So honey, how was your first day? We haven’t even had a chance to talk. I know, 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. Great. Where is our waiter at? 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.

There you are. You two took off early this morning. Yeah, we went for a walk. Do you have a minute? I need to talk to you. Okay. You know, I stopped by the Spectator yesterday for their photography job. Yeah? Yeah. Well, when I was walking out, I overheard Leo on the phone. He said, He left. I’ll give the guy every ring and endorsement.

Work every angle I can. So what? Well, he was obviously talking to you, Sloane. Me? Aaron, why would he be talking to me? No one knew why I went there or why. Except for you. So why don’t you tell me what’s going on between you and Leo?

No, no, this is not what I wanted at all. Did you spell that with a Y? Yeah, uh, not at all, buddy boy. Ah, the sound of agitation in the morning, like a modern day birdsong. What’s going on? It’s a press release about Bella closing. It’s not at all what I approved and I’m just annoyed, obviously as you, you can tell.

Did you read this? No, but I know what happened. Reliving it is just like putting salt in the wound. Oh. And yet still you didn’t have any qualms about running straight to Maggie once I told you the magazine was folding. Ah,

good morning. Good morning, Kristen. You’re off to an early start, you see. Indeed I am. First stop are the DiMera offices, then the DA’s office. Ah, such a bummer. And then what? Off the play pickleball with Mark Zuckerberg, perhaps? Mock me all you want, but the company won’t run itself. And once the board votes, I will be the permanent CEO.

Ooh, and an outstanding one at that, I’m sure. If the vote goes forward without a hitch, that is. Oh, I’m sure it will. And you’d be wise to prepare for that eventuality, Kristen. Oh, I am prepared. Oh, Well prepared.

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

Did you hear about the bistro opening in its doors again? Hmm, I saw it on social media. Ah, so you’ll be lunching there from now on, supporting our little brother. Wild horses couldn’t drag me to that dreary place. Oh, come on! Wouldn’t it be entertaining to actually watch Stefan work? I mean, he claimed he was working at the bistro before it shut down, but, uh, knowing him, he was just delegating, and now he is in charge all by himself.

I mean, can you imagine his face when he finds out he actually has to do stuff for hours? It would be like Putting a filet mignon in front of a vegan. And yet, you gave him a very sweet deal, D. A. Demare. I mean, you could have told him prison for years, making traffic signs and license plates. But you let him walk, and an outsider might have a few questions regarding that decision.

But as a member of the family To me, it is crystal clear. It is? Oh, well, do enlighten me. Oh, I will, I will. Uh, you’re playing the long game. It would have been in your best interest if you sent Stephan off to a white collar prison. Out of sight, out of mind, until a plural hearing came and, uh, what, in a decade or so?

Then he’d, uh, be as much as a threat to your grip on power as a housefly. But that didn’t happen. Therefore, you have something else on your mind. Well I’d love to continue to sit here and listen to your fan fiction, Kristen. I really would, but I am late for a breakfast date with Nicole. Oh, come on. I am right, am I not?

Trying to find where the bodies are buried, are you, Kristen? What bodies? Certainly not mine. We shall see about that.

Fine. I did. I called Leo. And yes, we spoke about you. Look, Leo, he kind of owes me. Owes you what? Fine. You know, for going above and beyond as his attorney. I called because I wanted him to put in a good word for you at The Spectator. I was trying to help you, Eric.

You’re my husband. You know, I want your photography business to take off. I want you to find joy in it the way I find joy in my work. Honey, look at us. You know, we can be the power couple. Beautiful, successful. The kind of people look at an inmate. The life that people say, God, I want what they have. Sloane, that’s not me.

You know that’s not who I am. I’m sorry. And I don’t think this is what this is all about at all.

Pump the brakes, mister. I did not run to Maggie’s. Oh, maybe you drove there. Oh, funny. Look, Maggie is my friend. And she’s also my sponsor. And I feel like I let her down. In fact, I let the whole Bella team down. You know, something with that sort of weight, it can have Adverse effects on one’s sobriety. It’s high stakes for me, Alex.

Why I, I, I had to do an act of self care and speak to my sponsor. Okay. Okay, I get it. You’re right. See? And all you had to do was ask and not accuse. You’re right, I’m sorry. I’m sorry. It’s just that after you told her, she came back to me and insisted that I gave her a job back at the company. Which I was completely unprepared for, and now I’m stuck with her.

You said yes? I mean, Theresa, there wasn’t much of an option for a no. She said if I didn’t accept her assistance, she was gonna take it to the board, which is the last thing I need. So in order to keep the board at bay, I’m bringing her back, but on my terms. Huh. Well played, Mr. Kiriakis. Yeah. You do have some good business instincts.

That’s why you’re still CEO. That I am. You know, Maggie is a badass too. And she’s a brilliant businesswoman. Honestly, this could be a really great thing for you, Alex. Because with Maggie working alongside you at the helm, you two could take Titan Industries, I don’t know, to the next level.

Mom, listen, I know I haven’t been the most trustworthy person lately, to put it mildly, but I promise you, I’m going to try to be better at it. Okay? Okay, honey, don’t just try. Do. Okay? Hey, Holly. Hey. Sophia, how you doing? I’m good. Better, now that my bestie’s back. So, you ready to go over Mrs. King’s spring physics worksheet?

Not really. Are we doing three dimensional motion again? Unfortunately. But, we can grab a couple lattes, because I think we’re gonna need them. Yeah, sure. Yeah. Okay. Love you, Mom. Love you, sweetheart. See you later. Okay, be good. Okay. Come home after school. Bye. So, you like it? Sugar and a splash of cream. What are you doing?

Well, Cook called in sick, so Uncle Roman’s back there taking over as Gordon Ramsay and he can’t be in the front of the back of the house, not on a morning like this. So, I’m gonna help him out. Okay, are you sure? You might be late for, uh, school. Yes, no, I’m not gonna be late for school, but you’re gonna be late to pick up Rachel, and I got a scone for her.

Oh, I’m fine. That was nice, okay. Alright, um, good luck. I got this. Alright.

Hi there. Fancy seeing you here, Tate. Nice apron. Oh, thank you. Yeah, I’m just helping out my Uncle Roman this morning. He’s a little short staffed. That is so sweet of you, to help out your family. Uh, thanks, I’m not hungry. You’re welcome. You should look at the specials. We have this, uh, French toast bacon thing.

I think you’d really like it. Oh, let me look.

You know what? I’ll have the pancakes and, uh, no, wait, scratch that. I’ll have the egg white omelette with avocado. And can you make a white hot cocoa with almond milk? Yeah, you got it. Thank you. See anything you like? I’ll just stick with coffee. Extra cream, please. Okay.

Everything okay? Yeah. I guess.

I don’t know, I just It really sucks that I can’t fix things at Bella. Hey, that is not your fault. No, I know it’s fine. It’s just I’m trying to do things now that are within my control. You know, like, make calls on behalf of the marketing team because they’re so talented and they’re so hardworking and I, I want to help as many people as possible to get their next gig.

Wow, look at you. Thinking of others during a time of crisis. Well, that’s what a leader does, right? Except I don’t really have much to lead right now. But you do. Right? I mean, maybe you could move some people around within the company, like, like you offered to do with me. Maybe, yeah, but that offer was meant for you.

And that offer still stands. Thank you, but I have to respectfully decline. I don’t know how I feel about corporate America anymore. I don’t think it’s for me. No? So what’s next? What is for Miss Teresa Donovan?

Eric, I don’t know what you’re thinking, but it’s It’s what I’m seeing. Look at this. Oh, what about it? What about it? We talked about this before. The numbers, they’re not adding up. What are you talking about, babe? Look, we already went through this, okay? I told you, we’re fine. No, no, Sloane, you manipulated the numbers to make them work.

You showed me this the other day. It was a trick. What do you mean? This. They’re not adding up. There’s a lot of money here that’s not accounted for. I think I’m starting to realize what is really going on.

Oh, there you are. I’m sorry. I’m late family stuff. Kristen, how’d you guess? Oh, it’s just the life force vacated your eyes. I suppose that would give it away. Yeah. Well, are you ready for some breakfast? Oh, I wish I could, but I can’t sweetheart. I need to get to the Demira office this morning. A couple of action items that need to be addressed.

Action items. Mm-Hmm. I’m assuming neither of them have to do with. No, no, not my concern at the moment. And I will not be attending the so called soft opening today either. Aw, since you’re not going to bed, can we at least schedule a lunch? I wish I could, but I’ve got depositions and case reviews as well today.

Geez, well maybe we could Pencil in a shoulder massage, honey. I’m, I’m worried about you running yourself ragged. Not just as DA, but moonlighting as a CEO of DiMera. There is nothing to worry about. I feel focused and determined. And I see a bright future ahead for the company. More value than ever for the shareholders and the people.

Peaceful citizens of Salem feeling safer because I’m their DA. I thrive on chaos, you know this. Yes, it’s kind of obvious. And I love you, Nicole, for being right by my side. I love you. I love you.

Dear Mr. Shin, I am writing to you. No, Kristen, nothing in writing.

Is Rachel ready? Oh, please, come on in. Kristen, where is Rachel? We’re going to be late for school. Rachel is gone. I’m sorry, I’m sorry, what are you talking about? No! She insisted on attending, uh, early start art class. And they have this avant garde doodling that she loves. And, uh, I just had one of the drivers take her.

You could have texted me. You could have called me, and I could have taken her. I’m sorry, I just, I got caught up in a tete a tete with EJ and I completely lost track of time. But you know what, now that you’re here, we could have breakfast. We should chat.

We could have cook whip us up an omelette and some Kristen, I’m not interested in breakfast. I was interested in taking my little girl to school, but obviously that’s not gonna happen. So I’ll pick her up, okay? I’m sorry, that’s not going to happen either. She has to stay late for her tutoring. Then I will pick her up after tutoring.

Are little girls being tutored and you didn’t tell me about it? Well, I was going to tell you at some point. I suppose now is as good as any. Okay, listen, Brady. Rachel is um, She’s having trouble in math. I mean, there are three kinds of people in this world, right? Those who are good at math and those who aren’t.

Rachel is, is seeing a tutor and you didn’t tell me. I’m telling you right now. Tell me right now. I’m gonna go. Well, when I told Alex about Rachel having a tutor, I mean, all he asked me was where I found the tutor and uh, is Rachel cool with it? What are you trying to say? What I’m trying to say is that Alex is very supportive and he’s interested.

Maybe it’s because he’s crazy about Rachel and they’re like two peas in a pod. Yeah. I don’t think so, Kristen. I don’t think our daughter gives a damn about Alex, and I’m pretty sure Alex feels the same way about her. I mean, I can understand how threatened you are to that, but it is true, Brady. Well, I’ll just have to talk to Rachel about what the truth is when I speak to her tonight.

And then we’ll find out if she and Alex are like two peas in a pod.

What does Theresa want to be when she grows up? Well I’m really good with fashion. I’m really into it. Especially that whole, like, Y2K look that’s so in vogue right now. And, you know, I’m a really big foodie. So, I don’t know. Maybe I could, um, Maybe I could start a vlog. Call it T for Teresa. Or something like that.

And then I can hire my own interns and make my own schedule. I mean, it sounds great.

Gosh, I wonder how much of Maggie you’re going to see now that she’s engaged to Constantine. What? Huh? What did you say? Um, oh, I thought you knew that. I literally just found out when I went to go see Maggie. Honestly, I, please don’t say anything. I was told in confidence. Okay, yeah, fine. I won’t say anything.

But what the hell is Maggie thinking? Ugh.

Oh, AJ, I have to admit, I’m a little embarrassed. What? Why? Cause you have two jobs and I don’t even have one. Sweetheart, you don’t need to worry about that. Not anymore. You’re in the mirror. So what? I still have an ego and I’ve always worked and supported myself. That’s who I am. And I respect that. I do.

You’re ambitious and obviously talented in so many ways. I feel like there’s a but coming. Well, there is. I mean, darling, for you to go back to work right now, I just don’t think that’s a good idea.

He is such a snack, is he not? My god, I wish he was on the menu. Uh, what answer did you get for question five? How can you study right now when the yummiest guy in Salem is like orbiting our table? Because my mom’s literally gonna kill me if I don’t pull all A’s across the board. Yeah, fair point. Um, tengo que ir al baño go?

Perdóname, por favor.

So Did you tell her about us? No, and it’s literally killing me not to. We tell each other everything. But she also tells her mom everything too, so Okay, right. Well, that’s probably smart then. I got myself one of those cheap pay as you go phones, so we can interface without the parental units finding out.

How romantic.

I should, I should get back to work. I don’t want my Uncle Roman reporting on me to Mom and Dad. Tate, I’m really happy to see you. Same.

Honestly, babe, I think you’re way off base here. Sloane, I’ve counseled many couples. And learned that money issues stem from all sorts of addictions. Drugs, alcohol, shopping. Shopping? Yes. Really? Yes, really. That is, unless you Unless what? Unless you have some sort of gambling addiction. Oh my God, do you even hear yourself right now?

All I’m saying is, if you have a problem, just please, tell me what it is. We can get through this together. Eric, I Okay, then what is it? So please just tell me what’s going on.

I’m your husband. I’m here for you. And I’m pleading for you to tell me the truth. You want

the truth? Yes. The truth is, is that you pretend like you want to work. But actually, you just want to stay at home all day with the baby. What? Yeah. What are you talking about? You know, you are projecting your anxieties of finances onto me. And that’s okay. I’m a big girl. I can take it. That’s not even what this is about.

Well, then what is it about? No, you know what, Eric? It is. Sure it is. And it’s okay. I can pay the bills. I can pay the rent, the car, the utilities. You got student loans? What? Throw them on me too. I can handle it. No, don’t. Don’t what? Don’t make yourself out to be a martyr.

I’m gonna be the adult here and take Jude for a walk before I say something that is half as hurtful as what you just did.

And Rachel will probably say that he is tall and funny and he does a great impression of Bugs Bunny. And then she will call him mad dope. And if you don’t know what that means, it’s totally amazing.

Yeah, I’m totally not buying it. Yeah, whatever you’re up to, I don’t know what it is, but believe me, I’m It ain’t gonna work. This makeup is a great shot to you, Brady, but it’s not all about you. And as much as I would love to just sit and chat some more about my private life, I’ve got a lot of things to do.

Let yourself out.

Maggie is the smartest woman I know, but I think that she’s thinking with her heart. If I was always thinking with my heart, I’d probably be flipping cocktails at a tiki bar in Bali. Oh God, I don’t even want to think about where I would be. Look, forgive me for doing a little psychology 101 here, but I, I think that, Through Constantine, maybe she’s trying to hold on to that connection to Victor.

Uh, yeah, I don’t know. I mean, maybe, regardless. Constantine? I mean, the guy just rubs me the wrong way, you know, the idea of this sleazeball getting his hands on my father’s money. Yeah, that’s not gonna happen. It’s, it’s, he’s too respectful to do that to him. Please, please, Theresa, really? This guy, he just, he gives off this like, Uriah Heep vibe.

Just swarmy and greedy. And once Victor’s will goes through probate, the money’s gonna be accessible. I don’t know what the hell Maggie’s thinking. Like, marrying a con man.

You know what I just saw? A poster for prom. Do you think Tate will go? I have no idea. I wish I was brave enough to ask him. You’re like Totally over him after everything that happened, right? To be honest, I, like, was never really into him in the first place. Cool. Cool. Just checking. So, are you going? Uh, I don’t know.

Well, I’m guessing your mom might shut that down, right? Uh, I hope not. I mean, she did just give me my phone back this morning. So, kinda seems like she’s starting to trust me more. But, like Also, it’s prom, which is like a pretty big deal, right? And wouldn’t it be cool if we could double date? I mean, obviously we’ll take tons of pics of your house and get a limo.

Yeah, no, that all sounds great. Um, but if we don’t get moving, we’re gonna be late to school. Right.

Earth is working, not a good idea. Okay, okay, I misspoke. Bye bye. I meant to say that where you work might be the issue. Since I’m CEO of Demira, you can’t exactly go back to your post at Basic Black. They’re a direct competitor. Well, I wasn’t planning on going back there. Hell, I don’t even know what I want to do, EJ.

All I know is that my life has shifted yet again, and I find myself with too much time on my hands that I don’t know what to do with. And I need something more fulfilling than meddling in teenage love and planning charity teas. Of course you do. Of course you do. And I’m sure wherever you choose to work, you will be a great asset.

In fact, you know, I could use your talents back at the Mirror. It’s not really my vibe right now. Fair enough. So what exactly is your vibe? Well, I do have some ideas.

It’ll be so much fun. Okay, okay, okay. Just think about it. You go shopping, try on a ton of cute prom dresses. Oh, you know what I was thinking? Why don’t we start a dance and trend it? We can call it the Cupid Shuffle. There’s already a dance called the Cupid Shuffle. Really? Yes, really. Oh, damn. Okay, look, I’ll talk to my mom, see what she says.

But I can’t make any promises, cause she does keep me on a pretty tight leash these days. Holly! Wait!

Junk, junk, recycle. Catalog, catalog. Junk, junk, and

Oh, Brady. Hey, Nicole. I was just here to pick up Rachel to take her to school. But Kristen, she made sure that didn’t happen. I’m sorry. It’s fine. How was,

how was Holly’s first day back at school? Um, fine. Well, at least that’s all she told me. Fine. Teenagers and their often limited vocabulary. How about Tate? Same. He said, Fine. Fine, Dad. It’s fine. Yeah, that’s pretty much what he said. Uh, yeah. Well, you know what? You know, we can just put that in the win category.

They’re progressing. Both of them. Yes. Absolutely. Brady, you know how much I’ve always loved Tate. Just as much as I know you’ve always loved Holly. And I know that we agreed that they can’t be friends for a while. I know. Um, maybe ever. Yeah. But I really hope that we can be friends again. One day. How about now?

You know what? How about always? Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa,

whoa, whoa. You are getting way too caught up in all these things that are never gonna happen. They’re probably never gonna happen. Probably isn’t good enough, Theresa. You know, I read a business book just recently. You know what the first chapter of it was called? Always anticipate, always plan. Okay, cool.

I’d love to hear all about the sage advice in this book. But first, can you do something for me? Will you just turn around? Come on, turn around. Okay, what? Oh. God. Gosh. Oh my goodness. You are so tense. Oh my god. Right, right there, please. Oh my god. Mr. Kyriakos. You really, really, you need to relax. See? All better.

Now go to the gym now. Okay, um.

You’re really good at that massage thing, by the way. I’m gonna go take a shower.

I know, Jude. You don’t like it when Mommy and Daddy fight. Sometimes, grown ups have disagreements. And this time, it’s because Someone doesn’t know what’s in his own best interest.

Oh, hello Sloane. A. J.? Well, this was fun. Can I ask you something? Make it quick. Why did you give Stefan such an incredibly generous deal, only to sabotage it with the judge? My family situation is none of your concern. It’d serve you best to remember that.

Little does he know, Jude. Little does he know. Brady, I am so glad that you still want to be friends. And after all the, the torment that Holly has put you and your family through, that is very generous of you. Holly’s a kid. I know she didn’t have malicious intent, Nicole. She made a mistake. Yeah, but I should have been more attentive to her.

I was just so consumed with grief after losing my son. Don’t, don’t, don’t go there. Don’t go there. Look, like I said, kids make mistakes. Hey, we’ve made our fair share of mistakes, so, you know. And they’re kids kids will make mistakes, and they’re kids kids will make mistakes. It’s part of life. Yeah. Nick.

It’ll be okay. I promise. Oh, I hope so, Brady. I truly hope so. Uh, you forgot your notebook. Oh my god, Tate. Thank you. Yeah. Um, can’t believe I left this at the pub. So lame, right? Look at you. All out of breath. You really sprinted after us, huh? Yeah, I just, uh
