Hello, handsome.

That’s all I get back? That’s no way to greet a woman with fantastic news. See, my new client is over the moon. Impressed as hell with my, uh, Legal prowess, which means, ka ching!

Hello? Do you have any idea how much ka ching that might be? Babe, you don’t tell me you’re so worried about our money. Listen, how can I not? I’ve been going through our finances again. We’re having serious problems, Sloan. Constantine

Hello, handsome. Oh,

that’s all I get back? That’s no way to greet a woman with fantastic news. See, my new client is over the moon, impressed as hell with my legal prowess. Which means Ka ching! Hello? Do you have any idea how much cha ching that might be? Baby, don’t tell me you’re still worried about our money. Listen, how can I not?

I’ve been going through our finances again. We’re having serious problems, Sloan. Constantine Meliodas,

that’s right. Mm hmm. I want you to scan public records and also look into birth certificates, death certificates, marriage license, church records, anything that can lead us to Constantine Sachs. Es Cristo. I really appreciate it, and I will anxiously await your call. Where are you, Ms. Melionis, and what If anything, do you know?


will find a way to stay, Katharina. To finish what I started. That is a promise.

Hands where I can see them. I need you to see something. And tell me what it means, and I will go away.

The card! It was right here! Where the hell is it? Hold me and let me get into a hazmat. Help

is on the way. The first responders will get here as soon as they can get through, until then we just have to sit tight. Damn it, Tim, where, where, where could she be? Oh honey, she could have slipped in the ice. She could be just turned around in the snow. Yeah, uh, visibility is pretty bad out there. She could have just lost the trail.

I just, I just came back to get the sled in case, in case she’s hurt or something. Look, I gotta get back out there and find my wife and I’m not coming back until I do. I don’t have to say this again, I know, but please be careful out there. Yeah.

Hey, Doc. John, I need your help. What’s going on? It’s Paulina. She’s gone. She was supposed to be isolating in her hospital room. Maybe they took her down for more tests? No, I checked the portal. She was meant to stay in her room until her radiation levels were low enough for her to leave. The nurse even checked the bathroom.

Her hospital gown and her robe were here, but there is no sign of her. Oh, geez. Now what that means That means Polia could be exposing people to harmful levels of radiation. My daughter is missing?!

Oh God, you heard me. Tell me the truth, Julie. 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 ten 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 going to be just walking through that door any second now.

I’m so glad I caught you. Doug filled me in on everything. Please tell me that Chanel is safe. No, no, not yet. Uh, Johnny has just gone out to look for her again. What about the first responders? Well, they can’t get through. Uh, the, the road to the cabin is completely blocked. Oh, wait a minute. I I I think that’s him.

Listen, baby, I’ll call you back. I’ll call you back.

Oh, my God!

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

Paulina? Uh, stand back. Aren’t you supposed to be in isolation? Yes, yes I am, but I couldn’t sit in that room when my baby girl was missing. Well Johnny just went outside to find her. Well, what are we doing standing here? You go one way, I’ll go the other. Oh, right. So have you used this accounting system before?

Many times. Yeah? Well, I don’t know if it’s software or what, because it’s in the red. Well, are you sure we’ve considered, you know, the expenses of a newborn baby? Yeah, a hundred percent, because I’ve been extremely careful when it comes to that. Mind if I take a look? Yeah, sure. Okay.

Alright. And there is the problem. Honey, and this is how you solve it. What are you doing? Some of these entries are fixed and some of them are variables. Meaning? Meaning fixed expenses remain static for a set period of time. Oops. Whereas the variables will fluctuate. Yep, it’s really all just a matter of knowing how to navigate the tabs at the bottom of the screen.

It’s quite simple, actually, when you get used to it. If it’s that simple, then why are people still using accounts? Because people are lazy. Because for most people, this isn’t fun. But lucky for you, I don’t mind doing it. So, I’m going to sit here and work on it and you can let your brain just relax, okay? I promise, I’ll work it out.

Now, where is our beautiful baby boy? Um, he’s in the crib, unless he’s learned to levitate. Do not even joke like that. I’m gonna go get him, because I think we could all use a little Jude cuddle time, okay? Yeah, sure. Okay.

Mrs. Kiriakis, this just came for you. Oh, thank you, Ellie. Um Could you get me some more tea, please? Thank you, dear.

Is everything all right, Mrs. Kiriakis? No. No, I’m afraid it’s not.

John, anything? Not from Greece, no, but I just learned that Chanel Dupree is missing. What? Missing? Snowstorm. She and Johnny went up to the Horton cabin. Yeah, I knew that. Yeah, well, Chanel went out, never came back. Johnny called 911, the ferries aren’t running. First responders can’t get over the bridge until it’s plowed.

So he’s out there searching for her? No, not by himself. According to Public Works, our mayor, a. k. a. Paulina Price, has commandeered a snow plow and has gone across the bridge to Smith Island, so she’s out there looking for Chanel on her own. So that’s why she left isolation. Wow. We have to notify the first responders.

They can’t go anywhere near her. She’s radioactive. Is

he not the most precious creature you’ve ever seen? It’s amazing how settled down he’s become since the christening. Yeah, God works in mysterious ways, right? Yeah, he sure does. Maybe I should be more specific, and my prayer is to get more clients. You’re not so stressed about that, are you, babe? Look, I know that work’s been slow, but with the receivables from Steph and Damir, things are gonna look up.

I promise. Listen, I just don’t want you to have to carry the entire load. I don’t mind. Well, I do. You know what? I’ve actually been, I’ve been thinking a lot about this and I think I’m gonna start putting a little bit more focus into editorial photography. That’s a great idea. Maybe you can work for the Spectator.

Or Bella. Even though I think the Spectator will probably pay more because it’s daily versus monthly. And Bella’s launch kind of was a flop, I heard. Yeah, I heard that too. So why don’t you go and see if you can persuade someone at the Spectator that your brilliant photography is invaluable to them. You know what, I think I’m gonna do that.

Will you be okay with Jude for a few hours? Come on, of course. Good luck. Okay.


your daddy’s such a good man, Jude. He’s trusting and kind. Oh, but dear God, if he knew that you and Nicole were your real parents, he would have He would never trust me again, Woody. He would actually never want to have anything to do with me. We just can’t have that, can we? That’s why it’s our little secret.

So I can be your mommy forever. Is there anything I can

do to help, Mrs. Kiriakis? Not just the tea. Thank you, Ellie. Is it you who cleaned my room? Well, something very important of mine is missing. A red and black card, like a playing card, about this big. Have you seen it? Are you sure? Perhaps you threw it out. Or maybe you stole it. Constantine? How dare you talk to Ellie like that?

I am so terribly sorry for my outburst, Ellie. It was completely unfair for me to make that accusation. Yes, it was. Ellie has been a model employee for several years. I understand. But The card that went missing, it is of tremendous sentimental value to me. It is a memento I have had since the time my daughter died.

But again, I am terribly sorry. I should not have taken my frustration out on you. I’ll ask the staff if anyone has seen the card. Thank you.

I have never seen you like this. Constantine. You know how I am when it comes to my daughter, Catarina and a card. It is something that she carried with her when she wore her costume for a Procre the year she died. Pore. Yes, it is the Greek version of Mardi Gras or Halloween. I see. Well, the card is in his house somewhere.

We’ll find it. Thank you very much for reassuring me. I do apologize for the way I behaved. I am sorry for the way I have acted. It’s all right. Ellie obviously has forgiven you, and so do I. Maggie, you always have a way of calming me down. Well, I don’t know, um, how calm you’ll be when I tell you what I just learned.

What have you learned? Unfortunately, Constantine, it’s unsettling news.

All right. First responders have been notified of the radiation threat. Now, I offered to go up there myself, but they said, no, just just sit tight. We got a hand on this. What was Paulina thinking? Obviously she wasn’t thinking, Doc. Come on, she just went full Mama Bear mode and just put her blinders on.

This is like the plot of a bad B movie, you know? Except that it isn’t funny. Paulina is exposing everybody she comes in contact with to radiation. Obviously all she cared about was saving her daughter. And if anybody knows a thing about that, it’s you and me. I’ve been nearly losing Sammy, and then, uh, Doc, we’ve been there.

Yeah, we have. I remember those difficult times. We got through them, because you were strong. You were amazing. And you, you helped me stay strong, keep the faith. You kept me from falling apart. Funny. Because I remember you being the strong one keeping me together through the whole thing. No. Yeah. You got it backwards.

No, no, no. But I appreciate you thinking me that way. Thank you for the credit for being strong when I actually wasn’t. It’s cause you’re my person. And I love you with all my heart and I still consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth just to be able to be with you. Share my life with you, Doc.

Gosh, and I feel the same way. I’m just lucky you are so amazing. You are, actually. Might be wrong. I told you. Oh,

easy, baby. Easy. I can’t believe you came looking for me. I’m so, so damn relieved that I found you. You just sit, sit there on the sofa, okay?

Uh, when I first, first heard your voice, I, I thought it was the angels. I was hearing . Oh no. Just me. Oh, no. We don’t need the angels visiting you for a long, long time. Well, you are my angel. You’re on Earth. Oh. Oh. Chanel what’s was the whimper? , or when I heard that, I thought, yep, that’s my baby . I know that whimper.

Anyway. I think that I must have, uh, slipped through the snow and then got caught between those rocks. And I was trying to get out and I tried and I tried but I just couldn’t get through. And then I was, I was like trying not to panic. Yeah, shh, shh, shh. It’s okay now, baby. It’s okay, sweetheart. Hey, wait.

Mama, aren’t you supposed to be in the hospital? Yes, yes, I am. But, I, I, well. I guess I shouldn’t have left, but, uh, when I heard that you were missing, oh, honey, it was like, it was like the world suddenly turned dark. And, well, I just couldn’t, I couldn’t sit there and do nothing. I had to find my baby. I had to find my precious daughter.

You have a good nap, sweetie, while mommy makes a phone call.

Lady Whistleblower here. What can you tell me that’s either funny, raunchy, mind blowing, appalling, or ideally all of the above? Cut the crap, Leo. You know it’s me. Ah, yes, my friend, enemy, co conspirator wrapped up into one long legged grouchy package. To what do I owe the pleasure? Look, Eric sent his way over to the office.

Really? To see me because I’m such great company, not to mention a laugh riot and he can’t get enough of me? To ask about photography work. I was hoping that you could help him out. As much as I would love to work with your hunky husband. Also great company, though definitely not a laugh riot. We have a full time shutterbug on staff.

Leo? He needs this. And so do I. A bit of context, please. Oh, come on. You’ve got to be kidding me. You know what this is about. Finances. He wants to make more money. Well, Sloane, while I am flattered that you reached out thinking I have even a smidgen of power here, although I am certainly beloved and respected for being a great writer, I do not.

Listen, fairy godfather, I’m not taking no for an answer. So I need you to work some of that Leo magic, okay? Because you’re not only beloved and respected, according to you, of course, but no one knows better than I how persuasive and charming you can be when you set your mind to it. Oh, I do love it when you kiss up.

I’m counting on you, Leo. And remember your vow of silence with regard to certain delicate subjects, okay? Unless you want your wings clipped. Oh, and here come the threats. Just make sure Eric gets the job. Or else. Hold up, Miss Bossy Pants. I’m the one blackmailing you, not the other way around, okay?

I’m sorry, I gotta go. Leo!

This is a lovely surprise. Sorry, I didn’t call. No apology necessary. You are welcome here anytime, whether it’s announced, unexpected, or just plain random and spontaneous. Who are you blackmailing these days? Oh, who am I not blackmailing? That’s the real question. No, no, no. Blackmail is probably too strong a word.

It’s more of a tactic. See, some of my lady whistleblower sources need to think that if they don’t give me something really juicy, I’m going to print a nasty old blind item pointed right at them. Gossip really is a dirty business. God knows. Anyway, what’s up? Well, I was kind of hoping I’d catch Everett or Chad.

Just as long as it’s not Xander. Let me guess, but I’m going to do it Jeopardy style. This guy is throwing his hat in the ring at the spectator for any photography work he might be able to snag. Who is Eric? Hey! Eric. And that was the Daily Double. So, you are in the money, my friend. Aren’t you, uh No, I was kind of looking out to see if there was anything.

Job related. I, uh, just intuitive that way. Sorry to say though, I am here solo today. Xander and Chad are at that DA’s presser, and Everett, I believe, is still out trying to find himself. As we all are, of course, because to quote Aristotle, knowing oneself is the beginning of all wisdom. Right. But if you have a portfolio, or a link to a digital one, I would be more than happy to put in a good word for the father of my fairy godchild.

Uh, yeah. I can send you a link right now. Fantastic.

Oh, those poor kids. All they wanted was a mini honeymoon and they ended up with a blizzard. And now Chanel’s missing. Let’s hope they find her. It’s all we’ve been hoping for. I’m so glad you’re here. I’m so glad you’re not in Greece.

Doc, there are so many holes in my memory about what happened there and why. And now Steve is as determined to get to the truth as I am. He’s a good friend. And a great PI, so we’re on this, Doc. We’re putting feelers out there to try to find Constantine’s ex and see if she knows anything. Who knows? Maybe she was there when this whole thing went down.

Maybe, oh, I don’t know, maybe that’s the reason they got a divorce. Or maybe, or maybe what, John? Come on, just say it. Maybe you shouldn’t do anything until you’re prepared for what you’ll find.

Tell me Maggie, what is the bad news? I heard back from my legal team. And, uh, they tried every angle. Uh, but yet they did not find a path forward. To extending your visa. I see. I am so, so sorry, Constantine. No, no, no, no, no. Do not be sorry. You have nothing to apologize for. You’ve gone above and beyond. But to no avail, obviously.


Well, I’m going to miss the place. So very much.

And you, most of all.

I’ll miss you too. I was, um Hopeful that we could figure out something. You know, find a way for you to stay. I will go pack my bags.

Your Uncle Leo better come through. Otherwise he’s going to lose a lot more than his very godfather title. Link received. I will make sure Chad gets it ASAP. Like I said, I’ll do everything I can to help the father of my favorite little man. I appreciate that, Leo. Speaking of that little man, he gets more and more adorable by the day, doesn’t he?

I’m a bit pious, but, uh, I think he does. I know he does. Look, if you guys can ever squeeze me in for a visit, or if ever you need a babysitter again, let me know. I adore that little kid. Oh. I think he likes me too. No, he does. And you know why? He lights up when he sees you. Oh, you’re just saying that. No, really, truly.

I mean, he really likes being around you. Well, that makes my day. It’s too bad Jude is the only person in this town who lights up when he sees me, though. Come on, that’s not true. People tolerate me, which is different from being liked, of course. It’s not that I don’t understand it, I’m not exactly what you would call a great guy, you know?

Mind you, I have my moments, and I strive to be that. Well, decent, anyway. But I have a long way to go. And to quote Aristotle again, I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who conquers his enemies. For the hardest victory is over self. So true. Yeah, so true.

I have to be ready for the truth of what happened in Aria. And, if you were my therapist and not my wife, I think you would probably be encouraging me to follow Mike Nutt here and not worry about something that hasn’t even happened yet. You had to use that one on me, didn’t you? It’s my guy from Greece.

Constantine Melionis married Elizabeth Sedaris. October 13th, 1970 in Adia, Greece. Call me now. We got it, Doc. Better make that call.

Hey, Paulina. Hey, it’s, uh, it’s Johnny. Johnny? Did you find her? No, not yet. But, Julie’s calling for help. Alright, and, uh, and I’m sorry. I’m sorry I didn’t tell you sooner. 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 snowstorms, cold, she could freeze to death!

Okay, but Paulina? Please don’t panic, alright? I will find her. I’ll search this whole island if I have to. You better! Oh, my poor baby girl. It’s a snowstorm out there. She’s cold and alone.

Oh, I can not just sit here and do nothing. Oh, Oh. Oh. Oh. Hey, Shelby. Shelby, it’s me. Yes, you need to connect me to the Salem Public Works. Now!

I shouldn’t have been that close to you, baby girl, when I brought you inside. Okay, well, it already happened, so there’s no need to beat yourself up about it. I pray to God it wasn’t a mistake. You were just doing what you thought was right, and just Happen to be a little radioactive it happens. Oh, I’m glad you can joke about it Seriously mama all joking aside You saved my life My god, I didn’t call Abraham.

I was so crazed. I bet he’s worried out of his mind When I saw that snow cloud I thought maybe someone had And they did Someone found you. Here I am. Are you okay? I mean, how, what happened? How did, how did you? Paulina? That was you. You were the one driving that snowplow. I wasn’t going to let anything stop me from finding my precious daughter.

And she did. Oh, I was losing my mind. I’ve never been so panicked in my life. Ow! Ow! Ow! Oh, oh, it’s just, it’s her ankle. It’s probably just a sprain. But I did everything I could to, to be careful. But when Julie told me that Chanel Julie! My God! She’s still out there!

It has to be here! Dammit!

We need to talk.


come on Jude, please. All I’m asking for is a five minute break. Okay, two minutes. I know it was too good to be true. Every time I think I’m in the clear, something goes wrong. Just like my life. But it was all worth it, right? Right, Jude?

Thanks again, Leo. I am happy to help. Oh, I should probably grab this. Yeah, I should get going too, so I’ll talk soon. You bet. Hello. So, how’d it go? He just left. And? And I’m going to do my best. I will give the guy nothing less than a top shelf ringing endorsement. I’ll work every angle I can.

Thank God! Oh God! Oh God, it’s so good to see you! How are you? Me? Oh, I’m fine. Now I know how all the penguins feel when they’re marching across Antarctica. Thanks for that phone call, Johnny. Yeah, well, it’s a miracle that our phones are still even working. Yes. Yes, it is. But how are you? How are you, sweetie?

Um, you know what? Um, I am grateful to be indoors, and other than that, I think I might have sprained my ankle. Oh. 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. Now, Paulina Drove it across the bridge to rescue Chanel.

I told you I was going to 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. Paulina, you expose all of us. I just hope to God you haven’t done more harm than good.

Well, I guess I was hoping this was all going to be good news, but We know how these things work out. Yeah. Uh, just tell your guys to keep on looking there, and as soon as they find anything, just Dios Cristo.

Before you share your news, I want to share mine with you. I just spoke to Abe. Good. They found Janelle. Oh, thank God for that. Yeah. She is safe and sound. Uh, just a sprained ankle. Nothing else. All right. Well, what about Paulina? Paulina is keeping her distance until the first responders arrive. I’m guessing your news isn’t as good as mine.

Unfortunately, no. All right, tell me. My source has found Constantine’s divorce papers. He and his ex both signed them right before she disappeared. Without a trace. Hasn’t been a sign of her since.

I apologize for the mess. It is a result of my profound frustration. I understand. Um, I’m sorry about Katerina’s card. None of the staff have seen it, at least not so far. Well, that is just another disappointment. Which does not compare to my leaving Salem and you, which is what I am most sad about, of course.

And, uh, our precious little Victoria. She is one of the very few people who actually likes my singing. Well, uh, lucky for her she’ll still be able to hear it. Perhaps over a video call, yes, but that is not the same. I was thinking, uh, in person. In person? I do not understand. How could that happen? Well, it’ll happen if you say yes.

To what? To my proposal. Constantine Miliones. Will you marry me?
