Oh, Nina, how you feeling? Oh, a little groggy. I can’t seem to focus on my work, on the TV, everything. I miss my family, my husband. Yeah, well, the fogginess is from the radioactive iodine, which is normal. Oz is missing your loved ones during the isolation. How are you feeling? Is the nausea still affecting you a bunch?

Some, yes, but the nurse gave me medication. Good, good. Bet your mouth is pretty dry, huh? Oh, I could drink a river. Oh, you should drink a river, please. I’m gonna touch your neck if that’s okay. Let’s just see how we’re doing here.

Do you have any soreness or neck pain? A little. So, how long till I can be released and get back to the real world? It’s like we talked about. It’s a minimum two day stay. It could be up to four. We’ll keep monitoring your radiation levels and as soon as it’s safe to release you, we will. And then you’ll, you’ll have to take some precautions for about a week before you can fully enter the public life.

Ugh, Phil. No wind in sight.

There you are. What happened? Hey, yeah, sorry, I, uh, took so long. The, uh, Chomped wood out back was wet. I think the, uh, the tarp must have blown off during the storm last night. So, I had to go down to the shoreline and find some dry wood. Oh, great. Where’s Chanel? Huh? What do you mean? I, I, isn’t she here? I don’t know.

She’s out looking for you, Johnny. Well, I haven’t seen her. Oh my God. Where could she be? Uh, how long ago did she leave? About ten minutes. Okay, then she can’t have gone far. Um, I’ll call her. I’ll just call her. I’ll let her know that I’m, that I’m back.

Oh no.

Yeah, this is the last of it. You know, I, I moved in here just in October. I swear I did not have all this stuff when I moved in. Yeah, well we’re gonna have to shoehorn this into my place. And I don’t, I don’t think I can bring furniture. What? I’m just not gonna fit. No, come on. Maybe just, um, my reading chair?

Okay, I’ll see what I can do. Thank you. I don’t know. I’m glad to be getting out of here. Because the trip in Wendy? Yeah, I just don’t want them caught in the line of fire again now that Clyde’s still in my hair. God, I just, yeah, I can’t believe he wants another favor with this damn black book. I just, I wish I was there when he, when he called you.

Yeah, well, hearing his voice makes my skin crawl. I’ve been trying to track his location, he hasn’t left any trail. It’s cause he’s a reptile. He’s stealthy and lurking about, just waiting to strike. Yeah, well I’m pretty sure I’ve had more stealth training than that guy. And he’s definitely underestimated who he’s dealing with.

Yeah? You or me? Both. But I’m the one who’s gonna bring his ass to justice.

What the hell was that? That half hearted apology. You didn’t even mention Tate and his family. I did, just before you arrived. Well, it wasn’t much. AJ, I thought you were genuine about this, that you wanted to make amends. I did exactly what I said I would do. No more, no less. Well, it was a lot less, because the press has barely arrived.

You want to bury this, don’t you? Are you even sorry that you locked up Tate? Or are you just embarrassed that you have to make a public apology? Darling, I have a very busy day today. That family is lucky to even get an apology on a morning like this. I just had a hearing with the judge over this whole Stefan fiasco.

Well, how did it go? The judge said that they will take the plea agreement under advisement, which means I have no idea yet if the court is going to accept or reject the deal. And darling, I really do have to go. I have a lot to deal with and I have no time or interest in dealing with the press. Okay.

Press is here. I’ll be hungry, bro. Cause you’re about to eat some krull.

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

For you, justice is putting Clyde behind bars. For me, it looks a little different. You know, the last time I saw Clyde, I swore I would slit his throat. He tried to kill the two men that I love most in this world. I’m not gonna let him hurt Tripp again. For you. Or you. You know, I like you better alive. Yeah, so do I.

What if I can’t find this damn black book? You know, I don’t, I don’t even know where to begin looking for it. I worked at the bistro for months. I know every single inch of that place. I never came across it. Okay, we just, we have to, we have to have a plan. We can’t just bust in and tear the place apart. No, no, no, no.

Okay, so we’ll map it out. We’ll do an organized search. Yeah. I’m just glad I’m not doing this alone. And I’m just glad you told me about Clagg’s call right away this time. Thank you for trusting me. There’s no one that I trust more. Well, now that I’m in on this from the start, we can be clad at his own game.

He wants you to find Gil’s black book, we’re gonna find it. And we’re gonna give it to him. And then we’re gonna take his ass down.

I know, the isolation is kind of a drag. But, you’re gonna be back with your family very soon. And this whole ordeal is gonna be over. I know that Abe is missing you. And Chanel and Johnny are gonna be back in a couple of days. They’re up at my family cabin in Smith Island right now. Mm, yeah, I know. Chanel told me all about it.

Oh, a little honeymoon getaway. Yes, it’s very sweet. Johnny was, uh, very excited to surprise her. Although I don’t think the snowstorm was what they were expecting. More of a winter wonderland than a spring fling. Exactly. I just hope they didn’t lose power and have enough firewood. I mean, we have plenty of firewood.

Warm blankets, and cozy clothes, so I’m sure they’re gonna be just fine.

Damn, okay, uh, Chanel doesn’t have her phone, which means she can’t call us, we can’t call her. So, what are we going to do? I’m gonna go out there and find her. Honey, you circling around looking for her, her circling around looking for you, lost in the snow, it’s the last thing we need. Right, okay, yes, but, I’m taking my phone, obviously, okay, so, if she comes back, you call me, and if I find her, I’ll call you.

I’ve got 80 percent battery, I’m gonna pull up a map, make sure I know where I am in case I stray away from the cabin. Well, let me make you a thermos of something hot you can give it to her when she’s so cold, you know? Uh, only if you hurry. Oh, yeah, I’ve got the Coca Cola already made. Just take a minute.

Too late, gentlemen. I just wrapped up the press conference after my office’s public apology to Master Black and I was just discussing how well it went with my wife. Isn’t that right, Nicole? That’s bull and we all know it. You’re unbelievable. Sung a press conference early to avoid the press. That’s not a good look, D.

A. DiMera. Oh, spammy direction. Now get out of my way, news boy. Yeah, not so fast. You’re a civil servant and as members of the press in the city in which you serve, we have a few questions. More than a few.

Why don’t you start by telling us what we missed? Did you apologize to Tate Black and his parents? An apology was given, the family was here, the matter is resolved. There’s got to be more to it than that. What exactly did you tell him?

What’s the matter, you don’t want to stand by your husband while he’s getting grilled? That is not my job, he runs his own office. Right. So, why would he start the press conference early? He didn’t want the press here? Honestly, I have no idea. Were you here for it? Just at the end. And I’m really not interested in talking about this.

How’s Holly doing? She’s okay. She goes back to school today, so I’m just crossing my fingers that all goes well. Well, I hope so. For both of you. How have you been holding up? Alright. I’m at a crossroads, I think. You know, I’ve been taking care of Holly for almost a year, and um, Now I just don’t know what to do with myself.

You know, I thought I’d be raising my little boy, and, I’m sorry. Well, God has other plans for me. I just, I don’t know what they are yet.

Was the family satisfied with your office’s apology? Yes, completely. Now really, I must be going. What about Detective Michaels? Any progress finding a shooter or who set me up? The Salem PD’s investigation into Detective Michaels is ongoing. My office has been giving its full support in the search for the perpetrator who gunned down one of our brave men and women in blue.

We will keep you apprised of any developments. Oh, well, here’s Detective Michaels. Now, excuse me, the D. A. here is attempting to answer my question about the status of the police investigation into your shooting. Any leads, Detective? Is your department any closer to finding the actual shooter? Well, um, you know, a public statement about that case or any other investigation should come from our police commissioner.

Well, what about Clyde Weston? Where are you in the search for him? We’ve initiated a nationwide manhunt for Clyde Weston and his accomplice. Oh, I see. A beyond the lookout alert is a nationwide manhunt. All leads and tips will be investigated. I like this. Let’s go grab a coffee.

Look at that.

My office just sent me a transcript of E. J. DiMera’s press conference.

The drug crisis has a strangled hold over our fair city. Blah, blah, blah. At times we must err on the side of caution. Blah, blah, blah. This was the case with Tate Black as District Attorney of Salem. It’s my job to follow the evidence and prosecute those who have wronged our community. Sometimes the system doesn’t work that way, and for that I offer my apology.

Oh, what is he doing? Oh, so smug. Sleazy! This is not the way that you apologize to a wrongfully accused teenage boy! Your heart rate is rising. Maybe we can finish working a little bit. I guess I’d better. We can dive into all of Salem’s problems later, but for now I just want you to think happy thoughts.


It’s Paulina. Check your divorce file? No, if we don’t answer she’s just going to start to worry and she’s just going to keep calling. Okay. Hey, Paulina, how’s it going? Johnny? Where’s Chanel? Uh, she’s, uh, she’s, she’s in the shower. I just, I saw it was you, so I wanted to pick up. Didn’t want you to worry, you know.

Oh, well I am worried. I heard there’s a storm out there. Everything okay there? Yeah, yeah, no, everything’s, everything’s great here. Uh, how’s isolation? Boring. Uh, but, uh, fine, I guess. I’ll get through it. Sorry to bother you. Didn’t want to interrupt your, your honeymoon. Just checking in on you two. That’s okay.

No, it’s, uh, it’s not a problem. I’ll tell Chanel you called. Yes, please, please. Tell her to call me after, um, the shower. Bye. Will do. Bye bye now.

Okay, I’m gonna go find Chanel. Paulina will never be the wiser. We don’t need to worry her with this. She’s been through enough already, okay? Right, right. Okay. Johnny, be careful out there.

St. Anthony? Patron saint of lost souls and lost things. Please help Johnny find Chanel.

Julie, this, this is a really special place you have. Yes, it is, and it’s been wonderful for the family, always such beautiful memories. And on bad weather days like this. My grandparents always had plenty of board games and puzzles for us. Sort of like the, the time capsule. The what? After the fire at our house, we found a time capsule that my grandparents had left for everyone.

And we think it must have been something to challenge the new generations, you know, like a puzzle. It is getting colder, isn’t it? Yeah, yeah, um, you know what? I’ll go help Donnie. Oh, honey, you don’t have to do that. I’ll be right back. I know, I know. But still, I think that two hands will bring back more firewood for us all.

Very practical. Thank you. Thank you, darling. Be careful out there. Paulina,

it’s Julie. Julie? Why are you at the cabin? Well, I just wanted a little overnight getaway. You know, just take a break from the house. And, uh, and I had no idea that Sarah had told the kids they could use the cabin for, for a little honeymoon. Oh, you had to stay there because of the snow. Exactly. Exactly.

And the roads are all blocked and nobody can get out. Even the ferry has stopped service. Oh, well, uh, where, where’s Chanel? I told Johnny to have her call me after her shower. Ha, but it’s the sweetest thing. They decided to take advantage of this weather. And the two of them are out, playing in the snow. Oh, well, well, I hope they, they dress warmly.

Oh yeah, yeah, I, I bundled them up, nice and toasty. Um, all right. Well, just please tell her to call me. Yeah, yes, yes. Bye bye. I’ll have her do that. Bye. Um, I’m sorry that you were put on the

spot like that. Yeah, yeah. Alexander questioning you and all. Comes with the territory. Can’t blame him when he wants to know who set him up. And my shooter is his link to finding out. Honey, I hate all the trouble that I’ve just brought you away. Clyde did that, not you. Yeah, but it made things complicated.

You still covered my ass. Yeah, I used Stefan to help you, and I would do it again. Look, Stefan’s a little weasel, but he was under Clyde’s control, like you were. And not for long.

I really do have to get going. How much time has the DA’s office recommended that Stephan DiMera serve as part of his plea deal? Considering you guys are family, any nepotism or conflict of interest would be very interesting for our readers. Oh, and yet here you are. Questioning me? Isn’t that a conflict of interest, little brother?

And in regards to the Stefan DiMera case, there was a hearing this morning. The outcome has yet to be decided. Now, while Stefan’s attorney gave it her best go, I am quietly confident that he will serve justly for his role in the distribution of tainted narcotics throughout Salem and the surrounding areas.

Actually, I already have.

Doug, darling, I am taking deep breaths. Well, Johnny’s out looking for Chanel and the moment he comes back with her and the roads are plowed out I’m gonna get the hell off this island Of course, of course, I’ll be careful darling it did hang on It’s Paulina again, can’t this woman give it a rest

Johnny said I had to pick it up, otherwise it would be much worse if she went to voicemail. Honey, hang on, hang on, just hang on a second.

Me again! Julie, what is going on out there? And where’s my daughter? And my son in law? Uh, just let me check. Darling? Darling, it’s me again. Uh, listen, I need an excuse for Chanel’s not answering Paulina. I can’t tell her the truth. Listen, if she finds out that her daughter’s missing, the woman will panic.

Well, honey, if you can’t come up with any Listen, I gotta I gotta take this. I’ll I’ll call you back.

Paulina, you’re not gonna believe this. You’re damn right I’m not. My daughter is missing. Oh, God, you heard me. Tell me the truth, Julie. Now, how long has Chanel been missing, and where is Johnny? Okay, this is exactly what happened. Johnny went out to get some firewood and he was gone a while and Chanel thought he’d been gone too long, so she went out to find him.

About 10 minutes went by. Then Johnny came back with firewood, but no Chanel. So now Johnny’s gone out again to find Chanel. Oh, my lord. I’m so sorry, sweetheart. I I I didn’t want to worry you because there’s no reason to worry. I’m sure the two of them are gonna be just walking through that door any second now.

Well, there they are. Where is Chanel?

You surprised to see me, brother? Sorry to steal your limelight. And, uh, how did this happen? Judge followed the law, agreed to time served, and I’m a free man. That’s it for today. No more questions. Thank you all for coming. EJ. EJ, we’re not done here yet. Did you advocate for your brother’s release? He’s not going to answer.

Let’s go talk to Stephen. Hey, uh, do you need me? There’s somewhere I need to be. Uh, no, no, no. Thank you for coming. I got it. Sure, but honestly, my motivation was to grill EJ about who set me up. He doesn’t seem very interested in finding out who’s behind it. Or who shot Michaels. Well, I’ll let you know if I find anything.

This is unbelievable. I’ll catch up with you later, mate. So you wound your way out of prison. How’d you pull that off? You son of a bitch. Start talking, now.

Hey, you made it. How’d the press conference go? I don’t know. What a joke. EJ called the conference before the press even arrived. We missed most of that slimeball. Did you confront him about your case? Yes. No news on that front. I wouldn’t hold your breath for anything to change there. The whole thing was bizarre.

Why? What happened? Well, get this. Stefan DiMera showed up. What?! He’s in jail. Not anymore.

You allowed Stefan to go free. How could you be so reckless? Me? You covered up the ID of your own shooter to cover for this slippery snake. Someday you’ll regret that. Speaking of which, how’s Susan doing these days?

What is your problem? You are my problem. You are my daughter’s problem. You helped put those drugs on the street that almost killed her. My God, those pills could have slipped through your hands. You know what? I get it. Holly is not a Demira. But she is family. You and I are family. Nicole, I feel terrible.

About what happened to Holly and I never intended on anybody getting hurt I only allowed those drugs to get picked up and dropped off the loading dock and that was under the threat of bodily harm to my wife You have to believe me when I tell you I had no idea those drugs were laced with opioids I Only did what I did to protect my wife.

That is it and I am so Sorry Well, you should be apologizing to my daughter. But you’re not going to because I don’t want you anywhere near her. Well, that may be difficult since we live in the same house. What? Oh, don’t be too sure about that. Hey, hey, hey. Are you okay? I, I, I don’t understand this. Chad, how could that loser be free after what he did?

I know Clyde was putting the screws to him, threatening Gabby, but he could have told the police or EJ or anyone. Someone could have done something. Because Stefan thinks he can handle everything on his own. Okay, well he’s handled it brilliantly this time. I know. I’m sorry. Why? You didn’t do anything. I know, but that’s my family.

And that should have never happened.

Paulina called again? Yes! And she knows that Chanel is in the sink. I just called 911.

Hey, Paulina, hey, it’s, uh, it’s Johnny. Johnny? Did you find her? No, not yet, but Julie’s calling for help. All right. And, and, uh, and I’m, and I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I didn’t tell you sooner. Oh, well, how long has she been missing? I don’t know. Maybe 30, 40 minutes. My God. Oh, she’s out, out there in the snow storms.

Oh, she could freeze to death. Okay, look, Paulina, please don’t panic, all right? I will find her. I’ll search this whole island if I have to. Well, you better. Oh, my poor baby girl. It’s a snowstorm out there. She’s cold and alone. What? Oh, I cannot just sit here and do nothing.

Hey, Shelby, Shelby, it’s me. Yes, you need to connect me to the Salem Public Works. Now!

So, um, Um, Looks like I won’t be paying a visit to Stefan at the jail today, after all. But didn’t Stefan confess to helping Clyde run drugs through the Bistro? Yep. Then how the hell is he out of jail? He must have made a deal with the judge. I mean, look, he’s a demerit. Can’t be surprised that he played dirty.

Maybe there was blackmail involved. This is so wrong. You have no idea the amount of ODs I have seen come through the hospital. Holly wasn’t even close to the worst of it. There’s lives being destroyed, families are grieving. It’s unbelievable, I mean, Stephan helping to poison his own town. Maybe EJ finagled a deal for him.

You think he got him out? I mean, it doesn’t seem like they care too much for each other, but You know, these DiMeras, they’re shady tricks, who knows, right? But Stefan, he was up to his neck in this mess with Clyde. I just can’t help but wonder if maybe he did play a role in making it seem like I was the guilty party in Harris shooting.

What if he did? Believe me, if Stefan was involved in throwing me under the bus, There’ll be hell to pay.

You are not your family, Chad. You bear no responsibility for what Stefan did. Quite the opposite, actually. I mean, you wrote that article about Stefan working for Clyde. No, Everett Lynch dug up that story. He’s the one that wrote it. Okay, but you published it and you didn’t have to. You put your family’s dirty laundry in the headlines.

That says so much about your integrity. Well, I’ve made my fair share of mistakes, Nicole. Haven’t we all? Look, you did the right thing. And I, you know, I remember when I was a TV reporter, And we had decisions that were hard to make, some tough calls. Wait a second, you were a reporter? Yeah, I mean a really long time ago.

Oh gosh, I remember those days. I loved it so much. You know, chasing after a story and figuring out how to tell it and working against the clock. Every day was exciting. Don’t get any ideas about reneging on our deal, brother. After that pathetic performance in court this morning. What deal? You signed over everything to me.

And you agreed to give back half. How can I give you back half a house? Shall we grab some chalk and draw a line through the center of the mansion? No, forget the house. DiMera, you and I go back to running DiMera together as co CEOs. I don’t think the board or the shareholders will want that. They will not want you back.

You’re a convicted felon. They made it very clear that it would not be a good idea for the company or you. Fine, you’re CEO, but I get everything else. I don’t think so.

You didn’t happen to tell Chad. About our little deal, did ya? Or Kristen? Certainly not. Good. Because I’d hate to see anybody else try to get their paws on what’s mine. You said earlier that your blackmail is better than my blackmail. You’re wrong. You see, EJ, if you don’t hold up your end of the deal, and give me back what’s rightfully mine, I’m gonna tell Nicole that you knew drugs were being moved through the bistro.

And that I came to you for help, and you refused to do a thing about it. You wouldn’t. Wouldn’t I? EJ, if Nicole finds out That you could have prevented Holly’s OD. She’ll never forgive you. And you know it.

Are they coming? Help is on the way. Uh, those first responders will be here as soon as they can get through and until then we just gotta sit tight. Damn it. I mean, where, where, where, where could she be? I’ve been everywhere. She could have slipped on the ice. She could have just gotten turned around with all the snow falling and Yeah, yeah, the uh, the visibility is pretty bad.

She could have just, she could have just lost the trail. Right. I just, I came back to get the, the sled in case uh, In case she’s hurt or something. I gotta get back out there and find my wife. What do you mean it’ll be hours before you can clear the bridge? Yes. Well, I realize that it’s still coming down, but that is not acceptable.

I’m the mayor of Salem and you will have the head of your plow crew call me immediately. I need you to understand that you are my mother, and I love you, and I need you. So don’t you dare talk about leaving this planet any time soon, because I will not put up with it. Do you hear me? Oh, alright, baby, alright.

You have officially gotten through to me, okay? I’m sorry, I’m so sorry. Yeah, you should be. Oh, well. Okay, how about this? Promise, I will not leave this planet for a very long, long time. And, in fact, I’m gonna go in there tomorrow and kick cancer’s ass so hard they won’t I don’t even know what hit it. That’s more like it.

Now I love you. Hang on, baby girl. Mama’s coming.
