Straight to voicemail again.

Everett, it’s Stephanie and I’m starting to worry. Where are you?

So you know why Everett was acting so strangely? Why he attacked Eric completely unprovoked? Look, you both understand that I can’t give you any information based on, on prior psychiatric sessions that I’ve had with him. I can only give you insights that I’ve gained from, from right here during the interview in this room because I am no longer his psychiatrist.

Understood. And since I am not his psychiatrist, I, I’m not privy to his latest thoughts or feelings. Do you have any possible diagnosis? Yes. It would only be possibilities. But they’d be based on what the four of us saw right here in this room. Well, I sure as hell know what I saw. And it was like he was two very different people.

Right. Bobby and Everett. Yeah. Bobby and Everett. And as you said, they’re very different people and they both are They both live inside his head.

Mmm. Mmm. Wow, this brownie is so good. I might have to get the recipe so I can add it to the menu on Sweet Bitch. Looks like someone is over their morning sickness. Yeah, it’s definitely subsiding. I can see that. In fact, I’m ravenous now. Yeah, I’ve noticed. But more than that, Johnny, I’m not just ravenous, but I’m excited.

About this little person that’s growing inside of me. Yeah, I’m excited too. So you know what? Screw it. Screw what? Fear and doubt and worry. I am deciding right here, right now, that I am done living in a perpetual state of dread over what being exposed to that radiation may or may not have done to our baby.

Okay. I, okay. So, I want to tell all of our friends and family that we’re expecting. And I want them to be just as excited about it as I am right now. I think it’s time that we shout it from the rooftops of Salem, the news of our pregnancy. So, what do you say?

I had cook prepare us a nice afternoon snack.

Darling, are you alright? Yes, um, Actually, I’m relieved. I just got a text from Holly saying how sorry she was for what she said to me. That’s so good, darling. But I knew she would come around eventually. Express regret over how much she hurt you. Bollocks. Yes. Rita, dammit, this could wait. I told you not to bother me today unless it was urgent.

That’s fine. Set it up for Monday morning. And don’t call here again without a damn good reason, alright? Hey, whoa, whoa, whoa. What? What? What? How you just snapped at Rita. There’s nothing new there. Really? I have never heard you speak to her like that. She has thick skin. She’ll be fine. Maybe so, but I’m sure she was thrown by it, just like I was.

AJ, I can tell something’s upsetting you. I’m fine, I promise. No, no, you’re not. What is going on? And what has got you so wound up?

Sloane, sweetheart. It’s obvious that Jude isn’t ours biologically. I know that you’re still mourning her loss of her baby and Stop. Stop. Please. Jude isn’t ours biologically or otherwise. Is this why Melinda was here? Is there something wrong with the adoption? No!

Sloan. Baby, don’t confuse. What is it?

That’s what I’m trying to tell you. What I did. You know what, you had a lot to drink last night. Let me get you some more, okay? He’s Nicole and EJ’s.

Nicole and EJ’s baby. He’s not dead. He’s very much alive. He’s right there. Jude is their son.

No, it’s not possible. It can’t be. It is. It’s true. I’ve been lying. I lied the whole time. Why? Because I didn’t want to lose you. Like sands through

the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.

You don’t want me to tell people I’m pregnant, do you? What? No! No, of course! I want to tell people eventually, I just You, you want to wait until we’re sure that the baby is, is okay, that the radiation didn’t cause any, any problems? Yeah. Yeah, I, Johnny, I get that. I’m concerned about that too, obviously. But, I mean, aren’t you sick of just obsessing over all the what ifs?

Our baby could be perfectly healthy, right? So, why not think about the positive outcome? You know, isn’t it better to focus on that instead of the alternative? Yeah. Yeah. I guess it is. Yes, it definitely is. So, should we, I don’t know, throw, throw a party at the mansion to announce that we’re expecting? Or, ooh, I know, you can make us a video and then we can put it on, um, social media and blast it all over.

Okay, babe, let’s just, let’s slow down. No, I don’t want to slow down. I want to enjoy everything. every moment of this pregnancy and we can’t do that until we stop treating it like some big dark secret. What? What are you thinking? I’m just, I’m thinking that’s not the only reason, okay? It’s not just the scare of the radiation exposure that I’m hesitant to tell people you’re pregnant.

Okay, well, what’s the other reason?

It wasn’t so long ago that my dad and Nicole lost their baby. Oh. Yeah, right. Well, maybe E. J. and Nicole finding out that they have a grandchild on the way will be I mean, I know it’s not Nicole’s grandchild biologically, but still, maybe it’ll be just the news that they need to help them finally start to heal.

Yeah. Yeah, maybe. Johnny, we’re gonna have to tell them sometime. I mean, it won’t be long before I start showing. Oh. Uh, yeah, I actually hadn’t even thought about that. Well, daddy, it is high time you start thinking about it because this little one is here to stay. So, uh, it is time that we start thinking about the future.


Okay, I’m waiting for an explanation as to why you bit Rita’s head off on the phone just now. And why are you acting all edgy and anxious? It’s not a big deal, really.

I suppose I was hoping Paulina might be calling to say that she had come to her senses that she was going to keep me on as DA. Well, she damn well should come to her senses about that. Well, she’s not going to. She was final in her decision. Well, it was a terrible decision. Hey, you know what? You did a really good job.

It’s gonna be her loss. Most assuredly will be. And once I have her recalled as mayor, she is going to rue the day she crossed the DiMera. Okay. You will have plenty of time to figure out how to exact your non violent revenge against that woman. But, um, honey, aren’t we supposed to be relaxing this afternoon?

Yes, yes, yes, I remember. Yes, yes, yes. Okay, so why don’t you come here and sit down and I will rub your neck. Ooh, yes, please. Okay. How’s that? That’s lovely. Lovely, lovely. You have a hot date? Huh? Hmm? Why do you keep checking your watch? Don’t be silly. I’ve already snagged the hottest catch in town. Then why are you so concerned about the time, especially since said hottest catch has her hands all over your body?

There’s no reason. Oh, wow. Best up da Mira. Otherwise I’m going to have to play my hardcore techniques. Oh. Yeah. So tell me, why do you keep checking your watch? And why are you so on edge? Okay, okay.

Let’s just say I’m expecting a delivery.

You took another woman’s child? Because you were afraid to lose me?

I was grieving at the miscarriage and then I was told I was infertile. Knowing how much it meant to you to be a father, I thought that if I, if I couldn’t give you a baby, I thought that you would leave me. I wanted to have a family with you so badly. Especially after losing my parents, my brother. And when you agreed that we could adopt, I, I was so happy.

I was, oh, I was relieved. It felt like, you know, we’d been given a second chance.

What I didn’t tell you was that that adoption, that second chance, it fell through, like, very last minute. What? The parents of the little boy that we were supposed to get, before the baby was even born, they decided last minute to pull out. What? Why? Because, because they did some research into my background and they found that they didn’t want a horrible person like me raising their child.

I was devastated. It was like there goes our second chance. You know how bad living a happy little life with our family together. And then. And then what? And then Dimitri von Leuschner showed up on my doorstep with the baby. Well, hold on a minute.

He and Leo Stark, they delivered Nicole’s baby. On the roadside. And Dimitri, he was supposed to, he was supposed to take the baby to the hospital. Right, but he couldn’t because he was swarming with cops. He couldn’t take him to the hospital because he was on the lam. So he brought him to me instead. And that’s when I saw him holding a precious little baby boy.

I, I decided to, to keep him.

I saw it as our last chance of being parents. Our last chance at happiness. It was my last chance to hold on to you. And, uh, and that’s when

I made the choice to keep Nicole’s baby and take him as ours.

Are you saying that I’m saying that I think that Everett has DID. Dissociative Identity Disorder. Have you heard of it? I am kind of familiar with it, yes. Abigail DeMera had it. Right. Right. It’s very rare and it’s often misdiagnosed. Usually it happens because of some early childhood trauma. I think that Everett may have lashed out at Eric because he was triggered by something that happened in his own childhood.

Right. Okay, and so that triggering event, um, I am to turn into Bobby. Hmm. Oh my God. If this is true, this would explain so much. Yeah, Stephanie posted his bail. We should call her. Water.

Jada, hi. Hey, Steph. Have you seen Everett? I mean, today, since he’s been out on bail? No, actually. And I’ve been calling him, trying to reach him, but he’s not picking up. Do you know where he is? I don’t. But listen, there’s some new information that’s come to light. Can you come down to the station? We need to discuss some things.

So what kind of delivery are you expecting? Oh, uh, nothing that you need to concern yourself with. Not now, anyway. Not now. Why are you being so cryptic about all of this? Hey. Oh, hi. Hi there. . Oh, Nicole. Dad, I haven’t, uh, had a chance to talk to you since you lost your DA job. I’m, I’m, I’m sorry. I, uh, I appreciate that, Johnny.

Yeah. Um, me, me too. And I would put in a good word for you, but, uh. My mom and I are not really on the best of terms. I suppose that even you think your mother is in the wrong, leaving isolation and, um, subjecting you and others to radiation. Yes, I do. Especially because

I’m pregnant.

Horrible nightmare. Just tell me it’s not true. Yeah, I wish that I could. What about, what about those DNA test results that prove that Nicole and EJ weren’t Jude’s parents? The um, the results were, they were tampered with. What?

By you. Eric,

Eric, believe me, my heart is broken. I know yours is too, probably more than mine. I wish I didn’t have to tell you any of this right now. Then why are you? Why are you coming clean with this now? So you need to make a decision, Sloan. Do you want to say goodbye to your freedom? Spend the rest of your life surrounded by barbed wire, fencing, and surly guards.

All for a pyrrhic victory. Where do you want to start, and you? Anywhere in the world. Have you ever been to Milan? I hear there are quite a lot of single billionaires roaming around there.

Please, please, I can’t, I can’t, I need just more time. I, you have only 24 hours and not a second more. I’m coming clean now because I, I had to, I, I had to. Why? Why? Why?

Because you were getting closer and closer to the truth. Every fire that I would put out, another fire would pop up. What are you talking about?

Leo knew the truth. Leo delivered the baby on the side of the road. That’s why he felt such a bond with him. And then Dimitri told Leo that he dropped the baby off with me. That’s when Leo was, he was gonna tell me at the salium, isn’t it, that night that

when the money all dried up. Yeah. Nicole and I, we found a bar drunk and that’s when he said he had news to share with Nicole to make her happy and make me sad. That’s why Nicole, Felt such a bond with him as well, she must have just sensed it. You shunned her. You, you accused her of kidnapping your child.

I wanted to keep her. When you knew all along that you was her child, that her baby was alive. You, you put, Nicole and EJ threw hell making them think that their child was dead. I did it because I love you! No! I did it because I love you! Don’t tell me you love me! Don’t tell me you love me or Jude! Because nobody would have ever done that to me.

You’re not even capable of love.

Wow. You know, I have to say, I Out of all my years as detective, I’ve never run across anyone with DID and I have to admit that I kind of thought it wasn’t real. Well, there are lots of myths about DID but it is an actual illness, right. Was right. Abigail suffered with it and uh, had a hard time, as did Chad.

Yeah. But she was successfully treated, right. She was. And I think that Everett can be as well. Yeah, but, uh, who the hell knows where he is right now? Only Stephanie hadn’t bailed him out. Yeah. I assume you’re talking about my having bailed out Everett? That’s what we were talking about. Well, why shouldn’t I have?

What’s going on? Oh my goodness, this is so exciting! Congratulations! Oh, wow! Isn’t this exciting, EJ? It is, yeah. Yeah! You knew, didn’t you? I did. And you didn’t tell me? Neither of you told me? Is Is it because you think I couldn’t handle it? Or Oh, no, no, no, Nicole. It isn’t that. Nicole, look, we weren’t telling anyone at first, really.

And I only told my father in confidence. Yeah, and as soon as we decided to spread the word, we wanted to make sure that you were the first to know. Oh. Oh. Oh, that’s, that’s very sweet. Oh, you two are going to be such great parents. Johnny, may I have a, uh, private moment with you? Just a little father son talk.

Yeah, sure. Excellent. Sure. Excuse us both, it might be a moment. Yeah, of course. How could you do this? How could you do this to E. G. and Nicole? How could you do this to me? How could you Believe me, please. I know it was terrible. I don’t want to hear that. I did it because I love you. Please believe that. Can I just say it?

No, I just, I love you. I did it for us. I wouldn’t do anything for her. Don’t touch me. I love you. I love you. Stop. Stop! I love you. No! Stop! You ready to

go, big guy? What are you doing?

Can’t you figure this out? I’m gonna take,

I’m gonna take Jude back to his real parents.


God, I don’t believe this. But if you look at all the mixed signals that Bobby was sending, it makes sense. And now I realize that everything I was so angry at him about, everything he did to hurt me, the lying, the cheating, walking out on me, he only did that because his other personality didn’t know the other one existed.

It was, it was because of his illness. And now the question is, what do we do to help him? First thing that has to happen is he has to admit that he needs help. But you, you discharged him from your care. Do you not realize that he No, no, I, I did not discharge him. I urged him to stay in treatment. So he lied to me.

Yes. He’s resistant to getting help. For good reason, he’s He’s frightened. He’s terribly frightened. And that is where you come in. You’re not thinking straight, Johnny. Don’t do this. Why would you make this decision when you know full well that it is a mistake, a catastrophic mistake, in fact? Honestly, it’s none of your business.

Oh, but it certainly was my business when I flew that specialist in from Switzerland, right? You only did so that you could control our decision. Not true, damn it. I was trying to be helpful. You want to be helpful? Then be helpful. Okay, look. Chanel is excited. And happy. About this baby, okay? She has chosen to be optimistic.

She has chosen to believe that this baby will be a blessing to us no matter what. Okay. And what about you? Have you chosen to believe that too? Yeah. Yeah, I have. Okay. Okay, and I’m trying to be optimistic. I’m trying to be happy and excited. Okay, trying. Really? Because you are having serious misgivings about this.

I know you are. Okay, okay. I’m not gonna lie to you. I’ll admit I’m a little worried. Okay, I don’t know if going through with this pregnancy is the right thing, but I also don’t feel that it’s my place to say so. What do you mean it’s not your place? You’re the child’s father. I understand that, but Chanel is carrying our child, okay?

She’s my wife, whom I love and respect. And I’m not just gonna overrule what she wants. Well, as I said, I think you’re making a terrible mistake. Well, you’re entitled to your opinion. To me, if it makes my wife happy, then it’s never a mistake.

Here, I want you to have this. Tales of the Cuddly Bunny? Yeah. I, I got it at my baby shower, and um, You know, I thought I gave all the gifts away, and I came across this, and I, I just couldn’t give it up. And, and maybe this is why. Well, I’m really grateful. This is our, our first baby gift. And, Nicole, I know that this must be really, really hard for you.

It is. I have to admit. But I think it’s because seeing how excited you are reminds me of how excited I was to have a baby and to raise another child. But I, I want you to know, honey, I’m so very happy for you. Thank you. Thank you so much. That’s so wonderful.

Oh, my sweet little baby boy. Stay away from him.

At least let me say goodbye to him. No, you don’t get to do that. And don’t say another word.

Oh, oh gosh, I’m, I’m so sorry. What? No, you, you have nothing to be sorry about. Yes, yes I do. I mean, here you and Johnny have brought such wonderful news and I’m falling apart.

Nicole, darling, what’s wrong? Oh, uh, Chanel and I were just talking and I, I got emotional, understandably. No, no, not understandably. I should be focusing on the positive, and this baby is going to bring so much joy to all of us. Right, Grandpa EJ? Oh, of course, yes. Yeah. Okay, well, uh, I think we probably better head upstairs.

Okay. Right. Okay. And thank you, Nicole, for I’ll, um, I’ll see you guys later, okay?

Oh, my precious Nicole, I wish I could take your pain away. No one can. But I, I, I do, I do seem to move forward since, you know, I, I have a daughter. And I have a husband and a new job. Uh,

but I just, I have to accept the fact that The pain is always gonna be there. It is never gonna go away.

Hey, sweet boy.

I’ve come to love so much.

I’m gonna miss you. So much. I’m never, I’m never gonna stop missing you. Do you think it’s, what

you think about going to meet your own mommy and daddy now? Yeah.

I know. And don’t think about leaving at all. I’ll be back.

And you’ll pay for what you’ve done. I

want to help Everett in any way that I can, but what can I do? The most effective treatment for DID is intense, prolonged psychotherapy. Well, that’s if Bobby or Everett is a minimal to being helped. Right. And you’re hoping that I can convince him to get back into treatment? I think you’re the best shot we have.

You have a prolonged friendship. He trusts you.

Then I’m in. I’ll do whatever I can. All right. And this is the first step. Right. Um, is there any particular strategy to, uh, You know, persuade Everett that he has to get help. I think the best strategy is to proceed carefully. If he has a sense that you’re forcing him, he’ll become defiant and resistant.

Right. I understand. In short, we have to proceed very carefully. Yeah. But first, we have to find him.

So, how did it feel finally telling people about the pregnancy? Well, uh, EJ and Nicole are family, so It felt right. And, uh, what did your dad have to talk to you about? Why did he need to talk to you privately? Um, yeah, he just, um, you know, since he, you know, He hired that specialist. He now knows of all of the risks and dangers associated with the baby being exposed to radiation, so.

So? So Johnny, what did he say to you? So he just said, you know, he didn’t want me to worry about any of the bills that he’s got us covered. Oh! Wow, well that was, that was really, really kind of him. Yeah. So how was your talk with, um, Oh, man, it was so sad. Yeah, oh, look at this little book she gave me. She said she got it at her shower.

And she, uh, she kept it? Yeah. Yeah, she got rid of everything else, but she said she couldn’t bring herself to get rid of this book. Oh, that was, uh, very sweet of her to give it to you. Yeah. Yeah But Johnny she is just She’s still in such terrible pain Still grieving that little boy. She and your dad boss now with us You know having a baby of our own.

Yeah, it’s gonna make it even harder for her to heal I mean once I start showing and then the baby is born It’s just gonna be a constant reminder of her loss, you know, but there’s there’s No avoiding that, right? Yeah, there is. We could move out, get a place of our own.

Feeling better, I hope. I am. Thank you, honey, for taking such good care of me. It’s what I love to do. I’ll get it. Oh, maybe it’s the delivery you’re expecting. Geez. We’ll see. Oh.

Eric. Jude. What brings you by? Hey, Eric. Oh, hey cutie. What are you doing here?

Eric, what’s going on?

Jude. What about Jude? Your son.

He didn’t die.

Jude is your son. What? How? What? How?

Oh, I know, I know. I know. I know. Hey, buddy. Hey, buddy.
