What’s this? Happy Mother’s Day. To the most amazing mother in the whole world. The whole world? Open it. Wait, it’s not Mother’s Day yet. Right, but you’ll be on duty tomorrow morning. Go on, open it.

Oh! World’s best mummy. Victoria picked it out herself. She pointed right at it and said, That one, da. Oh, she’s talking now! Yeah, but she swore me to secrecy because she only speaks to me, so Is that so? Yeah, fourth sentences. And yet here you are, betraying her confidence. Please don’t tattle on me. Neither.

Well, please tell her that mummy says thank you. I’m gonna bring this with me tomorrow night, show it off. Tomorrow? Yeah, we have dinner at my mom’s, remember? Oh yeah, the Mother’s Day dinner. Can’t wait to see Constantine again. I’m I’m Not exactly dying to see him either, but we did say that we would go. So I trust that you will dust off your best fake smile, and be your most charming, polite self.

Don’t count on it. Xander, please! Okay, okay, okay, I’ll do my best. And speaking of celebrating mothers, did you reach out to your little favorite? Mother’s Day in Scotland was in March. Yeah, but still, you, you could have, you could phone her. Yeah, that’s not gonna happen. Come on, don’t you think it’s a little bit weird that I have, I’ve never met your mother?

In all the years that we’ve known each other, I, I haven’t even spoken to her on the phone. You, you never talk about her. Some things aren’t worth talking about. I’m gonna go check on my daughter, okay?


lilies! How beautiful! Oh my goodness. I used to grow them in Greece, where I would like to take you. In fact, I would like to take you all over Greece on our honeymoon. Honeymoon? Constantine, you know our marriage will be in name only. That does not mean I cannot repay your many kindnesses by showing you the most beautiful islands in the world.

Oh, Marlena. Hi there. Maggie, is this a good time? Uh, yeah. I was just here with Constantine. He brought me a bouquet of flowers. Sweet. Um, you know, I’m wondering if you could, um, come over. There are a few things I want to talk to you about regarding the wedding. Oh, okay. When? Would right now be alright? Now?

Uh, yeah, I suppose so. Good. I will see you soon. Alright, she’s coming over. Yes, she is. I just hope she’s able to listen to reason about the man she is planning to marry.

Everywhere I go, there you guys are. You know, you guys are like birds on a dog, you know that? All right, believe me, this is the last place we want to be. We’re here about the book. But, there’s nobody here. Well, you never know. People pop out of these tunnels all the time. Well, the not so secret tunnels are being fumigated, so talk.

Okay, well, the book we found at the bistro is encoded, and Clyde wants the images electronically so there’s no physical drop off, which means, obviously, apprehending him is going to be a problem. Dammit. Okay, look, we don’t know if he would have shown up anyway. He probably would have sent one of his flying monkeys to pick the damn thing up.

Okay, so what happens now? We’re going to the police station. Which is where you come in.

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

No way in hell. You guys have already had me go to the police once. I’m not doing it. You can leave. Okay, Stefan, we need your help. I don’t care. Okay, let’s just Would you listen, please? We found what looks like blood on the outside cover of the book. Blood? Yes. So I’m going to take it to the lab to have it analyzed, and I just don’t want anybody on the force to know that Clyde spoke to Ava about the book.

So here’s the story I’m telling, and here’s the story you’re going to back me on if anybody asks. Let’s hear it. It’s pretty easy. You just stumbled across the book on your day to day at the bistro and you gave it to me because I’m a detective. More or less true. Okay, it’s better this way. Stefan, we can get what we need.

Can we count on you? I’m in.

It’s plausible I definitely could have stumbled across the book and I want that son of a bitch stopped once and for all. Yeah. And he will be. We are gonna get him this time. We just need to work together and get Clyde on the ropes. If Clyde Wesson’s going down, I want a ringside seat.

And wait. So I see. I, I hope our little angel understands. Oh, our little angel is nothing if not understanding. Oh, she told me to tell you, you’re welcome, mummy. And I love you madly. I love her madly. So, um, you said that it was, um, that Mother’s Day was in March in Scotland. Sarah, please. But I was just wondering if, you know, maybe you reached out to your mom back then.

Look, baby, I, I can tell that this is a sore subject, and I don’t want to push it, but don’t you think that Victoria should get to know both of her grandmothers? In this case, no. I don’t. And you would be in complete agreement with me, Sarah, if you knew my mum, so can, can we just drop that? Okay. I’m sorry.

It’s obviously very triggering to talk about your mother. Yeah, it is. Sarah. Victoria is very lucky to have Maggie as her grandmother. She’s the best there is. And the only one our little girl needs. Okay. Now, I need to dash. I’ve got some unfinished business to take care of. With Stefan? Yeah. I need to find out if he is the one who set me up to take the fall for Harris shooting.

He’s not just gonna admit that to you. Yeah, but I have a plan. Don’t worry, it’s nothing illegal. And if it turns out it was him? Then he’s going to be very sorry.

Thank you for coming so quickly. You say you wanted to eat, you’re just seeing me. Fellas, not working today? Well, we just wanted to talk to you first. All of us. Wedding plans? The three of you? Please sit down.

Maggie, this is about Constantine.

What is this? An intervention? Kind of. There are some things you need to know, Maggie. Well, let me guess. I need to know that Constantine is a bad guy, he’s using me, and I shouldn’t be marrying him. All of which I’ve heard before. I thought we were past all of this. I wish that were true, but it’s not. I don’t want to hear any more.

You know, I can’t believe that you lured me over here for more of this. I’m not interested in anything you have to say, any of you. Maggie? This is very serious. And you need to listen.

Who let you in? Ava and Harris, on their way out. What do I get for not escorting them out myself? Great. Take it this isn’t a social call. Because our last one went so well. What did you expect? You came at me with some cockamamie story about how EJ called you to put out a hit. Ridiculous. Yeah, well, especially given what I know now.

You were on Clyde Weston’s payroll. By coercion. Well, whatever you got there, it’s been gnawing away at me. I mean, what if I’ve been focusing on the wrong DiMera? What if you were the one who set me up?

Thank you for my mug, sweet pea. I know that daddy did help though. He loves us so much, doesn’t he? What do you say with him and his mummy? If you find anything out, you have to tell me, okay? But now it is time for our walk. So, what do you say? Should we go out and feel the spring breeze? Aww. Who could that be?

Who’s there? It’s Constantine. Constantine?

Sarah dear, may I have a moment of your time?

So, Um, You were telling me that Constantine has been brainwashing you? Yeah, that’s what I’m saying. Well, explain how and why. Well, Maggie, I realized that after I had spent a little time alone with him that I was missing time, so to speak. Something wasn’t right, so after I discussed it with Doc, she and I kind of figured out what he was up to.

And then we, we started working on some new techniques to try to deprogram me. To, to mentally prepare me for the next time he would try this so I’d have a way to fight it. How did you fight it? John was able to fool Constantine into thinking that he was under his control, which he wasn’t. Maggie, he ordered me.

To steal the signed prenup out of your safe so he could burn it. And what he didn’t know was I already took the original prenup out of the safe and I replaced it with a duplicate fake when he wasn’t around. This is your original prenup. That’s the real deal right here.

I can’t believe this is true.

Yeah. We wish it were true. We’re sorry to have to tell you that. I still don’t understand though. How is he brainwashing you? He’s in possession of a card. It’s a red card and it’s got an ancient pagoda on it. Oh yes. He said it reminded him of his daughter, Katerina, that she apparently carried it with her as part of her Halloween costume the year she died.

No, no, no, no. Just more lies. Another fabrication, Maggie. It is actually the same card, the same device Stefano used to brainwash me years ago. That’s right. And we have no idea how Constantine got a hold of it. Now I know why he was so panicked when he thought he had lost it. He was frantic, searching for it.

He must have had a reason. His whole plan depended on it. Oh, John. Maggie. When he Ordered me to steal the prenup out of your safe. I witnessed the whole thing. Me as a John Black of sound mind. He stood right in front of me. He held that card out. He thought he had brainwashed me and he ordered me steal the prenup pawn.

Stealing. That lying bastard.

Uh, well, actually, Victoria and I were just on our way out. I promise I won’t be long. Ah, but first things first. Hello, my little one. Ah, have you heard the news? I am going to be your granddaddy. Um, sort of. You’re gonna have a wonderful time with me. Yes, yes, yes. Um, yeah, she does enjoy her time with you.

Unlike most of your mother’s family and friends, huh? You know, I am so grateful to have your support. Uh, well, yeah, I mean, as you know, you didn’t have it at first, but I’ve seen how happy you make my mom. Yeah. And, um, you know, losing Victor devastated her. So I don’t want to see her spirits fall again. Such a wonderful, devoted daughter.

My mother means the world to me. She’s a very special person. That she is. And I am so grateful and lucky that you are blessing this marriage that I can have with my precious Maggie. So that I can remain here in Salem with her. Yeah. You have it. Under one condition. You have to promise me. Constantine, you have to promise me you won’t break her heart.

You think I set you up? That’s crazy. I don’t give a rip what happens to you. I think you’re lying through your teeth. I mean, if Clyde could make you move drugs for him, it’s not a stretch to think that he could order you to set me up too. Especially seeing as you don’t give a rip about what happens to me.

I didn’t set you up. Now get out of my house. Don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out. Uh, I don’t know who Clyde hired to shoot Paris Michaels. And I don’t know why I’m the lucky sap who has to take the fall for it. But I’m almost certain you were the one who planned the setup. Almost certain?

How convincing. Based on what exactly? I don’t know. Your motive? Means? You had the money to buy those posh designer trap pants that look like mine and slip that princely sum into my bank account? 50k is hardly a princely sum. I never mentioned the amount. It’s so funny that you should know it.

Hey, hey. How’d it go? I talked to Rafe and Jada. Gave them the book. And let’s just say they were avid listeners. Great. And did they buy it how you got it? Totally. I just told them that the book fell to the bottom of the wine bottle when Stefan was holding it. Oh, what a relief. Okay. And the stain on the cover?

Uh, they believe it’s blood too, but we’re gonna have to wait till the lab confirms that. Alright, well, Dill definitely had a violent streak. You know, he attacked me, so I had to shoot him. So, if it does turn out to be blood, obviously someone else faced his wrath. I’m sure it wasn’t pretty. You know, being Clyde’s enforcer, I’m sure Gil had to do all kinds of things.

Assault, murder, torture, any, I mean, anything’s possible. Yeah, yeah, you know, part of me doesn’t even care and doesn’t want to know. I know, but we gotta know. We need the facts. And hopefully DNA match to the bloodstain in our database. Yeah, but a match doesn’t necessarily mean it’s gonna help us find Clyde.

Maybe not. But it might help somebody else get justice.

So he came to town to give condolences to me after his dear friend died. I really thought he cared about Victor. He just saw how vulnerable you were. Maggie, your guard was down. It’s understandable. So he never forgave Victor, did he? Or me. He came here to avenge Katharina’s death and steal Victor’s fortune.

Look, Maggie, we know that he was under considerable pain at burying his daughter. But that doesn’t explain or excuse what he did. Everything he said to me was a lie.

The man came here to steal my husband’s money. And everything else that he had. Including me.

Damn him. He has messed with the wrong redhead.

Okay, so, the Salem PD has the book and, uh, all the photocopies of the pages are with your guy. Yeah, my Navy SEAL buddies. Just waiting on them to crack the code. They got this new software, so hopefully we can get a beat on Clyde’s location when he opens the files. Yeah. Gosh, this could be the thing that could bring him down, huh?

Yeah. You know, we’ll be doing the world a favor after everything he’s done. I just wish you didn’t have to go. I know, I wish I didn’t have to go either. But, I’m all in on this, Ava. I just got a check on the progress of my guys, I told them I’d be there, you know, we work as a team. I know, I know. I was just hoping that I could convince you to stay.

Cause I’m gonna miss you like crazy. I know. I’m gonna miss you, too. Aww.

You know, um, my flight is in a few hours, so, I guess I have enough time to finish this beer and, uh, take a nap.

There’s no way that in the couple hours you have left, you are gonna take a nap. Oh, no. No, no, no, no, no. No, you come here. Hmm. I think the 50K was mentioned in the Spectator. No, no, no. It wasn’t. I own half the paper, remember? Every word of that article had to be cleared with Chad and me by Everett. Isn’t that a conflict of interest?

Your own paper, writing about you as the suspect? My own paper, fact checking. Ah. Well, E. J. knew about the 50, 000. I’m sure he mentioned it to me one night over drinks. Huh. Oh, of course. You two just having a lovely drink together. Nice try, mate. I can’t prove you’re lying, but I’m sure you’re the one who set me up, and you aren’t gonna pay.

You threatening me now? You’re damn right I am.

I swear, on the river Styx, that I will never hurt your mother. And though, I know you would prefer that she would have remarried under different circumstances, please realize, I care for her very much. Yeah, um She cares for you too, but What?

When my father, Mickey, died, I, I never thought that my mom would find love again. And then she and Victor had this amazing second act. But I don’t know if she’ll find love a third time. What I do know, though, is As long as she’s with you, that can never happen. So you believe I am standing in her way? Don’t get me wrong.

I am. I’m very happy that my mom has a companion, someone that she enjoys spending time with. It’s just. Xander asked whether you would just continue living in my mother’s house forever. And that got me thinking, so I looked up green card marriages. And it could be years before you can leave. And at our age, a few years feels like forever.

Is that what you’re thinking? Yeah. Yeah. Well, when you’ve lived as long as Maggie and I have, companionship means more than anything. But make no mistake, your mother is in charge. If she ever decides to get rid of me, I assure you, dear Sarah, I will be gone.

This man has to pay. I want you to call the police. I want him behind bars. We all do, Maggie. But for what? What he’s done is despicable, but none of it’s a crime, so far. After all, Maggie, I was the one who broke into your house. Because he thought he was controlling you, like Stefano and Victor did. Yeah, and we’re gonna let him keep on thinking.

And then we’re gonna feed him just enough rope, he’ll eventually hang himself. He has to believe that his plan is playing out exactly as he expects. That’s the only way to nail him, Maggie. What I don’t understand is even without the prenup, he couldn’t have gotten any money if I wasn’t

He was planning to kill me, wasn’t he? You

know the real reason I have to leave?

Because as long as Clyde’s out there somewhere,

You’ll never be safe.

You’re doing this for me. I just, I couldn’t bear to lose you.

You know, um, when I met you at Bayview. Uh, you thought I was crazy? No, no. Yes, yes. Unpredictable. Mysterious and, you know, a little lost.

But you, um, you

changed, uh,

you changed everything for me. Hey, you changed everything for me too. You

know you make my life worth living. I love you. I love

you too. And I cannot wait for you to be back here in my arms. So, I promise I won’t be long. Okay, well you better, you better not be because I got a way of tracking down people. I don’t, uh, I don’t doubt that. Mother

has given my life new meaning. I have no intention to ever take advantage of her. I’m analogy to that. I expect no less. Your beautiful mother, her kindness and generosity knows no bounds. Choosing to share Victor’s wealth with his heirs and with the needy is so admirable.

Cherish every moment you have with Victoria. I remember Katarina at this age. I lost a daughter too, once. She shall always be with you. Yes. very much. And now I must get home. To Maggie. Goodbye my dear. Goodbye.

Maggie. We don’t have proof. But we do believe that Constantine’s plan was to do away with you After the two of you were married Sorry. And we do have a limited amount of time before his visa runs out, so that we can get him to commit a crime that we can pin on him. But right now, our number one priority is just keeping you safe.

You’ll have a lot more important bringing that dirt back down. Well, you’ve obviously given it a lot of thought. We have. So, are you in? Yes. Yes, what’s the plan? Well for starters This Is a microscopic ISA device that you can wear it as a bracelet as a necklace It doesn’t matter just as long as you have it with you all the time The time.

It will summon immediate help from Steve or I. 24 7. We also want to set up your phone so we can track you. Is that okay?

You’ve got to behave as though everything is normal between you and Constantine until then. Can you do that?

Just watch me.

Here. Don’t forget that. Yeah. Like I said, I still only be gone a few days. Hope they wipe these images tagged before Clyde calls back with exact instructions on where to send them. Yeah. Can’t wait. You call me as soon as you hear from him, okay? You call me as soon as you land. I will. Just want you

to be careful while I’m gone, okay? Yeah. You too. I mean it. Keep your eyes open. Do not relax. I’m not sure I even remember how. You be safe too, alright? Hey, I’m practically bulletproof. Right.

It’s gonna work. This is gonna work. Once Clyde’s gone, you’re not gonna have to worry anymore. Oh, hey! Hi. Anything exciting happen while I was gone? No, nothing, uh, to report. How’d it go with Stefan? Bloody bugger wouldn’t admit anything. I mean, I I’m more convinced now than ever that he’s the one who set me up.

It’s written all over his face. He’d be a terrible poker player with all his tells. Tells are not proof. Baby, maybe we should just let this go. What? Never. No. Alright, fine, fine. Just, just don’t go crazy and do something rash.

I’m not gonna let anyone find Or anything separate us ever again. I’m gonna take care of myself and my family. Don’t worry.

Is our little angel awake? Hey Victoria, daddy’s home. Xander

Cook. You’re getting a little too close for comfort there, pal.

Hello. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I’ll accept the call. Oh, Gabby. My love, oh my God, just to hear your voice, I feel like I can breathe again. I miss you so much. Of course, of course, of course I’m coming to see you. Yes, yes. I, I, I will. As soon as I can. It’s just I’m working so hard to get you out of there. Okay, uh, Rafe and I, we’re, we’re doing everything we can to find proof that you’re innocent, okay?

And, and, and Yeah, I will. I will. I will find it. Okay, we won’t stop at anything, no matter what. And then you and I, my love, are going to be together again, soon and forever.

Ah, well, that was a little bit easier than I thought it would be. Maggie’s a lot tougher than people realize. Doc, you being here made all the difference. She trusts you. Signal’s coming in loud and clear. She just pulled into the Kuriakas mansion. Alright, so the plan’s in motion. Mm hmm. You know, a part of me gets it.

Why he was coming after me and all. I’m thinking about, if the roles were reversed, I would never be able to forgive a man who killed one of our daughters. But for him to come after Maggie, who never wronged him in any way, I Not gonna happen. Not on my watch. Or mine. Or mine. Ah,

there you are. Perfect timing. I just had the housekeeper bring this in for us. The coffee is at the exact right temperature. You see, we are in sync. Yes, we are. And she also was kind enough to arrange the lilies I brought for you. Perfect. So, how did it go with Marlena? Uh, it was very enlightening. She had a lot of ideas to share.

She’s a very thoughtful woman. You are very lucky to have a friend such as her. I can only imagine what she might be proposing. Well, let’s just say it’s definitely going to be a wedding to remember. Yes. Yes, it will be.
