Oh, I swear, Kayla, only you can make a hazmat suit look chic. You are lucky to be alive, Paulina. Why, my number’s that bad? Well, you know, actually, physically, you checked out fine. And your numbers, although lower, are still too high for me to send you home. I mean, what were you thinking, sneaking out of here and driving up to Smith Island?

Look, look, I’m, I’m very sorry that I worried everyone. Well, luckily, I mean, although we did know that you had left the hospital, we didn’t know that you had commandeered a snow plow or driving on snowy roads in the middle of the night. Not to mention, You exposed Johnny and Chanel and Julie to radiation, and obviously that’s a big deal.

There’s gonna be an investigation, reports gonna be written. I know all that, Kayla. I know all that. I’m sorry I put people’s lives at risk, but don’t you understand? I felt I had no choice. Could you sit still and do nothing if your daughter was missing? I had to rescue my baby girl. Nothing, nothing was more important than that.

Well, I guess we can check being dagger countered off the bucket list. Dagger countered? I’m not sure if that’s a word. Yeah, I’m not so sure it’s a bucket list item either. Yeah, that was stupid. Definitely an experience. Slightly harrowing, right? More than slightly. I kept thinking that thing was gonna start howling like a fire alarm when they were checking me.

Yeah. Yeah, me too. Honey, I am so sorry that you had to go through all this because of me. Hey. Because of you, no. No, no way. Yes, it is. Because of me. Because if I hadn’t gone out into that snowstorm and Looking for me. Yeah. By the way. Okay, but still, if I had just trusted that you would come back like you said you would, and I would have just waited there, then I wouldn’t have got stuck between those stupid rocks, and Mama wouldn’t have risked so much.

Hey, you know, all that matters, okay? Hey. Is that she found you. Even if it means I didn’t get to be your hero. Okay. Yeah, you are my hero. Okay. You are strong and loyal and honest. And everything else that makes up a hero. Yeah, I don’t know about that. Yeah, well, I do. And on top of that, you make me happier than I’ve ever been.

Yeah? Oh, yeah. And I mean, what is more heroic than that?

Yeah, that’s right. The cabin has been vacated, and out of an abundance of caution, we’ve got Chanel, Julie, and Johnny being checked out at the hospital. I’m sure Johnny will call you soon. Love you too, Sammy. Give Sydney a kiss for me. Okay, bye. Oh, you are back from the monastery. Yeah. Well, I bet you never thought you’d be saying those words to me.

I did not. I was Lucas. Well, given the fact that he is required to live a life of chastity, poverty, and obedience, I mean, he’s hanging in. Temporary. He’ll be out of there soon. Yeah, I hope so. But no one knows. I mean, no one really knows anything. You know, Clyde has escaped, so does that mean that Lucas is no longer safe in the monastery?

I mean, does he have to go back to Statesville? There are so many questions. Just a whole lot of silence. Yeah, no, I get it. I get it. Lucas is in limbo right now, as you are. It’s not a great place to be. No, no, and it’s driving me insane. So, uh, is Harris upstairs? Because he has things that he needs to tell me.

You know, he will not answer any of my phone calls. Uh, he slept for work. Just a little while ago. Okay. I’m gonna go down to the police station. I’m gonna find him. Okay, well Good luck, Katie. Yeah, I’m gonna need it. Okay.

Closed for renovations. Come on. Everybody knows that the place is shut down because Stefan got arrested. Among other things. You regretting being dragged into this yet? No, I’m fine. There’s no way in hell I’m gonna let you do this alone. I’ll be out here standing watch in case you need me. Damn. You know, if Clyde hadn’t ordered me to go find his little black book with his narco contacts in it, it’s the last place I would be.

I know, but it couldn’t be the break that we’re waiting for. If we find Clyde, we put him away for good. Let’s just get this done, okay? Good thing you got on one of these, huh?


it’s not the Ritz, but it’s pleasant enough. Well, it’s only for a couple of days. And then I’ll be, I’ll be back at home. Whoa. But still having to stay a few feet away from everybody. Strange how a little tiny pill can radiate for days. Hey, hi. Hey, Kayla. I take full responsibility for pulling this escape. I, I should have been keeping an eye on her.

It is not your fault. I was told actually that you were covering her event. Fundraiser. I just wish she had called me before she did something so reckless. So, uh, how is she doing? Well, her levels are still higher than I’d like, but if she follows the proper protocol, I think that she could probably go home tomorrow.

Great, great, great. Look, Kayla, I promise you from here on out, I will keep her in line. Hmm, well, good luck with that.

So, now what will we both just do? Keep our distance till we’re radiation free. Oh my god, if we have to isolate, I am going to go nuts. Okay, you two. Hey. Hey, uh, Dr. Johnson, is my ankle broken? Uh, no. I checked with the team and the x rays show no breaks, no fractures. Just a very serious sprain. Okay, well that is good news, and um, it’s honestly starting to feel a little bit better already.

Great. Great. Well, uh, you just need to keep it wrapped up and elevate it, ice it to minimize the swelling, and maybe try to stay off of it as much as you can, all right? Okay, I can do that. Good. On other news, as you know, you were exposed to more radiation than Johnny and Julie, so your levels are a little higher, but I don’t think it’s anything to worry about.

So, then Well, you’re saying we’re good to go? I am, and you are, both of you. Great, what, what a relief. Yeah, but listen, like I said to Julie, if you feel anything, weakness, nausea, dizziness, anything, you come back here and let us check you out, all right? Copy that. Okay. Get out of here, you two. Do you know what I’m gonna do now?

I’m gonna kiss you.

Oh, there you are. Kate, listen, now’s, now’s not a good time. Okay, well, you’re going to need to make it a good time, you see, because I’ve left you three messages and not a return phone call, nothing. Okay, Kate, listen. Okay, and the other thing, you’ve been avoiding me at the pub. Now, why is that, Harris? Why are you avoiding me?

I’m glad to be getting out of here. Because of Tripp and Wendy? Yeah. I just don’t want them caught in the line of fire again now that Clyde’s still in my hair. 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.

The hell are you doing?

I was just picking up the last of my things. You got a lot of personal things behind the wine bottles? Look, I was just, uh, Okay, you caught me. Alright, I figured a couple bottles of good wine was the least this place owed me. Why am I being interrogated? What are you doing here? What am I I own the place.

I’m doing inventory. Did you see the sign on the door? Can’t wait to see it in a couple of weeks. Yeah, it’s kind of hard to miss. Look, EJ let me keep the restaurant when he kicked me out at DiMera. And I figured my people had been out of work long enough, and with Clyde out of the picture We’re going to reopen and make this the best damn restaurant in the state.

Kate, I have not been avoiding you. I’ve been extremely busy recovering from nearly being killed. I’m trying to track down Clyde Weston. Oh, yes, well, all of us, everyone wants the police to find Clyde Weston now, don’t we? But you’re not doing that single handedly, correct? You see, because I need you to focus on getting Lucas out of that monastery and out of Statesville permanently.

Because as you remember, remember that sting that got 13 dealers off the street? Well, that was thanks to Lucas and your promise. Okay, we knew dismantling Clyde’s syndicate inside Statesville was going to take some time, even with everything Lucas gave us. Well, it’s really easy for you to be patient, isn’t it?

Because it’s not your son who’s in that monastery, slowly going insane. Okay, I understand. No. No, you don’t understand, you see, because you almost got my son killed. You got him pulled into all of this and then you abandoned him. So if you want to talk and tell, I suggest you do a deep dive on me and what I’ve been capable of, especially when it comes to protecting my children.

I would do anything for my girls, Abraham. You should not be shocked by that. My daughter was lost in a snowstorm. I had no choice but to do what I did. That’s where we disagree. You put people at risk, Paulina. Okay, I’ll own that. You, you risked your own life. It was a calculated risk. I was told the radioactivity would decrease with time.

The doctors hadn’t cleared you, Paulina. It wasn’t safe for you to leave. Full stop. I know, I know, I know. Not only did I put lives at risk, including my own, I abused my power and potentially damaged my reputation. It’s all, you know, all been pointed out to me already. But I, I will repeat, Abraham, my daughter was missing.

I was afraid I would never, never see her again. And now No way was I just going to sit in this room and twiddle my thumbs. Paulina, I love that you’re the force of nature that you are. But this was, this was ill advised, to say the least. I’ll admit, I’ll admit, uh, I took a chance. That it was a risky thing to do, but we all, we all made it out of that place.

Very treacherous situation alive because of me and Chanel was reminded once again that I will stop at nothing. Nothing to make sure that she’s safe. That’s a win win in my book. Uh, so. Now, you know, that’s all settled. Did anyone find my phone? Okay, easy.

You alright? Hurts pretty bad, huh? Yeah, just when I put too much pressure on it. Stop doing that. Yeah, well, why didn’t I think of that? I’m trying to help. Alright. Okay, that’s better. See? Uh huh. See? Uh huh. Man, what a week, right? In the hospital, limping, radioactive. Yeah, but the rest of it was perfect though, right?

I mean, you know, Julie showing up as we’re making out on the couch, thinking the cabin was empty. Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah. I had successfully blocked that out, so thanks for reminding me. Yeah, no problem. And then, all of us getting trapped together in a massive snowstorm, which led to you breaking your ankle.

It’s just a sprain. Well, that was embellishing for dramatic. Oh, yes, of course. I am an aspiring filmmaker, after all. Yeah, I totally understand. And then, the cherry on top. Mama Paulina showing up and giving us all radiation poisoning. Yeah, well, at least she got to drive a snow plow. Yeah, it’s a shame there were no videos of that.

Or even pictures. You know what? I think That we should give it another try. What do you say? We head back to the cabin for round two? Are you crazy? Absolutely not. Okay.

Well, there she is, the one and only, Dr. Johnson. Hello, brother of mine. Great to see you, sis. You too. Everything okay? Well, it’s been quite a day, actually. Well, sounds like you need a Carolyn Brady special. Ah, some mom’s clam chowder? And a shoulder to lean on. Yeah, I need that more than you know. Okay, well, have a seat.

I gotcha.

Ooh, congratulations. From CEO of a multinational corporation to barkeeper. America loves its riches to rags to her. You mind hurrying things up? I’ve got work to do. Yeah, in the restaurant that we built together. Also the restaurant that we ran drugs out of. Have you forgotten that? No, I have not forgotten that.

My son was kidnapped and nearly killed. And my wife was beaten in prison, leg broken. Have you forgotten that too? You know what? You tried to kill Harris twice, so I don’t know why you are giving me grief. You should still be behind bars. What are you, judge, jury, and executioner now? Is that it? Look, I’m just saying, you’re really lucky that you have got a brother with some pull, okay?

Because I’m not. Those, those get out of jail free cards, they really do come in handy, don’t they? You know, that would be an astute observation if it were accurate. But it turns out the get out of jail free card came from Harris. And you know what? I’m not going to sit here and take the blame for a deal that went sideways.

Well, you know that, that your attempt, your attempt at accountability, It’s inspiring. You should also be kissing my feet, bowing down and kissing my feet because I took the blame for this. For everything. You know what? And you were just as guilty as I was. Oh, you are a saint. You are a saint, Stefan. I mean, like, there’s no two ways about it.

I have my regrets, okay? For the things that I’ve done these past several months.

Including what happened between us. Ooh. Huuuuh. Huuh. Oooh. Oooh. Huuuh. Haaaah. HAAHH. Huh. Oooh. I’m sorry, but we’re out late.

But I would do it all again to protect my family. So would I.

You’re right, I would.

Stefan, there’s something that I’ve been meaning to tell you. Look, I actually came here tonight because I

You gonna finish that sentence? Because

I was Feeling nostalgic. About this place. You know, in all the good times I had here, we had here. Were there any? Come on, of course there were.

I guess I just wanted to see the place one last time. Okay.

Okay, I guess I have, and I guess that’s it. I have everything I need. I’m gonna need to get your keys back.

Wow, Kayla, damn. Look, I know you’re used to taking on a lot, but this is way too much, even for you. No, no, no, I can handle it, and I don’t mean to sound like I’m complaining. You have every right to complain. Well, not when I remind myself about what other people have been going through. I mean, that nightmare at Smith Island.

I mean, it’s such a relief that Chanel was found and that everybody, everybody’s alright. Yeah, but what the hell was Paulina thinking? Well, she wasn’t, obviously. Well, she was, but, you know, it was very tunnel vision. I mean, all that mattered to her was saving her child. Which, I mean, of course, we can relate to that.

I mean, every parent wants that. I just think that there are other ways to accomplish it, you know? Anyway, I’m sure she feels like her decision is now vindicated. Well, not sure she should. But, as you say and as we both know, we’d do anything to protect and save our kids. Speaking of which, I haven’t seen Stephanie around lately.

How’s she doing? Well, she’s, she’s going through a rough time. I’m sorry to hear that. Yeah, I mean, I know she wouldn’t want me to go into details about it. I’ll just say that she She’s had her heart broken again, you know, and I, I just wish there was something I could do to make it easier for her, you know?

Magic fix? But I know all I can really do is just be there for her. Well, she’s very lucky. Anybody that’s got you on their side is better off for it. I don’t know about that, but I certainly would do anything for that girl. And those boys of mine. Well, just don’t go stealing any snowplows. Well, that’s not likely.

Kayla. You do know, I am always here for you. Along with Mars Chatter. You are the best brother in the world. Well, I think I’m gonna go to the restroom before I head out.

Any luck? Oh yeah, I ran into Harris on the way to the police station and we had a few words. How’d that go? I told him to get Lucas freed or else.

You know, maybe I should just hang on to the keys. You know, in case of an emergency. Or something, you know, I could always fill in if you need me. I certainly have a lot of time on my hands since I’m still looking for work. I appreciate that, but I think I’m good. And for what it’s worth, I think you and I need to, uh Make a clean break.


You take care of yourself. You too.

Well that happened. Yeah, twice. Yeah. That’s incredible. Yeah.

I made a freakin mistake. Yeah.

Well? Clyde’s book’s nowhere to be found. Are you sure? Just let me go back in there with you. No, no, no, no. I don’t think that’s such a good idea. Stefan’s in there right now. Yeah, he, uh, that’s why I came out so quickly. He says he’s back here to do inventory before he reopens. Things got pretty heated between the two of us, and he made me turn my keys back in.

Okay, you know, we should, we should go. No, no, no, you know what, I’m just gonna hang back and talk to Stefan here, just, just the two of us.

Play nice.

I’m unarmed, detective. Just so you know. I’m not. Just so you know. Okay, why don’t you say what you need to say. You know, I have a question. How the hell are you out of jail?

Well, I would say that we ran the gauntlet. Came out on the other side, relatively unscathed. We spoke to my mother, waved at yours through some protective glass, of course. Let’s blow this popsicle stand, huh? Absolutely. All right. Okay, okay. Okay, hold on. I am telling you, it is not going to be easy going up those stairs to our bedroom.

That’s why we’re not going back there just yet. Okay, don’t even joke like that. I told you I am never going back to that. Yes, okay, I know, you’ve made your point very clear. I, uh, actually had something else in mind. Another surprise? Yes, but you’re gonna like this one, I promise.

Let’s go.

Ava! Oh, hey, Kayla. Um, nice to see you, but if you’ll excuse me, I’ve gotta No, no, no. As a matter of fact, I won’t. Oh, okay. Here it comes. Where do I even begin? Oh, I don’t know. How about my, um, reckless disregard for anyone but myself? Oh, you think you’re so smart, don’t you? But you never learn. Well, you know something?

There’s gonna be a reckoning. With all the damage that you’ve caused my family and the people that I care about. You know, I don’t have time for this. And nearly getting your son killed? By the way, I mean, how do you even sleep at night? I tried to protect my son. I begged him to go to China with Wendy. He didn’t listen.

Oh, well, that’s a great solution. Trying to convince your son to leave the continent so he stays out of the crossfire of your crimes. And if you can fathom what it would do to Steve if Trip lost his life, he is my son. Can you even fathom what it would do to me? But you would have been responsible for it!

Of course, you probably would have figured out a way to blame somebody else. Okay. You have no idea what I had to do to save my son. Oh, damn it, Ava! You wouldn’t have had to save him if you wouldn’t have gotten involved with Clyde Weston in the first place. Oh, my God, how dare you? It’s just another one of your kind.

Conniving little self centered schemes. And then you have the cruelty to drag Steve into it. Forcing him to break that psycho out of prison. Oh, yeah. I know all about it. Okay, then maybe you want to keep your voice down? Unless you want to see your husband behind bars. You abuse people, Ava. And you abuse Steve over and over and over again.

And I’m going to tell you something right now. You stay the hell away from my husband. You understand me. What’s going on out here?

Now the only thing that makes sense is you and EJ must have cooked up some kind of deal or your ass would still be locked up. You seem very passionate about that. No, I’m passionate about making the world a safer place. You tried to kill me and you confess to working for a drug lord. But it made me, maybe the judge realized that I did what I did because my wife’s life was threatened.

And also that I offered the police and the prosecution useful evidentiary information that led to the significant dismantling of said drug lord’s operation. So why don’t you cool your crusader routine? The judge would never have considered TimeServe without a recommendation from the DA. Oh, you got something on EJ, don’t you?

And not only is that conjecture, it’s also projection because you had something on me, right? You forced my confession, remember? Oh, isn’t that a neat little story that you have? But you’re not denying it, you have something on your brother. All works in mysterious ways, detective. What an arrogant son of a bitch you are.

Be that as it may, for what it’s worth, I am truly sorry for shooting you. And I was relieved when I found out that he would pull through. I know that may be hard to believe, but it is the truth. And if I could go back, I would change so many things.

Alright, so what do you wish you could go back and change? Helping Clyde escape, maybe? No, no, I did not help Clyde escape prison. Yeah? I don’t believe you. I swear on my life. So you’re telling me right now Clyde has not reached out to you since he escaped? No, if he had, I would have alerted the authorities immediately.

Why? Because you’re an upstanding citizen now? There is no gray area for me, as far as Clyde is concerned. For all I hope, he has run far, far away, never to be seen or heard from again. Or better off, dead. Now, I did a lot that I’m not proud of. Just like Ava. Just like you. But I swear to everything I hold dear in this life, I had nothing to do with that monster escaping prison.

Then who the hell did?

Everything is fine. We are, uh, just clearing up a few things here. You sure about that? Yep, yep, I’m sure. Yeah. And if I could just have the key to our room, I will be out of everyone’s hair. What room? Harris’s and mine. I’m staying with him. Your name’s not on that lease, Avis. And no, I can’t give you a key, nor can you stay there.

What? Are you really that puritanical? You’re gonna police who can stay in whose room? No. This is personal, actually, after what you did to my sister, turning her life upside down. You can stay somewhere. Sure as hell won’t be under my roof. Okay, well we’ll see what Harris has to say about that. Yeah, I’m the landlord.

This is my pub. There’s all the rooms above it. I call the shots here, Ava.


Thank you. My pleasure.

Where did they find my phone? Out near where you found Chanel. I’ll go pick it up tomorrow. Does that mean you’re not angry anymore?

I don’t love what you did. But I get why you did it and I’m willing to let it go. Oh, bless you, eh? Besides, I’ve been more worried than angry. Oh, well, no need for worry either anymore. Everyone is fine and safe and I’ll soon be radiation free and home with my wonderful husband. I love you. I love you too, Abraham.

Okay. Get it? Get it? Yeah? Okay. Oh, wow. Wow, did you set this up? Yeah, well, the rooms don’t just come like this. Okay, well, you know what? It is a shame because they definitely should. This is just so romantic and lovely. And you know what? I think every hotel should come with a room that has rose petals and candles and champagne.

Yeah, well, I’ll make a suggestion to the manager, okay? And carry me over the threshold again. Well, Dr. Johnson said. To keep you off your feet. Oh, wow. You better be planning to keep me off my feet all night long. Oh, that is the plan. Okay. Oh, uh, wait, question. Um, you checked us in under Mr. and Mrs. John Doe.

Why? Well, you know, I thought after everything we’ve been through, it might be nice if no one could track us down. You know, no more unexpected surprises like back at the cabin. Oh. Wow, you really thought of everything, didn’t you? And, not to spoil the moment or anything, but seriously, how did you set this up?

Ah, it was nothing, you know, a couple calls to the concierge here and to the staff back at home. Some greasing of palms. Oh, and I almost forgot.

Are you gonna serenade me? Indeed, I am. Oh, God. Oh, how lucky am I. Not only do I have the sexiest man in the world, but he also sings and plays the guitar. Yeah. I can also play Chopsticks on the piano and Hot Cross Buns on the recorder. He’s multi talented. Okay, here it goes. Okay.

Baby, your love has been a savior. Every day without your touch is like a wrecking wheel.


and I find myself alone here,

but every time I see your smile, how the stones, they clear.

Well, I’ve been working this time say, me, honey, you and I, or so. That each mornin I wake, you’re the sun in my day. Each mornin I wake, you’re the sun in my day. Each mornin I wake, you’re the sun in my daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay So, honey, how was your first day? We haven’t even had a chance to talk, and I was really tired last night. Um Yeah, no, it went okay. I mean it’s a huge relief that all my classes are in the central building, so Well, yeah, that’s, that’s good. And since you are back in school, I’m returning this to you. What, so you can keep tabs on me?

I am giving you an opportunity to earn your trust back with me, young lady. And I hope and pray that you do.

You know, I didn’t start drinking coffee until I was about 19, 20. Really? Yeah. I was told that it stunts your growth. That’s so weird. I think it just gives me anxiety. Oh, great. Where is our waiter? Finn usually has the early shift and I haven’t seen her at all. You’re right. That is weird. You know what? Uh, I’ll be right back.
