Hey, there you are. Oh, hi. I was looking all over for you. I was hoping maybe we could have lunch or something together. Uh, maybe another time. Sorry, it’s just been a really busy morning. Hey, uh, is everything okay? Yeah, no, I just, I have a lot of homework and stuff to catch up on, so I’m kind of stressed.

Yeah, yeah, I get it. Same. Okay. It just, it seems like maybe there’s, uh, something else going on, or

Fine. Tate, I’ve been really embarrassed you saw that huge fight between my mom and I earlier. Embarrassed? Why would you be embarrassed? No, I, I just, I hated seeing you so upset and not being able to do anything about it. Have you had any luck changing your mind? No. My controlling mother has decided I most likely am going to do drunks and die if I’m not past my purview.

So, she’s standing her ground, and she’s forbidding me from going to the prom.

What the hell?

Hey there. Uh, Hey! Tell her this. I just did a little shopping. A little? Oh. Okay, maybe I overdid it a little bit, but, why not? It’s the point of having money if you can’t enjoy it, right? That is right. That’s right. I just thought you were going to be at work. Yeah, well, that’s the beauty of being my own boss.

Make my own hours. So aside from a brand new crocodile leather jacket and some basic clothing items, I bought us a ridiculously fancy coffee espresso machine with the frother and, to go with it, two smart mugs where you can actually control the temperature from one’s phone. It’s insane. And, check this out.

Voila. Wow, that, that must’ve, that must’ve really Cost a bundle. A little over a hundred K. It’s got a lifetime warranty. Makes it worth every penny then, huh? That’s right, it’s an investment. Just so you aren’t envious of my new diamond crusted watch. Yeah? I got you the magic woman’s version.

Hey there. Oh my goodness. You’re home. Yeah, earlier than I anticipated, I know. Oh, how nice. You’ve been missed. Well, I missed you too, though. Alrighty, how was your trip? Eh, it was a lot of work. Hardly any downtime. Not a lot of sleep time either. Well, maybe now you can get some sleep in. Maybe even get some more down time.

No, not just today. I’m making this whole week a work life balance. I’ll spend a little time at the office, of course, but, um, most of my time is going to be focused on my kids. And my parents. You and Dad. Oh, that sounds wonderful. I did that on purpose. Referring to you and dad as my parents because you, uh, You’ve always been a mother to me, Marlena.

You are my mom in every sense of the word. And I don’t know what I would do without you. I mean, you’ve always, you’ve always, always been there for me. Cheering me on when I’m doing well and picking me up when I’m not doing so well. And I just love you so much. I just love you so much too. And on that note, I, I understand it’s a, It’s a little late in the day, but uh, Happy Mother’s Day.

I can’t believe it. Leeshan’s blood and Gil Carter’s fingerprints were both on that black book. This changes everything. And the lab. They ran the test twice, right? Yep. Same results. This clearly connects Gil to Li Xin and his murder. How do we prove it? It’s not going to be easy. But I’m going to do whatever it takes to get to the truth and to clear my sister’s name once and for all.

Hey, Stephan, I have some news. Could you keep it down? Okay, listen. I, I found a lead. Unleashon’s murder. What? Yes, and we might have enough evidence to pin the crime on the guilty party, which is definitely not Gabby. Okay, what exactly are you saying? Okay, what I’m saying is that the love of your life, A. K. A.

Gabby Hernandez DiMera, is soon to be exonerated and released from prison, which means, my dear brother, you, I’m soon to have your wife back, as a free woman.

Extends through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.

Holly, I’m, I’m sorry. It just sucks that you can’t go to prom. Yeah, no kidding. I just can’t wait till I’m 18 and can do whatever the hell I want. Yeah, I get it. My mom can be really controlling too. Did you tell Aaron, by the way, that you can’t be his date? Not yet, but I doubt he’ll care ever since. He’s totally into Sophia.

He’s totally into you.

Yeah. Hey, what’s going on?

Wait until you see the new convertible Ferrari I ordered, Teresa. It is the SF90 Stradale. What kind of alien language is that you’re speaking? Oh, no, baby, that is Italian. Take a look at this. How beautiful is she? She’s a hybrid. Oh. That must have cost us as much as those two new watches you got us. Uh, ha, ha, yeah, a little bit more than that, babe.

But I have dreamed of owning a Ferrari like this my entire life. And not just anybody can buy one of these. In fact, they are so discriminating over at Ferrari, Ferrari. They won’t even let a first time buyer buy a new car. Ah, boggles the mind. I know. So this one’s got 1, 300 miles on it, 650K. What? Are you crazy?

Probably. But I’m okay with crazy. And you know, if Victor was ever looking for a way to make it up to me for denying my birthright all these years, I think he definitely found a way to do it. So I’m trying to let go of any resentment I have towards my father for not acknowledging his son until after he was dead and buried Well, that’s good then that you are, um, letting go of all the resentment like you said Yeah Not totally but I’m getting there.

I mean my God, you know how it felt when I first found out I was Victor’s son Even knowing I might become heir to this whole massive fortune or whatever. I was miserable. I was depressed. Knowing Justin wasn’t really my father. A guy that I actually loved and respected. My brothers not really being my brothers and just knowing that I was pretty much lied to my entire life.

I just still haven’t totally gotten over the shock of that. Miss Sadness

still upsets the hell out of me, if I’m being honest with you.

But I’m a resilient guy. And kind of a material guy, so buying all stuff like this actually eases the pain a little bit.

I forgive you, Dad.

If I’m even looking in the right direction.

Let’s hope.

Brady? This is my favorite perfume. You can only get this in a little perfume shop in Chicago, so Your father must have directed you to it. I made him promise not to get it for you, so I could get it. Thank you. I’m actually, uh, I’m running out, so it’s, uh It is a perfect gift. I like perfect. You’re welcome.

You, you shouldn’t be thanking me. I need, I need to be thanking you more often. I haven’t always been grateful. I haven’t. But I’m, I’m, I’m so grateful to you now for everything you’ve done for me and my kids and my dad. See, I not only get to have you as a mother in my life, you make my father so happy.

That makes me blessed. You mean so much to me, so much to my dad, and so much to so many people in this town whose lives that you touch.

Happy Mother’s Day. Oh, God. Oh, I love you so.

Now that we have this new information, how about we go to the evidence room, pull everything that we have got on both Gil’s and Lee’s murder cases. Because now that we know that they’re connected, maybe we see something that we didn’t see before. My thoughts exactly. Let’s go. Alright, slow down. Tell me what happened.

Alright. Um, I invited Ava over earlier, and I just, I wanted to jog her memory, see if she had any clue about Lee’s murder and something that would exonerate Gabby. And, well, at first, she denied knowing anything about it. But then, while we were there She got a phone call from Harris, and he reported a bloody fingerprint on the black book that you found here at the bistro.

Okay, so blood and fingerprint. I knew that the blood had gone to the police, but you think it has something to do with Lee’s murder? Uh, I sure as hell think so, yeah. Yeah, and I think at this, um, after they analyzed it, they found Gil’s fingerprint and Lee’s blood. Okay. Wow. I can’t believe it. No, I know, I know, but let me get more specific.

They found Gil’s fingerprint in Lee’s blood on the book that belonged to Gil. Do you realize what that means? Yeah, it means that Gil is likely Lee’s murderer and not his. Gabby, not my wife.


I was just asking Holly if she would help me with my Spanish. Except I told him it’s like my worst subject. I suck at languages. Oh, well, I’m pretty good at them, actually. So, I could even tutor you, if you want. Hablo muy bien espanol. Yeah, yeah, okay, yeah, sure, thank you. We can meet after school today, if you’re free.

Today? I’m sorry, I can’t, I promised that I would help my grandpa back at the pub, but I really appreciate the offer. How’s your nose doing, by the way? Not broken, thank God, just a little sore. I’m sorry, again. It’s okay, hey, it was an accident, and Anyway, I’m sure it’ll all be cleared up by prom, which I am so looking forward to.

And I’m really glad you’ll be taking me, Tate. It’s gonna be so dope. Yeah, definitely.

So, all this money, you’re just gonna spend it? You’re not interested in opening up, like, a trust fund for future heirs, or Actually, I’m not even sure I’m gonna have kids. Really, I’ve never even considered myself, like, the father type. More the private jet, yacht type. Uh huh. But what about carrying on Victor’s legacy and his name?

I honestly don’t want to put that pressure on myself. Philip is still out there and plenty other Kyriakuses. Or Kyriaksai, right?

Do you know what that is? Oh, baby. This is my new drone. Your drone? What are you going to do with a drone? What do you mean? What am I not going to do with my new drone? Aerial photography? Drone racing? The possibilities are endless. Okay, yeah, but you know, I don’t think you can really fit that much more No, none of this stuff is staying here.

It’s coming with me when I move to the mansion.

Alrighty. Tell me all about your trip. It was mostly business. Work, like I said. Except for my little stop at the perfumery, of course. Yeah. I know you, I know you get to Chicago quite often. Um, I hope that you enjoy the town. You know, that you don’t just stay. Hold up in your hotel room for room service? I got out once or twice, but You know, the funny thing is, the last time I was in Chicago, I was with Rachel on a school trip.

And I have to say, it sounds nuts, but I think I prefer dining in a cafeteria with a hundred fourth graders than in some swanky restaurant with a boring business associate. Even, even, even devouring a deep dish pizza in my room. I know how much you love her. I do. I really do. It’s amazing how much that little girl can change in a week.

It is. She’s so smart. Precociously smart, as you know. Yes, I know she is precocious. And I adore her. And I wish you had more time with her. I mean, I wish, I wish you had shared custody. Yeah, me too. It’s driving me a little crazy that Alex is getting to spend all this time with, with Rachel. You know, I, I don’t, I don’t think that Alex and Kristen are serious.

I didn’t, I didn’t, I didn’t think they were either, but I’m beginning to wonder because unless it’s a pure act, they’re really demonstrative with each other. It’s, yeah. Well, there’s a bad visual. I’m sorry. Wipe that out. Tell me. What did Carissa think about it? She doesn’t like it at all. You know what? I don’t need her.

Why in the hell would Gil want to kill Lee? I mean, they didn’t even know each other, did they? Well, not that Ava was aware of. Lee wasn’t part of the drug ring. No, I, no, I don’t, no, I don’t know. I mean, but Gil definitely was. And just, just follow my lead on this. Alright. Gil showed up at the apartment not long after Lee died and attacked Ava.

Right, and that’s when Ava shot him to death. Right, yes, yes. But what if that wasn’t the first time that Gil wanted to get his hands around her? What if he was waiting for Ava the first time? And Lee just happened to show up and Found gill and then gill who wants to keep things clean Killed me. All right.

So gill was actually looking for ava and Ever really intended to kill Lee? Yeah, exactly. Lee just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Wow.

Shoot, I gotta get to chem class and it’s way on the other side of school. Damn, that sucks. Yeah, I’m kidding. Super long walk. All uphill. I’m off. Okay. See ya, Sophia. Later? Yeah, definitely. For Spanish tutoring, right? Right. Later. Muy bien. No puedo esperar. Ah, whatever that means. It means, I can’t wait. See ya.

My God, I feel terrible that I told her that would be her date to prom. Why? You know she’s like super thrilled to be going with you. Yeah, but I’m not thrilled to be going with her. She’s cool, but I don’t know. I just am kind of dreading it. Pretending I’m into her or whatever. I just, I don’t want her to get the wrong idea.

Well, If she does, she does. And you have to be honest with her. Besides, it’s not like she gave you much of a choice. You know, when you hit her face with that ball. Thank you. Yes, that’s true. And unless we come clean with her about us, she’s gonna be really hurt that I’m not interested in her. But you know, we already talked about it.

It’s not the smartest move.

Tate? Yeah? I have to admit, I’m actually glad you’re going to the prom with Sofia. What? What are you talking about? Why would you be glad? Because this isn’t fair. What are, what are you saying? What isn’t fair? I mean, us sneaking around just so we can have five minutes alone together? I mean, you should be able to hang out with a girl with, with no restrictions or anything.

I’m sorry, Holly, I really, I don’t, I don’t understand what you’re saying here. What I’m saying is, Sophia is a really great person. So So I don’t know, maybe you should actually give her a chance. That is crazy. No, no, I, I don’t want to give her a chance. I want to be with you. And I want to be with you too, but I don’t, Tate, it’s kind of starting to feel like maybe this just isn’t meant to be, you know?

Brady, do you think that Alec is a bad influence on Rachel? Actually, I do. Yeah, I think, I think he’s shallow. I think he’s a womanizer. I think he, I think he thinks he’s God’s gift and just acts like it. I have to disagree. I’ve spent a little bit of time with him. I don’t find him shallow. Well, in any case, I don’t want any guy hanging around my daughter that isn’t me.

And if he starts spending more time with Rachel than I’m allowed to, That’s not gonna sit well with me. That’s gonna make my head explode. Okay, so as it stands now, Gil is most likely Lee’s killer. But how the hell do we prove that? It’s not like Gil and Lee are among the living. Reasonable doubt. I mean, that’s all we need.

Somebody’s been watching her Law Order, huh? I am a rapid fan. I’m going and speaking at Law Order. Ahem. What’s now? Well, we need a list. A list of everyone who worked here when Gil did. Starting with when Lee Shin was killed. Don’t make me get a warrant. Okay, if this has anything to do with the blood on the black book, you can have whatever you want.

How’d you know about that? You know, I remind you, I was the one who found it. I turned it into the police, so Harris filled me in. Commissioner, this is What we want, right? My wife free, your sister free, you and I, we’re finally on the same side here. So yeah, whatever you need, I’m willing to help in any way I can.

Okay, then. Let’s start with the personnel records. In the office. This way. You’re moving out? Hell yeah, I am. As soon as the Hortons move back home. You know, it’s huge as the mansion is, and it’s half mine, but, you know, east wing, west wing, ten bedrooms, it’s a little bit crowded for me. You know, between Doug and Julie being there, and Chad and the kids, I mean, it’s gonna be bad enough that I have to deal with Maggie and her new husband.

Aww, baby. Are you gonna miss me? Teresa, if you were worried about finding another place to live, especially now with the whole job situation, do not think about it for another second. You stay here as long as you want, I’ll continue to pay the rent. It’s pocket change. Oh my god, Alex, you don’t get it, do you?

What don’t I get? Teresa, what are you talking about? I’m I’m talking about me living alone in this apartment while you move into the East Wing, West Wing, 10 bedroom mansion. I don’t, I don’t want to live here without you, Alex. Oh. Oh, okay. Um. But seriously, that surprises you? Uh, yeah, it does. Sort of. Theresa, I thought you would, you know, would enjoy having more room to yourself.

I mean, we don’t see each other as it is, very much. You can have Tate over whenever you want. He’s got his own bedroom, for God’s sake. I thought you’d be happy about it. You thought wrong. No, that, that doesn’t make me happy.

Alex, I like being with you. I like living with you. I’m happy. Together. With you. Like, really together. Okay, Theresa, now I’m genuinely confused. I know, I know. I was giving you so many mixed signals and, and, I, I made you think that I wanted to just keep this relationship platonic. And now you’re saying that’s not what you really want?

No. It’s not ever what I wanted. Brady, I

think you should have an honest conversation with Alex about your concerns. Marlena, I did. I did. He assured me in no uncertain terms that he does not want to be a father figure to Rachel in any way. And I wasn’t surprised because the guy doesn’t have one parental bone in his body. So I believe him.

You’re sounding a little threatened to me. As if you think that the more time he spends around Rachel, it will interfere with the time you have with her. Exactly, yeah. Okay, alright. I’m gonna, uh, I’m gonna chill about this whole subject, alright? Because you’ve always told me, don’t borrow trouble. That’s my mantra.

I know, and I’m going to abide by it. It’s not like Rachel has said much about Alex. She hasn’t spoken of him. Which leads me to believe that they haven’t been spending a lot of time together. But the minute they do, the minute she says, Daddy, oh, Alex took me to this, this, this, this outing or this excursion.

I’m, I shudder at the fact of hearing that. Or, or he chaperoned my school function. I’m, I’m, you know, I’m sorry. I just, I don’t, I don’t like it. But I’m going to back burner this whole issue. I think that’s a very good idea. Me too. I’m glad you agree. So, what did I miss while I was away? Oh, Tate got his tux for the prom.

Oh, I remember seeing him all duded up. Oh, so am I. And I’m also very happy about the fact that he is moving on from Holly. Yeah. Yeah, I guess he’s going to the prom with Holly. Somebody named Sophia. Yeah, yeah, he, he told me. I don’t know much about her. But he said that she’s smart and, what did he say, fun.

Smart, fun. That’s good. Yeah. And, and I, I think he’s having a hard time being away from Holly, but I’m glad to see that he’s trying to move on. Me too. Especially considering, uh, apparently Holly and Nicole had a bad relationship. Big old fight outside of the bistro because Nicole isn’t allowing Holly to go to the prom.

Teresa told me about it. Apparently Holly was screaming at the top of her lungs or something. Well, I’m sorry to hear that, but I do understand that Nicole would be reluctant to have her go, especially after what happened on New Year’s Eve. And we all know about the peer pressure about going to prom and You know, getting wasted and et cetera, and et cetera.

Yeah. Well, it is, it’s an all night event and there is the, um, yeah, the window of time for the et cetera. Yeah. Et cetera stuff. It, it, it reminds me when I was asked to, to chaperone the last blast dance at Victor’s request, and I remember leaving that night thinking. I’m never having kids. I’m not dealing with this.

Well, you broke that little promise to yourself. Yeah. And I’m so glad you did. I’m glad I did too because I, I love those kids. Reminds me, I have a favor to ask of you. Anything. I want to set up a trust, uh, for Rachel and Tate. And I was hoping that you would, um, sign the documents as a witness.

Of course. Thank you.

Wow. This guarantees I won’t be very well provided for. Well, Maggie was generous enough to share some of the wealth from Victor’s will to the relatives that were seemingly cut out of it. This will take very good care. Okay. I’m Rachel and Tate’s future. I have everything I need. And now so do they. And my future grandkids.

They will be set for life.

So, Rafe and Jada are still searching, I take it? They are. Well, I hope they don’t find anything else to pin on you. They won’t. I run a clean business. Now Now, well, I guess it’s better late than never. And look, now finally you and I will hopefully get our fresh start. Right.

So? So. So we reviewed the files. Turns out most people don’t work here anymore. Hope we’ll track them down. Somebody’s bound to remember something. How long will that take? Well, I don’t know. This case is my top priority, considering it could lead to freedom for my sister. Your wife? Yeah, I mean, that’s what we want, right?

My wife, your sister, free. So whatever you need, whatever I can do, I’m all in.

Holly, I don’t, I don’t get this here. Are you saying that you want us to break up? No, it’s not that I want to. We were just Maybe it’s for the best. For the best? No, not, no, this is not for the best. In fact, it’s like the worst thing that I can think of. It’s the last thing that I want. Don’t make this harder than it has to be.

Holly. I don’t, I just don’t understand why all of a sudden you’re giving up on us. I don’t want to be with anybody else, but you and I have all these feelings for you, feelings that I. I’ve never had for anybody, I swear. Holly, I

Wait a minute. So you never wanted a breakup in the first place? No. Never. I never wanted that.

Look, Alex. You have to understand, I was really hurt and I was really embarrassed when I thought that you were going to propose to me and you didn’t. And then I overreacted and I tried to just act like I didn’t want to have anything to do with you by rejecting you. I remember it clearly. You didn’t answer my calls for days.

I know. I was really stupid and I, I regret it. Theresa, why did you reject me? Why did you push me away instead of just talking it out? I was just trying to play hard to get. You know, I just, I really wanted you to just miss me like crazy. I was hoping that maybe you’d see the errors in your ways and then you’d beg me to come back to you, but that, that didn’t happen, obviously.

And um, I just played a really risky game and it just totally backfired in my face. So you’re saying that you pushed me away when you were trying to do the opposite? Exactly.

But now I know that that was a really big mistake. And I’m not going to play any more games. I promise. Just please tell me it’s not too late.

I wonder when Maggie made the decision to share Victor’s fortune so generously. I think she decided as soon as Victor’s will went to probate. So Justin explained it to me. Why do you ask? Just curious. Hmm. You know what I’m curious about? How Constantine is going to feel about Maggie distributing all this wealth around.

Then why would you say that? Come on. You don’t think this guy is Just positioning himself to marry Maggie because he wants a big old payday. I do. I just hope that Maggie is smarter than that. She’s always been smart. She’s not easily manipulated, but I’ll tell you what, I don’t like this guy. I don’t know, maybe it’s just me.

No. I don’t like this guy either. Well, the nightmare isn’t over yet. But we’re closer than ever to finding the truth and freeing Gabby. Thank God. So what do we do next? Well, so far what we have is circumstantial, not conclusive. But that’s okay. We just need to get Li Xin’s murder case reopened and, you know, cast doubt on the conviction.

Burden of proof lies on the prosecution. See? I told you. I’m optimistic that this will be enough.

Holly, listen to me. I want you to stop worrying about what is best for me because this is what’s best for me. Okay? Being with you. Being with you is what’s best for me, too. I just hate how complicated it’s gotten. And that’s all my fault. No, don’t talk like that. I don’t care that it’s gotten complicated as long as I have you I swear I can handle anything

Leaves the class I’ve gotta go I’ll finish this later. Okay. Yes

Maybe there is a way.

Do you have anything to say?

I mean, I’m just pouring my heart out and you’re standing there staring at me. I just, I need to know that you still want me. I want to know that you still miss being with me.

Theresa, I’m just I’m kind of thrown by what you just said. To be honest, I’m just feeling kind of confused by the whole thing. It looks like

I’m going back to the office. Is everything okay? Oh, sure. It’s just that Alex has decided to take another day off again. So when you’re filthy rich, you get to just phone it in and you rely on guys like me to do all the hard work. Okay. You do what you need to do. And thank you for the perfume. And for the talk.

Thank you.

Happy Mother’s Day.

John, I need to talk to you. About Maggie. I cannot wait to tell Gabby about this. It will really lift her spirits. Okay, listen, I know that Statesville has been rough on Gabby, but I think that we should hold off on saying anything to her. Um, do we know more? I thought you said you were optimistic. Well, I am.

But we still have to convince the D. A. to reopen the case. Oh, right. The esteemable D. A. DiMera, who hates Gabby with a passion. Not to hell with his feelings. He has no choice but to follow the evidence and the law. Let’s hope he sees it that way. Well,

thanks again for meeting me here, Ava. Yeah, it’s a good thing that, uh, Wendy and Fred left me their key while they’re in Hong Kong. But listen, I really do need to get back to the pub soon because I can’t let Roman down. You know, I’ve been kinda living on a high wire without a net since I quit the bistro.

Oh, you quit? I wasn’t aware of that. Yeah, uh, it’s for the best. Right. Well, either way, this won’t take long. Okay, good. I assume that Harris has got you up to speed on the lab analysis of Clyde’s black book? Yeah, he briefed me on that, told me that the bloody fingerprint was Gil’s, and The actual blood was these.

Right. So, as of now, the working assumption is that Gil stabbed Lee. The question is why. And the other question is Can you help us prove it?

Hey there, Thomas. Hi, Eric. How’s it going, buddy? Good. My school is testing on take your kid to work day, so we’re doing it today instead. Alright, so does that mean you’re going to be my boss? No. I don’t want to be the boss. I want to be a reporter, just like my mom.

Hey. Are you surprised to see me? Sorry, I thought you’d still be at the Spectator. I’m going back. I just took a break to hopefully see Holly after school. I’m hoping to mend some fences. Is she still around?
