I don’t want to hear any excuses, Rolf. I want those DNA results now. Well, how much longer do you need? Okay, well, the second you get them, let me know. Oh, damn it. What? Oh, some greeting. Sloan, what the hell do you want? Did you get the test results yet? I’m working on it. I told you the truth, EJ. Jude is Eric and Nicole’s biological child.

But hey, run all the tests you want. Oh, believe me, I will. Well, when you find out that I was right, do me a favor and ask yourself this one question. Do I really want to test the strength of my relationship with Nicole by her finding out the truth?

Aren’t you worried that she’ll go running back to Eric the minute she finds out they created a child together? Thanks for letting me know. Uh, if you need anything else, um, Just give me a call, okay? There they are, two of my favorite ladies. Uh, who are your other favorites? Well, my daughter Sydney, of course, and my mother, whom I have called for Mother’s Day, otherwise I wouldn’t hear the end of it.

So, are we ready? Yes, sir. I’m ready for some eggs benny and strawberry cheesecake. Ooh, that is quite the combination. Uh, are you sure you’re okay going to the bistro? Yeah, no, the restaurant didn’t have anything to do with what happened on New Year’s Eve. I was actually really enjoying my time with, with everyone before what happened.

Well, shall we? Yes. Ladies first. Hi. Ah! My goodness, such nice manners, my son.

Maybe you did a good job on me after all. Maybe I did. I know you were doubting him there for a while. Yeah, well, doubt, you know, kind of goes with the job description. As a parent, I gave your grandmother lots of things to wonder about how, uh, she went wrong with me in my teens. In my twenties. In my thirties.

She never gave up on you. Just like you never give up on me. Never. You are my one and only son. And I will always be there for you. And I’m always gonna fight for what is best for you. Even if you and I don’t agree on what that is.

This is for you, Mommy. Happy Mother’s Day. I love you so much. Art loves you too. He made you that picture. Dad and I talked about bringing her, but she’s too young to understand. Maybe next year. But it’s okay. Dad says you’re not really here. You’re in our hearts, so that’s good, because that means I have you with me wherever I go.

Yes, you do. We all do. Happy Mother’s Day, Abby.

Happy Mother’s Day, Grandma.

I know you’re here all the time watching over us. I know you saw the fire. And I know you see me doing my best to rebuild your home. Beautiful house. Trying to make it everything it always was.

You know, it would be a help if you could give me just a hint on how to open the time capsule. It’s driving me crazy.


I know mothers besides you in heaven with all the saints and the angels. Where you belong.

Julie? Happy Mother’s Day. And the same to you, Paulina. Not feeling like such a wonderful mother these days, but,

Don’t be so hard on yourself. Especially not today. The children adore you. As do your grandchildren.

As does everyone who knows you, Paulina.

Bless you for saying that, Julie.

Bless you. Well, I’m glad you two had a great day. Yeah, that place is pretty cool, isn’t it? What? Come on, it’s dinner in a cave. Okay, okay, um, I get it, I get it. Well, tell Sid I say hi, okay? Uh, no, no, nothing new to report here. I will. Okay. Happy Mother’s Day, by the way. Mom. Yeah, I love you too. Ciao. How’s your mom?

She’s great. Yeah, I, uh, I made reservations at Trattoria Luvi, which is this exclusive restaurant in Amalfi. I’ve m mo’d Sid the money to take her. Oh, what a good son. Well, you know, I try. Hey, speaking of which, aren’t you You about to be late to meet your mom for lunch? Um, actually, I decided to cancel. Why?

Are you feeling okay? Yeah, I’m fine. It’s just, God, this is gonna sound awful. I just, I can’t take seeing my mom today.

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

Doesn’t sound awful. You’re just being honest. Yeah, but I still feel guilty. You know, Mama, she’s like this ferocious lion and she’s always protected me. Like, all through my childhood, she would go toe to toe with anybody who tried to hurt me or didn’t treat me right. And so I know how much she loves me.

But it’s just that now that I’m pregnant, you know, her decision to leave isolation and put us at risk, it just I get it. Okay? I get it. And so I just really can’t sit across from her right now and make chipper small talk. You know? I’m mad. And she’s just gonna fuss around and try to make everything better, and she can’t.

And that’s just gonna make me more mad. You don’t have to explain yourself to me, okay? I love my mom. But sometimes I feel like we’re both better off being on separate continents. Did you No, no, she’d be on the next flight back to Salem. Yeah, that’s why I didn’t tell her. Wish me luck. I am going to call my mom now.

And tell her that I am not coming. Okay. And Jules hand painted this little card. It was so adorable. Oh, a future artist that one. Yes. And Carver leaned in to give me a kiss on our video call this morning. Oh! Warmed my heart. So, are you and Chanel going to get together to do something special today? Mm, we’re going to lunch at the bistro.

Ah, love you. You know, I really should get going before I wind up.

Speaking of. Chanel, honey, are you on your way to the restaurant? Yeah! Oh, um, Mama, I’m actually sorry. I’m not gonna make it today. Oh, what’s the matter, baby? I’m feeling a little queasy, and so I’m just gonna stay in bed. Oh, of course, of course. I understand. You take care of yourself, sweetheart. I will. Okay.

I’ll talk to you later. Mm hmm. All right. Bye bye.

Happy First Mother’s Day, Mommy. Just made you a special breakfast. Oh, my. How sweet. Well, I would have served you in bed if you hadn’t gotten up so early and gone. Uh huh. You know, Jude’s an early riser. Mm hmm. I brought you some snacks to nibble on before the main course. I think I would rather nibble on you than the main course.

Oh, baby, I am the main course. Sleeping? Not yet, but soon. Good thing I’m a patient man.

Mom. I’m not an idiot, okay? I get what you’re saying. You’ve told me like a thousand times. Well, then make it a thousand and one. Can we just order, please? I’m starving. Okay, well, I don’t know about you, but I am in the mood for trout. You have got to be kidding me. What? What? What do you mean, what? Is that why you were so gung ho to bring me here?

Because No! Are you kidding? No, I brought you to one of the nicest restaurants in town because I wanted to treat you on Mother’s Day. Which I’ve been saving up for, by the way. I had no idea that they would be here. Holly, I wasn’t born yesterday. You wanted to come here so you could see Tate on the sly. On the sly?

Seriously? Yeah, seriously. Why else would you want to come to the bistro on Mother’s Day? Mom, do you even hear yourself? What? I didn’t know he was gonna be here. Besides, I didn’t make the reservations. EJ did. Guilty. You’re dead?

Yeah. I’m good, buddy. I’m just really proud of you. You know that? How strong you are. And how wise you are. Or knowing that mommy’s always with you. She’s always right here in your heart. She definitely is. But I still like coming to visit her here. We can come whenever you want. Charlotte’s with us next year.

She can help pick flowers. Yeah. And I bet mommy would love that. You know, I know that we didn’t get to be a family as long as we all would have wanted. But I am really grateful for the time that we had together. Me too. I love you, Thomas. Biggest discount. I love you too, Dad. Biggest day. Well,

I suddenly have no Mother’s Day plan. Is Chanel okay? Oh, yes, yes. She’s just feeling a little under the weather. Not up for going out today. That’s a shame. It, it isn’t, uh, Not radiation poisoning. Oh, that’s a relief. Doctor gave her a complete physical, said she is fine. Sure, it’s just a little spring cold, you know.

And you know those can take you by surprise. Yes, of course. And it is allergy season. I am sure when she’s feeling better, the two of you will have a belated celebration. But she’s okay, which I hope is soon. I’m sure it will be.

So how’s the new job? It’s going great. Chad’s surrounded by a good team. For the, for the most part. Leo. Yeah, he’s the exception. I was gonna tell Chad that Lady W accepts payoffs. It was not a payoff. Leo did not ask me for money. I offered to help a friend out, is all. Yeah, well, good friends don’t do things like that.

Look, Leo is a hot mess. And he just got dumped. Yes, by a felon who’s serving hard time. Still shred him to pieces. I don’t want him to lose his job right now, too. Look, please. Please just drop it as a Mother’s Day gift to me. Only for you.

Thank you. I’m still gonna keep an eye on him. I get it. But, I think Leo’s troublemaking days are truly far behind him. Scene.

Gosh, I thought there’d be more people here today. I hope they don’t close as quickly as they reopened. Yeah, me too.

Wait. Stefan DeMera was running drugs out of this place. You want it to stay open? Oh, no, no, no. I have no love for that man or Clyde West and the two of them are gonna go to hell for all I care. I mean, there are good people working here trying to make a decent living, you know? And it’s not like there are many decent restaurants on every corner in this town.

Yeah, that is accurate.

How’s your job going? Yeah, it’s good. Yeah. Well, at least you have a job. Yeah, what are you gonna do now?

I’ll figure something out. And when I do, you’ll be the first to know.

Ooh! Holly, they have your eggs benny. I don’t see any strawberry cheesecake. Oh, they have that too. I checked the menu online. Okay, I know what I’m getting. Me too, but first, a toast to the guest of honor. Moi? Mm hmm. To my lovely wife, the most wonderful mother I know. Besides my own, which I have to say, otherwise I’ll get struck by lightning.

Thank you, honey. Holly, do you have anything you would like to say? Yeah, I do. Um, Mom. I know that this has been a really rough year for you. And I’m sorry for my part in that. For making you worry about me and scaring you to death. But you helped me and you quite literally saved my life. So for that, I’m extremely grateful you’re my mom.

Happy Mother’s Day. Thank you, my darling girl. To my lovely wife. Cheers. Love you both. Love you.

It’s kind of a strange Mother’s Day for me for obvious reasons. Yeah, I get that. I’m just glad your dad made us that appointment with that specialist and that not too many people know I’m pregnant. Yeah, I mean, lots of couples wait a while to tell people anyway. It’s not unusual.

Hey, what is it? You Well, it’s just what I, uh, I feel guilty for what I’m feeling right now. Guilty why? Well, we talked the other day about how A new life is always a blessing, no matter what. And we talked about sweet Felicity, and how she has Down Syndrome, and how she is just so great, and she must bring so much joy to her family’s lives.

But, well now Now, now what? Well, now Children with birth defects could need lifelong care. And obviously that depends on, you know, what those defects are. But I read that that could put a lot of stress on a marriage. And we just started our marriage again. And I just, I hope that you and I can both be strong enough to handle whatever is it.

Perfect about our baby because I don’t want anything to change between us. Nothing will change between us. Okay. I promise.

Nothing will.

He’s finally asleep. President took him that long. He was fighting it all the way home. This is for you. Oh my gosh! You didn’t have to. Of course I did. It’s Mother’s Day. Topaz? It’s Jude’s birthstone. Here,

let me help you.

I love it. It, uh, represents joy and good fortune. I googled it. There’s a lot of things that Jude’s brought into our life. It’s perfect. Thank you, Eric. This has been the best day. Yeah, well, there’s more to come. There’s more? Well, a whole lot more. So,

prom? What about it? Aren’t you excited? Sure, yeah, I guess so. Oh, come on. It’s a rite of passage. How was your prom? I didn’t go. You didn’t go to prom? I don’t know why I thought you’d be like prom queen or something. Yeah, no. I was too cool for school. Or at least I thought I was. I was dating somebody older.

He was definitely not in high school. What did grandma have to say about that? You don’t want to know. Actually, I think my father really came down on me for that one. Huh. What are you doing this afternoon? You want to go tux shopping? My schedule is wide open. Tux shopping? That’s what you want to do on Mother’s Day?

Absolutely. What color is Sophia’s dress? I don’t know. You don’t know? We need to find out. I don’t know. You need to get a matching bow tie and cummerbund. Really? That stuff has to match her dress? Well, it doesn’t have to. It’s just, you know, it’s nice if it does. So, tell me about her, the rum date. She’s just this girl in a couple of my classes.

That’s all I get? I don’t really know her that well, Mom. And yet you asked her to prom. Yeah, just kind of happened. Okay, so who’s taking pictures of the two of you? Are you going to go pick her up from her house? Mom, you’re thinking way too hard about all of this. Okay, I’m sorry, I’ll stop with the questions.

I’m just really glad that you’re not going with, you know who. Yeah. I’m so glad that you’ve moved on. It’s not like I had a choice.

So, Holly, did your mother tell you she just wrote her first article for the newspaper? She did. About the homeless. Is it scary going out at night to talk to them? No, it’s not scary. It’s sad and humbling. You don’t go alone though, right? No, gosh, no. I don’t go alone. Eric goes with me to take pictures. Oh, that’s good.

I can’t wait to read your article and see your name at the top. Oh yes, it’s called a byline. Very exciting. Yeah, it’s almost as exciting as being district attorney and CEO of a major corporation all at the same time. It’s a balancing act, certainly. Well anyway, um, when all of us come up for air, EJ and I were talking about getting away.

You know, maybe going to Chicago for the weekend, or flying to New York, seeing a couple shows. What do you think? Um, yeah, but not until after prom. What? The junior senior prom. Honey, um, I’m sorry, but that’s, that’s not happening. We’re not going to prom.

Nah, you beat me! You let me win! I did not. Give me a break, dad. I know you chose not to block me on purpose. There are my two favorite fellas in the world. What about Uncle Doug and Eli? Darling, all the men in my life are marvelous. Happy Mother’s Day, sweetie. Thank you, sweetie. Where’s our darling Charlotte?

She went to a princess brunch. A princess brunch? Oh, how royal. Yes, she dressed up as the queen. But us peasants were thrilled to join you for brunch. Well, I’m thrilled, too. So, sweetheart, what have you been up to today? We visited mommy today. Of course you did. Well, I talked to my grandmother today, and I told her about all of the reconstruction we’re doing at the Horton house.

They’d be so proud of everything you’re doing, Julie. Well, thank you for saying that. I can’t wait to move back home. Me too. May 3. I mean, Aunt Maggie is a wonderful hostess, but as they say in The Wizard of Oz, there’s no place like home. Should we do it now?

Happy Mother’s Day, Aunt Joy. Oh, oh, thank you very much.

Goodness, this is wonderful. Charlotte and I made it for you to hang up in your new house. Well, I will, sweetie. I know exactly where I’m going to put it. It’s perfect. Thank you, darling. Hey.

Having kids. In general. Okay, that’s gonna change the dynamic in any relationship. Yeah, I know that, Johnny, but our situation, it’s Happy Mother’s Day! Oh, my God. Wait until you see what I brought. Uh, what are you doing here, Mom? I didn’t hear the Well, Harold, he was outside trimming rose bushes or something.

He let me in. Look what I have! Soup, crackers, and a special tea blend that helped calm my stomach when I was pregnant with you. I’m going to make a party. everything for you myself. Uh, is it all right if I go rummaging around in your kitchen? Look, no, Paulina, that is totally unnecessary. Very, very necessary.

My baby’s having a baby. We’ve got to take care of her. Yes, and I agree with you, but look, Chanel, right now she’s very tired, and we thank you for bringing all of this stuff. It’s very generous, but right now she needs to rest, okay? And I think it would just be better if we all hung out another time. You know, I’m sorry.

No, no, no, no need to be sorry. I, and I promise you, I won’t stay very long. So how, how about I just visit you for a few minutes? I’d rather you didn’t.

So mom, is there anything new with you and Alex? Not really. So it’s over? I don’t know. Can we talk about something else though?

What do you mean I’m not going to the prom? Honey, the last time you went to a nighttime event, you almost died. You can’t be serious right now. I’m very serious. I’d be too worried about you, and besides, you’re grounded, and you know that. But mom, I already have a date. No, you don’t, because you and Tate are no more.

I’m not going with Tate. I’m going with Aaron Green. Who the hell is Aaron Green? Well, maybe if you were involved in my life a little bit more, you’d actually know. Holly, that was uncalled for. Your mother I wasn’t talking to you. Hey, watch it. And I am involved in your life, which is why I’m catching on to your little game here.

Oh, that nice little Happy Mother’s Day speech you gave me to butter me up so you can go to prom? No! No way, because I didn’t think you would say I couldn’t go. My God, this is so unfair. Perhaps we should save this until we get back home. That is a great idea. Let’s go. I, I can’t believe this. So what, I’m just gonna be grounded forever?

Why can’t you just let me live my life? Thomas,

I think you are the best looking, and the brightest, and most important, like your mother and your father, the best person I know. I’m very proud to be your auntie. I’m proud of you, too. Oh, thanks.

Dad, Uncle Roman said I could go check out the kitchen when I’m done. Um, can I go back there? Okay, yeah. Stay with Uncle Roman. Don’t touch anything. Roger that, Dad.

Watches too many movies, that one. Oh, don’t they all? He really looks like you. But I think personality wise, there’s a lot of Abigail in him. Yeah, he sure does. And so does Charlotte. She’s starting to look more like her mom every single day.

This must be a really difficult day for you, darling. Yeah. I miss her today. I mean, I do every day, but she just never goes away. Nope. Never does. I miss my son David today. Of course, he’s gone forever now, but Those mothering feelings, they never go away. I’m so very lucky I have grandchildren to, to love and to nurture and, and as fate would have it, your children and you too, Chad.

And we thank God for you. We’re so lucky to have you. Happy Mother’s Day, Julie.

You don’t want me here? What I want is for you to stop trying to fix everything. What’s happening to me right now, it can’t be fixed. Oh, well, we don’t know that. You’re right, Mama, we But what we do know is that when you heard I was lost in that snowstorm, you decided to make the snap decision to leave isolation, commandeer a snow plow, and expose me to radiation.

And now we are dealing with the consequences of that. I feel more terrible about this than you can imagine. My guilt is off the charts, I, it’s killing me. Mama, I love you, but there is no way that you are going to turn what’s happening to me right now into your own personal tragedy. What? Oh, oh, no, I would never ever do something like And yet you are.

And that is why I didn’t want you here.

Look, Mama, I I just need some space, okay? Johnny and I need space. So I hope you can respect that.

Of course. I understand.

Now I’ll, uh, show myself out.

This is such B. S. Okay, honey, keep your face down. Dammit, mom, I have been working really hard at school. My grades are up. You even gave me my phone back. But what? I can’t go spend one night with my friends? It’s gonna be the biggest night of the year. Everybody’s going to it. Not everyone. And, and honey, you’re, you’re a junior, you can go next year.

But I’m sorry, this year it’s a no. No, it’s not. Sit down. You are being totally unreasonable. And you are making a scene. I hate you, mom. I really, really hate you. Damn it. Let her stew. No, I can’t. Oh my god, what a drama queen. You know, you don’t always have to comment, mom. Is that girl not being obnoxious and rude?

You are so lucky to be rid of her. This has been such a nice morning. I’ve had a good walk, a good breakfast, a good time with my hunky handsome husband. Go away! Holly, Holly, stop following me! Leave me alone! Honey, can we just talk about this please? You know what? You’re a total hypocrite. You screw up your whole life and here you are having a grand old time living in some mansion.

Me? I screw up once and I’m punished for eternity? You’re the worst mom on the planet.

Oh, great. I just broke my mother’s heart on Mother’s Day. I’m a horrible daughter. No, you are not a horrible daughter, okay? Look, you stood up for yourself, right? You stood up for yourself and you were honest. And your mom needed to hear that. Yeah, but did you see her face? How, how hurt she was. Hey, you did the right thing.

It’s not like you told her you never want to see her again. You just told her that you needed some space and you do. Yeah. I just, I hope she doesn’t get too worked up about it, you know? Your mom’s a big girl. Yeah. Yeah, she is. She’ll be alright. She knows I love her, and I just, I’m going through a lot right now.

And Johnny, I mean, since we’re being honest, You know, I really appreciate you being here for me and listening to everything I’m going through and you’re saying all the right things. But at the same time, you haven’t really told me how you feel about it. I, uh, thought that I did. But I’ll tell you again.

It’s your body. And I support whatever you decide.

What I do know is that We Created this baby out of our love for each other.

And that means a lot to me. Yeah. It means a lot to me too. And, I just, I really hope that, If, Everything isn’t okay, even though I, I hope and pray that it will be. But if it isn’t, And I pray that we will, we will be all right because our love will get us through it. Right? Yes. Yes it will. I believe that with all my heart.

Okay. Okay.

Dear Lord, please watch over my daughter and her baby. Amen. And let my stupid mistake hurt them. They didn’t do anything wrong. This is all my fault. Oh, Heavenly Father, I beg you. Let Janelle’s baby be healthy and strong.

You know, you are the glue that keeps this family together. And because of you, the Horton Legacy will live on. Oh boy. You, uh, you don’t know how much that means. Having you and the children living in the same house with us, that has given Doug and me some of the sweetest days of our lives. Well, we are blessed to have you, that’s for sure.

You know, Charlotte was, uh, really young when Abby died and, um, while having you there,

to love her, and to mother her, it just, uh, meant, uh, meant a lot. Don’t worry. Don’t worry. We will keep the memory of Abigail alive for her. For Thomas, too. I promise. Holly,

what’s going on? Mom’s being a total hypocrite. She’s got a bug up her ass because I made one mistake. I’m not perfect like you ever were. Honey, I never said I was perfect and this isn’t about me. Nicole, can I steal Holly for a few minutes? Give you two a chance to cool off. Yeah, fine, but I’m waiting right here.

Hey, what’s the matter? What’s going on? What’s going on is mom won’t let me go to prom. Eric, could you talk to her, please? And just tell her she’s making a big deal out of nothing. Holly, you almost died. That’s not nothing. Oh my god! Okay, yeah, it’s fine. I screwed up. Once. So what? That means she gets to lock me up in a tower like I’m Rapunzel for the rest of my life?

Whoa, whoa, whoa. She’s just trying to keep you safe. Listen, my sister Sammy, she was your age. She and my mom Things are different now, Eric. It’s not how it was in the Stone Ages.

So, my daughter shouted in public that she hates me. Happy Mother’s Day, right? Yeah. Well, what happened? I told her she couldn’t go to prom because of what happened on New Year’s. Oh. Yeah. You know, um, You’re a mom. And if you knew you could lose your child, wouldn’t you do everything you could to prevent that?

Somebody’s calling. Uh huh. Uh, would you mind knocking him while I just make a bottle? Yeah, sure.

Rolf, tell me what you know.

You’re sure? There’s no doubt that this baby is Nicole and Eric’s.

I’m sorry too.

More sorry than you know.
