Hey. Hey, you. Mind if I join you? Not at all.

So, what are you working on? Oh, an exposé on the unfortunate exploits of Mayor Paulina Price. Unfortunate exploits. Uh, you mean during the Smith Island snowstorm? Exactly what I mean. Take a look.

There we were. The three of us waiting for Chanel’s blood test results. Chanel, Johnny, and I. And then Kayla comes in and tells us that Chanel is pregnant. Oh my god. If something happens to that precious baby, I’ll never forgive myself. Paulina, please. Please don’t be so hard on yourself. How can I not be hard on myself?

Oh, Abe, I made a stupid, impulsive decision to try and save my daughter and now what I did, it could have tragic consequences. Oh, Ava, Ava, Ava. Your heart, your heart’s in the right place. And now my heart is just broken. Oh. Well, not only for what Chanel is going through, but what she and Johnny, they’re both going through.

Oh, hey, what have I done? What have I done? Oh, oh, oh. Oh, oh, oh. Oh, oh, oh.

Hey, little guy. What’s going on? Trying to keep me up all night. Hey. Well, uh, maybe he needs his pacifier if he still uses one. Uh, yeah. Let me see if it’s right here. Oh, no. Oh, okay. Well, maybe one of his toys here. Hey, Nicole. Hi, Johnny, Chanel. But, uh, you two were out late, huh? Yeah. Oh boy, is everything okay?

Yeah, uh, we just, um, it’s been a long day and we’re just exhausted. Uh, goodnight. Cool. Good night.

I’m being serious. I dare you not to touch a fry until we make it home. Oh, man. Oh, that’s a tough one. Who am I not to take a dare? Although, shouldn’t this go both ways? Hmm? Yeah, I guess it should. Okay, so whoever caves first and eats a fry will have to let the other one Make the decorating choice tonight.

Oh, okay. Okay. Okay, you’re on. Alright. Yeah.

There it is. Hello. Looks like you’re heading somewhere fun. Uh, yeah, we’re actually heading home. Home? Don’t you live here? Not anymore. I just moved in with Rafe. Ah, well, congratulations. Thank you. Thank you. You’re welcome. Yeah. So, how’s your little boy? Ah, he’s great. Yeah? Yeah. Good, good. And Sloan? Uh, busy.

Yeah. Um, you know what? I gotta get going, so y’all have fun.

Okay. What the hell does that mean, Sloan Hoffright?

It means that Jude is Nicole’s baby. But not yours. Not what? He’s Eric’s. Eric is the biological father. No. No, it’s, it’s, it’s not possible. It can’t be. I hate it as much as you do, EJ, but swear to God it’s the truth. Yeah. And why should I believe a lying kidnapper? What would I have to gain from lying about something like this?

Look, I know this is a shock, okay? But you and I, we want the same thing, right? We both wanna save our marriages, so if you wanna hold on to Nicole and not have our lives blow up, you’ve gotta keep this secret to yourself.

I extends through the hour class. So are the days of our lives.

Sweetheart, you were panicked that Chanel was lost in a blinding snow storm. You did what you needed to do. What I thought I needed to do? To be a hero. Not only to be my daughter’s savior, but to prove to her and the rest of the world that Paulina Price is fearful. Indomitable. She would lay down her life for her child.

But Abe There was also my ego. I thought that if I could save her, I would be perceived as a hero. Like I said, but now all I feel is terrible guilt and regret. Go

on, say it, say it. I told you so. I deserve to hear that. You’re not gonna hear it from me. Come on. Let’s get you to bed. It’s been a long day and there’s nothing we can do about it right now.

I can check in with my baby. Mm hmm. That’s what I can do. I’m calling Chanel so she can hear again how, how sorry I am and just how very much I love her. Oh, that was awkward, huh? No, I’m sure Nicole just thought we were tired, like we said.

Ugh, it’s Mama. Not answering. Is that, is that mean? No. It’s okay. We’ll call her back tomorrow. Yeah. I feel bad. It’s just, I know that she’s hurting right now, but I’m just too tired and too confused to talk to her right now. She’s gonna understand. I can’t even wrap my head around the fact that I’m pregnant.

Yeah. Yeah, I mean, me neither, but, but when I first found out, God, I was so, so excited. You know, just, just picturing us as, as parents. Just knowing that we made a baby together. Just makes me feel so close to you, you know? I feel that way too. So excited after Kayla broke the news to us. Yeah. Before we realized there could be a problem.

I, Johnny, I wasn’t even sure that I was ready to have a baby this soon. And, and I know that you weren’t either. You’re right. I wasn’t. But now that it’s happening, I mean, I, Chanel, I love you so much. And the idea of having a baby with you, it just feels awesome and amazing. And just. Picturing you holding our baby.

What? The fact that there could be problems. It gives us a lot to think about. And we, we do have options, you know?

I must say I am appalled at the depths of your deception. Especially since you know damn well there is a DNA test proving that Nicole’s baby is mine. I have the results in my safe, in fact. I switched the results.

You what? I switched the results for obvious reasons. No. No, no, no, no. You couldn’t have. This is just another one of your sickening lies. How I wish it were. Well, I don’t believe you. So we’ll just have to do another DNA test, won’t we? Great. Go for it. I’ll swab the baby and I’ll give you Eric’s toothbrush.

Wow. You know, I thought you were scum before. Oh, shut up! You know, lashing out at me is gonna get you nowhere, EJ. You know, now that you know the truth, you and I, we’re on the same team. We’re gonna have to work together to avert disaster. Because if Eric and Nicole ever find out that they’re sharing a child, that’s it for us.

Game over. Get it?

Mayor Price claims her actions were justified because she believed her daughter was in danger. Did she refuse to elaborate further? Yeah, Chad called her. She blew him off. It’s not like her to rebuff the press. I know. And it seems like a huge blunder on her part. It seems really obvious that it would be in her best interest to At least try to defend herself.

Tell her side of the story. Maybe we wait a couple hours before we publish. Try to reach out to her again. I, I wish I could do that, but in fairness, she, she’s had ample chance to respond. Are you, is that, are you okay? I used to do PR for Mayor Price, and I happen to like her. She hasn’t used me in a while, but I know, well, I mean, she’s great, and I, I totally understand what you’re saying, but Steph, I can’t hold off on publishing this and allow another paper to scoop us.

Aren’t you gonna run it by Chad first? Well, to be honest with you, it’s my call as the editor in chief. Chad actually started the story and he asked me to finish it, so I feel pretty certain he’ll approve of my decision.

Voicemail? Damn. Well, she’s probably sleeping. Oh, no, Abe. I’m sure my daughter is angry as hell with me right now, and I don’t blame her one bit. Oh, she’s not angry, Paulina. I think that she and Johnny are just trying to process everything. Right. Trying to process that not only is Chanel’s pregnancy at risk, but something may, may go wrong with their baby.

All thanks to me. Oh, Felina, you know, I keep telling you. Don’t make things so hard on yourself. I mean, what’s done is done. And all we can do right now, for Chanel and Johnny, is be there for them. Pray for the best. Yeah. You’re right. Yeah. So right now, why don’t we just table this discussion, get some rest.

Yeah, okay. Yeah, that’s Yeah, that might, that might be best. Oh, that’d be wise. Okay. Um, but you know, first I think I’ll take a hot bath. That usually relaxes me. I love you, Paulina. Well, I’m glad someone does. Cause you know, right now I’m not feeling very lovable.

When you say we have options, I assume you’re talking about. Terminating pregnancy. Chanel, hey, look at me.

I love nothing more than to have a baby with you. Have lots of babies with you. It’s just, because of this radiation issue, it complicates things. Obviously, I mean, we don’t even know what the risks are. Right. And uh, Kayla says that we might not know until after the baby is born. Which complicates things even more.

Oh, Johnny, I love you. I love you so much. And just knowing that I’m carrying our baby, I just Oh, Heather, how I wish we could just be happy. Oh, I wish We could just be happy. DJ?

Honey? Is Is everything okay? One

of my favorite customers, a girl named Felicity. She has Down Syndrome, and she comes in to Sweet Bits every morning. And she watches me knead the dough, make the donuts, the long johns, the eclairs. The eclairs are her favorite. Yeah, yeah. No, I’ve, uh, I’ve seen her in there before. So intently watching you do your thing.

Yeah, intently. Yeah, that’s the word. Yeah, but Johnny, she is just, she’s so sweet. And she says that she wants to be a baker one day and have her own bakery. And so, I’m going to hire her as soon as she’s old enough. And, you know, even though, I don’t know. Our family has probably had to make some sacrifices for her.

I’m sure that that can never outweigh the joy that that sweet girl must bring into their lives. I’m sure it couldn’t.


Even with this radiation scare, And even if Kayla says that there could be something wrong with my life

My feeling right now is So what? Maybe he or she or they might be imperfect But who is it? And I think that as long as They have us to love them and to care for them, and they love us back, then that would still be a blessing. Right? Yeah. Yeah, definitely. Definitely a blessing.

I am already loving this so much. Sharing the space with you. Hey, this is our space, okay? This home, it’s yours now, too. Yes, it is. Yeah. I mean, how lucky are we, huh? To be so happy and so in love. I am so grateful, and I am not taking you for granted. What are you thinking? Just Eric. You know, when we ran into him earlier, he just, I don’t know, he just seemed so unhappy, so down.

Yeah, he did. Yeah. I don’t know, it’s so strange, too, because I know how, like, I know how thrilled he was to be a dad. I don’t know, maybe, maybe he and Sloan are just having, like, marital problems. That’d be my guess. Yeah, she is Seemingly an extremely difficult woman. To put it mildly. Yeah, well. I just hope everything works out with him.


Hey, Vic. Hi. Did you talk to Leo?

Yeah. He was wasted. He could barely stand up, let alone have a conversation. So he didn’t I don’t know. Do you have anything to say about your accusation? Um, well, I kind of responded by passing out. You know, by the end of it, I kind of felt sorry for him.

EJ, you You seem rattled. Oh, no, uh, it was It was just a long day at the office. And I had to deal with some, um, Unexpected issues. And I assume you also had a long day since you’re still up and working. Let’s, come on, let’s go to bed, shall we? EJ, wait, wait.

There’s something I need to tell you.

And I I should have told you this before, but um, Remember, you know, when I told you about the article that Chad assigned me about the homeless of Salem? Yes, and I said I was feeling better after you told me that you wouldn’t be walking the streets alone, that you’d have your photographer with you. Yeah.

Um, but what I didn’t say was that Was that photographer is, uh, Is Eric.

Oh, my God. Oh, my God.

Hello? Stephanie, it’s Abe Carver. Have you seen the Spectator article on Paulina? Yes, I just read it. I tried to call Paulina and warn her, but, um, it went straight to voicemail. Yeah, well, what were we going to do about damage control? At this point, not much. It’s already out there. It would help if Paulina did release a statement explaining why she did what she did.

And where is Paulina? Why isn’t she calling me about this? She’s, she’s taking a bath right now. She hasn’t seen the article. Stephanie. Do you think this scandal is going to hurt her political career? Abe, I hope not, but time will tell.

Chanel, you have the biggest heart of anyone that I have ever known. It’s one of the many reasons that I fell in love with you. And I agree with you. 100%. I think that any new life is a blessing. And I think you and I are totally going to nail this parenting thing. Yeah, well speak for yourself, okay? I happen to be a very immature and self centered and not great mom material.

What? I patently disagree with that. I just got finished telling you what a great big heart you have. Remember that? Mm hmm. Okay, and as far as being irresponsible and immature, Chanel, you own your own successful business. Okay, you show up, you wake up every single day without fail at 4 a. m. to go to work.

If anyone’s irresponsible or immature, it is you. Probably me. I mean, my only job title is trust fund baby. I don’t know. Stop. No, you are so mature. And you have a great work ethic. You just, you have to find your calling. That’s all. You have so many talents, Johnny DeMera. Well, thank you. And with this baby coming, maybe it is time for me to find my calling, as you put it.

And grow up fast.

EJ, listen, um,

I will quit this job at the Spectator if that’s what you want. I mean it. No, no, it’s, it’s, it’s fine. I’m not uncomfortable with you and Eric working together as long as you’re okay with it.

I am. And it doesn’t, it doesn’t bother me. And I’m sure I, I will be assigned a different photographer with my next story. It’s just business. And, and I know that I’ve known him forever. And we have a bond of sort. But that relationship is in the past, EJ. You are my present.

And my future. Yeah. Hmm,

that’s interesting. It doesn’t really look like your taste though. I mean, judging by the other artwork in your house. Yeah, uh, right, um, well, it actually is not. It’s Jordan’s, and uh, I think she got it at an art fair or something. Oh. And she didn’t think to take it with her when you broke up? She wanted me to have it.

Okay. Well, how about you have it in the closet now? Okay? Okay. How about me? Better?

Oh, yeah. Definitely. You know, now that I think about it, you haven’t really told me much about Jordan or your relationship with her. Well, all you need to know is that she was Clyde Weston’s daughter. And she’s certifiably insane. So then I can guess that it didn’t end well for you guys. No, no, it uh, in fact it did not end well at all.

Well, we sure knew how to pick them. Yeah, we did. But the good news is, we have improved immensely in that regard.

Um, so I’m just, I’m just walking this through, but, since you work for the Spectator, is there a conflict of interest issue at all if you take on Paulina as a, as a client again? Are you telling me I have to choose? Between the two, work for Paulina or quit working for you. Woah, woah, woah, woah, woah, woah, woah.

I’m not saying that at all. The last thing I want in the world. It’s for you to leave the spectator. I’m just, uh, I’m flagging it. Well, I appreciate your concern, Everett, but I’m a professional. I can assure you that I won’t cross any boundaries. Of course you won’t. You are the utmost professional. I’m sorry if I, if I put you on the defensive.

I think, uh, I think we’ve been talking too much about, like, work related stuff, right? Yeah, yeah. There has been a lot of that lately. I know. It’s exhausting, isn’t it?

I was thinking How would you feel about doing something Just you and me, um, not work related, maybe fun related. Fun related? Too soon, it’s too soon. I guess it depends on what kind of fun you’re talking about. Yeah, um, look, I know we need to take this slow, if there even is a this. I don’t blame you at all for being cautious with me, for being guarded.

Okay, I don’t want to pressure you at all, in any way. I know that. I mean, it’s been really, really confusing for me. Everything that’s happened.

I guess I’m just, I guess I’m just feeling a bit self protective right now. That’s what you should be. I totally get that. And just so you know, when we do this fun related thing, whatever it is, um, It can be whatever you want it to be. We can be friends, or It can be something more. If you’re not ready, I totally understand.

Yeah. Okay. That sounds fine. Yeah? Mm hmm. And, uh, I am partial to fun, so You are partial to fun. Huh. So what did you have in mind? Well, I was thinking, um, you know, we used to play pickleball in Seattle? Mm hmm. What do you think of that? Mm hmm. Yeah, no, that was, that was really fun. Especially for me, because I usually, uh, kicked your butt.

Oh, wow. Okay. Little bit of an overstatement. Little bit of an overstatement. I, I won that one match, I’m pretty sure. There was that one. Do you want to give this another go? Sure. Let’s do it. Okay. So, there are actually, um, ports on the other side of the park. So Check our calendars? Yeah. Oh,

wow. Oh. You know those, uh, essential bath oils Marlena gave me. Oh, that really did the trick. Oh, and at least now I feel, uh, ooh, somewhat relaxed. Ah, and you know, I thought about what you said, Abe, and, you know, you’re right, you know, it was probably just a sleep, you know, when I got her voicemail, so I will not read any more into that than that, you know, when she didn’t take my calls.

Oh, and I just, you know, I need to stay positive in general, and just have faith that everything will be all right, and, oh, you know. Well, if it turns out otherwise, we’ll just deal with it because we’re tough. We’re resilient. For all we, we all love each other. We all love each other with our respective hearts.

Hey, Abraham. What’s wrong? I hate

to be the one to show you this. A radioactive mayor?

I’m sorry, baby, for calling so late, but I feel just terrible now, sweetheart. I love you so much, and I hate that I’ve caused you to be sad, put your pregnancy in any kind of jeopardy. It’s killing me. In fact, please forgive me. Please call me back.

Mama sounds upset. Yeah, she does. She does. I just, it’s, it’s complicated because I, I love my mom and I hate that she’s so miserable right now, but also I just, I can’t deal with the drama tonight. You think she’ll understand? Yes. Yes, I’m sure she will. And hey, you need to start thinking about yourself, okay?

And This little baby of ours. And I’m here for whatever you need. And, although I hope, and I pray, that we receive reassuring news from the doctor.

Even if we don’t, then we are going to handle that. Together.

Yes. Yes, we will. Okay.

Sloane, I, I hate what Leo did to you. And what I don’t like is that you didn’t come to me about it.

I’m sorry, Eric. It was wrong. It was. No more secrets, alright?

No more secrets. Ever. Promise. Where’s Holly? Did she go to bed already? She did. She had a little bit of a rough night. Just overwhelmed with all the schoolwork she has to catch up on. Oh, I’m sorry that she’s struggling with that. I know. But I think it’s important that she not overdo it. Not put too much pressure on herself.

And I think it’s just as important, by the way, that Holly’s mother not overdo it. You are a working woman now, so I hope you’ll heed that advice, young lady. Uh, excuse me, look who’s talking. Okay, okay. Uh, how about we both not? Overdo it. So, maybe we should think about a vacation. Oh, that sounds like a lovely idea.

But maybe we should wait, since I just started a new job. And we should probably wait for Holly to get out of school. But, you know We’re the only ones here, cause everyone went to bed. So. Yes. Ow! Oh, I’m so sorry, I think you had a horse in my watch. I’m sorry. You

know, I am so happy to finally have these out of stores where I can see them every day. They look great. They do. They do, right? Yeah. You know, when I lived above the pub in my little room, I hardly had any wall space to hang anything. You know, all I could hang was like little pictures with frames. But now, it’s really starting to feel like home.

Yeah. This is my phone. Oh my God. My divorce papers.

It’s over, Rafe. It’s, it’s, it’s finally over! Oh my gosh! It’s great news! Amazing news! Oh my God. By the way, since I knew it was going to happen, I got you your favorite champagne to celebrate. Oh my gosh, that’s so thoughtful of you! I already chilled it. Oh! Hiding it over here. Okay. Yeah. Ah, excuse me. Voila.


Okay. Wow. To

us. To our beautiful future. And to our great good fortune in finding each other. Here, here. You know, it’s kind of ironic that I’m celebrating my divorce more than I even celebrated my marriage to Bobby. I mean, I fell for him hard. I did. I mean, but then really quickly, he just turned really cold and very distant.

I don’t know. It was just like someone like flipped a switch. But now I’m so incredibly relieved. That I do not have to worry about him. I am finally free. I am free from him. Mentally and legally. Yes. And I I’m incredibly relieved.

Because I love you. And I love you. You are my one and only.

Okay, you ready to hear my pickleball availability? Um, can we figure it out later? I have a deadline for another story. Oh, okay. Yeah, just um, call me when you have your schedule figured out then. I will. See you later.

Is everything alright? Fine. But if I don’t get ready, I’ll become very grouchy. Oh, yeah. Well, I definitely want to avoid grouchy you, so, uh, I’m out of here.

Hey there. Hi. Drinking alone? I’m just having a beer after work. You and me both. Mind if I join you?

Sure, have a seat.

My name’s Bobby. Alana.

Well, I just spoke with Stephanie and she’s going to help us come up with a statement. To explain your actions. But, Abe, this article, it’s just, it’s just telling it like it was. I mean, like it is. Clearly I was in the wrong. Irresponsible. Reckless. And it’s way past time that I face the music.

So? We have a lot to think about. A lot to be happy about. To be worried about. Yeah, that too. But, we are going to face those worries. With strength. Hm? And with love. Right.

But for now, I think we should just close out the rest of the world. At least for tonight. Yeah. Yeah? Yeah, let’s do that. Okay.

I am so grateful for you, Johnny.

I’m so grateful for you, my love.

You know what, EJ, I, I think that maybe we’ve been taking each other for granted lately. I never take you for granted. You know what I mean, okay? Listen, Look, we do talk a lot to each other, and we have meals together, and we watch TV together, and we discuss our kids, and how certain people drive us nuts together.

Oh, yes.

But what we haven’t nearly been doing enough of It’s pretty warm going. Mm hmm. Yeah. Watch your step. So we’re good now? No more secrets, right? Yeah. For sure. Open and honest.

Open and honest about everything. Right? Yeah. About everything.
