Recap written by Michele and Cheryl

Eric told Leo that he knew he was blackmailing Sloan over Jude. He asked Leo if he knew where Sloan was. Leo said he didn’t know where she was. When Eric continued to ask him about Sloan, Leo said he tried to do the right thing. Eric grabbed him and told him he would deal with him now that Sloan and the money are gone. Melinda told Sloan to stop calling her. She told Sloan that Rafe kept asking her questions, but he didn’t know anything. When Rafe came in her office, Melinda hung up the phone. Rafe told her he didn’t believe she didn’t know about Jude’s kidnapping when she helped Sloan with the adoption. Melinda said Sloan kept her out of the loop before everything was finalized. She asked what she would gain from helping Sloan steal a DiMera baby. When Rafe didn’t get the answers he wanted, he left. Melinda was relieved. EJ told Jude his paternity would be their little secret. Nicole walked in the room. EJ suggested they change the baby’s name since Sloan was the one who named him. Nicole hesitated before agreeing to do it. When EJ took the baby for a walk, Sloan came in the house to face Nicole. Stephanie went to see Marlena in her office. She told Marlena that she felt overwhelmed by Everett’s intervention. Marlena said she would be there if she or Jada needed anything.

Everett woke up from a dream of Stephanie walking in on him and Jada in the shower together. Jada and Stephanie showed up at Everett’s room. They told him that Marlena thought he had DID because of the abuse he suffered when he was young. Everett got upset at the accusation. Stephanie said she knew the situation was scary, but he shouldn’t keep his past buried. He told her to shut up. Bobby said Everett didn’t need to hear that. He said he was going to make sure of it. While EJ was out with Jude, he ran into Marlena. It was hard for Marlena to see the baby. EJ apologized to her. She said they were all victims. Marlena said she believed he and Nicole would be great parents to Jude. EJ thanked her. Sloan told Nicole that she needed to hear something. Nicole said she was going to call Rafe. Sloan told her she didn’t plan to kidnap Jude. She said Dimitri showed up with him as she hit rock bottom. Sloan said it felt like fate. Nicole said she would show her fate. She punched Sloan. Nicole ripped into Sloan because of what she put her through. Sloan reminded her that she did the same thing to Sami. She wanted Nicole to give her the same grace she was given. Nicole told her she would never do that. Leo tried to defend himself to Eric, but he grabbed him again. When Leo called out for help, Rafe showed up. Eric told him to get out of his sight. Leo walked away. Eric told Rafe that Leo wasn’t any help in finding Sloan. Rafe said they would find her. Eric said finding her wouldn’t make him a father. Rafe said bringing her in would help. He told Eric about his conversation with Melinda. Rafe told him Melinda said she wasn’t there for the adoption. Eric said Melinda handed them Jude at the door. Bobby called Jada his wife. He said they were good together. Jada told him he cheated on her. Bobby told Stephanie that the spoiled princess thing wasn’t his style. He said what he and Jada had was special and real. Jada asked if he was real. While they were talking, Bobby told them to get out. When he opened the door, Marlena was there. She said she wanted to help, but Bobby said he would make sure Everett was okay. He said there were things from Everett’s past that he didn’t need to know. Stephanie tried to reach out to Everett, but Bobby told him not to listen to her. He fell to the floor. Marlena checked on him. Bobby said they would never see Everett again. Marlena said his blood pressure was elevated and told him to get help. He agreed to get help. Leo went to Melinda’s office to get protection. She said she got Rafe off her back and could lead him down another path. Melinda said Sloan was the only person who could prove he was blackmailing her. Rafe showed up to arrest Melinda. Nicole pulled out her phone to call the police. When Sloan went to the door to leave, Eric was there.

Recap written by Michele and Cheryl

Theresa saw Stefan at the Bistro. She happily let him know that she was moving into the Kiriakis mansion with Alex. There’s a shot of Alex and in bed with Kristen. Alex got a call and he assumed it was from Maggie wondering where he was. Kristen informed him that EJ is waiting to find a chink in the Titan armor. Alex wasn’t worried. His phone went off again and he realized he was late for an appointment. He got out of bed. Harris let Ava know that the ISA cracked the code in Clyde’s book. The ISA was tracking the dealers they uncovered. There were local dealers involved. Harris was confident they would find Clyde. Ava wanted to go with him, but Harris refused to let her go.

EJ was with Jude and he introduced him to Alex and Kristen. Alex rushed off. EJ told Kristen about Sloan kidnapping Jude. She didn’t believe Sloan kidnapped Jude alone. EJ just told her what he knew about it. He wanted to use his resources to track her down. Kristen reminded him that his sources didn’t find Clyde. She wondered if he was losing his magic touch. He didn’t want to hear that from her. Ava told Lucas that Harris wanted them to stake out the post office to watch Goldman. They wore disguises while they waited for Goldman. Ava wore a big hat and glasses while Lucas dressed as a monk. He didn’t think he blended in. Ava thought people would talk to a monk before they talk to a cowboy. She wanted him to look out for Goldman while she went around the post office. Lucas bumped into Goldman. Harris saw a man named Snake and showed his badge. Snake ran off. Ava came out of the post office and saw Lucas with Goldman. He sprayed Goldman with bear spray. They took Goldman away.

[ Upbeat music ]

Hope: Are you sure I didn’t scare donna off?

Brooke: You didn’t, honey. You heard her. She wanted to check on eric and make sure he was doing okay in his workout.

Katie: Well, that was her excuse. I have to admit all this talk of war with steffy feels a little intense.

Hope: Well, that’s exactly how it should feel. But steffy is about to find out that I am not going put up with her antics any longer.

Brooke: I just can’t believe that she would do this. Threaten to kill hope for the future.

Hope: Well, it’s not going to happen. I won’t let steffy do it.

Steffy: You seem shocked, but I’m serious, carter. I think it’s time we permanently end hope for the future.

Ridge: What’s this?

Steffy: We were just talking about the hope for the future numbers.

Ridge: No, I heard you. And you’re suggesting what? We get rid of hope’s line?

Bill: We don’t know for sure. Haven’t done the testing yet.

Liam: But, whoa. But she– she’s admitting this. Like, after all this time getting reacquainted with you, she’s only now telling you you could be her daughter’s father?

Bill: Better late than never.

Luna: Bill spencer could be my father?

Poppy: It’s possible. It’s highly possible.

Luna: I– what, I– I don’t understand. When I brought it up earlier, you–

Poppy: I wasn’t ready to face it yet, sweetie. I mean telling you. And telling him. I just wasn’t sure.

Luna: So, now you’re saying that I might’ve already met my father? And it’s bill spencer?

Poppy: Yes, honey. Yes.

Liam: I mean, you seem pretty psyched.

Bill: I am.

Liam: Just– okay. Is there any– any part of you that’s, I don’t know, upset with poppy? I mean, she’s been back in your life for a while now. You’d think it would’ve come up already, right?

Bill: She was afraid to tell me, liam.

Liam: Okay, but why?

Bill: Come on, you know as well as I do how many opportunistic gold diggers wanna tag me as their baby daddy? She didn’t want me to see her that way.

Liam: I mean, yeah, all right, fair. I get that. It– it’s just– there’s nothing wrong with tagging you if it’s true. And besides, luna’s an adult, right? It’s not like she’s coming at you for child support.

Bill: No, but– but there was something else. Another reason that poppy was afraid. Getting hurt. She’s in love with me, liam.

Poppy: I wish I knew how to explain.

Luna: I can’t understand. What, that you’re just telling me this now after all these years? That bill spencer could be my father?

Rj: Wait, what? Bill, actually?

Poppy: Uh, yes. He could be luna’s dad.

Luna: Can you believe it, rj? I might get to finally know my father.

Ridge: So you’re suggesting we cut a line that’s been a staple here for years?

Steffy: Well, forrester is couture, first and foremost. And I think we need to set aside our feelings and just focus on what’s best for the company.

Ridge: Oh, all right, so this is just business. There’s nothing personal about any of this stuff.

Hope: Steffy is trying to destroy every part of my life. I mean, she couldn’t be satisfied with just destroying my relationship to thomas. Sending my son out of the country. No, now she has to go after my job.

Brooke: Not just your job. Hope for the future. And that’s been your passion for years.

Katie: Right, and the message behind it.

Hope: But steffy doesn’t care about the message. Don’t you see? She doesn’t care about what good it does in the world. All she cares about is about sticking it to me and to our family. Because believe me, it is not just about the line. It’s about her versus the logan’S. And I am tired of her continually attacking us. And I’m not going to stand for it any longer.

Bill: Poppy said that she never truly loved a man before. Till me.

Liam: Well, that’s, uh, that’s intense.

Bill: Yeah, very. And it explains her fear of getting hurt.

Liam: Yeah, I mean, I guess if she told you about luna and you rejected her, it’s like you’re rejecting poppy and her daughter.

Bill: But liam, you’ve got to understand, it’s always just been poppy and luna. You know, they have an extraordinarily tight bond. And it’s taken poppy a long time to come to terms with sharing her daughter with anyone else.

Liam: But you- you’ve, I mean, you’ve thought about this and you’re ready and willing if it does turn out.

Bill: Absolutely. Yeah, I– I told poppy that if I’m luna’s dad, I am going to make a place for both of them in my life.

Liam: Wow. Well, wait a second. Does luna know about any of this?

Bill: As a matter of fact, poppy’s talking to her about it right now. And I hope she’s as excited as I am.

Rj: You’ve been wanting to know who your father is forever. I’m so happy for you. Even if it is bill.

Luna: Okay, okay, well, we don’t know for sure yet, but I’m dying to know if it’s true.

Poppy: Well, let’s go to bill now and put this in motion. He’s expecting us. I told him that I wanted to break the news to you first.

Luna: Yeah, yeah, let’s do it.

Poppy: Okay.

Luna: Wish me luck.

Rj: Yeah, good luck.

Steffy: I don’t know what you’re suggesting. Okay, look, is hope my favorite person? Absolutely not. But if her line were bringing in the numbers like it used to be, then I would be telling carter to fund the hell out of it.

Carter: Ridge, your daughter’s proven herself. She’s a smart businesswoman. There’s a reason why she’s co-ceo of this company.

Ridge: And there’s a reason why you do what you do. You agree with this?

Carter: I don’t disagree.

Steffy: I wouldn’t think of cutting the line if it was as successful as it used to be. But it isn’T. And now that thomas is gone, I don’t think it ever will be again.

Hope: If he wants to go to battle with the logan’s, fine. Let her. She won’t win.

Brooke: Honey, do you really think that’s what this is about?

Hope: I mean, mom, she’s practically despised our family for, I don’t know, most of her life. It’s like stephanie passed it down to her with her name.

Katie: Hope isn’t wrong about that.

Brooke: Okay, so what do we do? How do we stop her?

Hope: Well, for starters, I don’t think we should be having this conversation here. I think we should be at forrester creations, in the trenches, not sitting on the sidelines and just letting steffy steamroll us all.

Katie: Well, she is ceo. She has authority.

Hope: Co-ceo. With ridge. Which… why am I even saying that? We don’t even need ridge. Mom, you have clout there. Everything you have done for that company, no really, you’ve taken a backseat there for far too long.

Katie: Hope could be right. Your contributions to forrester are legendary. They continue to pay huge dividends and to this day, and we were just talking to your mother about becoming more involved in the company. I mean, you used to have such a place of prominence.

Hope: Well, maybe it’s time. Maybe it’s time to reclaim your place at forrester creations. Reclaim your power. Katie and I will support you. And who knows? Maybe with us together working as a team, steffy won’t stand a chance. All of the things thatyou’re looking for in a pad, that is always discreet. Look at how it absorbs all the liquid. Oh my gosh! And locking it right on in. Look at that! Totally absorbed. I got to get some always discreet.

Katie: Oh, hey, rj.

Rj: Hey.

Katie: Nice to see a friendly face.

Rj: Hmm?

Katie: Oh, nothing, just sometimes it feels like there are teams around here. Uh, my sister and hope are looking for steffy. Do you know where she is?

Rj: Uh, steffy, um, yeah, she’s, uh, she’s across the hall.

Katie: Are you okay? Seems like your mind is elsewhere.

Rj: Yeah, you could say that.

Katie: Rj? What’s up?

Rj: I just– I walked in on luna and poppy earlier. You know who poppy is, it’s luna’s mom?

Katie: Yeah, we’ve met.

Rj: Right. Well, she had some huge news for luna. She’s been keeping it a secret, who luna’s father is.

Katie: Okay.

Rj: Well, the secret’s out. Um, turns out her father might be bill.

Katie: What?

Poppy: Bill?

Bill: Hi.

Luna: Hey.

Bill: So it looks like your mom gave you the news.

Luna: Yeah, she did.

Bill: I imagine you’re in a bit of shock right now. I know I am. I mean, this is so crazy, right? We were just talking about this not that long ago.

Luna: Yeah, and we both thought it was impossible, but now…

Bill: But now, it could be true. I might be your dad. How do you feel about that, luna?

Ridge: Steffy, I don’t ever wanna question your instincts as the ceo of this company. I love what you do. You’ve grown into this businesswoman, this– this person that can deal with the corporate world, and– and you’re good at it. You love it. I don’T. I– I just wanna get back to designing, that’s it.

Carter: Ridge, what are you saying?

Steffy: Are you thinking about stepping down?

Brooke: Oh, good. Just the people I wanna talk to.

Steffy: Ah, we’re in the middle of a very important meeting.

Brooke: Have you heard what your daughter’s up to? She wants to cancel hope for the future.

Ridge: We were just talking about that, yeah.

Brooke: A line that has a proven track record, has been very profitable for this company.

Steffy: Well, that was then. We’re talking about now.

Ridge: And we’ll see what tomorrow brings.

Hope: Well, I’m not going to let steffy kill hope for the future. Not without a fight. Missing out on the things you love because of asthma? Get back to better breathing with fasenra, an add-on treatment for eosinophilic asthma that is taken once every 8 weeks. Fasenra is not for sudden breathing problems or other eosinophilic conditions. Allergic reactions may occur. Don’t stop your asthma treatments without talking with your doctor. Tell your doctor if your asthma worsens. Headache and sore throat may occur. Tell your doctor if you have a parasitic infection. Step back out there with fasenra. Ask your doctor if it’s right for you. Want the power of 5 serum benefits in 1? Olay super serum activates on skin to hydrate, smooth, visibly firm, brighten, and improve texture. It’s my best skin yet. Olay my name is juanita segura, and I was diagnosed in november of 2014 with non-small cell lung cancer. Through just doing online activity, I found out about biomarker testing.

[Juanita segura] My fear was I wasn’t going to be here to see my children grow up. That gave me hope, knowing that I have that chance. Ask your doctor how comprehensive biomarker testing before treatment treatment may help you decide on the best treatment for you. Visit noonemissed dot org for more.

Steffy: Hope, I appreciate your passion for the line. It’s part of what made it so popular.

Brooke: So you admit, hope for the future is successful.

Steffy: Was successful. Fashion evolves, and so do we.

Brooke: Steffy, this has nothing to do with the company. This is about you and your vendetta against my daughter.

Steffy: Okay, I don’t know what hope told you, but this is not a personal attack.

Hope: Are you really going to stand there and say that with a straight face?

Steffy: It’s a business decision. Carter, tell her. Tell her about the numbers.

Carter: It’s true.

Hope: Well, in this moment, yes. The line is in a period of transition, and we all know why. Steffy got into thomas’ head and urged him to move out of the country.

Steffy: Okay, that’s not what happened. And honestly, if you believe you only need one designer for hope for the future and he’s not there–

Hope: Hope for the future has a strong, creative design team with or without thomas. And I am certain that we will bounce back.

Brooke: Yes, you will. I believe in you, honey. And your line. Ridge, it’s your turn to chime in here as co-ceo. Steffy says this isn’t personal, but we all know better. She is determined to take every bit of happiness from hope. Her relationship with thomas, her son, and now her line? Come on, this is ridiculous. This is going a little bit too far, don’t you think?

Steffy: Dad, please do not listen to brooke. She is being an overprotective mom, and she only cares about hope’s wants and needs. That’s not how it works around here. I think we need to talk about this. Hope for the future needs to come to an end. Today.

Rj: Listen, listen, I get it’s a shock for you for so many reasons, but it does kind of add up.

Katie: Oh yeah, oh yeah, it does, absolutely. I mean, poppy runs across this extremely rich guy that she hooked up with years ago, and suddenly he’s the father of her child.

Rj: Aunt katie, come on, you’re not saying…

Katie: Why hasn’t she come forward sooner?

Rj: I don’t know. She’s proud of being able to raise luna on her own and not needing the father’s help.

Katie: Well, I hope he’s at least smart enough to get confirmation.

Rj: Aunt katie though, if this is true, and bill is luna’s father, then your son just gained a sister.

Bill: If you have mixed feelings, I totally get that. I mean, I wouldn’t expect you to embrace the idea right away. But if I am lucky enough to be your dad, that would make me incredibly happy.

Luna: Um, I’ve wanted to know who my father is for a really long time, and it’s always been like this question mark hanging over my head for like all my life. And now for the first time, my mom’s given me a name, and it’s not just any name or any man. It’s– it’s a man that I can tell my mom loves, and a man that’s been nothing but good and kind to me.

Bill: I will continue to be that person no matter what we find out. That is my promise to you. But if it’s true, and I am lucky enough to be your dad, I promise you I will step up in every way. And I will be the best dad to you that I could possibly be.

Poppy: Well, we can find out right away. I picked this up on my way to see luna. Unless you’d rather wait and– and test at the hospital?

Bill: No, no, no, no. It makes some kind of public spectacle out of this. That’s the last thing I want. These tests are very reliable, and honestly, I don’t wanna wait any longer. Uh… luna, you deserve to know. Is that what you want?

Luna: Yes, definitely. The sooner the better. I wanna know. I– I’m praying that this test proves you’re my father.

Steffy: Here’s a look at what’s ahead…

Luna: Okay, let’s do it.

Li: Hold it right there.

Hope: The disrespect that you have continued to show my family is ridiculous.

Ridge: So, what do you say?

Steffy: Here’s a look

Steffy: Here’s a look at what’s ahead…

Luna: Okay, let’s do it.

Li: Hold it right there.

Some Salemites ready to go nuclear on radioactive mayor? Lame play on words. Cliched, hackneyed, ugh. No offense, Everett, but the quality of the writing for The Spectator has really gone downhill the last couple of months. That is about to change, starting today. Lady Whistleblower will see to that. Gird your loins, Salem.

I think you better gird yours instead, Stark.

Sloane, you have got to stop calling. No contact, get it? Burner phone or no burner phone? Yeah, Wraith came by yesterday asking questions. But thank God for both of us, that poor sap is as clueless as ever. I gotta go. Yeah, just file a motion and tell the judge you can complain to me if he doesn’t like it. I had forgotten what of a crybaby my ADAs can be.

Well, not everyone can be you. Ah, right? Heavy lies the crown. Yep. Sorry to interrupt. Oh, no, don’t be silly. I was just telling that ADA how much I’m looking forward to working with you again. Oh, I’ll bet you were. So, uh, what can I do for you? Well, uh, just following up from yesterday. Still have some questions about how Sloane Peterson ended up with Nicole DiMera’s baby.

I’m so sorry you had to endure all that, little one. Stefan and Kristen can’t go on and on like a couple of prized idiots, can’t they? But, we mustn’t let them ruin a beautiful day, so how about we go for a walk and talk about your new name? Yay! Something befitting the family you now proudly represent.

Because biology be damned. I’m your daddy now, not Eric Brady. And your mommy will never know otherwise. It’ll be our little secret.

What secret?

We will all get through it, Roman. I’m just, mostly I’m worried about Eric. Yeah, no, I don’t think, uh, Judah will be traumatized. He’s, he’s so young still.

Well, look, if you, if you need anything, just please call me, okay? Thanks, you too.

Come in. Oh, Stephanie, hi. Come on in. Sorry to interrupt, Dr. Evans. Do you have a minute? I do. Come sit.

Jada and I touched base about staging the intervention you’d suggested. I, um, I just wanted to check in before going to see Everett. I’m so glad you both agreed to it. So am I. We’re both on board. Anxious to start. We’re on board. Split personality. It’s so crazy. You know that when you talk to Everett, that’s a word you don’t want to use.

Right. Of course, I know that. Uh, I just, I’m a bit, I’m a bit overwhelmed. That’s understandable. But as you’ve said before, it’s important to get Everett the help that he needs. And the good news is, Jade is on her way over.


Are you here? The front desk said you were

Good morning.

Something wrong?

Oh, I had the most terrible dream last night. The dream that I lost you. Lost me? That can never happen. You are my wife. You are Mrs. Bobby Stein. Now and forever.

Like sand through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives. Oh my god, I am so

relieved. I thought we were over. Must have been some dream. It was. I dreamed that you had a split personality. Oh, is that right? So, which one of me was sexier? I’m serious. You kept calling yourself Everett and all this crazy stuff happened and it went on for months and months and it made absolutely no sense.

You know, I don’t even think I could explain it if I try. You don’t have to. You don’t have to. The dream is over. I’m here. Flesh and blood. A Bobby you love. And it goes without saying, there is no Everett. Everett? What the hell is going on here?

Look, it’s quite normal to feel Reluctant. Uncomfortable, if you’ve never been part of an intervention before. I admit, I am anxious. Yeah. And with Everett being so resistant, um, well, it’s going to take everything we have to help him go through this. Now, I know that, uh, I’ve told you I won’t be there as part of this.

I just think it’s much more important to, to have Him involved with people that he’s had a longstanding relationship with. Right. That makes sense. I’ll be close by. And if anything goes wrong, if you need me for anything, I can be there immediately. Sounds good. Thank you. Um, I also wanted to say, I’m so sorry.

Uncle Roman told me about what happened with Jude. Here. How is Eric doing? Never mind. Stupid question. I, I can’t imagine how heartbroken he must be. How much he must be missing that sweet little guy.

Oh, don’t mind us. We were having a father son chat. Oh, about? About what our son’s new name should be. What do you mean? You want to change his name? Eric and Sloan chose the name. Don’t you want to reserve that pleasure for ourselves? We are his parents, after all. I know. I mean, I kind of like Jude. Well, he’s used to it, anyway.

Okay. Nicole, he’s a baby. He’ll get used to his new name very quickly, I assure you. All right, I’ll sure add him in. You are his daddy. I am indeed. Now, our son and I were about to leave and go for a walk. I am determined to put my unexpected free time to good use bonding with my son here. And, I might be persuaded to pick up some delectables on the way back.

Any requests? That is so thoughtful. Um, surprise me. My favorite thing to do. Alright little man, let’s go. Choo, choo, choo. Say goodbye to mommy.

Have fun, you know? All right, let’s go.

Hello, Nicole.

Cheer, are you okay? Uh, yeah, definitely. I just, I had this weird dream that I’m trying to remember. You know how that can throw you off? Sorry, what are you doing here? I was hoping that we could talk. Okay, uh, hold that thought.

Hi, everyone. Steph, uh, Jada’s here too. Oh, okay. Hi, Jada. This is a surprise. Yeah. I’m sorry, am I, uh, am I supposed to believe that this is some sort of coincidence? No point, right? Okay, no games. We’re here because Dr. Evans suggested that we both talk to you. Oh my god. You gotta be kidding me. What, she just wants me to have more therapy, and more therapy, and more therapy?

Like, yes, there are gaps in my memory, but it’s because I was in a car accident. You know she doesn’t believe that’s the cause. I’m sorry, just exactly how much did she tell you about me? You’re not her patient anymore. So? And it is pretty obvious that something very serious is going on with you. Unless throwing punches in bars is normal for Everett Lynch.

No, it’s not. Alright, but please, I, I, I had a few drinks, alright? Like, it was one night. You insisted that you were Bobby Stein. You made a pass at me. What? No, I didn’t. Yes, you did. First thing the next morning. Look, I know this is really confusing for you. Not being able to remember. But it was like you were too Very different people yesterday.

And that is when Dr. Evans said, She thinks you were dissociating. She thinks you have DID. Marlena.

Good morning, AJ. Uh, meeting at house call? Oh. Something like that. Hmm.

Good morning, you little charmer. Oh my goodness, you look just

Sorry. Um, I’m used to him being my grandson. I’m the one who’s sorry, Marlena.

Rafe, I explained this to you yesterday. You did, yeah. But the thing is, the more I thought about it The less your explanation made sense. Excuse me? You’re the attorney. You’re the attorney who arranged for the adoption, right? So how the hell did you not know that it never went through? You don’t think that Sloan was motivated to keep me in the dark?

So the adoption agency never got in touch with you? You were never involved in the handoff in any way after Sloan took over? Even after starting off as attorney of record. Really? Look at you. So fresh. No, no, no. Don’t cry. That’s his quiet cry. It’s okay. Well, I’ll leave you two to bond with your son. Thank you so much.

It’s my pleasure to Okay. Getting my free time back made me happy. Just like it would in this moment. Are we done, Commissioner? Why, Eric Brady, you are the last person I’d expect to be commenting on my loins. Not that I’m complaining. It’s about time you and I had another chat. Great, your place or mine?

It’s about Sloan. She told me everything. Uh, about? About Jude. Who you knew all along was E. J. Nicole’s son. What you used to blackmail her. Wait, she told you that? Yeah, right before she skipped town. So did you help her? Leo, do you know where she went? Do I? No, no, I have no idea where Sloane could be. You, you sick, disgusting, I was told you fled Salem.

Keep your distance. Oh, keep my distance? Really? Well, how long were you waiting there? Were you waiting for EJ to leave? Subs I’m not worried about EJ. You’re not worried about EJ. Well, you should be. And you should also be worried about me because, so help me, Sloan, if you come ten feet near my baby, I will kill you.

Okay, listen. I’m not here to see Jude. I came to see you, Nicole. There is something that you have to hear.

TID. Dr. Evans thinks that I have multiple personality disorder. She thinks, she thinks that you may have developed this as some sort of coping mechanism when you were a child. Oh. Because of the abuse that you suffered. Oh, okay. Don’t you see how this could make so much sense?

Does it, does it make sense? Uh, no. The short answer is no. It does not make any sense. Think about it. Why does Jada only remember you as Bobby, when I only know you as Everett? And you don’t remember cheating on me with Stephanie, because you weren’t even conscious of it. And you don’t remember your childhood, because you did everything in your power to bury those memories.

Or, or, or there’s uh, there’s another explanation. You know? One that makes actual sense. This does make sense. You have an alter ego. And he exists to protect you. Oh, okay. Thank you so much, Jada, for your armchair diagnosis. But I don’t need any protection. Thank you very much. Thank you very much. Okay. I get that this can feel scary.

Overwhelming. But you’re keeping your past buried. Shh, shh, shh. Dr. Evans is confident. Shut up! Everett doesn’t need to know any of that. And I’m gonna make sure he never does.

You don’t have to apologize to me. We’re all victims here. And I know how much you both suffered and I’m so glad that you have been reunited with your son. Thank you, Marlena. I want to assure you that, um, he had an enormous amount of love the first six months of his life. I don’t doubt that for a minute.

I know you’re very good to your own children, and, um, that gives me comfort. And I know that you and Nicole will be amazing and loving parents to I love you. I will always love you. Marlena. I just wanted to say that you’ve been very gracious about all this. Thank you. Of course. Give my best to Nicole.

Why are you in such a hurry to get rid of me? You’re right, because I have nothing else better to do. Look, Melinda, I’ve got a job to do. Yesterday you said that you and I have to be on the same side, and I agree. You catch the criminals, I put them behind bars. But it is no wonder that your case clearance rate is so low.

Because you don’t start with motive first. I mean, truly, what would I have to gain by giving Nicole and EJ’s baby to Sloan? I mean, the risk alone to my career, my reputation, and the ever vengeful DiMeras. I mean, we’re talking madness. Now, you have known me a long time. Do I seem mad to you? Well, all right, I guess the detective in me just needed, uh, Tyler’s loose strings and a bow.

I’ll let you get back to work. Man, I’m


Wait, does Sloan have Jude? You poor thing, is that why you is where he belongs. When I learned the truth, I took him right to Nicole and EJ. Wow. How incredibly honorable of you. Yeah, but when the thing is, I got back to my place, there was no sign of Sloane. Well, that’s too bad. Look, if I knew where she was, I would tell you.

The hell you would! I would, Eric, I swear. Look, I can tell by the way you’re looking at me with your eyes all squinched up and your nostrils flaring that you think I’m this horrible, amoral creep. Because that’s exactly who you are. No, I am not. Look, I tried to do the right thing more than once. Yeah, right.

Look, at the, at the christening, I almost said something. Almost! Okay, look, I admit, I can be Leo the Cowardly Lion sometimes. But, I swear, Eric, on all that is holy. And no, I’m not a religious person, but I do have respect for the sacred that I have been trying, I really have, to be, to be brave and noble and honest.

You’ve got a noble bone in your body. That is very hurtful. You sat on a story. You kept from publishing it because you didn’t want to kill the goose that laid the golden egg. Yes, well that very apt idiom was given rise to, uh, if my preternaturally retentive memory serves, by one of Aesop’s fables referring to an unprofitable action motivated by Exactly.

So money’s all dried up, and there is no more Sloane. She’s gone. And you’re gonna start dealing with me now.

I thought I could just turn my back and walk away. But I realized I wouldn’t be able to live with myself if I didn’t face you. Oh, that’s the only reason that you couldn’t live with yourself? Not to mention all the other awful, unforgivable things that you’ve done? At least let me try to explain. Now you stole my baby and you made me believe that he was dead!

You know what, Sloan? You want to be accountable? Bend the ear of the police commissioner with all your pathetic excuses, okay? In fact, I will call him for you. But just wait, please. Don’t you I am so sorry. Profoundly sorry. I regret all the pain that you’ve suffered. I do. But you need to hear, and no, I didn’t plan it.

Oh, well, why didn’t you just tell me that in the first place? So taking my baby was what? Just an impulse, a knee jerk reaction? Dimitri showed up at my doorstep with your son. I had just had a miscarriage. The adoption, I had counted on it falling through. I had hit bottom. And then, all of a sudden, A baby showed up at my, my, in my home.

It, it felt like it was fate. Fate? Fate? I’ll show you fate.

Eric, listen to me, please. The day I figured out what happened, the very day that I learned Nicole’s baby was still alive, I went right to EJ and Nicole’s to try and tell them. They wouldn’t listen to me. So you went to Sloan instead? You took our money to keep your mouth shut? I had just lost Dimitri. I had nothing left.

I was desperate. Selfish son of a Police! Help! Help! Please! Hey, Eric! What’s going on here? Go. Get out of my sight. Hey. I’m sorry I lost my control. Obviously. Yeah, well, I can’t say I blame you. I just Thought he might help lead me to Sloan, but turns out to be worthless. Yeah. Look, uh, I’m sorry that we haven’t come up with anything solid yet, but we’re not giving up.

I know. I also know that’s not gonna change anything finding her. It’s not gonna make me a father again.

I deserved that. Oh, you deserve more than that.

You know what, Sloan? When you and I were pregnant at the same time, and I didn’t know who the father was, I thought, Okay, this is going to be a very interesting journey. And then you missed Harry. And my heart went out to you. Because I know that pain. I know it so well. I lost Two babies before Jude.

But when he was born, it was a miracle. Have you? When that doctor told me that they cremated my son before I could hold him one last time, do you have any idea, any sense of what that was like? Because you don’t! You don’t! And because of your lies, I’ve missed six months of my son’s life! And I am not the only one who’s suffered.

Your husband. You’re, you’re wonderful. Husband who’s only wanted a child his entire life. One wish, one wish, Sloan. And when he finally got that wish, the child he thought was his was ripped from his hands. And mine. Oh my god! I love that child with all of my heart. Stop! The child doesn’t want or need you anymore.

You are never gonna see him again. Ever!

You know, when I thought Jude was my son,

you made me out to be a lunatic. And when I stole him, when I stole him from the Horton Town Square that day because you negligently left him alone, you made me grovel for forgiveness. What kind of person sinks that low, Sloan? I don’t know. Maybe a person like you, Nicole. What kind of person? Didn’t you do the exact same thing?

Bobby? Jada. I am so glad you stopped by. You have no idea how much I missed you. Bobby, what are you doing? Ah, you’re my wife. Come on, baby. You’re my wife. We are divorced. Oh, no. No, we’re not. We’re not divorced. We’re not divorced. You signed the papers. Actually, I think it was Everett who signed the papers.

Yeah, that was Everett. I’m no lawyer, but I’m pretty sure that makes them invalid, right? Why would you want to be married to me? Why would I want to be married to you? Oh, come on. You know the answer to that. Because we were so, so, so good together. Good? Our marriage fell apart. And then you bought a ring for Stephanie.

Oh no, that was Everett. Everett bought the ring for Stephanie. Sorry, but uh, spoiled princess thing isn’t really my vibe. No offense. None taken. But what we had, that was special. Yeah. That was real. Are you serious?

Are you even real? You are just a part of someone’s psyche. Am I even real? I’m standing right in front of you. What kind of a question is that? What kind of a conversation is this? This conversation is pointless. Everett. Everett’s not here! You know what? I want you both to get out. I said get out. I SAID GET OUT!

I’m sorry, man. I know that nothing is gonna bring Jude back to you. It may not feel this way right now, but I do think bringing Sloane in will help. I’m sure leads are hard to come by. Yeah. Yeah, I just, um, questioned Linda Trask, which unfortunately was a dead end. I mean, it It’s crazy to me that she was not involved in the handoff of the baby, which she swears she wasn’t.

I don’t see any motive there. What did you just say? I said I don’t see any motive there. No, before that. That she wasn’t involved in the handoff of the baby. No, she said Sloan cut her out of the loop before it all happened. No, she didn’t. That wasn’t even close. Melinda’s the one who handed off Jude at the door.

What? God, why haven’t I even seen this sooner? Eric! I mean, I was just, I was overwhelmed. Eric, Eric, this is it! This is it. This means that Trask knew all along that she knew that Jude was Nicole’s baby.

I am never going to get any work done, am I? I just ran into Eric Brady, who told me that Sloan confessed everything that hit the Yellow Brick Road to Nowheresville. Not everything requires a Wizard of Oz. And not everything requires a snark, Elphaba. Elphaba? Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West, played brilliantly by Margaret Hamilton.

Oh, for God’s sake! Look, Leo, I already heard all about it from Rafe when he came around asking questions. Well, he’s definitely gonna have questions for me. Everybody knows I blackmailed her. Your problem, not mine. Come on, you are the DA. When they come for me, I need to know you’re gonna have my back. Deep breath, Leo.

I just got Rafe to take his snooping around elsewhere. I am more than capable of getting him to pursue juicier avenues than you. Avenues? Honey, I am a full fledged boulevard and as juicy as they come, I’ve also been told I’m quite scrumptious. Right. I didn’t mean to insult you, Leo. The point I’m trying to make is to get you to calm down.

Because the only person that can truly prove that you were blackmailing Sloane is Sloane. And she is long gone.

You don’t think I’m caught up to speed on the Salem history, Nicole? Oh girls, you better get to work. Get out of my house. Oh no, Aaron told me all your gory details about what you did to his twin sister, Sammy. Yeah, obviously you were as desperate as I was. But maybe, maybe, you could extend the same grace that you were once extended.

And just let me What, get away with it? No, never, Sloane, never!

We’re not going anywhere, Everett. Jada and I are here for you. I said, I do not Get out!

Please get out. Oh,

here he is here. Fantastic, Dr. Evans. Come right in, please join the circus. Isn’t this fantastic? Let me guess, you’re to scoop me up and deposit me to the loony bin. You have a, you have an illness that needs treatment, Everett. Bobby? It’s Bobby. Okay, Bobby, the good news is you can be helped. Oh, thank you so much.

Thank you so much, but I’m fine. Everett’s not fine. Everett is fine! Everett is fine. I will make sure that Everett is fine.

There are ugly things from Everett’s past that the three of you cannot even begin to imagine. Things that he does not need to face again. So get it through your heads. He doesn’t want your help. He doesn’t need your help. He has me! So you admit that you’re keeping things from him. Your words. Why do you get to decide whatever it can or cannot handle?

Because I do. That’s why. I forget. Did I, did I ask you to leave? I think I did. Evan, I know you’re in there. And I believe that you do want to deal with your past. That’s how you can move forward. That’s why you went to Dr. Evans in the first place.

You know she’s right. Everett, I will be there for you every step of the way. Don’t listen to her. Don’t listen to her. Don’t listen to her. Don’t listen to her. Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah! My head.

Lay still. Lay still. You’re gonna be alright. I know what you wanna do to me. You’re Now you’re never gonna see Everett again. Never. Ever. Never. Your blood pressure is highly elevated. You need to get treatment. Now if you won’t do it for, for yourself, then do it for Everett. Please.


I’ll get you some water. This is, this is good news, right? Are you okay? He, he was so adamant. What if I never see the real Everett again?

Oh, for heaven’s sake, what now? You lied to me with the MDA. Oh, and you know this to be true because? I got proof. That you told me to go catch criminals, that’s exactly what I’m doing. You’re under arrest. Stand up. Hands behind your back.

My main man, Jude. Hey, hey, hey, keep your voice down, would you? He’s napping. We’re also changing his name. What? Jude is such a great name. We’re changing it. Alright, you don’t have to get snippy. Well, baby boy DeMiro, you cute little thing. I am so glad you are back where you belong. And I am so glad I ran into you and your snooty daddy.

Oh, are you? I am. See, now that the switcheroo is I thought that you and I could clarify the terms of our agreement. Obviously, I don’t have to keep my mouth shut about what I know anymore. But I do get to keep the cash, right? Think of it as free money? Nothing in this life is free, Leo. Spoken like a true cynic.

I can be cynical, too, when I put my usually Pollyanna, cockeyed, optimist mind to it. What the hell are you blathering on about? Well, I’ve been thinking. Always a dangerous endeavor, I know. But in this case, I think thinking is the way to go. And I think ending this conversation is the way to go. Are you sure you don’t want to hear what I have to say?

That might change your often condescending and insulting behavior toward me. It might even cause you to Suck up to me and lick my boots. What are you talking about? Speak English, would you, Leo? I’ve been thinking that there must be a part of this baby switch story that isn’t public knowledge. Meaning what?

Meaning, why would you pay me not to tell anyone, not even your own wife, that you had a kid? It doesn’t make any sense. And why wouldn’t you want that kid back as soon as you found out the truth about him?

Yes, now we really get down to brass tacks, huh? Wow, all this endless dribble about how you’re risking your, your freedom. And you can’t live with yourself and you have to come here to explain and to apologize. Well that’s just a big lie. Lie. Because you don’t want to live on the run. And you think I’m stupid enough to buy your BS so that you can avoid it?

But you know what? You’re lucky, honey. You don’t have to disappear. That’s what Statesville’s for. And they would be thrilled to welcome you for an extended stay, I’m sure. You hypocrite. You call me what you want. I’m calling the cops.

Previously on The Way Home When a new family member was born, they would add the name to the list. And when he died, they would write down the date, close the book, and move on. Wherever we end up, let’s promise to meet at the Roxy on this date. A certain wayward son, you decided not to show up. I needed to be held!

I needed to be kissed! I’ve been waiting for Jacob to walk 20 years and he’s not coming home. What if I could just talk to him? You’ll warn him somehow. Yeah.

I’m so sorry. Hi. Haven’t you been working long enough? Um.

Summer: I’ve heard, um, some buzz about a deal between jabot and jasper foley, is that confirmed?

Kyle: Uh, the details are still being ironed out, but it’s in the works.

Summer: That’s major, he’s a legend.

Kyle: It will be a significant asset. The licensing of his products is in our best interest.

Summer: Yeah, of course, nobody could think otherwise.

Kyle: Well, you may be surprised.

Summer: What does that mean?

Kyle: They haven’t called.

Summer: What?

Kyle: Claire and harrison haven’t called because everything’s fine, so don’t worry.

Summer: I don’t know what you’re talking about. I’m checking my phone for work messages.

Kyle: Hmm, right.

Summer: It’s her, it’s claire. Something’s obviously wrong.

Jack: Hi.

Nikki: Oh, jack. Thank you for meeting me on such short notice.

Jack: I’m sorry I didn’t respond to your text right away. I was in the middle of something.

Nikki: Oh, I hope I didn’t take you away from something important at jabot.

Jack: No, no, no. It was personal, nothing business. It’s all been settled now.

Nikki: I can read you better than you think. What’s going on?

Victor: Hello, diane.

Diane: Victor, what a surprise.

Victor: Were you trying to hide from me?


Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Kyle: Don’t panic. Claire sent a photo.

Summer: It’s harrison with the caterpillars.

Kyle: He wanted her to tell us they’re still, quote, “munching along”.

Summer: Look at the way that he’s pointing at them.

Kyle: Like one of the price is right models. You feel better?

Summer: I’m just so glad that harrison’s okay. After everything that he’s been through, he’s still himself.

Kyle: He’s resilient. Thank god for that. It’s amazing how just a picture of him can turn my whole day around.

Summer: I know, right? I didn’t even know what that was like before harrison came along.

Kyle: Yeah, so, clearly, he and claire are having fun. So, we can stop worrying.

Summer: It was nice of her to message us.

Kyle: Does this mean you’ve changed your mind about claire? Do you feel better about claire being harrison’s nanny?

Claire: There were so many. That was so cool.

Harrison: I know. Did they like it?

Claire: Yeah, I think your parents really appreciated the update. That was so thoughtful. Hey, you know, we could start a log to keep track of the caterpillar’s progress.

Harrison: Have you ever seen a caterpillar turn into a butterfly?

Claire: In fact, I have. There were caterpillars in the backyard where I grew up, and I watched them build their cocoons. And then, I waited. And I waited.

Harrison: Waiting is hard.

Claire: You’re telling me. I was worried the day was never gonna come or that I would miss it. And then one day, I was sitting outside when I had just about given up, and I heard crunch, crunch, crunch. So, I turned around, and then I saw it. A butterfly made its way out, and then took off flying through the sky.

Harrison: Wow!

Claire: Yeah, it’s pretty cool, isn’t it? I mean, they start out just crawling around, and then they go to sleep for a really long time. And then, one day, they’ve grown wings, and they can fly. It’s a metamorphosis.

Harrison: A meta-what?

Claire: Metamorphosis. It means change. I feel really hopeful when I see something like that. You know, you start off as one thing, and then you become something else.

Harrison: You’re so lucky. Daddy said I have to be patient.

Claire: Well, good things come to those who wait. Or so I’ve been told.

Harrison: I hope it happens. Then we can see the butterflies together.

Claire: Yeah!

Jack: First, tell me why you reached out. What’s going on? Did you feel the urge to drink?

Nikki: Oh, no, no. Just the opposite. I was calling to share some news with you, but it starts off bad.

Jack: Okay, I’ll brace myself.

Nikki: Jordan has been found. Alive.

Jack: Wait, she survived the fall into the river? She can’t be in very good shape. Please tell me she hasn’t hurt anyone else.

Nikki: No, no. She’s in custody, locked up in a maximum security.

Jack: Good. How are you dealing with that news?

Nikki: Well, it was quite a shock. I would rather she be gone for good.

Jack: Yeah, given what she did to harrison and claire, that makes two of us.

Nikki: The last time I got news like this, it drove me straight to the bottle. But this time, I didn’t feel the need.

Jack: So what do you think was different this time?

Nikki: Well, I had my outpatient session earlier, and I shared at a meeting. I’m just feeling more grounded than I have been.

Jack: Wonderful. It’s real progress. Thank you for sharing that progress with me.

Nikki: I put a lot on you. I thought it would be nice for you to hear something good for a change.

Jack: I’m very proud of you.

Nikki: So, at this moment, I am stable enough to hear what you clearly don’t wanna tell me.

Jack: When you asked for my help earlier, I immediately, automatically said yes.

Nikki: This is about you being my sponsor?

Jack: Yes. I’ve given that idea some more thought.

Nikki: Because of the lengths you went to save me that night, I completely understand. Are you trying to tell me that you can no longer be my sponsor?

Victor: Your husband put my wife in danger. He, um… spent the night with her. In her hotel room, he got drugged up and she got sloshed. What’s your opinion about that?

Diane: Well, it was– it was a complicated night, but jack ended up in more danger than nikki. I mean, he passed out. She didn’T.

Victor: So he told you about all that?

Diane: Yes, we don’t keep secrets.

Victor: So you knew where he was all night, and you knew that he took pills and acted like an idiot?

Diane: Jack had his reasons. He– he wanted to get nikki to go to rehab.

Victor: He could’ve killed them both.

Diane: Victor, he did what he thought was best in the moment.

Victor: Let’s recapitulate this. Your husband spends all night with my wife in a hotel suite. He takes pills, gets all hopped up, she is sloshed. And you don’t think that’s a betrayal? Uhhh.

Summer: Don’t push me.

Kyle: That’s not what I’m doing.

Summer: You are. I– I just saw an adorable photo of our son. You are taking advantage of my warm and fuzzy mood.

Kyle: Okay, forget I said anything.

Summer: Look, yes. Fine. I would like to let go of my mistrust of claire. But it takes time.

Kyle: I see you’re trying. I appreciate it. I know it’s hard for you.

Summer: I know it’s not all about me. After harrison’s kidnapping, he deserves to be around somebody that makes him feel safe and secure. And who makes him smile. And claire does that.

Kyle: And if you have doubts, just take a look at this happy kid.

Summer: Okay. I will try to embrace your certainty. Just give me a little breathing room, okay?

Kyle: Will do.

Summer: Gosh. All right, now that we have proof that our son is okay, should we maybe stop slacking off and head to work?

Kyle: Do we have to?

Summer: Is there something that you’re avoiding at the office? Wait, whatever happened between you and your mom, did you smooth all of that over?

Kyle: Definitely not. It’s bad. It’s tense. Awkward. She thinks I’m undermining her.

Summer: Are you?

Kyle: My skill set is stronger than hers. I one-up her without even trying. If she was actually on top of everything, this wouldn’t happen.

Summer: I don’t disagree with you. Look, as long as you’re not making underhanded moves behind her back, you should be fine. Kyle? Are you? What have you done?

Diane: Jack was in that hotel suite to stop your wife from drinking. He wanted to do whatever it took to get nikki sober.

Victor: He could’ve killed my wife. All because of his desperate need to act like a hero.

Diane: Well, it was a calculated move on jack’s part. I– I think what he did was selfless.

Victor: You really believe that? You’re trying to convince yourself. If I were you, diane. I’d take a very close and cold and hard look at the man you married to before he ruins your future.

Jack: Believe me, I do not take this decision lightly. I wish I could stay on as your sponsor, but I have to accept that this impacts you and my family.

Nikki: Of course. Family first. Kyle and diane need to know that you’re safe.

Jack: Diane was terrified by what I did. Not just staying out all night, but finding out I was with you and that I overdosed.

Nikki: I’m surprised she’s still speaking to me.

Jack: No, she’s happy that you found help. She is devastated by my choices.

Nikki: It was awful for me to see you like that. I’m sure it was equally devastating for her to hear about it.

Jack: She thinks it’s gonna happen again, and I tried to reassure her, but as you know, we addicts cannot guarantee anything.

Nikki: True. Now, jack, I just wanna ask you one more time. Please be honest. Have you really not been tempted to take any pills since that night?

Jack: I will admit it was a heady experience. But no, I have not had another pill. I’ve gone to meetings. I’ve gotten in touch with myself. I’ve tried to be as honest with myself as I can be, and…

Nikki: And what do you find?

Jack: I don’t wanna take that risk again. I’ve got too much to lose.

Nikki: Well, I’m glad you have your priorities straight. I did not, until you snapped me out of my self-pity and self-hatred.

Jack: Yeah, I knew that wasn’t you in the moment. I knew that was your addiction talking.

Nikki: You risked your sobriety and life to save mine, and I will be forever indebted to you. My god, what does it say about me that I would do it all again in a heartbeat?

Nikki: And that is why you can’t be my sponsor. It’s not fair to you or your family or diane. Funny, there was a time I would’ve been happy to cause some trouble for her.

Jack: Yeah, I remember it well.

Nikki: But to be honest, I owe her a debt of gratitude also. I mean, she let you be my sponsor, and she was surprisingly accepting. Please don’t feel guilty about this. I will find another sponsor. And you will always remain my dearest friend. Slowing my cancer from growing

Kyle: Jasper foley agreement. My mother was the person who worked on it initially.

Summer: And then what happened?

Kyle: I closed the deal without her input, and when she found out about it, she told me not to finalize it.

Summer: Because you went behind her back.

Kyle: It’s a good deal. It’s fiscally responsible. The only reason it hasn’t progressed is because of her fragile ego.

Summer: Kyle, I know you don’t wanna hear this, but your mom is technically your boss. If you did that with any other superior…

Kyle: No, I get it. I get it. I just hoped that she would see that I was doing what was best for the company, that I’m capable of more.

Summer: Look, I know that jabot is your world. I’ve seen how much time and energy and effort you’ve poured into its success. Jack should see that. So should diane.

Kyle: I just hope she doesn’t destroy the deal because she’s upset with me. Who knows what she’ll do.

Summer: Your mother is unpredictable.

Kyle: You have anything else you wanna add to the subject?

Summer: You know how I feel about your mom. She abandoned you as a child and repeatedly put herself first. As a mom, that makes me angry. And as someone who still cares about you, I don’t like it at all.

Kyle: Thanks for that. I appreciate the support.

Summer: You know, it’s ironic.

Kyle: Hmm.

Summer: A lot of the issues in our marriage were because of my distrust of diane. And now you’re feeling the way that I did.

Kyle: I love my mom. But I’m starting to see things about her differently.

Summer: Just be careful. Don’t lose sight of your ultimate goal.

Kyle: Thanks for the advice.

Summer: Thanks for not pushing me about claire.

Kyle: We have a pretty good kid, don’t we?

Summer: He’s the best.

Kyle: Hmm.

Summer: And he’s gonna be okay.

Kyle: Yeah, we’ll make sure of it.

Jack: Even if I’m not your sponsor, we could still go to meetings together.

Nikki: I would like that.

Jack: Promise me you’ll stay in contact.

Nikki: You do the same.

Jack: Yeah. Well, if there’s any upside to this, victor will be happy.

Nikki: I have a confession to make. I didn’t tell him that I asked you to be my sponsor again.

Jack: Gee, I wonder why.

Nikki: Oh, he would’ve come around.

Jack: About you, maybe. Not me. No, when you went away to rehab, he came to visit and he was out for blood. No, he warned me in no uncertain terms to stay away from you.

Nikki: I’m sure he’s calmed down since then.

Jack: About me, I don’t think so. No, he hasn’t forgiven me. I think he’s gonna hold this against me for a long time.

Nikki: Well, that would be wrong of him. Our spouses may not understand what we lived through that night. But we do.

Victor: There was a time when you and I were on the same side, right?

Diane: Yes, we were. But our marriage ended when you left me for nikki.

Victor: I used to admire you. You know, you were tough, you were savvy. Took no bull, you were a survivor.

Diane: And yet when i returned to town alive, a lot of people weren’t pleased, including you.

Victor: Because no one understood, including me, why you turned to jack abbott. He’s weak. You, on the other hand, are a viper.

Diane: Well, there’s the victor that I know.

Victor: So you allowed jack to defang you. He took power away from you. And your son is in the process of doing the same. I used to admire you, respect you. Now I pity you.

Michael: I’m sorry I’m late. I was getting a status update on jordan. All good.

Victor: I have no time for this, okay?

Michael: When you said that you wanted to meet, I was hoping we could, uh, grab a drink, clear the air.

Victor: There’s no need.

Michael: Victor, I know you’re displeased about how things turned out with jordan, that cole and I stepped in and undercut your plans, but–

Victor: Let me tell you something, michael baldwin. You betrayed me. You’re fired.

Michael: Seems I’m out of a job. Wanna buy me a drink? Looking for a smarter way to mop?

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Sally: Summer, hi.

Summer: Sally.

Sally: Getting some fresh air?

Summer: Yeah. I mean, it’s a beautiful day, right? I guess the traveling carnival’s not here anymore. Did you get a chance to go to that?

Sally: No. No. Been there, done that. Did you take harrison?

Summer: He– he loved it. He loved the rides, the candy.

Sally: Yeah, I bet connor would’ve loved it, too.

Summer: I’m sorry he wasn’t here for it. I hope that chelsea and adam’s visit with him goes well.

Sally: Yeah, me too. I mean, you know, they’ve all had a really rough time with it, and adam’s been a wreck. But, you know, he just– is doing his best to be there for connor.

Summer: I’m sure adam leans on you a lot.

Sally: Yeah, but, you know, I want to be there for him, so…

Summer: It can be hard to be the supportive one. Though I don’t imagine being adam’s girlfriend is very easy.

Sally: We have had our challenges, but we are great. And right now, connor comes first. And I support that completely. You know, he adores connor, and I just wanna do what I can to, you know, get him through this.

Summer: That’s very mature of you. And perceptive.

Sally: Two things you normally don’t associate with me.

Summer: Look, I have reason to doubt your sincerity.

Sally: Can’t argue with that.

Summer: Sally, look, I assume you’re aware that chelsea suggested you take over for her at marchetti while she’s on leave?

Sally: Mm-hmm. Yeah, I am.

Summer: Look, from a business standpoint, it does make sense. You’ve got the fashion experience, you have knowledge of the brand.

Sally: But the fact that it’s me, that’s the sticking point, right?

Summer: You and i working together? Yeah, it’s kind of hard to imagine how that would go. But look, I do think it warrants a discussion.

Sally: Yeah, yeah, okay, let’s– let’s talk.

Diane: Here’s to being schooled by victor newman.

Michael: I’d say being bludgeoned with a hammer would be a more accurate description.

Diane: So, what did you do for him to be so angry at you?

Michael: Well, I can’t exactly get into details. Let’s just say I disobeyed orders.

Diane: Wow, it must’ve been some orders. Pretty bad for him to fire you.

Michael: This isn’t the first time I’ve been fired by victor newman. And I don’t anticipate that it will be the last.

Diane: I mean, what is the deal with that guy? Why does he wield so much control? Why is whatever victor says considered gold?

Michael: You two were having a very intense conversation when I walked in. Leave an impact?

Diane: I just hate that he gets to me. I mean, I should know better.

Michael: Let me guess. He did that victor thing where he says something horribly disparaging that somehow rings true.

Diane: Yes. He wanted to talk to me because he is angry at jack for just something that he did to try to help nikki.

Michael: What, as her sponsor?

Diane: Yes. He says that what jack did was reckless and dangerous and he blames jack for putting nikki at risk.

Michael: And how did you see it? This thing jack did.

Diane: Same way victor does. Of course, I couldn’t admit that. But I– I find myself siding with victor on this.

Kyle: Sorry to interrupt. Just wanted to check on how it’s going.

Harrison: Oh, hey, dad.

Nikki: Hey, big guy. Victor. I didn’t expect to see you here.

Victor: How are you doing? I’m alright.

Claire: You know what? Harrison, why don’t we, uh, why don’t we go play?

Victor: Now harrison, you better come back down again because I’m a cookie monster. I’m gonna eat all of them.

Claire: Let’s go.

Harrison: We have to come back.

Claire: Yeah, we will.

Kyle: Well.

Victor: These are good.

Kyle: I take it you are here for the cookies.

Victor: Hmm.

Kyle: Maybe a little something more?

Victor: I came by to deliver some news about jordan.

Kyle: Did they find her body?

Victor: My security team found her on the banks of the garewood river. She was still alive. And they put her into custody.

Kyle: Um, well, we– we have to increase security here. And– and for harrison, look, jordan can’t get to him again.

Victor: Well, don’t worry about that, okay? I would make absolutely certain that does not happen.

Kyle: Look, with all due respect, I don’t wanna underestimate her. She’s gotten out before.

Victor: Not gonna get out now. She’s in a maximum security prison. And I will make absolutely certain that nothing will happen to harrison.

Kyle: Thank you. Now, may I ask, who else knows? Because I was just with summer, she clearly doesn’T. She’s going to be freaked out. Does claire know?

Victor: Well, claire was shocked when I told her. But, um, I intend to talk about this with summer later.

Kyle: Would you mind if I was the one who told her?

Victor: No, of course not. So kyle, how do you– how do you like working at jabot?

Kyle: Um, yeah, things are great, thanks.

Victor: Yeah? Aren’t you now working under both of your parents? How’s that going?

Kyle: Um, we’re, uh, making it work.

Victor: Oh, yeah? Must be hard to take orders from your mother. You should be in her position, you know that.

“The darkness of bipolar

depression made me feel like

Michael: Jack took pills? Pills, after all these years. And he overdosed.

Diane: Emt’s were called.

Michael: Yeah, well, he’s taking one hell of a risk.

Diane: Yeah, I just– just don’t get it. Why he would gamble with his addiction like that, and his life.

Michael: Well, really, diane, you might not wanna be reminded of this, but… nikki and jack, they go way back. I mean, they have a long, long-standing relationship. And if one were to look at it through that lens, one might understand why he would go to such an extreme for her.

Diane: Well, that doesn’t sit well with victor.

Michael: Nor with you, by the looks of it.

Diane: Yeah. I, uh, I told jack that if he was gonna be nikki’s sponsor again, that I would walk away from our marriage. And then he backed down.

Michael: Wow. That’s quite a bluff.

Diane: Yeah. I did what I needed to do. For myself, and for jack.

Michael: Would you have done it? Walked away from the marriage? From the man you’ve wanted all these years?

Diane: I can’t live in fear of another night like that. When– when he doesn’t come home. When– when the outcome could’ve been so much worse.

Michael: Well, you better be prepared.

Diane: For what?

Michael: I mean, jack may have changed his mind about sponsoring nikki. But, um… he may resent you for putting him in that position. Remember… they have a profound relationship.

Diane: All right, michael. Nikki might be jack’s friend. But I’m his wife. And I would like to think that his love for me is more than his concern for her.

Summer: Obviously, you and i have a very… complicated history when it comes to marchetti.

Sally: Yes, there is no excuse for what I did. Working with tara to blackmail you into leaving town. Although it did lead you to running marchetti, so…

Summer: It’s not easy for me to trust you.

Sally: I get it. Really. And I– I regret what I did. I’m so sorry.

Summer: And then there’s everything with my dad. How you chose adam over him. You really, really hurt him, sally.

Sally: Look, it makes sense why you wouldn’t want me to work at your company. But I’m not gonna apologize to you for my personal life, if that’s what you’re asking.

Summer: Okay, hang on. Look, you did push me out of jabot. But… I have to admit, I’m grateful for how everything worked out. I moved to italy. Kyle and I got married. I… became harrison’s stepmom.

Sally: So not all bad.

Summer: No. And being at marchetti gave me this opportunity to lead. And that has kept me grounded through a lot of changes in my life. Moving back home, everything with my mom and my marriage ending. This company is very important to me.

Sally: I get that. I’ve loved having my own companies to run.

Summer: But it doesn’t mean that I don’t want a life outside of that. And I do want the same thing for my employees. That’s why when chelsea came to me and asked for time off to be there for connor, of course I said yes. I really want marchetti to be a place where everybody’s needs are met, so that their talents can flourish.

Sally: I’m sorry, I’m probably sticking my foot in my mouth again. But that… seems different for you.

Summer: Well… I’m not the same person I was when you first met me.

Sally: Neither am I.

Summer: Look, I can’t just forget everything that you’ve done to me. And I wouldn’t expect anything less than your best behavior at marchetti.

Sally: And you shouldn’T.

Summer: Look, sally, I have been through hell lately, so I really don’t have the time or the energy to hold a grudge anymore. You have the credentials. I’m told you’re available.

Sally: Yeah, free as a bird.

Summer: If you want the job, on an interim basis, it’s yours.

Kyle: My father wanted my mother in the co-ceo position, and I respect his choice.

Victor: Er. Oh. Wouldn’t you wanna be in charge someday?

Kyle: Well, doesn’t everyone wanna move up?

Victor: Yeah. Well, kyle, I don’t blame you if you have visions of taking over the company. You know, of all the abbots I’ve known, you’re the closest to what john abbott was like. Calm, steady.

Kyle: Wow, that’s quite the compliment.

Victor: Don’t ever underestimate your own potential.

Kyle: I won’T. I promise you that.

Victor: Okay, bye. Nice to see you, kyle.

Kyle: Thanks for coming by, victor.

Victor: I’m sure you will take care of things.

Kyle: Yes, sir. I will.

Victor: You have a nice day.

Kyle: Yeah, you get home safe.

Claire: Harrison is worn out. We had a very busy day. You saw the caterpillars?

Kyle: Yes, I did.

Claire: Is everything all right? Did– did victor say something to upset you?

Diane: I just saw victor’s car pulling out of the driveway. What did he want?

Kyle: Uh, victor came by to tell me that they found jordan. She’s alive. But in custody.

Diane: Oh, my god. I can’t believe she survived.

Kyle: Um, victor said he already told you.

Claire: He did. He wanted to tell the family himself. He’s certain that we don’t need to worry about her anymore.

Diane: Well, I hope so. For everyone’s sake.

Kyle: Are you just coming from the office?

Diane: Oh, no, no. I had some, um, outside meetings. I– I haven’t been– I haven’t been in yet.

Kyle: Hmm, outside meetings? With who?

Diane: There it is again.

Kyle: What?

Diane: Oh, that judging tone of yours. What’s the problem, kyle? Are you looking for new ways to disparage my job performance? When migraine strikes,

Sally: I would be honored to be the interim creative director at marchetti. Thank you.

Summer: You’re welcome. Don’t let me down.

Sally: I won’T. I won’T. And I am ready to hit the ground running. Although, I– I really don’t wanna bother chelsea right now with any questions.

Summer: Agreed. I think that’s for the best.

Sally: Okay, so, um… if you don’t mind, I would really like to come by the office. You know, whenever works for you. To, you know, see where you’re at with the line, see what’s needed. Maybe speak to some of the staff. Is there a problem?

Summer: Um… no. Everything’s fine. Um, I actually… have some time right now. Should we get to work?

Nikki: Hello.

Victor: Hi, sweetheart. How did your session go?

Nikki: Very well. I feel strong and positive.

Victor: Uh-huh. Now, have you thought about a new sponsor? Can’t be jack abbott. He fell off the damn wagon.

Nikki: Actually, I did ask jack if he could continue as my sponsor.

Victor: I don’t get it. After what he put you through?

Nikki: Well, don’t worry. He turned me down.

Victor: Really?

Nikki: Yeah, I think it’s just been too taxing for him and diane. I can’t blame her. If I were in her shoes, I would probably feel the same way.

Victor: How could you even consider this?

Nikki: Jack has been a tremendous help to me as a friend and as a sponsor, and I will continue to rely on him.

Victor: No! You can’t go back to him. I don’t want you anywhere near that guy.

Claire: I’m gonna go check on harrison.

Kyle: You know, mom, why do you always assume the worst of me? I was just curious if you were having a meeting with the accounting team.

Diane: Sure you were.

Kyle: You know, I just wanna stay in the loop on top of things. Most companies would value that in their coo.

Diane: Well, most coo’s wouldn’t constantly be questioning their ceo. When is this gonna stop, kyle?

Jack: What’s going on here?

Diane: Nothing, nothing. Uh, did you talk to nikki?

Jack: I did. It’s done. I’m no longer nikki’s sponsor. So somebody wanna tell me what I just walked in on?

Kyle: There’s nothing. Nothing at all. Everything is fine.

Announcer: Next week on the young and the restless.

Mariah: All of this admiration for claire. Is there maybe something else going on?

Audra: This has nothing to do with vengeance. That’s your game and your weakness.

Tucker: What is it you want?

Audra: I want glissade. I want it all.

Ashley: Am I creating some kind of a psychosis? Am I delusional? What is happening?

Alan: No, I think it happened exactly as you say. It just didn’t happen with me. I believe you spent the evening with, uh… my brother.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Hey, jason. You free? ‘Cause I’d like to, uh, clear the air.

[ Siren wails ] Elizabeth. Hey. How are you? I am so sorry about your dad. And I’m sorry you and brook lynn couldn’t go on your honeymoon. It’s okay. There’ll be other opportunities to travel. I’m just glad we didn’t get on that plane. Yeah. You know, I didn’t know your dad for very long, but he really touched my life. And my boys were really fond of him. Cameron was sad to hear the news, but he sends his best. I know he was fond of your family. And he loved you, elizabeth. The feeling was mutual. If there’s anything I can do, any support I can offer, will you just tell me? Oh, well, in that case, uh, my dad named me executor. Do you know who I can talk to to get a couple copies of his death certificate? I need them for insurance, social security, and a couple other things. There’s so much red tape. Yeah. Normally, the funeral home can provide a copy of that. Right. I knew that. Um, I am so scattered right now. I’m sorry to bother you. Wait. Actually, you know what? The hospital’s record department should have it. You’re already here. Let’s figure this out. This is just absurd! They’re acting like I’m leading the charge to have heather’s conviction overthrown, to have her walk out of prison a free woman! All I have done is request copies of her records.

[ Sighs ] We could have a problem here. And I was well within my purview to do it, too. Not as the mayor. As a citizen. Because, for better or worse, heather gave me her power of attorney. We’ve got to find out who got their hands on this information and leaked it to the press. Curtis: I th ought I should bethe one to show you this. I’m glad you haven’t seen it yet. Portia: Wait a minute. She’s really going through with this? No. No, no, no. H-how could laura even think of letting heather webber walk free after everything that she has done? I thought jordan was overreacting when she spoke with aunt stella and trina about revisiting heather’s case. Honey, I’m just as shocked as you are to learn that they’re moving forward. But there’s got to be something more to this story because the laura I know would never do this. Fbi. Alright, brennan. Let’s go. Where’s your jumpsuit? Dry cleaners? Well, let’s hope we can find you another one. What you got on is gonna be a little drafty where you’re going. And that is? Back behind bars where you belong. You’re a dangerous prisoner. And a flight risk. And the sooner you’re back in pentonville… the safer we’ll all be. Carly! Hey, molly. Hi. Hey. Um, do you have a second to talk in private? Ohh. I’m so busy right now. I’m so sorry. Oh, please, please. It’s about what happened at brook lynn and chase’s wedding reception. I just — I need to know what happened with kristina.

Thank you. Okay. The records department will have your copies in 20 minutes. Oh. Thanks, elizabeth. This helps a lot. I was dreading having to track this down. It’s one thing I can check off my list. And if I’m being honest, it’s a pretty long list. You’ve got a lot going on. It seems that way, although maybe it’s because the reality of my dad’s death keeps hitting me in the face about every 30 seconds. It’s like I’m moving underwater… like everything is slower because — because I’m slower. Well, it’s good you recognize that. And if you can stand a little advice, just accept that what you’re going through is a lot. And don’t be afraid to ask for help. I just did. And you came through. Um, now that we have a little bit of time, can I talk to you about something else? Sure. Uh, it’s about finn. I thought you might ask. Uh, he was drinking when you showed up? He was. In retrospect, I may have handled that wrong. Finn wanted some time with violet, so instead of going straight from the airport to his place, we went back to the quartermaines’ first. But I-I didn’t want him to be alone, and I thought that violet could use the support, so I called you. Obviously it blindsided him when you walked in. Chase… finn… he’d already been drinking by the time I got there. Yes, I surprised him, but his reaction was his own. It had nothing to do with the timing, and it certainly wasn’t your fault for calling me. Finn realizes he was out of line, and I-it really shook him up — not just that he drank, but, you know, how it made him feel acting the way he did towards you. But he’s doing all the right things, okay? He’s going to the meetings. He’s doing the work. He told me. Finn is gonna be okay. He’s not gonna keep turning to alcohol. I wasn’t at chase and brook lynn’s wedding or their wedding reception. I was at home with my feet up. So I don’t really know what I could tell you. So you don’t know that sonny attacked dex? Look. This isn’t an official inquiry, carly. I’m not here as the A.D.A. And you’re not the first person I’ve spoken to. I talked to anna, off the record. But I don’t know what else I can tell you. You’re — you’re family. Carly! You were kristina’s stepmother for years and my aunt by marriage, which shows you just how convoluted our family ties are. But what I mean is… you’ve known me my whole life, and I’m asking you for help. I don’t know what I can tell you. I wasn’t there. But jason was. Jason tells you everything, right? Kristina witnessed an altercation, and she had a physical response, one that could impact the baby she’s carrying for tj and me. I would ask her myself, but I-I just… I can’t risk upsetting her right now. She’s too fragile. But I think I have a right as the mother of the baby she’s carrying to know what happened. As long as you understand that what I say stays between us. If you turn this into a statement for the D.A., I will have no recollection of his conversation whatsoever. Understood. I still can’t imagine laura taking this on. Well, I can. No, she is testing the waters on this, and this article is proof of that. This is another step on the road that ends with heather webber being released. [Scoffs] Okay. Honey, we’re not gonna let that happen. Alright? That’s what I’ve been trying to say. But, um, realistically… what can we do? If laura finds a lawyer to take heather’s case and a judge to reopen it? How are we gonna fight the whole justice system? Excuse me? Dr. Robinson? Yes. I need you to sign this patient’s outtake form. Oh. Just give me one second. You know what? Uh, I gotta go. And we’ll talk tonight. Yeah, you better believe it.

[ Sighs ] No. No, no, no. This — this isn’t right. Who ordered this? Since when does the fbi supervise prisoner transfers? Only when the prisoner was the head of the wsb and arrested for violations of the national security act. And I haven’t overlooked your involvement with pikeman or how you funneled money between pikeman and the bureau. You’re no garden-variety criminal, brennan. You’re a trained intelligence agent. You are dangerous by definition. You should be insulted if i didn’t show up to take you back to the pen. You know, it’s not unusual for the feds to feel inferior to the wsb. Don’t play into it. Dr. Robinson. Say goodbye to your patient. He’s leaving immediately. Agent cates, I hate to disappoint you, but this patient isn’t going anywhere. Uh, it’s been a while since you stopped by. Yeah. Yeah. I’m not gonna stay long. I just wanted to let you know that I reached an agreement with dex. I’m done with him. He’s free to do whatever he wants to do. He wants to be a cop. Doesn’t matter to me. I’m not gonna get in his way. That sounds like the right call. I want to make the same deal with you. How would that work? I want you to go work for the fbi, whatever it is that you’re doing. I don’t want to have anything more to do with you.

Finn was very apologetic and embarrassed for what happened, both for the drinking and just his behavior. He said that he was — he was in shock after finding your dad… but that talking to you really helped. Finn came home from dropping violet off from school, expecting to see my dad up and waiting for him. Instead, he found him dead. Finn is the one who had to call 911, who had to sign the paperwork, who had to watch our father — watch his body be taken away. If that bourbon wasn’t in the apartment, there is no way that he would have gone out to find a drink of alcohol. Chase, you don’t have to defend your brother. I understand the sequence of events. What I didn’t understand is his reaction to me. He was argumentative and angry with me for suggesting he go to a meeting, which he refused. And I know finn feels terrible about that. Violet was in the house. I feel terrible about that. I get it. Finn made bad choices, and he knows it. Look. We’re all pretty raw right now. I know I’m not at my best. All I’m saying is my brother screwed up. Nobody’s questioning that. But don’t you think, that given the situation, he merits a little understanding? Alright. Look. The first time I had heard that anything had happened is when jason called me to tell me that sonny went after dex and kristina witnessed it. Now, then jason asked me to come to the metro court for sonny. I never saw kristina, but I do know that sonny tracked her down first. Do you know what happened? I-I know that sonny was upset. He didn’t go into detail, but from what I understand, when jason was pulling sonny off of dex, they realized kristina saw the whole thing. She ran off. Sonny took off after her. He found her in a ladies’ room right off the ballroom, and he tried to explain to her what had happened, but kristina was really upset. He said she was hysterical and that she was afraid of him.

[ Scoffs ] Can you blame her? No. No. And I — I think that kristina was scared of sonny because she saw him act in a way that she had never seen before. I mean, kristina grew up hearing whispers about sonny being a mobster. I mean, I’m sure you heard it, too. Absolutely. And I just think that kristina told herself that, in sonny’s case, being a mobster in this day and age, it’s just somebody with some shady business practices. So witnessing the attack and then hearing sonny threaten to kill jason and dex… I mean, I’m sure that was devastating for kristina. Yeah. For the first time, she realized what they all mean by “mobster.” Sonny, we had this conversation months ago. My position hasn’t changed. Coffee business is half mine, and I’m not leaving. The offer to buy you out still stands. What’s your price? I’m not — I’m not selling. Did the fbi order you to stay here so you can keep tabs on me? I’m not selling because this is our business. We founded this company together as equal partners. The partnership was based on trust. That trust has been broken. You broke it. So I’m offering you a way out. If you’re smart, you’ll take it. I’m not staying for me. I’m staying for you. With all due respect, dr. Robinson, this man’s a security risk. He’s handcuffed to the bed, and he’s guarded around the clock. Look, I don’t have to like the patients that find themselves in this hospital, but I do have to provide them with the absolute best medical care possible. And his surgeon hasn’t cleared him to be released. I don’t think you realize who this man is. He’s a former intelligence agent, a national security risk, and well-trained in the art of disinformation, making things look like what they’re not. You’re playing right into his hands. You think this is a game for me? ‘Cause I’m certainly not playing it. Mr. Brennan was wounded severely and was bleeding excessively, and it required surgery. And he will not leave this bed until his surgeon says that he is okay to be released. Now, I’m not sending him back to prison so his wound can open up and he can bleed out. My decision stands. This patient stays right here. You were saying, agent cates? Donald. I have a favor to ask. Jordan ashford would like to come down and talk to you about a confidentiality concern that we have. Thank you. Yes. She’ll be down later this afternoon. Thanks. Bye-bye. Okay. Donald rollins — waiting for you in the records room. Here you go. Okay. Mm-hmm. I’ll check it out. I know you warned me that this might happen. And… I just want to say thank you for not saying “I told you so.” Well, I didn’t expect it to happen this fast, but I really think you should get ahead of the story — now. Issue a statement saying you have no intentions of reopening heather webber’s case and of trying to mitigate her sentence. I don’t want to paint myself into a corner, making a promise that I might not be able to keep. Yeah, but you don’t advocate for freeing heather, correct? Correct. Then draft a statement saying that.

[ Knock on door ] Come in! Hi, laura. Hi, curtis. What can I do for you? You mind if we talk for a minute?

Jordan. I am sorry ifI’m interrupting your meeting. Oh. No worries. We were just wrapping up. Curtis. You look wonderful. It’s so good to see you up and about. Thank you. Feels good to be up and about. Yeah. Well, um… I’ll get going on that project we were just discussing. I’ll be in touch. Yeah. Good to see you, curtis. Likewise. Okay. I think I might know why you’re here. Laura, a few months ago, around the time of heather’s initial diagnosis, portia was worried that you were looking into — into heather’s diagnosis, her case being reopened. I didn’t pay it too much concern at first because I didn’t think you would do that. Fast-forward to today, and I read an article in the invader that says just that. Please sit down. That article should never have gone to print. I agree… if it’s a lie. But I don’t hear you saying that it is. The headline is a lie. I am not looking to get heather freed. So you’re not examining the legal ramifications of her medical diagnosis? I am exploring whether or not there are any legal ramifications. And since I’m not a lawyer, I need to consult one. In order to do that, I needed to request copies of heather’s records from the time of her arrest through her sentencing. Curtis… I can’t predict how a judge will decide. I can’T. But I can tell you it’s my personal feeling that in light of heather’s recent diagnosis, she deserves to have her case reopened. You know, um, we are family. And I’ve seen the relationship between kristina and her father. She is truly a daddy’s girl. Yeah. And sonny loves her so much. But she was going to have to see sonny more realistically at some point. I’m sorry that it happened now. Yeah. I’m still trying t o figure outhow I feel about it all. I bet you are. What are you gonna do about it? Nothing. I think. Just gonna sit on it. I mean, I can’t tell tj. He would just go straight to kristina and confront her, which would only make things worse. So I will just sit on pins and needles and send up a silent prayer, hoping that kristina will be alright, that she will do the right thing — for herself and this baby. Everything else is out of my control. Wow. You already sound like a mom. You do! I mean, all those feelings you’re talking about. They’re always gonna be there. I don’t mean to scare you, but you’re gonna be afraid and you’re gonna be worried. That’s never gonna go away. And you’re gonna constantly be sending up those silent prayers, praying that your kids are happy and healthy, all the while knowing that it’s all out of your control. Kristina’s made of good stuff. I have a feeling that she and the baby… they’re gonna be just fine. Thank you, carly. I really appreciate you being honest with me. Okay.

[ Both chuckle ] I have to stay because corinthos coffee is your only legitimate business. It’s your only shield left against rico charges. Is that what your handlers told you to say just in case I try to push you out? Who do you think has been running the business while you were doing whatever you were doing? You pay no attention to this place. It was barely operational when I came back. I increased the inventory. I added some staff. I’m trying to build this business back up. Because it’s the best cover that you have. You’re not protecting me. You’re spying on me. I want you out of my business. Out of my life. I am your friend. I’m your friend for as long as I can remember. And I’m telling you right now… …you are in real trouble.

I know finn feels bad about his behavior, and I am sympathetic to what your family is going through. Maybe it’ll get easier. Or things will make more sense once the memorial is over. I keep telling myself that finn and i will start to feel closure. I hope you both find that. My dad wanted his ashes scattered. We’re planning a small gathering of those closest to him — just friends and family. I’d love it if you were there. Finn already told me. And of course I’ll be there. It’s been 20 minutes. Your copies should be ready. I’ll go get them. Oh, no, no, no. I’ve imposed enough. I can bypass the line. I’ll be right back. As the good doctor pointed out, I’m still recovering from surgery. I tire easily. Care to clear out and give me some rest? Since I can’t take you back to pentonville… …I’m just gonna have to question you here. Oh, you can ask all the questions you like. I have nothing more to say to you without my lawyers present, and they are

very busy people. Maybe it’s time for new lawyers. I mean, it isn’t it curious that you spend months behind bars without your case being brought to trial? What are you paying these people for? What’s the holdup? You’d have to ask the justice department. I have. It seems your lawyers are very busy asking for postponements, and their justifications are flimsy at best.

[ Chuckles ] Almost as if they’ve been given a directive to stall. You better watch that legal bill. It’s gonna be a doozy. Yeah, I-I told them to take their time because I wanted the full pentonville experience. My stay just wouldn’t be complete until I’ve been stabbed in the showers. Yeah, maybe I’ll tell them I’m ready for them to move things along now. Or maybe you’re waiting for something else to happen. Maybe you don’t want to leave… until the time is right. -Hey. -Hi. Thanks for stopping by. Couldn’t get away. Yeah. Here’s your phone. And yours. I promise. I will get a different-colored case. Bound to happen eventually. I’m just glad I wasn’t on call. Yeah, you didn’t miss anything important. Your gym membership is about to expire. Oh. I get many calls? Not really. I, uh… kind of expected to see some calls from kristina, but nothing. No. Yeah. I-I saw her at my mom’S. She okay? If you mean kristina, she seemed fine. If you mean my mom, she’s pretty sure she’s gonna lose her case. But she’s not that worried about it right now. I think, um, gregory chase’s death really put things in perspective for her. I, uh, called your office a little while ago. They said you were out? Yeah, I-I’ve been on the go. I just was, um… wrapping up a meeting at the metro court when you called, and I came straight here. So the paper was right. You do want to set heather free. No. I don’T. I am advocating to have her case reopened, taking into consideration that she was suffering from an undiagnosed illness at the time she committed those crimes. Even if it results in a lesser sentence?

[ Sighs ] Curtis… I-I know how upset you are about this, but really, at this point, this is all just speculation, okay? All I’ve done is ask for some records. There’s — no action has been taken yet. “Yet.” If I decide to go forward with anything, I will let you know first, okay? Trina’s family does deserve the truth. We deserve justice. I do understand that sentiment. Laura, it’s not just a sentiment! Imagine if it was your child that watched their friends and their mentors being stalked, attacked, and killed. Now imagine if it was your child who was the real target all along, that the killer was just waiting for an opportunity. Would you still be okay with “mitigating” the sentence, a-as the article put it? Or would you want that killer locked away in a super-max so they would never have the opportunity to hurt your child again? You attacked a police cadet at a wedding. You threatened to kill me and dex not 200 feet from your closest friends. And kristina saw the whole thing. She saw a side of you thatshe never even knew existed. Sonny, you’re making sloppy decisions. You’re not — you’re not thinking clearly. You’re not thinking things through. You have to rein it in. Please let me help you. I’m trying to be friendly. Just for the record… you’re turning me down. So I’m not gonna be friendly anymore. You don’t get out of my way… you’re done, you’re gone.

I can tell you this much. My lawyers aren’t stalling. They’re trying to make sense of the charges. Well, they’re pretty straightforward, actually. You’ve been charged with, among other things, criminal conspiracy and attempted murder. Just who did I try to kill? Carly spencer? Even she doesn’t believe that. Anna devane. And dante falconeri. When anna and the detective showed up — with their guns drawn, I might add — I wasn’t holding a weapon. I made no threatening moves whatsoever. Now, granted, there was a slight misunderstanding with ms. Spencer. I had neglected to tell her that I was the director of the wsb, and she mistakenly thought that she had to defend herself. Now, anna, on the other hand, she knew exactly what she was doing when she came through that door. That was a nice deflection.

[ Chuckles ] I was talking about the hit you put out on anna and dante at the pier. But let’s talk about anna’s involvement in your takedown. Very convenient, wasn’t it? Well, that’s not how I felt when she had a gun trained on me at point-blank range. And I happen to know from prior experience she’s an expert shot. Now, if this lackluster interrogation is over, I’m getting very tired. You and commissioner devane were at the wsb together in the ’80s, weren’t you? You know we were. So, what are the odds that when you get busted your old friend crashes through the door at the perfect moment to take you down? I’ll catch up with kristina later. It just seemed strange that she’d go radio silent. She’s in her final trimester. The baby’s due in august. It just stands to reason that we would want to know how our baby’s doing. Maybe go with her to her next doctor’s appointment. I could check with dr. Navarro. I-I wouldn’T. You know how kristina feels about boundaries. Molly, I understand boundaries, but I also understand that we are the baby’s parents. Yes. So we — I am so sorry to interrupt. Molly, I really need to speak with you as soon as you have a free moment, okay? Oh. No, no. Yeah, I-I’m free now. What’s up? Tj, would you mind giving us a moment? I’ve got rounds. Uh… see you at home, moll. What can I do for you? Have you seen the invader today? No. Um, I’ve been pretty busy today. Why? Well, laura collins is attempting to free heather webber, and I’m extremely concerned. I would just like to knowhow the D.A.’S office would plan to fight this. I understand completely how you feel. You want to protect trina, and you have every right. What about everybody else’s rights? Brando corbin. Rory cabrera. Britt westbourne. Those young people had a right to live. Heather killed those people. What about the survivors? Ava jerome. Diane miller. Have you once asked them how they feel about you reopening heather’s case? Heather does not deny her crimes. Okay? I am having a hard time locking this woman away for the rest of her life when she may not have possessed the — the mental capacity to tell the difference between right and wrong. Those people are dead still either way. I know that! But metallosis could have been the deciding factor there! Now, I think that should go — I think it must go in the record. And if it alters her sentence? That’s for the court to decide. Okay. What i can tell you is that no motion has been filed that I’m aware of. There’s no hearing scheduled. Whatever’s in this article, it’s pure speculation. Would your mother maybe know more? I doubt it. She’s been out of town the last few days, and she only just got back. She’s probably going to be livid this got published without her. It’s full of holes. But if a motion is filed, how are you gonna fight it? Heather’s attorney is probably going to argue that heather is not guilty because she lacked the mens rea to commit the crime — there was no way for heather to be in control of her actions because the cobalt poisoning was controlling her behavior. Therefore, she is not responsible for what she did. And if she’s no longer responsible and no longer a danger to others — no, that woman

is a danger to others. And don’t give me this technicality about the diagnosis of cobalt poisoning. Really, allowing this woman to walk free? I mean, isn’t it the D.A. Office’s duty to see that justice is done and to ensure that this woman remains behind bars? You owe her victims that much.

[ Carly laughs ] Carly: Sonny. Sonny! Hey! What are you doing here? Where are you going? Uh, I have business to attend to. Okay. Well… have you talked to kristina? Not today. Today I’m dealing with jason.

Sorry. That took longer than I thought. Here are 10 copies. Thank you, elizabeth. I really appreciate you going through all the trouble. Just glad I could help. You okay? It’s just so official. So formal and real. This is all that’s left of my dad. No.

You are what’s left. You and finn and violet. He loved you guys. He’s always gonna be with you. I haven’t seen any motions to reopen heather’s case, but I feel confident that, should that happen, the D.A.’S office can successfully argue against any mitigation of her sentence. Look, I want to believe you, molly, but I can’t just sit here and relax and hope that you take it from here. I am gonna fight against any type of release because I’ve learned the hard way that when it comes to heather webber anything is possible. Laura, this whole thing reeks of what happened to heather’s daughter. Esme was never held accountable for her actions because of her supposed amnesia. My daughter, trina, didn’t press charges against the “new” esme because esme wasn’t aware of what the “old” esme had done. So look at what we have now. What if some legal loophole puts heather back on the street? Do you want to open the door to that possibility? It is up to the court to decide.

[ Scoffs ] I still think it’s the fair thing to do. Life is not fair, laura! Certainly wasn’t fair to those young people who were murdered by a poisoned hook. Now, you know… you know I respect you and I consider you a good friend. But you’re wrong on this one. You’re wrong. And you’re leaving portia and me no choice but to fight you on it. And we will. You can trust and believe we will with everything we got.

[ Door closes ] I’m not sure I understand. Why are you bringing my prior relationship with anna into this? Maybe you and anna planned that bust. That’s interesting. Why? Maybe you were too conspicuous as the head of both pikeman and the wsb. But I’m not head of pikeman. Maybe that bust was a hand-off of power from you to anna. What’s her role in pikeman, anyhow? Oh, you’ll have to ask anna about that. Don’t worry. I will. Heal fast. He’s all yours. You were dealing with jason? What’s going on? Did you guys talk? I offered to buy him out of the coffee business, gave him a chance to walk away. He refused. So… what happens next is on him.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

[ Knock on door ]

[ Knocking continues ]

Tucker: Audra? If you’re in there, please open up.

[ Audra sighs ]

Audra: What the hell are you doing here, tucker?

Tucker: I could ask you the same question, couldn’t I?

Alan: Thank you.

[ Alan exhales ]

Traci: Ashley, you okay?

Ashley: Yeah, it just feels strange to be back.

Traci: Strange how?

Ashley: I didn’t know what to expect. I wasn’t sure if maybe one of my other personalities was here and did something to the apartment, but it does seem to be pretty much the same way as it was when I left it. Then again, I guess something could’ve happened and I just don’t have access to it, right?

Alan: Well, that’s what we’re here to find out. But just take our time, okay?

Traci: Look, it was a really long flight and I bet you spent most of it worrying. You must be exhausted.

Ashley: Yeah, I think I’ll go freshen up.

Alan: That’s a good idea.

Traci: Well, I– I think it’s going okay. Do you? I mean, she seems a little nervous, but that’s understandable in the circumstances.

Alan: Yeah, of course, she’d be on edge coming here, not knowing what to expect, but hopefully being in her own apartment will bring her some comfort and make it safe enough for her to unravel what happened.

Traci: It must be just terrifying to realize that you’ve got alternate personalities vying for control.

Alan: Yeah, and that’s clearly a shock she’s still processing.

Traci: But this is our ashley with us. I’m– I’m convinced that this is my sister here with us.

Alan: No, I agree. I saw no sign of any of the other personalities coming out.

Traci: So, what is your game plan? I mean, now that we’re all here, what do we do?

Ashley: We need to get out of here and fast before it’s too late.

Claire: It’s hard to decide. I’m starting a new job today and I want to take some treats to make a good impression. It’s for a kid, so you can’t go wrong with brownies, right? I’ll take three. Actually, sorry, hold on. He can’t eat those for breakfast. Maybe muffins? Um, no, muffins would be a huge disappointment. Brownies it is. He can have them after lunch.

Kyle: No, that’s it, buddy. Oh, straighten up a little bit. Just watch where you’re going. Oh, look at that boy riding a bike. He picked it up pretty quickly.

Summer: Maybe a little too quick– harrison, be careful.

Kyle: Well, today’s a big day for all of us.

Summer: Yeah, it’s a little nerve-wracking. At least it is for me.

Kyle: I’m really proud of you, summer.

Summer: I don’t need you to be proud of me, kyle. I need you to be right about claire.

Harrison: Mommy, daddy, look at me. I’m going fast.

Summer: Okay, maybe a little too fast, sweetie. Can you slow down?

Kyle: Good job, buddy. Okay, it’s time to come in and wash up for breakfast, okay?

Summer: Put your bike in the garage first.

Jack: Turns out that grandson of ours has some skills. He picked up that bicycle riding thing without a hitch.

Diane: Hmm. He amazes me every day. He can do anything he sets his mind to.

Jack: I think he got that from you.

Diane: Oh, I don’t know. There are some things I can’t do.

Jack: Like forgive me? Look, I know you’re still upset with me for agreeing to be nikki’s sponsor again, I–

Diane: That’s right, I am. And the more I think about it, the more upset I become.

Jack: Okay, well, we have to find a way past this. Could we at least talk about it some?

Diane: What more is there to say, jack? You know how I feel.

Jack: Yes, I know.

Diane: No! I’ve made a decision. I can’t take this anymore. I’m done. Ok, someone just did laundry…

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Jack: Wait, you say that like you’re done with us. Surely, you can’t mean that.

Diane: It does seem impossible, doesn’t it? After everything we’ve been through to end up in this sad place. You know, my– my return with your doubts and suspicions and then falling in love again so completely that we didn’t care what anyone else thought.

Jack: Yes, the kind of love that doesn’t just disappear.

Diane: No, it doesn’T. And that’s why this breaks my heart, but maybe this is what it has to come to.

Jack: All because I agreed to be nikki’s sponsor?

Diane: No, no, jack, it’s more than that. It’s that you don’t seem to care about my feelings in any of this.

Jack: You have always been supportive of my helping her.

Diane: Outwardly, yes. I have tried to understand why this is so important to you, but honestly, it’s been tearing me up inside and I just– I can’t do it anymore.

Jack: Wait, wait, wait. Can’t– can’t do what?

Diane: Oh, come on. Pretend that it doesn’t bother me when you run out at the drop of a hat just because nikki calls. I mean, you have made your priorities very clear over and over again.

Jack: You, our marriage, our family is my priority. Nikki’s going through a rough time.

Diane: Oh, god.

Jack: She’s depending on me and I think I can help her.

Diane: Really? Like you helped her last time when you almost od’d trying to help her?

Jack: No, I realize I went too far. I have promised you that’s not going to happen again.

Diane: Well, I don’t think that’s a promise you can keep, especially since you have agreed to be her sponsor again.

Jack: When I commit to doing something, you can count on me. You know that.

Diane: Jack, you made a decision in that moment to put nikki above everything, including your own life. And– and that kind of instinct comes from deep inside you and it’s not something that can be promised away.

Jack: What can I say to make you believe me? I swear nothing like that will ever happen again.

Diane: You swore that you wouldn’t be tempted to use the first time you agreed to be nikki’s sponsor and you did.

Jack: That was different. This wasn’t out of temptation or craving.

Diane: It doesn’t matter why you did it, jack. You used. And how do you know you’re not going to do it again?

Jack: Because I know myself.

Diane: Oh, really? Do you? You told me before that an addict will use any excuse to use. What if on some deeper level, watching nikki give into her addiction made you want to give into yours? To feel that high again?

Audra: What are you doing here?

Tucker: You should check your email ’cause I just sent you some legal documents. It’s a– an order to cease and desist on any and all glissade interactions.

Audra: Look, I’m sorry, tucker, but you don’t get to decide who I can and can’t speak to. And I don’t care what your legal papers say.

Tucker: What makes you think that you can meet on your own with the heads of the companies I acquired for my company.

Audra: What I do and who I choose to do it with is my business.

Tucker: Yeah, and glissade is mine. You think you can just waltz in here and rip it out from under me?

Audra: Sorry, tucker, but i don’t owe you any explanations. What I’m doing in paris is my business. Now, you can just leave and get the hell out of my room. Go back to genoa city to the people you claim to care so much about.

Ashley: Don’t listen to another word they’re saying. Get out of here now while you still can.

Alan: I wish I could say I had a specific plan, but I think we’re gonna have to take our cues from ashley.

Traci: Okay, what signs are you looking for?

Alan: Well, uh, mainly her memories coming back. Uh, whatever the traumatic event was, likely happened after her fight with tucker. So once we identify that, we can get at the root of what caused her to split her off into these different personalities.

Traci: Oh, this is just unnerving. The risk to her, that she has to remember something so that she can deal with it, and that means facing something terribly painful. I hate that for her.

Alan: I know, it’s– it’s a delicate process. It all hinges on whether or not ashley can suppress her alters.

Traci: Wait, you– you mean you think they could take control again?

Alan: It is a distinct possibility, and we should proceed accordingly.

Traci: Well, alan, I– I had thought that once she understood what was happening to her, that our ashley could have the strength to resist.

Alan: I wish it were that simple, but it looks like ashley’s alters have a– well a fairly firm grip on her psyche.

Ashley: Oh, honey, what are you doing? You shouldn’t be here. Why don’t you let me handle this? Don’t be afraid. Just let go. I have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.

Jack: I can’t believe you would think that. The last thing I wanted was to join nikki in her wasted state of damn near incoherence. I can’t believe you think any part of that would appeal to me.

Diane: But you did it, jack. Whether it appealed to you or not. You risked your life, and I can’t live with that uncertainty again. Worrying every day that if nikki slips, you might too.

Jack: What do I have to say? What do I have to do to get you to believe me? Tell me, I’ll do it.

Diane: How about not being her sponsor again? I mean, what– what am i supposed to do? Am I supposed to be the silently supportive wife left to wonder every time you run to nikki’s side whether or not you’ll even come home or take pills or worse?

Jack: I wish you would just believe in me.

Diane: Oh no, that’s not fair, jack. Don’t you dare make this about my lack of trust or faith in you. You broke that. And now I have to live in fear every day that kyle will end up without a father or harrison without a grandfather or– or me without the love that i waited so long to have.

Jack: I waited a long time for that love too. I am not going to do anything to jeopardize our future together.

Diane: Well, I don’t know about that. And while I can’t stop you from helping nikki, I can’t be here to see how far you might be willing to go to be that help.

Jack: Okay, I hear you. Clearly you’re very serious or you wouldn’t be talking about walking away from what we have. But what do we do now?

Diane: I’m going to give you some time to think about this. To let it all sink in.

Jack: Diane!

Tucker: How did we end up here, audra?

Audra: You know exactly how. You followed me to paris, tracked me down, then barged in here uninvited.

Tucker: That’s not what I mean and you know it. We were on top of the world. We were genuinely happy. At least I was. I… I was ready to commit my entire life to you. With or without the ring. With or without the vows. I still am. Why? Why are you doing this?

Audra: You can be so smart about some things, but so utterly oblivious about others. You chose everyone else over me. You changed your plans because of ashley and then you changed them because of devon. Look, I was never the most important one to you. You say that you love me, but you couldn’t put me at the forefront of your life. Not once. And I was a fool to believe in your promises. That as soon as you helped ashley or as soon as you got back into devon’s good graces, then I’d be the center of your world. I fell for the oldest lie in the book. That I could change you. That my love would change you, but you will never change. And I’ll never let myself believe you again.

Ashley: Get out of here now, ashley. Let me help you, honey. Let me out. No, I will not.

Alan: Well, I better head back to my apartment, drop off my bags, i’ll take a quick shower, but I will be back soon, okay?

Traci: Okay, alan, what should I do while you’re gone? I mean, what can I do to keep my sister safe?

Alan: Just do whatever you can to keep her focused and engaged.

Ashley: Hey, do you guys want some coffee?

Alan: Oh, no, thanks. I gotta go back to my apartment, but I’ll be back soon. Give you time to get settled, okay?

Ashley: Thank you so much.

Alan: Of course.

Ashely: For everything you’re doing, I’m so grateful.

Alan: Ah, of course, hon, of course. I’ll be back soon.

Traci: Ashley, you must be just exhausted. If you’re tired and you need to sleep–

Ashley: I can’T.

Traci: I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to push you.

Ashley: No, it’s not that. I’m just afraid. I’m afraid to go to sleep.

Traci: What are you afraid of?

Ashley: I can feel them around me, tracy. I can hear them. They’re in my head right now. I can hear them. They– they want to take charge. I’m sorry. They’re looking for a chance, and I just– I have to stay awake.

Traci: Okay, I– I know that you’re frightened, but listen to me, we’re on the right path. We are on track to finding out what’s going on with you, and we are going to find solutions. We are. Once and for all.

Ashley: I believe that, but I can’t let my guard down. I know that they’re trying to protect me from something, but I can’t let them. I can’t let them take over. Not right now.

Disco music

Summer: Today’s a big day, isn’t it?

Harrison: Uh-huh. Claire is coming.

Summer: That’s right. She is gonna hang out with you while mommy and daddy are at work, and you are gonna be just fine.

Harrison: We’re gonna have a lot of fun.

Summer: I’m sure you are. Harrison, you know that I love you more than anything in this world, right? And I am going to be thinking about you all day long, and I’m gonna be imagining all the fun that you’re having. But listen, if you get sad or upset, or even if you just miss me or your daddy, just have claire call us, okay? Anytime. Or you can call us yourself. You remember how to do that, right? You just pick up the phone, you press one, and it’s all set for you to call us anytime, okay?

Harrison: I know.

Kyle: You know what? I have a feeling today is going to be a really good day for all of us.

[ Knock on door ]

Harrison: Claire, you’re here!

Claire: Hey.

Tucker: Are you really gonna throw away what we have because I want to help my son. That’S… what kind of a person just walks away from his family?

Audra: Wait, isn’t that what you wanted ashley to do? Wasn’t that what your big blow-up was about? You were willing to walk away because she wouldn’t sever her relationship with her family. Sounds like you’re getting a bit of karmic payback.

Tucker: You’re using ashley as your defense?

Audra: I’m just pointing out your hypocrisy.

Tucker: One situation has absolutely nothing to do with the other.

Audra: You know, you’re absolutely right. They are very different. Ashley’s family actually cares about her. She would’ve lost a lot if she’d given them up for you. You, on the other hand… your son doesn’t give a damn about you. He has no use for you and probably has no intention of ever giving you a second or tenth chance.

Tucker: Well, you know that things are complicated between him and me and hell, you’ve been around for my efforts to–

Audra: All of which have failed.

Tucker: I see, so I should just– just give up? Devon, dominic’s nice knowing you, but forget it.

Audra: I never said to forget your son and grandson. I simply asked you to follow through on the plans you made with me. You’re the one who set up this either-or scenario. Okay, either I accept your priorities or our business and personal partnership is over.

Tucker: It was never, ever either-or. It was always you, end. There was never a scenario where there was no you, audra. Never.

Audra: I am tired of this argument. And I don’t need to justify my decision to you. Look, my eyes have finally been opened. You will never make me a priority, so I’m done. Now, please get out and leave me alone.

Tucker: So that’s it. Really? It’s over? Stay away from glissade.

Ashley: Thank you.

Traci: Mm-hmm. Ashley, I think I might understand how scared you must be.

Ashley: I don’t think you do. I don’t think anybody can, really. I mean, you know, I just kind of wake up and I realize that I’ve been doing things and saying things that I have absolutely no memory of. It’s like I have no control over my own being, and that’s so frightening. I mean, I just wouldn’t wish it on anybody.

Traci: I’m so sorry. I didn’t mean to diminish the severity of what you’re going through.

Ashley: No, I know. I didn’t mean it that way. I guess I’m just trying to explain it to you as much as I’m trying to explain it to myself. You know? I, like, don’t understand. Why would I reconnect with tucker? What would motivate that?

Traci: Okay, you know, I think we should wait for alan for this. I mean, he’s the one that’s trained and prepared to walk you through it.

Ashley: But I don’t understand. If they’re trying to protect me, then why would I drag tucker back into this?

Traci: I don’t know. Maybe they think tucker could protect you somehow?

Ashley: Does that make any sense to you? I have family for that. I’ve got friends for that.

Traci: You do. And we’re people who love you and want only the best for you.

Ashley: Thank you. I guess I should wait, right? Wait for alan before I try digging into my psyche.

Traci: Yeah, but for now, I mean, tell me. Is there anything you want? Anything you need? What can I do?

Ashley: There is one thing.

Traci: Name it.

Ashley: Could you just keep an eye on me? I mean, could you just watch me and just… I don’t know. Make sure if I do anything out of character or something. Just make sure I’m me. I would’ve called yesterday.

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue…

Jack: Diane? Diane, hold up. I can’t let you walk away like this. We have to talk this through.

Diane: There’s nothing more to talk about. How many times do I have to explain how I feel?

Jack: As many times as it takes to work this out. Look, I hate that I worried you so much that night. That’s why this will never happen again.

Diane: Yeah, you say that, jack. But you clearly don’t get what I went through all night when you didn’t come home. You know, I had no idea what could’ve happened to you and all the horrible scenarios that went through my head. A– a– an accident, a mugging, a heart attack.

Jack: None of those things happened. I am fine. I am healthy. I’m here. And I am determined to build our life together.

Diane: You deliberately put yourself in harm’s way without thinking about how it would affect me. Without thinking about how much I need you. How much your family needs you. How am I supposed to live with that?

Jack: I don’t know. I will apologize a million times over. I will swear on everything i hold dear that I will never do this to you again.

Diane: All right, just stop. It’s not enough because I have seen how far you’ll go for nikki and how far you’re not willing to go for me. I mean, what if the situation with her gets bad again? What’s to stop you from doing something just as dangerous? I’m sorry. I’m sorry if it seems unfair. But I have to end things now. I don’t have another choice.

[ Cell phone buzzes ]

Jack: This is not fair. Nikki needs help. She still needs help. This is not the way to handle this.

Diane: Nikki needs help? What about us, jack? Our marriage needs help.

Jack: They are two completely different situations and I will tell you walking out on me is not the way to help our marriage.

Diane: You know what? Don’t tell me how to handle this. Leaving is a decision that I have to make for myself. I am the only one who gets to decide what i can live with and what I can’T.

Summer: It would be great if you could limit harrison’s junk food intake in between meals. We’ve got plenty of healthy snacks in the fridge for him. And it– it was nice of you to bring brownies but those will definitely need to wait until after lunch.

Claire: Yeah, of course. I completely understand and will follow all of your rules. I understand the importance of boundaries for all of us.

Summer: Um, and I don’t want you leaving the property for now.

Harrison: No? No ducks today? They might be hungry.

Kyle: I’m sure they’ll survive. At least until claire gets a booster seat for you.

Claire: Oh, I’ve actually been doing some research about that for the safest brand and i wanted to ask you if you had a preference.

Kyle: Proactive thinking. I’m impressed.

Summer: Ah, I appreciate that, claire but I will be picking out the booster seat.

Harrison: Will claire be here all day? How much time do we have? Because I’ve got a list of stuff to do.

Claire: I am so glad to hear that and I have a list too but we don’t have to cram it all in today. We might get a chance to hang out again soon.

Traci: Ashley, I am here for you and I am going to do everything in my power to make sure that my sister, who I love so much, stays present and safe and in control.

Ashley: Thank you. I couldn’t do this without you. I have so many questions.

Traci: Ah, we both do and i wish I had answers for us but ashley, we’re gonna get some soon.

Ashley: You think so? Because I heard– I heard alan talking about his plan or lack of a plan. I mean, I get the dilemma, right? He’s counting on me to guide us but I mean, I– it’s like a dead zone. It– there’s–

Traci: Okay, alan has gotten us this far and I have to believe he’s gonna find a way to break through.

Ashley: I hope so because I’m just putting all my faith in him but the problem is he’s counting on me.

Tucker: Oh, excuse me. Hey, alan. How’s it going? Where’S… when my doctor gave me breztri for my copd

Alan: How you doing, ashley? Did you get some, uh, rest?

Traci: Oh, no, she’s so full of caffeine. She couldn’t possibly sleep.

Ashley: Yeah, I was afraid to. I didn’t want one of the other personalities to get a foothold.

Alan: Well, that’s understandable but exhaustion can bring them out as well.

Ashley: So what are you telling me? No matter what I do, they’re gonna take over?

Alan: No, of course not. I’m just saying I– I want you to go easy on yourself. Don’t put so much pressure on yourself, okay?

Ashley: I wanna do this now.

Traci: She’s been so eager to jump right in, you know, piece together everything that’s happened to her but we decided that we’d wait for you to return before we got started.

Ashley: But I do wanna do this now.

Alan: Okay. Coffee and talk is what we’ll do. We’ll, uh, we’ll piece this all together, okay?

Ashley: Okay. So what exactly are you hoping for? I mean, I know you want me to remember things but how am i supposed to do that?

Alan: Well, I want us to try to revive memories of what happened after your fight with tucker and before you came home. I think it’s in that window of time that something happened to you, traumatic enough to, uh, bring out those protective alters.

Traci: So ashley, can you think of what that might be?

Ashley: Ah, listen, I’ve been trying. I’ve been wracking my brain. I’ve just got nothing.

Alan: Well, even if you can’t remember exactly what happened, do you have any idea of maybe where you went or what you did or… well, what did you and tucker do before the bistro?

Ashley: Uh, I’m not sure about that exactly but I do know that I’d been up the whole night before. I’d been really wrestling with the, uh, the thought of having to just walk away from my family and give up jabot and I– I knew I had to talk to tucker about it. I knew it was gonna be, you know, difficult. So I was apprehensive but I was hopeful but obviously the whole thing unraveled.

Alan: Okay. Well, do you remember maybe what happened after then, um? Did you go somewhere to clear your mind or something? Have coffee or get a drink or… just, you know, try to close your eyes and retrace your steps ’cause any little detail could, uh, trigger a really important memory.

Ashley: Okay, that scares me when you say that. When you tell me that I have to retrace my steps, it’s very frightening for me.

Alan: That could be because your subconscious doesn’t want you to face what happened. Your mind’s been blocking this out. And that’s why it’s so important that we do this.

In unison: One, two, three, four. I declare a thumb war.

Harrison: Yeah!

Claire: Ah, you got me!

Kyle: Okay, you two. Mom and I are leaving now.

Summer: But because it’s your first day, we’re not gonna be gone too long.

Claire: No problem. Harrison and I will be just fine.

Summer: You know what? Maybe I should just work from here actually. Out of the way, in the office or the den or something so I’m– I’m nearby just in case.

Kyle: Summer, I’m sure they’ll be fine. We just love you so much. We hate to leave. We like having fun with you and hanging out but we have to go to work. Now, we’re all gonna be brave today, right?

Harrison: Mommy, don’t worry. Claire’s going to take good care of me. We’re gonna have a lot of fun. Right, claire?

Claire: You bet.

Kyle: Okay.

Summer: Bye, sweetie. I love you. Have a good day, okay?

Kyle: See you later, buddy. All right.

Harrison: Come on, claire. Wait till you see where the caterpillars hang out.

Claire: What? Let’s go!

Kyle: Let’s go.

Jack: Keeping nikki sober is the only thing I am trying to do here.

Diane: You act like I’m being selfish. I’d like to see nikki sober too. But this is not an either-or situation. You are not the only option for her, jack. Even victor thought you were a terrible choice to be nikki’s sponsor.

Jack: Well, now we’re going to quote victor? His opinion doesn’t hold any weight with me.

Diane: Well, neither does mine.

Jack: No, that is not true and you know it. This is– this is about a recovery support group and what they do. They support each other. That’s all that’s happening here. Nikki and I have a rapport. We have a trust that she’s not gonna find with anybody else. And to ask her to start all over with a new sponsor right now of all times is just– it’s cruel.

Diane: So you think I’m being cruel?

Jack: No, I’m not saying that you’re cruel. I’m saying you don’t understand why I am ideally suited to be her sponsor right now.

Diane: Jack, have you considered the possibility that nikki chose you because she knew that you’d go easier on her than some unknown sponsor? Let’s be honest, she certainly found a way to do a lot of drinking on your watch.

Jack: It’s a lot more complicated than that. The fact that she was drinking is why she needed a sponsor. If I hadn’t been there, it could’ve been a whole lot worse.

Diane: So she can find another sponsor. You could even help her. You could help her find someone more suited to her needs.

Jack: Well, you have really thought this through, haven’t you?

Diane: Yes! Okay, you– you have made a lot of decisions about this whole situation without me. And I’ve been playing catch-up from the very beginning. But right now, I am drawing a line in the sand.

Jack: And that’s it? Just like that, the line is drawn?

Diane: Just– jack, I am sorry if that’s not what you want to hear. But you have brought this on yourself. You’re the one making the choice. I love you. You know that. And this is breaking my heart. But right now, I need to walk away from you.

“The darkness of bipolar

depression made me feel like

Kyle: You know, we could’ve gotten coffee back at the house. Or we could get it from the break room at jabot.

Summer: Okay, maybe I needed to ease into this transition a little bit. Take a little breather. Before going right to work.

Kyle: Summer, harrison’s had a nanny before. You’ve left strict instructions for he and claire not to leave the property. And mrs. Martinez is there. What is there to be nervous about?

Summer: Really, kyle?

Kyle: I know, I know. It’s been a while since we left harrison with a caregiver.

Summer: And it’s the first time since the kidnapping. And his new nanny is that psycho’s niece. So yes, I– I have some nerves.

Kyle: And you’re handling it great. We’re setting an example for harrison. Trust and resilience are important values for him to learn. There’s nothing to worry about. It’s all good, don’t you think?

Summer: I hear you. I hear you. And I agreed to go along with this decision. I just hope that we never have any reason to regret it.

Kyle: We won’T. This might just be a good reset for us all.

Jack: I’m not gonna let you do this. I’m not gonna let you walk away. I refuse to lose you over this.

Diane: And I refuse to lose you to an overdose.

Jack: I can’t believe you would even consider giving up our marriage.

Diane: You think I want this? I just– I just don’t know what else to do.

Jack: I do. I’m not gonna let you walk away from us. Nikki will have to find herself another sponsor.

Diane: Ah, I’m sorry. I love you.

Alan: Well, let’s just stay with that night, okay? And remember, your memories are in the past and they cannot hurt you. I know– I know you’re afraid of bringing them up again, but just know you have support, okay? And we’re here with you.

Ashley: Okay, thank you. I’m safe, right? With the two of you and I’m safe and my memories can’t hurt me.

Alan: That’s right.

Ashley: Okay.

Alan: So that night, did you come back to your apartment here or did you stay at the hotel with tucker?

Ashley: I went for a walk. I called you and I asked you to meet me.

Alan: You called me? What day was this?

Ashley: Uh, I don’t remember the exact day.

Traci: It was the first week of september.

Ashley: No, I know that, but I don’t know the exact day. I mean, does it matter? I mean, we spoke, so don’t you remember the day?

Alan: Um, are you sure you called me?

Ashley: Yes. I remember it specifically because you told me you would meet me after your last session.

Alan: Ashley, I was in florence the first week of september.

Ashley: No, that can’t be. I know it was the same evening. I know it.

Alan: Well, I’m– I’m afraid that’s not possible.

Days Update Thursday, May 30, 2024

Days of Our Lives Update


Days of Our Lives logo

Update written by Joseph

Stefan goes to the Bistro and is surprised to see Theresa dining there. Stefan greets her and says it’s been awhile. Stefan asks if she has everything she needs. Theresa confirms she does and compliments the staff, noting that she is having a celebratory mocktail. Stefan asks what she is celebrating, so Theresa informs him that she has just moved in to the Kiriakis Mansion. Theresa talks about her and Alex practically having a whole wing to themselves after just leaving their cramped apartment a few days ago to having servants unpack for them.

Alex and Kristen lay in bed together after having sex. Kristen asks if he woke up this morning and came straight to her bed from Theresa’s. Alex asks if it would bother her if he said yes. Kristen says maybe. Alex asks if it would bother her less if he got her a present. Kristen says it might help. Alex then reveals he stopped by the jewelry store on his way over and presents her with a silver bracelet that she calls beautiful. Alex says he saw it the other day and it made him think of her, so he went back and bought it. Kristen says she loves it and wants to show him how much as they continue kissing in bed.

Ava wakes up in the motel on Montana as Harris is working on the computer. Ava notes that he’s up early and asks if something happened. Harris responds that they just got a major break on Clyde.

Marlena is in her office on the hospital, talking to Roman on the phone about how Eric is heartbroken since he loved Jude and loved being a father. Marlena is glad Roman is there for him since Eric needs him right now. Marlena says she’ll check in with him later and hangs up. Marlena sits at her desk and looks at a framed photo of Jude, calling it so heartbreaking.

At the DiMera Mansion, EJ watches over Jude in the living room as he talks about Jude adjusting to his new home and family. EJ mentions not using Jude’s name and declares that they are going to give him a new name once he and Nicole settle on something more suitable because Jude DiMera doesn’t work for him.

Alex and Kristen continue kissing in bed until Alex’s phone goes off. Alex bets it’s Maggie, wondering why the hell he’s not in the office. Kristen asks why he isn’t in the office. Alex asks if it’s not obvious. Kristen says as much as she enjoys lying in bed with him all morning, if EJ thinks Titan is vulnerable, he will surely take advantage since he’s always watching. Alex remarks that EJ can’t touch Titan as long as he’s in charge. Alex’s phone goes off again so he checks it and sees that he’s late for an appointment. Kristen tells him to go then. Alex felt they were just getting started but Kristen understands he has to get to work, so Alex kisses her and then gets out of bed.

Theresa comments on Stefan also being lucky to be a DiMera. Stefan asks what her point is. Theresa questions why he’d choose to run the Bistro. Stefan says he never leaves anything to chance and his inheritance has changed hands quite a few times. Theresa guesses that explains it. Stefan admits it has been a little slow at the Bistro. Theresa points out that it’s empty while Stefan argues that it’s early. Stefan adds that they did just lose their GM and Ava had a knack for making people feel at home while he’s just the money guy. Theresa notes that it sounds like he needs a new manager then with the people skills he was talking about. Stefan agrees that maybe he does.

Harris explains to Ava that he just heard from Andrew Donovan at the ISA and they cracked the code in Clyde’s book, finding a list of dealers and their numbers so they are forming a multi force agency to take them down which Ava calls fantastic. Harris says the best part is three of the dirtbags on the list are local, so one of those guys is going to lead him to Clyde.

Stefan and Theresa talk about job searches. Stefan says he used to have DiMera marketing take care of that. Theresa says she’s been job searching since leaving Bella. Stefan talks about being a people person and putting emphasis on social connections. Stefan asks if Theresa knows anybody perfect for this job at the Bistro.

Kristen and Alex go downstairs and in to the living room to greet EJ. EJ tells them that they have great timing as breakfast is in the kitchen and then introduces them to his son. Kristen questions that while Alex says he’s running late and has to go, so he exits. Kristen thought she heard a baby crying last night but figured she just imagined it. EJ confirms there was a lot of crying as he’s still getting used to his living arrangements. Kristen questions EJ saying this is his son. EJ asks her to sit down because it’s a long story.

Ava tells Harris that she’s not staying behind as she is the one who helped him track down Clyde so she did not come all this way to sit on her ass. Harris worries about tipping Clyde off. Ava insists that she’s not an amateur. Harris worries that with them, the police, and the FBI all following the same lead, Clyde could get tipped off and get out of town. Ava argues that he will be caught off guard so he’s bound to make some mistakes. Harris says that’s true that Clyde will be running scared and that’s when he will take him down. Harris leaves and then Lucas comes out of the bathroom, questioning when the last time the place was remodeled was but admits it beats the monastery. Lucas says he doesn’t understand what Harris was thinking, dragging him all the way out here to do nothing. Ava then claims that he didn’t as she just got a text from Harris about a new lead. Lucas asks what it is. Ava explains that apparently Goldman is supposed to go to the post office today to pick up a package, so Harris wants her and Lucas to go there and stake it out in case she shows up with Clyde. Lucas finds that odd since Harris was adamant about them staying behind. Ava says that was before he got this new information and Harris can’t be in two places at once. Ava tells Lucas to get dressed because they are up.

Theresa tells Stefan that no one comes to mind for the Bistro manager position but she thinks he could use a PR firm to get his reputation back on track and recommends Stephanie. Stefan reveals that he knows Stephanie as he and Ava had her doing PR before. Stefan says he needs someone on site and he doesn’t think Stephanie wants that. Theresa suggests he could still ask her. Stefan says he could do, but asks if Theresa had any part in the Brady family restaurant dynasty. Theresa states that the Bradys are her family and she has spent her fair share of time at the Pub, so she asks if that makes her part of the restaurant dynasty. Stefan claims it does, so Theresa asks why he’s asking. Stefan thinks the ad was written especially for her.

Alex goes to meet Marlena in her office and apologizes being late, crediting the office reminder text. Alex notes that he got slightly distracted. Marlena says distractions happen but points out that Alex cancelled his last three appointments. Alex swears that will never happen again and says that things have been hectic at Titan so it’s been hard to find the time. Marlena asks if there was something he wanted to talk about. Alex states that he did have something on his mind. Alex says when he originally came to her, it was to put his playboy days behind him which was when he was pursuing Stephanie which didn’t work out and he thought she was the one so he had a hard time getting over her. Alex adds that then Theresa came in to his life and they’ve been on and off ever since but right now they are pretty much on. Marlena mentions that Tate told her that they moved back in to the Kiriakis Mansion and they were back together. Alex says sort of as he and Theresa are living together, but reveals that he’s also seeing Kristen DiMera.

EJ explains to Kristen that Sloan paid off a doctor to tell he and Nicole that their son was dead and then she took the baby to adopt him. Kristen calls it pure evil to steal a child. EJ says that out of the blue, Sloan confessed the truth to Eric and vanished without a trace. Kristen asks how Nicole is taking it. EJ says Nicole is over the moon about the baby and would love to throttle Sloan. Kristen asks where Nicole is. EJ says she is resting upstairs since the baby had them up all night. EJ says Kristen can meet her new nephew as soon as he wakes up. Kristen says she looks forward to it, but she’s processing what he just told her and as horrible as Sloan is, she doesn’t get it. EJ argues that she knows the whole story. Kristen doesn’t think they do. Kristen knows miracles happen since she got Rachel back when she thought she had died, so the undead baby part is not what strains believability for her. EJ asks what she’s talking about then. Kristen questions thinking Sloan did this all by herself and that it sounds fishy to her.

Marlena questions Alex seeing Kristen and Theresa which he confirms. Alex admits that he really likes it that way and says variety is the spice of life. Alex didn’t expect her to approve. Marlena says she’s more curious how it all affects him. Marlena asks if Kristen and Theresa knows. Alex says Kristen knows and doesn’t care as he thinks for her is more about being close to someone physically. Marlena guesses he means the sex which Alex confirms. Alex says with Theresa, he thinks it’s mostly about the money. Alex says he’s a decently handsome guy, charming and good for a laugh but ultimately he thinks it’s because he’s rich. Marlena asks how that feels to him. Alex admits it’s not good for the ego since they all want someone to be in to them for who they are. Alex thinks now it’s about the money for a lot of women. Marlena asks if he’s done a survey. Alex says he’s speaking from personal experience and he has learned that women are throwing himself at him a lot more than usual since he became the heir to the Kiriakis fortune. Marlena asks why Alex asked Theresa to move in with him then. Alex states that it made sense since Theresa didn’t want to live alone in the apartment and she doesn’t have a job right now, so not having to pay rent is a big help. Marlena asks if asking her to move in is a level of commitment that he doesn’t really feel. Alex admits he didn’t really think about that but he doesn’t think Theresa is expecting anything. Marlena asks if he asked her or has any idea what she might be expecting. Alex guesses he doesn’t know for sure. Marlena feels he owes it to her to find out and to also let her know where he is. Alex guesses that he does.

Theresa asks if Stefan is seriously offering her a job. Stefan confirms that he is. Theresa thanks him and says he’s truly flattered and she would’ve totally taken it a week ago, but she’s in a relationship with Alex Kiriakis now. Stefan gets that she doesn’t need to work. Theresa says not now anyway. Stefan asks how she plans on passing her time. Theresa admits she hasn’t really thought about it since just moving in with Alex. Theresa thinks maybe she’ll learn to play piano or guitar or do volunteer work or travel. Theresa jokes that maybe being rich is really boring but she just wants to keep her time free for now. Theresa adds that she’ll let Stefan know if she thinks of anyone. Stefan thanks her and says he appreciates that.

Kristen asks if EJ doesn’t find it hard to believe that Sloan pulled this all off by herself, calling it a pretty complex scheme. EJ says he’s just telling her what Sloan told him and that the police are searching everywhere for her. EJ claims that he’s using all DiMera resources to track down that horrible woman and bring her to justice. Kristen asks if those are the same resources being used to track down Clyde Weston and asks how that’s going. Kristen asks if EJ is losing his magic touch. EJ tells her to shut up.

Ava and Lucas go out to the post office. Ava wears a hat and sunglasses while Lucas dresses in his monk robe from the monastery. Lucas feels it’s ridiculous and that they look conspicuous. Lucas jokes that a cowboy hat would have made him blend in instead of the stupid robe. Ava feels that it makes Lucas look non-threatening and they are going to have to ask people for help so people will be more likely to talk to a man of the cloth than a cowboy. Ava says she’s going in to the post office to see if the clerk knows anything about Clyde and Goldman. Lucas hopes someone has seen them. Ava instructs him to stay outside and keep an eye out for Goldman and text her if he sees anything. Ava adds that Goldman is probably armed and dangerous. Lucas assures he’s not looking to confront her since last time she almost shot him. Ava then heads in to the post office.

Harris tracks down a dealer in an alley and asks if he has an extra cigarette. He turns him down, pointing out how expensive they are. Harris identifies the man as “Snake”. He asks who the hell is asking.

Alex thanks Marlena for the help. Marlena wishes him luck and tells him to say hello to Maggie for her. Alex mentions that he and Maggie aren’t speaking too much these days and he doesn’t think she’s thrilled about him moving in. Marlena hopes they work things out. Alex jokes that stranger things have happened. Alex adds that it’s not just that he and Maggie aren’t getting along but Maggie being involved with Konstantin is just making things more awkward. Marlena understands how he feels. Alex doesn’t get why Maggie is letting Konstantin stay there and why she’s so devoted to him. Alex gets that Maggie is lonely but complains that everything Konstantin does exudes phoniness and every word is total BS. Marlena admits she can’t say she’s a fan. Alex thinks Maggie is Konstantin’s only fan. Marlena asks Alex to keep an eye on Maggie which he agrees to do. Alex tells Marlena that he’ll see her soon as he’d like to make an appointment for next week. Alex thanks her and then exits.

Kristen comments on the week EJ has had. EJ calls it eventful. Kristen points out that at least he got the baby back so that’s a happy thing. Kristen then tells EJ that she’s really sorry about his job. EJ admits that he was blindsided by Paulina’s decision but warns that she will soon regret making an enemy out of him. Kristen brings up hearing rumblings about a recall election and assumes that’s EJ’s handy work which he confirms. Kristen asks if EJ is thinking of becoming Mayor. EJ says you never know. Kristen questions thinking being Mayor and DiMera CEO won’t be as much of a conflict of interest as being district attorney was. EJ responds that it’s simple because the Mayor makes the rules and he loves making rules.

Rebecca Goldman runs in to Lucas outside the Post Office. They recognize each other and she reaches for her gun.

Marlena calls Roman to check in and asks how Eric seemed to him. Marlena says she’s glad Roman was there and bets that helped a lot. Marlena agrees that Eric will need his family more than ever now that he’s lost his son.

Stefan returns to the living room and sees that EJ is still there with Kristen. EJ asks where else he would be now that he longer has to be in his place of employment. Kristen talks about meeting their family’s new addition. Kristen tells EJ that she hopes his baby miracle takes some of the sting off of getting fired. EJ says it does and he feels blessed to have his son back where he belongs. Kristen suggests they let EJ have time to bond with the baby. EJ says that’s hard to do now that he’s sleeping. Kristen is sure he’ll wake up soon and it will give her and Stefan time to get some air, so they exit together.

Alex walks to the town square and runs in to Theresa, who questions where he was coming from since he was up and out early this morning. Alex mentions having a session with Marlena and asks how her breakfast was. Theresa says it was interesting. Alex says his was too since after speaking with Marlena, he realized some things and he needs to be upfront with everyone including her and Kristen. Theresa asks what about Kristen. Alex reveals that he’s been seeing Kristen which Theresa questions. Theresa thought that was over and just an act to make her and Brady jealous. Alex admits it was at the beginning. Theresa stops him and says not to explain it because she doesn’t need to hear it. Theresa asks Alex where that leaves them. Alex responds that he really does like living with her, but he needs her to understand that he’s not in a position to be pulling out a ring anytime soon if she was expecting that. Theresa claims she wasn’t expecting that and says they have a good thing having fun. Alex agrees and says he’s glad but after the first engagement ring debacle, he doesn’t want to hurt her. Alex says he needs her to understand that just because he’s asking her to move in doesn’t mean he’s ready for a big commitment. Theresa repeats that she didn’t think it meant that and says it’s cool for her because she doesn’t have to follow the rules of a commitment. Theresa declares that they are in an open relationship since he’s obviously still involved with Kristen. Alex confirms she understands correctly. Theresa remarks that she’s really glad they cleared that up then as she walks away.

Ava comes out of the post office, shocked to see that Lucas has captured Goldman and tied her up. Lucas reveals that he subdued her with the bear spray he got at the convenience store. Lucas credits the monk robe as being where he hid the bear spray. Ava says she didn’t find anything on Clyde inside while Lucas says they got what they needed in Goldman. Ava tells Goldman that she’s going to lead them to Clyde as they take her away.

Harris reveals to Snake that he’s police. Snake says he could spot that a mile away. Harris says he just wants to talk and asks him to drop the attitude. Snake tells Harris to get out of his face and runs away, so Harris chases after him.

Update written by Joseph

John and Marlena walk through the town square together and show each other what they bought for Jude. They talk about meeting with Eric and Sloan and how they should’ve been there by now. Marlena decides to call Eric to check in while John goes to get their table ready.

Eric wakes up and sees the call from Marlena, but ignores it. Eric then texts Marlena that he’s sorry but he can’t make it tonight as he remains in bed in tears.

John returns to Marlena and says they have a table for four waiting but Marlena informs him that they are not going to need it because Eric just texted her that they aren’t coming. Marlena feels that something is wrong.

Steve and Jada have drinks at the Brady Pub. Steve thanks her for meeting while she thanks him for the invite and admits she’s missed the Pub food. Steve asks if she’s off duty for the night. Jada says she’s actually not, so she’ll have to leave soon and only has time for a quick dinner. Jada talks about being short handed at the police station since when Harris came back, he immediately asked for more dates off. Steve asks if he’s okay. Jada says he’s physically cleared but she doesn’t know what’s going on in his head and he likes to play things close to the vest. Steve questions Harris asking for more days off and not saying why he needed those days.

Harris and Ava arrive at a motel in Montana. Lucas then joins them as well. Lucas says they are bringing a roll away in for him while they take the bed. Ava says they are lucky they aren’t sleeping in the car. Lucas says he doesn’t want to cramp their style. Harris points out that this isn’t a romantic getaway as they are here to catch Clyde. Lucas doesn’t want to be a third wheel. Harris says he brought Lucas as a driver and to be on the lookout. Lucas assures that he appreciates that and he will do his part to make sure that Clyde ends up in the cage where he belongs, so no one else gets hurt. Harris assures that Lucas will get his release afterwards. Lucas asks what the plan is.

Steve goes over Rafe letting Harris take extra days off even though they are short handed. Jada explains that Harris wasn’t going to take no for an answer. Jada asks if Steve is worried about something. Steve responds that he always is and brings up that Ava isn’t around, so he’s assuming Harris is with her. Steve declares that where ever Ava goes, trouble is sure to follow. Jada encourages that Harris can take care of himself. Jada feels Steve is worried about something else too. Steve acknowledges that she knows him too well and admits he’s worried about his daughter.

Chad and Stephanie have coffee in the park. Chad gets a call from Marlena, who says she’s trying to reach Eric but he’s not answering his phone and asks if he’s at work today. Chad says he hasn’t seen him but that Eric did send him a text earlier that the feature he’s been working on is on hold for a few days. Chad says it could be because of what happened with Everett at the bar and maybe he’s trying to keep his distance from the Spectator. Marlena asks Chad to have Eric call her if he hears from him. Chad agrees to do so as they hang up. Marlena then informs John that Eric is not at work. John suggests trying Sloan, so Marlena calls her but finds that her number has been disconnected. John calls that strange. Marlena calls it also alarming and worries that something is going on. John decides they should find out what as they exit the town square.

John and Marlena go to Eric’s apartment. John knocks on the door asking if Eric is inside. Marlena wonders where he could be, pointing out that Eric and Sloan’s cars are both downstairs. Eric then answers the door. Marlena says they’ve been so worried about him. John guesses they had good reason. Marlena asks Eric what happened. Eric says “everything”.

Steve informs Jada that Stephanie told he and Kayla that Everett gave Eric a black eye at the Small Bar. Jada calls it a misunderstanding and says she’s sure the charges will be dropped. Steve says he can get the police report and read it himself but he feels something else is going on here and asks Jada if that’s right. Jada says given their history, she hopes he can understand if she really doesn’t want to get in to Everett’s personal life and business. Steve says he does understand but Everett is dating his daughter and Jada was once married to him, so he needs to know if Everett is a violent man. Jada explains that while they were married, Everett never raised his hand to her so she doesn’t think he will hurt Stephanie like that. Steve feels there’s still something she isn’t telling him. Jada states that Stephanie knows what she’s getting into. Jada wonders where their burgers are and comments that the Pub must be shorthanded too.

Harris brings up how they tracked Clyde to a public library in Montana. Lucas says he gets that’s why they are in the middle of nowhere, risking getting eaten by bears or mosquitoes. Harris thinks it’s worth the risk. Lucas agrees but asks why they didn’t just call the FBI if they know Clyde is there. Harris responds that he wants to deal with that son of a bitch himself. Lucas gets that it’s personal for him. Ava responds that it’s personal for all of them.

Eric explains to John and Marlena that Sloan took EJ and Nicole’s baby and that Jude is their son, not his. Marlena tells him that she’s so sorry as John says he can’t imagine what he’s going through right now. John questions Sloan being on the run. Eric confirms that she took off when he took Jude back to Nicole and EJ. Eric says he should’ve never left her alone. Marlena understands he was in shock while John encourages that he did the right thing in taking Jude back to his real parents. John asks what they can do for him right now. Eric responds that he just wants to be alone. Eric assures that he’s not going to drink. John asks when he last ate. Eric says he hasn’t since he found out so Marlena offers to get him some supper.

Steve apologizes to Jada for all the questions and promises he didn’t invite her to dinner to interrogate her about his daughter’s love life. Jada gets that he’s a concerned dad. Steve wants to be careful not to interfere because Stephanie really hates that. Jada calls Stephanie lucky and wishes that her dad was still here because she misses him every day. Steve responds that he misses his homeboy Marcus too and assures that he’d be so proud of Jada. Steve jokes that if she wants him to step in to that role, he can grill her about her boyfriends and give her unsolicited advice. Steve tells Jada that Rafe is a great guy. Jada agrees and notes that Rafe isn’t just her boyfriend, but also her boss, so she needs to hurry up and eat then get back to work. Steve questions Jada’s bun being gluten free. Jada admits she learned about it from Rebecca Goldman when she worked at the station and reveals that Goldman has celiac disease so it was the only bread she could eat, which Steve takes notice of.

Harris explains to Lucas how they tracked Clyde to the library and says the librarian thinks she saw Goldman in and out of the library often to use the computer, but not Clyde which is no surprise as he would be lying low. Ava adds that Rafe got a tip from his APB that Clyde was spotted here some time back. Lucas asks if the local police followed up. Harris says they said it was a false lead. Lucas wonders if Clyde has the local police in his pocket like he does everybody else. Ava says it wouldn’t surprise her but assures that they can handle this themselves without their involvement. Harris agrees since the town isn’t very big, so if Clyde and Goldman are there, they will find them.

Chad comments to Stephanie that it’s not like Eric to go AWOL and Marlena sounded really worried. Stephanie says she’s sure he’s okay. Chad asks if Stephanie is okay, noting that she keeps checking her phone and seems a little out of it, questioning if that’s why she wanted to meet in the park instead of at the Spectator which Stephanie admits is the case. Stephanie confirms she didn’t want Everett to walk in on them. Chad asks if it’s because of what happened with Eric. Stephanie responds that she’s worried about him in general as he’s just so unpredictable right now. Chad thought they made it clear that they are just friends. Stephanie says they did. Chad asks her what it is. Stephanie then reveals that Marlena thinks Everett has D.I.D. Stephanie doesn’t want to violate his privacy and it feels wrong to speculate about his mental health, but he’s acting so out of character lately like hitting Eric. Stephanie adds that Jada said he came onto her in the holding cell and insisted that he was Robert Stein, a totally different person, and then it was like somebody flipped a switch and he went right back to being Everett again. Chad wishes he would’ve seen that sooner. Stephanie says none of them did but Chad feels he should’ve since he went through it with Abigail.

John, Marlena, and Eric eat together in the town square. Eric doesn’t know why he can’t eat but he’s not hungry. Marlena encourages that he’ll feel better if he eats but Eric doubts that. Eric asks Marlena to tell the rest of the family for him which she agrees to do. John urges Eric to eat and says that he and Nicole are good friends, so he’s sure she will find a way for Eric to still be a part of Jude’s life. Eric says he can’t because Nicole and EJ are together and Jude is their son, so he needs to stay away.

Stephanie tells Chad that she’s sorry for bringing it up but Chad says it’s fine as she wasn’t here when Abigail was sick. Stephanie knows Abigail suffered from the same illness and was two other people. Chad confirms that she was Gabby and Dr. Laura. Stephanie brings up that Abigail made a full recovery. Chad says he was very proud of her. Stephanie guesses it must have been really hard on Chad too. Chad admits it was which makes him second guess his position. Chad knows Stephanie is not one to run away from trouble, but if Everett has D.I.D. it’s going to be a rough ride. Chad asks if she’s sure she is up for that.

Everett walks through the town square so Marlena stops him and says they’ve been looking all over for him. Everett says he’s just been walking around. Marlena asks if he’s okay. Everett claims he’ll be fine. Marlena points out that he hasn’t answered his phone despite her and Stephanie leaving several messages. Everett apologizes and claims he lost battery and didn’t have a charger. Everett asks what is so important. Marlena wants to talk to him about what happened last night.

Lucas asks if Harris thinks Clyde and Goldman are still there. Harris confirms that the librarian thinks she saw Goldman this afternoon. Lucas wonders how they will find out where they are staying. Ava notes that they are likely not in one of the motels. Harris guesses they probably have a place out in the woods somewhere. Lucas feels Clyde would be at a distinct advantage there but Harris points out that he sends his girlfriend on errands, so if they follow her, she leads them to Clyde. Lucas asks if they turn him over to the FBI after that. Ava thinks back to telling Steve that she’s looking for a permanent solution to the Clyde Weston problem. Harris tells Lucas that turning him over to the FBI is the plan.

Jada tells Steve that she has to get back to work since Rafe wants her to take a look at Harris’s case load in case something needs immediate attention while Harris is gone doing whatever he’s doing. Steve assures Jada that he pays for the meal for all his kids. Jada thanks him and says it was so great talking with him. Steve suggests they do it more often and set a date for dinner with her and Rafe. Jada agrees as they hug and she exits. Steve then opens up his laptop and declares that thanks to Jada, he might have an idea how to find Harris and Ava.

Everett tells Marlena that they’ve gone over this as he just had a few too many drinks at the bar and blacked out. Marlena brings up him not remembering punching Eric. Everett then sees Eric at the table and goes over to him to tell him that he owes him a huge apology. Everett adds that he doesn’t remember exactly what happened and might have blacked out a little bit, but he assumes that because he saw Eric and Sloan fighting, he misunderstood what was happening and thought he was trying to hurt her which doesn’t make sense because Eric is apparently a great guy, Sloan is his wife and he loves her. Everett tells Eric that he wants him to know that he’s sorry. Eric gets up and storms off, so John goes after him. Everett asks if he said something wrong. Marlena clarifies that he’s not upset with him. Everett remarks that he has every right to be. Marlena assures that John will take care of Eric, but right now she wants to talk about Everett. Marlena knows he’s concerned about losing time and that she’s not his therapist anymore, but she would like to help him with that if he’d let her.

Stephanie knows it must be very challenging dealing with someone who is mentally ill. Chad says you have no idea until you live with it. Stephanie gets it and says she has a history with Everett and she cares about him, so she can’t just turn his back on him, especially knowing she’s not well. Stephanie feels it would be more honorable to show him support and help him get the help he needs. Chad says that’s if he wants the help, since she said he decided he didn’t need Marlena’s therapy. Chad says he knows from experience that there can be a ton of a resistance with D.I.D. and that Everett might want help, but it might take a hell of a lot for Bobby Stein to admit there’s a problem. Stephanie states that Abigail was lucky that Chad was there for her. Chad feels he wasn’t there for enough since she’s not here. Stephanie says he has to stop blaming himself. Stephanie tells Chad that everyone who cares about him has said that Clyde is the only person responsible for Abigail’s death, so she hopes he rots in Hell.

Lucas jokes that the small cot beats prison or the monastery. Lucas suggests getting something to eat while waiting for Clyde. Ava thinks their options will be limited. Lucas reveals he got elk jerky from the airport that they can share. Harris says he’ll hold off and he thinks he saw a convenient store on the corner. Ava tells them to go ahead while she stays to hold down the fort. Harris tells her to be careful. Ava jokes for them to watch out for bears. Harris says they’ll be fast as he and Lucas exit the room. The motel room phone then rings so Ava answers and it’s Steve. Ava questions how he found her. Steve reminds her that what he does for a living is find people who don’t want to be found. Steve tells Ava that service at the Pub has slacked off since she took a few days off and coincidentally, Harris took the same time off and asks what that is. Ava responds that it’s personal business. Steve reveals that he knows they are both in Montana looking for Clyde Weston, so he’s coming out there to join them. Ava appreciates his offer to help, but says she and Harris have got this. Steve is not so sure and repeats that he’s pretty good at finding people who don’t want to be found. Ava says Harris is too. Steve thinks Harris would appreciate the help. Ava feels Steve doesn’t trust her. Steve brings up that Ava just lied to he and John when she enlisted them to break Clyde out of prison. Ava says she did what she needed to do to save her son. Steve tells Ava that she’s not going to talk him out of this, so he’s coming out there. Ava warns that it’s a small town and Clyde has eyes and ears everywhere and could have the local police in his pocket. Ava worries that if Steve and John show up, it could tip Clyde off that they are on his trail. Ava knows that Steve doesn’t trust her but insists that he can trust Harris because he’s just like him and always does the right thing. Steve says he has no problem trusting Harris, but worries that Ava has a tendency to get people to do things that they wouldn’t have otherwise done. Ava asks Steve to let her do this for Tripp, Wendy, Abigail, and all the people Clyde has hurt. Steve gives in and agrees, but says she has to keep him in the loop starting now. Ava admits someone saw Goldman in town today. Steve says that’s good and if they find her, she’ll lead them straight to Clyde. Ava says that’s the plan. Steve thinks he can help with that as he reveals that he found out Goldman only eats one brand of gluten free bread. Ava notes that she’ll have a hard time finding anything like that in a small town like this. Steve says that’s what he thought but he found out that company ships all over the world and they have a weekly shipment to a PO box in Ennis, Montana and the first shipment went out to a “Faith Silvers” a week after Clyde broke out of prison. Ava questions why he waited so long to tell her and when the next shipment is scheduled. Steve tells her it’s tomorrow so Ava agrees to let Harris know. Steve advises Ava to be careful as he doesn’t want Tripp to be heartbroken or for her to come back in a bodybag. Ava tells Steve not to worry since she can take care of herself as she pulls a gun from her purse. Steve reminds her to keep him in the loop which Ava promises to do. Ava then hangs up and declares the only person coming home from Montana in a bodybag is Clyde. Ava then puts her gun back in the purse as Harris and Lucas return with snacks from the convenient store.

John sits with Eric in the town square. Eric says he’s sorry about that but the last thing he wants is an apology from Everett. Eric says he’s still trying to wrap his head around the fact that Jude is Nicole’s baby. John brings up when he had to give Eric and Sami back to Roman, so he sort of knows what he’s going through since he had them for years. John notes that still staying in his life and loving him even though he wasn’t his helped make the pain go away over the years. Eric is glad John made that choice back then because he’s lucky to have him now. John encourages that Eric can make that choice with Jude now but Eric isn’t sure. John asks if he thinks EJ won’t allow it. Eric says that’s most of it as the last thing he wants to do is make Nicole’s life any harder.

Everett tells Marlena that he appreciates her looking out for him but he’s made himself clear that he does not want her help. Marlena says that they are worried about him and he hasn’t even called Stephanie since she paid his bail. Everett repeats that his phone died but Marlena says they both know that’s not true and that something is not right with him. Marlena thinks he’s afraid to talk to anyone who might confirm that. Everett declares the conversation over and asks Marlena to stay away from him as he storms off.

Jada sits in Rafe’s office at the police station and gets a call from Marlena, who says she just ran in to Everett in the town square. Jada asks if he said where he’d been. Marlena says no but it’s pretty clear he’s been avoiding people and just went in to the Salem Inn. Jada asks how he seemed. Marlena says that he did apologize to Eric but when she said how worried they were about him, he got agitated. Marlena wants to get with Jada and Stephanie to see if they can create an intervention. Jada agrees to whatever she thinks they can do to help Everett.

Chad tells Stephanie that Everett is lucky to have her in his corner since he knows he doesn’t have much of a support system. Chad feels bad for being a jerk to him in the beginning and not taking the high road. Stephanie points out that Chad apologized for that and Everett forgave him. Chad declares that if Stephanie is going to be there for Everett, then he will be there for her. Stephanie thanks him. Stephanie then gets a text from Jada that Everett is okay which Chad calls good news. Stephanie adds that Jada also texted that Marlena wants to stage an intervention. Chad tells Stephanie to let him know if she needs any help. Stephanie says she will and thanks Chad for listening and caring as she then walks away. Chad then gets a call from Steve and asks if there’s any leads on where Clyde is. Steve says he can’t tell him anything yet except that Harris is on the case and he’s confident that he will bring Clyde back. Chad asks if he means dead or alive. Steve doesn’t think he has to tell him which one he would prefer.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

[ Dramatic music ]

Hope: You can’t be serious.

Steffy: I don’t say things I don’t mean, especially when it comes to the fiscal health of this company. Tough decisions have to be made.

Hope: And you’re making this decision without any input from me.

Steffy: Hope, your line is in trouble. I wish that weren’t the case.

Hope: I somehow seriously doubt that.

Steffy: Okay, you can think whatever you want, but I have to think about this company. If that means cutting your line, then I’ll have to do that.

Brooke: You’re not sure about luna’s mother?

Donna: What exactly do you mean by that?

Katie: Just what I said.

Brooke: Well, you told us that she and bill are an item, but you and bill are close too, despite the fact that you’re not married anymore.

Donna: So, we have to ask you again, sis. Is there still a part of you that wants another chance with bill?

Bill: It’s really true. You and I could have a daughter together.

Poppy: Yes.

Bill: I mean, I could be the dad that luna never had growing up.

Poppy: Yes, bill. Yes, you could be luna’s father.

Luna: My mom’s told you that I don’t know who my father is. Well, has she ever mentioned anything or any ideas on who it could be?

Bill: We discussed it. And for a while, I thought, maybe hoped, that it could be me.

Luna: Is bill spencer my father?

Poppy: No, honey. Bill isn’t your father.

Li: I need to speak with you, luna. It can’t wait.

Luna: What can’t?

Li: Your mother and bill’s relationship. I need to know where things stand. Tell me everything.

Katie: I’ve already said that I don’t see a future with bill.

Donna: Yes, you said that, but is that how you really feel?

Katie: Are– are you accusing me of not knowing my own heart, my own mind?

Brooke: We are not accusing you. We love you.

Donna: Sweetie, we just want you to be happy.

Katie: I am happy.

Donna: Okay. But could you be happier? You know, if you had what you once had with bill. When things were really good between you two.

Li: I know poppy’s been spending a lot of time with bill, but I’m also aware that your mother has a history. A pattern of dating older, very wealthy men. I don’t think her intentions are pure.

Luna: So you’re saying my mom uses men? That she’s a gold digger?

Li: That’s precisely what I’m saying.

Poppy: I’m so sorry for not being more transparent with you earlier.

Bill: No, you– you don’t have to apologize. I understand. You were afraid. You have nothing to be afraid of. This could be the most incredible blessing. And not just for you and me, but especially for luna. We both know what needs to happen next, poppy. A paternity test. Today.

Hope: You can’t just shut me out like this.

Steffy: I’m not. I’m including you in the decision making. Especially where the financial viability of hope for the future is concerned.

Hope: Well, if that were true, I– I feel like I would’ve been a part of the conversation much earlier, so that I could make some corrections in order to save the line.

Steffy: Okay, how could you do that?

Hope: Oh, so in other words, you are tanking the line.

Steffy: As co-ceo of this company, it’s my job to make this company more profitable. Make tough decisions, hope.

Hope: Exactly. Co-ceo. Steffy, you aren’t running this company just on your own. I mean, have you even run this by ridge?

Steffy: Okay, that’s besides the point.

Hope: Because he had a very different view.

Steffy: It’s besides the point, hope. Okay, well, you know, I think it is– it is the point, if what I suspect is true.

Steffy: Which is?

Hope: That this decision to cut my line, it’s not strictly business. And I’m right, aren’t I?

“The darkness of bipolar

depression made me feel like

Steffy: Seriously, you think I’m canceling your line to teach you a lesson?

Hope: Oh, so you admit you are canceling it.

Steffy: That is yet to be determined.

Hope: Oh, but it’s heading that way.

Steffy: Hope for the future has lost its footing.

Hope: Well, I’m not the one who strong-armed thomas into taking my son and leaving the country and costing my line its lead designer.

Steffy: Okay, thomas had to do what was best for him. And his son. So, we’re done talking about it.

Hope: Well, of course we are, because you know–

Steffy: The one thing I know is that I’ve been concerned about hope for the future for a very long time. And I gave you time. You and your team to pull it together, but you haven’T. Now, it’s time to take action. So yes, I will be talking to my father. And I will be talking to carter. A decision has to be made on your line.

Katie: Wow, you two really know how to put your little sister on the spot.

Donna: Sweetie, that– that is not what this is about. We just wanna make sure that you’ve really turned the page with bill or is there something more that you wanna explore?

Brooke: We can tell on some level you still love him and miss him. Unless we’re misreading you. Are we?

Katie: No, you’re not entirely off base. I mean, bill gave me a life. We had a lot of good times together. He opened up the world for me, in a way. He gave me a love that I never could’ve imagined. And the best gift of all, our son. I mean, will, is– he is– he is the light of my life.

Brooke: And bill’S.

Katie: Yeah, he’s been a remarkable father to will. He really has. And we’ve had a lot of amazing times as a family.

Donna: Look, you and bill share– share a child together and that is something luna’s mother will never have with bill.

Luna: Please, aunt li, let’s not do this again. Okay, I realize that you and my mom have your differences, but–

Li: It’s much more than that. I see who poppy really is. The way she’s lived her life.

Luna: She’s lived her life raising me. And caring for me and– and loving me.

Li: Spoken like a loyal, devoted daughter. Who perhaps is wearing blinders where her mother is concerned.

Luna: Until recently, maybe that was true. Maybe I did put her on a pedestal, but I’ve realized that she’s human. And she’s gonna make mistakes, just like the rest of us. But that doesn’t mean that I don’t still love her. And I’m not gonna defend her when I feel like she’s being unfairly attacked.

Li: By me. Because of what I said about her and bill.

Luna: My mom has fallen for bill. He means a lot to her.

Li: Of course, he does. He ticks all the boxes. He’s handsome, older, rich, very rich, but he’s also kelly’s grandfather. And as everyone knows how protective I am of finn’s family. I won’t allow poppy to take advantage of bill.

Luna: Okay, this is ridiculous. My mom’s feelings towards bill are nothing but genuine. And he’s crazy about her, too.

Bill: Luna could actually be my daughter.

Poppy: You really want that?

Bill: I can’t wait. Are you kidding me? You know, luna has spent her– her whole life not knowing who her father is. And if it’s me, I’ve gotta make up for lost time. I wanna get that relationship going yesterday. We need to do this paternity test. Right now, today.

Poppy: Hey, I agree. But– but first, I wanna talk to luna alone.

Bill: Yeah. Yeah, absolutely. I just hope she’s as excited as I am about the possibility of me being her father.

Katie: I appreciate both of you saying what you’re saying, but bill and I have been apart for quite some time and he seems quite smitten with luna’s mom.

Brooke: Maybe. But it seems deep down, he would like to reunite will’s family.

Donna: And not just for will’s sake. Look, if the love that you have for bill has never gone away, katie…

Hope: Hi. Mom, please. Katie, donna, I’m sorry to interrupt. I just– I heard my mom was here, so.

Brooke: Hi, honey. What’s up?

Hope: Um, I just came from a meeting with steffy and something needs to be done about her. She’s completely out of control.

Carter: It doesn’t look good. I mean, hope for the future’s in transition, but these latest projections…

Steffy: They’re worse than what we expected.

Carter: It’s definitely falling short. But like ridge said, if we give the line time to bounce back.

Steffy: Carter, you’re our coo. Do you really think we should just wait around, cross our fingers, until hope for the future comes roaring back? I didn’t think so.

Liam: Okay, you have been pushing me to get this deal wrapped for weeks now. I’ve been working day and night, nonstop, just to make it happen for you. And then finally, when we’re down to the wire, I can’t find you. I gotta come chase you down at home just to get a– a sig– a– hello? Hello, dollar bill spencer. Hi.

Bill: What? What? What?

Liam: Have you heard a– a–

Bill: No, no, I haven’t heard. No, not really, ’cause you’re like, blah, blah, blah.

Liam: Okay. Ooh, not sure what to do here. Um, what is going on with you today?

Bill: Um, well, poppy was here just before you arrived.

Liam: Oh. Oh. Oh, god. Did I almost interrupt like a–

Bill: No, no, no, no, no. It’s not what you think.

Liam: Okay. What is it, then?

Bill: What is it? Uh, it’S… well, poppy, uh, told me something that was just mind-blowing.

Poppy: Hey, luna? Can you take a break? I really need to talk to you.

Luna: Mom, I’m working.

Poppy: This is important. Very much so.

Luna: What? What’s going on?

Poppy: There’s something you need to know. It’s about your father. To give your teeth a dentist clean feeling.

Liam: You said poppy just left?

Bill: Yeah.

Liam: You guys argue?

Bill: What? Do I look upset to you?

Liam: No.

Billy: Angry?

Liam: No.

Bill: Well, then?

Liam: Well, then what?

Bill: Ah, you know, liam, you are my son, and I consider you to be a fairly intuitive person, and yet, when it comes to read your old man, you’re like, whew. When I said that poppy told me something mind-blowing, I meant in a good way. Hell, in a great way. I mean, I’m thrilled.

Liam: Oh. Okay. All right. You’re thrilled. You’re thrilled? I’m thrilled you’re thrilled. What– what– what– what are we thrilled about?

Bill: Ah, life, liam. Just life. Poppy and I were reminiscing about that– that one night that

Liam: Music festival. We spent together.

Bill: Yeah, yes. Well, um, the one regret that i always had is that it was just that one night, that I let all of my business distractions get in the way, and I– I never reached out to poppy again. And I– I never even thought for a moment that there was a possibility that– that, um… well, poppy, she told me something yesterday. And, uh, liam, poppy finally admitted that I could be luna’s father.

Luna: My father? What about him?

Poppy: Um, I know that for most of your life, you’ve wondered who your father is.

Luna: Yeah. Only you’d never tell me, for reasons I still don’t completely understand.

Poppy: I’m sorry, sweetheart. It’s– it’s just that I loved our life together so much that I didn’t think that I needed anyone except– except my beautiful and my precious daughter.

Luna: And what, that’s changed?

Poppy: Over 20 years ago, on one magical and unforgettable night, I was with the most amazing and unique man. It’s a man that I fell in love with from the moment I saw him. And that’s why I always told you that you were made from love.

Luna: Okay, mom, I need to know. You have to open up. You need to finally tell me who my father is.

Poppy: Yes, and this is why I’m here, to give you the incredible news. Now, I am not 100% certain, but there is a chance, a very good chance, that your father… is bill.

Luna: What? Bill? My– my father could be bill spencer?

Poppy: Yes. Yes, honey.

Luna: Oh, my god. I– I’ve almost given up hope to ever knowing, uh– uh… and to hear you say that it– it might be bill spencer?

Carter: You’re really considering killing hope’s line?

Steffy: Hope for the future is underperforming in a very big way, and thomas isn’t here to save the day.

Carter: I know, but come on, steffy. There’s no way brooke will let that happen.

Steffy: Well, brooke isn’t ceo, carter. I am.

Brooke: What has steffy done now?

Hope: Oh, you won’t believe it. Actually, wait, what am I talking about? What am I saying? You will believe it because it is just so typical of her.

Brooke: What is?

Hope: Well, pulling rank. You know, her vindictiveness. I, look, I– I am not going to deny the fact that hope for the future is going through a rough patch right now, given the way that thomas left.

Brooke: Thanks to steffy convincing him to run off to paris and leaving you and your line in a lurch.

Hope: Exactly. That is something that takes time to recover from. And I knew it was going to be challenging and I wasn’t about to throw in the towel. I mean, hope for the future means so much to me, and it is so much more than a clothing line. It’s about empowering women and backing the causes that we care about. And that doesn’t matter to steffy at all. My name is on the line, she wants to destroy it, just like she’s trying to destroy me.

Donna: Wait, hope, what are you saying? This– this–

Hope: Well, steffy’s already helped destroy my relationship to thomas. You know, encouraged him to move across the world and took my son with him, and now she’s trying to take hope for the future away from me as well.

Brooke: What? No, sweetheart.

Hope: No, mom, it’s true. Steffy wants to cancel hope for the future. She says that it’s a business decision, but we all know that is not the case. This is about her personal vendetta against me. This is about her trying to take something that I care so much about away from me yet again, and I am tired of it. I’m not going to allow it, mom. Look, I’ve tried to play nice, but if she wants to do this, if she wants to go after my line and pit the forresters against the logans, then let her. Steffy has another think coming and she’s going to regret it because this time, it’s war.

Teresa Donovan. As I live and breathe. Hello, Stefan.

It’s been a while. Welcome to the bistro. Oh, delighted to be here. So I take it you have everything you need? Indeed, I do. Your staff has been And just so you know, this is a celebratory mocktail. Okay, uh, uh, what are you celebrating? If it’s your birthday, I can have the waitstaff come out and sing you a song.

Nah, no, no, no, it’s not my birthday. I’m actually celebrating moving into the Kyriakos Mansion. Or Kyriakos Domicile, as I prefer to call it. It’s a little less pretentious that way, don’t you think? Uh, it is, it is a mansion, Theresa. It’s a mansion. Yeah, I know, it is pretty enormous, isn’t it? And Alex and I practically have a whole wing to ourselves.

Oh, you moved in with Alex, huh? Mm hmm. Yeah, we just left our crime department just a few days ago. You know, we had the servants unpack for us. So we’re all settled in. Lucky you. I know. Lucky me indeed. So Alex, tell me, oh, oh my god, did you, uh, wake up this morning and, uh, just come straight to my bed from Teresa’s?

Would it bother you if I said yes?

Maybe. Would it bother you less if I told you I got a present for you? It might help. Well then.

I stopped by the jewelry store. On my way over to you. While I was walking through the square. Oh my god, Alex. That is beautiful. I saw it in the window the other day, and uh, it made me think of you, so I went back and I bought it. That’s gorgeous. Yeah, I really like it. Uh huh. I love it. Let me just show you how much.

You’re up early. Did something happen?

Yeah, we just got a major break on Weston.

He’s being stoic, but I know that he’s heartbroken. Yeah.

You love that little boy, and you love being a father. God, I’m just, I’m so glad that you’re there for him, Roman. He really, he needs you right now. Hmm. Okay, I will check in with you. Thanks. Bye. This

is just heartbreaking. So heartbreaking. So you prefer to sleep during the day? Is that it, little one? Or perhaps you’re just still adjusting to your new home? New family? And is that why you were up every hour on the hour last night crying your little heart out? Well, don’t you worry. That’ll change as soon as you start to settle in with your mom and me.

You may have also noticed that I’m not using your name anymore. Well, that’s because I don’t want you to get used to it since we’re going to be giving you a new name. Once your mother and I settle on something more suitable. You see, Jude DeMirra doesn’t work for me. Not at all.

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

How much do you want to bet that’s Maggie right now? I’m wondering why the hell I’m not in the office. And why are you not in the office? Isn’t that obvious? Okay, listen Alex, as much as I enjoy lying in bed with you all morning, if my brother Titan’s vulnerable. He’s sure to take advantage. He’s always watching.

Let him watch. He can’t touch Titan as long as I’m in charge. Well, my God, this woman’s extra persistent. Maggie, come on. Oh, damn, I’m late for an appointment. Okay, well, you know what? Then go. We’re just getting started. You gotta get to work.

Okay, okay, okay, okay, okay.

Speaking of luck, you were certainly born with a proverbial silver spoon in your mouth, huh? Being a DiMera and all. Your point. Why would you choose to run this, oh, so very popular bistro? Because, Teresa, I never leave anything to chance. And, if you’ve been paying attention, you’d know that my inheritance has changed hands quite a few times.

That explains it, then. And yes, I admit, it has been a little Slow here. Slow? It’s empty. It’s early. Our lunch crowd hasn’t trickled in yet. And, in fairness, we did just lose our GM, and Ava had a knack for helping people feel welcome and at home. Me? I’m just the money guy. Right. Well, sounds like you need a new manager then.

One with all those people skills you just talked about. You’re probably right. Maybe I do.

So the ISA teamed up with Naval Intel and I just heard this from Andrew Donovan. They cracked the code in Clyde’s black book. That’s amazing. I know. Well, how, how did they do it so quickly? I don’t know. These guys are pros. Andrew said they found a list of dealers, their numbers, and that they’re forming a multi agency task force to track them all down.

Oh my god. That’s fantastic. Yeah. And the best part of this? Three of those dirtbags on the list are local. Andrew gave me their information. I’m telling you right now, one of those guys is going to lead me to Clyde.

Okay, so for the record I’ve been meaning to do this for a while, but here take a look do you think

Yeah Looks pretty good. You know, I had to learn the hard way, though, at Bella, that SEOs for job searches are incredibly specialized. Yeah, well, DiMera’s marketing department usually would take care of that stuff for me, so Oh, God. Job searching. I’ve been doing that ever since I left Bella. It’s just so cold now, you know, with all the computers.

There’s like, nothing personal about it. Exactly, and that is not the way I operate. I’m a people person, believe it or not. I would like to put an emphasis on social connections. Camaraderie.

You wouldn’t happen to know somebody perfect for this job, would you?

Come here. Wow, what is this? Is this some new fetish of yours? Good morning, Kristen. Alex. Hey, Jay. Well, you have great timing, you two. There’s breakfast in the kitchen. And would either of you be interested in meeting my son? Uh Your son? I’m sorry. I actually am running late. Maybe some other time, though. I gotta, I gotta go.

I’ll see you guys. See ya. What? Ahem. Oh, yes, well, I thought I heard a baby crying last night. Figured I just imagined it. No, no, no, you were not imagining. There was certainly a lot of crying last night, poor little fellow. I think he’s still getting used to his living arrangements. Is it? Okay, let me, this is your, your son.

Do you have a minute to sit down? It’s a long story.

No way am I staying behind, Harris. No, you know what? You listen to me, okay? I am the one who helped you track down Clyde. I am the one who sent the email with those photos. And I sure as hell did not come all this way to sit on my ass. Okay, we don’t want to take the chance of tipping Clyde off. Okay, please remember who you are dealing with here.

I’m not an amateur. I know that, but the DEA, the FBI, we’re all going to be following the same leads. If we tip Clyde off, he’s going to panic and he’s going to get out of town. Yeah, and he’s going to be caught off guard, so he’s bound to make some mistakes. That’s true, and he will be running scared. And that’s when I’ll take him down.


was the last time this motel was remodeled? The 60s or something? Yeah, maybe not even that recently. Well, beats the monastery, I’ll tell you that. Although I don’t understand what Harris is doing, dragging me all the way out here in the middle of nowhere just to do nothing. Doesn’t make sense. He didn’t.

What do you mean he didn’t? Well, I just got a text from him. He’s got a new lead. Oh yeah? What? So apparently, Goldman is supposed to go to the post office today to pick up some package. Yeah. So he wants us to go there and stake it out in case she shows up with Clyde. Well, that’s odd. I don’t know, he was pretty adamant about us staying here, so Yeah, well, that was before we got the new information, okay?

Harris can’t be in two places at once, so We’re up. Get dressed. Okay, cool. Ahem. Well, no one comes to mind for the manager position, but what I think you could really use is a PR firm to help you get your reputation back on track. You know my cousin Stephanie, she is fantastic. She runs SJPR. I know Stephanie Johnson.

Ava and I brought her on to rep this place before things went south. But I’m gonna need somebody who is on site and I don’t think Stephanie would be interested in that. You could ask her. I could. But before I do, before Bella went south, did you have any part in the Brady family restaurant dynasty? Well, the Bradys are my family.

Right. Obviously. And I have spent my fair share of time at the pub, so I don’t know, does that make me part of the restaurant dynasty? Sure does. Huh. Okay, well then I guess I am. Why are you asking? Because I think this ad was written especially for you.

Sorry I’m late, Dr. Evans. Only by five minutes. Yeah, right. It’s a good thing that office sent out the reminder text. Got us slightly distracted. Yes, well, distractions happen. Yeah. You cancelled your last three appointments, though. That’s right. Uh, and that will never happen again, I swear to God. Things have just been very, very hectic at Titan recently, and it’s kind of hard to find the time, you know?

Yeah. Yeah. Is there something you want to talk to me about? I had something on my mind, yeah. Okay. I’m listening. Okay, well, um, as you know, originally when I came here, it was, um, to put my Playboy ways behind me. Right? Yeah. At that time, I was pursuing Stephanie. That didn’t work out, as you know. And because I thought she was the one, foolishly, in retrospect, I had a very hard time getting over it when she rejected me.

And Teresa showed up in my life, and we have been together. off and on since then. And right now we are pretty much on. Tate told me that she had moved back into the mansion, uh, and that, uh, the two of you are back together. Yeah. I mean, sort of. Sort of? I mean, we are living together, Teresa and I, yes. Um, but I’m also seeing Kristen DiMera.

So, let me get this straight. Sloan paid off some skeevy doctor to tell you and Nicole that your son was dead. And then she took the baby, which obviously is not dead, and she adopted him. Boggles the mind, doesn’t it? No, it’s just pure evil. Good. I mean, I knew that woman was horrible, but to steal a child.

And then, out of the blue, she confesses the truth to Eric and vanishes from Seven without a trace. Oh my God. And how is Nicole taking this? Well, she’s obviously over the moon about the baby and would love to throttle Sloane. I don’t blame her. Where is Nicole anyway? Oh, she’s upstairs resting. The baby had a wakeful night.

Up every hour on the hour, in fact. The So the baby, your son Well, he’s napping right now, as you can see. And I think it’s gonna be quite a, quite a long one, seeing how he was up all night, as I said. But, as soon as he wakes up, you will get to meet your new nephew. Aww, I look forward to it. But, um, But what?

I’m just processing what you just told me. And, uh, I don’t know, it’s horrible as Sloan is. I just, I don’t, I don’t get it. But what’s to get? You know the whole story. Well, I don’t think I do, and I don’t think you do either. What’s that supposed to mean? Alright, well, I will, I know miracles happen. I got Rachel back when I thought she had died.

So the undead baby part, uh, I mean, that’s not what strains humility for me. Then what does, Diane? What are you talking about? Well, what I’m, what I’m talking about is, I mean, that Sloane, I mean, you think that she did this all by herself, this major deception? I don’t know. I mean, doesn’t that sound fishy to you?

So, you’re seeing Kristen and Teresa? Yeah. And to be honest, Dr. Evans, I actually really like it that way. Variety’s the spice of life, right?

Understood. Yeah, I didn’t expect you to approve that. Actually, I’m just more curious how this all affects you. Right. So, Kristen and Teresa, do they both know? Well, Kristen knows, yeah. She doesn’t care, you know. She actually told me she was in the middle of her driest spell of her life when I showed up. So, for her, I think it’s more, you know, just about being close to someone, uh, physically.

You mean the sex? Yeah, you could put it that, yeah, that, yeah. And Teresa? And Teresa, I think it’s mostly about the money.

You think she’s with you for your money? Nah, I mean, look, I know I’m a decently handsome guy, charming, good for a laugh, but, um, ultimately, I think it’s because I am rich, to be quite frank. Hmm. How does that feel to you? Not good for the ego, of course. You know, we all want somebody to be into us for who we are.

How fascinating of a person we are, right? But, you know, to be honest with you, Dr. Evans, I think nowadays, it’s about the money for a lot of women. For a lot of women? Yeah. Have you done a survey? No survey, but I am speaking from personal experience. And what have you learned? I have learned that since I have become the heir to the Kiriakis fortune, women are throwing themselves at me a lot more than usual.

And you’re just having to bat them away. That, pretty much. So, you and Teresa are now living together at the mansion. Yeah. Big step up from apartment living. Why did you ask her to move in? Um, because it makes sense. You know, she didn’t want to live alone in the apartment, and the Kiriakis mansion is huge.

She doesn’t have a job right now, so her not having to pay rent is a big help. Do you think that asking her to move in with you would suggest a certain level of commitment that you don’t feel?

Um, I guess I didn’t really, uh, I didn’t really think about that, but, um, I don’t think she’s expecting anything. Well, have you asked her? I mean, do you have any idea what she might be expecting? I guess I don’t know for sure. Well, don’t you owe it to her to find out? And, and also, let her know where you are.


Yeah. I guess I do.

Are you seriously offering me a job? I am. Well, thank you. I am truly flattered. But, I would have totally taken this opportunity if this was like a week ago. But, you know, I’m in a relationship now. You’re welcome. With Alex, Kiriakis, and this might not sound terribly feminist of me, but I get it, I get it.

You don’t need to work. Not now, anyway. So, uh, how do you plan on passing your time?

I don’t know, I haven’t really thought about it since I just moved in with Alex, but, um Thinking maybe, learn to play the piano, maybe guitar lessons, or, I don’t know, maybe I could do some volunteer work, or travel. Sounds enriching. Yeah. It might be really tiresome though too, right? I mean, who knows, maybe being rich is like, really boring.

I don’t know, I just want to keep my time free. For now. Got it. But if I think of anyone, I’ll let you know. Thank you. Appreciate that. What? You don’t find it hard to believe that Sloane pulled this off all by herself? I mean, the, the baby switch, having your son declared dead, I mean, et cetera. I mean, this is a pretty complex scheme, EJ.

I am just telling you what she told me, and the police are searching everywhere for her. The Salem police. Ha ha ha. Don’t make me laugh. The Salem police and me, I’ve offered every demure resource in tracking down that horrible woman and bringing her to justice. So, is that the same? Resources to track down, uh, Clyde Weston.

I mean, how’s that going? Are you loosing your, uh Magic touch, little bro?

Shut up, Kristen. This is ridiculous. Don’t you think I look conspicuous? Like the guy dressed in full camo didn’t look conspicuous? No, he didn’t. He was blending in. That’s what camo does. You blend in when you have camo. Everybody’s dressed for deer season here. Deer hunting and cattle wrestling. Okay, alright, I get it.

I get it, okay? You are just like every man I’ve ever met. Deep down, you want to be a cowboy and you’re mad I didn’t get you the cowboy hat. Yeah, the cowboy hat would have been perfect. I would have blended in great. This makes me stick out like a sore thumb. I hate this stupid robe. Okay. The whole point of religious clothes is to make you look non threatening, okay?

We are going to have to talk to some people, right? We’re gonna have to ask them for help, for some information. They’re gonna be more likely to talk to a man of the cloth than a cowboy. Fine, if you say so. I do say so. I’m done talking about this, okay? I’m gonna go into the post office, and I’m gonna talk to the clerk.

See if she knows anything about Clyde and Goldman, alright? Alright, I guess that makes sense. They have been here a while, so Here’s to hoping someone has seen them. Fingers crossed. Alright, you stay out here, okay? Keep your eye out for Goldman, and if you see her, you text me, okay? I got it. Will do. Okay. Oh, and please, Lucas, don’t confront her, okay?

She’s probably armed, and we know she’s dangerous. Yes, I know. Last time I ran into her, she almost shot me and killed me. Confrontation with her is not on my list. Don’t worry about it. Okay, good. Keep your eye out, alright? Watch the door. Alright, go for it.

Hey, you got an extra smoke? You know how expensive these things are? What the hell up, dude? Having your way, dude. You’re Snake, right? Who the hell’s asking?

Thank you, Dr. Evans. Talking to you was really helpful, as always. I’m glad. Good luck with everything and say hello to Maggie for me. Thank you, I will. Although we’re not really speaking too much nowadays, I don’t think she’s very thrilled that Theresa and I are moving in. Good. Correction, she loves Teresa.

I’m sure she’s fine with her living there, but uh, me? Not so much lately. Well, I hope you’ll work things out. Yeah, for sure. Stranger things have happened, right? The thing is, it’s not even the fact that I’m just not getting along with Maggie. Now that she’s involved with this creep Constantine, it’s just making things even more awkward, you know?

Yeah, I understand how you feel. For the life of me, I can’t understand why she’s letting that guy stay there. You know, or why she’s so devoted to him. I mean, I get that she’s lonely, but it’s like everything this guy does exudes phoniness. And every word out of his mouth is just like I don’t know. Total BS.

I can’t say I’m a fan. I think Maggie’s his only fan, actually. Yeah, uh, keep an eye on her, would you please? I will. For sure. Well, I’ll see you soon. I would like to make an appointment for next week. I’d like that. I’ll keep it. Thanks.

Ah, EJ, what a week you have had. It’s, it’s been eventful. Well, at least, uh, you got the baby back. I mean, that’s gotta be a happy thing. Indeed it is. Oh, I am really sorry about, um, John. I admit I was blindsided by Mayor Price’s decision, but she will soon regret making an enemy of me. I’m sure she will. Um, oh, um, actually I heard of, uh, rumblings of a recall election, I’m assuming.

Thank you, Mayor. That’s your handiwork? Well, uh, are you thinking of replacing her? You never know. Hmm, well, actually, I mean, if being DA and DiMera CEO, I mean, that was considered a conflict of interest, uh, what makes you think that being there? Is any less so. That is simple, Kristen. You see, the mayor makes the rules.

I love to make rules.

Oh! My fault, I wasn’t watching my own. You. You.

Hey Roman, I’m just checking in. Oh, you saw him. He just left. How did he seem to you? Um, I’m so glad you were there. I bet that helped a lot. Yeah, no, I agree. He’s going to need his family more than ever now. Now

that he’s lost his son. Ah, still here. Well, since I no longer have to be in my place of employment, where else would I be? Huh. Have you heard about, uh, that thing? I have, yes. Have you had the pleasure of meeting our family’s newest addition? Well, I have. Before he nodded off. But, uh, he’s very sleepy this morning.

Yes, well, he was awake all night. I really do hope this, uh, baby miracle, uh, takes some of the sting off you’re getting. Indeed it does. I feel very blessed to have the cause of my son back where he belongs. Well, you know, I think we should let EJ, uh, have some time to bond with his baby. Well, that’s hard to do while he’s sleeping.

Well, I’m sure he’ll wake up soon. That will give you and I some time to get some air. Good idea. Bye. Bye.


Hey. Where are you coming from? You were up and at them before I even saw you this morning. Yeah, yeah, I had a session with Dr. Evans. How was breakfast? Interesting. You? Also interesting. How so? Well, um, After speaking with Dr. Evans, I realized some things. And I need to be up front. With everyone. Everyone? You.

I’m Kristen. What about Kristen? I’ve been seeing her.

Seeing her as, as in? Yeah, yeah.

I thought that was over, Alex. I thought that that was just an act to make me and Brady jealous. And it was, at the beginning. You know what, it’s okay. I just don’t even explain it. I don’t need to hear it. Um, I just, um. I just want to know, where does that leave us?

Theresa, I really do like living with you. I mean it. I just need you to understand that I’m not in a position to be pulling out a ring anytime soon. If you were expecting that. No. No, I was, I wasn’t expecting that. Okay. I mean, We’ve got a good thing here. You know, we’re just like having fun. We’re, we’re compatible.

It’s all good. Yeah, no, and I agree. I’m glad. It’s just after that whole first engagement ring debacle, you know, I, it hurt you and I don’t want to hurt you, Teresa. But I do need you to understand that, A, just because I’m asking you to move back in with me, I Doesn’t mean I’m ready for like a big commitment.

I know, I don’t, I didn’t, I didn’t think it did, I said that. Okay, good.

You know what’s really cool about this whole thing, for me? Is that I don’t need to follow the rules of a commitment. Because if I’m understanding correctly, you and I are in an open relationship, right? Since you’re obviously still involved with Kristen.

Yeah. Yeah. You understand, correctly. Good. I’m really glad we cleared that up then. Yeah.

Oh my God, I told you not to confront her. I didn’t confront her. She ran into me. I had no choice. She was going to blow my face off if I didn’t do something. So I did something. Yeah, I can see. So what happened to her eyes? Bear spray. I got the bear spray at the convenience store. Well, they said the bears come out of the woods to forage for food.

So, you know, I’m a little proud of that. Paranoid when it comes to wild animals. Like, I shot it with bear spray and it works on people too, doesn’t it? Hey!

You know, I’m really glad that you made me wear this because this is how I hit the bear spray. I can hide a lot of things in here. You never know when I have them. Yeah, I don’t want to know. It doesn’t matter. Did you find out anything about Clyde? I didn’t find a thing. Remember, we got who we want, don’t we?

We have our ex, Officer Goldman. We got you right where we want you. And you’re going to lead us straight to Clyde, aren’t you, Officer? You, uh, Oh yeah Police no kidding find you a mile away Uh, look, I just uh, I want to talk so maybe we just dropped this attitude. Maybe you should get out of my face

Josslyn, if you got something to say, say it. It’s a fantastic opportunity, drew! And what a compliment — that he wants you? Yeah, it’s, uh… definitely intriguing. “Intriguing” was the total eclipse a month ago. You are being recruited to run for a powerful congressman’s seat — by that very congressman! Aren’t you excited? Well, possibly not as excited as you are, but, no — yeah, I am. It’s — it’s a rush. It’s kind of crazy and — and obviously an honor, but what makes you think that I can do this? And I’m not fishing for compliments here. I-I really want to know. Are you kidding? You single-handedly changed the course of my life — and my family’s life. You risked your life for me, drew. You — you genuinely care about people. Think about what you could do with — with more resources on a wider scale and a bigger stage. Oh. Drew. Hey. Hey. Is this — is this about the new tomorrow institute? I’m not interrupting a work session, am I? Actually, drew has something important to tell you. So, I hear this wedding was really something. Very eventful. Uh, yeah. Why? Did you, uh — did you talk to kristina? Sam. I haven’t actually talked to kristina much since the wedding. I’ve just a lot going on at work, and, um, I need to tie up a bunch of things so I can take time off when the baby comes. Oh, yeah. The baby. Congrats again. Yes. [ Chuckles ] Uh, do you have, uh, tj painting the nursery or something like that? No, but I should. Yeah. You should. Yeah. -Yeah. -That’s a good idea. -Get him working. -Thank you. Soon. Very…soon. Hmm. Um, well, I’d better get going. I’ll — I’ll see you later, dante. Yeah. Yeah. See you around.

[ Exhales sharply ] Thanks for meeting me. Hi! Allie!

[ Chuckles ] Molly! Been a minute. I know. My family calls me a workaholic, and I’d love to deny it, but…

[ Both chuckle ] Um, hey, have you seen kristina lately? I just left her at her mom’s house. At your mom’s house, actually. She wanted to see how alexis was doing. Yeah. No. I-I’m headed there, too, after I just drop something at the courthouse. The davis girls will be in full support. We should hang out soon. Kristina and i and you and tj. Yes! I would love that! Maybe we can all talk about what went down at this eventful wedding.

[ Chuckles ] No pro blem, mom. Just gethere as soon as you can. No, molly is not here yet. Okay. I’ll see you soon. I love you. Did she say anythingabout gregory? How did she sound? Okay…ish. I hope she’s alright. I mean, she’s just been so upset since gregory passed. Yeah, I know. Gregory’s death hit her pretty hard. I mean, she and gregory were supposed to go to the wedding together until the hearing came up. Yeah, I know. I hope it was worth it. I just worry that if she loses her law license, she — no, no, no, no, no, no. Don’t — don’t — don’t — don’t say that please. Because I worry, too. But we have to remember that sometimes mom is a lot stronger than we give her credit for. Yeah. And so are you. That’s a lovely sentiment. Why are you looping me in with that? Because sometimes things can get… conflicted. And you are fiercely loyal and protective to the people that you love. But in the end, you have to be just as fiercely loyal and protective to yourself. And I believe that you will. You believe I-I will what, sam? Uh, well, when push comes to shove, I believe that you will do the right thing. Even if it comes at a cost to sonny.

Alright, so the reason your “minecraft” log-in has been so glitchy is because of, well, cookies.

[ Gasps ] I warned you not to eat over your keyboard. -I don’T. -Oh, that’s interesting. Why is there all this dried frosting caked around the touchpad? Okay, well, the cookies I’m talking about are more of a cyber variety. I suspect james has accumulated an ungodly amount of those pesky website cookies, which can slow down your processor. But I’ve run a quick cleanup app, and voil…

[ Beeping ] You’re back in business, bud. -[ Laughs ] -Thanks. You’re the best. -Ohh! -Thanks, dad.

[ Maxie clears throat ] Oh. Maxie, you’re home! Hi, honey! We were so engrossed with spinelli’s wizardry, we didn’t hear you come in. Clearly. Yeah, I tried for two hours to figure out what was wrong with the computer. Dad fixed it in, like, 10 minutes, the same as he did that one night that I was writing a paper and the computer crashed and I thought I lost it, but he saved it. Yeah. Your dad is a tech genius. There’s no question about that. Yeah, and he’s super-handy to have around. Yeah, it was great when he lived here. Can’t you move back in? Pl-e-e-ease? Don’t worry about kristina. I mean, she’s still a bit fragile, but she’s doing better. She’s fragile? Why? You were just talking about the wedding. I thought you knew. Okay. Seems we just got our wires crossed. What? I-I think you should talk to her about it. Oh, but — but you’re right here. That’s not my business. If kristina wants to tell you everything, that’s up to her. Well, but — and you just said she’s fragile, so kris might interpret any well-meaning questions I might ask as an interrogation, and that would really blow things up between us, so… okay. Okay. Um… her father went after dex. And kristina saw the whole thing.

[ Sighs ] She called me from the ladies’ room hysterical, sobbing, hyperventilating. At first, I was afraid it was the baby, but it wasn’T. Okay? I-in fact, I suggested that we go to the E.R., But kristina didn’t want to. She just needed to calm down. I just caught a glimpse of dex’s face inside. He looks really banged up. I mean, if kristina saw that, no wonder she’s so upset. Well, she was, but… she’s doing fine now. Really. Okay. Um… yeah. Thank you. Thanks for letting me know. Blaze: Bye. Obviously you know about what happened at the wedding, so who told you? Sonny. He stopped by looking for dante, and he gave me his version of the story. That’s why dante’s been blowing up my phone. You haven’t spoken to dante? I’ve been busy! What, busy avoiding his phone calls? Dante is worried about you, kristina. And so am I. Wait. You just got finished telling me how strong you think I am.

[Chuckling] Wow. Wow. You were actually listening to me. Sam. Strong people hurt, too. And I’m just worried that you’re carrying this weight about what to do with sonny, and it’s wearing on you. Sam, it’s already been decided. Dex isn’t filing charges. Oh. Well, how do you feel about that? How do I feel about that? How do I feel that my dad isn’t potentially facing prison? Well, yeah, that…and the fact that he hurt dex and isn’t gonna have to face any consequences. You know, look, at the end of the day, he has to face himself. And he — he knows what he did, and he knows that i know what he did. So… it’s wrong!

[ Door opens ] It’s — hi. Kristina: Hi! Hi, girls. Not a word to mom.

[ Door closes ] Hey, mom. I’m so sorry about gregory. Oh. Uh…

[ Chuckles ] Thank you. Sam: How are you doing? I’m, uh — I’m okay. Um… you didn’t have to upend your day and come over here. But I’m glad you did. We brought lunch. How sweet. That’s sweet. How was albany? Um, how about we talk about that when molly gets here? You look pale. Me? No. That’s ’cause she stays out of the sun. You should try it sometime. She’s fine. Are you doing okay, man? Up a few stitches, down a deductible.

[ Sighs ] I guess it looks like it could have been worse. Yeah, thanks to jason, it wasn’T. I guess you have a decision to make. It’s already made. I’m not filing charges. Really? You’re not? Why not? Partly for kristina. She was a witness. And I’m not gonna put her through that, with the baby and all. I can’t do that to her… even though she told me not to back off for her sake. She did? Kristina’s always been a friend to me. What kind of a friend would I be if I made her testify against her father? So, you said part of the reason was kristina. What’s the other part? Best case scenario, sonny gets a year and some change behind bars. That’s after a bitter court battle where I end up getting dragged through the mud. So is it worth it? And why bother for such little benefit? Sonny would still have reach. He’d still probably run his organization. And on his release, he’d have me killed… assuming he even waited that long. I’m not wasting my breath sharing my thoughts with you. And you’re not gonna listen anyway. Maybe not, but you can get it off your chest. We used to be honest with each other, sonny. You were my stepfather. You were there for me when oscar died. You were there for everyone with mike. But you’re not that person anymore. You think that you can do whatever you want to anyone at any time, and you never have to pay for it. You’re very young, josslyn. You don’t know what I’ve been through. I know that you should be in jail for what you did to dex. You should be locked up praying that all of your prior crimes don’t get diane laughed out of court. I bet you’re not even grateful to dex. Grateful for what? For him trying to rat me out to the pcpd?! Sonny! You attacked dex unprovoked. You threatened to kill him! But you lucked out, again, because dex isn’t pressing charges. Why’d he back off? Out of concern for the people that you so willingly shoved aside. He did it for your kids.

You’d be taking mcconkey’s seat and he — and he’s — he’s backing you? Well, he’s, um, retiring, and he thought I’d make a good candidate. He came to drew and proposed it to him. Isn’t that amazing? Yeah. No, it is, it is. I just — I had no idea you were interested in politics, drew. I’m not disinterested. I mean, obviously I’ve never thought about running for office until he pitched it to me. Well, mcconkey made the right call. I’d vote for you. What about you? I value your opinion. I want to hear it. I mean, obviously, there’d be implications for aurora.

[ Sighs ] Okay. Um… well, off the top of my head… I think that it’s a dicey time to split focus with the launch of the wellness division. Curtis at the helm of wellness is the right choice, but he lacks c-suite experience, and we were counting on your supervision there. I mean, he’d catch on. I’m not worried about it. Plus, you could help with that. Drew, if you’re elected, you’re gonna have to put your stock into a blind trust, and you know the sec is gonna be watching. No doubt about it. And you’ll have to take time away from the company, robbing aurora of your vision and guidance. All valid points. Look. I’m sorry. You asked. If you were hoping for a blanket endorsement, I-I’m sorry. I can’t — I can’t give it to you. So, so sorry. Gregory was such an amazing guy. Yeah. It’s hard to believe he’s gone. You know? Yeah. I mean, you know, I knew he had als, and I know what that meant. And I knew that he was declining, but I-I just didn’t expect it this way this soon. I mean, we just jumped out of a plane together!

[ Laughter ] Well, we all know the parachute opened and the jump worked. How about the appeal? Alexis: How about the appeal? That bad? Wasn’t good. Turns out that neil’s brother, fergus byrne, sat on the disciplinary committee when my case first came up. Neil’s brother? That’s a massive conflict of interest. Yeah, that’s what we said. And we gave a strong argument. We fought hard, and he fought dirty. H-he put a tainted take on everything I said. Well, hopefully the judges will see right through that. You know, I don’t think the odds are very good. So I’m gonna prepare myself for a ruling against me. How long will that take? 30 days. A month. That long? They’re really gonna make you wait that whole time? Hey, you were right to fight. However this goes, I’m proud of you for standing up for yourself and making the appeal. Yeah, well, at least we know who turned me in for perjury. Ava jerome. Sam: What? I was with dex when michael asked him to reconsider turning you in. Michael? Yes, michael. Your son. The one that you had renounced. Kristina was such a wreck over what might happen to you that she went to michael and she asked him to “fix it,” which meant going to dex, and that’s what michael did. So, what? I’m supposed to be grateful to michael?

[ Chuckles ] No. That would mean that you can see the good in other people instead of focusing on yourself, so, no, I don’t expect you to be grateful. Just know that if you lift your hand against dex again, the only reason you can is because the man you wanted dead had the grace to let you go. Sonny came to me and told me what happened.

His version of the story. At least that’s how I found out. I see. I told him I wasn’t gonna step in. So I’m not here on his behalf. Didn’t think you were. But I also didn’t arrest him, either. The least I thought I could do was warn him, try and make him understand the gravity of the situation, that if something had happened to you or something does happen to you, he’s the one we’re coming looking for. Think it made a difference? I don’t know. In the past, when I’ve had these conversations with my father, they have deterred him, but right now I don’t know — I don’t know what’s going on. He’s got his temper, sure, but he never openly flouted the law. And right now he’s acting like he’s untouchable. So I don’t know. I guess I misjudged my father… like I misjudged you.

Ava? Of all people? S-she murdered connie, she sabotaged morgan, and — and she goes to the bar and tries to get your license taken away for essentially what amounts to a white lie? Ava’s vicious and ruthless, but she’s smart. She knew how to hit you where it would hurt you the most. I mean, as far as I’m concerned, she took away your law license. Well, she had help. Fergus byrne. That guy should have been disbarred. Not you. No kidding. We pointed out the conflict of interest, and I don’t know that if it swayed the judges or not — I hope so — but at least it’s on the record. Mom, I’m proud that you stood up for yourself. Yeah, and when the outcome we want isn’t guaranteed.

[ Cellphone chimes ] Oh. It’s dante. I-I gotta handle this. Hey. Why don’t you let me drive you there? Okay? Thank you for coming by. You girls always make me feel better. -Love you. -Love you, too. -I love you, mom. -Alright. -I’ll see you soon. -Alright, honey. Alexis: Be careful. Sam: You know we will. -Bye. -Bye.

[ Door closes ] Okay. So what’s up? You didn’t even touch your food. Oh. Um… I don’t want you to worry that I’m gonna start drinking. Alright? I’m sober. Resolutely so. I’m glad to hear you say that. And I meant what I said. I’m really, really proud of you. I’m sorry. I just have a lot on my mind. What’s on your mind? No. Today’s not about me. No. Today’s about us. So, again, what’s on your mind? How did kristina seem to you just now? Pale. Subdued. Why? Because apparently sonny lost it and assaulted somebody at the wedding right in front of her. I’ve been avoiding you at the station because I didn’t want people thinking I was indirectly trying to pressure you to protect sonny. Well, I’ve been avoiding you, too. To be clear, I never felt any kind of pressure from you. I will admit, I was a little worried when you asked to meet with me today.

[ Chuckles ] Yeah. But the problem is, by giving distance, I’m also probably making you think I doubt you as a cop — and I don’T. I think it’s pretty cool you’re trying to turn your life around. That’s all I’m out to do. I should have never gotten tangled up with sonny. Working for him was turning me into someone that I never — never meant to be. I just want to put that behind me. I want to… do better and be better. Earn a badge and be worthy of it. That’s good. That’s good to hear. Look. I appreciate you. You helped save my life. And I am grateful that you aren’t pressing charges, mainly for kristina. Look, I’ve witnessed how much sonny loves his kids. He’s probably shaken up about letting kristina down. Ahh. I don’t know, man. I used to think that, but right now… right now I just don’t know. James, um, whose idea was it for you to ask spinelli to move back in? Was it georgie’s or grandma’s? It was my idea. Georgie: But it’s a good one, and I’m here for it. Please, dad. Move back in. We love having you around, and you’re really helpful around the house.

[ Gasps ] Good point.

[ Gasps ] O-okay. Who wants ice cream? Come on! Let’s, uh, go find a treat! Follow me! Yeah, that’s grandma’s way of giving them time to talk. Felicia: After you.

[ Door closes ] I thought you were coming over for dinner. It’s a little early. Yeah, I was. And I hope to still stay. Um, I don’t think georgie and james engineered my early arrival. I think the computer was truly buggy. Well, I-I’m glad it was. Glad? A cookie-fied laptop is no trifling matter. No, spinelli. I’m glad it was because it — it gives us a moment to talk. I didn’t want to say this in front of the kids, and I don’t want to put you on the spot, but… I miss having you here, too, and I would love it if you would move back in.

Michael, I thought you’d understand why it’s so important for drew to run. No, it’s okay, willow. I asked for michael’s opinion. I wanted to hear what he had to say. That’s what he has to say. And he’s pragmatic. He’s looking out for aurora. Looking out for me. This is what I need to hear. Mcconkey was already facing a real challenge from an opponent who’s had their ground game up and running for months. I mean, you’re — you’re late coming in. Drew has a name and his own money. His opponent will try and accuse drew of buying a congressional seat. Politics gets dirty. Opponents say anything. Yeah, speaking of — the opposition’s research is going to be daunting, so expect mudslinging that’s going to be very hard to shake off. I can handle that. And let’s not forget about mcconkey’s endorsement. That’ll only get drew so far. Look. Okay.

[ Sighs ] Worst case, you lose… and the wellness division’s roll-out is compromised and aurora is destabilized right when we were recovering from the stock inflation scandal. All sound arguments for why I shouldn’t run. You asked for my opinion. I just — I think you have more to lose than you do to win. I couldn’t disagree more. Josslyn: Blaze. Josslyn. How was your run? Ah. It was good. I had to let out some steam. Ha. I hear that. Nice seeing you. Good to see you. Hey, um, how’s kristina doing? She was doing better… until I let slip to molly about what happened between dex and sonny… and how kristina reacted. Molly is the last person kristina would want to worry about her. Welcome to the madness.

[ Exhales sharply ] I’m sorry that you’re pulled into it. Kristina’s worth it. I just… wish I had a better perspective about things weeks ago. And, in fact, I owe you an apology.

[ Scoffs ] For what? You were right about sonny. Blaze said that kristina witnessed sonny going after dex and just got all hysterical. And then I did some quiet checking with anna, and, yeah, sonny assaulted dex. I mean, apparently it would have been much worse if jason hadn’t pulled sonny off. And kristina witnessed the whole thing! It must have been terrifying for her. I imagine it was terrifying for dex, too, though he’s elected not to file charges, which is his own right. I can’t even worry about him right now. I’m just worried about kristina and the baby. She didn’t even call me! She hasn’t said a thing about it! If I hadn’t run into blaze, I wouldn’t know that she had some meltdown in the ladies’ room! She didn’t mention it to me. I-I’m sure she didn’t because she worried that I had too much going on. I don’t know if kristina is keeping quiet because I’m the A.D.A. Or because she doesn’t want me hovering, which, of course, is my natural instinct because she’s my sister and she’s carrying our baby! And now I’m tiptoeing around her boundaries. But what about mine? I mean, don’t I have a right to know about her emotional and physical state?! I understand. She should have told you. No I can’t even bring it up to her without risking setting her off, and so now I’m in this horrible position of having to choose whether to tell tj or hide it from tj, knowing full well that he will go straight to kristina if he knows, which will absolutely set her off, so what am i supposed to do? Sam said dad came looking for you yesterday, so I assume that’s why you wanted to talk to me? Yeah, he did, but that’s not why I’m here. I’m here for you — because you’re my sister and I love you. Sorry. I’ve just… been kind of a mess since the wedding. Well, yeah. You — nobody should be subjected to that. You shouldn’t have witnessed something like that. Dad tracked me down after, and he tried to justify it, but anything he said or ever says is never gonna make me forget that image. I-I just — he was hitting dex, and — and the blood was just, like, dripping down his face. And then he was yelling at dex that he was going to kill him — and jason. It was awful. Look. Dex is okay. I just talked to him. Well, I’m not okay. I’m all over the place. All I kept thinking about at first was just like, “this can’t be happening. This can’t be happening.” And then I was looking at him and I just kept thinking, “that can’t be my dad.” But it was. And look. I know that my dad has flaws. And I know that he’s, you know, hurt people, but not like that. Not, like, directly, physically like… or maybe he has. I don’t know. I don’t know. Just — the man that I saw, he was so ugly and — and full of rage and… I don’t know, dante. It was like he was, like, wearing a mask or something. Or maybe he’s been wearing a mask this whole time whenever he’s with me.

[ Sighs ] Look. It’s, um… it’s a complicated situation. But you’ve seen him like that before, haven’t you? When he shot you. Uh, no. Actually, he was quite the opposite. He was like a stone. Unemotional. It was like… shooting me was nothing. Except it wasn’t on purpose. It was an accident, right? T-that’s why he didn’t go to jail. Uh, no. No. I lied about that.

I never should have kicked you out. I overreacted. You were wonderful. The kids really miss you being here, and so do I. Will — will you move back in? I can’t believe I’m saying this, um, but I must respectfully and regretfully decline. Maxie… I love you. I don’t want to be roommates. I-I want to… I want us to be partners. I want to be a couple. Well, I do, too. Okay, well, then, how would this work? Would we — would we share a bedroom? I mean… are you ready for that? Uh, no, not yet, but I am open to that in the future. It’s just…the kids. Yes! No, no. Right. Georgie’s at the age where it could be awkward. Look, spinelli. I-I do want to be a couple, but I think we need to take things slowly. I mean, can’t we just be roommates for now? You can move back in — into the guest room. Or would that be too difficult if we’re not… “together, together”? Relax. I just want to talk to you. How’d you find me? You probably know by now I can find anybody I want to. You gonna invite me to sit down? I’m unarmed! I’m alone! You wanna frisk me? If this is an ambush and you came to finish the job, I won’t take it lying down. Noted. I heard you opted to keep what happened… in-house. I’m not in your house. Not anymore. No, I’m not filing charges, but I didn’t do it to help you. I did it to help kristina. It would have been bad for her. I appreciate that. That’s why I’m here. I just want to let you know that… as far as my part… this is over. Let’s just sit here and put our emotions on the side and put our lawyer caps on, okay? Mm-hmm. What’s the primary goal? A healthy baby. And how do we accomplish that? With a calm and centered kristina. And how are you going to assist in that? By not confronting her.

[ Groans ] Don’t rile her. What? So just tread lightly? Treat kristina like a minefield keeping me from my baby? As you know, I didn’t know sonny was my father when I was working undercover. But I got to meet you guys. And I fell in love with all of you. I mean, michael the fixer, morgan the wise ass, and you — you’re the princess. I felt like we were all family even before we knew we were. And I wasn’t gonna take him away from you. And I didn’t want to take him away from me, either. It’s, uh… it’s really hard growing up without a father. I mean, I had a lot of family. Look. They were great. They made a lot of noise at my little league games, but I — I didn’t hear that one voice that I always wanted to hear. And in the playground and in the street when kids are saying all sorts of things about my mom because we didn’t know who my father was, like… look, I gave as many bloody noses as I got, but I’d always say something stupid like, “you guys are gonna get it when my dad shows up.” But, um… he never did. And after a while, I stopped kidding myself that he ever would. So when I woke up at G.H. With a bullet hole in my stomach and lulu told me I had a father… …I justified not turning him in. For his kids. For you. But I’m one of his kids, too, so I did it for me, too. Finding out I had a father, that was a gift, and I wasn’t gonna give it back, no matter who he was. So I did what I had to do to keep my dad out of prison. I know that dex is keeping quiet because of me. And, honestly, part of me feels relieved that I don’t have to testify. But the other part of me is scared that I’m making everything worse.

Waited years for you, maxie. Suppose I’ve always been waiting for you. So, yeah.

[ Chuckles ] I can wait. As long as needed. So… you’ll move in… and we will date. Nothing would delight me more than being here with my family.

[ Door opens ] Felicia: We’re back!

[ Laughter ] We got you rocky road and birthday cake. What?! Those are your favorites, right? Yes! Yes, yes, yes! Dad, we’re bribing you. Please say you’re moving back in! I’m moving in.

[ Laughs ] Yay! Everyone is so tired of politics. Reason being, why bother? Why believe in someone? Most of the time. It’s ugly and people aren’t listening to each other, any more than the politicians are listening to the people. And congressman mcconkey was one of the rare ones, who actually tried to govern fairly. He didn’t suffer fools gladly, and he has hand-selected drew because he recognizes drew’s potential, his desire to make a difference, to serve the people. He’s a decorated war hero who has already served our country, a man of determination and strong character who can more than withstand any bad press the opposition might throw at him. And as for his wealth, no need to shy away from it because it’s actually proof that drew won’t have special-interest groups behind the scenes pulling the strings. And as for aurora, michael, you know you can handle it without drew. You’ve done it before. Whatever expansions are on the horizon, you’ll manage them. Because right now drew has something more important to do. Contributing to a functioning government is worth a few sacrifices. Wow. Maybe I should get you to be my campaign manager. I would say yes, but I want you to have someone who knows what they’re doing. Well, I gotta say, uh, you have convinced me. Yeah. Me too. I mean, I was on the fence, but… willow, you made me realize that I have an opportunity to make things better. And if I turn it down, it’s like I’m skipping out on my duty, and I can’t do that. So if I do this, I’m gonna need some help from you two. Yeah, you got it. We’re all-in. Yeah. Congressman cain. Hm. Aside from likening yoursister to an explosive device, you’re on the right track. Just tread lightly. All I can do now, I suppose. And I will serve as a buffer between her and sonny. No, mom, I don’t want you getting involved with sonny now. Trust me. I can handle him. I’m concerned about my girls. One needs to calm down, and the other needs to get some rest, ’cause you’re gonna need all your energy when you become a mom. I can handle anything if it means keeping this baby healthy. Yeah. And in a couple of months, I will not need to be relying on kristina anymore. When this baby comes, I am going to keep kristina and her drama far away. This is not on you. No. It’s not. This is on sonny. Okay, but what about tomorrow or the next day or the next year, or the next time that he does something like this? Then it is on me because I didn’t stand up and stop him when I had the chance. Okay. If that’s the way you want to be about it. If it’s gonna be on you… then it’s gonna be on me, too. I thought you were way out of line.

[ Chuckles ] Now I see you were just trying to warn kristina, make her see her father for who he is. I see how kristina could have illusions about sonny. But now the blinders are off… and she’s seen what he’s capable of with her own eyes. And a part of me really wishes she hadn’T… and that she was still safe in those illusions. It’s ironic, isn’t it? I’ll see you. This thing between us, this bad blood. It’s over. Just like that? You’re a distraction. A distraction I don’t need. I got more important things to deal with. You’re not one to back off a grudge. You don’t know me as well as you think you know me. As a matter of fact, I don’t — I don’t even want you to think about me at all. Please. You want to be a cop. Be a cop. You’re not worth my time and energy. You’re nothing to me now. For your sake… keep it that way.

On the next “General Hospital” —

Days of Our Lives Update


Days of Our Lives logo

Update written by Joseph

Melinda packs a box of EJ’s personal belongings from the district attorney’s office. Stefan arrives and says he’s surprised EJ left things there. Melinda says she was going to send them via messenger but since Stefan’s there, he can deliver them to his brother. Melinda then asks if she can help him with something. Stefan says he actually came by to congratulate her. Melinda says she can’t say that felt entirely genuine. Stefan asks why not since he helped push EJ out and is part of the reason she got the job. Melinda points out that he’s also a DiMera and says she lost the job once so she has no intention of letting it go again. Melinda warns Stefan that if he even thinks about doing to her what he did to EJ, he will find a very dangerous enemy.

Bonnie enters the living room of the Kiriakis Mansion where Maggie hugs her and says it feels like it’s been forever as she asks where she has been. Bonnie says she’s just been lying low and talks about how it’s been at the mansion, commenting on Maggie being generous to let the Hortons move in. Maggie says it was lively. Bonnie calls it peace and quiet at last with just Maggie and Konstantin and her and Justin having the place to themselves. Alex and Theresa then arrive.

EJ joins Nicole in the living room of the DiMera Mansion and asks how their baby boy is doing. Nicole calls him perfect. EJ talks about being hardly able to believe their son is alive. Nicole calls it the answer to their prayers. EJ points out that Nicole knew it all along. Nicole recalls feeling it in her heart. EJ says he will forever be sorry for not believing her and asks if she can ever forgive him. Nicole assures that she does since EJ couldn’t have known and that she had a connection just because she carried Jude inside of her. Nicole says it’s not EJ’s fault and there’s only one person to blame for what happened.

Eric and Rafe head inside to Eric’s apartment and Sloan is gone. Rafe asks if the place was like this when he left. Eric says no and goes to check the bedroom. Eric returns and notes that all her things are gone. Rafe then finds the necklace with Jude’s birthstone that Eric gave Sloan for Mother’s Day. Eric guesses that Sloan took off and can’t believe she just left. Rafe says she has to know that running will just make her situation worse. Rafe assures they will find her. Rafe then makes a call to put out an APB on Sloan Peterson.

Maggie tells Alex and Theresa that she wasn’t expecting them so soon. Alex remarks that he didn’t know they need an appointment to walk in to their home. Bonnie is surprised to learn that they are moving in. Maggie questions Alex not telling Justin. Alex says they weren’t able to connect but it shouldn’t be a surprise. Bonnie talks about how Justin has missed Alex so she’s sure he will be thrilled to be under the same roof. Alex mentions that he will be pretty busy but he’s sure they will connect soon. Maggie asks where their things are. Alex says movers are on the way so they should probably let Henderson know. Theresa thanks Maggie for her hospitality and says it means so much. Maggie tells her that she’s so happy she will be living there and hugs her.

Stefan tells Melinda that he doesn’t want to get off on the wrong foot as his only interest is proving his wife is innocent of a murder she didn’t commit. Stefan says EJ had little interest in righting that wrong. Melinda says she’s just getting settled back in to the job and hasn’t looked in to any cases. Stefan just wants Melinda to follow the law. Melinda asks out of curiosity why EJ didn’t help him. Stefan responds that EJ had his own personal agenda, but he believes Melinda is an honorable public servant and it could curry favor with Rafe. Melinda points out that she does not work for Rafe. Stefan thinks it would be quite a start for her to bring justice to Li’s real killer. Melinda repeats that she hasn’t had a chance to look at the files yet. Stefan asks if she could look it over now and says he’s sure that she will find the new evidence that Rafe found is compelling and overwhelming. Melinda gives in and says she thinks she remembers seeing the file around somewhere which she then finds. Stefan asks if that means she will review it.

Rafe says on the phone to let him know when someone finds Sloan and he wants updates every 30 minutes as he hangs up. Eric argues that this doesn’t make sense since Sloan left her passport, driver’s license, and her keys. Rafe says she obviously left in a hurry which leads him to believe that she would have left a clue. Rafe assures that he has officers at the airport and bus stations. Eric declares that he just wants him to find her so this can be over with. Rafe assures that they will and asks when Eric last saw Sloan. Eric assumes she left after he took Jude to Nicole so it’s been maybe a couple of hours. Rafe assures that the Salem PD will explore every avenue they have.

Nicole complains to EJ that they will never get back the time that Sloan took from them and she knows holding Jude will make things better, but she can’t stop thinking about what they lost and how they suffered. EJ encourages that Jude will heal them and it will just take time. Nicole says she can’t stop thinking about all the questions she has about the details of that night. EJ calls it confusing to say the least. Nicole says after the accident, she trusted Dimitri to take her baby to the hospital because saving him was all that mattered but they got there and no one knew what was going on. EJ thinks they were all just in shock and recalls the doctor telling them that their baby had died and been accidentally cremated so they couldn’t even say goodbye. Nicole says that was awful and she thought she lost everything. Nicole never thought her life would be whole again but EJ encourages that it is now. EJ says as far as how it all went down, Eric and Rafe will make sure that Sloan faces the consequences. Nicole asks what about the doctor and Dimitri since they owe them answers too. Nicole declares that she doesn’t think Sloan pulled this off by herself as she had to have had help.

Melinda looks over the file and calls it interesting reading as this has twists, turns, and a cliffhanger. Stefan assures her that every piece of evidence in the folder has been investigated and the bloody fingerprint on the black book was ran by Rafe himself. Melinda points out that Rafe is the brother of the accused and says she can’t take anything as fact until her office runs it’s own investigation. Stefan argues that she has to admit the evidence is in Gabi’s favor which Melinda questions. Melinda tells Stefan that Gabi was found guilty of a crime by a jury of her peers and as much as Stefan and Rafe want to paint her as innocent, that doesn’t make it true. Stefan questions if she’s going to review the case or if he needs to go over her head.

Alex informs Maggie that their plan is to move in to the East wing now that the Hortons are gone. Maggie says that Henderson is cleaning it out now. Alex says he’ll alert him to set up their rooms. Theresa questions him as she thought they were sharing a room. Alex calls it a massive space and says they’ll have their own rooms and share a room since there’s no more cramped apartment living and Theresa can have the giant walk-in closet she always dreamed of. Alex calls Theresa someone with the Kiriakis heir which Theresa questions. Alex points out that they haven’t really defined themselves and aren’t in to labels these days. Theresa thanks Maggie again as she and Alex exit together. Bonnie and Maggie question what that was all about.

EJ tells Nicole that there are so many lingering questions about that night and perhaps there always will be, but when he looks in to Jude’s eyes, nothing else matters. EJ says they need to count their blessings and focus on being the best parents they can be. Nicole says she knows and she’s trying, but every time she thinks of Sloan, she wants to wrap her hands around her neck. Nicole agrees that she can’t let her anger take away this moment. Nicole and EJ watch over Jude. Nicole talks about Jude needing a mom and how they’ve wasted enough time. Eric and Rafe then arrive and say they are sorry to interrupt. EJ asks if they’ve brought in Sloan but Rafe says no because she’s gone without a trace.

Bonnie tells Maggie that she just got off the phone with Justin, who was surprised to hear that Alex was moving back in. Bonnie says Justin will be happy to spend more time with Alex but voiced concerns about the corrosive nature of the Kiriakis fortune. Maggie shares that concern and is counting on Justin to be a good influence on Alex. Alex and Theresa return. Theresa talks about everything being right and never having a personal maid unpack her things. Alex says they will be joining them for dinner. Alex says he’s going to check out the stable and suggests to Theresa they can go for a swim later. Alex exits as Theresa remarks that she could really get used to this.

Melinda tells Stefan that she is not EJ or some toady from DiMera Enterprises, she is the district attorney and won’t be pushed around. Stefan argues that he wasn’t doing that and was attempting to apply pressure. Stefan says he is very anxious to bring his wife home. Melinda understands it must be terrible having her locked up away from him and her daughter. Stefan says they can right that wrong together. Stefan knows their past hasn’t always been pleasant but he needs her to know that he holds her and the office in the utmost respect. Melinda says she appreciates that. Stefan brings up Melinda saying she’s committed to making Salem a safer place which would include getting innocent women out of prison and killers off the street. Melinda explains that she has no personal issue with reopening the case as long as the facts check out, but they both know that only a judge can make that decision. Stefan asks if she’s willing to take it to court. Melinda points out that the court is awfully backed up at the moment. Stefan asks Melinda to just do her best and he will wait as long as it takes. Melinda responds that he might be waiting forever.

Nicole questions not knowing where Sloan went. Eric explains that she took off while he was bringing Jude over and feels he should’ve called the police first. Nicole encourages that Eric did the right thing. EJ agrees that Jude is their priority. EJ says they all hope that Sloan faces the consequences but that’s out of their hands. Rafe says they have put out an APB but so far, she has eluded them. Rafe doesn’t know what Sloan was thinking. Nicole thinks she didn’t want to face the consequences, so she ran like a coward. EJ questions why Rafe is here wasting valuable time when he could be out finding Sloan and bringing her in. Rafe reveals he actually has questions for EJ. EJ is not sure how he could be of assistance. Nicole asks how EJ would know anything about where Sloan is. Rafe points out that Sloan took off without her passport, driver’s license, even her credit cards and her car is still there, so she left with nothing. Nicole suggests maybe she plans to go in to hiding and chang her identity as she’s changed her name before. Rafe points out that no one was looking for her before and questions thinking she has the resources to stay in hiding. EJ admits he wouldn’t suppose so. EJ then flashes back to giving Sloan everything she needs to start a new life including a driver’s license, social security number, passport, and a flight ticket along with the details of an offshore account, funded to last her a lifetime. EJ reminded Sloan that she would never want for anything as long as she promised never to return to Salem or tell anyone that Eric is Jude’s biological father. Rafe then tells EJ that he tends to agree that Sloan was resourceful but not exactly flushed with cash. Eric doesn’t even know how she got that far. Rafe notes that Sloan’s resources are so limited but EJ’s are not.

Stefan asks Melinda why he’d have to wait forever for his wife’s case to be reopened when Melinda is sitting on evidence that an innocent woman is sitting in prison and asks if she wants justice. Melinda assures that she wants justice for Li Shin but admits that she believes he already got it. Stefan argues that his wife is not a killer which Melinda calls debatable. Melinda brings up the motive as everyone knows Gabi hated Li for blackmailing her for months. Melinda adds that Gil didn’t even know Li. Stefan calls him a known criminal which Melinda says Gabi is too. Stefan tells Melinda that she is wrong about this. Melinda supposes it’s possible and she’s open that things might change but what he has is not enough to reopen the case or free Gabi. Melinda says goodbye to Stefan and asks him to close the door on his way out.

Maggie tells Theresa to let her know if she needs anything as she wants her to feel at home. Theresa thanks her for being so kind and she’s so grateful that she can be somewhere where she doesn’t have to worry about rent. Maggie is glad to help and says she knows about her struggles and about Brady, Tate, and her career. Maggie hopes Theresa takes this time to figure out what she wants to do next. Bonnie remarks that Alex seems to know exactly what he wants to do next. Theresa calls him so confident while Bonnie points out that he’s also so rich. Maggie advises Theresa to be careful because money has a way of changing people. Maggie adds that she will speak with Alex about a family matter that needs to be addressed, so she exits. Bonnie tells Theresa that she reminds her of herself since when she first walked in, she had her eyes on the Kiriakis cash too and tried to marry Victor to get it, but it’s different with Justin. Theresa asks if she’s accusing her of being a gold digger. Bonnie remarks that there’s nothing wrong with marrying a man and his money as long as you’re not conning someone like Konstantin, who she advises Theresa to stay away from. Bonnie adds that as far as she’s concerned, as long as Theresa loves Alex as much as she loves his money then she should go for it.

EJ questions what his resources have to do with Sloan’s escape. Nicole questions what Rafe is asking. Rafe explains that he’s just saying the DiMeras have access to more funds than Sloan or even the police department could reach. Eric guesses Rafe is thinking someone DiMera-like helped Sloan disappear. Nicole still doesn’t understand. Rafe suggests that if they want Sloan found, EJ should reach out to his contacts who might have knowledge on her disappearance. EJ asks if Rafe wants their help in case it goes beyond the scope of the law. Rafe says he didn’t say that but would like some answers. Nicole says whatever he needs while EJ agrees to make some calls. Rafe says he needs to get back to the station and offers Eric a ride. Nicole stops Eric and asks if he wants to say hi to Jude but Eric doesn’t want to wake him up. Eric then exits with Rafe. Rafe asks if Eric is alright. Eric says yeah but then admits he’s not. Rafe knows it’s hard. Eric responds that Jude is where he’s supposed to be. Rafe tells Eric that he felt that pain when he had to turn David over after raising him for months. Eric says it doesn’t feel real as Jude feels like his son. Rafe says it will feel that way for awhile. Rafe encourages that he’s been through it and he wants Eric to know he’s here for whatever he needs. Eric says he appreciates that. Rafe adds that he hated being told this all the time, but it’s true that it will get better over time.

Nicole tells EJ that he’s right that she cannot give any more of this energy to Sloan and she will get what she deserves while they need to focus on Jude. EJ is glad to hear her say that because they have a lot of work to do, starting with rebuilding the nursery. Nicole thanks EJ. EJ says anything to make Jude’s transition as smooth as possible. EJ then brings up that they do need to talk about her job. Nicole admits she hasn’t really thought about it. EJ urges Nicole to be honest with herself about what she wants. Nicole admits she can’t really see herself leaving Jude right now which EJ had a feeling she would say. Nicole agrees to talk to Chad about maternity leave. EJ says he knows Nicole loves her job, but she needs to take advantage of this happy time. Nicole says she will and she feels so lucky but also a little guilty because now she has everything and Eric lost everything when he’s wanted to be a father for so long and has had so many disappointments while now this child has been ripped away from him. EJ states that he feels for Eric, but this is their son while Eric was misled and duped. EJ says the happiness they are experiencing now should have been theirs all along.

Alex goes back in to the Kiriakis Mansion and complains to Maggie that the stables looked horrible and are in need of renovation, questioning when she last had someone inspect out there. Maggie admits she can’t say for sure. Alex informs her that he has an architect to come up with a whole new plan and build it from scratch. Alex adds that he can get a Titan construction crew to get started right away. Maggie tells him that there will be no construction on the grounds until after the weddings. Alex questions that being plural. Maggie informs him that Sarah and Xander are engaged and calls it wonderful. Alex hopes he and Theresa will be invited to the wedding since they are family and they know Victor would want everyone to get along.

Rafe goes to Melinda’s office. Melinda asks if Rafe is here to talk about his sister. Rafe says not yet but promises they will have that conversation very soon. Rafe informs Melinda that he’s here to talk about the disappearance of Sloan Peterson.

Maggie tells Alex that they are family and she thinks they can find a way to co-exist in the house because that’s what family does, but she wants to be clear about their boundaries. Maggie tells Alex that she’s not going to roll over for his every wish because he’s the Kiriakis heir. Maggie promises that Victor wouldn’t want Alex disrespecting her or anyone he cared about. Alex asks if that’s a warning. Maggie says no and that she just has limits. Alex responds that he has ideas about the house and the staff, declaring that he is the future of the family and is going to take it in to the modern world. Alex warns that he’s not going to hold back just because it might hurt her feelings. Maggie asks if he thinks this is all about her feelings. Alex asks what else it would be. Maggie talks about Alex loving being a Kiriakis with the power and admits she got caught up in it before too, but there’s more to it than a name. Alex asks if she’s saying she doesn’t think he understands what it means to be Victor’s son. Maggie thinks he’s going to find a great deal of sacrifice comes along with it and unless he’s ready, he’s just playing at being an heir as she walks away.

Melinda questions Rafe saying Sloan disappeared. Rafe reveals that Sloan left her apartment, took nothing with her, and vanished. Melinda thinks back to arguing with Sloan that she couldn’t go on the run with Jude and that EJ would help her disappear. Melinda then asks Rafe why she would do that. Rafe responds that she got caught. Melinda questions what he means and asks if she took Jude. Rafe says it’s interesting that she mentions Jude since he’s the reason she took off. Melinda claims she doesn’t understand. Rafe questions Melinda saying she knows nothing about the baby switch. Melinda pretends to be oblivious. Rafe explains that Sloan confessed to Eric about the adoption falling through but instead of telling Eric the truth, Sloan faked the death of Nicole and EJ’s baby so she could take him and raise him as their own. Melinda argues that there’s no way Sloan would do that. Rafe points out that Melinda helped arrange the adoption and questions her expecting him to believe that she knew nothing about this. Melinda claims not to and asks if Sloan said that she did. Rafe responds that Eric didn’t say Sloan mentioned her, but he has so many questions about this whole thing. Melinda says she hopes he finds Sloan soon. Rafe says he does too and hopes that he can trust Melinda to see this through, since as district attorney, they need to be on the same side. Melinda responds that she is on the side of justice for all who deserve it.

Stefan storms in to the DiMera Mansion. EJ and Nicole ask him not to slam the door. Stefan complains about EJ not reopening Gabi’s case when he asked him to, then notices Jude and questions if they are babysitting. Nicole then reveals to Stefan that this is their son which he questions. EJ repeats that Jude is their son. Stefan doesn’t understand. EJ explains that Sloan stole their baby and tried to play him off as her and Eric’s adopted child. Stefan asks how the hell she did that. Nicole calls that a good question. Stefan asks if Sloan just decided to bring him back. Nicole explains that Eric learned the truth and brought Jude to them. Stefan says he can’t believe it but he’s so happy for them. EJ and Nicole thank him. Stefan talks about seeing how badly they suffered when they thought they lost their child. Stefan remarks that no one has the right to break a family apart. EJ declares that sometimes, the universe just makes things right and shows them that miracles do happen.

Eric returns home to an empty apartment and picks up some of Jude’s old things. Eric sits down with his phone and looks at an old photo of Jude with tears in his eyes.

Stefan went to see Melinda. He wanted to congratulate her on her new job. Melinda wasn’t sure how to react, but she warned him that she would make him pay if he tried to get rid of her the way he did EJ. At the Kiriakis mansion, Bonnie and Maggie talked about the house being quiet. While they were talking, Alex and Theresa came in. Alex told Bonnie and Maggie they were moving in the mansion together. Bonnie was shocked that they were moving in together since he didn’t tell Justin. Maggie was happy that Theresa was there. EJ asked Nicole to forgive him for not believing her about their son being alive. She said there was only one person to blame. Nicole thought Nicole couldn’t have done it herself. She thought someone helped Sloan. Rafe put out an APB on Sloan. Eric saw Sloan’s passport and keys on the desk. Rafe said that meant Sloan left in a hurry. He told Eric that the police would use their resources to find Sloan. Stefan asked Melinda about Li’s murder case. She read the evidence but let him know she wouldn’t be pushed around. Stefan said he wanted to bring his wife home. Melinda said it might take a long time to bring the case to the judge. She said she didn’t believe Gabi was innocent.

Theresa was shocked that Alex set up separate rooms for them at the Kiriakis mansion. He said he wasn’t ready to define what they were to each other. He took her to her room. While Bonnie talked to Maggie, she wondered what was going on between them. When Bonnie and Theresa were alone, she told Theresa about the money she saw when she first got involved with the Kiriakis’. She encouraged Theresa to go after what she wanted. Bonnie wondered if Theresa loved Alex as much as she loved the money. EJ told Nicole the only thing that mattered was getting their son back. She decided not to let her anger ruin the moment. Rafe and Eric went to the DiMera mansion to let EJ and Nicole know that Sloan was gone. Rafe wondered if Sloan had money to help her get away since she didn’t have her ID, passport, or credit cards. EJ didn’t think she had any help. He flashed back to his conversation with Sloan. Rafe said Sloan didn’t have the resources, but EJ did. He asked if EJ could reach out to his connections to find out who helped Sloan. EJ said he would make some calls. Nicole asked Eric if he wanted to say hi to Jude, but he didn’t want to wake him.

Recap written by Michele and Cheryl

Rafe went to Black Patch with a file on Clyde’s book. He hoped John and Steve could get the ISA to decode the book. Rafe thought the outside of the book could be the key to Gabi getting out of prison for Li’s murder. Rafe thought Gil was the one who killed Li. Harris arrived at the pub. Ava wanted to unbutton his uniform, but he wanted to focus on finding Clyde. She told him about her theory that Gil killed Li while looking for her. Ava didn’t want to tell Wendy and her family that Li died because of her. They had closure and she had to open up old wounds. Nicole wanted Eric to explain how Jude could be her son with EJ. EJ pretended to be concerned. Eric told them about Sloan’s confession. She remembered the first time she held Jude. She realized that she had a feeling he was her son. Eric looked at her with tears in her eyes. He apologized for everything, but Nicole told him that he was a victim too. She blamed Sloan for everything. Nicole wanted her arrested. EJ thought there was plenty of time for that. As Nicole went off about Sloan, Holly arrived. She found out that Jude was Nicole’s son. After Rafe left, Steve asked John how far they would go to get Clyde out of their lives. He wanted to take charge in Clyde’s case while John focused on Konstantin. John wondered if there was something he needed to know. Steve wanted to keep a close eye on Ava. He thought she was getting close to him. Steve thought about Ava’s threat to take care of Clyde permanently. John told him about Maggie’s plan to make it look like Konstantin was embezzling money from Titan.

Harris told Ava that his friends didn’t decode the book yet. He had encrypted images for her to send to him. As soon as Clyde opened the images, they would know his location. He wanted to check in with Rafe. Harris went to see Rafe and asked for more time off. Rafe couldn’t give it to him because they have a lot of cases. Harris said he was leaving anyway. Rafe wanted to know if he was okay, and he said he was. Rafe allowed him the time and hoped he had a job waiting for him when he got back. Holly loved the idea of Jude being her brother. She realized that Eric lost his son. Nicole apologized to Eric, but he said it wasn’t about him. He wanted them to be happy. Eric planned to make Sloan pay for what she did. Nicole asked him if he wanted to hold Jude before he left. Eric took him and promised to love him. He gave him back to Nicole. John warned Steve to be careful with Clyde. He wanted to see things through as partners and brothers. John said no one would drive a wedge between them. Nicole and Holly discussed her apology text. Holly didn’t mean the things she said to her. Nicole, Holly and EJ looked forward to their lives together. Rafe met with Eric outside of his apartment. He apologized for everything Sloan put him through. When they went inside, they saw the place was trashed. Everything was gone except the necklace Eric bought her for Mother’s Day. Eric realized that she left.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Steffy: Yes, we are very excited to be working with you next season. I’ll have my father contact you personally about the fitting. All right. Ciao, mariella. Buona notte.

Hope: You wanted to see me?

Steffy: I did. Ah, could you please close the door? I’ll just get right to the point. We need to discuss hope for the future.

Bill: Do you know who luna’s father is? Could it be me?

Poppy: Yes, bill. It could be you. You might be luna’s father. Here.

Bill: Thanks.

Poppy: You must be tired. You were tossing and turning all night.

Bill: Well, can you blame me after what you told me yesterday? Your daughter could be my daughter.

Rj: Are you serious? That you wish that, you know, bill spencer could be your dad?

Luna: Yeah, I think about it sometimes.

Rj: Even though your mom denied it?

Luna: I mean, my mom and bill had just started reconnecting when I first brought it up. And don’t get me wrong, okay? I– I think about us a lot more often. But I don’t know. I can’t help but find myself wondering about bill. What that would be like, especially now that they’ve gotten so much closer.

Brooke: Hm. I do miss seeing you at the office, eric.

Eric: Yeah, you better. I’m glad to hear it. Although, I am enjoying myself here, taking my time, healing and spending time with donna. Planning a trip here and there, and allowing ridge and steffy to run the business for the time being.

Brooke: And they do. I mean, ridge grumbles about not having enough time to design.

Eric: He does.

Brooke: We all know how important it is for the two of you to spend time together.

Eric: Yeah.

Donna: But quite frankly, sis, I think you should spend some more time at the office again.

Eric: Actually, I think that’s a really good idea. I mean, you’ve contributed a lot to our success.

Brooke: Oh, well, thank you. But like you, I have taken a step back.

Eric: If that’s what you wanna do, that’s fine. But, um, we can always use your input.

Brooke: Well, I do miss having an active role at the business.

Eric: You’re a legend in the business. You really are. I mean, the belief formula alone, let alone brooke’s bedroom and the first men’s line, all of them innovations that we couldn’t have done without.

Donna: Oh, he is so right. If you wanna get back there, you should just go for it.

Brooke: I’m not sure how steffy would feel about that.

Katie: Hello, hello.

Donna: Hello. Oh, my gosh, you got my message. Thank you for coming.

Eric: The house is full of logans. Very nice.

Katie: Isn’t it nice? Oh, and since you’re both here, I wanna share a little news. I stopped by bill’s yesterday and met the new woman in his life.

Donna: Anyone we know?

Katie: Luna’s mother, poppy.

Rj: I just didn’t realize you still wondered about bill being your father.

Luna: Yeah, sometimes. You know, if he could be or what he’d be like. I know, I know it’s stupid. My mom already said that bill isn’t my dad, but then again, she said that about every guy in her past, so.

Rj: I don’t understand. Why has your mom been so secretive about who your father is?

Bill: Luna could really be my daughter.

Poppy: Are you absolutely sure that you’re not upset?

Bill: Upset, no– I told you last night, I’m not upset. I’m– I’m surprised. I mean, I asked you before and you didn’t want me to know?

Poppy: I was afraid.

Bill: Afraid of what?

Poppy: You and I hadn’t been seeing each other very long, and then luna and I were at odds. There was just a lot to consider. I raised luna on my own. We were a team. That’s how I raised her. I’m an independent woman and I never needed a man. Or so I thought. Until you.

Hope: Well, I can run back to the design office so you can see our newest designs.

Steffy: No, no, no, you don’t have to do that.

Hope: I– I thought you said this was about hope for the future.

Steffy: Yes, it’s current iteration. Look, rj and zende, they are great designers, but the collection hasn’t been the same since thomas left, so…

Hope: Well, I don’t disagree, but, uh, thomas also left in large part due to your interference, steffy. I have active psoriatic arthritis.

Steffy: No, no, no, no, no. Don’t blame me for what happened between you and thomas.

Hope: Well, I wasn’t the one who told him to leave town with douglas.

Steffy: You’re the reason why thomas left.

Hope: You know how much I miss them and how difficult this has been for me. Having to be a mother halfway across the world, having to hear the change in thomas’s voice on the phone.

Steffy: I know you’re dealing with a lot. That’s why I delayed this conversation with you.

Hope: About hope for the future?

Steffy: Yes.

Hope: Okay, well, I’ve already had this discussion with ridge and carter, and they both assured me that I would have the company’s support during this transitory time.

Steffy: That was then, but as co-ceo, it’s my job–

Hope: Steffy, do I need to remind you that you essentially were the one who packed thomas’s bags and shipped him to another country? I understand that we need results, but results take time. But I’m putting together an entirely new creative team here, and I would really appreciate some patience and understanding, but honestly, when it comes to you, steffy, you’ve never wanted to give that to me. Gosh, I have put up with it for so long, but honestly, enough is enough, steffy. I’m not going to let you mess with my life anymore.

Brooke: So, bill and poppy have known each other over 20 years?

Donna: And you have never heard of her before?

Katie: Apparently, they were just together that one night, and then they lost contact with each other until they randomly bumped into each other again. I mean, I– I have a lot of questions, but it didn’t really seem like the time. They didn’t seem like they were expecting company, and I don’t know, bill seems quite taken with her.

Eric: We all think the world of luna.

Donna: And if she’s anything like her mother, poppy must be lovely too.

Brooke: Luna is very much her own person.

Donna: Yeah, I wonder– I wonder actually if– if luna is getting to know bill, because if– if bill and poppy are getting close like this, it would make sense for them all to want to get along.

Eric: I can’t imagine a man as full of himself as bill is wanting to have any role in luna’s life.

Luna: Yeah, I don’t know. Like, I– I thought that it’d be different when I got older, like when I finally became an adult, she’d tell me who my dad is, but she’s actually become more reluctant to talk about it.

Rj: Well, you told her it won’t change your relationship with her.

Luna: Yeah, but maybe she doesn’t believe me. Or maybe she’s afraid that it will. Sometimes, it felt like she didn’t want someone coming in. You know, she don’t want someone interfering with our little family.

Rj: You said she dated, right?

Luna: Yeah, but it was nothing serious. Like they were nice guys, but there was no commitment.

Rj: I mean, maybe that’s just not poppy’s thing.

Luna: Or maybe if it was the right guy, the guy that she truly loved and loved her back.

Rj: Someone like bill spencer?

Bill: I– I guess what I couldn’t wrap my head around yesterday, and I’m still having a hard time with it today, is you didn’t want me to be luna’s father?

Poppy: No, it wasn’t that.

Bill: But then– then what? Because you obviously didn’t feel like you could be honest with me.

Poppy: It’s not a simple yes or no answer for me, bill. All right? Luna’s paternity is a very complex and emotionally charged question for me. And when you asked me a while back, I just– I got overwhelmed thinking about the fallout. I’ve never loved a man. I’ve only ever loved my daughter. She’s my everything. And I’ve only ever been completely committed to her and only her.

Bill: And that’s commendable. But poppy, if– if you thought that I was luna’s father, I mean, I told you how happy that would make me, how proud I would be.

Poppy: Please try to understand that I didn’t tell you the truth because I wasn’t ready to face it. My sister, li, has berated me for most of my life, calling me an opportunist, a gold digger. And I can only imagine how many women have crawled out of the woodwork claiming that you were the father of their children. I didn’t want you to judge me or think that I was one of them.

Bill: I know that you’re not.

Poppy: I didn’t want to think about luna’s father and what his presence could do for the life that I had made for us… until you came back into my life. Until I fell for you. My dry eye’s made me a burning,

Steffy: Hope, why are we making this personal? This is a business meeting.

Hope: Hope for the future is personal to me.

Steffy: And normally, I’d be all for that. I love the passion. I love the energy. But what you’re doing right now, it’S…

Hope: I’m– I’m not going to back down when it comes to my line or my team.

Steffy: Hope, this industry isn’t patient. It’s all about what’s new, what’s next. We keep it moving.

Hope: And I understand that we have hit a rough patch, but I am confident that we will be able to move past it.

Steffy: Well, as co-ceo, I’m not confident of that at all.

Brooke: Well, it’s nice to know that eric’s taking his recovery serious.

Donna: Yeah, yeah, he just, uh, loves his trainer. He always comes back so invigorated and…

Katie: I’m glad he’s taking care of himself.

Donna: My god, I just love my honey bear so much and I just want him to be as healthy as possible, you know? I mean, I usually go with him, but my sisters are here.

Katie: Oh, well, we don’t wanna keep you.

Donna: Are you kidding me? I wanna know everything you know about bill and poppy.

Katie: I’ve already told you everything I know about bill and poppy.

Brooke: You know how bill raises his children, how he’s been raising will. Maybe you have a different perspective.

Katie: That he would wanna be a part of luna’s life? I mean, I don’t know. Bill loves his sons, and he’s fiercely protective of them, but I don’t think that extends beyond his family.

Donna: Yeah, I– I agree. I mean, I can’t see bill being involved in luna’s life. And, I mean, come on. I mean, he’s good with his boys, but other people’s children? I don’t think bill spencer’s gonna be involved with luna.

Brooke: Well, with everything going on in luna’s life lately, I think she would be even less interested in this new man that her mother’s seeing.

Luna: I know you’re not bill spencer’s biggest fan.

Rj: No, I’m not. Honestly, my whole family feels that way, luna, and for good reason.

Luna: Okay, well, I don’t know what bill was like in the past, but he’s been really good to my mom. And he’s been nothing but kind and sweet to me.

Rj: Really? Bill spencer? Sweet?

Luna: Like, there was this one time, um, he came to the apartment, and I had just gotten into an argument with my mom, and he was really understanding. And he told me what it’s like to be a parent, and how he wanted the best for his kids. I couldn’t help but think to myself, like, “what would my life be like if I had a dad like that?” Because that bill is exactly the kind of man that I’d want as my father.

Poppy: You know, I’m not afraid of rejection. I like myself the way I am.

Bill: Well, there’s a lot to like. And I saw that the first time we met. So confident.

Poppy: I thought I saw something in you too, bill. And what we shared that night, it was like nothing I’d ever felt before. And I thought you felt the same. But then…

Bill: But then you never heard from me again. I’m sorry, poppy. I can see how much I hurt you.

Poppy: Well, there’s no need to apologize now, right? What we’ve shared, and reconnecting like this, it’s been amazing. It’s everything I thought it could be, and more.

Bill: I agree. And that’s why if there’s even the slightest chance that luna could be my daughter, I need to know. We both need to know. Moving forward withnode-positive breast cancer.

Hope: Steffy, hope for the future is one of forrester’s most impactful lines, and zende and rj are talented designers. You’ve said so yourself.

Steffy: Yes, they are. They are the next generation of forrester creations, but they could be working on more lucrative projects.

Hope: Well, our sales have been wonderful up until this point.

Steffy: Up until this point. A high-concept line? That has a lot of overhead. Marketing, materials, charitable affiliations. Look, I just don’t see hope for the future as one of my visions anymore for this company.

Hope: Your vision? Look, my team will prove themselves, okay? We just need time.

Steffy: I think your time is up, hope. That’s why I wanted to speak to you one-on-one. I didn’t wanna blindside you. I’m thinking about cutting hope for the future.

Donna: So, now that eric is gone, tell us how you really feel.

Katie: I’m just as honest around eric as I am with you.

Brooke: You said you were surprised to see bill with poppy.

Katie: Yeah, I didn’t realize he was seeing anyone.

Brooke: How do you feel about that?

Katie: I didn’t expect him to live like a monk, brooke. And as I told bill, he doesn’t answer to me.

Brooke: Would you like him to?

Katie: Would I have liked him to tell me that he was seeing someone, poppy or whoever? Yes, I would have liked that because I thought we had that kind of relationship, but I don’t know. I– I will always love bill. You know, not just because he’s will’s father, but because we’ve meant a lot to each other and do I see a future with him? I don’t know. I do have to say though, luna’s mother, I’m not so sure about her.

Luna: I don’t know why I’m acting like this. I mean, it’s stupid to go on and on about bill being my father because he isn’T.

Bill: If luna is my daughter, I will stand by her and you. You will both have a special place in my life, poppy.

Poppy: I was right about you. You are the most wonderful man.

Bill: Well, let’s see if you’re right about the rest of it. You know what we have to do, poppy? We need to know.

Poppy: Yes. Thank you. This is what I was afraid of. Opening up. I love you, bill. And I loved you from the moment I first saw you.

Bill: Let’s do it now. Today. Let’s find out if luna’s my daughter. A daughter. I could have a daughter.

Poppy: Yes, you could have a daughter.

Bill: Wow.

Alrighty, what did you end up getting? Well, I’ll show you mine if you show me yours.

Do you think that Jude Or like This? Well, I think he’s gonna love it. And I also think that I just One upped you. You went upside down, Pete. Uh, best grandma in the galaxy. And that you are. Oh, darling. I think I’ll have some dinner. Grandchildren determine that. Yeah, well, speaking of that, Eric and Sue should have been here already with our newest grandchild.

You’re right. I wonder what’s going on. I’ll, uh, Maybe I’ll just be there if you call. Alright, let me see if I can get our table ready. Oh, perfect. Thank you, honey.

Okay, table for four and a half is waiting. We’re not going to need it.

What’s, uh, what’s going on? Eric just texted me. They’re not coming. Something is wrong.

Oh, yeah. Mm hmm. This is great. So thanks for meeting me here. Well, thanks for inviting me. It’s always great hanging out with you. You know, I gotta say, it feels really good to be back here at the good ol Brady Pub. You miss it, do you? The food, yes. I’ll tell you what I don’t miss. It’s a racket from every Tuesday night karaoke.

Oh, I bet. So are you off duty for the night? Uh, actually I’m not, so I’m gonna have to leave soon, so I only have time for a quick dinner, unfortunately. Ah, boo hoo. Yeah. You’re working late, huh? Yeah, you know, we’re shorthanded at the station. I mean, Harris came back for medical leave, but then when he came back, he immediately asked for more days off.

Is he okay? Yeah, I mean he’s physically cleared for duty, but I don’t know what’s going on in his head. And from what I’ve seen, he likes to play things pretty close to the vest. So he just asked Brave for a couple of extra days off? Yeah, unpaid leave. Did he say why he needed those days? He didn’t. And it’s safe to say that he’s not somewhere on a beach with an umbrella drink.

So I see you decided to spring for the Buffalo Bill room. Was the Roy Rogers room already booked? It’s, uh, trout season here in Montana. We were lucky to get this room. Oh. Hey. Hey, guys. Lucas. They’re, uh, bringing in a rollaway for me. Where do you want them to put it?


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

Now obviously you two lovebirds can have the big bed and I’ll just put my little tiny cot in this little tiny western room somewhere. What is this, trout season? Yeah, yeah, it is. So we’re lucky, apparently, that we’re not sleeping in the car. I just don’t want to cramp your style as well. This is not a romantic getaway.

Um, we’re here to catch Clyde. I just don’t want to be the third wheel. I hate that. Lucas, I brought you as a driver and a lookout. And I appreciate that. I do, and I’m going to do my part. I’m going to make sure that Clyde ends up in that, that cage right where he belongs, you know? So no one else gets hurt, you know, including you.

We lock Clyde back up, and you get your permanent release. Yeah, yeah, that would be nice, wouldn’t it? Except, uh, I will miss the make your own Sunday bar.

It’s an inside thing. Don’t worry about it. What’s the plan?

So even though you’re shorthanded at the station, Rafe still let Harris take those extra days off? Harris wasn’t going to take no for an answer, apparently. The man’s intense. He is ex Navy SEAL. Yeah.

You worried about something? Yeah, I’m always worried about something.

It’s Ava. She’s not around, and I’m assuming Harris is with her. Wherever Eva Vitale goes, trouble is sure to follow. Yeah, well, Harris is a big boy. He can take care of himself. Yeah, I guess he can.

You’re worried about something else too, aren’t you? You know me too well. I’ve known you all my life. I’m worried about my daughter. Okay, banana nut muffin and, uh, vanilla lattes. Hey, you remembered. Of course I did. Oh.

Sorry, once again. Hi Marlena. Chad, I’m trying to reach Eric and he’s not answering his phone. Is he at work today? No, I haven’t seen him. But he did send me a text earlier saying that a feature he was working on was on hold for a few days. I see. Um, I don’t know. It could be because of what happened with Everett at the bar.

So maybe he’s trying to keep his distance from the spectator for a little while. Did you hear what happened? I did. I did. Um, if you, uh, if you hear from him, would you ask him to please call me? Yeah, I will do. Take care, Marlena. You too.

Eric is not at work. Okay, maybe you can try slow.

What is it? What’s going on? Our number has been disconnected. Disconnected. Ah, that’s strange. That is strange, and it’s also alarming. I don’t like this, uh, uh, There’s something going on. Let’s find out what.

Hey, Eric, you in there, buddy? Where, where could he be? His car is downstairs, so is Sloan’s.

Eric, there you are. We’ve been so worried about you. Apparently for good reason. What’s happened, darling? Everything.

Stephanie told Kayla and me that Everett gave Eric Brady a black eye at the small bar. It was a misunderstanding. Really? He was arrested for assault. I’m sure the charges are gonna be dropped. You know what? I can, uh, I can get a hold of that police report. I can read it myself. But I have a feeling something else is going on here.

Isn’t that right, Jada? Steve, listen, given our history, um, I really hope that you can understand if I really just don’t want to get into Everett’s personal life and his business. I do understand, but the guy is dating my daughter. He were once married to him. So I need to know one thing. Is Everett Lynch a violent man?

Look, during the time that we were together, he never raised his hand to me. I don’t think he’ll hurt Stephanie. Not like that. Wow. Ah, there’s still something you’re not telling me. Listen, Stephanie knows what she’s getting into. You know, where are our burgers at? Gosh, you know, it looks like they’re shorthanded here too.


Oh! There you go. Thanks. So, we were able to track Clyde, or Goldman, or whoever downloaded the photos to a local library. Right. That’s why we’re here in the middle of nowhere in the woods, risking getting mauled by bears or eaten alive by mosquitoes. I get it. Yeah, that’s exactly why, and I think it’s worth the risk in my book.

I think it’s worth the risk too. But, if you, if you both know that Clyde is here, why didn’t you just call the FBI? Because I want to deal with that son of a bitch myself. I get it man, it’s personal for you. It’s personal for all of us.

Sloan took Nicole and EJ’s baby? Jude is their son? Not mine. Oh, darling, I’m so sorry. Sorry too, kid. Well, I imagine what you’re going through right now. So, Sloane’s on the run, huh? Yeah, she took off when I took Jude back to Nicole and EJ. I should have never left her alone. No, it wasn’t your fault. You were in shock.

I did the right thing, taking that little bitch. Boy back to his real parents. What can we do for you right now? I just want to be alone. Um,

don’t worry, I’m not gonna drink. No one thought you were. When’s the last time you ate? Since I found out. Okay, well. We’ll get you some supper.

I’m sorry about all the questions. I promise you I didn’t invite you to dinner to interrogate you about my daughter’s love life. You’re a concerned dad. That’s I get it. I am a concerned dad. But I have to be careful that that concern doesn’t cross the line into interference. Stephanie really hates that.

As you can imagine. Yeah. Stefan’s lucky. You know, I really wish that my dad was still here. Giving me grief about my life choices. I miss him every day. I miss my homeboy Marcus too. And he would be so proud of you. You know that, right? Yeah, you’ve told me that more than once. And I’m going to keep on telling you.

And hey, if you want me to step into that role, I can grill you about your, uh, boyfriends, people you date, and give you unsolicited advice. I’m good. I will say one thing on the record. Ray Fernandez is a good guy. He’s a great guy. Yeah, he is. And he’s not just my boyfriend. He’s also my boss. So I need to hurry up and eat this and get back to work soon.

Go ahead. Hey, your bun is different than mine. Yeah, it’s gluten free. Why eat it if it doesn’t taste good? This brand does. You know, I told Roman about it when I was living up here. It’s the one good thing that, um, Rebecca Goldman did when she was at the PD. What’s that? Oh, she just told me about this, like, niche bakery that she found online.

And they sell these buns. Goldman has celiac disease, so it’s the only bread that she can eat. Is that right?

So you think that Weston and his girlfriend are the ones who downloaded the photos? Yeah, I reached out to a librarian here in town, I texted her the photos of both of them, and she was very happy to cooperate. Well, did they give a positive ID? She thinks it’s Goldman. Did she say she saw Clyde? No, and it’s no surprise that Clyde’s laying low given his high profile escape from Statesville.

Oh. I guess that makes sense. So the librarian, the woman she saw, she said, came in and out of the library a lot in the past few weeks to use the computer. Yeah, and Rafe got a tip from the APB that he put out that Clyde was spotted here some time back. Well, did the local police follow up? They said it was a false lead.

Maybe it was. Or maybe it wasn’t. Or maybe Clyde’s got the local police in his pocket like he does everybody else. Yeah, wouldn’t surprise me. But you know what? Either way, we can handle this without their involvement. Yeah. This town isn’t very big. If Clyde and Goldman are here, we’ll find them. It’s really not like Eric to go AWOL.

I mean, Marlena sounded really worried. I’m sure he’s okay.

Everything okay? You keep checking your phone, you kind of seem like, uh, you know, a little, uh, out of space. Is that why you wanted to meet here and not the spectator? Yeah, it is, actually. I didn’t want Everett to walk in on us. Why? Because of what happened with Eric? Were you afraid he’s gonna slug me in the face?

No, no. I’m, um, I’m worried about him in general. He’s just so unpredictable right now. Well, I thought we made it pretty clear that we’re just friends. We did. But But? Seth, come on, let’s go. Hit me with it.

Marlena thinks that Everett has DID. Oh. And I don’t want to violate his privacy, and it feels wrong to speculate about his or anyone’s mental health, but He’s acting so out of character lately. Like Katie and Eric? Yes. And Jada said that he came on to her in the holding cell. He insisted that he wasn’t Everett Lynch, that he was Robert Stein.

He was a totally different person. And then it was like someone flipped a switch and he went right back to being Everett again. So Bobby Stein isn’t, isn’t a pseudonym, it’s a, it’s a distinct identity. Right. I wish I would’ve, I wish I would’ve seen it sooner. None of us did. No, but I, I should’ve. Yeah. I mean, I went through it with Abby.


I can’t, I’m not even hungry. Honey, you’ll feel better if you eat something. No, I doubt that. Mom, will you just do me a favor and tell the rest of the family? Of course I will. Come on Harry, come eat. Food’s a weapon. Look, you and Nicole are good friends. And I’m sure she’s gonna find a way so you can still be part of that little boy’s life.

I can’t. Nicole and EJ are together and Judith Judith’s her son. I need to stay away. I have to stay away.

I’m so sorry, I shouldn’t have brought this up. No, no, no, it’s fine. You weren’t even here when she was sick. But my parents filled me in. It wasn’t like it was a family secret. I know that she suffered from the same illness that Marlena thinks Everett has and that she would people. Yeah, Gabby and Dr Laura.

I also knew she made a full recovery. She did. Y was, I was very proud of h from the illness from D. I It was, yeah. Which Kind of makes me second guess my, uh, my position. On what?

Look, Steph, I know you’re not one to run away from trouble. But, you know, if Everett has DID, it’s gonna be a rough ride.

Are you sure you’re up for that?

Everett? Excuse me.

Dr. Evans? Hi. We’ve been looking all over for you. Who’s we? Stephanie. Me. I’ve been around, you know. I’ve just been walking around. Are you okay? I’ll be fine. You haven’t, uh, answered your phone. I’ve left you several messages. Stephanie has too. Yeah, well, um, I’m sorry. I lost battery this morning. I didn’t have a charger.

So why? What is so important? I want to talk to you about what happened last night.

So you think that Weston and his girlfriend are still here? Yeah, the librarian believes she saw Goldman this afternoon and she was printing out a lot of pages. Right, images from the book. Right. So how are we going to figure out where they’re staying? That’s tough. Yeah. Yeah, well, it’s not likely they’re staying on one of the motels given the demand for lodging here.

Oh, you mean because of trout season? Right. I mean, they probably have a place out in the woods somewhere. Well, Clyde is a country boy, you know, he’s from the Ozarks. Probably have no problem staying in the woods for a while, but we’re city folk man that puts him at a distinct advantage Don’t you think but he does send his girlfriend for errands?

So most likely she’s gonna have to come to town for food and supplies. We follow her. She leads us to Clyde Then what we turn him over to the FBI, right? When you said we were looking for a more permanent solution to the Clyde Weston problem Did you mean what I think you meant?

He tried to kill my son. Our son. He needs to pay.

That’s the plan.

And now I’ve got to get back to work. You know, Rafe wants me to take a look at Harris caseload in case there’s something immediate that needs my attention while he’s gone, doing whatever he’s doing. Ah, ah, ah, ah. Put your wallet away. Your money’s no good when you’re eating with me. That’s a rule with all my kids.

Are you sure? You know, Roman chart is extra for the gluten free buns. I don’t care. Surrogate Papa pays. Okay, Papa Steve. Well, thank you, and it was so great talking with you. You too. We should do this more often. Yeah. And we have to set a date for that dinner with you and Rafe, huh? Oh, we do. We’ll do that soon, okay?

Definitely. Yeah. Well, tell Kayla I said hi and give her a big hug for me. I will. Okay. Now you give me a big hug. No, no, no. Bye. Oh, babe. Okay. Okay. Bye bye.


Alright, Ava. Harris. Thanks to Jada, I might have an idea how to find you.

We’ve gone over this, haven’t we? I went out with Stephanie and Leo to blow off some steam. We went to a bar, I had a few too many drinks, I blacked out, you know? Which is why you don’t remember punching Eric. I don’t.

Excuse me.

Eric, hi. Um, I owe you a huge apology. Look, I don’t remember exactly what happened last night, okay? I might have blacked out a little bit. But, from what I understand, I think, I, I, I owe you an apology. I assume that because I saw you and Sloane fighting, I, I misunderstood what you were doing, alright? I thought you were trying to hurt her.

Which, by all accounts, doesn’t make any sense, because apparently, you’re a great guy, and, and she’s your wife and you love her. So, anyway, I’m, I’m sorry. I want you to know I’m, I’m sorry. Eric? Eric? I got this. Okay. What, did, did I say something wrong? No, he’s not upset with you. I every right to be. Well, John will take care of her.

Right now I want to talk about you. Look, I know that you’re concerned about losing time. And I know that I’m not your therapist anymore, but I would like to help you with that. Would you let me?

Look, I know it must be very challenging dealing with someone who’s mentally ill. Yeah, you really have no idea until you live with it. Right. I get that. I have a history with Everett. I care about him. So How can I just turn my back on him? Especially knowing he’s not well. I mean, it just abandoned him because he’s got this terrible illness.

Wouldn’t it be the more honorable way to go to show him support? To help him get the help he needs? Sure, if he wants the help. He went to Marlena for therapy. Yeah, but then he decided he didn’t need it. From what you said. Look, I know from, I know from personal experience that there can be A ton of resistance when it comes to DID.

Everett may, may want help, sure. But for Bobby Stein? It might take a hell of a lot for him to admit that there is a problem.

Abigail was lucky you were there for her. Yeah, I wasn’t there for her enough. Why do you say that?

She’s not here, is she? Chad, you’ve gotta stop blaming yourself.

I’m gonna say to you again what I’ve said to you many times before. What Julian has said, what everyone who cares about you has said, Clyde Weston is the only one responsible for Abigail’s death. And I’ll be brought to hell.

So, pretty small cop. Well, I’m a small guy, so it’ll work. Beats my bunk at Statesville, or my bed at the monastery. That was the worst bed ever. I hated that. Anyway, um, while we wait for info on Clive, maybe we should, I don’t know, get something to eat or something? What do you think? Yeah, I think our options here are going to be pretty limited, you know?

And I think everyone goes to bed here early, so. Oh, great. Well, desperate times call for desperate measures. Look what I got from the airport. Uh, this is elk jerky. This is really good. Come on. We can all share it. No, I don’t have anything. Portion. Come on, Harrison. No, I’m going to hold off on the elk jerky.

Um, saw a gas station at the edge of town. I think they had a convenience store. Oh, right. I saw the signs. They had guns. And, uh, ammo. And fireworks. And bait. Oh, guys, but I had bait for lunch. Oh, yeah. I’m sure they have something else that’s edible. Should we check it out? Yeah, we might as well. Alright, you know what?

Why don’t you guys go and I’ll just stay here and hold down the fort. Okay, just be careful. You be careful. Watch out for bears. I think the bears need to watch out for him. We’ll be fast.

Yeah, hello? Ava. Steve. How’d you find me? Well, that’s what I do for a living. I find people who don’t want to be found. So listen, you know, service at the pub has really slacked off since you decided to take a few days off to deal with personal business. Coincidentally, Harris, uh, took some time off to do the same thing.

You want to tell me what that was? Well, it’s called personal business because, well It’s personal. I know you’re both in Montana to look for Clyde Weston. And I’m coming out there to join you.

Look, I appreciate you offering to help, but, you know, Harris and I have got this. Uh, I’m not so sure about that. And as I said, I’m pretty good at finding people who don’t want to be found. So is Harris. Well, I think he would appreciate some assistance. You’re acting like you don’t trust me. Oh, it’s not an act, Ava.

You lie to me so much. And you just lied to John and me when you enlisted us to break Clyde Weston out of prison. I did what I needed to do to save my son. Our son. You’re not going to talk me out of this. I’m coming out there. Steve, this is a small town. You know that Clyde’s got eyes and ears everywhere.

You know, he’s probably got the local police already in his pocket. So if you and John show up here, that’s going to increase the chances of him being tipped off. That we are already on his trail. Come on. Look, I know. I know that you do not trust me, and I get that. It’s fine, alright? But you can trust Harris.

He’s just like you. He always does the right thing. Well, I have no problem trusting Harris. But, uh, you know, you have a tendency to get people to do things they wouldn’t have otherwise done. So let me do this. Okay? Let me do this for Tripp, for Wendy, for Abigail, for all the people that Clyde has hurt. Okay.

But you have to keep me in the loop, starting right now. Do you have any leads? Someone saw Goldman in town. Good. When? Today. Okay, so you find her, lead you straight to Weston. Yeah, that’s the plan. I think I can help with that. I found out that Rebecca Goldman only eats one brand of gluten free bread. Yeah, well, she’s going to have a hard time finding anything like that out here.

Well, that’s what I thought, but I found out that that company ships their product all over the world. You call the business? Yeah. They have a weekly shipment to a P. O. box in Ennis, Montana. And the first shipment went out to a Faith Silvers a week after Clyde Weston broke out of prison. Dammit, Steve, why did you wait so long to tell me?

When is the next shipment scheduled to arrive? Tomorrow. Okay. I’ll tell Harris. Ava, be careful. I don’t want to see Chip get his heart broken if something happens to his mother. I don’t want you coming home in a body bag. Yeah, well Don’t you worry, Steve.

You know that I can take care of myself. Okay. Goodbye for now. And you keep me in the loop. Yeah, I promise I will.

Don’t worry, Steve. The only person coming home from Montana in a body bag He’s Clyde. Hey babe, what’s up? How’d it go with dinner? You eatin something? I, I think we did good. Yeah, so they did have something at the convenience store, huh? Oh yeah, they had a great selection. Yeah, I hope you’re ready for slushies and flaming hot cheese puffs.

Oh wow, well, my mouth is just watering thinking about it. There you go. Digging it up. I’m sorry about that. The last thing I want is an apology from Everett. Hey, I get it. I get that. I’m just trying to wrap my head around the fact that Jude is Nicole’s baby. I know when

you were about this tall. I had to give you and Sammy back to Roman. So I sort of know what you’re You’re going through right now. And you two were just little squirts and I had you for years. No, but speaking for myself, By still staying in your life. By still loving you even though you weren’t mine. Over the, over the years that pain just kind of went away.

I’m glad you made that choice back then. I’m glad I could have you now. You can make that choice for Jude right now. No, I’m not sure about that. Why? What are you worried about? EJ won’t allow it? I mean, that’s part of it, mostly. It’s the last thing that I want to do is make Nicole’s life any harder. I appreciate you looking out for me, Dr.

Evans, but I think I’ve made myself very clear. I do not want your help. We’re worried about you, Everett. And Stephanie paid your bail. You haven’t even called her. I told you. My phone died. We both know that’s not true.

We also both know that there’s something that’s not right with you. And I think you’re afraid to talk to anybody that might confirm that. This conversation is over. Please stay away from me.

Dr. Evans, hello. I just ran into Everett, in the square. Did he say where he’s been? Uh, no, it’s pretty clear that he’s been avoiding people. He, he walked into the Salem Inn. How is he? Oh, well, he did apologize to Eric. Uh, but then I told him how concerned we all were about him, and he got really upset.

Agitated. So he’s still refusing help? Yeah, it seems that way. Look, I would like to meet with, uh, with you and, um, Stephanie and see if we can’t create an intervention. Whatever you think we can do to help Everett, I’m in.

Yeah, Everett’s lucky to have you in his corner. I know, uh, I know he doesn’t have much of a support system. He doesn’t. I feel kind of bad for being a jerk to him in the beginning. Maybe I should have taken the higher road. You apologized for that and he forgave you. Well, you know, if you’re going to be there for Everett, I want you to know that I will be there for you.

Thank you, Chad. It’s Jada. Everett’s okay. Well, that’s good news. Yeah, it is. She also texted that. Marlena wants to stage an intervention. Okay. Alright. Well, if you need any help, you let me know. I will. Thank you, Chad. Thank you for listening and um, for caring. Of course. Back at you. Bye.

Steve. Any leads on where Clyde is? I don’t know. I can’t tell you anything yet, Chad. Except that Harris Michaels is on the case. And I’m confident that he’s gonna bring Weston back. Dead? Or alive?

I don’t think I have to tell you which one I prefer.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Claire: Are you mom-spying? Is that what this is?

Victoria: Maybe. I am a little. Cute and healthy recipes for kids. That’s an interesting search choice.

Claire: I didn’t get a chance to tell you last night. You’re looking at harrison abbott’s new nanny.

Victoria: Oh, I am?

Claire: Summer changed her mind. She decided to give me a trial run. Hence my search for adorable snacks.

Victoria: That’s wonderful. You should be proud.

Claire: I’m really excited. Harrison’s the best and I’m really grateful for this opportunity.

Victoria: Is there something else?

Claire: It’s all a little bit nerve-wracking. Small kid means big responsibility. Summer’s been wary of me. So she’s gonna keep a very close eye on me.

Victoria: She has no reason to doubt your abilities.

Claire: I really wanna earn her trust. Make a good impression. Really just be the best nanny ever.

Victoria: You’ll be great. You will do all of that without putting so much pressure on yourself.

Claire: You’re my mother, don’t you have to say that?

Victoria: No, I mean it. Look, you’re very smart. You’re capable. Just follow your instincts. Everything will fall into place. Hello. Hi.

Cole: Hey, hey.

Victoria: Hi cole, come in, I-

Cole: Hey.

Victoria: This is a surprise.

Victor: Hi sweetheart.

Victoria: Seeing the two of you here together. Hi, good morning!

Cole: Ah, nice to see you. I’m glad you’re here, both of you.

Claire: Yeah, it’s great to see you too. But what’s up with the drop by? Is everything all right?

Victor: Have you seen your mother?

Victoria: No, not since this morning. Has something happened?

Victor: There’s some news regarding jordan.

Jack: Hi there.

Nikki: Jack, is now a bad time?

Jack: No, no, no. Come on in, come on in. I just didn’t expect to see you so soon. You look wonderful.

Nikki: Thanks. I just got back yesterday. I finished my initial treatment at the rehab facility and they approved me for outpatient care. So I’m home.

Jack: Well, that’s great news. Sounds like you’ve made real progress.

Nikki: I still have a ways to go, but I will get there.

Jack: Yes, you will. I have no doubt about it. And you look terrific. You look rested and strong and it’s all over your face.

Nikki: Well, it wasn’t easy to go away, but it was necessary. I realized that I needed more significant help.

Jack: I’m glad you made that choice for yourself.

Nikki: I didn’t get there on my own. You helped me get there. You are the reason why I am back on the right path.

Chelsea: Adam, I’m almost ready. I just have to– hi, it’s you.

Billy: It’s me.

Chelsea: What are you doing here? Oh, I’m so happy to see you. But you were away on business. I didn’t expect you back so soon.

Billy: Well, I cut my trip short because you’re more important. Wanted to see you before you head off to see connor.

Chelsea: That’s so sweet.

Billy: Mm-hmm. Thought you could use a little extra encouragement and support.

Chelsea: Well, you didn’t have to drop everything and fly home for me. We were calling and texting every day. You could’ve reassured me over the phone.

Billy: Yeah, that’s true. But I can’t do this over the phone.

Sally: Morning.

Adam: Oh, man. You just ruined my brilliant plan.

Sally: Sorry.

Adam: I was gonna bring you up coffee and pastries. Give you the breakfast in bed treatment.

Sally: Well, aren’t you just the best host? Were you able to get back to sleep last night?

Adam: Eventually, yeah. Thanks for staying up with me.

Sally: You’re worried about your son. It’s understandable.

Adam: Having you here makes things easier. With you around, everything’s better. Um, but now that you’re awake, we can have some breakfast.

Sally: Uh, wait a minute. I think we should talk about your offer. Auntie, you can’t put that right in the dishwasher. Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Adam: Look, about last night, I hope that I did not put too much pressure on you when I asked you to move in with me.

Sally: I mean, it is a big step.

Adam: I know. And, you know, if it’s– it’s too much pressure, I completely understand. You know, it as kinda spur the moment.

Sally: So, what are you– what are you saying? That you changed your mind? You don’t want me to live with you?

Adam: Look, I don’t know what you’re thinking. So I will just be honest with you. I do want you to move in. It’s been on my mind for a while. But first and foremost, I want you to be happy. So if this is not what you want, just say it.

Sally: Okay, okay, okay. I’m gonna put you out of your misery.

Adam: Please.

Sally: My answer is yes. I will move in with you.

Adam: You will?

Sally: Mm-hmm.

Adam: Are you sure?

Sally: Yes, yes. I’m ready. I’m ready, and– and I think it’s time.

Adam: Oh, thank god. Oh, thank god.

Billy: So how’s your head right now?

Chelsea: Uh, kind of all over the place. This is the first time we’re gonna see connor since he went to the facility. I mean, we attempted to before, but it was a complete disaster.

Billy: But he’s in a better headspace now, and he’s ready to see you in person.

Chelsea: Yeah, that’s what he says.

Billy: Great.

Chelsea: That’s what he says. And, um, the doctors agree. So we’re gonna meet with him in a controlled environment to make sure he feels safe and secure.

Billy: Sounds like a recipe for success.

Chelsea: I hope so. I’m just torn. I– part of me feels hopeful. The other part feels absolutely terrified.

Billy: Yeah. Well, you’ve been through a lot. All of you have, especially connor. And I just wanna be here to help in any way I can.

Chelsea: Well, just being here with you right now, it’s everything.

Billy: If the best thing I can do is hold your hand and tell you that you got this, then that’s what I’ll do. You got this, chels.

Nikki: We didn’t get a chance to talk before I went away about what happened in the hotel suite.

Jack: Yeah, it was one hell of a night, wasn’t it?

Nikki: Are you all right? Please tell me that you haven’t used since then.

Jack: Yeah, I’m fine. I’m fine. Honest. Gone to a few meetings, checked in with myself. No urge to take pills.

Nikki: Oh, thank god. I have gone over that night so many times. My mind, my spiral. How cruel I was to you.

Jack: Nuh-huh.

Nikki: And ultimately what you did to finally wake me up.

Jack: It was a calculated risk.

Nikki: You sacrificed your sobriety for mine.

Jack: I was desperate. I would’ve done anything to save you.

Nikki: Well, jack, what you did was very dangerous and you went too far.

Jack: Believe me, I have done my share of soul searching on that. And I’ve had to admit that my actions were too extreme. Things could’ve gone very differently.

Nikki: Oh, my god. When you passed out, it was like my whole world stopped. I– I was frozen in time. But I guess it took that to make me realize how far you had gone to bring me back from the brink.

Jack: I honestly thought I’d lost you.

Nikki: Well, what you did was the stupidest and bravest thing anybody has ever done for me.

Jack: Well, you’ve done the courageous part now. You dug deep, got yourself out of that hole. You went to rehab. You’re doing the work now.

Nikki: And I will continue to. I can’t afford to be cavalier. I’m still an alcoholic. I always will be. But I’m better than I was, thanks to you.

Jack: And this outpatient treatment’s working for you?

Nikki: So far, yes. But I still need a sponsor. I hope it’s not too much to ask that that still be you.


Jack: I am here for whatever you need. You need me to be your sponsor, that’s what I will be.

Nikki: You have been my rock. I don’t know what I would do without you.

Jack: You’re one of the strongest people I know. You’re strong, you’re smart, you’re kind, you’re loyal. Is it any wonder everyone’s so devoted to you?

Nikki: Well, even though I don’t deserve it.

Jack: No, give yourself more credit than that. Every time you’re knocked down, you end up stronger.

Nikki: Thanks to you. And I am so grateful, more than you’ll ever know. Hi, victor. All right, I’ll be there soon. Bye, darling. I am needed at the ranch.

Jack: Okay, go, um… call me if you need anything.

Nikki: Thank you, jack. Thank you so much for everything.

Jack: Here.

Nikki: Ooh, diane, nice to see you.

Diane: You too, nikki. Glad you’re looking so well.

Nikki: Thank you. You two have a good day.

Jack: Well, that was a surprise. Nikki’s home. She’s in outpatient treatment.

Diane: With you as her sponsor? Why would you agree to that without talking to me first?

Jack: Because I didn’t think you would have any objection.

Diane: Oh, really? Or did you think I’d just let it slide?

Jack: Wait, diane–

Diane: No, no, the facts haven’t changed. Your role in nikki’s sobriety caused you to risk your own.

Jack: That’s the past. It won’t happen again.

Diane: That’s right, it won’T. Otherwise, you and i are going to have a problem.

Adam: I present to you your keys with a little stylish button for decoration because fashion is your thing.

Sally: Well, that is adorable. Thank you.

Adam: Mm-hmm. And if there’s something you don’t like, poof, it is gone. Okay? Bring in new pillows, lamps, whatever you like. Okay, you wanna paint? Just have at it. You want new wallpaper? Okay, fine.

Sally: I– I really don’t think that’s necessary. I really love this place as is.

Adam: Hey, I mean, I live with a designer now who has impeccable taste. So I want this place to be yours. It’s our home. Together.

Sally: Wow, I haven’t had many places I could call home.

Adam: Oh, we can build one. Welcome home, baby.

Nikki: Hey, I got here as soon as I could. What’s going on?

Victor: Hello, sweetheart. Come here. Um, there’s something I have to tell all of you. Please sit down.

Nikki: Victor, please just tell us what has happened.

Victor: I was informed by my security team that they found jordan on the banks of the garewood river. And cole was there when they told me.

Nikki: Thank god.

Victor: Apparently, she was barely breathing. In other words, she was alive.

Nikki: What?

Victoria: No, it can’t be. Well, where is she now?

Victor: They took her into custody. And apparently, she was just spewing nonsense, babbling. Taken her in for mental and physical examination.

Cole: With maximum security measures in place.

Claire: We thought we were free of her, but all this time she’s still been out there.

Victoria: Mom, are you okay?

Nikki: I had assumed that she was gone forever, that she could never be a threat to us again.

Victor: And she won’T. I don’t want you to worry about that, okay? Really, don’T.

Victoria: I’m grateful that she’s in custody, but–

Claire: But she’s found a way out before.

Cole: Well, the authorities are fully aware of the danger she’s capable of. She’s been sent to the highest maximum security prison there is.

Victor: By the way, that’s from a place that no one has ever escaped from.

Nikki: You know, there’s something very strange about this.

Victor: What?

Nikki: You said that she was chased by your men and fell into the river.

Victor: Yeah.

Nikki: So how did she survive that fall? And how did she stay alive all this time? Your heart is the beat of life.

Adam: Hey, I didn’t know you were back in town. Chelsea told me you were gone on business.

Billy: I was, but I know that you’re gonna see connor, so I wanted to be here to support chelsea.

Adam: Ah, that’s very generous of you.

Billy: Well, chelsea said that you’ve been a big support while I’ve been gone. You’ve been reasonable and steadfast and determined.

Adam: It’s a big surprise coming from me, huh?

Billy: Guess what I’m trying to say is good on you, adam.

Adam: Well, thank you. We’re gonna get through this together.

Chelsea: That’s the plan. I guess we should go, huh?

Adam: Yeah, the, uh, jet’s all fueled up.

Chelsea: Okay, please tell victor I said thank you again.

Adam: I’ll give you two a minute.

Chelsea: Oh, you know, you’re pretty wonderful, you know that?

Billy: Well, you can tell me that when you get back. Right now, you focus on your son.

Chelsea: I really believe sending him to this facility was the best thing for him. I do.

Billy: Good. You trust that feeling, okay? And just know that you’re on the right trajectory and that you need me for anything at all, let me know, okay? I’m always here for you no matter what.

Chelsea: Thank you.

Billy: Okay. Have a good flight.

Chelsea: Okay.

Victor: How did jordan survive? Well, I would say out of pure evil, as she always has.

Nikki: She should be at the bottom of the river. On second thought, drowning is too good for her. I would prefer for her to suffer.

Cole: Well, jordan will spend the rest of her life in prison with no power, no control.

Claire: Till she rallies and tries to come after us again.

Victor: It’s not gonna happen, okay? She will never bother our family again.

Nikki: I pray you’re right.

Victor: I assure you that jordan will not cause any more damage.

Chloe: Any updates?

Sally: Um, unfortunately, no.

Chloe: Well, I guess it would be a long shot to hope for victor to go along with adam’s plan to help us out. I mean, listen to me. I can’t believe I thought that victor newman would rescue us.

Sally: Chloe, this isn’t easy for me to say. But I think we have reached the end of the line.

Chloe: What? No, no, no, no, no, no. We just haven’t found a solution yet. But we will. I– I know we will. It’s– it’s there somewhere.

Sally: I don’t think so. I mean, we’ve exhausted all of our options and we’ve turned over every rock.

Chloe: Yeah, but we’ve always come across setbacks and then we always figure it out. I mean, besides, neither of us have anything lined up. So, I mean, we might as well stick it out.

Sally: That’s the thing, um… so, I’m sure that you have heard that chelsea is taking a leave of absence from marchetti.

Chloe: Yeah, yeah. Chelsea told me that she wants to spend more time with connor.

Sally: Exactly. So, adam spoke with chelsea and chelsea’s gonna put in a word with summer for me to see if I can take over for her while chelsea is gone in the interim.

Chloe: Oh, wow, um… okay, so you didn’t think to maybe have a discussion with me first about this, your partner?

Sally: It all happened so fast. I– I reached out to you as soon as I could.

Chloe: Okay, so did summer make you an offer?

Sally: No, and– and she probably won’T. I mean, she doesn’t like me with good reason. So, she probably doesn’t want me to be the creative director.

Chloe: It’s possible, though. Or we wouldn’t be having this conversation.

Sally: Look, the role would be temporary just until chelsea feels ready to come back.

Chloe: But if summer offered it to you, you would take it and leave me behind. Oh. Wait, what’s– what’s with the bag?

Sally: I am moving in with adam.

Chloe: I’m sorry, I just– this day just keeps getting better and better.

Billy: Hey, mom.

Jill: Billy, where are you?

Billy: Uh, I’m at the office. I– I got back into town just now. What’s going on?

Jill: Uh, I should’ve made it clear that this is a personal conversation.

Billy: Okay, I’m sorry. I didn’t know. I just– I wanted to get back to you as soon as possible.

Jill: Are devon and lily around?

Billy: No, they’re in a meeting. They actually don’t know that I’m back yet. We have privacy, if that’s what you’re asking. Is everything all right?

Jill: There’s something you need to know. It ain’t my dad’s razor, dad.

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Jack: Clearly, I’ve upset you. That was never my intention.

Diane: I have tried to make the best of this situation between you and nikki. And I had concerns when you first agreed to be her sponsor, but I kept my mouth shut because I know how important it is to you.

Jack: Nikki is one of my oldest and dearest friends. I want to help her.

Diane: And you have made that perfectly clear. Even though you know how hard it was for me to accept that you put your life in danger for her. Jack, you took pills and you could’ve died. All because you were trying to save nikki.

Jack: That was one moment, one night.

Diane: No, no. She takes up so much of your time and energy. And– and I have tried to be the bigger person, but you are making this very difficult for me.

Jack: That was never my intention.

Diane: No, it’s too much. You gambled with your addiction and you could’ve died. Why? Why would you take that chance again?

Jack: You saw nikki just now. She’s doing better. She is. She’s stronger. She’s more herself. I saw it.

Diane: Well, I’m glad she went to rehab and I’m glad she’s improving. That’s wonderful. But there’s no guarantee it’ll stay that way.

Jack: No, I think it’s gonna be different this time.

Diane: Yeah, but what if it’s not? What if she slips? What are you going to do? Are you gonna call up your dealer and risk everything to pull her back from the edge again?

Jack: No, I have promised you that’s not going to happen again. I just finished telling nikki my actions were extreme.

Diane: But in your mind it worked, right? You accomplished your goal. You got nikki to wake up and set herself straight.

Jack: I can’t say I am disappointed with how it turned out.

Diane: That’s fine. But as your wife, you need to know what your decision to be her sponsor again is doing to me. Because I don’t know if it’s something I can live with.

Victoria: Is there anything else that we don’t know?

Victor: No, my darling, you know everything that’s important. So, as far as I’m concerned, you’re all safe.

Claire: Thank you, grandpa.

Victor: I’m sorry, but there’s something I need to take care of. My darling, you need me, you call, okay?

Nikki: Oh, I’ll be fine. Don’t worry.

Victor: My baby. Okay, you two.

Victoria: Bye, dad.

Victoria: So, you were with dad when he got the news about jordan. Did you see her alive?

Cole: I did.

Claire: How was she?

Cole: She looked weak, worn out, just a shell of her former self.

Claire: I guess after everything she went through, being in the river for that long.

Nikki: Do you think she could’ve been faking?

Cole: No, no, no. She, uh, she was definitely broken, defeated. It was over.

Claire: I can’t even picture her defeated. But I guess she brought it on herself.

Cole: The bottom line is that none of you should be afraid. We don’t need to worry about her anymore.

Victoria: You know, every time that we think that jordan is out of our lives, she proves us wrong. She escaped from prison, she escaped from the hospital, and now somehow she’s cheated death?

Cole: Well, I totally understand your fears. I would feel the same way if I hadn’t seen her myself. My aunt will never harm anyone again.

Billy: Mom, what’s going on? Is– is everything okay?

Jill: I’ve, um, had some issues with my health. You know, little things. You know, like my heart beating too fast and difficulty in breathing. Just some lightheadedness.

Billy: Okay. Well, that’s a little worrisome given your heart attack you had a few years ago.

Jill: Yeah, I felt the same way. So I went to the doctor and, um… and there are some complications, billy.

Billy: Okay. What does that mean exactly?

Jill: I don’t wanna get into it.

Billy: Okay, well, you’re gonna have to give me something, all right? Because you’re telling me that– that you’re not well and I don’t know what to do, so–

Jill: I’m in london now with snapper and he’s overseeing my treatment.

Billy: Okay. Well, that’s good. Um… I mean, is this serious, mom? I just have to take it easy and avoid stress. Honestly, snapper is being as irritating as hell. He’s just hovering over me like a mother hen.

Billy: Okay, well, it sounds like he’s being a good brother. Um, I mean, is this– is there a significant risk here?

Jill: Well, if I’m not careful, things could get worse. Yeah, they could… get much worse, but I am not going to let that happen.

[Billy sighs]

Billy: You know, when you told me that you were stepping away, I thought something was up because that doesn’t sound like you. I got a bad feeling in my gut.

Jill: Oh, for god’s sake, your gut doesn’t know anything. Nothing is gonna happen to me. I won’t let it. Darling, don’t you get sentimental or scared on me. You hear?

Billy: Yeah, I hear you. Um, is this the type of situation that has a prognosis?

Jill: I won’t bore you with the opinions of others or statistics. Just know this, my son. I am confident that I can take this on.

“The darkness of bipolar

depression made me feel like

Victoria: You know, there is nothing online about jordan being found, at least not yet.

Claire: I should tell summer and kyle about this. Don’t you think they should– they should know, for harrison’s sake?

Victoria: Mom, claire has some wonderful news. Kyle and summer have hired her to be harrison’s nanny.

Nikki: Really? How wonderful.

Cole: Congratulations, sweetheart. Well deserved.

Claire: It’s just a trial for now. Today’s actually my first day.

Nikki: Ah, I’m so happy for you. And harrison is a lucky little boy.

Claire: Well, I was really excited about it before, but now with this news about jordan, I…

Cole: Hey, don’t let that ruin your excitement.

Nikki: This is quite an accomplishment for you. Savor this moment. It’s the beginning of a whole new chapter for you.

Chloe: Well, this is unbelievable. How long has this been in the works with you and adam?

Sally: He just asked me to move in yesterday. But this feels like the next step for us.

Chloe: Swell.

Sally: Look, we all know how you feel about him, but this really feels like a good thing.

Chloe: Fine. Fine, I… I’m not going to say anything about adam. I’m not gonna warn you off of him ’cause we know how that has worked before. So I, um, I hope that your living arrangement is not awful.

Sally: Thank you.

Chloe: Okay, but, I’m sorry, but I just need to be a little selfish right now. So if our company goes under and you go to marchetti, what happens to me?

Sally: We will figure something out. I won’t leave you in the lurch.

Chloe: Well, sorry, honey, but you already have. I mean, I don’t know if I can go to marchetti. I burned that bridge with summer when I quit.

Sally: Yes, but if I am the creative director, I will fight for you. You are an asset to any company.

Chloe: I mean, do I even wanna go back there? It wasn’t a good fit.

Sally: But maybe it’ll be the perfect fit if I’m there.

Chloe: You don’t even know if you have the job. So if our company dissolves… I’m sorry, but I can’t base my whole future on hypotheticals.

Sally: Yeah, I understand.

Chloe: And have you even talked to nick? I mean, does he– does he know that he might lose his entire investment?

Sally: Not yet, but I will. Look, I will get all of this sorted.

Chloe: Have you thought this through at all? Have you seriously considered that you are going to throw away a company, the one that we have built from the ground up?

Sally: We’re still a team, chloe. That doesn’t need to change.

Chloe: No! No, if this is happening, then I’m on my own.

Billy: I’ll never doubt your ability to pummel anything into submission, including heart disease.

Jill: Correct answer.

Billy: Okay, so what do we do now?

Jill: Just keep this to yourself. I don’t want anyone else to know.

Billy: Yeah, of course, but what else? I mean, I know you’re there with– with snapper, but I’ll come and see you. I can leave tonight.

Jill: Don’t be stupid, sweetheart. You need to stay put and manage the company.

Billy: Mom, that doesn’t matter right now, okay? You’re the most important thing, and you’re telling me that you’re not well.

Jill: I’m well enough, thank you. And it’s far too messy there for you to just walk away. Your job is to protect chancellor-winters from outside threats. Protect its legacy, billy.

Billy: Yeah, I can do that. But I’m not gonna do it for chancellor’s legacy, okay? I’m gonna protect the abbott legacy. Your legacy. With moderate to severe plaque psoriasis,

Jill: I’m glad you understand the importance. Look out for the company. I need you fully on board.

Billy: I won’t let you down.

Jill: Oh, and let’s be clear. This is not forever. I will be back. And when I am, I expect to find the company stronger than ever with you in charge and mamie gone.

Billy: I got this.

Jill: I’m counting on you.

Billy: Well, just promise me that you’re gonna keep me in the loop, okay? You let me know about your treatment. Okay? You can promise me that, right? And, uh, you need me, you just let me know and I’ll– I’ll come see you.

Jill: Thank you. I’m proud of you, billy. And I love you, my son.

Billy: I love you too, mom. You don’t worry about this place, okay? Because I’m just getting started. You ain’t seen nothing yet.

Sally: I swear, we will work something out. I won’t leave you behind.

Chloe: You’re on your own track. Totally separate from mine. You’ve got adam and a potential job with summer and you don’t need me.

Sally: That is not true.

Cloe: So, um, I guess this partnership is considered over, right? Well, thank you for the opportunity. Um, really, it’s been great. This has been fun.

Sally: Chloe, please!

Chloe: No, really. It’s no hard feelings. Okay, I wish you the best with adam. And, um, I sincerely hope he doesn’t break your heart.

Jack: Look, I realize you’re upset. I’m just telling you this is a non-issue.

Diane: You’re not hearing me, jack. I don’t even understand why this is up for debate. You shouldn’t be nikki’s sponsor. And I would think that the professionals at her rehab would’ve told her that.

Jack: Nikki is free to choose her own sponsor.

Diane: Oh, right. And she chooses you. And– and you feel justified in continuing because your stupid plan worked and no one died this time.

Jack: Do you think I’m choosing nikki over you? That is not what this is.

Diane: What am I supposed to think? When– when you’ve chosen to be her sponsor again, when you know how I feel about it.

Jack: I am torn. I– I do not wanna let you down. But you’re asking me to abandon a lifelong friend. It’s not an obligation I can easily walk away from.

Diane: Jack, I don’t think I can get past this. And I don’t think you realize how serious I am. This is about trust. This is about our relationship. This is about our marriage. And you and I are, we’re looking at things so differently right now in a way that I never, ever expected. And I don’t know how we’re going to survive this.

Cole: Where do you want these?

Victor: Uh, put them there for the time being.

Cole: You sure about this?

Victor: Well, cole, we have no other choice, you know.

Cole: We did the right thing, victor.

Victor: Yeah. All right. Let’s go. We lock this down here.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


hey. Good morning. Want some coffee, or are you gonna go back to bed? Uh, coffee. I have to meet my brother, and I don’t want to be late. Well, I’m sure he’ll understand. Uh, no, it’s not like that. I have to support him. I need to make sure he doesn’t feel guilty or alone or whatever he felt yesterday that had him reaching for a bottle. Look, finn’s grieving. Okay? And — and he’s not just grieving the loss of your dad. He’s also grieving the time he stayed away. He’s gonna feel what he’s gonna feel. And you think I should just let him feel it? There’s no stopping it. Look, you can reach out, offer your support. I know finn would really appreciate that. I’m so sorry about your dad. I know he meant a lot to you, too.

[ Sighs ] Come in. Thanks. You just get back? Yeah, 10 minutes ago. I wanted to get here before you did because I, uh — I made some coffee, and if you — I figured you’d want that. And while we’re waiting, I thought maybe we could talk. How did things go in albany? I want to talk about your dad.

[ Crying ] I’m so sad. I’m so sad that I missed the wedding.

[ Sighs ] You know, um… it wasn’t perfect, but it was close. There was A… there was a moment where I didn’t think my dad was, uh, gonna be able to finish the wedding. Yeah. But then tracy and violet — they got him back on track and… he just willed himself through the rest of the ceremony and… it was beautiful. I know how much that would have meant to him. I do, and I’m so glad that his last day was beautiful. I am. -Hey. -Ooh. Thank you. -This one’s for you. -Thank you. And thank you so much for meeting me. As soon as ava gets here, we can head out, and then we can check out those apartment listings. Of course. Yeah. Um, but I thought you had the day off. Yeah, I don’t know. All I know what happened was that ava called me. She wanted me to open up. She said that there was an emergency meeting at “crimson.” These deception ads are gorgeous. Yeah, the camera really loves blaze. I can’t wait to run them. Be careful, maxie. Integrity isn’t nina’s strong suit. Not that that’s news. Madison! Oh, she’s not at her desk. She couldn’t have stopped me anyway. Note to self — buy madison a taser. Ava! As you can see, we are busy. So how about you go out there, make an appointment for, I don’t know, next millennium? I’d be happy to see you then. You’ll see me now. You broke our deal. I wanna know why. Hi, boss. [ Chuckles ] Come in. Well, I’m not hereon business, so you can just call me mr. Cain. Oh. Sir, yes, sir. Ha, ha! Is michael around? There’s something I want to run by him. So this isn’t entirely a social call? Nope. Not entirely. It was michael’s turn to run wiley to school. But he’ll be back soon if you’d like to wait. Happy to. Great. Coffee? Always. But what I really need from you is… I need your opinion on something. About what? Well, there’s something that I want to run by you, but you gotta promise that you’re not going to tell the rest of the quartermaines.

For the apartments… mm-hmm. …Location-wise I’m thinking around pcu, but does that work for you?

[ Sighs ] I don’t know. I-I haven’t decided whether or not. I’m going back after my semester off. But if I do, I’m done with dorm life. It just — it reminds me too much of spencer. Well, I hear you there.

[ Chuckles ] And to be honest, I’m pretty tired of drunk people no, yeah. In our halls at all hours of every day… …and the cafeteria food. And I’m tired of smelling everybody’s takeout, and it’s coming through our walls. Yeah, and just the noise of other people in general.

[ Chuckles ] What? Nothing, except… I don’t think you are in a position to be complaining about other people’s noises when you made your fair share of noise yourself. Right. I did not. Because you only made those noises at dex’s house.

[ Laughs ]

[ Chuckles ] Okay, okay. Uh, you know what? It — it doesn’t even matter now. So when was the last time you ran into dex? At the wedding. So how was it? Um, it was surprisingly good. Mm. Yeah. My parents told me that it was really beautiful. Yeah, it was. And so was the reception… right up until sonny attacked dex. I am not sure what deal you are referring to, but you are more than welcome to forward a copy to my assistant. You know very well what deal. You promised me that you would devote two pages to the U.S. Debut of harriet nekaya at the gallery. Oh, now I recall that discussion. Yes. The assistant editor that you lobbied lobbied me, and I had every intention of including it. Then why isn’t it in here? Space. Space? You see the size of this magazine? Of course I see it. I published. Then how is it possible there isn’t any space? Like I said, ava, I have every intention of putting her in the magazine. But in this issue, I needed to make space for something a little bit more timely. Like what? Like an in-depth profile on an exciting new charity initiative that my daughter’s involved in.

[ Scoffs ] Willow doesn’t even talk to you. Since you and i aren’t friends anymore, how could you possibly know what’s going on between me and my daughter? Or a gentleman friend that I may or may not be seeing? Let me guess. I wouldn’t know him, right? He lives in canada.

[ Laughs ] Yeah, I would love to stand here and dish with my bestie, but since you put a knife in my back, that’s not you, so how about you leave and report back to sonny? You know something, nina? I think it’s really sad that your head trip as — as queen of crimson is all you have left in your… little life.

[ Sighs ] That was nuts. Right? I mean, she was

way out of line. Yeah, she was definitely out of line, but I was talking about you. Me?! Nina, why would you antagonize ava jerome like that? So, I happen to know that congressman mcconkey is not gonna be running for reelection next fall. And I met with mcconkey recently and… he’s urging me to run for his seat, which means — wait, wait, wait, wait. I just want to make sure I understand. Larry mcconkey wants you to run for his seat in congress? Yeah, that’s what he said. I mean, I haven’t fully wrapped my mind around this yet. Are you going to do it? You would be perfect! Took violet to school. When I got home, I found my dad had… passed in his sleep. But I don’t think he felt any pain. Well, at least that was a blessing. Uh-huh. Then I called 911, and they took forever. And while I was waiting, I… I looked over and I saw this — this bottle of bourbon, this gift from the cerullos that they gave to me at the rehearsal dinner. And I was gonna give it away. Instead, I drank a third of it. Okay. You don’t seem entirely surprised. It’s okay, finn. You know, I keep asking myself, would I have drank yesterday if I didn’t accidentally drink that glass of champagne the night before? And I’m 99% sure I-I wouldn’t have. But then there’s that 1% of me that’s not so sure. And that’s the part that’s winning. You have to try to look at it objectively. I’ll try. I mean, regardless of you slipping the night before, you woke up the next morning, and — and… it was tragic. It was heartbreaking. So you have, um, a pretty sympathetic reason to break your sobriety.

[ Sighs ] Doesn’t excuse it. Forget about excuses because I’ve learned that, you know, nothing really excuses anything. There’s just explanation and forgiveness. And after everything you’ve been through, it can certainly be explained. Hey, you know, I’m not the only one that has suffered a difficult loss here. How are you? You mean, do I want a drink?

[ Chuckles ] Yeah.

Did you drink? No. No. And I have no intention of it. Yeah, well, neither did I, but here we are. I think maybe it’s — it’s a two-a-day meeting kind of thing for a while, huh? Way ahead of you. I was at a meeting this morning. That’s — that’s why I didn’t pick up when you called. Yeah, that’s a damn good reason. I drank. But I’m never gonna drink again. For now. Yeah, for now. So… you know, the thing to really remember is you know, you and me…

[Voice breaking] We have each other. Yeah.

[ Both chuckle ]

Why am I antagonizing ava, maxie? Yeah. Well, um, maybe it has something to do with, I don’t know, telling me that she was going to go to bat for me with sonny and help me save my marriage… I know that — …then sandbagging me because she wanted to get her claws into sonny herself. All that was awful — she implied that if I sold the metro court to jason, that sonny would approve of that, knowing full well that sonny hates jason now. Okay, nina, do you regret selling the metro court? No. Do you regret signing the divorce papers? No. I regret

having to sign them. But sonny and I were broken beyond repair. Then why take the time to make ava your enemy? Becoming my enemy was her choice. That woman has a history of murder and mayhem with a touch of poisoning. Please, who doesn’t? Maxie, come on. I don’t think I’m in any physical danger. Okay, maybe not today. But if you keep this up… I’m telling you, though — did you see that scowl on her face? Now, that — that was almost worth a little arsenic. Chase: I’m so sorry. What do I tell you about apologizing, huh? That this is how we’re spending your dream honeymoon. Honeymoons are two things, okay? First of all, they are a vacation. Italy’s not going anywhere. We will take that trip later and make up for all the lost time. I like the way you think. I know. What about the other honeymoon? The other honeymoon is this — everything else. Ah, forever. This is my dream. Coffee and scones? Being with you through good times and bad. And, yes, the coffee and scones are a definite bonus. Are you sure you don’t want another one? Yes. If I haven’t made myself clear, whatever I can do for you, for us, for our family, if — if that’s jumping in and helping or giving you time to grieve with finn, or both, I’ll do it, okay? I got you. You are amazing. I really am. I love you so much. Ditto. How are you? Not great. I’ve since learned there are greater losses than my law license. I’m so sorry about gregory. I know how important he was to you. I called him last night, and chase answered the phone. That’s how I found out. Any word on the — from the court of appeals? Well, the wheels of bureaucracy do not accelerate to steamroll over you, no matter how much it seems like they want to. Any new insights? I thought we stood a really good chance of at least having your disbarment reexamined, if not completely vacated. Yeah. And now? Now it’s clear that your disbarment was motivated by personal animus, no vigilance toward the law, and that animus stemmed from two conspiring sources — ava jerome and fergus byrne. By the way, I’m going to be filing a harassment complaint against counselor byrne a little later on today. Maybe more than one, depending on my mood. Well, if you need any ammo… please. …We had a little run-in at a diner in albany. Say more. I was just sitting there, minding my own business, drowning my sorrows in a salad, and the avenging angel strolled by. What did he say? You know, it’s not what he said. It’s what I think is true. It’s not about his vengeance. It’s about his guilt because he was estranged from both his brothers when they died about some inheritance issue. Oh, interesting. Maybe I can use that. Oh, go ahead. You know, if I’m being blamed for destroying two of the byrne brothers, might as well make it a trifecta.

[ Chuckles ] I like the way you think. I’ve been getting all the flack for this, anyway. It was harmony who killed neil in my bed and then shoved his brother brendan off a cliff. So why is that idiot after me? I’ll make sure to ask him at his disciplinary hearing. In the meantime, I am off to general hospital. I’ve got to meet with gregory’s sons for the reading of his will. I’m glad that he retained you. After I represented the plaintiff suing his son, even I was a little surprised. He knew you were just doing your job. I mean, we both know that the justice system works best when there’s capable attorneys on each side. And you are capable attorney. You’re not as good as I am. Oh. But you’re a capable attorney. Okay. I’m really glad he retained you. Listen, you are mentioned in this will. You want to attend? Amy said you’d be in here. Is this okay? I want to — I need to apologize. I was wrong, and you were right. And I never should have spoken to you that way. I have no excuse. I was grieving my father, and I drank to numb the pain. Again, that’s not an excuse. It’s just what happened. But chase — he talked me through the worst part of it, and I’ll never drink again. I’ve already been to one meeting this morning. I ju– I just wish I had the words to explain how sorry I am to you. Thank you for saying all that. I know you mean it. And I’m really glad to hear that you’re doing what you need to take care of yourself. But I hope you understand that I wasn’t trying to take charge or tell you what to do. It was only thinking about violet and how she just found out that she had lost her grandfather, forever, and… I needed to put her first. I understand. Good. Because you didn’t seem to yesterday.

You know what’s funny?I didn’t think this was a thing, but now that we’re married, I feel different. In what way? It’s kind of hard to explain. It’s like, you know when you’ve been away for a while and you finally come home and you crash in your own bed? Oh, yeah. Yeah, it’s like that, but everything is better. Even the bed is better. And somehow you love everything even more. It’s like your capacity to love has just leveled up in a way that you didn’t even know was possible. And here you are. Here we are. We’re home. We belong, and we’ll always belong, because the person we belong with is always by our side. And it’s not like some huge, major revelation. It’s just like remembering something that we always knew but now we won’t forget. Because here we are. Because here we are. So is dex okay? Is he — is he gonna press charges? How are you feeling? I’m pissed off. I’ve been so angry at sonny for so long. God, it’s like I’m permanently stuck like this. Yeah, I hear you. So is — is dex… well, I took him to the E.R., And we had to wait there all night because he needed stitches. Dex needed stitches? Oh, it could have been a lot worse had jason not been there to pull sonny off of him. Josslyn. You more than anybody should know better than to spread gossip. Um, it’s not gossip. I was there. Oh. You saw sonny hit dex? No, but I saw dex right after. So, no, you didn’t see anything. And yet… and yet kristina saw

everything, and she was very freaked out by it. And how far along is kristina? Now, what you girls wouldn’t know is that when you’re pregnant, sometimes the — the littlest thing can freak you out. Oh, this was not a little thing, sorry. But what you do know, both of you, by now, is that when men drink, they fight. And I’m sure this encounter between dex and sonny wouldn’t have escalated if jason hadn’t insinuated himself. Okay, you know what? This conversation isn’t going anywhere, so maybe we should just dead it here. And we have those apartments to go see, yes? No, you know what, trina? You’re so right. And I shouldn’t argue with your boss, who wasn’t actually

at the reception — I can’t imagine why you weren’t invited — um, and couldn’t have possibly known what actually happened. I’m not gonna go to the reading. I think that’s for finn and chase. Oh, honey. I’m sure they’d welcome you. Besides, I have to pay a visit to a certain gallery owner. Ah. Give ava hell. Anyhow, I think I know what gregory would like me to do from his will. You can guess, but I can neither confirm nor deny till the will is read. He wants me to be literary executor, and I’m proud and happy to do it.

[ Chuckles ] I had a feeling you would be. I really wish that I had gone to the wedding… …and seen him in his proudest and finest moment. I just really never thought that it would be his last.

Violet has always been your first concern. But yesterday, you…

[ Sighs ] You made it seem like she was something that belonged to you that I shouldn’t take, instead of a little girl who had just lost her grandfather and probably needed a lot of reassurance. Not only have I never seen that side of you before… …I honestly didn’t think you were capable of it. You’ll never see that side of me again. And I want to thank you for looking out for my daughter.

[ Cellphone chimes ]

[ Sighs ] I’m sorry. Um… chase is here. Is he okay? Yeah. He’s, uh… diane miller’s coming by my office to read my father’s will. So there is a subtle but clear narrative direction that — I mean, who does ava think she is telling me that I don’t have a life? I’m literally a trendsetter. The question isn’t whether or not we should — anyone can hang paintings on a wall. I dictate fashion. It’s more like how much space to — I mean, the woman doesn’t even have a place to live. She’s imposing on the father of her child, a man who will never, ever love her. Okay, since we’re obviously not going to talk about the ads, which is the actual reason for this meeting… I’m — w-what are you doing? What — I’m sorry. What were you saying? No, no, no, it’s too late for what I was saying. You clearly need to get this out of your system. Um, who was the gentleman friend you were mentioning to ava? Maxie. You know. Yeah, but I was hoping I was wrong. You and drew are still, um… whatever? Yeah, well, he’s no gentleman, and he’s certainly not a friend, but we have a good thing going.

[ Sighs ] Nina, he’s your boss. It doesn’t hurt business. And you two don’t like each other? Well, that definitely doesn’t hurt business. Can the sex really be that good? It’s a huge decision. I mean, this is gonna affect everybody that I care about. But you want to do it, right? You want to run for mcconkey’s seat? I mean, I didn’t even take it seriously at first. I thought he was kidding when he brought it up. But the more I think about it, I mean, I do see the upside. You seem to think it’s a good idea. Uh, no, I think it’s a great idea. But it’s crazy, right? I mean, it’s nuts. I mean, would I even have a shot? Absolutely. Government needs people like you. Really? People with no previous government experience? Because that typically doesn’t work out very good. Well, it does when those people are unselfish and open-minded, when they get involved in order to try and help make life better for people. Yeah, those people typically stay out of politics. Which is exactly why we need more of them in politics. And if you don’t mind my saying so, I think — I think it’d do you good. How so? Well, you were in a very dark place for a while, and I know you’ve made it out the other side, but that darkness — it stays with you. And you think me running for public office is gonna cure whatever is ailing me? I think being in office, making a difference — no, it won’t cure it, but it will help. It’s why I loved being a school teacher and why I’m going to love being the spokesperson for the new tomorrow institute. Raising awareness of the need for bone marrow donors will make a difference. It will help make people’s lives better, or it’ll help them live at all. And I will — I will get to help make that happen because you offered me the chance to. And I’m very glad that I did. Okay, I promise I will not say a word to anyone else about you possibly running for congress, but I really, really hope you’ll do it. Hey. Hey. Oh. Come on in. So how are you this morning? I’m okay, all things considered. How are you? I didn’t sleep much. Ended up sitting in dad’s room half the night, trying to feel close to him, I guess. I didn’t drink again. Matter of fact, I went to a aa meeting this morning. Good. I’m glad you’re doing what you gotta do. Just so you know, I’m not checking up on you. Really? Why not? Because I trust you to take care of yourself and violet. Ah, alexis. Good morning. Are you shopping for yourself or somebody else? No. I just got back from albany. I met an old friend of yours. How? I don’t know anybody in albany. Oh, sure you do. Fergus byrne. Fergus byrne. Hmm. Any relation to those other two byrnes whose lives you destroyed? Actually, it was harmony miller who destroyed their lives. But, yes, he’s their brother. But, of course, you already know that because you hired him to get me disbarred. Oh, him.

[ Chuckles ] Of course. I remember him now. How’s he doing? I imagine he’s having a very, very good day. You know what I’m really curious about is why you chose to be anonymous. Because I would’ve thought you’d be thrilled at the thought of me knowing that you were responsible for the implosion of my career and my life. No, alexis. You are responsible for that. But I was more than happy to help. Will that be all?

“I, gregory chase, being of sound mind and unsound body, et cetera, et cetera” — and just so you know, in addition to the regular legalese, he actually wrote out, “et cetera, et cetera” — “the first order of business, I suppose, is to name my executor. And that would be my son, harrison chase.” Wait, what? Yes, sir. You are responsible for seeing to it that your father’s wishes are followed. Uh, okay. Um, what are his wishes? Brief and clear. Just take a breath. Don’t worry. If you need any advice, I’m always here to help. Thank you. I will take you up on that. “While harrison will be the executor of my estate, such as it is, I also name alexis davis as my literary executor. As for my rather modest estate, it is to be divided evenly between my two sons, harrison and hamilton, with the exception of my library, which I leave to my brilliant, imaginative granddaughter, violet, to enjoy when she is ready.” She’s gonna love that. Yeah. “Finally, I request that my body be cremated. Rather than a church ceremony and a burial, I want an open-air memorial with my family and closest friends gathered to witness the scattering of my ashes near my favorite tree in the park. Violet knows which one. I want my family to focus on life, not death — the sky and the world around you, not a hole in the ground. In setting my body and spirit free into the air, I can happily return to the earth, which has been so generous to me.” Well, if that’s what dad wanted… that’s what we’ll do. I’m not talking about sex. That’s really not part of it anymore. Oh, no. Nina, are you developing feelings for drew? What? God, no! You know that saying about protesting too much? You are, like, the literal illustration right now. No, it’s just that…

[ Sighs ] Somehow the — the frenemies with benefits really did have benefits. Because of drew, I’m back on semi-speaking terms with willow. Okay. What’s he getting out of it? What else is he getting out of it? I got him a meeting with congressman mcconkey on this big urban-renewal project aurora’s working on with the city. Okay. Hmm. Yeah, I know. We’re actually, like, business partners, sort of. I still have to ask, what — what are you gonna do if temptation a-arises again? Maxie, don’t worry. For me, drew cain is the opposite of irresistible. Nina, if that were the case, why do you keep

not resisting him? Why would you go out of your way to destroy my career? Oh, alexis. It wasn’t out of my way at all. And as to the why, you knew my brother loved you very much. And you used that against him over and over again, leading him on, drawing him in, only to cast him aside. It didn’t matter that he saved your life more than once, or that he dried you out after you ran him over with your car while out on a bender. Actually, I was on a bender after being manipulated by julian to defend carlos rivera, who he then murdered, which your bestie fergus described in glorious detail to the court. Well, I wish I could have seen that. So you’re still blaming julian for all your failings? No, ava, I’m blaming you for getting me disbarred. I see, so here you are standing in my gallery, blaming me, even though you committed perjury. I mean, did I call the bar and make a statement? Yeah. Did I tell them you committed perjury? Yep. Which you did. So don’t blame me. Blame yourself.

The more I learn of public service, the — the more I like it. But the campaign could get nasty. I was in prison not too long ago for insider trading. Which you’ve owned up to. And now you’ve seen firsthand what prisons are like, so you can campaign on reform. You’ve paid your debt to society, which appeals to those who value accountability. You’re an ex-navy seal, which appeals to the military-minded. You’ve already shown a commitment to the public good, which appeals to mcconkey’s base. Wow! Will you be my campaign manager? Thanks, but I’m busy. Oh, yeah? Really? Well, you’re fired. Oh, okay.

[ Laughs ] Oh, I love the sound of that — “congressman cain.” Yeah, yeah. Mcconkey had something to say about that, too. Hey, thank you. Really. This is… this is way more than I could have hoped for. You can thank me by agreeing to run.

[ Knock on door ] Thought you’d still be here, even though you’re not working today. Yeah, I figured since I was here anyway, I might as well catch up on some paperwork, maybe it would help keep my mind off…things. Is it working? Eh. What do you got there? Dropping off x-rays seems like it’s beneath the head nurse’s pay grade. I’m never too busy to help the people I love. Thank you for that. How’d it go? The reading of your dad’s will? He left all his books to violet. Sounds like him. Instead of a funeral, he wants his ashes scattered in an open-air memorial. That sounds beautiful. Yeah. And if you don’t mind my asking… ask me anything. …When’s your next meeting? In about an hour. Do you want me to pick up violet from school? Is she even at school? Yeah. I didn’t — I didn’t want to disrupt her schedule. And she insisted it’s what her — her grandpa would want. She’s probably right. Then consider it done. Thank you. I’m — I’m sure violet will love that. I should get back to work. Yeah, me too. How’d the reading go? Uh, good. My dad made me executor. Really? Wow. What an honor. Yeah. I always thought I would go to finn because he’s the oldest, but it’s almost like my dad knew that he’d be struggling and shouldn’t be burdened. Or maybe your dad just trusted that you could take care of things. Yeah, I guess that’s a possibility. So how are you feeling with everything? Better. I’m glad that I have one more thing that I can do for my dad. Now I just have to not let him down, or anybody. Stop putting so much pressure on yourself, chase. Well, not only do I have to carry out my father’s wishes, but I have to worry about finn and violet. I have to get them through this. Wow. Yeah. It’s just so awful that you don’t have anyone by your side to help you through any of this. Oh, wait. There you are. Here I am. Don’t you forget it. Did you even see the affidavit I signed? Yes. Was there anything in there that wasn’t true? Nope.

[ Chuckles ] Then what in god’s name are you objecting to? I’m objecting to your cruelty, ava. You have only two ways of dealing with adversity. Just two. You either deflect blame, or you inflict harm. My brother would be alive today if he hadn’t been on the receiving end of what you call love. I got nothing to apologize for. You mean nothing that you’ve been caught and prosecuted for…yet. Which makes me miss being able to practice law that much more. But license or not, you’re going to regret making that complaint.

On the next “General Hospital” —
