Update written by Joseph

Xander brings Sarah a Mother’s Day gift at home. Sarah points out that it’s not Mother’s Day yet while Xander notes she’ll be on duty then. Sarah opens the gift and it’s a mug that says “World’s Best Mummy” which Xander jokes that Victoria picked out personally. Sarah decides she will bring it with her tomorrow night to show it off when they have Mother’s Day dinner with Maggie. Xander remarks that he can’t wait to see Konstantin again. Sarah says she’s not looking forward to that but asks Xander to be polite. Xander agrees to do his best. Sarah asks if Xander reached out to his mother. Xander points out that Mother’s Day in Scotland was in March. Sarah says he could still call her. Xander says that’s not going to happen. Sarah finds it weird that she’s never met his mother or even spoke to her on the phone in the entire time they’ve known each other. Sarah points out that he never talks about his mother. Xander responds that some things are not worth talking about and goes to check on Victoria.

Konstantin brings Maggie lilies at the Kiriakis Mansion. Konstantin talks about how he’d like to take Maggie to Greece on their honeymoon which Maggie questions, reminding him that their marriage is in name only. Konstantin feels that doesn’t mean he can’t repay her kindness by showing her the most beautiful islands in the world. Maggie then gets a call from Marlena, who asks if it’s a good time. Maggie says Konstantin just brought her flowers. Marlena invites Maggie over as there are a few things she wants to talk to her about regarding the wedding. Maggie agrees to come so Marlena says she’ll see her soon and hangs up. Marlena tells John and Steve that Maggie is coming over, so she hopes she’s able to listen to reason about the man she’s planning to marry.

Harris and Ava go to the DiMera Mansion to confront Stefan, who complains that they are everywhere he goes. Ava says it’s about the black book. Stefan assures them that nobody is home and tells them to talk. Harris informs Stefan that the book is encoded and Clyde wants the images electronically so there’s no physical dropoff which means apprehending him will be a problem. Ava points out that they don’t know if he would’ve shown up anyway. Stefan asks what happens now. Harris says they are going to the police station which Ava says is where Stefan comes in. Stefan says there’s no way in Hell as they already had him go to the police once and he’s not doing it. Stefan tells them to leave. Ava asks him to listen. Harris reveals that they found what looks like blood on the cover of the book, so he’s going to take it to the lab to be analyzed but he doesn’t want anyone on the force to know that Clyde talked to Ava, so he’s giving Stefan the story to back him on. Harris calls it pretty easy that Stefan just stumbled across the book and gave it to him because he’s a detective. Ava asks Stefan if they can count on him. Stefan agrees that he’s in and calls it plausible that he could’ve stumbled across the book and he wants Clyde stopped once and for all. Ava declares that they will get him this time. Harris says they just need to work together to get Clyde on the ropes. Stefan adds that if Clyde’s going down, he wants a ringside seat.

Sarah asks if Xander reached out to his mother in March. Sarah says she can tell it’s a sore subject and she doesn’t want to push it, but she thinks Victoria should get to know both of her grandmothers. Xander says no and that Sarah would agree if she knew his mom, so he asks to drop this. Sarah apologizes as it’s obviously very triggering to talk about his mother. Xander confirms that it is and says Maggie is the best there is and the only grandmother that Victoria needs. Xander mentions having unfinished business to take care of with Stefan as he needs to find out if Stefan is the one who set him up to take the fall for shooting Harris. Sarah points out that he won’t just admit it. Xander responds that he has a plan, but assures it’s nothing illegal. Sarah asks what if it was Stefan. Xander says that Stefan will be very sorry then. Xander then exits the apartment.

Maggie goes to see Marlena and greets John and Steve, who clarify they all wanted to talk to her. They all sit together as Steve informs Maggie that this is about Konstantin. Maggie questions if this is an intervention. Steve says kind of. Marlena adds there are some things that Maggie needs to know. Maggie guesses she needs to know that Konstantin is a bad guy who is using her and she shouldn’t be marrying him. Maggie says she’s heard it all before and thought they were passed all of that. Maggie doesn’t want to hear anymore and can’t believe that Marlena lured her over here for more of this. Maggie declares that she’s not interested in hearing anymore. Marlena stops her and warns her that this is serious, so she needs to listen.

Xander goes to the DiMera Mansion to confront Stefan. Stefan questions who let him in. Xander says Ava and Harris were on their way out. Stefan guesses this isn’t a social call as they argue about their last one. Xander brings up Stefan being on Clyde’s payroll which Stefan says was by coersion. Xander wonders if Stefan was the one who set him up.

Sarah watches over Victoria while wondering what’s between Xander and his mother. Sarah decides she’s going to take Victoria on a walk, but Konstantin shows up at the door. Konstantin asks Sarah for a moment of her time.

Maggie questions John telling her that Konstantin has been brainwashing him and asks how and why. John explains that he realized after spending a little time alone with him, that he was missing time and something was right, so after discussing it with Marlena, they figured out what he was up to and started working on new techniques to deprogram him and mentally prepare him to fight it. Maggie asks how he fought it. Marlena explains that John was able to fool Konstantin that he was under control. John informs Maggie that Konstantin ordered him to steal the signed prenup out of the safe so he could burn it, but he replaced it with a duplicate fake. John then presents Maggie with the original prenup. Maggie can’t believe it’s true. Marlena wishes it wasn’t and says they are sorry to have to tell her. Maggie questions how Konstantin was brainwashing John. John explains that Konstantin is in possession of an ancient card. Maggie recalls Konstantin saying that it reminded him of his daughter which John says was just more lies. John reveals that it’s the same card and device that Stefano used to brainwash him years ago. Steve adds that they have no idea how Konstantin got a hold of it. Maggie says it explains why Konstantin was so frantic about the card when he lost it. John notes that his whole plan depended on it. John talks about witnessing it when Konstantin ordered him to steal the prenup. Maggie calls Konstantin a lying bastard.

Sarah tells Konstantin that she and Victoria were just on their way out. Konstantin promises he won’t be long and comes in to greet Victoria, saying that he’s going to be her grand daddy. Sarah says sort of and admits Victoria does enjoy her time with him which Konstantin says is unlike most of Maggie’s friends and family. Konstantin tells Sarah that he is grateful to have her support. Sarah acknowledges that he didn’t have it at first, but she’s seen how happy he makes Maggie and losing Victor devastated her, so she doesn’t want to see her spirits fall again. Konstantin calls her a wonderful and devoted daughter. Sarah says that Maggie means the world to her. Konstantin thanks Sarah for blessing their marriage so he can remain in Salem with Maggie. Sarah tells him that he has her blessing under the condition that he promises her that he won’t break Maggie’s heart.

Stefan tells Xander that it’s crazy that he thinks he set him up as he doesn’t care what happens to him. Xander thinks Stefan is lying through his teeth and doesn’t think it’s a stretch that Clyde cuold order him to set him up. Stefan insists that he didn’t set him up and tells him to get out of his house. Xander says he doesn’t know who Clyde hired to shoot Harris, but he’s almost certain that Stefan planned the setup. Stefan asks what that’s based on. Xander brings up that he had the motive, means, and money. Stefan then slips up and mentions the amount of money that was deposited in to Xander’s bank account. Xander points out that he never mentioned the amount, so it’s funny that he knows it.

Harris rejoins Ava in her room and says he just came from Rafe and Jada and they bought the story about Stefan finding the book and they believe it’s blood too but they will have to wait for the lab to confirm it. Ava talks about Gil having a violent streak, so if it is blood, she’s sure someone else faced his wrath. Harris is sure that Gil had to do many things as Clyde’s enforcer. Ava says part of her doesn’t care or want to know. Harris says they have to and hopefully will find a match in the database to the blood. Harris says even if it doesn’t help find Clyde, it might help someone else find justice.

Maggie goes over Konstantin coming to Salem and how she really thought he cared about Victor. Marlena and Steve point out that he knew how vulnerable she was. John points out that Konstantin never forgave Victor or him. Steve states that Konstantin came to Salem to avenge Catharina’s death and to steal Victor’s fortune. John knows Konstantin was under considerable pain in losing his daughter. Maggie shouts that doesn’t excuse what he did and that everything he said to her was a lie. Maggie declares that Konstantin came to steal Victor’s money and everything else he had, including her. Maggie proclaims that Konstantin has messed with the wrong redhead.

Ava and Harris talk about the police having the book. Harris talks about his navy buddy waiting on them. Ava hopes this could be thing to bring Clyde down, pointing out they’d be doing the world a favor after everything he’s done. Ava wishes Harris didn’t have to go. Harris assures he’s all in on this and will check on the progress of his guys to work as a team. Ava hoped she could convince him to stay because she’s going to miss him like crazy. Harris says he’s going to miss her too and they kiss. Harris notes that his flight is in a couple hours and jokes that he has enough time for a nap. Ava says there’s no way he’s going to take a nap in the couple hours he has left as they begin kissing.

Stefan tells Xander that the $50,000 was mentioned in the Spectator but Xander says it wasn’t as he owns half the paper so every word had to be ran by him, Chad, and Everett. Stefan suggests that EJ knew about the amount so he must have mentioned it over drinks. Xander mocks the idea of Stefan and EJ just having a drink together. Xander tells Stefan that he can’t prove he’s lying, but he’s sure he’s the one who set him up and he is going to pay. Stefan asks if he’s threatening him. Xander assures that he is and then walks out of the mansion.

Konstantin swears to Sarah that he will never hurt Maggie and he knows she would prefer Maggie remarried under different circumstances, but assures that he cares for her very much. Sarah acknowledges that Maggie cares for him too, but when her father Mickey died, she never thought Maggie would find love again but then she and Victor had this amazing second act. Sarah doesn’t know if Maggie will find love for a third time but remarks that as long as she’s with Konstantin, that can never happen. Konstantin asks if she believes he’s standing in her way. Sarah clarifies that she’s glad Maggie has a companion, but Xander asked if Konstantin would just keep living in Maggie’s house forever, so she looked up green card marriages and it could be years before he could leave which may feel like forever. Konstantin says at he and Maggie’s ages, companionship means more than anything. Konstantin tells Sarah that Maggie is in charge, so if she ever decides to get rid of him, he’ll be gone.

Maggie declares that Konstantin has to pay, so she wants them to call the police and put Konstantin behind bars. Steve says they all do but he hasn’t committed any crimes yet. John points out that he was the one who broke in to the mansion which Maggie complains about. John explains that they are going to let Konstantin keep thinking that he’s controlling him and eventually he will hang himself. Marlena adds that Konstantin has to believe that his plan is playing out exactly as he expects. Steve calls that the only way to nail him. Maggie starts to say she doesn’t understand as Konstantin couldn’t have gotten any money even without the prenup, but then realizes that Konstantin was planning to kill her.

Ava and Harris lay in bed together after having sex. Harris tells Ava that the real reason he has to leave is because as long as Clyde is out there somewhere, Ava will never be safe. Ava questions him doing this for her. Harris says he couldn’t bear to lose her. Harris brings up meeting her in Bayview and thinking she was unpredictable, mysterious, and a little lost but says that she changed everything for him. Ava tells him that he did the same for her and that he makes her life worth living. Harris tells Ava that he loves her. Ava says she loves him too and she cannot wait for him to be back in her arms. Harris promises he won’t be long. Ava jokes about tracking people down as they kiss.

Konstantin tells Sarah that Maggie has given his life new meaning, so he has no intention of ever taking advantage of her. Sarah says she will hold him to that. Konstantin adds that Maggie’s kindness and generosity knows no bounds. Konstantin tells Sarah to cherish every moment with Victoria as he remembers his daughter at that age. Sarah mentions losing her daughter once too and encourages that Catharina will always be with him. Konstantin thanks her and says he must get home to Maggie, so he says goodbye to Sarah and exits.

Steve points out that they don’t have proof but they do believe that Konstantin’s plan was to do away with Maggie after they were married. Steve notes they do have a limited amount of time before his VISA runs out, so they can get him to commit a crime to pin on him. John adds that right now, their number one priority is keeping Maggie safe as that’s more important than bringing Konstantin down. Maggie acknowledges they’ve given it a lot of thought and says she’s in as she asks what the plan is. John presents Maggie with a microscopic ISA device for her to have with her all the time as it will summon immediate help from he or Steve, 24/7. Steve also wants to set up her phone to track her. Marlena reminds Maggie to keep everything normal between her and Konstantin until then which she agrees to do.

Harris packs his bag and tells Ava that he should only be gone a few days before Clyde calls back with instructions. Harris tells Ava to call him as soon as she hears from him. Ava tells Harris to call when he lands. Harris tells Ava to be careful while he’s gone. Ava advises Harris to be safe. Harris jokes that he’s practically bulletproof. Harris assures that this is going to work and once Clyde’s gone, she won’t have to worry anymore. Ava and Harris then hug.

Xander returns home to Sarah and asks if anything exciting happened while he was gone. Sarah claims there’s nothing to report but asks how it went with Stefan. Xander says he wouldn’t admit to anything but he’s more convinced than ever that he’s the one who set him up as he could tell it all over his face. Sarah suggests maybe just letting this go but Xander refuses. Sarah asks Xander not to go crazy and do something rash. Xander declares he won’t let anything or anyone separate them ever again as he’s going to take care of himself and his family. Victoria then wakes up so Xander goes to check on her.

Stefan pours a drink and remarks that Xander is getting a little too close for comfort. Stefan then gets a call from Gabi at the prison. Stefan is relieved to hear her voice and assures he will come to see her as soon as he can, but he’s working so hard to get her out. Stefan says that he and Rafe are doing everything they can to find proof that she’s innocent. Stefan insists that he won’t stop at anything and then they will be together again, soon and forever.

After Maggie leaves, Steve comments that it was a little easier than he expected. Marlena feels Maggie is tougher than people realize. John states that Marlena being there helped a lot because Maggie trusts her. John notes the signal from the device is coming in clear so Maggie just pulled in at the Kiriakis Mansion. Steve states that means the plan is in motion. John talks about how Konstantin was coming after him and if the roles were reversed, he could never forgive someone for killing his daughter. John, Steve, and Marlena declare that coming after Maggie is not going to happen on their watch.

Maggie goes home and joins Konstantin the living room of the Kiriakis Mansion. Konstantin asks how it went with Marlena. Maggie says it was very enlightening as she had a lot of ideas to share. Konstantin says he can only imagine what she might be proposing. Maggie remarks that it’s definitely going to be a wedding to remember which Konstantin agrees with.
