Oh! John, Marlena, thank you for coming. Always good to see you. Is, uh, can I get you anything? Tea? Coffee? No, I’m fine, thanks. No. No. Okay, then. Um, I wanted you to come over because there’s something I want to tell you. Constantine and I are engaged.

Well, best wishes. Well, there’s no need to pretend that you’re pleased about it. Um. I assure you the marriage is a name only, not to be advertised as such, but we are keeping up appearances for immigration’s sake. So, I wanted my circle of family and friends to know the truth. Which is? That Constantine’s visa is expiring and I offered to marry him so he could stay in this country.

I had a prenup drawn up. Um, Constantine had no problem signing it. So I wanted you both to understand that.

I feel like I owe him. Because he was so kind to me. After I lost Victor. And also because I Because of what I did to his daughter?

Okay, Holly, you got this. You can do it. Focus. Okay, problem number three. The function of f is defined by f parenthesis x close parenthesis equals blah blah blah blah. Throw this stupid book out the window.

Yeah, Sophia. I know. Audrey had a huge house party and you weren’t invited. The nerves. Seriously? Who cares? Okay. You got this, girl. You are a badass. You can do it. Just need to focus. The function of F is defined by F.

Hey, little guy. What’s going on? Aw. Trying to keep me up all night. Hey. Well, uh, maybe you can use this pacifier if you still use this one. Uh, yeah. Let me see if it’s right here. Okay. Oh, there you go. Oh, no. I’m on. Oh, jeez. Okay, well, maybe one of these toys here might calm her down. Mom! Mom! Mom! Sloane,

hey. Hey. Hi. Uh, actually, you know what? I was just leaving. Sloane. Eric.

So, you want to tell me what that was all about? Cause, I would just love to know. Hey, why, can’t we just get him home and I’ll explain it to you on the way.

You’re plastered, not to mention untrustworthy and unreliable. Hey, that’s unfair. Okay, yeah, maybe a tad inebriated. Intoxibrated. Okay, I’m four sheets to the wind, but In vino veritas. And I have got some veritas for you. Fine. Just spill it already. No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. No, Mr. E. C. If you want to hear it, it’s going to cost you a pretty penny.

And believe me, you are going to want to pay because This dish I’ve got for you This is juicy. It is gonna turn your world upside down all around. Like that strapping beefcake of a rugby player did to me all those years ago. Oh, I remember it well. We locked eyes at this all you can eat buffet. Enough!

What is it you want to tell me? Spit it out now! No, no, no, no. Like I just said, my handsome friend with the accent to die for. If you want to hear it, it’s gonna cost you, and I’m talking that big. Demirra Cashola, that chudder, that chutting. I’m not into games, Stark. So why don’t you just tell me what you came here to tell me right now, and I bet it’d be bloody good.

Oh, trust me. There is

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

You were following Victor’s orders, John. I believe the Victor that I knew would want me to do this for Constantine. I mean, they had had their differences in the past, but eventually they became friends. Yeah, well, that’s because it was more convenient than being at war. But Constantine still held a grudge, to put it mildly, right?

But he forgave you, and Victor. John, I think we need to move forward and leave all this animosity behind us. And as far as marrying Constantine, I feel like I can afford to be generous while still protecting my interests and the interests of the Kiriakis family. You’re an intelligent woman. I’ll support whatever you think is best for you.

so much, Marlena. Ah, Vince! John! I was just telling John and Marlena about our upcoming wedding. Ah, yes, the wedding. I do hope you will both attend. So, do you swear you had no idea that you

and Nicole were going to both be working at the Spectator? No. None.

I know what it looked like, but Nicole was just trying to be friendly. Friendly are a great word choice there, because it’s exactly what it looked like. Like you guys were just getting lost in each other’s eyes. Sloane, it wasn’t long ago, you just, you just walked out the door. I wasn’t even sure when or if you were even coming back or when we were going to talk.

Do you need something to sober up? Leo, a glass of water? How about a garden hose? Garden hose? Is that a euphemism? Okay, okay, I’ll admit I am a little drunk, but it’s the good kind of drunk. The, the liberated from my highfalutin inner critic kind of drunk. I’m not sure that’s the good kind of drunk in your case.

Look, all I want for my secret is some money. Okay. Pridbrobro. Nope. Quidbropro. You want money, right? For what, exactly? How about I give you a little teaser of what I’m talking about? I’m ready. Well, it has to do with someone very close to you. Nicole? Yeah, that was an excellent guess. What about my wife? I know that she’s now a colleague of yours at the Spectator.

Did something happen there? No, are you, um, Are you a fan of the Beatles? Paul, Ringo, no wait, Ringo, John, George, and Paul is the cute one. Oh my God. So my favorite song of theirs used to be Across the Universe, and then when I was 24, Any time I would hear that song I would break out in hives, and to this day I can’t explain it.

That’s it, you’ve wasted enough of my time. Okay, wait, wait, wait, wait, what about, uh, Hey Jude? See you now. Paul wrote that song for John’s son, Julian. And then at the last minute, he changed it to Jude because he thought it sounded better. Do you like that name, Jude? I think it’s adorable in an English schoolboy kind of way.

Get to the point, Leo. What if I told you that you were a father? I already know that I’m a father. I have two children.

Pretty children. What are you

What do you mean?

Hey Jude. Jude what? That is not possible. How would that be possible?

I’m not going to.

We will be at the wedding, of course. Well, we haven’t set a date. We have to do it, though, before Constantine’s visa expires. Um, the sooner we get married, the sooner your immigration problems go away, for good, right? Of course, of course. But first, there are some items of interest that must be taken care of.

During photosynthesis, which of the following produces sugar? Is it A, the light reaction, B, the Kelvin cycles? Come in. Hi. Hi. How’s it going in here? It’s, uh, you know the emoji with the exploding brain? Yeah. Yeah, that’s how I feel right now. Oh, honey, it can’t be that bad. Oh, it’s bad. I mean, there’s so much to catch up on, and I had this giant energy drink because I thought it’d help me focus more, but I think it made me feel more scattered, because, I don’t know.

Honey, the, the, the one with all the caffeine in it? Those are terrible for you. Oh, look at my hand. It’s shaking like a leaf. Sweetheart, when is the last time you spoke to your therapist? Dr. Alvarez is on vacation. Mom, I’m feeling, like, really anxious and weird and I hate it. I hate being like this.

Sweetheart, I know you do, honey, and I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry.

You didn’t think I was coming back? Jude is my son. What do you think I’m gonna do, abandon him? No, of course not. I was just, I was just thinking you were fed up with me. I was hurt. Yeah, that’s all, you know, I felt accused of, of squandering money on Leo, you know, and all I was trying to do is be kind, help the guy out.

I get that

slow. I’m

Oh, you an apology. I’m sorry.

What for? For not being more trusting. More forgiving. So I just, I want to be a better husband for you.


Maybe you start by believing me about Leo, okay? And what, what motives I had behind helping him out. Yes. Eric, it’s really hurtful. You know, to have your husband think you’re a liar.

Uh, uh, uh, you’re lying. You’re, you’re just an obnoxious drunk and you’re trying to provoke me. Uh, first off, I am not an obnoxious drunk. I’m a fabrous, yes that is a word, and jocular drunk. Hmm, okay. Do you remember when Nicole kept insisting that Jude was her baby? The one who quote unquote died? She was convinced of it and everyone else thought she was one french fry short of a happy meal?

Of course I remember that. It was terribly painful for her. And for me. That must have been horrible, but the thing is, your son didn’t die. What? I tried to tell you and Nicole. I came here before Christmas, remember? And what did I get as a reward? A thank you card, a Pomeranian, two tickets to the Tonys? No, I got a beatdown and a black eye, and now it is gonna cost you, big fella.

You listen to me, you lying dirtbag. If you don’t get out of here right now, I’m going to give you much worse than a black eye. No, please, I am telling you the truth. You have to believe me. Your son is a liar. I swear it is the truth.

Sorry that I had to take that answer. It’s a, it’s a patient. I’ve got to go. I need to be on my way too. Teresa and I are off to a meeting. Don’t want to miss out on those stale donuts. Well, it looks like we’re all out of here, so congratulations again. John, why don’t you stay? Just for a drink. Why not? The ladies are off into the night, and I know I would love a nightcap.

And the company.

Yeah, sure. Why not? I’ll, um, I’ll see you at home. I’ll grab a ride share. Okay. See you at home.

Maggie is a real dear, is she not? Yeah, you’re a lucky man to have a woman like that in your corner. She really cares about you. Does she though? If you Care for someone and you want to take care of them in all ways Not sure what you mean. I am talking about the prenup, John. But it’s a good thing that I have a plan.

And now that we are both alone, I think now is as good a time as any to put that plan into motion.

I swear on everything that I hold dear, I had nothing to do with the baby switching. Yes, I wrote a screenplay with the exact same storyline, but that was years ago and it never went anywhere.

So you’ve known this whole time that Nicole’s and mine baby is alive. And yet, you said nothing. You did nothing. I tried to tell you! And it’s not like I did nothing, I, I blackmailed someone.

Italian made shoes, cashmere socks, a fountain pen that was very expensive and I lost and I never got to use. You think I could afford all that on Lady Whistleblower’s salary? Alas, the gravy train has been put out to pasture. Wait, that’s not right. The gravy train has left this No. The gravy train has run dry.

So it’s all dried up, has it? So now you’ve come here after having wet your beak a little too much. Trying to extort me. I am not trying to extort you, I just told you. Em. Mm hmm. Well, I just told you. I told you so, now you have to pay me. I take cash, check, Venmo. I will accept Bitcoin, but I prefer fiat.

You can see that payment in hell. Dammit.

I don’t think you’re a liar. But paying for Leo’s hotel room? Just to be nice, I’m not buying it. I can’t even believe we’re still talking about this, Eric.

What? My headache. It is clobbering right now. It came back. Can we just put a pin in it? Oh my God, there you go again. What am I doing? What? What am I doing? No, you’re trying to avoid the conversation. Because you’re paying for Leo’s hotel room. By the goodness of your heart,

I don’t buy it for one second. Unless Hold up, Miss Bossypants. I’m the one blackmailing you, not the other way around, okay?

Unless Leo was blackmailing you, wasn’t he?

Thank you, Marlena, for coming over so late, especially on such short notice. It’s my pleasure. If I can help, I’m glad to. Dr. Evans, hi. Hi, Holly. It’s good to see you again. It’s good to see you too. Um, your mom tells me that you’re feeling overwhelmed. Yeah, I am. It’s just, I have so much studying and homework to catch up on and I don’t know, it’s like the more overwhelmed I feel, the less stuff I get done and I don’t know what to do.

I understand. You know what I do when I’m feeling overwhelmed? I, uh, take a deep breath.

It just sort of relaxes the nervous system. It tells your body that you’re safe. There’s no danger near you. Do you want to try that? Yeah. Yeah,

I guess I feel a little more chilled out now. Good. I’m glad. And, and, take breaks every so often. You know, just, just go outside, take a walk in the garden, or maybe Listen to some music. And what I suggest tonight is, Go to bed early. You know, get some rest. And then you can get up early in the morning and, and, Go back to your studies.

When you’re rested.

In fact, I, I think I’m going to, uh, I’m gonna send a note to your teachers. Just remind them of what you’ve been through. I’m sure they’ll understand. But only if that’s okay with you. Oh, yeah, definitely. Thank you so much, Dr. Evans. Yes, thank you, Marlena. Glad to help. Now, go ahead. Get some sleep. Get your rest.

And, and as far as your work goes, don’t worry about catching up with everything. Just Go at your own pace.

Okay, well, I’m gonna go to bed and try to get some sleep now. Sweetheart, love you. Thank you.

I can’t thank you enough, Marlena. You said exactly what she needed to hear. My pleasure. I hope it helps.

I should, uh, I should get going. Um, actually, if it’s not too much trouble, Marlena, could you stay? I need some help, too.

Fine. Yes, Leo was blackmailing me. With who? Um, Leo, his whistleblower. He did some research, you know? And he uncovered a lot of sordid things from my past. That those sordid things were humiliating. Song, what is it? Don’t talk about it, please. It’s just gonna be more painful for me. I offered him cash to kill the story.

I thought that you would take away my law firm, if anything, if you could. And I thought that if you found out the truth, you know, you would leave me. Sona, I would never leave you over something like that. Can you please just hold me? I can’t believe I let him into our home. I’m sorry. I’m so sorry. I’m sorry.

I love you. Will you take advantage of me? No, I can’t believe that I took on a con artist as a client. You know what, there’s no way I’m gonna let him get away with this, I promise you. No, no, no, no, no, please don’t, don’t, don’t go confront him or anything, you know. He didn’t, he didn’t mean to hurt me, that’s the thing.

You know, he’s a terrible child. It came from troubled childhood. He’s a messed up person. He’s not happy with himself. He’s lonely. Well, I’m gonna kill him. What? Eric, it’s dead. No, like I said, I’m gonna kill him.

Alright, how can I help you? Oh, well, Marlena, as much as I’ve tried, I still can’t seem to stop blaming myself for Holly’s problems. Her drug overdose. How stressed she is now, how hard she is on herself. And I feel like it’s because I wasn’t there for her. When she needed me, and she felt abandoned. You did the very best you could in the moment.

That’s all any of us can do. Yeah. I know, I’m I’m gonna try to not feel guilty and just be there for my daughter. And I know we discussed this. In our first session. And that is more important to me than anything. It’s just to be there for my daughter.

You know, we can’t keep our children going through bad times, disappointments, sadness, heartbreaks, that’s just part of living. They have to go through those things. All we can do is love them. And be there for them as you said Yeah, I know you’re right That is all we can do Plan Not sure I follow you Constantine.

I thought we were just gonna have ourselves a little nightcap. Oh, believe me I will be enjoying my ouzo while you get to work. I Get to work

Now where were we you need something from me that is right I need you to break into that safe and steal the prenuptial agreement. Steal it.

I, I could have said something like, give me some money and then I’ll tell you a secret, but no dumb cop here. Tells the secret, then asks for the money. Who does that? What does that even say? Who cares? I just need to pee. Oh, my head is literally pounding right now. Oh, wait, wait. Maybe that’s E. J. here. To give me some money.

Well, Eric! Son of a bitch! Whoa, whoa, whoa! Back it up! Why are you blackmailing my wife? Huh? Huh? Who else are you blackmailing? Nobody! Whoa, nobody. Nobody else has that kind of tender, succulent secret like Sloan has. You see, you could serve the thing in a Michelin star restaurant. Yeah, you know what? She told me you were blackmailing her to keep her assorted details from her past.

I don’t even recall them. She did? I don’t remember that. I don’t remember much of anything right now. Leo! Oh.

Ah, finally, someone went to sleep for mommy. I could just stay there. Damn it. What are you doing? Banging on my door, waking up my baby. Your baby? That is not your baby. You lying bitch! Tell me that that isn’t my child in your arms. Go on, tell me that! Do you have any idea what you put my life and my family through?

Now I am taking that child. And after I prove that he is my son, I am going to call the police and have you arrested for kidnapping. There you go, bitch.

Do you know that the most wonderful, warm hearted thing in the entire world is the strangeness of kinders? I, that’s not right. The kindness of strangers. But you’re not a stranger, though you are being very, very kind to me. You know, how much have you had to drink?

Did I ever tell you one time I almost directed an off off Broadway production of Streetcar Named Desire? I had the striped scarf, the cigarette holder, and then Oh, God. Oh, no. Oh, God. In case.

You know, how many times I dreamed about having you in my bed, and now here you are, and all I want is Dimitri, who left me all by myself. You wouldn’t understand about that. You wouldn’t have the foggiest idea. Actually, I do.

And how does EJ feel about you working with Eric? I haven’t told him yet. I was going to tell him earlier, but then What? But then what? I didn’t want to upset EJ. Because, uh, you know, I thought they might turn it into something in his head that it wasn’t, and, and then, and then Sloane saw Eric and me at the square.

We were with Jude, and she reacted badly when really it was just innocent. Oh boy, you’re skeptical. It’s none of my business. Marlena, please tell me what you’re thinking. You know what I’m thinking. Right. You’re thinking that Eric and I still have feelings for each other. And you’re thinking that because when we had our first session together, I told you that if the baby that I had lost was Eric’s, that I might leave EJ to be with him.

What does that mean to you?

What’s that? You stay here.

Maggie, I thought you’d left. Oh, well, I did. Fellow traveler of mine just finished her first year of sobriety, and I’m supposed to hand her a chip. I drove halfway there before I remembered I, I didn’t have it, so it’s probably in the, in the study. I, I can go get it for you. Why don’t you go outside and get some fresh air, okay?

Constantine is no trouble. I can find it myself. No, you can’t.

I can’t go into my own study. It’s only because I I spilled some tea on your magnificent carpet and I haven’t had the time to clean it up. Oh, for heaven’s sakes, who cares? Oh, I see, John left. He did. He went to call Marlena. He wanted some privacy. Right, right. Um, uh, Here’s the sobriety chip. Okay. I’ll see you later.



I beat you.

Nicole. What does it tell you that if the baby you had been carrying was Eric’s. You would have gone back to him.

Well, it tells me that I still have feelings for Eric. Feelings that I’ve been trying to suppress for a long time. But they’re still there, aren’t they? Do you still love Eric?

Uh, I’m, I’m feeling a little tired now. Marlena, but thank you so much for listening.

It’s fine, I’ll just let myself out. I hope I see you soon.

Do you still love Eric?

Always. Look, sometimes I do things that Messed up, okay? Like stuffing hors d’oeuvres from a Vanity Fair afterparty into a stolen clutch purse. Or, or blackmailing your lovely wife, who did not deserve that. Nobody deserves to be blackmailed. Well, some of the people I went to drama school with did. What I mean to say is that I’m sorry.

I am truly sorry and I would not do anything like that again.

I should hate you for what you did. But the truth is you just, you seem lonely and sad and genuinely contrite. No, I have some compassion for you. Oh, God. Father Eric, thank you. No. And forgive me, please, for I have definitely sinned. Leo, I’m not a priest anymore. This is not a confessional. You might want to become a priest again, because I have something to confess.

To wipe away my sins, to cleanse my soul, all that good stuff. Yes. Something to confess. You said something like that at Jude’s christening. Jude. Jude. Leo.

Arrested for kidnapping. You’re damn right. You’re out of your mind. Oh, don’t bother. The little swine told me everything. What little swine? Leo Stark. He was a drunken, rambling mess, but he told me that Jude is our baby. Nicole’s in mine.

He’s only half right.

Half right? What the hell are you talking about?

Hey, Leo. Come on. Come on, wake up. Come on, man. What do you want to say? What about Jude? Leo?

What does that mean, Sloane? Half right?

It means Jude is Nicole’s baby, but not yours.
