THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

Oh, this is, this is so, this is beautiful, baby, what’s going on?

Did I miss a date?

Uh, it has been non stop. I’m telling you, between patients and administrative work, and problems with our internet, so our telemedicine appointments are all messed up, and uh, I’m just glad that I was able to get away. Oh, sweetness, I’ll take any time I can get with you. I’m really sorry all the staff shortages have been wearing you down so much.

Yeah, it’s been tough, but I can handle it. Yeah. Yeah. I’ll just be happy when new docs show up, you know? Speaking of which, have you talked to Chip? I have. He’s, he’s doing great. So is Wendy. That’s awesome. And how are you doing? I’m happy he’s happy. I’m still missing him a lot though. Yeah, me too. What about you and John?

How are things going with you guys? Fine. You know, I really don’t think these one syllable answers are gonna work for me today, okay? Sorry, baby, that’s all I got right now. Okay. What about, how are things going with Constantine? Well, still don’t trust him, never have, never will. Well, he hasn’t given you any reason to.

Looks like a duck and quacks like a duck. I really can’t believe that Maggie is actually going to marry that man. Listen, you don’t have to worry about Maggie. She’ll be just fine. You sound awfully sure of yourself. What’s going on? Hey, Jada. Hey, guys. Hi. Come on. Grab a chair. Join us.

Hey Doc, what’s going on? You sounded kind of worried on the phone. I am. Alright, talk to me. I got an update from Brady. Looks like Maggie is redistributing Victor’s wealth just to make sure that all of his dependents get their inheritance. Oh, Maggie, Maggie, Maggie. I’m sure Constantine is losing his mind.

I have no doubt. Alright, so what are your concerns? Well, Constantine is a very dangerous man. I’m afraid that Maggie has put herself in a rather dangerous place. Wow,

huh? That’s a lot of beautiful things to choose from. Well, the very easy thing to remember about me is, I like all things sparkly. Perhaps an engagement ring for the happy couple.

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

An engagement ring? Yeah, could have sworn I heard that too. Why not? Two lovely people who obviously enjoy each other’s company, and I would say make a fantastically enjoyable looking couple. Would you not agree? We could even make it a double wedding. Oh, I’m sure that Alex and Teresa have their own plans, whatever they may be.

I apologize to you both. Constantine tends to get carried away. Yeah, seems that way. Speaking of plans, aren’t you supposed to be at the office, Alex? I mean, the prep meeting? Yes, for the McGill acquisition. With all due respect, Maggie, my calendar is none of your concern, but since you asked, my VP has it covered.

Efficient leaders know how to delegate. Well, strong leaders need to be present. Titan’s a well oiled machine, thanks in large part to my tenure. Okay, well, when you’re done patting yourself on the back, perhaps one of us should get to work. I guess that’s gonna be me. I’ll text you on my way home. Thanks, Mike.

Look, nobody wants to upset Constantine, but I’m afraid that Maggie moving Victor’s money around could be kicking the hornet’s nest. Yeah, yeah, she’s, um, she’s rattling his cage a little bit here, but look, Doc. The Kiriakis estate? Massive. Millions and millions and millions of dollars are gonna be left over even after Maggie does her generous gifting.

I certainly think that’s gonna make Cosetteen behave himself for a while. I hope you’re right. Yeah. Me too. But just to cover all of our bases. Why don’t we make sure Maggie doesn’t have anything else she needs to tell us, okay?

Come on, now. Take a seat. Catch us up. Not even for just a couple of minutes. Come on. Okay, fine. I will do that. So, I bet it’s nice to live in an actual house, isn’t it? Oh, yes, it is. I mean, it is beautiful. It’s definitely an improvement from the small room overlooking a parking lot. Yeah. I bet, huh? Yeah, and Rafe is a great guy.

I actually look forward to coming home. I can’t tell you how nice that is. I can imagine. Wow. That’s great. Um, well, Stephanie told us that, um, Everett signed the divorce paper. Ah, he did. And I’m pretty sure your daughter had something to do with making that happen. Well, that wouldn’t surprise me. Yeah. I am.

I am. I mean, it is like a dark cloud has been lifted. The only thing is, uh What? Well, I know that Stephanie is currently, you know, working on her relationship with Everett and trying to make it work. I just, I just hope that he doesn’t break her heart. You know, like he did mine.

Games. You don’t gotta ask me twice. In fact, I, uh, I have a couple of games we could play. And? Mm hmm. Um, they would require a change of venue, however. Like the bedroom? Soon. Well, the timing’s right. Timing? Victoria’s just about to wake up. Oh my god, yes, you’re right. I can’t believe I forgot. The afternoon bottle is upon us.

Okay, I’ll go make it. Not yet. But I thought you just We have games to play soon. Okay, what games? Hearts? Hearts the card game. Yeah, that’s exactly what I mean.

Wow! Gosh, I haven’t played this since I was a little girl. I don’t think I even remember the rules. Oh, I wouldn’t worry about that. It’ll all come back to you, it’s just like falling off a bike. Come on, let’s get started. What’s this? This is the Queen of Hearts. Because you’re my queen, and you’ve captured my heart.

I’d like to think so. And the note? Read it. Read it.

You’ve captured my heart. Now check out the art. The art. In here? Baby, what’s going on? Isn’t it obvious? You’re on a scavenger hunt. And I’m going to have so much fun watching you try and figure it all out. Xander. You’re doing great. You’re totally on the road to finding the treasure. Treasure? What treasure?

You want to give away the best part? Yeah, maybe a head. No, you’re on your own, kiddo. Huh. It’s not jewels, is it? Precious stones. Of the family variety. Well, you’re a dirty girl, aren’t you? Yeah. Well, maybe I should give you a pat down. Seducing me isn’t gonna help. But what if I beg? It won’t matter. You’re not getting any of this until you find what I’ve hidden.

Look, if I’m overstepping, just No, no, no, you’re not. Listen, we appreciate your concern, really, but be assured That if Everett gets out of line or hurts Stephanie, that Papa Bear over here is definitely gonna have a lot to say about it. Yeah, that’s right. Yeah. And if he ever does anything that you don’t like, you come to Papa Bear too.

Okay? Well, I think he will be keeping his distance from me. But, Thank you for being so caring. Well, you know how much your dad meant to me. He was a dear friend. I think he’d be very upset with me if I didn’t look out for his baby girl. Thank you. You know, you guys are like family to me. I just wish we saw you more.

And I wish I saw you guys too. You know, I’m so sorry I keep dropping the ball on making plans. It’s just that lately, I feel like I am just being pulled in a million different directions. I So how’s the search for Clyde Weston going?

Now, Constantine, what are you still doing here? Okay, Alex, let’s be civil. Oh. What? No, no, it is an excellent question. I have no reason to linger. I shall be on my way. All right. You know what, Constantine, wait a second. There’s one thing I did want to discuss with you. Please, go ahead. So, I recently just purchased a racehorse.

There’s a good chance that it’s gonna get delivered before I get back to the mansion and officially move in. Could you just let the stable master know? Has Maggie been made aware of your relocation plans? Well, I would assume that she knows I’m moving back in given that half of everything was left to me now.

Put on to a more practical note, I’m thinking about taking over the East Wing. That’s not where your room is, is it? I mean, I’d hate to have you relocate, though I do have plans of further discussing your continued occupancy at the Kiriakos Mansion with Maggie as soon as I see her again. If your idea is for me to vacate I’m sure he would meet with, uh, strenuous objections from my soon to be wife.

Yeah, well, I’m just saying you probably shouldn’t get too comfortable there, Constantine. Let’s just leave it at that. Okay, okay, fellas. Let’s just take a step back. Maybe take some deep breaths. Yeah, because, you know, this conversation is really pointless without Maggie being here. It is her house, after all.

Well, not quite. It’s actually our house. As is half of the estate and half of Victor’s fortune. Yeah.

And on that note, any idea when the Horton’s are moving out? Here you go. Oh, thank you very much. Thanks for coming over so quickly. Well, it’s not a problem. Um, I was on my way to work. However, uh, I can only stay a little while. Yeah. So what’s going on? Mostly we wanted to thank you. For what? Brady told us that you have redistributed Victor’s estate.

And that will allow him to set up a trust for Rachel and Tate. Just like Xander did for Victoria. Well, um, it’s not my generosity, it’s just, it was me carrying out what I know would be Victor’s wishes. He wanted to make sure his children and his grandchildren were cared for. And I had a I had already decided to share my wealth before I knew what Constantine was up to.

Um, Did I do something wrong? I mean, if this is a problem. No, no, no, no. No, we just wanted to circle back here and talk about next steps. With Constantine. We need to get him to commit a crime. Something that we can actually collar him on. Right. Mm hmm. I was gonna call you later, actually, but you beat me to the punch.

You see, um, it came to me earlier today. It came to you? An idea. In my not so humble opinion, a brilliant idea. Yes. I know exactly how to bring Konstantin down for good.

Okay, so let’s, uh, let’s hear this brilliant plan of yours. Well, it’s all about Alex. Ever since, uh, Victor’s will has been settled, Alex, he’s been hyper focused on spending money. Extravagantly, to put it mildly. Recklessly. Neglecting his role in the stewardship of Titan. Almost completely. Now normally, I wouldn’t let this behavior slide.

But it occurred to me that it might provide us with the perfect opportunity. To get rid of Constantine permanently. All right, go on. Well, it seems like Alex is uninterested in minding the store. So the company money could be so easily moved under the radar. With a little finesse and a little technical know how, we could make it look like Well, like my darling fiancé has been embezzling from Titan for months.

It wouldn’t be difficult to transfer funds to a personal account. One that I had opened on his behalf. So if we did it right, and we did it cleverly So the idea is to expose Constantine for the low life that he really is. Mm hmm. Leave that to me. To answer your question, the Horton House renovation is almost complete.

Right. I’m sure you’re breathing a huge sigh of relief, right? Now that, you know, the mansion’s probably getting a little bit crowded, no? I’ve actually enjoyed having the cordons around. Hopefully I will enjoy being with you just as much. Yeah, well, I wouldn’t count on that. Anyway, I’m going to finish shopping for this lovely lady.

Oh, you stay right here. I’ll be right back. Big surprise. Ooh. Engagement

ring? Honestly, you actually said that out loud? Reza, calm down. Alex didn’t know I knew what the first ring, huh? All he heard was an old man waxing romantic. Well, quit your waxing, will you? He gets all jittery when you bring up the whole proposal thing. Haven’t you been working on that, huh? If not, what the hell have you been doing?

Plenty. I’ve got myself back in his bed, haven’t I? Now I just need to get myself back into the mansion. Huh. As far as tracking down Weston and his accomplice, we recently came into possession of a new piece of evidence. What’s that? Well, we got our hands on Weston’s black book detailing every part of his drug operation.

Wow. That is big news. Yeah, Stefan DiMera brought it in. He found it hidden at the bistro. But the only problem is it’s written in a code and we are so far from figuring that out. Well, that’s something John and I could definitely help out with. Yeah, you could ticket the ISA, right? Absolutely. And if anyone can correct that code, it’s them.

Okay, game on! I’m rooting for you, Sarah. You said art.

Well, it can’t be any of these, because you hung them. It’s not on the walls. Keep trying. You think I already gave up? Oh, sounds like little Miss Sunshine just woke up. I didn’t hear anything. Oh, you should, uh, pop these in some water. I’ll go get our little angel. But baby, this, this isn’t for flowers. This is just Art.

Look inside.

Seems like someone is more interested in Mr. Turtle than eating, although she did mention that I should ask you that question again. Properly.

Sarah Horton. I love you with all my heart. You’ve made my life better in so many ways. In fact, the only thing that could improve what we have now is knowing that I get to spend the rest of my life with you. So, will

you marry me?

Oh, Sandra, I’m I’m so sorry, I can’t accept this.

I appreciate the offer, Steve. But Harris has already taken the paperwork to the Naval Intel for analysis. But, I’m gonna talk to Rafe. And the more eyes we can get on this, the better. Well, we all want the same thing. Weston behind bars again. Right. And this little book is going to help us solve a few cases.

Something else to do with Weston? No, the murder of Lee Shin. I, I thought that Gabby was in prison for that. Well, Gabby always said that she was innocent, and Rafe is very sure of that. Are you saying Weston was involved in that? I can’t say anything right now, but this book, it can lead to a lot of closure for all of us.

Okay. Wow. Well, Maggie, um. On paper, it sounds like a hell of a plan. I thought you would like it. The more I flesh it out, the more I’m convinced that it’ll work. Hmm. Now we just need to plant the seed. Oh, I suspect that Constantine will be salivating over the favor that I’m about to ask him. And, uh, I know who to call.

If I get into any trouble. So, wish me luck. I think you’re doing just fine so far. Bye bye. Bye. Hmm. Well, I wasn’t quite sure, but Let me get into thinking Maggie might be able to pull this off. I have no doubt. I think that Constantine is messing with a raw redhead. That’s a fact. And soon he will be out of our life.

Out of all of our lives. Forgot it.

You talk a good game, Teresa, but I need to see some action, and soon. Time is The essence, yeah, I know, I know. You just make sure that you hold up your end of the bargain, okay? Yes. Okay. Well, as much as I have enjoyed being with this lovely lady, now that you’ve returned, I have some errands to attend to.

Well, don’t let us hold you up. I shall be on my way. All right.

God, is he unsufferable. Well, he’s marrying Maggie, so get used to it. I can’t believe she’s hanging out with that loser, much less marrying the guy. I don’t know. I mean, I guess that’s just what happens when you’re lonely and needy. I don’t know. Anyway, I’m gonna see what I got you. Um, yes.

Wow. Alex, this is, this is amazing. I thought you were gonna just get me like a little bobble or something. Well, do you like it? It’s spectacular. My God, first the watch and now this? I wish that there was something that I could do for you. I’ve got a few ideas. Really? Oh.

Okay.

You know, getting this, uh, this Constantine issue under control here makes me feel like you’re not. Might be a light at the end of the tunnel. I agree. Just getting Constantine out of Maggie’s life. Doing that, you must feel good. Damn right.

You know, I’m the reason he’s here in Salem. And the way he has been lying to Maggie. And taking advantage of her generosity and most likely planning to kill her. All of that is on me. Just another cross to blur.

So Weston’s book is the key. If he knows you have it, he’ll come out of hiding. That’s the expectation, yeah. Just gotta get word to him that it’s been found. Right. So you’ll let me know if anything else happens with the case, you’ll keep me in the loop? As much as I can. I mean, it’s personal to us, to our family.

Yes, I know that. That monster killed Abigail. He almost killed Tripp and Wendy. He’s hurt so many people we love. That bastard needs to be stopped once and for all.

I’m not sure I understand. Are you saying no? No, no, no. No, baby. Not to you. Just, the ring. Honey, I can’t wear that. What? Why not? It’s ethically sourced. If that’s what What your problem is? I mean, it’s a one of a kind design. And I, and I appreciate that. I really do. It’s just It’s too much. Oh, darling, don’t sweat the cost.

No, no. What was Maggie’s reallocation of Victor’s estate? I was able to not only set up a trust for our daughter Yes, but that’s where the money should be spent. And that’s why you’re listed as trustee, so you can manage Victoria’s Trust. I mean, that’s why I wanted to make things official. We are a family now.

I just wanted to make sure that you had the best ring money could buy. You, you deserve it. I don’t need the best ring. I don’t need the best anything. I already have the best. I have you.

I’m sorry. Last time. So

you’re saying yes? Is that by any chance a yes? What I’m saying is, you, Xander Cook, are the best. And I agree that, and I am gonna steal your words here, the only way that this could be any better would be knowing that we get to spend the rest of our lives together. And honey, I’m so sorry if I came off as a name grade.

I am so touched and I really do appreciate that you spent so much time shopping for such a beautiful ring. And oh my god, the way that you proposed was just so sweet. Does that mean that you will just keep the ring and not feel guilty about having it and wearing it, please? I will. And I’ll, I’ll try my hardest to get over the guilt.

Well, surely you’d feel a lot more guilty if you made me take it back. I mean, after all the hours I spent at the jewelry store, making that poor salesperson show me hundreds and hundreds of rings, until finally I saw this one and thought, Yeah, that’s the one for my Sarah.

If you’re gonna put it like that. Can we have a redo? Like, will you get back down on your knee and show me the ring, and then say all the beautiful corny things that you said that made my heart melt, just like the whole nine yards. Yeah, we can totally replay all of that. Yeah. And I promise that I will be gracious, and I will be grateful, and I won’t have any objections or complaint.

You’ll see. Okay. Okay. Here we go. Xander proposes to Sarah, take two. And action. And action.

My precious Sarah. I love you with just my whole heart and soul.

Mother of our daughter, best friend, staunchest supporter. Well, staunchest supporter when I’m being a decent human being. Which is what I know I’ll be from this moment on. Because having you in my life has given me so much to aspire to. I want to be the man you deserve. And the father, Vittoria deserves.

That’s my goal. My other goal is to make you happy, and feel safe and secure in my love. And to put a smile on your face at least, um, a hundred or so times a day, and a few times at night as well. You’re everything to me, Sarah. And I just I, I, oh I can’t believe I haven’t gone to the proposal party. No, no, no, there’s no rush.

Okay, well I am ready.

Sarah Horton, love of my life, will

you marry me?

Sander Cook, love of my life. I will definitely marry you and I cannot wait to be your wife. Well, in that case, um, Please allow me. It looks like we’re engaged now. Fianc√©. No question about it. Fianc√©.

Okay, let’s make this Sunday dinner happen, okay? We want to have you and Rafe over. That sounds so wonderful. I’m gonna check my calendar and I will text you. Great. Okay. Hope it’s soon. It will be. Okay, honey, take care. Aw, take care, guys. Thank you. Yeah. Right. What? I can see those wheels turning. Yeah, baby, those wheels are turning.

That new piece of evidence is big news. How could any of us rest easy? Until Clyde Weston is back in his cage. Well, we can’t. So maybe that’ll give you something else to focus on, besides Constantine. Sweetness, you know that I can work on more than one thing at a time. So Constantine is still on the docket.

That doesn’t change. But you still haven’t told me what’s going on. Why? Sweetness, I promise you, when the time is right, I’ll tell you everything. I just hope it all works out. It has to. There’s no other option.

Insolent swine! You’ll get yours soon enough, Alex. You will. Who are you talking to? Oh! Myself. Old habit. Well, we all do it. I thought you were going to work. I did. I went to work. And I was there, I had something of an epiphany. And it brought me back to you. Oh, I see. Hmm. Tell me about your epiphany, Maggie.

Well, I hate to impose, but I do have a favor. Um, and, and, and you’re the only one who I think could handle it. Anything, my dear, anything. Well, um, as you know, um, I intend to create a charitable trust in Victor’s honor. Right. And since you knew him for most of your life, you more than anyone else knew what was in his heart.

Right. So, I would like to put you in charge of distributing the funds to the causes that meant the most to Victor. That is if you’re willing. It would be my honor to do this for you and Victor. Oh, oh Maggie, dear Maggie, thank you for entrusting me with such a, a noble venture.

Alright, listen to me.

I’m gonna say this one more time. And hopefully then you will come to believe it. None of what you did back then was about you. That wasn’t John Black. But what, what you’re doing now, the way that you’re helping Maggie, is an example of your, your kindness and your strength. And if that’s not an example of the quality of your character, I don’t know what is.

That’s all I want to be, Doc. Just a force for good.

And with you by my side. I know for a fact that anything is possible.

You know what? I think I’m kind of crazy about you, Alex K. Um,

Actually, I’m waiting for you to say something back, like, Oh, I don’t know, I’m so crazy about you too, Teresa. Or, you are so insanely beautiful and irresistible, Teresa. You are irresistible, but I’m a fan of, you know, the opinion that actions speak louder than words. And I think, with all the action just now, I should have told you something.

Mm hmm. Mm hmm. Yeah. Yeah. Okay.

I’m gonna go hop in the shower. And then, um, should we order in? Sure. Why not? Okay. Alex K. Mm.

Hey, Kristen.

I miss you, too. Hopefully tomorrow. Yeah. I can’t wait.
