So, we have pistachios, we have granola bars, we have an oatmeal cookie, yes, and books. We have more books of my favorite Stephen King novels, The Stand, and The Shawshank Redemption. Oh, great. The books I’m actually gonna read, you know, cause my life still has no internet, no Wi Fi, So, you know, binge watching Yellowstone is just not in the cards for me, is it?

I’m not complaining. I’m not complaining. This is better than Statesville. Don’t get me wrong, okay? I just, you know, miss the daily brawls at Statesville every now and then. Break up the monotony of this whole place, but it’s okay. I’m at the point in my life right now where I’m, never thought I would say this, but I’m looking forward to Vespers.

You know, a month ago, I didn’t even know what Vespers were. So you’re, you’re praying a lot? Yes, Mom. I’m praying a lot. Praying that I get out of here. Praying that I can see my family. Praying that I get my life back.

Alex. Hi there. Hey, Dr. Evans. Hey. I haven’t seen you for a while. I know, right? Not since, um, the night Theresa left. Please, sit down. Thank you. Of course. I’m assuming Brady brought you up to speed on the latest? Yes, he did. He told me that you’d moved on with Kristen. I have to admit, it made me wonder. What?

It made me wonder why you would get involved with somebody who is so difficult. And I thought maybe you had some, you know, ulterior motive.

So, feel good to be home? Amazing, especially after having that stupid ankle monitor removed. Man, I hated that thing. Well, that thing is gone. We are just so glad that you’re here. So, do you want to take a nap or something? You gotta be exhausted, buddy. Are you kidding? I’m way too wound up to be tired. I’m also kind of hungry.

You hungry? Do we, should we get dinner? What do you want? What do you want? Uh, I’ve kind of been dreaming of a buddy’s burger with onion rings and that, that awesome ranch dipping sauce. Oh, okay. Alright. If you want a buddy’s burger with the onion rings and the amazing ranch dipping sauce, that’s what you’re gonna get.

Your dad’s gonna go out and get it for you. No problem. No, it’s okay. Don’t worry. Um, I, I really want to go out. I just, you know, want to be around people. What people? I, my, my friends. And, you know, I haven’t seen them in a while. I texted them when I got back. We just, we just wanted to hang out. Well, if Holly is one of those friends, you can forget it.

You’re going to stay right here.

Hey, Mom. Uh, Harold said you wanted to see me. Hi, Mom. Sit down, Holly.

Mom, please. Stop. Don’t say another word. Mom, I just. Honey. This is how this is gonna work. I’m going to talk, and you’re going to listen.

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

Okay, listen, if you’re insinuating that I’m not attracted to Kristen No, no, I wasn’t insinuating anything. Oh, there you are. Oh, I hope I’m not late. Uh, no, no, no, not at all. Uh, not at all. Uh, we’re just, um, Well, we’re, we’re having supper. We’re having kind of a girl’s night out. Oh, nice. Which I’ve been so looking forward to.

And so have I. I’m sorry, do you, do you know Alex Kiriakis? Yes, yes. We have met. Yes, we have, Mayor Price. Good to see you. Looking fabulous, might I add. And may I also add, I am very happy to hear about your recovery. You’re amazing. Not that we all didn’t already know that. Hmm, okay. Uh, is there anything else?

Why are you buttering me up, Mr. Kiriakis? Is there any particular reason? Not at all. I just appreciate strong, beautiful women. That’s all. Oh, I have a feeling that you appreciate a whole lot of women. And I was just leaving for the night. Thank you both, Dr. Evans. Very good to see you. See you soon, Alex. Is he your patient?

Never mind, never mind, I know you can’t answer that. Anyway, I hope he is because I’m guessing that, that guy needs some help. How are you, Paulina? Good. I am just fine and so very grateful that you asked me out. It’s been too long. Has been too long. Has been too long. I was hoping that I could take you to the bistro, but sadly it hasn’t reopened yet.

Probably, probably for the best, for me anyway. Oh, at least I don’t have to stare at all. Buttery French food that I can’t eat while I’m on this miserable low iodine diet before my treatment. Well, hopefully you will find something in this menu to your liking. Oh, I know I can without even looking. I’m gonna have a vodka meat.


Lucas, I’m praying too. Really? I was just hoping you could do a little bit more than that, but Okay, like, like what? You knew that the, that the deal to shorten your sentence was never finalized, right? Right. I know that. It’s not my fault that I got attacked before I could do what I had to do, before I could out Weston.

Well, of course not. But the point is, he escaped, so I don’t know what we have now to persuade them to let you out early. So what are you saying? What are you saying, Mom? I’m stuck here? I just gotta do my time.

Did I say Holly? Did I even mention her name? Holly is one of your friends, right? Is she not? So what? Why are you even asking me that? Are you guys gonna continue to treat me like a prisoner? And my god, I’ve been stuck in rehab and then a halfway house for months for no reason! We don’t think that you are a prisoner, we just We don’t want you seeing or speaking to Holly Jonas for obvious reasons.

We know you’ve been cooped up. We know you’re anxious to get out there and see your friends, but I think your mom, I think she was hoping that you would just stick around here tonight, you know? We missed you. I’ve missed you guys too, but I saw you when you came to visit. I haven’t seen my friends in forever.

So please, just for tonight, can I go out? Just to be a thousand percent. Sure, you are not going to see I’m not going to see Holly Okay, then then I want you to have fun And uh, have a good time, okay, thanks dad. I’ll see you mom. I promise I won’t be out late Better not be

What do you think your consequences should be for what you did To be honest, I kind of thought I’d be grounded by now Yeah, well, I wanted to make sure that I thought things through and that I wasn’t coming from a place of anger or embarrassment or hurt. And I know the purpose of consequences is to stop the behavior from happening in the future, obviously.

So you talk about in therapy, Dr. Evans. We talk about a lot of things. Mostly me. Well, frankly, honey, that’s none of your business. And like I said, I just, I wanted to make sure that the punishment fit the crime. And what you did, honey, was a crime. You lied to the police. You let EJ prosecute an innocent bystander who was your friend.

And I know you said you were trying to protect me. And even if that was true. It is true. Regardless. I think part of you was just trying to protect yourself.

Let me be clear, honey. I am the one who is supposed to protect you, and if you just had been open and honest with me from the beginning, none of this would have happened. It’s true. So whatever punishment you have for me, I know I deserve it.

Okay, Lucas, look. We can’t just give up, okay? I’m not giving up on getting you out of here. I’m just not doing that. It has to count for something, that you almost got killed because you informed on Clyde. Alright? Look it, Harris has recovered, he’s out of the hospital, so You know what? He needs to step up.

He got me into this mess. He keeps making promises he can’t keep. Okay. Trust me. If he doesn’t come through on his promises, then I’m going straight to the governor. And I’m going to do something about this. Cause one way or another, you’re getting your freedom back.

Now, mind you, I’m not supposed to be having more than one alcoholic drink a day on this diet. Uh, and mostly I’ve been drinking water and club soda. I’m glad to hear that. But I decided to indulge tonight because I’m having a girl’s night out. Like you said, with a different, I’m glad we can make this happen.

Me too. Me too. But I’m telling you more later for a no big deal. Cancer, this treatment, ooh, some pain in the ass. Mind you, mind you. I am very grateful that I am alive to be going through this pain in the ass treatment. We are all so grateful. And I suspect that it might be difficult for you to, to be in isolation.

You’re just, you’re normally so active. Oh, I am dreading not being able to see someone’s eyes glaze over when I talk their ear off. You don’t do that. You’re a wonderful conversationalist. And maybe you’ll be able to relish the quiet. Oh, I highly doubt it. See, I got weeks of that when I was in the hospital, so I’m over it.

Truth is, there is nothing about sitting in isolation that I am going to relish. Especially being separated from my husband. Well, the first thing you’re going to do is make amends with Tate. Well, that’s a little hard to do seeing as his parents don’t want me to see him. And you’re going to respect their wishes by writing to them.

And to him, letters by hand, not text or snap. Mom, Tate knows how sorry I am. Good, and you’re gonna remind him. Very sincerely. And very empathetically. Honey, you You took months away from Tate’s life that you can never give back. And quite frankly, I’m surprised that he found it in his heart to forgive you.

Have you, Mom? Will you ever forgive me?

Tate? I didn’t realize you were allowed to Wait, are you supposed to be out here right now? I’m supposed to be wherever I want. Yeah, but you can get in big trouble if you get caught. No, I can’t. I was, uh, I was just released today. Okay. What? Really? Yes. Really. That’s great news, man. I’m happy for you. You don’t have to pretend to care.

That you’re happy. I’m free now. I’m not stupid, alright? And I know you broke up with my mom, and I know you were two seconds away from calling the cops on me just now. Ugh.

Sorry the tape flew out of here so fast. Yeah, well, I can’t blame him. I mean, what kid wants to stay home with their parents and eat cake? I don’t know, I think that chocolate cake was a pretty good reason to hang around. As are you. Back at you. I just can’t believe he’s finally home. You know, I thought this day would never come.

I know. Kind of feels like the nightmare is finally over. Thank God. I don’t think Tate’s going to be too happy though when he sees that all my stuff has kind of taken over his room. I have to clear out of there and, uh Teresa, Teresa. He packs light anyway. There’s no reason he can’t just stay on the couch.

No. He can’t. No, absolutely not. The poor kid hasn’t slept in his own bed in months. I’m not going to do that to him. Okay, then, then, then why don’t you just sleep in my bed?

Uh, and, uh, Marlena, while we’re on the subject of my previous hospital stay, there is something I’d like to ask you about my, uh, well, My near death experience. Okay. See, now I’ve, I’ve heard about what happens when you’re, uh, brain dead. That the brain releases neurochemicals that Make, make you see things that aren’t there.

Did you see something that wasn’t there? I did. At least I think I did. Maybe I was just dreaming. But it all felt so real. First, There was this bright light. That’s a very common occurrence. You know that? Yes. Yes. I do know that. But then

Marlena, do you believe in ghosts?

To be perfectly clear, your mother was the one who broke up with me more or less. Oh yeah. And I’m actually very happy to hear that you’ve been released. Hey, If you remember, I was the guy who hired your first lawyer. And if your mom didn’t fire him, you might have gotten out a long time ago. Not that I’m blaming her at all.

I’m just really happy everything worked out in the end. Me too. Obviously. Yeah. So your mom was crashing in your old room, right? Where’s she gonna go now that you’re home? Uh, I don’t know. I hadn’t really thought about it. Your bed?

Yeah. I mean, you can, uh, you can sleep in my bed and I’ll sleep on the couch. Oh, wait a minute, you Did you, did you think that I meant No. No. No. No, I didn’t think that. Absolutely not. Uh huh. Anyway, I wouldn’t take your bed. That wouldn’t be right. Theresa, I would be totally fine with it, okay? No. I wouldn’t do that.

So, I guess there’s only one thing left for me to do. And what would that be? It’s time for me to move out. Where are you gonna go? I don’t know. I’ll rent a room at the Salem Inn. I’ll figure it out. Theresa, you don’t have to do that. Yes, I do. I’m moving out, Brady. I think this is best for everybody. Of course I forgive you.

I’m so, I’m, I’m, I’m angry and I’m sad. I’m done. And I’m scared. Scared? Why? Mom, I’m fine. For now. Honey, how long were you using drugs before what happened on New Year’s? A few weeks. That’s all, I swear. And the drugs you were taking? Where did you get them? At school. And not to like, freak you out mom, but they’re kind of everywhere.

I know, honey, I’m aware of that. But mom, you gotta know that after what happened, oh my god, I will never, ever use again. I sure as hell hope not. And I hope that there are fewer drugs on the streets, at least in Salem anyway, now that Clyde Weston’s drug ring has been busted. Yeah, but, Mom, you also have to know that I never thought something like this could happen.

I mean, so many kids have prescriptions for these pills. Yes, but they’re using them for a medical condition. You’re not. And honey, you have no idea what you’re getting off the streets. And you learned that in the hardest way possible. Believe me, Mom, I’ve learned my lesson. Have you?

I mean, have you used or, or had a drink since that night, since New Year’s Eve? A drink? A drink. You know alcohol is a drug too. And I shouldn’t have to remind you that you are underage. Uh, Okay, well, After the christening, when Eric gave me an ultimatum to tell you the truth, I, I was really nervous and scared, so, So I had some champagne.

Great. Right under my nose. You were busy, and I was very stealth, and it was only two glasses. I promise nobody could even tell.

Well, thank you for being honest with me, Holly. But I need to be honest with you. I want to trust you. I do. But now you’ve just shown me that I can’t.

My fate lies in the hands of Harris Michaels. That’s great. Swell. It’s worked out so far. Look, Lucas. He saved my life. Yeah. Well, he almost got you killed, so. Well, you, my friend, have to have a little faith, okay? But in the meantime, I need you to promise me that no matter how bored you get, you will not leave this place.

No matter what. Because let me tell you, Clyde has eyes and ears everywhere. Even at the Salem PD. What does that bastard want with me? I can’t bring him down. You said it yourself. Okay. Well, I probably know him better than anyone. And let me tell you, that man, unfortunately, is all about revenge. Oh, great.

Great. So even if I get out of Statesville, what’s going to happen? I’m not going to be safe until he’s dead? Paulina, tell me about what happened in the hospital. Tell me about this near death experience. Um,

Buckle up, Marlena. Because you’re gonna think I’m crazy. That word is not in my vocabulary. Well, then, you’re gonna think I’m clinically insane. Look, whatever happened, it brought you back to us, and for that we will always be grateful. Well, it’s lovely to hear that. Okay. So then, uh, here goes.

After I saw the light, Abe’s late wife, Lexi, appeared. At first I thought she was going to take me into the light, you know, to cross to the other side. But she wasn’t. She told me she wanted me to stay with Abraham. Then, all of a sudden, I was healed. He got his memory back. It was a double miracle. That it was.

And look now, I know, I know, I know I had a lot of medication in me. But, Abe, he saw the same thing. Now, do you, so, do you, you think that, Really could have happened.

Do you answering a question with a question that what they teach you to do in shrink school now and then? Yeah, that’s what I figured. Joking aside now. Yeah, I’m just I’m just starting to, you know, to wonder. Wonder what? Well, you know, you know, uh, I heard Kate’s voice from, you know, in the, you know, outside of that urn, you know, at the Brady pub, way back, when she was supposed to be dead.

So, You think maybe I have some kind of extrasensory perception or something? Hmm. You know, there are so many things in this world that we don’t understand. I think nothing would surprise me anymore.

I’m not really sure where she’s gonna live, but I’m sure she’ll figure it out. She always does. Hey, Tate, um, would you mind just letting her know how happy I am that everything worked out okay for you? Why don’t you tell her yourself? You guys work together, right? Yeah, well, she’s kind of been avoiding me at the office, so.

Mm, yeah. You know, I feel like there’s a simple solution to that problem. One that doesn’t involve, you know, playing telephone through me. You are very mature for your age, young man. Has anybody ever told you that? I don’t think so, yeah. Nobody’s ever told me that either, so.

Hey man, if you don’t mind me asking, and you talking about it, what happened? How did you get released? Uh, Holly finally remembered that the drugs she overdid on were hers. What do you mean she finally remembered? Wouldn’t she know that, like, all along? Hard to say. Or you just don’t want to say? At all. That she let you take the fall for her, didn’t she?

It’s, it’s complicated. She was going through a lot. Oh my god, you are covering for a girl who put you through absolute hell. You are a better man than me, my friend. I don’t think I would ever be able to forgive somebody who screwed me over like that. You sure I can’t talk you into staying? You know, I don’t know.

I think it’s best that I just walk out of here on a high note. Instead of you and me fighting, for once we fought together. For Tate. And we won. We did. We’ve come a long way, baby. Yeah, we have. I will, uh, I’ll miss having you around. Ditto.

I’ll see you at the office, right? Uh, yeah, no, actually, I’ve been working remotely since I broke things off with Alex. You know, it’s less awkward that way. Look, Theresa, if you want, I can help smooth that over a little bit. No. No. It’s okay. I’m a big girl. I can, I can handle it. I know. Then I will, uh, See you sometime, somewhere else.

Yeah, definitely. Gee, I can help you with those bags if you want. No, I’m good. Thank you. And I’ll write a thank you note to John and Marlena for letting me stay.

Take care, Brady.

I don’t get it. I just told you the truth and now all of a sudden you don’t trust me? You almost died, Holly. And you still clearly have not learned your lesson. Mom. And the only way to earn my trust back is through time and hard work. So the first thing that you’re gonna do is go to therapy. And not because it’s a punishment.

I just think you need it after all the trauma that you went through. And that is non negotiable. Okay. Fine. Yes. And if the therapist thinks that you need further treatment, then Like rehab? Mom, no. Don’t tell me no. You just admitted that you drank shortly after you came out of a coma from a drug overdose.

I hadn’t just come out of it. I’d been okay for a while. And what, like, you haven’t had two glasses of champagne when you were my age? Come on, you were doing a lot Excuse me! Don’t you dare, don’t you dare throw my past in my face! That was different.

I thought at the very least you would be contrite. I am. I’m sorry. Really sorry.

Honey, can you even grasp what you have put Tate and Tate’s family through? He was beat up in jail. I was in a coma, Mom. For months. It’s not my fault that EJ went ballistic on him. Tate discouraged you from taking those drugs. He was trying to protect you. And the only reason he was made out to be a villain was because EJ believed me when I said you would never take drugs.


The only way, um, that I’m gonna feel better about this whole thing is that I make sure that you are no longer in danger of relapsing. Which means you are grounded indefinitely. What? You can’t do that! I have to see my friend! Well, then you can see your friends here. Now give me your phone and your car keys.

Oh my Now!

You know, I’m pretty sure I can swing an exemption to the no visitor policy since I’m on staff at the hospital. Oh, no, no, no, no. I would not want you exposing yourself to radiation, Marlena. I wouldn’t be. I’d be able to wear the suit and keep my visits very brief. You sure? Oh, I’m sure. Oh, oh, you’re a good friend, Molly.

Oh, and I’m a terrible one. Why would you say that? Because here we’ve been talking about me the whole time and I haven’t asked you a thing about you. Your life has been a whole lot more exciting than mine the last couple weeks. I find that hard to believe. You know, to be honest, you, you don’t, you don’t seem like yourself.

Is everything alright? Oh, I’m not covering very well. Oh, no, I can tell. You’re making the effort, but, uh, I can see the worry in your face. Uh, but hey, you know, if you don’t want to talk about it No, you know, the thing is that it’s, it’s about John. He’s been going through a lot of revelations about his past.

Oh, I’m very sorry to hear that. Ooh, well I’ve been there myself and I know it can be difficult to exercise those deep, uh, to move on. Yeah, well. He, he will be fine. He’ll get through it just fine. And I’m, and I’m there to support him and help him. Yeah, I’m guessing this isn’t your first time at that rodeo.

Yeah. No. But John’s been going through this for a very long time. Well, He’s lucky to have you. I’m lucky to have him too.

We both are.

To us. Amen to that.

Hey, Teresa. Can I help you with that? Uh, no, I’m

Actually, Yeah, that would be great, yeah. You know, I just ran into Tate. I told him to tell you how happy I am that he’s out of the halfway house. But I guess now I’m actually telling you that myself. Hmm. Yeah, right. Um, hey, thank you for what you did to support him. In case I didn’t show my appreciation. No, no, you didn’t.

I also asked him where you’re going to be crashing now that he’s home. I’m gonna get a room at the Salem Inn until I figure out a more permanent solution. Why? What do you mean, why? I mean, half of your belongings are at my place, which is, you know, a little hard to believe considering you have all this here.

Anyway, why would you be spending money on a hotel room? We started this thing off as a platonic living arrangement, and there’s no reason why we couldn’t get back to it. Um, actually, I can think of a few reasons.

Oh my God, you want me to give up my phone and my freedom? Those are the terms. No. Excuse me? Did you just say no to me? Let me remind you who is in charge here. I’ve been in a coma for months, Mom. I haven’t seen my friends. I haven’t done anything but sleep and almost die. If you’re so happy I’m alive, then why won’t you just let me live?

Giving up your phone isn’t going to kill you. Yes, it will. My entire life is on that. Well, that’s your first problem. That’s funny, because you didn’t think so when you got it for me when I was only 10. So then when I walked myself home from school, you’d know I got there. So I could be completely self sufficient when you weren’t around.

Order my own meals, buy my own clothes. That way you wouldn’t have to think about me at all. Whoa, whoa, that is not true. Well, here’s what is true. You’re punishing me for lying and the only, yes, the only reason I lied was so that you wouldn’t think you were a bad mom. But, you know what? The truth is I started taking those drugs because you were completely checked out.

My father died before I was born and all I’ve ever had was you. I mean, yeah, sure, there was Eric before you screwed that up and made him walk out on us. And now there’s EJ who doesn’t give a damn about me and God knows who will be next year.

Give me your phone. Now.

Here, but I’m not giving you the password. Hallie, I’m not going to go through your phone. I just don’t want you to call any dealers. Dealers? Really? Geez, Mom, why do you always have to be so extreme? Oh, you want to go there? Okay. Okay. You plotted to break up Johnny and Chanel, and now you’re all up in it with Tate?

Seems you always want what you can’t have. Just like me. Honey, I love you. I love you with all my heart, and I will do anything to protect you, even if you hate me for it.

I’m gonna go upstairs to bed, and you should too. Good night. Mmm. Mmm.

Oh. Oh, you know, these carrot sticks have a lot more appeal when paired with vodka. Ha ha ha ha. Mmm. Mmm. Mmm. Maybe. It’s just the company. Oh, I agree. We should do this again soon. Oh, yes, yes, we should now. Soon as I’m un radioactive. Let’s make a date. Yes. You know, you’re going to come through this with flying colors.

Oh, well, I hope so. You know, Marlena, you and me. We’re some tough broads, aren’t we? We are some tough broads. To us. To us, your bride.

Well, thanks for bringing me all this stuff. Especially the books, I really like the books. Ah, more to come. Oh, great. No internet, no wifi, so books are important. I’m gonna be a nerd. Book, bookworm, nerd. It’s gonna be great. Yeah. Well, books are sad for the lonely soul. I’ll just say what they say. Thanks. Yeah, I’ve just never been so lonely for this long, ever, in my life.

You have to hang in there, okay? It’s not gonna be forever.

I hope you’re right. God, I hope you’re right.

No, no, no, no, Bray. Don’t you go there.

I don’t get it. The Salem Inn? It’s expensive. It’s not exactly homey. I mean, why would you stay there when you could just Move back in with me. You really don’t get it. Okay. Um, for starters, you’re dating Kristen DeMera. If I move back in with you, I don’t know. She might put out a hit on me. Teresa, please.

We’ve been on like two dates together. Okay. Uh, you’re also a gazillionaire. It’s not like you need a roommate. So you think I’m going to charge you rent? Come on. I’m just trying to lend. to a friend in need. But if you don’t want to take me up on my offer, I don’t. Well, now, hold on. I didn’t say that I didn’t want to move in.

I just, I don’t want things to blow up the way that they did. I obviously don’t want that either. So I will promise to be a perfect gentleman. But that is about the only thing I can promise. Take it or leave it. Fine, I’ll take it. Oh, great. Let’s go. You shouldn’t

be here. It’s okay, it’s okay, I wouldn’t tell your mom. Why didn’t you answer any of my texts? My mother confiscated my phone. Polly? Hey, gotta go. Okay. Okay. But I’ll see you soon.

What is it now?

I don’t wanna go to bed angry.

You know when you were a baby, like you said, it was you and me against the world. And when we were in Italy, I would watch her every breath. And I would wonder what you were thinking cause you couldn’t talk to me yet. But this, this just brought me back to that time in our lives. When I fought to be your mother.

I will always fight for you, honey. I love you so much and I, I just couldn’t bear to lose you. I just wanted you to know.
