a member. Well, we were just discuss– I don’t care what you were doing here. The investigation into pikeman has stalled. Care to explain why?

Your head’s not in the game. Throwing money around. Buying the metro court for carly spencer? Just because you’re back in port charles with access to your bank accounts does not make you a free man. Understood. I want an update on pikeman — now. There’s nothing to report right now. Now, you listen up, morgan. Either you figure out a way to give me what I want… or carly will lose the hotel — again — because she will be up on rico charges. Oh, hi! My two favorite people! It’s already looking so much better in here. You think? Yeah, the metro court has missed your special touch. Thank you. Well, what are you guys doing here? Late lunch? Early dinner? Drinks? You know we do it all.

[ Chuckles ] We’re not sure just yet. Alright. Well, let me know when you decide. Um, duty calls.

[ Laughs ] Excuse me. Willow: Your mom seems so happy. Yeah. She does. So… what do you think about drew’s offer? I mean, I was flattered and really surprised. Look. I-I don’t want you to feel pressured. It’s — it’s 100% fine if you say no. Is that what you think I should do? You knock yourself out. I’m not interested in payback. Since when? I mean, you really enjoyed getting even with me. Why are you letting carly and jason off the hook? Carly and jason didn’t send me to prison. If you weren’t sent away, drew, then you and carly would have been married by the time jason came back home. And how humiliating would that have been? Oh, I see. So — so you actually saved me from divorce. That’s right. So do you want me to thank you? What I want right now doesn’t really require any words. Oh, is it too much for you, drew? I owe you an explanation. You don’t owe me anything. It wasn’t my place to say anything to kristina, but at the time, I was just very scared of what sonny might do to you, and I thought that if I told kristina, it would help. You’re not scared anymore? No, I think that you’re gonna be just fine. Have you heard from the academy? Not yet. I’m sure you’ll get in. We’ll see. Pcpd would be lucky to have you. You really think so? I know so. All those years I spent with my nose pressed up against the window, on the outside looking in, despised, ridiculed by everybody in sonny’s orbit. Not nina. No. No. Not nina. But the collapse of sonny and nina was inevitable. I mean, she never had a chance of really understanding him. Not like i do. Because sonny wasn’t the man that she thought he was. Do you know what I’m really loving? What I’m really tickled pink about? Is that finally carly is getting a taste of her own medicine. Hm. Now we’re getting somewhere. Glaring down her nose at reprehensible, despicable ava jerome, repeatedly slamming the door in my face. Well, guess who’s in charge of entry now. You. Me. And she can be the ousted traitor. I’m the trusted confidant. Sonny makes you feel powerful. Yeah. Yeah. But I am helping him, too. How so? Sonny is on a quarter dose of his medication. Did you arrange it? No. No. Absolutely not. And I have to find out who’s responsible. In the meantime, I know that sonny is vulnerable, and I’m watching out for him. Whoa. Whoa, whoa, whoa. You’re saying that y-you haven’t told sonny?

I hope you’re right about the police academy. We both know I have a lot to make up for. Look, if I’ve come off as some perfect angel, I know that I’m not. I have done things that I’m not proud of. And…I don’t even know why I did them. I just know that they didn’t make me feel like me. Does that make sense? Makes a lot of sense. There is a scale, joss. Bad things you’ve done. There’s some bad things that I’ve done. I’m not trying to compare. I’m just saying that I know that I’ve messed up, too. So I shouldn’t stand in judgment of anybody else. And that includes you. No, I haven’t told sonny. Why not? N-never mind. I think I know. You like quarter-medicated sonny, don’t you? He’s receptive to you in a way he’s never been before. We’re getting along very well, yes. Getting along? Playing house, ava. Well, as long as I’m watching out for sonny, what’s the downside? How much time do you got? If sonny finds out what’s wrong and that you knew? Look, if he even suspects that you had a hand in this… well, I didn’T. But you didn’t try and fix it. Okay? Sonny’s not rational. You’re playing with real fire here. You almost sound like you care. You know I do. And yet you always underestimate me. I know what I’m doing. God, I hope so. Do you think I wouldn’t be good at it?

[ Chuckles ] No, I think — actually, no, i know that you’d be amazing with whatever you put your mind to. I just — I don’t want you to feel obligated, willow. That’s all. If you do decide to take the job, just make sure it’s what you — what you really want. Well, drew told me I could think on it. So that’s what I’m gonna do. Okay. Carly stays free as long as you do what the fbi asks of you. Are we clear?

[ Exhales heavily ] Clear. Good. Now… we both know you spent years running contraband through here. I suggest you renew your contacts and find out how pikeman is moving their shipments through port charles and when they plan to do it again. I do what I have to to get the results I need. Anna: Maybe. But I can tell you don’t like yourself very much when you treat jason like that. It doesn’t matter how any of us feel about it. What matters is we get it done. Don’t worry, jack. I know how to play anna. You better be right. For her sake. I like anna. I always have. But the wsb has too much invested in pikeman. Okay? If she threatens that… take a wild guess what’s gonna happen to her. Nothing’s gonna happen. Yeah. If you want to protect her, val, really, you want to keep her safe, keep your distance. The more time you spend with anna, the greater the risk you’ll give yourself away. That’s all the time I have for you, jack. I need to get going.

Days Opinions For The Week Of April 22, 2024

Opinion Article


by Michele & Cheryl

Paulina from Days

Why was everyone judging Paulina for risking her life to save Chanel? They would have done the same thing she did to save their children. Steve risked going to prison to help break Clyde out of prison to save his son. The people in Salem should have understood why Paulina would leave the hospital to save her daughter. Paulina did risk her life, but Chanel wouldn’t have been rescued if it weren’t for her.

It took long enough for Eric to find out what was going on between Sloan and Leo. We’re not surprised it finally happened since Sloan never stops talking about it. It was only a matter of time before Eric got a clue and realized something was going on between Sloan and Leo. We guess Eric’s obsessiveness over her money paid off.

Brady cares about Kristen more than he’s letting on. If he didn’t care, why did he listen to her telling him about Alex and his relationship with Rachel? He wasted time talking to her when he could have left the mansion sooner. Brady does a bad job of showing that he doesn’t care about Kristen. He needs to stay away from her if he doesn’t have feelings for her. Brady is clearly torn between Kristen and Theresa.

Speaking of Brady, he and Nicole made up this week. It’s better to see them getting along as friends the way they used to. We enjoyed their friendship and missed seeing them getting along with each other. They didn’t work as a couple, but they do have a good friendship. We will see how long their friendship lasts before something else comes between them.

Why did Stephanie give herself credit for why Everett signed the divorce papers? She made Jada think she talked Everett into signing the papers. Stephanie could have told her Everett decided on his own because he wanted to have a chance with her. Clearly, she wanted to keep that bit of information to herself so Jada wouldn’t be upset with her.

Eric assumed Sloan was having an affair when he saw her charges. If she was having an affair, it would serve him right. He doesn’t treat Sloan right and puts Nicole ahead of her. Why wouldn’t Sloan have an affair? We know she’s not cheating on him, but he would deserve it if she were cheating. Also, why did Eric feel as if he could check into her bank account? It’s her account so he had no right investigating charges from her account.

Ashley: I like it. I like it. Oh, it feels so good just to cut loose and enjoy myself. I’ve been in a cage. It’s really been like a prison. Three hots and a cot, I should say. But shouldn’t someone have the right to come and go as they please? Someone who means no harm to anyone at all. I mean, that’s just the whole thing. I’m the one who’s looking for the– the pleasant solution, not the messy one. Oh, I just love it here. Everyone having free will to do whatever the hell they want.

Piano player: That’s the idea.

Ashley: Don’t you see, though, that’s the shame of it all. I don’t get to do what I want. No, everybody seems to have a vote in what I do and what I say. And what’s the fun in that, I ask you? None. Looking at me with sad eyes and pity. And I am the last woman on this green planet to need anybody’s pity. You know what? What difference does it make if I can’t remember this or that occasion? It just means that maybe it’s not worth remembering. Or maybe it’s the tequila. Whatever it is, it doesn’t matter, does it? ‘Cause I’m having fun. And thanks to you, I’m having more fun than I’ve had in ages, so whatever you do, you sweetie pie, don’t you stop the music. Whoo! Yeah!

Kyle: Look, Dave, my little boy is seven years old. He thinks a little brass bunny is good luck. He doesn’t go to sleep at night until we have read at least two books. He has told me all about his school, his friends, his favorite subject and every game he has played on the playground. Right now, he doesn’t have his school, his friends, his bed or his parents. So, how can you hear me say this and stay silent?


Jill:  You’ve been quiet. Do you have anything you’d like to add?

Devon: No, I don’t. You guys know where I stand on this.

Jill: Any other observations? Hm? Any, uh, comments? Speak up now. All right, then I propose we put this to a vote. And I vote against going to court. And, lily, I totally understand your point of view, and I respect it. I just feel that the company will suffer less if we just let Daniel take his toys and go home. Okay, we take the loss, we move on. We’ve all been through it before. We’ll all be going through it again.

Billy: I agree with my mother. I vote against following through with the lawsuit.

Lily: Well, you know where I stand. We own Omegasphere. We made it the success it is. I vote that we fight to keep it.

Abby: And I vote with Lily. I think we should fight.

Billy: Well, now. Look who’s the tiebreaker.
