Update written by Joseph

Paulina is in her office on the phone with Abe, talking about being free and clear of radiation. Paulina says she’ll see him tonight and hangs up. Chad then arrives and says he was passing through, so he thought he’d take a chance at meeting with her. Paulina says she has a few minutes and asks what she can do for him. Chad responds that he got a tip from someone and wanted to discuss it with her. Chad explains that this person claims that Paulina abused her power as Mayor and put the public health at risk. Paulina questions where he got this tip and who the hell told him that.

Everett works on his laptop at the Brady Pub. Everett thinks back to Marlena hypnotizing him. Marlena then arrives and greets him. Marlena offers to join him but Everett says he’s just finishing up an article, so he’s a little busy. Marlena says it won’t take long and sits down anyways. Marlena brings up Everett saying he did not want to continue hypnosis. Marlena asks if he’s changed his mind. Everett responds that he didn’t. Marlena questions why he lied to Stephanie then.

Stephanie walks through the town square and is disappointed to see the Bakery is closed. Chanel rushes up and apologizes for being late. Stephanie asks if everything is okay. Chanel explains that she slept through her alarm and was the only one scheduled to open. Stephanie says it’s okay as she’s here now. Johnny joins them and jokes that he drove like a bat out of Hell to get her there. Chanel tells Stephanie that she’ll give her a discount on whatever she wants. Stephanie says it’s fine as she was only there for two minutes and explains that she’s just picking up pastries for a potential client. Johnny asks about it not being for her. Stephanie notes that she already had breakfast as they had a little farewell gathering for Tripp and Wendy, but she had to leave early for a meeting. Stephanie notes that Tripp and Wendy are already two hours in to their flight now. Johnny questions where and what she’s talking about.

Julie joins Maggie in the living room of the Kiriakis Mansion. Maggie shows her roses from Konstantin. Julie announces that Kayla gave her the full clear from radiation, so no more isolation. Julie tells Maggie that she feels so guilty for not going to the cabin with Doug since she thought she’d be gone for only one night but it turned in to days and days. Julie notes that at this point in their lives, every moment together is precious. Maggie assures that they took good care of Doug so Julie thanks her. Maggie asks her about the isolation. Julie praises the guest house she arranged for her and how she spent the time trying to figure out how to open Tom’s time capsule but had no luck. Julie jokes that Tom and Alice must be laughing over it. Maggie then informs Julie that she has news for her and announces that she and Konstantin are getting married.

Konstantin rushes back to John and shows his card in his face to take control of John as the Pawn. Konstantin orders John to listen to every word he says because he has an extremely important mission for him. Konstantin informs him that he and Maggie are engaged, but there is one problem and John needs to solve it.

Stephanie thought Johnny knew that Tripp and Wendy have gone to spend time with Wendy’s family in Hong Kong. Johnny says he didn’t even know they were thinking about it and asks when they are coming back. Stephanie says she doesn’t know as it’s kind of open ended. Johnny can’t believe Wendy would leave without saying goodbye. Chanel comes back from opening the Bakery and tells Stephanie that she can have whatever she wants. Stephanie assures that she doesn’t mind paying but Chanel insists. Stephanie then heads to the Bakery. Chanel asks Johnny to set up a display table to give out cookies to the kids, but notes that Johnny is distracted and asks if everything is okay. Johnny claims he’s fine and asks what she needed.

Paulina asks if Chad got this tip from EJ because it’s almost exactly what he said yesterday. She asks if EJ asked Chad to publish a hit piece on her. Chad responds that he hasn’t spoke to EJ in quite some time. Paulina asks if he’s sure EJ didn’t e-mail or text him. Chad says he came to see her to get ahead of the gossip and find out what really happened at Smith Island. Paulina explains that there was a snow storm and her daughter went missing. Chad adds that Paulina left the hospital against doctor’s advice and illegally commandeered a snow plow to save her. Chad wants to get Paulina’s side of the story on the record if they can do that.

John questions Konstantin’s problem that he needs to solve. Konstantin explains that Maggie is marrying him in name only, which he can live with, but she also wants to keep him from getting what he came to Salem for; Victor’s fortune, and that he cannot live with. John asks what he needs him for.

Everett knows Stephanie is a huge fan of Marlena, so he didn’t want to make Marlena out to be a quack in front of her which Marlena questions. Everett knows that may sound harsh but talks about hypnosis being like a carnival act. Everett adds that he’s signed his divorce papers so the cord is cut from Jada and he’s ready to move on with his life. Marlena says she’s glad about that for him, but thinks he would still benefit from therapy. Marlena adds that if he doesn’t want to continue seeing her, he might want to find a different therapist. Everett thanks her for the recommendation but doesn’t think he will be continuing therapy with anyone as he’s ready to move on. Everett then takes his laptop and exits the Pub.

Paulina tells Chad that whoever he got this tip from, she guarantees it’s all been blown out of proportion. Chad questions that since the firefighters had to wear hazmat suits to protect themselves from the radiation. Paulina calls it an overreaction. Chad says he knows she was warned against being in close proximity with people before her numbers went down and she was brought back to the hospital in a hazmat suit. Paulina argues that her numbers were going down so the risk was minimal. Chad questions why she didn’t notify anyone that she was leaving the hospital then. Chad tells Paulina that he got quotes from the guy she stole the snow plow from and questions where she even learned to drive one. Paulina explains that she used to run a construction company in Miami and says it’s no different than driving a bulldozer. Chad guesses she doesn’t deny that it happened then.

Maggie explains to Julie that Konstantin has lost so much in his life and has told her how it’s been a tremendous comfort to him to stay in Salem. Maggie says for her, his presence is a comfort. Maggie adds that Konstantin can’t stay in the country unless he becomes a citizen by marriage, so she decided to make that happen for him. Julie calls it an example of Maggie’s enormous generosity. Maggie thanks her for understanding. Julie knows that she has thought it through and knows what she wants. Maggie calls it a positive thing to have Konstantin stay with his friendship and companionship. Julie hopes Maggie will protect herself going in to this marriage, financially. Maggie knew it was wise to have a prenup and notes that Konstantin signed it immediately with no resistance at all. Maggie adds that Konstantin knows if she dies before him, Victor’s entire fortune goes to his children. Julie calls Maggie very wise and says she supports her decision completely. Maggie thanks her again for understanding and for her friendship as they hug.

Konstantin explains to John that Maggie insisted that he sign a prenup and she locked it in the wall safe at the Kiriakis Mansion, so he needs him to break in to the safe and steal the prenup. Marlena knocks on the door and asks if everything is okay. Under Konstantin’s orders, John claims everything is just fine. Marlena questions why the door is locked.

Paulina tells Chad that she knows there are a few malcontents eager to slander her, mainly EJ because she called him out on his questionable behavior. Chad argues that this isn’t about EJ or anyone else trying to be vindictive and that no one is eager to slander her. Chad declares the fact is that Paulina left the hospital against medical advice and hijacked a snow plow so someone could’ve gotten seriously hurt, adding that Paulina didn’t have a license. Chad argues that there was no guarantee she would find Chanel, so she could’ve been seriously hurt or died trying to find her. Paulina points out that it didn’t turn out that way as Chanel is safe and she’s fine. Chad says they are all grateful but argues that she knows it was dangerous to be close to people while radioactive. Paulina complains that no parent in the world wouldn’t have done the same thing. Paulina asks if it was Chad’s children that were missing. Chad calls it not a fair question. Paulina says that’s because he knows very well he would do the exact same thing, regardless of whether or not he put others at risk. Paulina calls it a very minimal risk. Chad asks if she’s sure about that. Paulina declares that in the end, no one was affected by her being in close proximity as Chanel, Johnny, and Julie are all fine. Paulina tells Chad that it wants to write a fair article, he can ask Chanel if she would rather have froze to death in the snow.

Johnny tells Chanel that he will continue apartment hunting. Chanel mentions being exhausted if he wants to do some of the leg work on his own. Johnny agrees to do so but notes that it’s always awkward when landlords ask about his occupation. Chanel insists they only care that he can pay the rent and adds that the Bakery is doing good, so they are good. Johnny wonders if he should’ve given EJ’s offer more thought. Chanel argues that working for DiMera was never his dream. Johnny feels he needs some kind of job so Chanel encourages him to follow his dream which was always to make movies. Johnny says there’s no opportunities for that as he’d need to be in LA or New York and he’d never ask her to leave her mom or her bakery as their whole lives are here. Chanel asks if he’s sure about that. Johnny assures that he is.

Stephanie goes to the Spectator office where Everett is working. Stephanie stops and thinks back to confronting him at the Pub about how differently he acted towards her and Jada. Stephanie then greets Everett and asks if Chad is around as she had something to drop off for the kids. Everett tells her that Chad took off to do an interview while he’s struggling writing an article about May Day. Stephanie is glad that’s why he’s in a bad mood and not because he gave Jada the signed divorce papers. Everett assures it has nothing to do with that. Stephanie notes that Jada was relieved and assumes that he is too.

Konstantin shows the card in John’s face to turn off his control of The Pawn as Marlena calls out to him from behind the door. John then answers the door and claims he didn’t know the door was locked. Marlena sees Konstantin and asks if she’s interrupting something. Konstantin claims that he just came by to invite them to his wedding which Marlena questions. Konstantin realizes Maggie hasn’t told her and says it’s his fault. Konstantin asks Marlena to pretend to be surprised when Maggie tells her. Marlena can’t imagine Maggie would mind him telling them. Konstantin says he should get going and that he’ll be in touch as he then exits. Marlena asks John what Maggie is thinking and what Konstantin said. John struggles to remember and says he doesn’t know. Marlena questions how he can’t know when he was just there. John says he can’t remember exactly. Marlena asks if he talked about anything else. John says he doesn’t think he did. John states that he remembers them talking but he can’t remember what about. John realizes this isn’t the first time this has happened and complains that the exact same thing happened when he met Konstantin in the park. John wonders what the hell is going on with him which Marlena calls a very good question.

Everett tells Stephanie that she’s totally right and asks why he would have misgivings about divorcing Jada since he doesn’t even know her and wants nothing to do with her. Everett thinks he was only hesitant to sign the papers because he felt it was forgery to sign as Robert Stein, but thanks to her, he got over that reluctance. Stephanie is glad that he did for Jada’s sake and his own. Everett states that Stephanie really helped him realize that he needed to do that in order to put all of this behind him and that’s great. Chad then arrives and greets them. Stephanie tells him that she has something for the kids and that’s why she’s there. Chad calls that very sweet. Stephanie asks about his interview. Chad says he’s not sure it will pan out but it doesn’t look good. Stephanie mentions passing by the toy store so she got a teddy bear from Charlotte and action figures for Thomas. Chad assures they will love it. Chad says he’s going to get lunch before his next interview. Chad tells Stephanie that Thomas keeps asking when she will come over to play cards. They decide on this weekend so Chad says he’ll let her know. Chad tells Everett that he will reach out to him later and exits. Stephanie tells Everett that before Chad came in, he was talking about putting it all behind him and asks what exactly he means by that. Everett thinks it’s time to forget about Bobby Stein and move on with his life.

Paulina goes to the town square and sees Johnny and Chanel at the Bakery. Paulina thinks back to being at the cabin with Chanel, Johnny, and Julie. Paulina then joins Chanel and Johnny and hugs them. Johnny says she’s looking great. Paulina says she’s feeling great too but does have a favor to ask Johnny. Paulina informs them that the Spectator has been sniffing around her office and asking questions about her leaving the hospital for Smith Island. Paulina adds that she has no doubt that EJ is behind it. Paulina says she doesn’t want to put Johnny in an uncomfortable position, but she thinks EJ is out to get her and asks if there’s anything he can do to help.

Konstantin goes home and greets Julie with Maggie. Julie congratulates him on the engagement and says she’s very happy that he will get to stay in the country and she knows how much Maggie enjoys his company. Julie asks when the big day is. Maggie says they are still discussing that. Julie is sure they will let her know and goes to get breakfast for her and Doug. Konstantin feels that Julie is concerned about their marriage. Maggie informs him that she was actually very supportive of her decision. Konstantin claims all he wants is to be in Salem and close to her. Konstantin supposes they should tie the knot as soon as possible. Maggie assures that she won’t let the deadline pass and he won’t have to leave Salem.

Marlena suspects that when John is with Konstantin, a part of him shuts down as a way of trying to forget the memories of what he put him through. John questions that being why he can’t remember any of their conversation just now. Marlena thinks it’s one explanation, but not the only one.

Johnny asks Paulina about her disagreement with EJ last night. Paulina says that Chad showed up at her office this morning with all these questions and twisting around what actually happened. Paulina complains that it sounded almost exactly like what EJ said last night. Johnny and Chanel tell her they are sorry. Paulina repeats that she hates putting Johnny in the middle of all this, but asks if he could put in a good word for her with Chad. Johnny agrees to do that. Paulina thanks him and says to tell him how she saved Chanel and told everyone to stay away from her as she was trying to be as responsible as possible. Chanel suddenly feels sick and rushes off to throw up, leaving Paulina and Johnny concerned.

Chad goes to the Kiriakis Mansion and says he just came by to drop Stephanie’s gifts off for the kids and get them something to eat. Maggie mentions the cook making a marvelous pot pie. Chad asks Konstantin if he found the thing he was looking for since he was really shaken up about it. Konstantin confirms that he did and that it was symbolic of something complicated but it reminded him of his daughter. Chad is glad he found his card and heads to the kitchen.

Stephanie reminds Everett that he still doesn’t really understand what happened in his past and there are still so many unanswered questions about Bobby Stein and his marriage to Jada. Everett doesn’t want to talk about that anymore as he’s tired of diving in to the past, looking for answers that may not exist. Everett thinks it’s a waste of time. Stephanie questions how it can be a waste, arguing that he has to understand his past to be able to live fully now. Everett disagrees and says he feels fully capable of living his life now. Everett says you can’t live in the past and have got to be in the here and now. Everett knows his case is complicated, but he really feels like he’s turning a corner and argues that his past has nothing to do with his life now. Everett repeats that it’s a waste of time which Stephanie still questions. Everett then remarks that Marlena must agree and claims that she discharged him from therapy. Stephanie asks why he would be discharged from therapy when she thought he was making progress. Everett says he was and now he thinks he’s gotten everything he could possibly get out of his sessions with Marlena. Everett acknowledges that he might never get access to those memories and claims they agreed that the best use of their time would be for him to focus on the here and now, moving forward. Everett brings up that after his accident, the specialists told him that his memories might be permanently erased, so he’s just learned to live with that. Stephanie argues that he was making progress until he freaked out during hypnosis. Everett claims that Marlena said that’s pretty common and that she considered it a breakthrough of sorts. Everett insists that he’s excited to start making new memories, hopefully with Stephanie.

Chad asks Julie if there’s any news on when they can go home. Julie tells him that the contractor said everything is going beautifully. They agree it will be wonderful when they can go home. Chad wants to ask Julie about her experience at the cabin which she agrees to. Chad asks how Julie feels about Paulina exposing her to radiation. Julie understands completely her compulsion to find her missing daughter and she’s still very upset that everyone had to go in to days of isolation because of Paulina’s rash behavior. Julie thinks Paulina should be protecting her people instead of putting their lives at risk. Julie declares that because of Paulina exposing them to radiation, they all could have become very ill so she just thanks God that they didn’t.

Chanel comes back to Johnny and Paulina and says she’s not feeling well. Paulina asks if she can get her anything. Chanel says she called in another employee for the Bakery. Johnny notes that Chanel was tired yesterday and this morning. Johnny doesn’t want to scare her, but notes that Kayla said they should look out for symptoms of radiation poisoning like fatigue. Paulina begins to panic. Johnny thinks they should get Chanel to the hospital but Chanel wants to just rest and then they can see tomorrow morning. Paulina refuses to play around with this and insists on getting her checked. Johnny goes to get the car.

John tells Marlena that something isn’t right here and he doesn’t know what it is, but he’s glad she showed up when she did. John mentions feeling disoriented so Marlena decides they will get him home.

Konstantin looks at his card, saying it was not meant to be today but declares that he will get what he wants next time.
