Rejoicing in us as we speak.


Hmm? Uh,

Hey, Justin. I’m good, thanks.

Probit’s been completed. Okay.

Oh, wow, um, Yeah, no, I, I, I knew it was gonna be a lot, I just Okay, I will wait to hear from you. Well

Victor’s estate. It’s worth more than I even imagined. As is my inheritance, obviously. Oh, my God. That is, that’s such great news. I am, I’m so happy for you. Oh, my. Wow. We’re going to be set for life. I mean, you’re going to be set for life.

Morning, Kristen. There you are. Is, uh, is Rachel ready to go? Oh, well let’s hope so. She’s upstairs changing her outfit for the third time. I’m not sure who she’s trying to impress. Hold on. Hey, Rachel! Rachel, your daddy’s here! Hurry up, or you’re gonna be late! Oh my goodness! Here they are! My darlings! Hi! Hi, Mom.

Constantine. So nice to see you. If you don’t wanna wait, uh, I can have Harold take her, or one of the drivers. No, no, no, no. I, I, I wanna take her to school. Okay. Well, in that case, uh, why don’t you join me for some coffee? Uh, Rachel, uh, she had a blast at the aquarium. Yesterday and uh, she really loved having her daddy there too.

Yeah, it was uh, it was fun. It was fun. I mean, I would love to be able to spend more time with her if I could. Of course you would. Of course you would and I know Rachel wishes that too. And Brady, you know, it’s certainly in the realm of possibility.

Little early for visitors, isn’t it? Top of the morning, who goes there? It’s Steve.

Hey John. I asked Steve to come by. Yeah, why’s that? What’s going on? Because we have a plan. And I think it’s time that we let Steve in on it.

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

not necessary, Doc. We got everything under control here. Constantine is a dangerous man, and I want you to have backup. Now I know there is some Tension between you and Steve right now. But that’s exactly what Constantine wants. So are you going to let him drive a wedge between you after 40 years of friendship?

Listen, John. I don’t blame you for hating what I did. I hate it too. And I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make up for it. So will you please tell me what’s going on with you and Constantine?

Don’t do that. What? What did I do? Don’t, don’t tell me that it’s within the realm of possibility for me to spend more time with our daughter. Well Brady, it’s true. It’s true what? What? If, if what? If I just forget about her? The fact that you, you know, have put me through hell all those years and we just kiss and make up.

Oh, if I forget about the fact that you used our daughter as a way to get back at me for acting sanely from your insanity. Okay, Brady, you know, I am so sorry that you can’t let go of your resentment of me. The way I feel about you goes way beyond resentment, but let’s not do this. I don’t want Rachel to come down here and see us fighting again.

Can we stop? We can stop. I will let go of the subject of us. Good. So.

Oh, Rachel, um, said that she got me a, uh, a gift, a souvenir from the aquarium. She, uh, she did, she did. I actually have it. Um, it is a very nice keychain. Oh, that is so sweet. I’m going to treasure that. I hope it wasn’t too expensive, assuming that you paid for it. I, I, I paid for it. I did. Funny thing is, it’s just Rachel wants to pay me back when she gets her allowance.

Well, I will make sure she does. And, um, speaking of money, I just wanted to let you know that I won’t be hitting you up for child support after this month. I know that you were left out of your grandfather’s will. Mm hmm. Chris and I will continue to make those payments because I can’t pay you back. And I’ll continue to accept the visitation scraps that you’re willing to give me.

Because I know sooner or later you’re going to screw up, like you always do. And I will regain full custody of my daughter. Oh, Alex, I am so happy for you. I mean, I know that you were, you were expecting a really large inheritance, but this is, this is exceeding your expectations. Yeah, yeah, yeah, it is. Wow.

Amazing. You know what? I know that we’re due at Titan, but I think I think we need to celebrate. Yeah, you think so? I think we need to as well. In fact, I’m gonna take the day off, and I’m giving you the day off too. Yeah, well, you don’t need to work today or ever again for that matter, Mr. Heir to the Fortune.

Question is, what the hell am I gonna do with the fortune? I mean, obviously, besides buy myself a mansion. A yacht. A private plane and tickets to outer space. Well, you could donate it to charitable causes. I’m kidding, of course I’m gonna do that. I have a few other ideas what I’m gonna do with it as well.

I bet you do.

I’m sure Alex is very pleased with his inheritance. But as for me, How about it? For sake at all, just to have Victor back. Of course you would, Maggie. Because you’re not a greedy mercenary person. I’ve been very fortunate. I have more money than I could ever need, which is why I intend to share my wealth.

As I’m sure Victor expected I would. What do you mean? Oh, it’s a decision I made long ago. That if Victor was predeceasing me That I would become a philanthropist. I would donate the bulk of my inheritance to all worthy causes


Turned me back into the pawn What? When? And how? When we were back in Caracas, you remember Megan Hathaway? She used a card to brainwash us. How do you know that? It, uh, it came to me in a memory. And what turns out, Constantine has that same card. Well, how did he get it? I have no idea how he got it. I have no idea how he knew how to use it.

All I know is the night that he lured me to the park pretending to be a new client, that’s when he pulled it out on me. My God, John, why didn’t you tell me any of this before? I didn’t remember anything until it happened again just the other day. And

right when he pulled that card out on me, and he dropped me back into the pond for the second time, that’s when Doc unexpectedly showed up, so all he could do was quickly pull me out of it. That’s when Doc and I kind of figured out something was going on. I asked John what he remembered about the conversation with Constantine, but He didn’t remember it.

So I knew that he had lost time. She knew something was happening. But she also knew that there was a way for me to fight back.

Fight. This is cause for a celebration. And I, I don’t know a better way to celebrate than with a little caviar and champagne, which I’m gonna go get right now. Wait a second. You can’t have champagne. But you can, and I can have sparkling cider. Okay, then I will get some sparkling cider as well. Okay. I’ll be back soon.

Show those flutes. Yes, show the flutes, I will. Thanks, baby. They say the best things in life are free, but I just happen to be shallow enough to like a few things that aren’t. So, Mr. Alex Kyriakos, heir to the massive fortune, we’re gonna do a lot more than drink bubbly to celebrate. Right. Mom. I am so proud of you, but not at all surprised that you’d be so generous.

Well, don’t give me too much credit. I obviously have been very fortunate not to need any more money than I already have. So, Justin is going to significantly up my charitable donation and underwrite several social programs. Very generous, as Sarah said. Baby. You know, I still feel terrible that Victor He split all of his assets just between Alex and me.

While everyone else was, for whatever reason, I can’t even begin to fathom what’s left out of his revised will. I mean, I want to respect his wishes, but I also think that it’s right that I should share a significant portion of my wealth with his other heirs. Like Beau and Phillip and Brady and, you know, Xander and Justin.

Maggie, no! You, you can’t do that.

Well, thank God you figured that out. But you’re going to fight back? How? And how can you two be sure that Constantine turned John into the pawn a second time? You want to take this one, Doc?

On the night that Constantine put John in a trance, he was still not himself when we got home. He seemed to be in a fog. Distracted. Anxious. John, come sit down. Sit down, right now, sit down. Right here, with me.

Lean back. I want you to be aware of your breathing. Take deep breaths. Go ahead. Easy, just easy, deep breaths. That’s good. Okay, let yourself go. Start to feel yourself relaxing. With every breath you take, double your relaxation. That’s good. Let it all go. Let everything go. Back to your breathing. Deep breath.

You’ll hear me. You’ll remember everything we talked about. Okay. You’ve done this before. Now when you feel that you’re ready, just gently raise your hand.

Breathing. Keep breathing. You’re doing fine. Good. Okay. Let it go. You’re there. You’re there. I want you to think back to earlier.

I want you to tell me what happened with Constantine.

And possibly, because it happened so recently, the Hitlerism was effective. And I was able to take John back into the room with Constantine from before I came in and Oh, God. I can see everything. I remember everything. That’s good, that’s good. Easy, easy. Easy. You’re doing fine. Tell me what happened.


He produced a red pagoda card.

He waved it in front of my face and I, I just lost, I lost all control.

And then all I could, all I could do was Just listen to his voice as he started talking about Maggie. What’d he say about Maggie? What’d he want you to do? He told me that my mission was to steal the signed pre nap that he and Maggie had out of the Kiriaka safe. Son of a bitch. I knew it was only a matter of time till he would try to take control of it again.

The question was, when was that going to happen? So we’re prepared.

What I meant to say was Was, was, was what? That Maggie should donate her entire inheritance to you, Constantine? Don’t be ridiculous. I signed the prenup. Not a penny will be mine. I, I, I just don’t think that Maggie should part with her entire inheritance without giving it a lot of thought. I have given it a lot of thought, Constantine.

Mom? For years. I mean, in fact, even before Victor died. I thought, what will I do with this inheritance if I survive him? Regardless of any of that, Who exactly are you to weigh in on Maggie’s decision, Constantine? I mean You’re not related to her. You’re just some Johnny come lately in her life. She’s only marrying as a bloody favor so you don’t have to leave Salem.

Sanders! I’m sorry, Sarah. I’m not gonna stay quiet about this one. This guy has the nerve to tell Maggie not to give her money away after she’s just finished explaining that it’s her heart’s desire. And we all know it’s a noble heart’s desire. thing to do, especially since you’re already a very wealthy woman.

Who the hell is he to criticize a decision? Hello Constantine. Explain why you said what you did. Please, I need to know. So defend yourself. Explain yourself.

God, what the hell is taking him so long?

Oh, hello there. Oh, Alex, I am so happy to see you. I am even happy to see you. Tell Rachel that I’ll be waiting for her in the car. Oh, I’ll tell her. Damn, you are looking sexy. Thank you,

So you say you prepared. We began preparing John to resist the power of the card. To be honest with you, we weren’t sure it was even possible at first. Look, we’re aware that there are great advances in deprogramming techniques. You’re, you’re both aware that they’ve been very effective in Harris’s case.

So I contacted my colleagues over at Bayview and um, with their help, we’re hoping the same techniques Can work for John. So, Doc and I, we, we tried those techniques on me. Right here. You’re doing great. You’re doing great. Continue breathing.

Continue relaxing. You’re doing great.

All right. I want you to listen to me right now. I’m gonna tell you something important.

Whenever you Are confronted or approached with a pawn card. You will have a mantra. You can repeat it to yourself.

The mantra is a positive presence defeats a negative past. A positive presence defeats a negative past. Past. Past. Past. And then last night, Maggie called us over to tell us about her engagement to Constantine. But of course, we already knew about that from the groom to be, but we really acted surprised.

And then Maggie got called away on a meeting, Doug left as well, and that left Constantine and I alone. Unpredictably enough. He pulled out that card and ordered me to steal that prenup.

So what happened? Did you get it? Oh yeah.

So I handed over the prenup to Constantine and he looked it over.

So then he took out a lighter. Set the print up on fire and he burned it in a trash can.

That is all she wrote. So your technique didn’t work.

To the contrary.

Thank you, Maggie, for allowing me to defend myself. Oh, so to speak it is. Sand here.

I love what a big heart you have, Maggie. I apologize for overstepping. I respect and admire your the nobility of your plan to donate your fortune in the most honorable of ways. Well, thank you, Constantine. For clarifying your reaction.

Oh, sorry. I’ll take care of him. Oh, no, no. Please let me. Any minute, I will take care of you. My little angel here. Well, it is time for my walk. I shall be leaving as well. At the risk of repeating myself, Maggie, I just want to say how proud I am of you. Thank you.

Man, who’s going to take you to the garden? Come on.

Like hell he’s proud. I mean, my God, how can your mum not see through that greedy son of a bitch? Shh. Well, it was only obvious to me that he was horrified at her plan to give away her money. No. No. It was obvious to me too. Pretty thrown by it. Thrown? I was more than thrown. I was appalled. And then, well, Maggie gives him the opportunity to defend himself.

And he trots out some lame half assed apology and everything’s fine. He’s a grown man, Sarah. A dangerous one at that. You heard my mom. He is not gonna get a dime from her. I mean, there’s a prenup for one thing. Still. Still what? I don’t think that’s gonna stop him. Baby, come on. He signed a legal document that stipulates he will not get anything from my mom.

Nothing. How is that not going to stop him? I don’t know. I just have a very bad feeling about this. Chill the flutes.

Did you forget your key? Hi.

Oh, hi, Brady. I, look, I, I, I should have called. I’m sorry. I wanted to talk to you and I was driving by and I was just hoping that you might be alone and at home. Well, I’m not going to be alone for long because, um, Alex is actually due back any minute now. Um, I wouldn’t hold my breath on that, actually. What?

Um, may I? Looks like you’re celebrating something. Yeah, um, the champagne is gonna be for Alex, of course. He just found out that his inheritance has come through. Ah, yeah, that’s, that’s, that’s great. Good for him. Not so good for you, though. I know. It’s really unfair that, um, Victor left everything to Maggie and Alex.

Yeah, I try not to think about that. Anyway, that’s not what I wanted to talk about. Okay. What, what is, what is it? Therese, I, uh, look, I just, I just came from the DiMera mansion and Alex, uh, He showed up and he and Kristen are hanging out.

Really? Really. I don’t know. He just waltzed right in like he owned the joint and just walked right up to her. A little bit of a fat sloppy kiss on her. Right in front of me, actually. I see. Well, you didn’t come home the other night. And, uh, given what you’ve just witnessed, they They’re obviously sleeping together.

Obviously, yes. And that doesn’t upset you? No. No. I’m over her. I mean, I The only reason I give her the time of day is because we share a daughter. Okay? Couldn’t care less. Are you upset? Me? Are you upset that Alex and Kristen are currently, uh, an item. Yeah, I am, actually. I mean, I broke up with him, so really I’m to blame, but God, this might have just been the biggest mistake of my life.

One of the biggest, anyway.

Oh my God, Alex, that was, uh, some performance. Have you ever thought of trying your hand in acting? That wasn’t acting, Kristen. Anyway, the reason why I’m here is to ravish me. Actually, I told Theresa that I was going to run out and grab a nice bottle of champagne to celebrate being the new heir to a rather large fortune.

And then it dawned on me that the best thing Champagne is undoubtedly in the DiMera wine cellar, which I will pay for, of course. Oh, don’t worry about it. I’ll go fetch you a bottle. Oh, Well, but, you know, before you go, though, it also occurred to me that right now, at this moment, I would much rather celebrate like this with you.


look, I, I admit that Constantine’s reaction to my mom wanting to give away her inheritance was a bit off. Off, Sarah. It was more than off. It was outrageous. To you. But not to her, obviously. Um, can we please get off the crass subject of money and just talk about how lucky we are to have each other and our wonderful little girl?

I’m sorry if my grave scene right now made you think that I’m not the one. Extremely grateful to your mom for being so caring and generous with us over the years because I am very grateful And I’m even more grateful to be sharing my life with you Because you Are the love of my life You’re the love of my life So, I mean what you’re you you’re

in love with Alex Is that why you’re sorry you broke up with him? I don’t know if I’m in love with Alex. I’m not even sure if I know what that means. I’ll tell you what I think it means. It usually means when you have a romantic attachment to somebody and they are just incredibly important to you and and it feels like you can’t live without them.

Then yeah, I am. I’m in love with Alex. Sort of, anyway. Sort of. Well, especially because he’s heir to this big fortune now, right? So, okay, sorry, that was cynical. Uncalled for. I’m perfectly aware that you don’t have a mercenary bone in your body and that you’d be perfectly comfortable living in severe austerity.

Who the heck is that? Who’s that, Alex? I guess he did forget his freaking key. Teresa, I I’m out.


So I know this whole thing started, you know, about trying to make Brady and Theresa jealous and all, but Maybe I’m just speaking for myself, but I am thoroughly Enjoying the ride.

I am thoroughly enjoying the ride as well. But, you know, I can’t go any further. You know, it’s just a fun ride. Oh, I know. Because you only have eyes for Brady, right? Well, he is the father of my child. And, um, the And you and Teresa? You only have eyes for her? Yeah, I care about her, yeah. But that doesn’t necessarily stop me from succumbing to your many charms, Miss DiMera.

Oh, Alex. It’s coming with.

How can you say your techniques worked? John, you still sold the prenup and let Constantine burn it. Not yet. Partner, that prenup right there. The one that Constantine burned was a fake that I gave him. Little did he know, I broke into the Kiriaka safe earlier that evening.

I stole the original prenup and I replaced it with a fake, and that is the one that I gave Constantine. And that is the one that he burned.

Brilliant, huh? Yeah. Brilliant.

Here we are. Our little angel is quite calm now. She actually gave me a couple of smiles. Well, that’s because she adores her nana. Oh, I adore her. Her precious girl. Um, mommy, we have to, we have to get going. But, um Before I do, I want to talk to you about Constantine. Okay. Um, well, Xander and I We’re talking, and um, we were just wondering what happens after the wedding.

I mean, I know that it’s a marriage in name only, so he can stay in the country, but then what? Hmm. Well, I’m not sure I know what you mean. I think what Sarah’s trying to say is that we’re concerned on your behalf, Maggie, about how Constantine’s going to support himself. I mean, is he going to get a job? Or is he just going to continue to live here?

Off of you? Forever?

Nice to see you, lady. Mr. Millionaires, what are you doing here? Theresa, I need your help to, uh, to, uh, help me get a, um, a wedding present. Wedding present? Yes. Who’s, who’s getting married? Well, I guess you’re the last to know that Maggie and I are engaged. What? Yes, we are going to be tying the knot, as you say.

Well, I hope I am not disturbing you. You know, Teresa, we can talk about this later, huh? Yeah, sure. I’ll text you later, um, about wedding gift ideas. No, by all means, um, continue your discussion. I was on my way out anyway. Are you sure? I am sure. Okay, thanks for coming by Brady. I’ll talk to you soon. Right.

Well, soon. My God, how do you just show up here with no warnings? I’ll tell you why. Maggie just announced that she’s giving most of her fortune to charitable causes. And to some of Victor’s heirs, including Brady. So what? So what? So, you’re giving me Alex’s half is now only more urgent. Because I need my cut as per our plan.

Yeah, well, I’m not sure that that’s gonna happen. Well, you better make it happen, Teresa. And you better find a way to get Alex back into your bed and keep him there. If not, there will be consequences. I will have to say, this is not a good idea. This is better than going to the gym. Really? Yeah. Really? So you’re telling me that making love to me is better than what?

A few miles on the treadmill? Uh huh. 30 minutes or so on the elliptical? Infinitely better. Wow. High praise. Wow. What are you doing? Are you in the media? No, no, not, not that. But I am thinking I should probably head home. Oh. I told Teresa I was running out to grab champagne and caviar. So, yeah, she texted me a few times.

She’s wondering where I am. Okay. Well, I guess you just have to go. Yeah, I probably should.

Although, um, Although, um, what? I mean, I Could tell her that, you know, It’s taken me a very long time to drive and all this traffic to find them Finest champagne and finest beluga caviar. Uh huh.

I mean, what do you, can I say that? Yeah. I can say that, right? Yeah, you can. Okay. You know what else? What? You can say that. Now, what else do you want to say? I just, I don’t think there’s much of a rush. Well, I don’t think there’s much of a rush either. I hate it.

Well, this is something to celebrate. Yeah. You conned the con. Yeah, but I don’t feel much like celebrating. I wanted to believe that Constantine had forgiven me, but now I, I know that not only did he plan to have his revenge on me, but also we were right all along about his intentions about coming to Salem.

Yeah. He wanted to take everything that Victor had. His money? And Maggie. Now we’re going to have to tell her all about it. Uh huh. All about how he lied about his feelings for her. And his intentions to steal Victor’s inheritance away from her. If she adores him, she’ll be heartbroken. Yeah. Hand loaded for bear.

Knowing Maggie, that bastard won’t know what hit him.
